Tell me what
What about this woman makes me want to do right?
Want to switch it up and stay with her the whole night
I don't know
What it is, but it feels all right, yeah
Lord knows I tried (Lord knows I tried)
Lord knows I tried to convince myself that I wasn't going to lie (wasn't going to lie)
But there wasn't no way I was going to let this sweet love pass me by
Now I know what it is, it was just my pride

When his love (when his love)
Benefited a fool (benefited a fool)
I got nothing to lose (nothing to lose)
But everything is true
Now I know (now I know)
I know what I got to do (I know what I got to do)
Just stop lying to you (just stop lying, oh girl just stop lying)
And tell you the truth
'Cause when has love benefited a fool?

You were so fly, yeah
You know you should've been an angel (you know you should've been an angel)
With those diamond eyes
Girl you look good from every angle (you look good from every angle)
Now I see (now I see)
Girl all this time you've just been waiting on me (you been waiting on me)
And I know I don't deserve all that I receive from your love
But you never leave no, no, no

When his love (when his love)
Benefited a fool (benefited a fool)
I got nothing to lose (nothing to lose)
Oh everything grew to you
Now I know (now I know)
I know what I got to do (I know what I got to do)
Just stop lying to you (just stop lying, oh girl just stop lying)
And tell you the truth
'Cause when has love benefited a fool?

Good book says to cry (good book says to cry)
Comes before destruction (comes before destruction)
I've been destroyed (yeah)
If I ever lose your loving (yeah)
Girl I've done changed
No you didn't change me
Give you the plane
Your love has saved me yeah oh

When his love (when his love)
Benefited a fool (benefited a fool)
I got nothing to lose (nothing to lose)
Everything grew to you
Yeah, now I know (now I know)
I know what I got to do (I know what I got to do)
Just stop lying to you (just stop lying, oh girl just stop lying)
And tell you the truth
'Cause when has love benefited a fool?
