Isaac Hayes

"Ike's Rap VII/This Time I'll Be Sweeter"

Hi, come on in
Come on, it's ok
Have a seat, relax
Come on, relax, try and relax anyway
I know you're lookin' at me strangely
Because you... see I'm not ill
No, I wasn't ill, not in the sense that you were told I was
But I had to...use whatever means necessary
To get you to come over here
So I figured if I told you I was sick you'd come and see about me
At least it shows you how desperate I am to talk to you
And now that you're here
Just here me out, ok
And if you still stand on your conviction
Then there's nothing else I can do or say about it

Now, we were apart
And it doesn't make any sense that we're apart
Because we love each other
And when two people love each other
I don't think they should be apart, they shouldn't be suffering
Of course, there are some things that we both failed to do
One of the main things that's essential to any relationship is communication
And we did not communicate
You wouldn't talk to me and I wouldn't talk to you
'Cause you got a little paranoid
We had a good thing going

Of course when outsiders see that two people have got something going that's pretty good
They tend to become envious and they drop little things
You picked it up
And you went for it
Why did you go for it?
Because
I left a little too much slack in our relationship
I wasn't...as attentive to your needs as I should have been
I see it now
Because I've been doing a lot of thinking since you've been gone, and I've missed you so much
And at night when I lie in bed
I sometimes find myself reaching over, and you're not there
But you know, I din't even change the pillowcase because the sweet smell of you is still there
I miss you
I believe you miss me too
So let's get it back together, and this time I'll be sweeter
I promise you
We thought we had something going on
We'll have it now
So relax
Come on, relax
Take me in your arms
And let's pick up where we left off, the right way
I love you

...

Darlin', can't you see
What losin' you has done to me?
I'm not the same man I used to be

Please have a change of heart
Don't leave me standing in the dark
Don't let confusion keep us apart

Come back to me
And I'll guarantee
All the tenderness and love you'll ever need

This time I'll be sweeter (sweeter, sweeter)
Our love will run deeper (deeper, deeper)
I won't mess around
I won't let you down
Have faith in me
You gotta have faith in me

Since you've been away
I haven't seen the light of day
I'm so lost without you
I can't find my way

So won't you please be fair (Please)
And let me, let me show you how much I care
Say you'll be mine
And answer my prayer

Come back to me
And I promise I'll be
Everything that's bright and new
Your whole life through

This time I'll be sweeter (sweeter, sweeter)
Our love will run deeper (deeper, deeper)
I won't mess around
I won't let you down
Have faith in me
You gotta have faith in me

Yes, this time I'll be sweeter (sweeter, sweeter)
Our love, our love will run so much deeper (deeper, deeper)
I won't mess around
I won't, I won't, I won't let you down
Have faith in me
You gotta have faith in me
Have faith in me (x3)
I won't mess around
And I won't let you down

Have faith in me (x4)
(Please) Please have faith in me
(You gotta) You gotta have faith in me
(Come on and) Have faith in me
Have faith in me (x5)

Our love will be sweeter (sweeter x4)
So much deeper (deeper x4)
Said sweeter, sweeter, sweeter, sweeter
So much deeper (deeper x4)
