Window Seat

Lyricist: Erykah Badu & James Poyser    Composer: Erykah Badu & James Poyser

Hey
Hey
Ohh, ohh, ohhh

So, presently I'm standing
Here right now, you're so demanding
Tell me what you want from me
Concluding, concentrating on my music, lover, and my babies
Make me wanna ask a lady for a ticket outta town

So can I get a window seat?
Don't want nobody, next to me
I just want a ticket outta town
A look around, and a safe touch down
Can I get a window seat?
Don't want nobody, next to me
I just want a chance to fly
A chance to cry, and a long bye

But I, I need you to want, me
I, need you to miss, me
I, need yo' attention, yes
I need you next to me, heh
Oh I, I need someone to clap for me(mm-hmm)
I need your direction

Somebody say come back
Come back, baby come back
(I want you to need me)
Come back, come back, baby come back
Come back, come back, baby come back
Come back, come back, baby come back

So, out my mind I'm tusslin'
Back and forth 'tween here and hustlin
I don't wanna time travel no mo'
I wanna be here, my thinkin
Say, on this porch I'm rockin
Back and forth like Lightnin' Hopkins
So if anybody speak to Scotty
Tell him, "Beam me up!"

So can I get a window seat?
Don't want nobody, next to me
I just want a ticket outta town
A look around, and a safe touch down
Can I get a window seat?
Don't want nobody, next to me
I just want a chance to fly
A chance to cry, and a long bye

But I, I need you to miss me
I, need somebody come get me
I, need your attention, yes
And I, need your energy, and I do
Ohh, ohh, I, I need someone to clap for me
And I, need your direction

Somebody say come back
Come back, baby come back
(I want you to need me)
Come back, come back, baby come back
Come back, come back, baby come back
Come back, come back, baby come back

So can I get a window seat?
Don't want nobody, next to me
I just want a ticket outta town
A look around, and a safe touch down
I just want a chance to fly
A chance to cry, and a long bye
