    (Faithful to thee)
    I want to be
    (Faithful to thee)
    Yes, its for the people, God moves, yeah

    [Verse 1]
    I was rollin' around, in my mind it occurred
    What if God was a her?
    Would I treat her the same? Would I still be runnin' game on her?
    In what type of ways would I want her?
    Would I want her for her mind or her heavenly body?
    Couldn't be out gettin' bogus with someone so godly
    If I was wit' her would I still be wantin' my ex?
    The lies, the greed, the weed, the sex
    Wouldn't be ashamed to give her part of my check
    Wearin' her cross, I mean the heart on my neck
    Her I would reflect on the streets of the Chi'
    Ride wit' her, 'cause I know for me she'd die
    Through good and bad call on her like I'm chirpin' her
    Couldn't be jealous 'cause other brothers worship her
    Walk this earth for her, glory, I'm grateful
    To be in her presence I try to stay faithful

    [Chorus]
    Faithful to thee
    Faithful to thee
    Faithful to thee
    I'd like to be her very best friend

    [Verse 2]
    He worked with her, she was his lady's best friend
    Even if they don't try some ladies test men
    And this was a test that was bigger than him
    Some believe its the nature that is given to men
    He had a good gig, a wife, a kid, a decent home
    One reason or another couldn't find peace at home
    She asked, "Why do men always have to stray?"
    He said, "I'm bad, not as bad as Eric Benet"
    "I used to take 'em out to eat but they wasn't really eatin'
    Mighta got a little head but I wasn't really cheatin'"
    It's hard when your lady don't believe what you say
    And what you did in the past you gotta live with today
    She asked if they could spend the night together
    He thought, and said, "I'm tryin' to get my life together"
    Went home to his lady, these were his confessions
    "Baby you a blessin' and my best friend"

    [Chorus]

    [Bilal]
    Faithful to thee
    Faithful to thee

    [John Legend & Bilal]
    I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be so faithful
    I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be so faithful

    [Bilal & John Legend: x3]
    So [Repeat: x6]
    So faithful

    [Bilal & John Legend
    So [Repeat: x5]
    That's what I'm gonna do
    Faithful to the end
    That's what I'm gonna do
    Faithful to the end
    That's what I'm gonna do
    Faithful to the end
    [John Legend] Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
