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.
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-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.
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.
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-bye.
