    "Thin Line" Lyrics

    Jurassic 5 feat. Nelly Furtado

    Yo, this is a lesson in friendship
    The depths of a kinship
    Where women and men begin with, and then slip
    My pen drips as I scribble my thoughts
    On thin strips of emotion
    A fraction, seduction, attraction,
    Eruption of passion corrupts it
    Life lasting friendships involved
    Would love to cross the line
    But that's why we built these walls

    CHORUS (Akil)

    We've been friends for a long time
    A very close friend of mine
    Love you like you was mine
    But respect the thin line
    Love you like you was mine
    Think about you all the time
    Very close friend of mine
    But please respect the thin line

    Opposites attract
    When the female and male come in contact
    Sticky situation in fact
    Trying not to let the feelings catch
    But there's a thin line between both of ya'll
    So you respect that
    And entertain an idea but get brought
    Back to reality

    And could you really live with that
    Decision, based on intuition
    You love and keep it distant
    Hug and kiss the friendship

    MARC 7
    An ongoing friendship
    We was people to begin with
    Disrespect was not intended
    But your feelings sparked a sentence
    Sometimes you're too intense
    In your quest to invent
    The perfect man
    Please understand my rhyme is your repent

    CHORUS (Akil/Nelly) X2
    Too bad that we became friends first

    And I'm not an expert on how relationships work
    But, from the minute it was known
    It changed the whole tone
    The way we spoke on the phone
    Yo, it was cool but I felt it wasn't enough
    And I was stuck when your moms would pick it up
    Over you all my buddies would swoon
    But I felt we were in tune
    You let me up in your room (damn)
    But to me girl you're still off limits
    No matter all the times that I hinted
    Infatuation was authentic
    But yo I just pretended
    So I wouldn't lose the friendship
    Maybe I should spill all my guts
    Or write a letter, then tear it up
    Or do a song just to say what's up
    I want just a touch


    I can't do this anymore
    See my heart just falls out when you walk in the door
    Friendship turned into love
    On some weak tip
    See I can't comprehend even if I knew it
    Can't do justice with these things that I'm feeling
    You've got someone else don't want to be caught stealing
    Hell, if she knew she would never leave us alone in the room

    Yo, this was a lesson in friendship
    I stress in this sentence
    Should women and men be friends first
    And then slip
    My pen drips as I scribble my thoughts on thin strips of devotion

    Opposites attract
    And best friends make a perfect match
    If you only knew that
    Once you cross ain't no turning back
    The minute you let him in it and he hit that
    That's that

    MARC 7
    We was people to begin with
    But you was too relentless
    Jeopardizing kinship
    Respect is intended
    Resolve is my intent
    While we've got an in
    I'm trying to salvage a friendship
