Love Story

This song is by Jin and appears on the album The Rest Is History (2004).

Its from the heart
This is from the heart right here
Everybody has a story to tell
Check this out yo

I knew this Chinese dude in Junior High
Part of my crew,
Everybody knew this kid
He was the talk of the school,
Intelligent and well spoken
Respected by teachers,
All the other students
Kept they eyes on the sneakers,
What can I say? You can tell he's cool
If you talk with him,
During fire drills
Girls would want to walk with him,
He can have any chick
Up in his view,
But there was only one girl
He wanted to call boo,
See it's all true
Found himself stressed in a dead end,
The girl he was feeling
Was obsessed with his best friend,
His best friend's a player
That's the reason he's pissed,
Plus he treat her
Like she don't even exist,
He ain't tryin' to hate on his man
But there was no helpin' it,
Wrote the girl a letter
Told her how he felt in it,
She was shocked at first
At him revealin' the truth,
But then she realized
That she was feelin' him too.

Oh I've been thinking of you
Oh I've been thinking of you
Oh I've been thinking of you
And you've been thinking of me

So you know as time goes by
Things get a little more serious
Just listen

It was strictly hip-hop
Not a bump to slow-jams all day,
Went to holdin' hands
To makin' out in the hall way,
Their relationship
Seemed like a dream come true,
As time went by
Their friendship grew,
Starin' at the stars
Tradin' secrets on the phone,
When her parents were at work
She would sneak him in her home,
He told her he was a virgin
The day that they met,
So on his birthday
He got a gift he'll never forget,
Females were jealous
But they still callin' him cute,
First day of summer school
They rocked the matching nautica suits,
Happy on each others arms
Can it be?
They found true love
Livin' in a fantasy,
Then reality attacks his pops
Couldn't see past the fact,
His son was asian
But his girlfriend was black?
Imagine having to choose
Between the one that you love or your fam?
That's like cutting off
Your right or left hand. Damn...

I know this sounds like a true story
It could have happened to any one of us
Its crazy though right?
Check it

Now if this sounds like a true story
That's probably cause it is,
And I know for a fact
'Cause I'm that Chinese kid,
Lookin' back now
I know it's more than just a crush,
I'm sayin' the whole experience
Taught me so much,
Love can overcome anything
That gets in its way,
That's the reason I still think
Of shorty till this day,
We talk now and then
She's doin' her thing,
We both all grown up
I think she's rockin' a ring,
I know she's proud of me
And all the things I've accomplished,
She was there when I was nobody
That's bein' honest,
Ain't no shame I'll admit it
She was there when I cried,
So in return
I wiped the tears from my eyes,
As far as my pops
He's alittle more open minded,
If his son is happy
He's a hundred percent behind it,
Now this is a song
I know I had to do,
'Cause all this stuff I went through
Might have happened to you.

(Last words)
Everybody remembers they first love
You only get one
You gotta remember
I just want you to know
Jin still thinking about you
I know you've been thinkin' about me too.
