Valerie Lyrics

There comes a time in a man's life
Where he must take responsibility
For the choices he has made
And there are certain things that he must do
Things that he must say

Like I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody's going to know if it's true, ooh

I never thought I'd feel this kind of hesitation (to put)
My hand on another girl
I wish I didn't have to lie
I wish I could let you know

'Cause I love you
And I need you
I only want you
And nobody's going to know if it's true

Valerie (oh, Valerie)
I know you can see through me
(I know you can see through my lies)
Valerie (oh, Valerie)
You just choose to never know
(No, you just don't know what I do, what I do, oh, Valerie)
Valerie
Why pretend to trust in me?
(I don't know why you try to trust in me baby, but I think I know)
Valerie (I know, Valerie)
You'd rather this than be alone, oh, oh, oh

'Cause I love you
Woah, and I need you
I only want you, oh
And nobody's going to know if it's true, Oh
'Cause I love you, ooh
And I need you
I only want you, ooh
And nobody's going to know if it's true

And I love you
'Cause I love you baby
And I need you
When I need, need
I only want you
And nobody gonna know, ooh

Valerie Meanings

I can interpret this 2 ways 1. The most common interpretation: He doesn't love her, he only says he loves her cause "nobody's gonna know if it's true" That she knows he cheats but accepts it because "You'd rather this than be alone" He hasn't reached that time in a man's life when he must take responsibility, the time to do & say certain things. I'm sure he's talking about being honest even though it may hurt someone. 2. He loves Valerie and feels bad about cheating, that's why he hesitates - but it's the behavior he knows & is comfortable with. He knows Valerie is aware he cheats & stays because she'd rather pretend than be alone. This is where you can take the 1st verse abt a time in a man's life & interpret it differently that his hesitation is because he loves her & the time in a man's life to do & say certain things mean he needs to change his behavior to love & honor this woman who has stayed with him. I'll leave it to you to decide which interpretation you like better.
