Alicia Keys - Teenage Love Affair

Can't wait to get home
Baby dial your number
Can u pick up the phone
Cause I wanna holla
Daydreaming about you all day
In school can't concentrate
Want have your voice in my ear
'Till mama comes and says it's too late
Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
Cause I just don't want to say goodbye
Cause you are my baby baby

Nothing really matters
I don't really care
What nobody tell me
I'm gunna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair

I love our secret meetings
On the 5th floor stair case
I'm gonna give you this letter
Of all the things I can't say
Want you to be my first my last my ending and beginning (yeah)
I wrote your name in my book
Your last name my first
I'm your Mrs.

Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there somewhere to hide
I just don't want to say goodbye
Cause you are my baby baby

Nothing really matters
I don't really care
What nobody tell me
I'm gunna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair

Hey boy
You know I really like being with u
Just hanging out with you is fun

So maybe we can go to first base
Because I feel you
Second base
Want you to feel me too boy
Third base
Better pump the breaks
Oh baby slow down
I gotta go home now

Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
Cause I just don't want to say goodbye
Cause you are my baby baby

Nothing really matters
I don't really care
What nobody tell me
I'm gunna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair

My baby baby
Nothing really matters
I don't really care
What nobody tell me
I'm gunna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair

"Teenage Love Affair" is a soul–R&B song written by American singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, Jack Splash, Matthew Kahane, and Harold Lilly for Keys' third studio album, As I Am (2007). Released as the album's third single, it is produced by Keys and Splash and is based around a sample from The Temprees' 1972 song "(Girl) I Love You," written by Josephine Bridges, Carl Hampton, and Tom Nixon. The song ranked number twenty-three on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007. It impacted mainstream urban radio on April 21, 2008. Keys performed the song on Late Show with David Letterman on April 29, 2008. Swizz Beatz produced a remix of "Teenage Love Affair" featuring LL Cool J, using a sample from Slick Rick's 1988 song "Teenage Love" on it. According to Keys' official website and official fan club, the music video for "Teenage Love Affair," directed by Chris Robinson (with whom she had previously worked with on 2001's "Fallin'" and 2003's "You Don't Know My Name," among others), was filmed at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. Derek Luke plays Keys' love interest, and Anthony Hamilton, Jackie Long, Albert Daniels, Tristan Wilds, and Tanisha Scott make cameo appearances in the video as well. The video is based on Spike Lee's 1988 film School Daze, starring Laurence Fishburne, Tisha Campbell-Martin, and Kyme, among others. The video premiered across the U.S. on April 23, 2008 on MTV's TRL. That same day, Keys also appeared on BET's 106 & Park to premiere the video.
