Gwen on being reluctant to work with Akon: “I kept getting people saying, ‘You’ve gotta work with this guy Akon.’ I was just agreeing to the session because everyone was in my ear. But then, I canceled a session because I was burned out, I was too tired, and I have a baby. Then Jimmy calls me and he says, ‘You can cancel everything else in your life. Just don’t cancel this session! You have to go and work with Akon.’ I said, ‘Okay, dude. I’ll go.'”

Lyrics:
Whohoe, whihoo
Whohoe, whihoo
Whohoe, whihoo
Whohoe, whihoo

If I could escape
I would, but first of all let me say
I must apologize for acting, stinking, treating you this way
Cause I’ve been acting like sour milk fell on the floor
It’s your fault you didn’t shut the refridgerator
Maybe that’s the reason I’ve been acting so cold

If I could escape
And re-create a place as my own world
And I could be your favorite girl
Forever, perfectly together
Tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?

If I could be sweet
I know I’ve been a real bad girl
I didn’t mean for you to get hurt
Forever, we can make it better
Tell me boy, Now wouldn’t that be sweet?
Sweet escape

(I wanna get away, to our sweet escape)

You let me down
I’m at my lowest boiling point
Come help me out
I need to get me out of this joint
Come on, let’s bounce
Counting on you to turn me around
Instead of clowning around let’s look for some common ground

So baby, times getting a little crazy
I’ve been getting a little lazy
Waiting for you to come save me
I can see that you’re angry
By the way the you treat me
Hopefully you don’t leave me
Want to take you with me

If I could escape
And re-create a place as my own world
And I could be your favorite girl
Forever, perfectly together
Tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?

If I could be sweet
I know I’ve been a real bad girl
I didn’t mean for you to get hurt
Forever, we can make it better
Tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?
Sweet escape

Whohoe, whihoo
Whohoe, whihoo
Whohoe, whihoo
Whohoe, whihoo

If I could escape

Cause I’ve been acting like sour milk fell on the floor
It’s your fault you didn’t shut the refridgerator
Maybe that’s the reason I’ve been acting so cold

If I could escape
And re-create a place in my own world
And I could be your favorite girl
Forever, perfectly together
Tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?

If I could be sweet
I know I’ve been a real bad girl
I didn’t mean for you to get hurt
Forever, we can make it better
Tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?
Sweet escape
