H-hold up, hold up
Slow down, slow down
Listen, give me 10 minutes
Well, well gimme 5 minutes
Aight, b-before you leave
I just need these last 4 minutes

Pardon me if I'm talking fast
And stumbling all over my words
I heard you were leavin' town
I thought I'd be the one to know first

If you have a minute let me talk to you
And see what's going on
Don't say it's nothing
When it's gotta be something that's gone wrong

Now let me explain but I don't know what to say
Cause I don't know what the hell happened
I come in the house to try to work it out
And all you're doing is packing

Close your suitcase
Let me think straight
Damn, what could be the reason?
Baby, talk to me I'm almost outta time

I only got 4 minutes to do what I gotta do
To prove to you that I'm gon' do anything
Only got 4 minutes to say what I gotta say
To make you stay and show you that I done changed, baby

Cause in 4 minutes I'll never have my girl again
In 4 minutes I'ma lose her to some other man
4, no less no more
I'm desperate cause the clock's ticking
Only got 4 minutes to go

Who are these people? I don't know
In my house and they scratching my floors
Takin' furniture outside
And the U-Haul pulled up to my door

What's the reason that I get this feelin'
That you can't keep it real with me?
Is it cause of the prior relationships
That I had off in the streets?

Never mind that, this is your conscience speaking
And you need to get your girl back
You gotta find a way to try to get to her heart
I'm takin' suggestions, I've learned my lesson
And conscience you're my last lifeline
I'm down to my last second

I only got 4 minutes to do what I gotta do
(4 minutes to go)
To prove to you that I'm gon' do anything
Only got 4 minutes to say what I gotta say
To make you stay and show you that I done changed
(I'm a changed man)

Cause in 4 minutes I'll never have my girl again
In 4 minutes I'ma lose her to some other man
(I'll be all alone)
4, no less no more
I'm desperate cause the clock's ticking
(Baby)
Only got 4 minutes to go

I've done things in my past
I thought this love would last
But I can't let you go baby
You're my everything lady

The reason I smile
And the reason I talk baby
The reason I breathe
The only one for me, yea

You can't go through with this
If you left me my life wouldn't exist
Cause I'm still in love with you

And that's my word
I don't give a damn what you heard
Oh, baby I'll be true

I only got 4 minutes
(Oh I got 4)
And I'm running out of time
I only got 4 minutes
(Only 4 more minutes)
I only got 4 minutes

4 minutes I'll never have my girl again
(I'll never have)
In 4 minutes
(Oh no)
I'ma lose her to some other man
(I'ma lose her)

4, no less no more
(Oo ho)
I'm desperate cause the clock's ticking
(And I just can't take it)
(I don't want it happen, I won't let it happen)
Only got 4 minutes to go
(Oh no)

Only got 4 minutes
To tell you everything I love about you
4 minutes to say I need you
(I need you)
I can't live without you

I'm out of time
(Out of time)
Gotta say what's on my mind
(What's on my mind baby)
Just to keep you in my life
Aw, damn I'm outta time
