I know I vowed to never do this again but I
I guess this seems to be the only thing I'm good at

Got something that you need to know
You're the realest s*** I never wrote
Can't hold it, gotta let it go
Know, that I mean every note
Yeah, yeah, listen baby

Let me start by saying that the way I
Feel for you has never once changed
And the games I've played, mistakes I made
Leave me sorrier than you'll ever know

We got a problem, baby, I can't lie 'cause lately I realize
That I never knew that we was on the same playing field
Knew that it was wrong but we let it be
And I know you never knew when you said, "I do"
That you would have to face all the pain you feel

It's killing me, girl, that you have to live with this
Live with the lies I tell, live with the pain you feel
Knowing the man you love is fooling around

Oh, baby, said it's killing me, girl, said I just don't understand
Why you wanna be with this kind of man? Oh, ho
Why would you love a fool with all the things I do?
I know it's hard for you, hard for you to live with this

Trade memories for moments, trade love to be lonely
Guess it's just the man in me, blame it on celebrity
When the night time feel like the right time
And then spotlight feel like the bright light
But it's really just my fears and it still don't dry your tears

When I, say she ain't you and I really love you more
When you say if it's true why'd you do it for?
And I, I really don't have no excuse
I break your heart, make you cry, I just wanna say goodbye

And it's killing me, girl, that you have to live with this
Live with the lies I tell, live with the pain you feel
Knowing the man you love is fooling around

Oh, baby, said it's killing me, girl, said I just don't understand
Why you wanna be with this kind of man? Oh, ho
Why would you love a fool with all the things I do?
I know it's hard for you, hard for you to live with this

What I feel I don't even gotta write it, it's like poison in my body
And there's no way to deny that my heart is a time bomb
With seconds left to explode
But I gotta let you know before it blows

That it ain't on you, it's my fault
All the gossip and talk behind your back when you walk
By the time you will know, before long you will see
That you deserve more, you deserve more
You deserve so much more than what am, I will be

And it's killing me, girl, that you have to live with this
Live with the lies I tell, live with the pain you feel
Knowing the man you love is fooling around

Oh, baby, said it's killing me, girl and I just don't understand
Why you wanna be with this kind of man? Oh, ho
Why would you love a fool with all the things I do?
I know it's hard for you, hard for you to live with this

Live with this, can you live with this, girl?
I just want you to know

Got something that you need to know
You're the realest s*** I never wrote
Can't hold it, gotta let it go
Know that I mean every note, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
