Keep on pressuring me to do more and do more
But move on unless you can see that I'm all out
It ain't easy waking up early to stay up late
I know God won't put more on me, on me than I can take

And I know, I know

Yes, I know that I
I must take care of me
(You better love, you say, you love yourself first)
And I've been told that I
I can't put you above me
(You better love, you better love yourself first)

No, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I have decided to love myself
And no, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I'm not if you don't love, you can't love nobody else

I do love you

But sometimes I feel
(I feel)
Like this whole thing's so, so unfair
(So unfair)
And you don't even notice when you let me down now
So I pray everyday you start loving me
much better, much better, much better
(Oh)

Yes, I know that I
I must take care of me
(You better love, you say, love yourself first)
And I been told that I
Can't put you above me
(You better love, you better love yourself first)

I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I have decided to love myself
No, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I'm not if you don't love, you can't love nobody else
(Nobody else, nobody else)

You can't love nobody before you love yourself first
You gotta love yourself
(Keep on mistreating me)
Mind, body and soul and you can't put anybody before yourself
(Gotta love yourself)

And I know, I know

Yes, I know that I
I must take care of me
(You better love, you say, love yourself first)
And I've been told that I
I can't put you above me
(You better love, you better love yourself first)

No, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I have decided to love myself
And no, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I'm not if you don't love, you, you can't love nobody else

No, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I have decided to love myself
And no, I'm not gon keep on mistreating me
I'm not if you don't love, you can't love nobody else

Break it down now
Tie it down

Mistreating me
(No you cant)
Love yourself
