This song right here's ta
That, that, that, that person
I ain't gonna even mention his name
That said I couldn't do nothing without him, um

Who are you to tell me
That I can't go on without
And why you telling me
I'm never gonna survive

Um, but once upon a time
Yes, I believed that lie
But sorry, no way no how
You can't control my mind

'Cause if I thought you were
The end all and my be all
I would've never left you alone
And I wouldn't be on my own
And I never, never, would've grown

Nawl, nawl, nawl
Ain't no way
Nawl, nawl, nawl
Ain't no way

You gonna take away
My joy, my peace, my strength
Thank you for the times
Of all the pain you gave me

The hate you showed to me
Taught me how to love myself
It's funny how you tried
To break down my pride

And my spirit, y'all
It doesn't it even matter now
'Cause I done moved on with my life
'Cause if I thought you were

The end all and my be all
I would've never left you alone
And I wouldn't be on my own
And I never would've wrote this song

Nawl, ain't no way!
I'm telling you
Nawl, ain't no way!
I'm telling you

'Cause if I thought you
Were the end all and my be all
I would've never left you alone
And I wouldn't be on my own
And I never would've found faith
I never would've loved again
