My eyes are green 'cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend
My eyes are green 'cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend
My eyes are green 'cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

I don't care, I swear, I'm too through with you, I am
You don't mean nothing to me
So go ahead and be with your friend

My eyes are green 'cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend
My eyes are green 'cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend
My eyes are green 'cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

I'm insecure but I can't help it
My mind says move on, my heart lacks behind
But I don't love you anymore
I'm so insecure
Never knew that love did this
Ooh, ooh

I can't remember the last time I felt this way about somebody
You've done something to my mind and I can't control it
But I don't love you any more, yes I do, I do
Loving you is wrong baby, ooh, ooh

La-di-da
Dum-dee-da-da
Dum-didi-da-da-da
Dum-didi-da-dum-di

I'm so confused, you tried to trick me, yeah
Ooh, ooh, oh
Never knew that love could hurt like this
Never thought I would but I got dissed

Makes me feel so sad and hurt inside
Feel embarrassed so I want to hide
Silly me I thought your love was true
Change my name to Silly E. Badu
Before I heal, it's gonna be a while
I know it's gonna be a while, chil'

I hope it's not too late
Too late, too late, too late
Feeling insecure
Your love has got me sore
I don't want no more
Oh, oh

It's too late, oh, oh, ooh, ooh
I'm sorry I love you
At first when you was cool
You told me you loved me too, ooh
And then you lost your love
And then you lost your love
And then you lost your love

You wanted me to go away but I can't go
See I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late

Just make love to me
Just one more time and then you'll see
I can't believe I made a desperate plea
Believe me yeah, yeah, no, oh

You see I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late
Don't you know, I can't leave, it's too late
Can't go no where, no
It's too late, it's too late
It's too late, it's too late

Yeah, come on, babe
Don't you want be strong with me?
You told me we could have a family
Want to run to me when you're down and low

But times get tough and there you go
Out the door, you wanna run again
Open your arms and you'll come back in
Wanna run 'cause you say you're afraid, afraid

Never knew what a friendship
Never knew how to really love
You can't be what I need you to
And I don't know what is up with you
I know our love will never be the same
But I can't stand the growing pains
