Written by babyface (1995)
Performed by mary j. blige

While all the time that I was lovin' you
You were busy lovin' yourself
I would stop breathin' if you told me to
Now you're busy loving someone else
Eleven years, out of my life
Besides the kids I've got nothing to show
Wasted my years, a fool of a wife
I shoulda left your ass long time ago

Well I'm not gon' cry
I'm not gon' cry, I'm not gon' shed no tears
No I'm not gon' cry, it's not the time
'cause you're not worth my tears

I was your lover and your secretary
Working every day of the week
Was at the job when no one else was there
Helping you get on your feet
Eleven years of sacrifice
And you can leave me at the drop of a dime
Swallowed my fears, stood by your side
I shoulda left your ass a thousand times

Hook

I know there are no guarantees
In love you take your chances
But somehow it seems unfair to me
Look at the circumstances
Through sickness and health, 'til death do us part
Those were the words that we said from our hearts
So now when you say that you're leaving me
I don't get that part

I was your lover and your secretary
Working every day of the week
Was at the job when no one else was there
Helping you get on your feet
Eleven years of sacrifice
And you can leave me at the drop of a dime
Swallowed my fears, stood by your side
I shoulda left your ass a thousand times

Hook
