Apologize Lyrics

by Luther Vandross

Yeah
Yeah
Oo yeah

Your loves never been better
So good its a sin
But its time for a decision
Is it me or him?

Before you make your mind up, hear me
I just want you to see things clearly
This should be about love, not money
Dont let him try to take you from me

I dont wanna have to apologize
I dont wanna feel Ive been penalized
Just cause I can drive in a better car
Live in a bigger house just like a superstar

He says that I can only give you
Material things, but thats not true
You see my heart is rich with love for you
Dont let him make you doubt my love for you
Yeah, baby

I work hard for my money
No one gave it to me
But some fools think the deeper the pocket
The smaller the heart will be, not true

Im only tryin to share me with you
Look at all the lovin we do
Find the meaning in the words Im sayin
Im not just another player playin

I dont wanna have to apologize or give a damn
And I dont appreciate being criticized for who I am
Just cause I can buy you a lotta things or take you any place
Thats just what money brings

He wants you to believe that Im tryin to buy your love
Cause thats what he would do
He thinks since hes a man with nothing
That hes got better love for you, no way

Tell him now, let him go
Or I can no longer be yours
Tell him how you feel about me
I cant keep standing on the side
And let him fill your mind with lies about me

Leave him with his fallacies
I dont care what bull he believes
Tell him that enough is enough
Just dont return a disbeliever
Youve always been a willing receiver of my love

I dont think I have to apologize, I work for this
I dont wanna feel like Im penalized for being rich
Doesnt bother me where he thinks I stand
Im bein my true self, just doin what I can

He thinks I won you with materiality
But honey, you know thats not so
And even if he understood me
Its simply time for him to go, so let him go

I dont wanna change you
Cause Im in love with who you are
So I dont wanna apologize for bein a superstar
Havent I proved that Im here for you?
What am I guilty of? What did or didnt I do?

Maybe I cant be myself with somebody
Who believes such things are true
Im losing self-respect from trying
Im losing my desire too, I cant do it

I dont wanna have to apologize or give a damn
I dont wanna feel Ive been penalized for who I am
Just cause I can buy you a lotta things or take you any place
Thats just what money brings

He wants you to believe that Im tryin to buy your love
Cause thats what he would do
He says that hes a man with nothing
That hes got better love for you, no way
