[Chorus]
All that I been givin'
Is this thing that I've been living
They got me in the system
Why they gotta do me like that
Try'd to make it my way
But got sent up on the highway
Why, oh why
Why they gotta do me like that

[Verse 1]
Why do you let him disrespect you
Like you're not a woman
Oh baby why
And why do you let him put his hands on you
Like you a rag doll
Oh baby girl why
Why you let him do it
Why you go through it
Baby I just wanna know why
Why you let him degrade you
And act like he made you
Baby ask yourself why
Why you hiding what you feel inside
Why you don't deserve better
Girl why
You put up with the games
You let him do his thing
Baby I just gotta know why baby
Oh why'd you let him go and black your eye
Why don't you even put up a fight
Why'd you have his baby
And why you still his lady
And why not take the kids and just ride
And why you stay at home alone at night

[Chorus]
All that I been givin'
Is this thing that I've been living
They got me in the system
Why they gotta do me like that
Try'd to make it my way
But got sent up on the highway
Why, oh why
Why they gotta do me like that

[Verse 2]
While he go run the streets, that ain't right
Why you live like a child
He's tearing you down
Oh baby I just wanna know why
And I know there's a feeling
Of obligation in a relationship
But you don't wanna get to the point
Where you're just foolish (hey)
I know it's gonna hurt
When you think about the good times in the past
But you can't let a man mistreat you
Even if you feel he's all that you have
Promises meant the world to me
When they were plans of what our love would bring
I couldn't wait for the time to see
Your promises became reality
But then one day things weren't the same
I tried to figure out what changed
Next day, you weren't there with me
A sense of loneliness I couldn't believe

[Chorus]
All that I been givin'
Is this thing that I've been living
They got me in the system
Why they gotta do me like that
Try'd to make it my way
But got sent up on the highway
Why, oh why
Why they gotta do me like that

[Bridge]
You told me that you would always love me
How could you break this promise to me, baby?
So why did you have to leave?
Me with the wrong impression

You told me that you would always love me
How could you break this promise to me, baby?
So why did you have to leave?
Me with the wrong impression

[Chorus]
All that I been givin'
Is this thing that I've been living
They got me in the system
Why they gotta do me like that
Try'd to make it my way
But got sent up on the highway
Why, oh why
Why they gotta do me like that
