  • Can you take me telling you the truth
    When I know the situation looks shady
    But my girl, will you
    Believe when I say I knew that you be tripping

    So I slept out in my ride in the driveway
    So before we get into the things that we shouldn't do
    I'ma need your undivided attention
    'Cause it's fantasies and reality
    Baby which one are we living in, oh

    When it hurts, will we still be
    The same two lovers
    All over each other
    When it hurts, will we still see
    What we got together
    Promise that we'll never
    Never ever be
    Temporary (Not another)
    Ordinary
    We should change people's definition of love
    So forget what you heard
    The only way that this will work
    Is if you love me when it hurts

    (Can you love when it hurts)

    I don't wanna blend in
    With every other relationship that be falling in and out girl (Not us)
    I knew that I tripped
    'Cause every time we argued
    I think about having someone on the side girl

    So before we get into the things that we shouldn't do
    I'ma need your undivided attention
    'Cause it's fantasies and reality
    Baby which one are we living in, oh

    When it hurts, will we still be
    The same two lovers
    All over each other
    When it hurts, will we still see
    What we got together
    Promise that we'll never
    Never ever be
    Temporary (Not another)
    Ordinary
    We should change people's definition of love
    So forget what you heard
    The only way that this will work
    You gotta love me when it hurts

    Baby girl we gotta face it
    There'll be times that we let each other down
    And on them days that you ain't feeling me
    Will you be able to stick around
    'Cause anything worth having is worth fighting for
    If we really want this thing to work
    We gotta go to war
    Girl, I'm in this thing
    I mean we're in this thing
    But through the tears will you still be here

    When it hurts, will we still be
    Same two lovers
    All over each other
    When it hurts, will we still see
    What we got together
    Promise that we'll never
    Never ever be
    Temporary (Not another)
    Ordinary
    I wanna change people's definition of love
    So forget what you heard
    'Cause the only way that this will work
    Is if you love me when it hurts

    When it hurts (When it hurts)
    Do you love me when it hurts
    Girl when it hurts (When it hurts)
    When it hurts (When it hurts)
    Do you love me when it hurts
    When it hurts (When it hurts)
    When it hurts (When it hurts)
    Do you love me when it hurts
    When it hurts (When it hurts)
    When it hurts (When it hurts)
    Do you love me when it hurts Writer/s: Antonio Dixon, Eric Dawkins, Myron Avant
