Before You Were My Man

Album: The Truth (2008)
  • Na-na-na-na-na

    0h-oh

    Baby take a seat, I got somethin' I wanna say to you,
    Before things get crazy, I'm a need to let out the truth.
    I wanna tell ya, no, I have to tell ya,
    I gotta let this out before he do.

    And before you say a word I'm a need your undivided please.
    Until I'm finished just try not to say a thing.
    Oh in a way it's just so complicated to fix my mouth and say these words to you.

    See it's not what you're thinking, so don't jump to conclusions,
    And it's really not that bad, don't wanna cause confusion.
    Put yourself in my position, just hear me out and listen, understand my condition.
    Gotta let you know so here I go...

    [Chorus]
    Before you were my man, I was chillin' with this guy,
    Before you were my man, little did I know that he'd know you,
    You should understand and know the circumstance
    Didn't know he was your friend, before you were my man

    I met him at this party, sittin' at the park he,
    Walked right up to me, bought me some Bacardi,
    Caught up in the moment, I was feeling lonely,
    Don't know how it happened
    But this was all before you were my man

    Now that I confessed
    I should explain myself, it lasted for so long
    Swear that it was nothing else
    Just take a minute to, take it all in
    Even though it's hard for you to do

    I can tell that you're upset, by the look you have upon your face
    Let me apologize, for taking so long to say
    That your his friend, huh, he was my man
    I know it's hard for you to understand

    See it's not what you're thinking, so don't jump to conclusions,
    And it's really not that bad, don't wanna cause confusion.
    Put yourself in my position just hear me out and listen, understand my condition.
    Gotta let you know so here I go..

    [Chorus]

    I met him at this party
    Sittin' at the park he,
    Walked right up to me, bought me some Bacardi,
    Caught up in the moment, I was feeling lonely,
    Don't know how it happened
    But this was all before you were my man

    Yeah I know, it's crazy
    Now when we come around, you think about what went down
    You should have known, cause when we'd come through
    I would up and leave the room, avoiding the truth.

    [Chorus]

    I met him at this party
    Sittin' at the park
    Walked right up to me, bought me some Bacardi,
    Caught up in the moment, I was feeling lonely,
    Don't know how it happened
    But this was all before you were my man

    My man, My man, My man,
    Yo
    (Oh oh)
    It's crazy that I have to tell you this right here.
    (Yea)
    But it starts to get obvious when he came around
    I'm glad I got this off my chest.
    And I hope it doesn't change anything between us.
