  • Look
    We gotta talk
    Dang, I know, I know
    But it's, it's just some things I gotta get off chest, aright?

    Yeah, whoa, whoa-whoa
    Listen

    Baby, come here and sit down, let's talk
    I got a lot to say so I guess I'll start by
    Sayin' that I love you
    But you know this thing ain't been a walk in the park for us
    I swear it'll only take a minute
    You'll understand when I finish, yeah
    And I don't wanna see you cry
    But I don't wanna be the one to tell you a lie so

    How do you let it go when you
    You just don't know what's on
    The other side of the door
    When you're walking out? Talk about it
    And everything I tried to remember to say just went out my head
    So I'ma do the best I can to get you to understand 'cause I know

    There's never a right time to say goodbye
    But I gotta make the first move
    'Cause if I don't you're gonna start hating me
    'Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
    Girl, it's not you, it's me, I
    Kinda gotta figure out what I need, oh
    There's never a right time to say goodbye
    But we know that we gotta go our separate ways
    And I know it's hard but I gotta do it and it's killing me
    'Cause there's never a right time, right time to say goodbye

    Girl, I know your heart is breaking
    And a thousand times I found myself asking, "Why? Why?"
    Why am I taking so long to say this?
    But trust me, girl, I never
    Meant to crush your world and I never
    Thought I would see the day we'd grow apart
    And I wanna know

    How do you let it go when you
    You just don't know what's on
    The other side of the door
    When you're walking out? Talk about it
    Girl, I hope you understand what I'm tryna say
    We just can't go on
    Pretending that we get along
    Girl, how you not gon' see it? (Oh, oh, yeah)

    There's never a right time to say goodbye
    But I gotta make the first move
    'Cause if I don't you're gonna start hating me
    'Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
    Girl, it's not you, it's me, I
    Kinda gotta figure out what I need, oh
    There's never a right time to say goodbye
    But we know that we gotta go our separate ways
    And I know it's hard but I gotta do it and it's killing me
    'Cause there's never a right time, right time to say goodbye

    Listen to your heart, girl, you know
    We should be apart, baby, I
    I just can't do it
    I, I just can't do it
    Listen to your heart, girl, you know
    We should be apart, baby, I
    I just can't do it
    And sometimes it makes me wanna cry
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Do you hear me crying?
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (oh, oh)
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    There's never a right

    There's never a right time to say goodbye (oh yeah)
    But I gotta make the first move
    'Cause if I don't you're gonna start hating me (you're gonna start hating me, baby)
    'Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you (no more)
    Girl, it's not you, it's me, I (it's me, yeah)
    Kinda gotta figure out what I need, oh (about you and me)
    There's never a right time to say goodbye (oh, no it ain't)
    But we know that we gotta go our separate ways (go, yeah, yeah)
    And I know it's hard but I gotta do it and it's killing me
    'Cause there's never a right time, right time to say goodbye

    There's never a right time to say goodbye
    But I gotta make the first move
    'Cause if I don't you're gonna start hating me
    'Cause I really don't feel the way I once felt about you
    Girl, it's not you, it's me, I
    Kinda gotta figure out what I need, oh
    There's never a right time to say goodbye
    But we know that we gotta go our separate ways
    And I know it's hard but I gotta do it and it's killing me
    'Cause there's never a right time, right time to say Writer/s: Bryan Cox, Kendrick Dean, Taurian Shropshire
