  • Take a minute, girl, come sit down
    And tell us what's been happening
    In your face, I can see the pain
    Don't you try to convince us that you're happy, yeah
    We've seen this all before
    Brothers taking advantage of the passion
    Because we've come too far
    For you to feel alone
    You don't let him walk over your heart
    I'm telling you

    Girl, I can tell you been crying
    And you needing someone to talk to
    Girl, I can tell he's been lying
    And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
    Girl, you don't have to be hiding
    Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
    I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
    Don't you know that we love you

    See what y'all don't know about him
    Is I can't let him go because he needs me
    It ain't really him, it's stress from his job
    And I ain't making it easy
    I know you see him bugging most of the time
    But I know he been tired, he don't mean it
    It gets hard sometimes
    But I need my man
    I don't think y'all understand
    I'm telling you

    Girl, I can tell you been crying (we understand)
    And you needing someone to talk to (don't be ashamed, I'm your friend)
    Girl, I can tell he's been lying (I can tell he's been lying to you)
    And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you (he's no good for you)
    Girl, you don't have to be hiding
    Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
    I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
    Don't you know that we love you

    Girl, I can tell you been crying (I can tell you been crying)
    And you needing someone to talk to (I can see it in your eyes)
    Girl, I can tell he's been lying (I can tell he's been lying)
    And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you (I can see it in the way you move)
    Girl, you don't have to be hiding (I know who you are)
    Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you (I know what you're feeling, girl)
    I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
    Don't you know that we love you, girl

    Girl, take a good look at yourself
    He got you going through hell
    We ain't never seen you down like this
    What you mean you don't need us to help
    We known each other too well

    Girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
    Don't you know that we love you (oh, yeah, yeah)

    Girl, I can tell you been crying (oh, yeah)
    And you needing someone to talk to (I've been knowing you since you were ten)
    Girl, I can tell he's been lying (you can not hide from your friends)
    And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you (girl)
    Girl, you don't have to be hiding
    Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
    I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
    Don't you know that we love you

    Girl, I can tell you been crying
    And you needing somebody to talk to
    Girl, I can tell he's been lying
    And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
    Girl, you don't have to be hiding
    Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
    I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
    Don't you know that we love you Writer/s: Angela Beyince, Beyonce Knowles, Don Davis, Eddie Robinson, Kelendria Rowland, Michelle Williams, Patrick Douthit, Sean Garrett
