  • I know you've been hurt by someone else
    I can tell by the way you carry yourself
    If you let me, here's what I'll do
    I'll take care of you
    I've loved and I've lost

    I've asked about you and they've told me things
    But my mind didn't change
    I still the feel the same
    What's a life with no fun, please don't be so ashamed
    I've had mine, you've had yours we both know
    We know, they don't get you like I will
    My only wish is I die real
    'Cause that truth hurts, and those lies heal
    And you can't sleep thinking that he lies still
    So you cry still, tears all in the pillow case
    Big girls all get a little taste
    Pushing me away so I give her space
    Dealing with a heart that I didn't break
    I'll be there for you, I will care for you
    I keep thanking you, just don't know
    Trying to run from that, say you're done with that
    On your face girl, it just don't show
    When you're ready, just say you're ready
    When all the baggage just ain't as heavy
    And the parties over, just don't forget me
    We'll change the pace and we'll just go slow
    You won't ever have to worry,
    You won't ever have to hide
    And you seen all my mistakes
    So look me in my eyes

    'Cause if you let me, here's what I'll do
    I'll take care of you
    I've loved and I've lost

    It's my birthday, I get high if I want to
    Can't deny that I want you, but I lie if have to
    'Cause you don't say you love me
    To your friends when they ask you
    Even though we both know that you do (you do)
    One time, been in love one time
    You and all your girls in the club one time
    All so convinced that you're following your heart
    'Cause your mind don't control what it does sometimes
    We all have our nights though, don't be so ashamed
    I've had mine, you've had yours, we both know
    We know,
    You hate being alone, you ain't the only one
    You hate the fact that you bought the dream
    And they sold you one
    You love your friends but somebody shoulda told you somin' to save you
    Instead they say

    I know you've been hurt by someone else
    I can tell by the way you carry yourself
    If you let me, here's what I'll do
    I'll take care of you
    I've loved and I've lost Writer/s: Brook Benton, Aubrey Drake Graham, Noah James Shebib, Anthony George Palman, James Thomas Smith, Herbert Weiner, Wally Gold, John R Gluck
