  • Go ahead just leave, can't hold you, you're free
    You take all these things, if they mean so much to you
    I gave you your dreams, 'cause you meant the world
    So did I deserve to be left here hurt
    You think I don't know you're out of control
    I ended up finding all of this from my boys
    Girl, you're stone cold, you say it ain't so,
    You already know I'm not attached to material

    I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
    I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love
    My love

    Yeah
    What did I do but give love to you
    I'm just confused as I stand here and look at you
    From head to feet, all that's not me
    Go 'head, keep the keys, that's not what I need from you
    You think that you know (I do), you've made yourself cold (oh yeah)
    How could you believe them over me, I'm your girl
    You're out of control (so what?), how could you let go (oh yeah)
    Don't you know I'm not attached to material

    I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
    I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love

    I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
    I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love

    So all this love I give you, take it away, (Unh, uh huh)

    You think material's the reason I came, (Unh, uh huh)

    If I had nothing would you want me to stay (Unh, uh huh)

    You keep your money, take it all away

    I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
    I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love

    I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
    I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love

    I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
    I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
    I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love

    Oh, my love, I'm taking back my love
    Oh, my love, my love Writer/s: ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, FRANKIE STORM, NADIR KHAYAT
