  • I ran into some girls who knew you today
    They tried to tell me some things
    But I know there's always two sides to a story

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (No, no, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (First verse)

    I don't understand why it's happening
    And I'm tryin' to ignore the things I hear
    People saying things all up in my ear
    And I'm wondering is it the truth I fear

    You don't need to explain, 'cause baby, I don't care
    Whatever happened then was then, then was then
    All that really matters, girl, that it's you and me
    Whatever was then is gone, we can't change it now

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Oh)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me (Close to me, yeah)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (There's always two sides to a
    story, mmm, hmm)

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Mmm, no)
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (They don't want you
    gettin' close to me, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (Mmm, hmm)

    Met some others girls and they started tellin' me
    How you used to carry on back then with them
    And they tried to tell me things like you ain't changed one bit
    But they ain't there to see the things I see

    You don't need to explain, I just want you to know
    It starts from now and not back then, then was then
    All that really matters, girl, that it's you and me
    Whatever was did, it's gone, it's history

    I don't give a damn about what others say (I don't give a damn)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me (See you gettin' close)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (There's always two sides to a
    story)

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Yes, it is)
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (Want you gettin' close)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (Baby, can you tell me
    one thing)
    There's always two sides to a story (Can we go)

    On and on and on and on and on and on and on
    Can we go on and on and on and on and on and on
    Can we go on and on and on and on and on and on
    Can we go on and on and on and on and on and on

    I don't give a damn about what others say (No)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me
    (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me (Mmm, hmm)
    There's always two sides to a story (There's always two sides)

    I don't give a damn about what others say (There's always two sides)
    They just don't want you gettin' close to me (No, no, no, no, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (I don't give a damn)
    There's always two sides to a story ('Cause there's always two sides to
    a story, baby)

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    (Oh...they don't want you getting close to me)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    (No, I don't give a damn what happened before me)

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (I don't give a damn,
    no, no, no)
    There's always two sides to a story (All I know is that I love you,
    darlin')

    I don't give a damn about what others say (Mmm)
    They just can't see you gettin' close to me (All I know is that I need
    you)
    I don't give a damn about what happened before me
    There's always two sides to a story (Oh, I don't care about what
    happened before me, baby)

    I don't give a damn about what others say
    (They're just jealous of you and they want your place)
    I don't really care about what happened before me (No, no)
    There's always two sides to a story (No, no) Writer/s: ELGIN LUMPKIN, TIMOTHY N MOSLEY
