  • She said, "Baby, do you ever miss bein' alone?"
    I said, "Hell no, I don't"
    She said, "Do you really think I'm where you belong?"
    I said, "You know and I know
    You're perfect for me
    Everything I'll ever need"
    I ain't playin'
    What I'm sayin'

    When I got what I got, I don't miss what I had
    The old me before you belongs to the past
    In the back of your mind, you might think there's somethin' more I want
    But when I got what I got, girl, I don't

    I said, "Baby, do you know you sound a little crazy,
    When you're talkin' like that, girl?"
    Ain't no second thoughts, no regrets, no kinda maybe
    No wishin' I turned back
    Before you came along
    I could go on and on
    Girl, just kiss me
    You're all that I want

    When I got what I got, I don't miss what I had
    The old me before you belongs to the past
    In the back of your mind, you might think there's somethin' more I want
    But when I got what I got, girl, I don't

    She said, "Baby, do you ever miss bein' alone?"
    I said, "Hell no, I don't"

    When I got what I got, I don't miss what I had
    The old me before you belongs to the past
    In the back of your mind, you might think there's somethin' more I want
    But when I got what I got, girl, I don't
    No, I don't
    No, I don't
    When I got what I got, girl, I don't Writer/s: Alexander Palmer, Michael Tyler Spragg, Thomas Archer
