  • Love is life and life is living
    It's very special
    All my love

    Oh
    (Baby, don't go)
    (Baby, don't go) Yeah
    (Baby, don't go, uh)
    (Baby, don't go) Yeah
    (Baby, don't go)
    (Baby, don't go) Yeah, yeah
    (Why you act like that?)

    It's such a shame, but I'm leaving
    Can't take the way you mistreated me
    And it's crazy, but oh, baby
    It don't matter, whatever, don't phase me

    I don't believe you wanna leave like this
    I don't believe I just had my last real kiss
    I do believe we'll laugh and reminisce
    Wait a minute, don't bounce, baby let's talk about this, man

    Well, I'm bouncing and I'm out, son
    I gotta leave you alone

    'Cause I'm good holding down my spot
    And I'm good reppin' the girls on the block
    And I'm good, I got this thing on lock
    So without me you'll be fine, right

    All my pride is all I have
    (Pride is what you had, baby girl, I'm what you have)
    You'll be needing me, but too bad
    (Be easy, don't make decisions when you mad)
    The path you chose to run alone
    (I know you're independent, you can make it on your own)
    Here with me you had a home, oh, yeah
    (But time is of the essence, why spend it alone, huh)

    The nights I waited up for you (oh, boy)
    Promises you made about coming through
    So much time you wasted
    That's why I had to replace you

    It makes a cat nervous, the thought of settling down
    Especially me, I was creeping all over town
    I thought my tender touch could lock you down
    I knew I had you, as cocky as it sounds
    The way you used to giggle right before I put it down
    It's better when you angry, come here, I'll prove it now, come here

    Stop playing you gamin'
    I gotta leave you alone

    'Cause I'm good holding down my spot (stop acting like that)
    And I'm good reppin' the girls on the block (now you know you need to stop)
    And I'm good, I got this thing on lock
    So without me you'll be fine, right (here we go)

    All my pride is all I have
    (Pride is what you had, baby girl, I'm what you have)
    You'll be needing me, but too bad
    (Be easy, don't make decisions when you mad)
    The path you chose to run alone
    (I know you're independent, you can make it on your own)
    Here with me you had a home
    But time is of the essence, why spend it alone, huh

    People make mistakes to make up, to break up
    To wake up cold and lonely, chill, baby, you know me
    You love me, I'm like your homey
    Instead of beef you come hold me
    I promise I'm not a phony
    Don't bounce, baby, console me, come here

    Ain't nothing you can say to me that can change my mind
    I gotta let you go now
    And nothing will ever be the same, so just be on your way
    Go ahead and do your thing now
    And there's no more to explain to me, you know
    I know your game and I'm feeling what you do

    So I'm bouncing and I'm out, son
    I gotta leave you alone, yeah, yeah

    All my pride is all I have
    (Pride is what you had, baby girl, I'm what you have)
    You'll be needing me, but too bad
    (Be easy, don't make decisions when you mad)
    The path you chose to run alone
    (I know you're independent, you can make it on your own)
    Here with me you had a home, oh, yeah
    (But time is of the essence, why spend it alone, huh)

    All my pride is all I have
    (Pride is what you had, baby girl, I'm what you have)
    You'll be needing me, but too bad
    (Be easy, don't make decisions when you mad)
    The path you chose to run alone
    (I know you're independent, you can make it on your own)
    Here with me you had a home, oh, yeah
    (But time is of the essence, why spend it alone, huh)

    I promise you
