  • Lookin' at ya now I can tell that you and your new relationship ain't goin' well
    There's no reason your name should come up on my cell
    Unless you're unhappy but that shouldn't be the case cause you said
    Said he was the one baby yes you said said you were in love (love)
    When you left me u said that you wouldn't be comin' back
    Remember that but I never agreed

    I hate to say it but I told you so
    Told you if you left that you were goin' be miserable
    Guess he don't do it like me
    Or else you wouldn't be
    Runnin' back to the past it was you that left me
    I hate to say it but you know I'm right
    Every time you're up you're callin' for me late at night
    But now that you ain't got me tell me where you goin' be
    Cause I can't take you back no my heart wont let me

    Girl you know he can't touch like I do
    I don't see you trippin' or flippin' over his moves
    Don't take a genius to see he ain't that dude
    But you let him back you don't know what you was on
    When you said said he was the one
    Baby yes you said said you were in love
    When you left me you said that you wouldn't be
    Comin' back remember that but I never agreed

    I hate to say it but I told you so
    Told you if you left that you were goin' be miserable
    Guess he don't do it like me
    Or else you wouldn't be
    Runnin' back to the past it was you that left me
    I hate to say it but you know I'm right
    Every time you're up you're callin' for me late at night
    But now that you ain't got me tell me where you goin' be
    Cause I can't take you back no my heart wont let me

    You fell on hard times it seems but you ain't getting no sympathy
    No baby not from me cause I told you you should never leave
    See you chose this road so you gotta go it alone
    Remember I told you so

    I hate to say it but I told you so
    Told you if you left that you were goin' be miserable
    Guess he don't do it like me
    Or else you wouldn't be
    Runnin' back to the past it was you that left me
    I hate to say it but you know I'm right
    Every time you're up you're callin' for me late at night
    But now that you ain't got me tell me where you goin' be
    Cause I can't take you back no my heart wont let me
