  • Lyrics
  • Oh
    Put your loving hand out, baby
    I'm beggin'

    Beggin', beggin' you
    Put your loving hand out baby
    Beggin', beggin' you
    Put your loving hand out darling

    Riding high, when I was king
    Played it hard and fast, cause I had everything
    Walked away, won me then
    But easy come and easy go
    And it would end

    So why anytime I bleed, you let me go
    Anytime I feed you get me know
    Anytime I see you let me know
    But, I plan and see just let me go

    I`m on my knees when I'm (beggin'g)
    Cause I don't want to lose (you)
    I got my arms on spread
    And I hope that my heart gets fed, matter of fact girl I'm beggin'


    I need you, (yeah) to understand
    Tried so hard
    To be your man
    The kind of man you want in the end
    Only then can I begin to live again

    An empty shell
    I used to be
    Shadow of my life
    Was hangin' over me

    A broken man
    That I don't know
    Won't even stand the devils dance
    To win my soul

    Why we chewing, why we chasing
    Why the bottom, why the basement
    Why we got good shit don't embrace it
    Why the feel for the need to replace me
    Your the wrong way track from the good
    I want to paint in a picture telling where we could be at
    Like a heart in the best way should
    You can give it the away, you had it and you took the pay
    But I keep walking on, keep opening doors
    Keep hoping for that the door is yours
    Keep also home, cause I don't want to live in a broken home, girl I am beggin'


    I'm fighting hard
    To hold my own
    Just can't make it
    All alone (all alone)

    I'm holding on
    I can't fall back
    I'm just a calm
    'Bout to fade to black

    And I can't come home
    You call and I can't come home
    You call you can't come home
    You call and I can't come home
    You call [Echoes out]
