This Time

Album: The MF Life (2012)
  • If only you knew all the love I had inside
    If only I told you
    That you were my greatest pride
    If only I showed you just how good you made me feel
    Maybe I wouldn't be alone and you would be right here but
    I don't wanna do it over
    The first time has gone away
    You can't rewrite the past
    All I can do is say

    This time, I'll do it much better
    Love you like I never
    Ever loved you before
    Oh baby, now this time
    I'll give you my heart and soul
    And every drop of my love
    If you say yes I'll give you my best
    This time

    This time, I'm gonna be stronger
    This time I'll do it all the way
    This time I'll be a better woman
    This time I won't get in my own way
    I could go back you never would have gone
    If I knew then what I know now
    I've told you all that I feel for you in my heart
    In my head I know what I should've said
    I know what I shoulda did
    But I don't wanna do it over
    The first time is gone away
    You can't rewrite the past
    All I can do is say

    This time, I'll do it much better
    Love you like I never
    Ever loved you before
    Oh baby, now this time
    I'll give you my heart and soul
    And every drop of my love
    If you say yes I'll give you my best
    This time

    If looks kill then Melanie you a felony
    We both hot I guess we couldn't take the jealousy
    All in my ear I had my homeboys telling me
    How to be a player, we fell off like Bill Bellamy
    MTV shhh, we used to watch Law and Order, NBC shh
    But now I'm watching solo on some empty seat shit
    Thinking of you, I got a lot more drinking to do
    Reminiscing, though I seen it coming
    Yeah I had a premonition
    Right beside each other and somehow it felt distant
    Lets rewind back when days sunny like Liston
    Smile just glisten, your booty like a cushion
    Is this the moment where we making up
    And realise we tripping forever breaking up
    And then I break you off, put you to sleep know its deep
    When the girl of his dreams is the same one to wake him up

    This time, I'll do it much better
    Love you like I never
    Ever loved you before
    Oh baby, now this time
    I'll give you my heart and soul
    And every drop of my love
    If you say yes I'll give you my best
