  • I know I vowed to never do this again but, uh
    I guess this seems to be the only thin' I'm good at

    Got somethin' that you need to know
    Be the realest shit I never wrote
    Can't hold it, gotta let it go
    Know that I mean every note

    Yeah, yeah
    Listen, baby

    Let me start by sayin' that
    The way I feel for you has never once changed
    And the games that I've played, mistakes I made
    Leave me sorrier than you'll ever know

    We got a problem, baby, I can't lie
    'Cause lately I realize that I
    Never knew that we was on the same (playin' field)
    Knew that it was wrong but we (let it be)
    And I know you never knew when you said I do
    That you would have to face all the (pain you feel)

    And its killin' me, girl
    That you have to live with this
    Live with the lies I tell
    Live with the pain you feel
    Knowin' the man you love is foolin' around

    Oh baby, said it's killin' me, girl
    Said I just don't understand
    Why you wanna be with this kinda man, oh ho
    Why would you love a fool with all the things I do?
    I know it's hard for you
    Hard for you to live with this

    Trade memories from moments
    Treat love to be lonely
    Guess that's just the man in me
    Blame it on celebrity
    When the nighttime feel like the right time
    And that spotlight feel like the white light
    But it's really just my fears
    And still don't dry your tears
    When I say she ain't you, and I really love you more
    When you say, "If it's true
    Why do you do it for", and I
    I really don't have no excuse
    I break your heart, make you cry
    I just wanna say goodbye

    It's killin' me, girl, that you have to live with these (ooh)
    Live with the lies I tell
    Live with the pain you feel
    Knowin' the man you love (man you love) is foolin' around (foolin' around)
    Oh baby, said it's killin' me, girl
    Said I just don't understand (just don't understand, why you wanna be with this kinda man)
    Why you wanna be with this kinda man, oh ho
    Why would you love a fool with all the things I do?
    I know it's hard for you
    Hard for you to live with this

    What I feel, I don't even gotta right it
    It's like poisons in my body
    And there's no way to deny
    That my heart is a time bomb
    With seconds left to explode (explode)
    But I gotta let you know before it blows

    That it ain't on you
    It's my fault
    All the gossip and talkin'
    Behind your back when you walkin'
    By the time you will know
    Before long you will see, that you deserve more
    You deserve more
    You deserve so much more
    Than what I'll ever be

    And its killin' me girl that you have to live with this
    Live with the lies I tell (oh, oh, oh)
    Live with the pain you feel
    Knowin' the man you love (you love) is foolin' around ('round, ooh yeah)
    Oh baby, said it's killin' me girl
    Said I just don't understand
    Why you wanna be with this kinda man, oh ho (ooh)
    Why would you love a fool with all the things I do?
    I know it's hard for you
    Hard for you to live with this
    Live with this
    Can you live with this, girl?

    I just want you know
    Got somethin' that you need to know
    This be the realest shit I never wrote
    Can't hold it, gotta let it go
    Know that I mean every note, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, hmm Writer/s: Bryan Michael Cox, Jermaine Dupri, Johnta Austin, Usher Raymond
