  • It's like whatever I do
    Oh
    Just can't get through to you
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    I'm never gonna tell you nothin' more
    Listen

    Now, now she loved me, shawty I loved her
    Used to jump up in the Maybach and roll out
    Used to care, she used to share
    The love that she used to give me can't be found
    I lost my way, she said she'd stay
    And lately I've been sleeping with a ghost
    My stock is down and out, I used to be worth my weight in gold
    That was before a great depression kicked in and rocked us
    And that was before the hurricane came, came in and stopped us
    I told you to leave, but you lied to me
    When you said that, "baby no worries I promise to get us back".

    I know sorries, just wouldn't do it
    Her heart is obliterated, I'm trying to travel through
    But it's like moving mountains
    It's like moving mountains Hey
    But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
    And the sky turns gray, and the water from the rain washes progress away
    It's like moving mountains (moving mountains)
    It's like moving mountains (moving mountains)
    Why just leave me?
    Just leave me be
    Just leave me
    Just leave me be
    Why you just leave me
    Just leave me be
    Why you just leave me
    Just leave me be, oh

    She, she don't touch me, I don't touch her
    We rarely even ever say a word
    I really want to give her everything she deserves
    But the bad took away the good
    She thinks that I'm full of it, arguments, always pissed, man I'm tired
    Every kiss that I miss, girl you know I'm trying
    You never believe when I say, and I never believe it when you say
    I love you, and I shouldn't complain about it
    I should take it like a man and walk up out it
    Cause we will never be the same, oh
    I've been standing in gas, and you have been the flame

    I know sorries just wouldn't do it
    Her heart is obliterated, I'm trying to get through
    Got to move this mountain
    It's like moving mountains Hey
    But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
    And the sky turns gray, and the water from the rain washes progress away
    It's like moving mountains (moving)
    It's like moving mountains (moving)
    Well baby why you just leave me?
    Just leave me be
    Just leave me
    Just leave me be
    Why you just leave me
    Just leave me be
    Why you just leave me
    Just leave me be, oh

    This must be a slow death that I'm travelin' on
    It feels so wrong, I'm barely holdin' on

    See no matter what it takes, I've gotta get it together (baby yea)

    And these hills that I'm travelin' up
    She ain't showin' me love
    I'm down on my love

    I know sorries just wouldn't do it
    Her heart is obliterated, I'm trying, I'm trying my boo
    But it's like moving mountains
    It's like moving mountains Hey
    But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
    And the sky turns gray, and the water from the rain washes progress away
    It's like moving mountains
    It's like moving mountains
    Well baby why you just leave me?
    Just leave me be
    Just leave me
    Just leave me be
    Why you just leave me
    Just leave me be
    Why you just leave me
    Just leave me be, oh Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER A. STEWART, THADDIS LAPHONIA HARRELL, TERIUS YOUNGDELL NASH

  • Faye from Chicago, IlThis song makes me cry.. there is so much emotion behind it, it is hard to take it all in! In the music video, I can feel the pain in his voice. I think Usher has really progressed as a male in the entertainment industry and he is not singing about the things that he used to when he was younger...he's grown up. I hope it hits the top of the charts but that people see what this song is really about.
