But I was so blind, he was one of a kind
And If I let him go I don't know if he'll be gone forever

My sister told me, you ain't no fool girl
My brother told me, take charge and rule girl
But did I listen?

And if I let him go, I don't know if he'll be gone forever

Track Name: Don't Talk Back
Don't talk back when I said you should be leaving
I said don't talk back when I said that you should go
Yeah don't talk back now baby, walk through that door.

Don't talk back when you know you should be quiet
I said don't talk back when you know that you were wrong
Yeah don't talk back now baby you can't hurt me no more.

When I left you in the middle of the night/ girl I heard he wasn't doin something right
A good man would open up his mind/ to a girl that has some pride
Shut your mouth!


Well I know that this game is over/ girl you gotta get a little closer
Looking backi should've always known/ that that little boy will never be grown
Shut your mouth!

I drink red wine every day of the week
I drink red wine until I can sleep
But when I come home when I come home all my man wants to do is just sleep

You pushed me to the bottle and to another man
The way you've been acting baby the way you've been acting,
It just proves that you never, you didn't, you couldn't even give a damn
I'm tired and I'm weak
You're lazy and youre weak boy
And I've I've made other plans.
