Turn it up loud, hey man
You a little sucker for love, right?
Word up

I shoulda seen you was trouble right from the start
Taught me so many lessons how not to mess with broken hearts
So many questions, when this began we was the perfect match
Perhaps we had some problems but we workin' at it

And now the arguments are gettin' loud
I wanna stay but I can't help from walkin' out
Just throw it away, just take my hand and understand
If you could see, I never planned to be a man, it just wasn't me

But now I'm searchin' for commitment, in other arms
I wanna shelter you from harm, don't be alarmed
Your attitude was the cause, you got me stressin'
Soon as I open up the door with your jealous questions

Like where can I be you're killin' me with your jealousy
Now my ambition's to be free
I can't breathe, 'cause soon as I leave, it's like a trap
I hear you callin' me to come back, I'm a sucka for love

What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up
What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up

Just when I thought I broke away and I'm feelin' happy
You try to trap me say you pregnant and guess who the daddy
Don't wanna fall for it but in this case what could I do?
So now I'm back to makin' promises to you, tryin' to keep it true

What if I'm wrong, a trick to keep me holdin' on
Tryin' to be strong and in the process, keep you goin'
I'm 'bout to lose my composure, I'm gettin' close
To packin' up and leavin' notes and gettin' ghost

Tell me who knows a peaceful place where I can go
To clear my head I'm feelin' low, losin' control
My heart is sayin' leave, oh, what a tangle web we weave
When we conspire to conceive

And now you gettin' calls at the house, guess you cheatin'
That's all I need to hear cause I'm leavin', I'm out the do'
Never no more will you see me, this is the end
'Cause now I know you've been cheatin', I'm a sucka for love

What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up
What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up

Now he left you with scars, tears on your pillow and you still stay
As you sit and pray, hopin' the beatings'll go away
It wasn't always a hit and run relationship
It use to be love, happiness and companionship

Remember when I treated you good
I moved you up to hills, out the ills of the ghetto hood
Me and you a happy home, when it was on
I had a love to call my own

I shoulda seen you was trouble but I was lost, trapped in your eyes
Preoccupied with gettin' tossed, no need to lie
You had a man and I knew it, you told me
Don't worry 'bout it we can do it now I'm under pressure

Make a decision 'cause I'm waitin', when I'm alone
I'm on the phone havin' secret conversations, huh
I wanna take your misery, replace it with happiness
But I need your faith in me, I'm a sucka for love

What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up
What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up

What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up
What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up

What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up
What you won't do, do for love
You tried everything but you don't give up
