“Leaving (Always On Time [Part II])”

(Bridge: Ashanti)
If you were me, what would you do?
Always a lie, and never the truth.
Now as for me, I’m moving on, but you’ll always be my baby.

(Chorus: Ashanti)
Baby, I just got to let you go for now,
Thought I could take it for a while, maybe you’ll make it back around.
Baby, I just got to live my life for now,
Can’t see me changing for a while, hope I could make it back around.

(Verse 1: Ashanti)
Anything that I want I can get it boy, you know you turn me on,
And on that’s why I switch my frame of mind of being there when you call,
I’m always on time.
I’m looking to spread my wings and party, from everything and for everybody,
I need my space, my time alone, it's like our hearts don’t match no more.
Still everything that you want you could get it boy, you know I still got love for you;
In court I plea the fifth, my baby.

(Chorus: Ashanti)
Baby, I just got to let you go for now,
Thought I could take it for a while, maybe you'll make it back around.
Baby, I just got to live my life for now,
Can't see me changing for a while, hope I could make it back around.

(Verse 2: Ashanti)
When you was cheating, you was probably thinking I won’t sense a thing,
But love got funny way of catching up to lies,
And your lies can’t look me straight in the eyes.
I’m not surprised that you would hurt me baby, but why me baby?
Just let me breathe and I’ll fly free babe.

(Bridge: Ashanti)
If you were me, what would you do?
Always a lie, and never the truth.
Now as for me, I’m moving on, but you’ll always be my baby.

(Chorus: Ashanti)
Baby, I just got to let you go for now,
Thought I could take it for a while, maybe you’ll make it back around.
Baby, I just got to live my life for now,
Can’t see me changing for a while, hope I could make it back around.

(Rap: Ja Rule: Verse 3)
Yo, yo…
Why in the world would you wanna leave me girl?
Is there something I did that you feel is better then what’s here at home?
And I know a bitch could do bad on her own.
You’re not alone. The way you hurt me baby,
Shit, why me baby?
I be in pain a little, but I know that love is real and as
Long as it lets you go, you feel the need to come back to me baby,
Who else would hold you and sex you crazy?
R.U.L.E come on back holla at me baby.

(Chorus: Ashanti)
Baby, I just got to let you go for now,
Thought I could take it for a while, maybe you‘ll make it back around.
Baby, I just got to live my life for now,
Can’t see me changing for a while, hope I could make it back around.

(Chorus: Ashanti)
Baby, I just got to let you go for now,
Thought I could take it for a while, maybe you‘ll make it back around.
Baby, I just got to live my life for now,
Can’t see me changing for a while, hope I could make it back around.

(Bridge: Ashanti)
If you were me, what would you do?
Always a lie, and never the truth.
Now as for me, I’m moving on, but you’ll always be my baby.
