You're everything I thought you never were
Ain't nothing like a thought could have been
Still, you live inside of me
So tell me how is that

You're the only one I wish I could forget
The only one I love to not forgive
And though you break my heart
You're the only one

And though there are times when I hate you
'Cause I can't erase
The times that you hurt me
And put tears on my face
And even now while I hate you
It pains me to say
I know I'll be there
At the end of the day

I don't wanna be without you babe
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without you babe
I don't wanna play that part
I know that I love you
But let me just say
I don't wanna love you
In no kind of way, no no
I don't want a broken heart
I don't wanna play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Something that I feel I need to say
But untill now I've always been afraid
That you would never come around
And still I wanna put this out

You say you got the most respect for me but
Sometimes I feel you're not deserved of me
And still you're in my heart
But you're the only one

And yes, there are times when I hate you
But I don't complain
'Cause I've been afraid that
You would walk away

Oh but now I don't hate you
I'm happy to say
That I will be there
At the end of the day

I don't wanna be without you babe
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without you babe
I don't wanna play that part
I know that I love you
But let me just say
I don't wanna love you
In no kind of way, no no
I don't want a broken heart
I don't wanna play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Now I met a place I thought I'd never be, oh
I'm living in a world whereas all about you and me, yeah
And I won't be afraid, my broken heart as free
To spread my wings and fly away, away with you

I don't wanna be without my baby
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without my babe
Don't wanna take a breath without my babe

    I think that she does not wanna play the prt of getting hurt bi A boi that she loves and she jus telling him how she feels and he should not runn ova her like that and if he does that means that they are done. And she wanna B with him 4EVA but if he act ^ it is dun?!?!?!?!?
    Oh message to beyonce I hated ya cd nuthing but A few of ya songs were good yu don't you jus let someone else be the star like jennifer hudson or some thing I mean you can sang but she sounds way betta than you do and you getting kind off old and played out!

    I think that in any of our lives we must make sure we are doing what is best for the relationship! A relationship take 2 people, and though we may do things that each other don't like! Everyone is who they are there is not a person in the world that is proceved diffently! So to say that he was what I thought he would never be, make sure that it isn't you!

    This song means a lot to me as I have been going through a rough patch with my boyfriend and this song just changed the way things are. Once I played it to my boy he understood me more. Beyonce has got to be my idol as all of her songs mean something to me. I started of as someone who didn't have a clue on what she wanted in life but now it has come to the point where I know I wanna be with my lad and I love him with all of my heart and that cause og this song.
