(mmmm)

Baby can you put them bags down
Just wait hold on for a minute
Gotta say a couple things before you go
Even though i know that were finished
I don't want you to leave without knowin
Just where im comin from babe
I just wanna say
I made a big mistake
And now i gotta face the fact that i

Shoulda been a better man
The kinda man that you needed
Woulda been better off
If I'd done right by you
I coulda done this
I coulda done that but
I know i can't go back
Cause now it's just too late
Im sayin
Shoulda woulda coulda yeah

I can tell by the look on your face
You aint tryin to hear what im sayin
Maybe you done heard all of this before
Girl this aint no game that im playin
This may be the last chance i ever have
To talk to you before you go
So i gotta say
I made a big mistake
Girl you know it's killin me that i
