Damage...
Ahh...
You know
Sometimes you don't realize what you've done,
Until you've seen the damage...
And I looked at the damage...

Yea... Whoa... yea... yea... Whoa... yea... Look at the damage...

[Verse 1:]

3am when my phone ring,
Beggin' me to come by,
I was right around the corner...
I know I coulda' said no
But I ain't stop,
Told me come in "the doors unlocked for ya"...
My intuition I should,
Have listened to it,
My girl,
Yo she'd be pissed if she knew,
About this visit...
She had a tank top on,
I took her tank top off,
I should've stopped,
STOP!... [sigh]
But she ain't lettin' me,
Kissed me soft and gently...
She tempt me.
Right then I stopped thinkin'
Consequences... (consequences)
Guess I must have lost my mind for a minute.

[Chorus]

'Cause there's no better love...
Girl I love you...
With her that was lust...
Shouldn't of happened I
Know I messed up...
One phone call started
This whole thing now...
Look at the damage... (the damage)
Look at the damage... (the damage)
(Look)
Damage...
Damage that I caused you.
I know I broke your heart,
Cuz' I did you wrong now.
Look at the damage, (the damage)
Look at the damage that I caused...

[Verse 2:]

The dumbest decision that I made
That I ain't proud of,
A few hours that meant absolutely nothing
Cost me your love...
I gotta live with regret,
Deserve to get what you give,
Now you won't listen to nothing that I'm saying. (Woah)
I rode passed your house for hours,
Just to feel close to ya...
No cards, no gifts, no flowers,
Could get me back with chu'...
Your kiss, your touch, girl you know I miss it.
But you got my heart inside of a prisonless cell

[Chorus]
'Cause there's no better love...
Girl I love you...
With her that was lust... ooooh (yeah)
Shouldn't of happened I know I messed up... (yeah)
One phone call started, this whole thing now... (hey)
Look at the damage (the damage)
(I've seen the damage that I caused you girl)
Look at the damage (the damage)
(Look)
Damage...
Damage that I caused you...
(I know that I broke your heart)
I know I broke your heart,
'Cause I did you wrong now...
Look at the damage... (the damage)
Look at the damage that I caused...
[Bridge:]

I was trippin'(ooh), I was dippin' (ooh), with these women (ooh), in these streets (ooh). Lost my girl (ooh), lost all
That (yeah). Wish I could (ooh), take it back.

I was trippin'(Hey), I was dippin' (Ooh), with these women (Oh), in these streets (Yeeah). Wish I could (Oooh), take that
Back... Ooh baby...

[Chorus]
(One phone call started this whole thing now)
(The damage that I...)
(Oh)
(Yeeeah)
Yea... woah...
Look at the damage...
Look at the damage...
Yeeah
You know...
Sometimes you don't realize what you've done...
Until you've seen the damage...
And I looked at the damage...'

    But, I think the song means that he was cheating on his girl and when she caught him, he really found out how much he wanted her and now wants her back after she's left...

    The meaning of song to me is that, he recognizes his weakness and is truly sorry for what he did to the love of his life. He is pouring his heart out to her, in hope that maybe she would forgive him. He knows it's over, but everyone wants forgiveness!!!
