I wanna have my life in control
I don't wanna see you walkin' out the door
I promise I'll get myself back in order
Please stay I'm beggin' you don't leave me here alone
because I need you to help me take care of my needs
I love you my sweet baby
I'm beggin' you please stay with me

I see you staring out the window
Tears runnin' down your cheeks
I tried to tell you that they'd rip you apart
But you did not believe me
You said no, they love me I know it
And I know that you love me too
So why are we so out of order
I need myself out of here

I hate how this relationship is going
I need some help so do you
Don't tell me I'm crazy, weird, out of control
Because I'd do anything for you

The love in our hearts is starting to fade away
You still told me you loved me
So why didn't you stay
You told me you hate me

You told me I was cruel
You don't understand how it feels to try to love you
When I know that you will not love me too

I've givin you everything you could ever need
But you still do not at all seem pleased
What more can I do for you to win back your love
I need you baby
Can't you see that I'm crying for you
But you don't care because you're gonna leave me too

I wanna have my life in control
I don't wanna see you walkin' out the door
I promise I'll get myself back in order
Please stay I'm beggin' you don't leave me here alone
because I need you to help me take care of my needs
I love you my sweet baby
I'm beggin' you please stay with me

Please take me back honey
Give me just one more chance
If I screw up this time
Them we know that this isn't romance
I would see the light
But my life so dark
I'm tryin' tryin' tryin' with all my might
I need some help baby
Can you hold my hand through the night

You link me to freedom
You give me my body and soul
You are the only one that can get me back in control
Sweet baby baby
I need to ask you on little thing
Will you stay with me
Can we get back into the swing of things

I wanna have my life in control
I don't wanna see you walkin' out the door
I promise I'll get myself back in order
Please stay I'm beggin' you don't leave me here alone
because I need you to help me take care of my needs
I love you my sweet baby
I'm beggin' you please stay with me

Please, please, please
