Deborah Cox – Like I Did lyrics

{Deborah Cox, y'all}
{Dark Child}

Oh, you think you found somebody that could treat you
(Like I did)
Spend the time doin' for you (Like I did)
And be there when you say, "I need you" (Like I did)
Now this I can't believe

Now do you really think she'll hold it down for you
(Like I did)
Take all this foolishness from you (Like I did)
See, if she doesn't she will leave you (Like I did)
But don't come runnin' to me

Could have been you and me
But everything I feel is (Gone)
You had a good thing in me, now it's (Gone)
The love I had for you is suddenly (Gone)
Go away from me

It could have been you and me
For actin' like my heart is (Gone)
And feel like a part of me is missin', it's (Gone)
I didn't want to leave but I had to get (Gone)
'Cause he hurt me and now I don't

I don't need nobody
Who can't do right by me
I don't need you, baby
'Cause I'm worth much more you'll see

So just go 'cause I know
You cannot be faithful
Don't believe she's like me
Just do your thing

Never realize I really had a good thing (Like you did)
Then you'll realize you dogged me (Like you did)
But she never thought of cheating (Like you did)
Maybe then you'll see

It wasn't cool breakin' promises to me (Like you did)
Had no reason to deny me (Like you did)
How you claim you still act to me (Like you did)
And now it's easy to leave

Could have been you and me
But everything I feel is (Gone)
You had a good thing in me, now it's (Gone)
The love I had for you is suddenly (Gone)
Go away from me

It could have been you and me
For actin' like my heart is (Gone)
And feel like a part of me is missin', it's (Gone)
I didn't want to leave but I had to get (Gone)
'Cause you hurt me and I don't need

I don't need nobody
Who can't do right by me
I don't need you, baby
'Cause I'm worth much more you'll see

So just go 'cause I know
You cannot be faithful
Don't believe she's like me
Just do your thing

I know what you need
Don't care what you say
Gotta get away
I won't be second to no one

I can't live
With this choice I've made
Don't look back, no way
I can make it on my own without you

I don't need nobody
Who can't do right by me
I don't need you, baby
'Cause I'm worth much more you'll see

So just go 'cause I know
You cannot be faithful
Don't believe she's like me
Just do your thing

I don't need nobody
Who can't do right by me
I don't need you, baby
'Cause I'm worth much more you'll see

So just go 'cause I know
You cannot be faithful
Don't believe she's like me
Just do your thing

Could have been you and me
But everything I feel is (Gone)
You had a good thing in me, now it's (Gone)
The love I had for you is suddenly (Gone)
Go away from me

It could have been you and me
For actin' like my heart is (Gone)
A part of me is missin', it's (Gone)
I didn't want to leave but I had to get (Gone)
Just do your thing
