(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
I know he's leaving me for you
(DEBORAH COX)
Who said that, who told that is true
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
What is he telling you?
Could it be the same things that he told me

(DEBORAH COX)
He told me that he loved me
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
I heard that
(DEBORAH COX)
He told me I was beautiful
How did you know, how did you know
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
Cause I played that scene before

CHORUS: (WHITNEY HOUSTON)
This is a retake of my life
I was his star for many nights
Now the roles have changed
And you're the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera, now you're on
Just remeber you've been warned
Enjoy it now, cause it won't last
Same script, different cast

(DEBORAH COX)
What you're saying could be true
But how can I take advice from you
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
I'm not hating
But I wish the one before me
Would have warned me too babe
(DEBORAH COX)
Don't say no more (lalala)
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
Uncover your ears girl
(DEBORAH COX)
I'm not listening (lalala)
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
But I know you hear me
Maybe my reasons are wrong
But I know that you believe me

CHORUS: (WHITNEY HOUSTON)

(DEBORAH COX)
It's your fault you didn't love him enough
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
That's the problem
I loved him too much
And when you love him
He becomes unattracted to you
(DEBORAH COX)
Oh no, He's changed and I'll prove you wrong
So go away, leave us the hell alone
He loves me
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
He'll hurt you
(DEBORAH COX)
He'll stay with me
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
He'll leave you
(BOTH)
For sure, for sure

CHORUS: (WHITNEY HOUSTON)

(DEBORAH COX)
This is a retake of your life
You were his star for many nights
But now the roles have changed
I'm the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera now you're on
Just remeber you've been warned
Enjoy it now, cause this will last
I'm his future, you're his past

(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
This is a retake of my life
(DEBORAH COX)
Of your life
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
I was his star for many nights
And now you're the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera now you're on
Just remeber you've been warned
Enjoy it now
(DEBORAH COX)
Just watch us now
(WHITNEY HOUSTON)
Cause it won't last
(DEBORAH COX)
I know it will last
(BOTH)
Same script, different cast

    I think it's about a woman who's friend got her dog of a man and she is trying to give her a fair warning about him and that friend doesn't want or listen. But in reality she's believes her deep down.
