Tell me what to do, oohh, about you
I already know, I can see it in your eyes when you telling the truth
Cause it's been a long time comin'
So where you runin to?
Tell me what to do, oohh, about you

You've got your way of speaking
Even the air you're breathin'
You could be anything
But you don't know what to believe in
You got the world before you
If I could only show you
That you don't know what to do

Tell me what to do, oohh, about you
Somethin' on your mind, baby all of the time, you can bring out a room
This day has been a long time comin'
I say it's nothing new
So tell me what to do, ooh, about you

You've got your way of speaking
Even the air you're breathin'
You could be anything
But you don't know what to believe in
You got the world before you
If I could only show you
That you don't know what to do

You think about it
Can you ever change, finish what you've started
Make me wanna stay, tired of conversation
Show me something real, find out what your part is
Play it how you feel

Tell me what to do, ooh, about you
Is there any way, anything I can say, won't break us in two
Cause it's been a long time comin'
I can't stop lovin' you, yeah
Tell me what to do, ooh, about you

You've got your way of speaking
Even the air you're breathin'
You could be anything
But you don't know what to believe in
You got the world before you
If I could only show you
That you don't know what to do

(You've got your way of speaking)
(Even the air you're breathin')
You could be anything
But you don't know what to believe in
(You got the world before you) World before you
(If I could only show you) Show you
That you don't know what to do

    They were a couple and now it's over, but he has still a place in her heart. She loves him and maybe she wants him back.

    A girl and a guy who is in love with each other. Even how hard the girl tries to save their relationship, the guy keeps on clinging on to his ego and his fame. They love each other but the girl is the only one fighting for their relationship. The girl is tired by his games
