I can see it in your eyes: you're angry
Regret got s**t on what you're feeling now
Mad cause he ain't like me
O you mad cause nobody ever did it like me
All the care I would take, all the love that we made
Now you're trying to find somebody to replace what I gave to you
It's a shame you didn't keep it: Alicia, Katia
I know that you gon hear this: I'm the man
Yeah I said it! B***h I'm the man
Don't you forget it
The way you walk, that's me
The way you talk, that's me
The way you've got your hair up: did you forget that's me?
And the voice in the speaker right now: that's me, that's meeee
And the voice in your ear: that's me
Can't you see, that I made it? Yeah I made it
First I made you who you are, and then I made it
And you're wasted with your ladies
Yeah I'm the reason that why always getting faded

Take a shot for me(3x)
A shot for me (2x)

Ok look: I'm honest
Girl I can't lie: I miss you
You and the music were the only things that I commit to
I never cheated, for the record, back when I was with you
But you believe in everything but me, girl I don't get you
She says I know you changed, I never see you
Cause you're always busy doing things
I really wish she had a different way of viewing things
I think the city that we're from just kinda ruined things
It's such a small place: not much to do but talk and listen
The men are jealous and the women all in competition
And now your friends telling you stories that you often misinterpret
And taint all your images of yo "Mr. Perfect"
I could tell that you been crying all night, drinking all summer
Praying for your happiness, hope that you recover
This is one I know you hated when you heard it
And it's worse because you know that I deserve it...

Take a shot for me(3x)
A shot for me (2x)

May your neighbors respect you
Trouble neglect you, angels protect you
And heaven accept you...

    Soo theres this guy I like alot and when he sees me he always falls back in love with me. And I don't get to see him often and I have hurt him alot in the past years. And now I regret them. And he told my best friend that this song reminds him of me and makes him sad: . Is it a bad thing that this song reminds him of me?

    What he means by take a shot for me is exactly that. He says that shes always getting faded trying to 'forget' about everything they went through. Hes basically telling her to keep trying to forget about him. In the end I think the true meaning is hes still upset that she let him go so he keeps telling her to suffer and get wasted. He wants her to have to go through the process of getting drunk because he knows everytime she does its because shes trying to forget him.

    In this song the women broke up with him because she heard rumors obioulsy from some other jelous girls (as he says). She belied everyone but him, so she broke up with him. He was very commited to her, but he was also trying to make a music career. Now he's telling her look where I am now. ? If you would have believeed in me you could be here too. It's so sad to see that you couldn't hold on to a good man when you had one, you ill never find another man like me so stop looking, you let me go, I was good to you. He's telling her take a shot to what you have missed out on. It's the least you can do, I mean you didn't believe me && now you know that you were wrong. In the end he is telling her ya. I still love you && I miss you, but you had no faith in me && your still beliving the rumors so how do I know you have change? You know I have, but hw do I know you have changed. He tells her "just bcz i can't do this again dosen't mean i wish anything bad upo you. I hope you recover && liv your life. May angels protect you && all... "
