[Verse 1:]
The truth about it baby
If it were me, I woulda done the same thang
If it was me, that caught you cheatin' in the streets
If it was me, that caught you creepin' two or three times, I'd cry
The truth about it baby
You's the sweetest, the sweetest lil' girl, but
I've messed up, in this fake ass crazy world, and
Here's another song 'bout tryna get your girl back
Oooh

[Pre-Chorus:]
Kissing you (Oh)
Kissing you (Love kissing you)
Loved the way our lips used to meet
I've destroyed everything
I can hear what they say
And I know the

[Chorus:]
The whole town's laughin' at me
How'd the hell I mess up such a good thang
She was your woman (Yes she was your woman)
Should never turn your back on your woman
They said come back around
Then the whole town laughin' at me (Whole town, no no)
How'd the hell I mess up such a good thang (Oh)
Baby, I'm sorry (Baby, I'm sorry)
I hope it's not too late to say I'm sorry (I hope it's not too late)
The whole town laughin' at me, me me

[Verse 2:]
The thing that drives me crazy
If it was me, woulda gave you understanding
Woulda gave you like, two or three more chances
Cause it's hard to find
Similar romance like we have
Thoughts of you, they chase me
I can't go to bed, I see you in my dream
My nightmare seems like I keep falling (Falling)
Falling...nobody to catch me

[Pre-Chorus:]
Kissing you (Oh)
Kissing you
If I had it, to do over again
I'd treat you like a friend
That way, we'd have a bond that we can't break

[Chorus:]
The whole town's laughin' at me (Oh)
How'd the hell I mess up such a good thang (Such a good thing, yeah)
She was your woman (My woman)
You never turn your back on your woman (Never turn my back on my)
They said come back around
Then the whole town laughin' at me(Oh)
How'd the hell I mess up such a good thang (Such a good thing)
Baby, I'm sorry
I hope it's not too late to say I'm sorry (I'm sorry baby, yes I am)
The whole town laughin' at me, me me

[Bridge:]
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha... (Oooh)
That's the sound that I hear-er-er-er (Oooh)
I should've kept you right here
Should've kept you right here-er-er-er (Oh yeah)
Should've put you down, busy runnin' around
And I hate to be the laugh of the party, oh no no
Drowning sorrows in this crowd
(Sorrows in this crowd)
Crying tears of a clown-own-own
(Crying tears of a clown)
You know I hear them laughin' at me

[Chorus:]
The whole town's laughin' at me
How'd the hell I mess up such a good thing
She was your woman (Oh she used to be my)
Never turn your back on your woman (I gave her loving all the time)
They said come back around (Feels like I'm breaking down down down)
Then the whole town laughin' at me (I'm breaking down down down)
How'd the hell I mess up such a good thang (I'm breaking down down down)
Baby, I'm sorry
I hope it's not too late to say I'm sorry (Oh)
The whole town laughin' at me, me me
