Lookin' at you now I can tell
That you and your new relationship ain't going well
There's no reason your name should come up on my cell
Unless you're unhappy
But that shouldn't be the case cos you said (said)
Said he was the one (one)
Baby yes you said, said you were in love
Cos when you left me
You said you that wouldn't be coming back
Remember that?
But I never agreed

I hate to say it but I told you so
Told you if you left that you were gon' be miserable
Guess he don't do it like me
Or else you wouldn't be
Running back to the past
It was you that left me

I hate to say it but you know I'm right
Every time you're up and calling for me late at night
Well now that you ain't got me
Tell me where you gon' be
Cos I can't take you back
No my heart won't let me

Girl you know he can't touch like I do
I don't see you trippin' or flippin' over his moves
Don't take a genius to see he ain't that good
But you let him back
You don't know what you was on

When you said
Said he was the one
Baby yes you said, said you were in love
Cos when you left me
You said that you wouldn't be coming back
Remember that?
But I never agreed

I hate to say it but I told you so
Told you if you left that you were gon' be miserable
Guess he don't do it like me
Or else you wouldn't be
Running back to the past
It was you that left me

I hate to say it but you know I'm right
Every time you're up and calling for me late at night
Well now that you ain't got me
Tell me where you gon' be
Cos I can't take you back
No my heart won't let me

You fall on hard times it seems
But you ain't getting no sympathy
Not baby not from me
Cos I told you, you should never leave
See you chose this road
So you gotta go it alone
Remember I told you so

Oh, oh, oh

I hate to say but I told you so
Told you if you left that you were gon' be miserable (gon' be miserable)
Guess he don't do it like me (oh)
Or else you wouldn't be (oh)
Running back to the past (yeah)
It was you that left me

I hate to say but you know I'm right (you know I'm right)
Every time your up and calling for me late at night
Well now that you ain't got me
Tell me where you gon' be (oh)
Cos I can't take you back
No my heart won't let me (I can't take you back)

Oooh

Oh, Oh, Oh

    oh my, it is really a sad song.
    Both the boy and the girl are hurt badly
    The girl must feel extremely regret that she left the boy,
    and she can't go back to him now.
    But in my opinion, if the boy still have the feeling to the girl,
    he should forgive her, otherwise, they will end up losing the one they love.

    I really love this song and of course JMac...
    The girl left the man and in the end she was hurt...and now the man is moving on..
    at first the man was hurt
    but later the girl was also hurt...

    This song is one of the best songs i've heard before.
    To me, this song is about a girl who left her boyfriend for another guy, and she claims she's in love with the other guy, but then, she crawls back to her ex, saying she's made a mistake and her ex won't take her back, cause what she did pretty messed.
