[Part 1]
These days, you barely even say my name,
Like you don't really feel the same,
I'm wondering what's to blame.

These nights, I fall asleep wondering where you are,
It feels like we're falling apart,
And it's only breaking my heart.

Cause if being with you means being alone,
And never knowing when you're coming home,
Then I guess I'm better off on my own.

[Chorus:]
But I can't move on,
Cause that means forgetting, forgetting everything we had,
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running back.
Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting you treat me so bad,
So I keep on coming, keep coming, I keep coming back.
I keep coming back
I keep running back (x 2)
I keep coming back
I keep running back (x 2)
I keep coming, I keep coming back.

[Part 2]
My friends say, that I should leave you behind,
And stop wasting all of my time,
They tell me that I'm outta my mind.

But I know that what we both share is real,
And I've been willing to deal,
With the way that you're making me feel.

Cause if being with you means being alone,
And never knowing when you're coming home,
Then I guess I'm better off on my own.

[Chorus:]
But I can't move on,
Cause that means me forgetting, forgetting everything we had,
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running back.
Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting you treat me so bad,
So I keep on coming, keep coming, I keep coming back.
I keep coming back,
I keep running back (x 2),
I keep coming back,
I keep running back (x 2),
I keep coming, I keep coming back.

[Rap]
Ma-ma-ma-mama caught up,
We done all heard the same story,
Just different authors,
This book crazy.

Always a lady,
Looking for love where there's a maybe,
They might could be together,
They fight to be together,
A'ight to be together.

Shorty, yeah he cheated,
You say you don't need it,
Turn around and leave it,
Oh, he back next week.

Fuss... Fight,
And then the whole thing repeat like nothing ever happened,
Dat was just rapping,
No publishing,
Shorty you knew that he don't got the same government.

Lil mama can't move on,
But it's her fault she struggling,
She can't... Move... On.

[Chorus:]
But I can't move on,
Cause that means forgetting, forgetting everything we had,
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep coming back.
I keep coming back,
Keep running back,
And I keep coming back,
I keep running back,
I keep coming back,
I keep running back,
I keep running, keep running back.
I can keep coming back,
I can keep coming back,
I can keep running back,
I can keep coming back,
I can keep running back...
To you.

    To me it means, she is inlove with him, she is making her feel bad, she knows she needs to move on bad she can't forget all the things theywent trough together all the memories.
    He is not spending time with her and she feels alone even tough she is with him, he is distance and that breaks her hearth. She doesn't care about what people say because she knows what they had was real but everything has changed and she wants to move on but she has the ilusion that if she give him a chance everything can go back to they way it used to be.

    The song to me means. What she feels for him no matter what he has done to her she still loves him. No matter how hard hes been on her or hwat he does when hes away she still longs for him, when it say "But I can't move on,.
    Cause that means forgetting, forgetting everything we've had, " she can't move on after all they have been through and she doesn't want what shes been through to go to waste so she is willing to hold on to her life basicly.
