Keith Sweat – Knew It All Along lyrics

I've always wanted to say it
'Cause I've always felt it in my heart
I just didn't want to mess up our friendship

We've known each other since we were young, so young
That's why you feel you can talk to me
You and me you know we're just like family, girl
And you've been telling me for so long, long
About what's been going on with your man
How he talks to you, how he treats you, raises his hand, oh no
See I knew back then, that man of yours
He was no damn good
But I left it then, didn't wanna get in between it all along

When it's five o'clock in the morning
You wake up and he still ain't made it home
Just remember every word I told you
When I said I knew this all along,
I'm not trying to be nobody's home wrecker
I'm just trying to tell you as a friend
So what you really don't know in the end
Is that, I love you

And I hope this doesn't change our relationship baby
'Cause it ain't worth losing a life long friend
I thought about it but I just couldn't hold it in
And I know this is a lot to take in right now, oh yeah
It's just the way he's been treating you
I can't take it no more
I knew back then, that man of yours
He was no damn good no
But I left it then, didn't wanna get in between it

Baby hope you open your eyes to see
Treat on me for you baby
And I'Ђ™m never let you hurt you again
You gotta end it baby
