(Featuring Akon)

I let you talk and eventhough you over-react.
I try to listen, didn't give you any feedback.
Everytime I tell you what I need, you don't care how much I bleed.
Am I coming through, check, 1 2, 1 2.
Down to the wire, you're over looking the red lights (Lights)
And every little issue is amplified.
Am I unheard, went back like reverb.
Coming from my tears, over you, 1 2, 1 2.

Turn it up one notch (One notch) Hit the plugs.
Better listen up, better listen up.
Cause it's over I had enough, I'm tired of keeping it down.
Not gonna bottle it up, you're 'bout to hear me out (Ohh)

Mic check c'mon, mic check 1 2 c'mon.
Turn right around, I'm 'bout to bounce.
Baby I'm out, can you hear my now.
Mic check c'mon, mic check 1 2 c'mon.
Turn that around, I'm 'bout to bounce.
Baby I'm out, can you hear my now.

You cut me up I was scarred, I'm not gonna run it back.
You told me I had given you static and I mean that.
And after that I gave you clues, now I'm blowing a fuse.
Am I getting through, mic check 1 2, 1 2.
Sike, read my facial expressions see how I'm pulling back (Pulling back)
You say I'm tripping betchu like me to believe that.
I'm standing my ground.
Yep, stubborn and I'm proud.
Am I getting through, check 1 2, 1 2.

Turn it up one notch (One notch) Hit the plugs.
Better listen up, better listen up.
Cause it's over ahead and I'm tired of keeping it down.
Not gonna bottle it up, you're 'bout to hear me out(Ohh)

Mic check c'mon, mic check 1 2 c'mon.
Turn right around, I'm 'bout to bounce.
Baby I'm out, can you hear my now.
Mic check c'mon, mic check 1 2 c'mon.
Turn that around, I'm 'bout to bounce.
Baby I'm out, can you hear my now.

(Akon):
You said I switched that up, I stick it to the game plan.
Now you're talking down on me like I'm rain man.
Feel like I'm acting a fool, I'm tryna keep it cool.
Whatchu expect me to do? Check 1 2, 1 2.
I let your speakers bump, turn up the volume.
I heard you loud and clear, babygirl it's all you.
So if you wanna leave, baby there's the door.
I aint gonna hold you here if you really wanna go.
I'ma leave that whip, kick rocks, take the bus.
Better hurry up, better hurry up.
So if you need your space, baby that's what's up.
I'ma need my place, baby get your stuff.

(X2)
Mic check c'mon, mic check 1 2 c'mon.
Turn right around, I'm 'bout to bounce.
Baby I'm out, can you hear my now.
Mic check c'mon, mic check 1 2 c'mon.
Turn that around, I'm 'bout to bounce.
Baby I'm out, can you hear my now.
