There's a first time for everything
It's definitely one of them nights
I knew when I looked in his eyes
That he was gonna be trouble for me
I never wanted to lie
I knew that my baby would cry
If he knew what we were doing
But if his love don't pass the test
I gotta get it from somewhere else
When I'm gone and I need a man
Hope he understands
Forgive me baby

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm gonna be myself And I
Can't wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
I can wait no more
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me

Been a long time since I
Did something good for myself
But why should I be put through hell?
He's doing what he wanna do
I finally found somebody else
Who really wants to make me feel
Things that I've been missing so long
And his love always passed the test
It's a shame I had to look somewhere else
When I'm gone and I need a man
I just hope that he understands
Forgive me baby

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm gonna be myself And I
Can't wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
I can wait no more
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me

Forgive me but I need to be loved too
Forgive me but I can't wait around for you
Forgive me if I found a man
Who understands just what I need
Forgive me but I need to be loved too
Forgive me if I can't wait around for you
Forgive me if I found a man who understands
Forgive me baby

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm gonna be myself And I
Can't wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
Hope you forgive me
Oh oh
I can wait no more
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive me

I gotta take a chance tonight
So I'm gonna be myself and I
Can wait no more
Sitting all alone
Man, I really hope
Hope you forgive
Me baby

    Been waiting around till I found out who I really was and what I needed. I knew I wasn't me yet when I met you and that it would'nt go well; but I had ideal dreams of me and I needed you to show me that. So, I finally got it and went with one who fullfilled more of those dreams better. Please forgive me. Relationship Hell is not for me anymore. You've done what you needed to do all along. You'll be okay. It's my turn. But I still hope, you forgive me for expecting more than you could give.
