I thought I'd die when you left but I'm still taking a breath, I'm ok
Now I'm still here now you're gone and I'll keep singing my song, I'm ok
We been fighting, kicking, cussing, screaming, tell me love, what's the reason?
I thought we loved each other so
I’ve been throwing pots and pans not holding hands, oh lover ‘tis the season
But I've gotta let you go
I shoulda known from the start that you'd tear up my heart, I'll never... (I’ll never)

I thought I'd die when you left (I thought I’d die) but I'm still taking a breath, I'm ok
(I thought I could never let you go)
But I'm still here now you're gone (And now you’re gone) and I'll keep singing my song, I'm ok
(Check it out, let me come like this)

Let me hear my baby singing, c’mon

Are you gonna act like you and sneaking out and creeping ‘round?
You're bad at cheating
Thought you were different from them all
Now you gotta look your daughter in the eye and tell her that her daddy's leaving
You're so stereotypical
I shoulda known from the start that you'd tear up my heart, I'll never

I thought I'd die when you left (I thought I’d die) but I'm still taking a breath, I'm ok
(I thought I couldn’t live without you baby)
Now it’s just me and the kid after all that you did, I’m ok
The whole thing make me wanna say…

Let me hear my babies holler, c’mon, sing it baby

(Get up girl) Get up girl and dry your tears
It's messed up how he makes you feel
I know you don't wanna be lonely
And what you gonna do for money?
He's lying, cheating when you're trying to raise a family
Forget that sucker
Drop that sucker
You will make it without him
Get up girl and dry your tears (Get up girl)
It's messed up how he makes you feel
I know you don't wanna be lonely (Don’t wanna be lonely)
And what you gonna do for money? (What you gonna do for money?)
He's lying, cheating when you're trying to raise a family (Raise a family)
Forget that, f**k that
You can make it without him (You can make it without him)
I thought I'd die when you left (You can make it without him) but I'm still taking a breath, I'm ok (Kay)
(I thought I couldn’t live without you baby)
Now it’s just me and the kid after all that you did, I’m ok (Ok)
The whole thing make me wanna say…
‘Cause I’m singing

Let me hear my babies holler, c’mon, sing it baby
