Intro:
(Don't forget about us)

Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
No baby, no baby, no baby no
Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
My baby...boy


(Verse I)
Just let it die
With no goodbyes
Details don't matter
We both paid the price
Tears in my eyes
You know sometimes
It be like that baby (yeah)

(Bridge I)
Now everytime I see you
I pretend I'm fine
When I wanna reach out to you
But I turn and I walk and I let it ride
Baby I must confess
We were bigger than anything
Remember us at our best
And don't forget about...

(Chorus)
Late nights, playing' in the dark
And waking' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

(Verse II)
And they say
That you're in a new relationship
But we both know
Nothing comes close to
What we had, it perseveres
And people can't forget it
How big we used to get it
Boy...
(Bridge II)
There's only one me and you
And how we used to shine
No matter who you go through
We are one, that's a fact
That you can't deny
So baby we just can't let
The fire pass us by
Forever we'd both regret it
So don't forget about

(Chorus)
Late nights, playin' in the dark
And waking' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

And at least she got your head all messed up now
That's that trickery
She'll wanna act like you know how this lovin' used to be (ah)
I bet she can't do it like me
She'll never be MC

Baby don't you, don't you
Forget about...

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and baby and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us........(oooh oh)


Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you, babe
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
No baby, no baby, no baby no
Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us.

    This song is about a boy who left her for another girl, and she's telling him not to forget about their relationship. Her vocals are terrific, and she delivers a common message in a Mariah way. A great blend of R&B and hip-hop. Fantastic!

    The genuine meaning of this song, is that a girl cannot and will never forget about her first true love. Because "nothing can compare to your first true love."

    The sorrow narration and description of the protagonist's experience shows that she's still unable to let the feeling of love linger off. She'd be reluctant alright, but she'd gave up.
