Verse 1:
He's the kind of guy
That runs the streets
But he treats me good
And he makes his dough illegally
That's how he's taking care of me
And I respect the fact that
He's chosen the life
But it keeps me up late at night
And I just can't spend my time
Wondering where he's at, is he okay?
I wanna be by his side
Will I commit a crime
Bonnie to his Clyde and
I don't wanna live that way


Chorus:
I love my baby so
But he's not here no more
It's hard for me to understand
So I wrote this song
Couldn't look him in his eyes
No I couldn't change his mind
So I wrote this melody
And I'm singing sweet goodbye


Verse 2:
Though he promised that he would never put me in harm's way
That's something that he can't control cause
The game remains the same
Now he says he wants out of here
But he's in too deep
And the only way that he will go is killing him or even me
So this is where I'm at and it hurts so bad
That I have to chose if I wanna live, or die with you


Chorus:
I love my baby so
But he's not here no more
Hard for me to understand
So I wrote him this song
I couldn't look him in his eyes no I couldn't change his mind
So I wrote this melody
And I'm singing sweet goodbye

Bridge:
I tried to give him hope
And promise him my life
But I don't know what made him want to lead this life
And as he went away
The tears fell from my eyes
And there's no turning back
There's only goodbye


Chorus:
I love my baby so
But he's not here no more
It's hard for me to understand
So I wrote him this song
Couldn't look him in his eyes no I couldn't change his mind
So I wrote this melody
And I'm singing sweet goodbye

I love my baby so
But he's not here no more
It's hard for me to understand
So I wrote him this song
I couldn't look him in his minds
No I couldn't change his mind
So I wrote this melody
And I'm singing sweet goodbye


I love you so
I need you so
It's hard to imagine
My life here with you
I love you so
I need you so
It's hard to imagine
My life here with you
Without you
Without you
