It's a shame you ain't wanted when you had it
Gave my love and you took the shit for granted
And it was me those nights that you didn't come home
Crying to my momma blowing up your phone
Just wait a little while baby you gon' see
That this gon' hurt you more than it hurt me

One thing that I know for sure
Is you gon' miss me when I go
And it's gon' hurt babe
When you're all alone
I guess it's true what people say
You never know
What you have until it's gone

You can never say I didn't try
Gave my all but I couldn't make you fight
And it was me those nights that you didn't come home
Crying to my momma blowing up your phone
Just wait a little while baby you gon' see
That this gon' hurt you more than it hurt me

One thing that I know for sure
Is you gon' miss me when I go
And it's gon' hurt babe
When you're all alone
I guess it's true what people say
You never know
What you have until it's gone

And I can't see enough that it's gon' be me who miss no
And I can't see enough that it ain't gon' be no better
I'm tryna make you realise
I cried and I cried so many times
But one thing I know
It's gon' hurt when you go
But one thing that I know babe

One thing that I know for sure
Is you gon' miss me when I go
And it's gon' hurt babe
You're all alone
I guess it's true what people say
You never know
I guess it's true what people say
You never know
What you have until it's gone

    You'll never know what you had until it's gone. So pay attention to what you have now cause you'll never know how good you have it till it's all gone

    One never knows th meaning of something good until its gone. Always let your lover know what he/she means because when he/she is gone u cant. I love this video music video.

    All about life and relationships. Putting your trust and giving your all to your partner and they screw it up, i mean you really have nothing much left. But when you get up and actually leave, oh best believe they gon hurt !

    My boyfriend is with another one and still calls me. Why if you're happy do you want to keep hurting me

    It means, to me that is, that a man better watch the way he treats a woman because when she dies that's it. Theres no more of her, and you know you will miss her. So watch the way you treat a woman or the opposite sex.
