Intro:
Oooh, why her, why her?
Why her, her? Uh-huh

Verse 1:
Last TEAR just fell from my eyes
Told myself that I wasn't gonna cry no more
You did what you did, it is what it is,
And that's why I walked out the door
Moved on with my life, but not really,
Spent too much time wondering, "How could you?"
You do this to us, thought we were in love
Guess I was thinking too much

Pre-Chorus:
Always thinking that the sex had you locked
You never could get enough 'cause you know I kept it hot
I listened to you tell me your dreams
And your fears, I wiped your tears.
I was there and that's why this is hurting me

Chorus:
Why her? Why her?
Did I get on your nerves?
Did I give you too much
That you couldn't handle my love?
Why her? Why her?
Tell me what she was worth
To make you put her first
I'm listening

Bridge:
You wanna come back,
But I gotta know why her?
Thought she was all that,
Then why you at my door?
Look at you, look at us,
What's all this for?
Hope you got the answer to my question
Why her?

Verse 2:
This gon' be the last time we say goodbye
Ain't gonna be no re-runs of this episode
You did what you did, it is what it is
Maybe if you would've told me
You weren't happy, you weren't satisfied
We could've worked it out,
Baby we could've tried
But you didn't say nothing
All along faking and fronting
Why?

Pre-Chorus:
Always thinking that the sex had you locked
You never could get enough 'cause you know I kept it hot
I listened to you tell me your dreams
And your fears, I wiped your tears.
I was there and it hurts me

Chorus:
Why her? Why her?
Did I get on your nerves?
Did I give you too much
That you couldn't handle my love?
Why her? Why her?
Tell me what she was worth
To make you put her first
I'm listening

Bridge:
You wanna come back,
But I gotta know why her?
Thought she was all that,
Why you at my door?
Look at you, look at us,
What's all this for?
Hope you got the answer to my question
Why her?

Spoken:
Now ladies y'all know I speak from experience right?
I used to just look at him and wonder why, why her?
You know what I'm saying?
But ladies I learned not to worry about them
Living the happily ever after.
'cause see that shit was built on a lie,
So it's sure to fall.
That's why I stand tall.
I just looked at him and said "this right here?"

Baby, baby, baby can you tell me?

Chorus:
Why her? Why her?
Did I get on your nerves?
Did I give you too much
That you couldn't handle my love?
Why her? Why her?
Tell me what she was worth
To make you put her first
I'm listening

The grass looks greener on the other side,
But I promise you'll be back tonight
Look at you, look at us,
What's all this for?
Hope you got the answer to my question,
Why her?

    I think of all the women, including myself that have been cheated on walked out on, abused. The question in the back of all of our minds is why her? What did she have that i didn't what did she do that i didn't. Especially when your under the pretense that everything is fine and your doing your part. Like she said faking and fronting.. Be a man.
