Verse 1]
First things first girl recognize
Who is wit you now
How you were treated before I came see
Second thing, can't blame me for
I'm not Steven, Anthony even, Leroy or Ivan
Damn girl I've been right there for you

Since day one, so where's all this coming from
See now I'm not to blame for the pain
[Chorus]
That was caused by previous cats, yeah
I'm not to blame for the pain
Who had your heart before me, girl no
That was caused by previous cats
You gotta see me for me

[Verse 2]
Where I've been and why must you roll your eyes
Now what is with all the questioning about
When I say she's just a friend I knew before
Not like I call you Sabrina, Pam or Tanisha
Andrea either. Girl we go deeper then any other
I had before so tell me why you ignore.

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Now I don't know (I don't know)
What them young boys did (what them young boys did)
To make you insecure, but I think you need to let it go
(Let it go) don't let your past get all in the way
Cause what is here today may not be guaranteed tomorrow
I'm not out of line just speaking my mind when I say that I
I put in to much time for another's brother's crimes
