First let me say, I know it's late
Girl I can tell you were sleeping
So sorry to wake you, but what I'ma say to you tonight
Girl it just couldn't wait, no, not one more day
No, not one more hour
Mmm, we've been a... some time, you went your way I went mine
My manhood won't let me cry
But you act like I'm alright is something I just can't do
Something I just can't do
Keep it... that I'm walking without you
So, something I just can't do
What if I could, I'm just not strong enough to, whoa
Not strong enough to who
Keep lying to you, babe,
I'm just not strong enough to, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl

I can see you looking at me,
You're thinking too little too late
Cause it was me that said that we shouldn't be
But that was before I could think straight
My pride, it made me lie, lie, lie
To you and to myself about what I need
So now I walk around with this lie, truly dying inside
Acting like I'm just fine, it's something I just can't do
Something just I can't do, keep pretending
That I'm okay without, just said something I just can't do
Something I just can't do
What if could I'm just no strong enough to, whoa
Not strong enough to who
Keep lying to you, babe,
I'm just not strong enough to, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl

Said I'm trying to be honest, then making you a promise
I'm gonna be true to you
Cause me trying to deny that without you I would die
Something I just can no longer do
Said I'm trying to be honest, then making you a promise
I'm gonna be true to you
Cause me trying to deny that without you I would die
Something I just can no longer do

Hey, hey, oho, oho, oho, hey
Hey, hey, oho, oho, oho, hey
