She said that she'd take it off
Right here
Take it off
Right now
Give him back his ring and stay with me
She must think that's what I want to hear

Good as it may sound
I kno myself and that can't be
And I didn't feel bad about it
Had to remind her taht we were just pretend

I said baby I want you
But he needs you
Stay with the real thing
I never loved you like him
See I only want you
But baby he needs you
Stay with the real thing
Stay with the real thing
Stay witchya man

Here comes a tear
Here comes a tear
Baby please don't cry
Don't cry
I thought u knew wat this was
Baby neva coulda take the place
Of ur husband
But we'll always be friends
Baby we shouldn't have become lovers

And I didn't feel bad about it
Had to remind her that we were just pretend
I said baby I want you
But he needs you
Stay with the real thing
I'll never love u like he does
See I only want you
Baby he needs you
Stay with the real thing
Stay with the real thing
Stay witchya man

He's got love for you forever
Why can't you see here with me wont be better
Oh cus I only want you
But he needs you

Stay with the real thing
I never loved you like him
See I only want u baby
But he needs you
Stay with the real thing
Stay with the real thing
Stay witchya man

    God is the real thing that the woman is devoted to and god wants to use this woman to share her love and life with many so that she can bring glory to the kingdom of kindness, respect, love, tolerance, others. But the new love wants her to be devoted to only him

    They love each other. But her husband has more rights than the other guy. So the other guy has to sacrifice and set the girl free from him and so that the husband and her can leave peacefully.
