You and I were suppose to go our separate ways
No matter how much I fight it, but still I stay
I can't believe my conscious got the best of me
It's telling me to let it go but I can't walk away
Ya sister called me bout a couple times today
She knew I had to get something off my mind right away
I gotta get a grip, I think I'm losing it
I don't know why I'm so confused, Ooo Yeah

[Chorus:]
I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo
Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away
I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo
Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away

It's killing me, killing me to keep going on this way
I know I love but I don't know if I'm in love with you
It breaks my heart to say.
We got too much work to do
So I don't know why I hold on to you
It gotta be some kinda that we can work this
Or I just gotta get over you Babyy.

[Chorus:]
I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo

Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away
I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo
Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away

See the moral of the story is that
Everybody had a love they ran back to
And I know that you be wishing that they came around
So that you can just go and do you.
And I know that you'll be looking for a girl like me
I'll be looking for a guy like youu.
But it seems that love... is just not enough.

[Chorus:]
I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo
Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away
I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo
Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away

I'm not tryna leave you, believe me
Cause what I'm going thru it, ain't easy, nooo
Should I stay or should I go
But no matter how hard I try, I can't walk away.

    I think this song means alot it telling you that sometimes it's hard as hell to walk away from the person you care about but, at the end of the day it's the best thing to do no matter what i think this is a great song and oliva sure sang her heart out i think she did a great job.
