Lately we've been having the same convo about 2-3 times a week
Girl I know how much he put you through, now
Still you trying to play the role so I act like I just don't know
Every time we speak
All it takes is just one look at you

I can see it in your eyes, you haven't been happy in a long time
Hey, you know, I know you too well for you to try to hide it
You deserve it, baby you deserve the best
It's a shame you that settle for less,
So it's about time for me to get something above my chest

Baby, oh, I've been holding this back, back, for too damn long
And you've been holding on to a man that loves you not
Whoa, girl let me show you what real love's about
Give me that chance
And I'ma show you how, how
How you supposed to be loved
Show you how,

Men put you off guard, but you know that every single word I'm saying is true
Same way that you know ain't nothing that your boy won't do for you
Deep down you know I'm right, but you're scared
I know it, just too afraid to show it

I can see it in your eyes, you haven't been happy in a long time

Hey, you know, I know you too well for you to try to hide it
You deserve it, baby you deserve the best
It's a shame you that settle for less,
So it's about time for me to get something above my chest

Baby, oh, I've been holding this back, back, for too damn long
And you've been holding on to a man that loves you not
Whoa, girl let me show you what real love's about
Give me that chance
And I'ma show you how, how
How you supposed to be loved
I'ma show you how, how

Baby when I get at you, should I spell it out for me
Girl I think it's time that you...
To get out, what you...
Cause love, what I'll beginning
... from the beginning, just say you're with it baby

Baby, oh, I've been holding this back, back, for too damn long
And you've been holding on to a man that loves you not
Whoa, girl let me show you what real love's about
Give me that chance
And I'ma show you how, how
How you supposed to be loved
I'ma show you how, how.
