Girl, can't you see that?
(I want you back)
And I'll do anything to be with you again
(I want you back)
See I messed up, I know, I hurt you
(Just once, I want you back?)
Baby, I'm sorry, can't you see?
(I want you back?)

I remember how I used to make you breakfast
In the morning before you went to work
I remember how I used to give you cookie
For your late night desert but I can't tell you
All the ways or the exact date that we fell apart

Now mama, I ain't trying to justify the way I broke your heart
I'm just trying to make you understand what's there inside my heart
I must have been so blind, see, I thought love was blind
But now I realize, I swear I realize, I want you back

Girl, can't you see that?
(I want you back)
And I'll do anything to be with you again
(I want you back)
See I messed up, I know, I hurt you
(Just once, I want you back?)
Baby, I'm sorry, can't you see?
(I want you back?)

Get on down, come on now
Get on down, come on now
Get on down, come on now

Someone help me find my baby girl
Someone help me find my baby girl
(Someone help me find)

Girl, can't you see that?
(I want you back)
And I'll do anything to be with you again
(I want you back)
See I messed up, I know, I hurt you
(Just once, I want you back?)
Baby, I'm sorry, can't you see?
(I want you back?)

Girl, can't you see that?
(I want you back)
And I'll do anything to be with you again
(I want you back)
See I messed up, I know, I hurt you
(Just once, I want you back?)
Baby, I'm sorry, can't you see?
(I want you back?)
