Toya – I Messed Up lyrics

Convicted you mistreated you from what I thought was true
Neglected you, disrespected you I hated you
I only knew I had no clue of who she was to you
So the first thing to do was to find ways to get back at you
So I took a nobody, turned him into somebody
So your body could fell the same pain in my body
Now I see I made a fool of me
She turned out to be someone close to the family
I know sometimes I go on ego trips
Sometimes for no reason I start to flip
Slowly I've torn down the love we built
Now I'm swallowin' my pride
I need you in my life

Boy don't turn and walk away
I messed up
Don't throw it all away
I messed up
Just put the blame on me
I messed up
Oh, oh, oh I messed up
I'm confessing my mistakes
I messed up
Don't take your love away
I messed up
What will it take for you to stay
I messed up
Oh, oh, oh I messed up

I've been dishonest, broke promises I know I made
Told secrets we said we'd take to our grave
I wish I could take it back the wrong I did
But what's done is done
I just hope you can forgive
Sometimes I chill with friends to ease the pain
When they leave it seems to hurt again
At night I pray for another chance
Only God knows how I'm suffering
Boy please step away from the door
What happened won't happen anymore
Should've said this before
I'm swallowing my pride 'cause I need you in my life

Boy don't turn and walk away
I messed up
Don't throw it all away
I messed up
Just put the blame on me
I messed up
Oh, oh, oh I messed up
I'm confessing my mistakes
I messed up
Don't take your love away
I messed up
What will it take for you to stay
I messed up
Oh, oh, oh I messed up

Day by day gets harder for me to past the time away
Pictures slowly fade, memories replayed
Remember you, you always use to say
Our love will never stray
You'll never take you love away
Never knew you'd be this way
Until you walked away
No more sunny days
It rains on my parade
With you I had it so good
If I could take it back
I swear I would

Boy don't turn and walk away
I messed up
Don't throw it all away
I messed up
Just put the blame on me
I messed up
Oh, oh, oh I messed up
I'm confessing my mistakes
I messed up
Don't take your love away
I messed up
What will it take for you to stay
I messed up
Oh, oh, oh I messed up

I'm admitting I was wrong
I messed up
Don't leave me here alone
I messed up
I don't think I could go on
Oh, oh, oh I messed up
Boy look into my eyes
I messed up
My pain is hard to describe
I messed up
I'm confessing my mistakes
Oh, oh, oh I messed up

Don't you take you love away
