Woooah woah wooah yeeah yeeah
Saw you for you yeah
Remember (X15) you changed my life in so many way I just look back to how I used to be and how you dealt with me just want to thank you for...
Just in case I never see your face again (face again)
Just in case the worst was meant to happen (happen)
Just in case tomorrow never come there is something you should know (should know)
I've given you every bit of the man I am (of the man I am)
I know at times it wasn't pretty but it was all I had
I never held back not one lil bit and the world can attest to this
And baby you flipped my program upside down (listen to me now)

I was a hustler and player girl before I met you
I took a lil' somthing and hit a lil' something before I met you
But how you made a difference
Ohh, Look what I been missin
You got my life together and I thank you forever
I really used to throw a lot
Before I met you
Had a new one every night and sometimes I had two
But all that done changed my game my frame of mind you got it right
And I love you life girl I love you for life

There was so many times I wasn't there for you
And for everyone of those times I hated myself for
The way I went about it the ups and the downs one foot in while the other foots out
Loving on you loving on another and I ain't no different from any other brothers
What I did to you right here right now in this here place
In this here space as my heart pour out as I state my place as I break it down
To tell you where I'm coming from so you've seen the good you've done
So you've feel the change you've made stay with me everyday

I was a hustler and player girl before I met you
I took a lil something and hit a lil something before I met you
But how you made a difference
Ohh, Look what I been missin
You got my life together and I thank you forever
I really used to throw a lot
Had a new one every night and sometimes I had two
But all of that done changed my game my frame of mind you got it right
And I love you life girl I love you for life

Girl if I died tonight before I wake
Know that you touched my life in oh so many ways
And should they end this song as all I had to give would you remember
Remember my heart remember it was good remember I tried as hard as I could
Remember that I gave till I had nothing else remember my voice

I was a hustler and player girl before I met you
I took a lil something and hit a lil something before I met you
But how you made a difference
Ohh, Look what I've been missing
You got my life together and I thank you forever
I really used to throw a lot before I met you
But I do one every night and sometimes I had two
But all that has changed my game my frame of mind you got it right
And I love you life yo I love you for life

Wooah woooaah woooaah
Remember (X15)
Yeah yeah yeah woooah
Won't you remember?

    The meaning to this song I do beleive to be is, Usher is realizing that a woman that he has possibly loved in the past has made him a better man by loving him and all that meant she withstood all that he is as a man, and as an entertainer. The life of an entertainer is not an easy one especially if you are in a commuted relationship with that person, you have to deal with the press, him being on the road and long nights in the studio and let's not forget the constant temptation of groupies. This song is a way for Ushee to tell that person "thank you For helping me become that man I always knew I could be and no matter what happens I will always and forever love you for that"
