It's like whatever I do
Ooh
I Just can't get through you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oh
I never gonna tell u nothin wrong

Now, now she loved me, shawty I loved her
Used to jump up in the maybach and roll out
Used to care, she used to share
The love that she used to give me can't be found
I lost my way, she said she'd stay
And lately I've been sleeping with a ghost
My stock is down and out, I used to be worth my weight in gold
That was before the great depression kicked in and rocked us
And that was before the hurricane came in and stopped us
I told you to leave, but you lied to me
When you said that, baby no worries I promise to get us back

I know sorries, just wouldn't do it
Her heart is obliterated, I'm trying to travel through
But it's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains... hey
But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
And the sky turns grey, and the water from the rain washes progress away
It's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains...
Why just leave me, just leave me, be
Just leave me, just leave me, be
Why you just leave me, just leave me, Be
Why you just leave me, just leave me be ooh

She, she don't touch me, I don't touch her
We aint really even ever say a word.
I really want to give her everything she deserves
But, the bad took away the good
She thinks that I'm full of it, arguments, always pissed, man I'm tired
Every kiss, that I missed, girl you know I'm trying
You never believe me when I say, and I never believe it when you say
I love you, and I shouldn't complain about it
I should take it like a man and walk up out it
Cause we will never be the same ooh
I've been standing in gas, and you have been the flames

I know sorries, just wouldn't do it
Her heart is obliterated, I'm trying to get through
Gotta move this mountain, yeah
It's like moving mountains... hey
But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
And the sky turns grey, and the water from the rain washes progress away
It's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains...
Well baby why you just leave me,
Just leave me, be
Just leave me, just leave me, be
Why you just leave me, just leave me, be
Why you just leave me, just leave me be ooh

[Background singing]
This must be a slow death,
that i'm travelin' on.
It feels so wrong, i'm
barely holdin' on
See, no matter what it takes
i've gotta get it together.

And these hills that im travelin' up
She ain't showin' me love
I'm down on my love

I know sorries, just wouldn't do it
Her heart is obliterated, I'm trying travel through
But it's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains... hey
But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
And the sky turns grey, and the water from the rain washes progress away
It's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains...
Well baby why you just leave me,
Just leave me, be
Just leave me, just leave me, be
Why you just leave me, just leave me, be
Why you just leave me, just leave me be ooh

    alot of times the relationships have bumps in the road that this guy is trying to fix before it ends like for ex. a person who loves me would do anything to save me , help me or not try to let me go and i think this is what this song is trying to say that nothing can go wrong if you just fix it when he sings moving mountains i think he is trying to say girl dont go my life is meaningless without you

    hmm... i think what the song is about is... The guy has done something wrong by her, (I lost my way, she said she'd stay). Even though the girl said they'd get through it, he can feel that they will never again get the amount of trust back into the relationship which took them years to build. So he tries to break through that barrier, but it is too strong for him. she has put up a wall to stop herself from getting hurt again, and after trying, trying and more trying, he realizes that, even though he still loves her immensley, he will never be able to break that barrier, never be able to rebuild wat was lost!! Once u do that to someone... u can't just hit restart, the barrier will be perminant. thats wat i think anyways!

    I think the song depicts "love ruined by trust"...Obviously the guy messed up and eventually the girl lost her trust in him...Its not just an issue of trust alone...what makes it a very sad song is that...despite losing trust on his man...she continues to love stay with the relationship and thats what is killing him...(why you just leave me)...Its a very sad song becuase despite his efforts in making things work out...her heart is really obliterated...In a relationship...TRUST is very much important...its easy to fall in love and be in a relationship...buts its really hard to keep up the relationship...Once trust is lost...its very difficult to believe somebody and Trust him again...

    This song is about my life . . . My baby's father and I had a great relationship. I was diagnosed with cancer and told him I needed him, and ever since then he has been there for me. We loved each other and just for the first time in 2 years told each other so here recently. Yesterday I found out he has a girlfriend, he got caught so to speak. What hurts is that he tried to hide it from me, not that he didn't tell me. He was never honest with me about her. Real love is not jealous and I love him enough to let him go. If he belongs to me, he will return. This is like moving mountains, because I'm the one that's like I will still be here and he is still being dishonest. The really hurting thing is that he chooses to be with her over our 5 month old daughter. When I look into her eyes, I see her longing for her daddy. That's one mountain I can't move because I know she needs him. I will be okay, I'll survive cancer and I'll survive this. But how do you tell a 5 month old that her father doesn't care enough about her to put his own life on hold and spend time with her. That's not a mountain, that's a mountain range!
