Classified – Breaking Up lyrics

[Intro - Sample with Female Singer]
How can I give you, what you're asking for?
Oh baby
When the feeling is gone (when the feeling is gone)

[Verse 1 - Classified]
It's been a while since we last conversated, still
Can't believe we never made it
Lookin back at the way it was, high school love, both
Of us embraced it
Let me take it back a bit, to the place where the whole
Story starts
Before we ever had a clue or even knew, how hard
Relationships are
We was in the same class and I, use to try to make her
Laugh, then I
Tried to take it farther then a friend, but she just a
Little hesistant
It took longer then I thought, yeah I'll admit it, but
I stayed patient
Was a lot like the music game, never had the skills but
I had the motivation
Then in Grade 12, hooked up, became officially involved
I got the lady I've been waitin on, you could say the
The mystery is solved
I graduated that year but never left, stayed another
Told my parents I was upgradin, really I was waitin for
You to be done
After that, moved to the big city, got a small place
Slept, lived, drank, ate together, but it made it hard
For us to stay together
Life is oh so unexpected, shouldn't have, the good and
Now I'm lookin back at it all, these are problems a man
And woman have

[Chorus - Chad Hatcher] (Kaleigh Cole) - with ad libs
She says that I should leave, she says I should go
She don't understand, all I've been waitin for is
Everything [is everything]
For something [for something], to change [change]

(But I think that I should stay, things could be the
It's just me and you, with no one to blame
But you don't see [but you don't see]
It's only me [it's only me], that would change)

How can I give you, what you're asking for, ohhh baby
When that feeling is gone

[Verse 2 - Classified]
So after about a year or so, a lot of bickerin and
Fightin came
Everything we had together, fell apart slow, never
Seemed worth the pain
More hatin then there was lovin, both arguin about
Neither one of apologize, I guess the two of us were
Too stubborn
Still lived together though, though decided maybe we
Should take a break
I never really wanted that, I just wanted change, that
Was my mistake
I never thought we would break up, never thought I'd
Find another like her
But I was still thinkin we'd get back together and
These loose ends would become tighter
But no way, no luck, threw the towel in, we broke up
I moved out, choked up, depressed every day I woke up
Found out she had another man and this is when it
Really hit home
Fuck I lost everything I had and I ain't the type who
Likes to be alone
Now I'm tryin to move along and I felt it difficult to
Stay strong
But dark days always brighten up, if the fight in ya
Keeps movin on
A couple months after all of this, I bumped into
Another girl I knew
Had a couple dates in high school, a type of girl you
Don't forget, simply beautiful
We talked for a little bit, we took some time out and
And I forgot about my dark days, she taught me
Heartbreak can lead to happiness
When I was down and had no faith, she showed me
Everything is okay
My soul mate, I never would of thought a break up could
End so great

[Chorus:] - with ad libs

[Outro - Sample with Female Singer]
How can I give you, what you're asking for?
Oh, let's go our separate ways, oh baby
