GETS OVER YOU (2012)

I Can’t Speak For You
Your man seems complete
He’s got gators on his feet
Never can be found looking up and down
At those girls on the street

But I know what he has done
When the curtains have been drawn
Been treating you cruel, acting like a fool
Girl you should be gone

Speak for yourself ’cause I can’t speak for you
Can’t be good when he’s bad for you
All right

He might buy you enough
To keep from bringing up this stuff
Girl you need to get it straight, I won’t hesitate
To tell you who is ruling what

Might have a diamond on that ring
But you are wrapped around his finger
He’s got another one under his thumb
If I were you I wouldn’t linger

Speak for yourself ’cause I can’t speak for you
Can’t be good when he’s bad for you
All right

Good Man
I never met a good man
And I’ve been searching all my days
I never met a good man
One that understands this woman’s ways

And if we should wonder if he’s a good lover
Girl don’t wait now, just give it to him straight
Say no, no, no

Still looking for that good man
He don’t have to wear those fancy threads
Still looking for that good man
Got his own bank roll and a heart that ain’t dead

I won’t get discouraged, I know you’ll be worth it
While I’m waiting tell these fools I ain’t playing
Say no, no, no

No I don’t know how long I can keep it inside
When I think of you and me together
Don’t make things black and white
Cause I know your lady

I won’t get discouraged, I know you’ll be worth it
While I’m waiting tell these fools I ain’t playing

He is so fine and his treasure is all mine
She don’t get it
See I never met a good man ’til I met your man

Can’t Keep Running
You called even when I said I wouldn’t see you
I’m sure, I’m sure enough that I just can delete you
Seven minute messages are on my phone
I can tell you’re calling from your mama’s home
Did you think ’bout what I said
Can’t you get it through your head
I am gone and never coming back

And I just can’t keep running around with you
I just can’t keep wasting my time on you
No no I’m done running around, acting a fool for you
It’s true that I’m done with you

I saw a ride outside and someone in the backseat
I looked close. I saw you in the clothes that you wore since last week.
Watching me through the night won’t bring back
I’m asking you to leave, no I won’t buy your gas
Did you think ’bout what I said
Can’t you get it through your head
I am gone and never coming back

And I just can’t keep running around with you
I just can’t keep wasting my time on you
No no I’m done running around, acting a fool for you
No no I’m done running with you

I just can’t keep running around with you, babe

Tell Everyone The Truth
Lying here alone I feel deserted
Everything he promised me, blinded me, I couldn’t see
That I’d be the one who’s left here hurtin
And if thinks I’ll play the part with a broken heart
I’m not gonna stay calm, not gonna stay home

Tell everyone the truth
Babe you’re gonna pay
Tell everyone the truth
I didn’t wanna go there but I’m a say it anyway
Tell everyone the truth
You messed up and now it’s time for you
Tell everyone the truth

Did you ever stop and think who you were hurting?
While you’re living this whole double life
You bruised my heart but you broke your wife’s
Yeah that’s right I found out. I know all about her
And if he thinks I’ll play the part with a broken heart
Won’t be long before she finds out, best come from your mouth

Tell everyone the truth
Babe you’re gonna pay
Tell everyone the truth
I didn’t wanna go there but I’m a say it anyway
Tell everyone the truth
You messed up and now it’s time for you
Tell everyone the truth

You broke my heart and I let you
You tore it apart said “forget you”
What if I just don’t run back
I don’t run back to you child

You broke my heart and I let you
You tore it apart said “forget you”
What if I just don’t run back
To a broken heart
I’m not gonna stay calm, not gonna stay home

Tell everyone the truth
Babe you’re gonna pay
Tell everyone the truth
I didn’t wanna go there but I’m a say it anyway
Tell everyone the truth
You messed up and now it’s time for you
Tell everyone the truth

You better tell her about me

Should’ve Told Me
We are driving and I can see the southside skyline
You are holding me close and everybody’s feeling alright
We stepped outside in your ride but then I see your face
Is there something on your mind?

Now we’re in love
It’s been a great eight months with you
But there’s another
She’s been around longer than you

Baby it is plain to see
You should’ve told me ’bout your lover

The next night at a party everybody’s watching nobody wants to move
Let’s go home and play our records, baby
Drop that needle watch it catch in the groove
It’s finally time to get mine but then I see your face
Is there something on your mind?

Now we’re in love
It’s been a great eight months with you
But there’s another
She’s been around longer than you

Baby it is plain to see
You should’ve told me ’bout your lover

Now we’re in love
It’s been a great eight months with you
But there’s another
She’s been around longer than you

Baby it is plain to see
You should’ve told me ’bout your lover

I Could Kiss You (I Could Cry)
I know don’t want to lose anybody
Don’t want to see any heartbreak anymore
In the cold I can feel all the people
I can see other lives will just go on

But we got to fight it
Baby we can’t let go
We can’t deny it
It’s something that we both know

I know when they get back to their place
Never see their baby’s face again
So hard, what it makes me feel inside
I could kiss you, I could cry for them

But we got to fight it
Baby we can’t let go
We can’t deny it
It’s something that we both know

We know somebody’s hurting all alone
I could be suffering on my own all alone

Don’t want to lose anybody
Don’t want to see any heartbreak anymore
I know don’t want to lose anybody
I could kiss you, I could cry for them

He Used To Be
We’re back at it again
All my lovers understand
You do what you can
To make it fly

But then there comes a day
He’s tired of all the pain
Decides he just can’t stay
And you’re left to cry

All that I can say is that I used to be
I used to be his baby
There’s nothing left to say but that I used to be
I used to be his baby

He comes to get his things
He’s dropping off his ring
No words I can sing
Will be enough

I asked him how he knew
That me and him were through
There’s nothing I can do to save our love?

All that he can say is that I used to be
I used to be his baby
There’s nothing left to say but that he used to be
He used to be my baby

Wonder if I let him go chances are he might wanna come back
But even if we did would we be able to get over the right track
I can’t have a heart attack

All that I can say is that I used to be
I used to be his baby
There’s nothing left to say but that I used to be
I used to be his baby

Lovin you is so hard, baby
But breaking up is even harder
I don’t know why you can’t come home
Just keep me around just a little bit longer

I’ll do it for you
I’ll tell you the truth
I’ll make you my baby
Let’s do it again
Let’s start it as friends
I’ll make you my baby

All that I can say is that I used to be
I used to be his baby

Half As Much
It takes a man to admit that it’s over
But if you can’t I can do it for sure
Now that she’s gone, put your head on my shoulder
You can love me half as much as you loved her

When you come home got to empty your pockets
And take those pants and throw ’em on the floor
Baby I think you forgot your wallet
You can love me half as much as you loved her

Changing your life is gonna be hard to do
I’m going to break it down for you one more time
You had my love and you lost it
Baby now it’s gonna cost you
You gonna get yours but baby I’m gonna get mine

Don’t act surprised, you knew this was coming
Do what I say or I’ll find the door
You cheat and lie and I’m done with the crying
You can love me half as much as you loved her
I’m taking half when I should take it all
You cheat and you lie
Baby I’m taking it all

Call Girl
Trying to find out the truth
I’m on to you
You’re pulling away from me
What’s wrong with you
Remember when we did it, couldn’t quit it, had to get it at ma’s house
Now you just turn away
I’m walking out this door but if you want me to stay

Just pick up the phone and call me up tonight
Baby I’m trying to be everything that you like
Baby confess what you like best and I will do it right
Don’t worry come to me ’cause I just want to be your call girl tonight

Walking away I feel the weight is lifted is off
But all I know is I need love, I need you
Remember all the hours in the shower, didn’t matter who heard us
I’m taking my time on you
What are we going to do?
But if you want me again

Just pick up the phone and call me up tonight
Baby I’m trying to be everything that you like
Baby confess what you like best and I will do it right
Don’t worry come to me ’cause I just want to be your call girl tonight

Higher
What did you say to me?
You got to be patient with me
‘Cause you got me hungry wanting all of you
Got me done with asking questions ‘bout the truth
See I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around you
Got me searching babe, now there’s nothing left to lose

I’ll do anything you ask me to
I can be there when you need me to
You and your love lift me higher

I know that I’ve been holding out for so long ‘til tonight
I won’t let you get away
Pull me in and I’ll hold you close
Use my teeth and take off your clothes

You’re all I want to feel
And a love that’s real
Babe I know, I never can get enough
It fills me up, I’m ready, and you make me wanna say

I’ll do anything you ask me to
I can be there when you need me to
You and your love lift me higher

And I’ll never come back down again
So addicted to you baby

You make me feel this way

You and your love lift me higher

‘Til It Went Wrong
Baby I ran into you
Saturday night in the Loop
You said you’d be home with your ma
Your dressed to the nines, ladies on each arm

There was a time that I thought I couldn’t live without you
But I’ve gone and changed my mind

No I won’t let you explain
Is that your friend Trina and her friend Jasmine?
And it’s so cold, you’re just trying to keep them warm
I’ve heard it before, I’ll see it again
But now I’m gone

There was a time that I thought I couldn’t live without you
Loving you was so right until it felt wrong
Until it felt wrong

There was a time that I thought you
You’d go and make my dreams come true
You said that you would never let me down
I’m done with your shit, I’m not fooling around
It’s a little too late, baby, I saw you
Getting close with someone new
You done played me, strung me along now
Loving was so right ‘til it felt wrong
