What It Takes
(A Little South Of Sanity)

(Tyler/Perry/Child)

THERE GOES MY OLD GIRLFRIEND
THERE'S ANOTHER DIAMOND RING
AND-A ALL THOSE LATE NIGHT PROMISES
I GUESS THEY DON'T MEAN A THING

SO BABY WHAT'S THE STORY
A-DID YA A-FIND ANOTHER MAN
WELL IS IT EASY TA SLEEP
IN THE BED THAT WE MADE
WHEN YA DON'T LOOK BACK
I GUESS THE FEELIN'S START TA FADE AWAY

OH I USED TA FEEL YOUR FIRE
BUT NOW IT'S COLD INSIDE
NOW YOU'RE BACK ON THE STREET
LIKE YOU DIDN'T MISS A BEAT YEAH

TELL ME WHAT IT TAKES TA LET YOU GO
AN' TELL ME HOW THE PAIN'S SUPPOSED TO GO-OO-OH
  aah yeah
TELL ME HOW IT IS THAT YOU CAN SLEEP IN THE NIGHT
WITHOUT THINKING YOU LOST EVERYTHING
THAT WAS GOOD IN YOUR LIFE TO THE TOSS OF THE DICE
AN' TELL ME WHO'S TO BLAME FOR THINKIN' TWICE

GIRL BEFORE I MET YOU I WAS F.I.N.E. - FINE
AH BUT YOUR LOVE MADE ME A PRISONER
YEAH YOUR HEART'S BEEN DOIN' TIME

YEAH YA SPENT ME UP LIKE MONEY
THEN YA HUNG ME OUT TA DRY
WAS IT WAS EASY TA KEEP ALL YOUR LIES IN DISGUISE
'CAUSE YA HAD ME DEEP WITH THE DEVIL IN YOUR EYES

AN' TELL ME WHAT IT TAKES TA LET YOU GO
TELL ME HOW THE PAIN'S SUPPOSED TO GO-OO-OH
TELL ME HOW IT IS THAT YOU CAN SLEEP IN THE NIGHT
WITHOUT THINKIN' YOU LOST EVERYTHING
THAT WAS GOOD IN YOUR LIFE TO THE TOSS OF THE DICE
TELL ME WHO'S TO BLAME FOR THINKIN' TWICE
