What It Takes

(Tyler/Perry/Child)

  ooh yeah

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

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

N' TELL ME WHAT IT TAKES TA LET YOU GO
AN' TELL ME HOW THE PAIN'S SUPPOSED TO GO-OO-OH
  oo
AN' TELL ME HOW IT IS THAT
YOU CAN SLEEP IN THE NIGHT
  oo aah
WITHOUT THINKING YOU LOST EVERYTHING

THAT WAS GOOD IN YOUR LIFE
TO THE TOSS OF THE DICE
TELL ME WHAT IT TAKES TA LET YOU GO
YEAH

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

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