Baby, why'd you love me? Baby why do you care?
See, I ain't never loved nobody, lovers should beware.
Baby why do you love me? Baby why do you say
That you ain't never loved nobody, the way that you do love me?
Well I say.. (instrumental)
Baby why do you trust me? Why do you believe?
Most things I be saying' roll right off my sleeve.
Baby why do you call me up, and say you're missing me?
I don't intent to keep in touch, I just want to be free
And I say No, let it go. Let me go. You got to let go.
Lord why do you tell me, Lord why do you say,
Just call on your name, to take my pain away?
Lord why should I listen? and Lord why should I pray?
See you aint showing me a damn thing, and I been praying all G** damn day
Well I say No, let it go. I say no, you got to let go.
And I say No, let it go, let me go, you got to let go.
Here we are, here we are, here we are again.
No no no.
