What It Takes
( Tyler / Perry / D. Child )



There goes my old girlfriend
There's a... nother 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'cha... a find another man
Well is it easy to sleep in the bed that we made
When you don't look back I guess
The feelings start ta fade away

I used to feel your fire
But now it's cold inside
Now you're back on the street
Like you didn't miss a beat ch-yeah
                      
Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go... ah yeah
Tell me how it is that'choo 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
                                           
Girl before I met'choo I was F.I.N.E. fine
A but'chor love made me a prisoner
Yeah your heart's been doing time
Yeah... you spend me up like money
And then ya hung me out to dry
Was it easy to keep all your lies in disguise
'Cause you had me in deep
With the devil in your eyes
                      
Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go
Tell me how it is that'choo 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
                      
A guitar

Ooooo  ooooaa ooooa ooooa...

Tell me that'chor happy that'chor on your own
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Tell me that it's better when you're all alone
Tell me that your body doesn't miss my touch
Tell me that my lovin' didn't mean that much
Tell me you ain't dying
When you're cryin' for... me
                      
Tell me what it takes to let you go... oooooouua
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go... tell'er I said it...
Tell me how it is that'choo 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 throwin' rice... no no no no no 
'Cause I don't wanna burn in Paradise
Oooooaa...
I don't... I don't... no I don't guess I got to get some booty too... yeah
Let it go... let it go... let it go... let it go... let it go... let it go... let it go... let it go...

I don't wanna burn...
I don't wanna burn...
Love you girl you sexy

Oooo... oooo... ooo...........
