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



Oh... yeah

There goes my old girlfriend
There's a-nother diamond ring
And of all those late night promises
I guess they don't mean a thing

So baby what's the story
Did'cha a find another man
Is it easy to sleep in the bed that we made
When you don't look back I guess
The feelings start to fade away

I used to feel your fire
But now it's cold inside
And you're back on the street
Like you didn't miss a beat yeah
 
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 what it takes to let'choo 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
You spent me up like money
A then ya hung me out to dry
It was 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... oooh
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 what it takes to let you go
 
Guitar

Tell me that'chor happy that'chor on your own
Yeah yeah yeah
Tell me that it's better when you're all alone
Tell me that'chor 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... oooh
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go... yeah
And 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... no no no no 
'Cause I don't wanna burn in paradise
Ooooo... I don't I don't no I don't wanna burn in paradise
Let it go let it go..............
I don't wanna burn...........
