"Can U Help Me" as written by Usher Raymond, Terry Lewis and James Samuel Harris Iii....
Living on the edge out of control
And the world just won't let me slow down
But in my biggest picture, was a photo of you and me
Girl U know I try, I work hard to provide all the material things
That I thought would make U happy
I'm confused can U make me understand
Cause I try to give U the best of me
I thought we we're cool maybe I was blind
But never took time to see

Will U help me
Tell me what you want from me
Can U help me
Tell me why U wanna leave
Baby help me
Without U my whole world is falling apart
And I? going crazy
Life's a prison when you're in love alone

I need U to come back home(U know I need U)
I don't wanna be alone

Girl I put your love up on the shelf
And I guess I just left it to die
And now we're not together
'Cause I hurt U too many times

And now you're not around
I wish for every moment of time that got wasted
We used it to make sweet love
Baby be my guide

Please take my hand
I want U to know that I got U if you need it
Don't wanna be on the outside looking in
I gotta have U girl can't U see it

Will U help me
Tell me what you want from me
Should U help me
Tell me why U wanna leave

Baby help me
'Cause Without U my whole world is falling apart
And without you I think I'll go crazy
Life's a prison when you're in love alone

I need U to come back home(U know I need U)
I don't wanna be alone

Please stay don't go
I don't want it to be over
Give me another chance
I wanna be your man
Girl U got me
Down here on my knees
Crying, beggin', pleadin'
I'll do anything for your love

Would U help me
Tell me what you want from me
Can U help me
Tell me why U wanna leave

Baby help me
Without U my whole world is falling apart
And without you girl I'm going crazy
Life's a prison without your love

Can u help me
Tell me why, why, why, why, why
Can u help me
Girl I'll never stop

Girl your all I've got
Can u help me
Help me understand
I can be your man

It's driving me crazy
Oh girl I love ya
You know I need ya
Can't live without ya

Oh girl I love ya
You know I need ya
Can't live without ya
Oh girl I love ya

You know I need ya
Can't live without ya
Oh girl I love ya
You know I need ya

Can't live without ya
You know I need ya

    General Commentthis song is about a man who has lost his luv and he wants her to help him understand why she left because he gave her everything he thought would make her happy. he would trade makin luv to her for some quality time with her. this song is so good and so touching in a way it makes you think that just giving people material things isnt enough, its about giving them your time and attention cause they can be gone the next thing you know.

    General Commenteverytime i listen to this song i think of my gf. it just makes you realize that you have to give your all in a relation, you cant hold back and provide just material things, you have to put your emotional all in a relationship as well.....

    General Commenttha u dont know wat uve got til its gone.
    and it shows usher can admitt tha he was wrong and he understands y him and his girl rnt together nemore he says and now were not 2gether coz i hurt u too many times and now ur not around. this song made soo much sense to me after me and my ex b/f broke up i didnt no wat went wrong and i wanted to know wat he wanted from me coz i did work hard to provide all the material things that i thougth wuld make him happy and you know wat.. i was soo caught up in pleasin him tha i didnt even realise he never bought me one thing!

    General CommentRegrets. Sadly he realized that what he had was specailly...unforturnately he saw this when the woman has already walked out of his life!! This is a beautiful song...sad but yet romantic at the same time. I'll take him back if the woman wouldn't. HAHAHA!
