"Don't Say Goodbye Girl" as written by and Narada Michael/dakota Walden....
Baby, don't stand there in the doorway
With all your bags ready to go
Baby sit down, and let's talk it over
Oh I need to know

What do you think you're gonna find?
A man that treats you sweeter
What are you looking for?
A place where the grass grows greener
The world is cold out there
I'm the one who really cares

Don't say goodbye girl
Take a look inside and read my mind girl
Everything I do, I do for you
Don't leave me crying, crying

Maybe my crime was caring 'bout you
Wanting you close by my side
Maybe you need some space around you
Some room to fly

Don't ever think I'll hold you back
My love will lift you higher
And when you call my name
I'll be there right beside you
Together we'll get by
Give this love another try

Don't say goodbye girl
Take a look inside and read my mind girl
Everything I do, I do for you
Don't leave me crying, crying

Baby you know you mean the world to me
(You mean the world to me)
I never loved nobody the way that I love you
(Never loved nobody)
The way it feels when I'm close to you
(Feels so good baby)
When I'm holding you touching you

What do you think you're gonna find?
No man could treat you sweeter
Just wait and you will see
We'll make the grass grow greener
The world is cold out there
I'm the one who really cares

Don't say Don't say goodbye girl
Take a look inside and read my mind girl
Everything I do, I do for you
Don't leave me crying, crying

Don't say goodbye girl
Take a look inside and read my mind girl
Everything I do, I do for you
Don't leave me crying, crying

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a bf I had one time that was way too damn needy and clingy. Every other word out of his mouth was either how much he needed me, or how much he couldn't do without me... after a while that got very old! Needless to say I broke up with him pretty quickly, but it still was a messed up experience. This song is just like my situation in that the guy is very dependent and needy and doesn't feel like he'll survive without her. It's easy to feel bad for him because he is genuinely in love with this girl, but still... it's bad for the girl who is getting smothered. Tevin says, "Everything I do I do for you." Do you know how much pressure that puts on the girl? And just because the guy feels that way doesn't mean she feels the same way about him. You can't force someone to love you, and any attempts to do so will simply push them farther away. I love this song, and in essence it is very sweet; because hell let's face it: everybody wants to be loved. But, this song reminds me that too much love can be scary.

    General CommentYeah but you can see this is essentially on the verge of a break-up, and hes showing how much he cares. I don't think he just says it all the time cos yeah - that would get old and tiresome...
    I think hes just showing how much this girl means to him before she walks away
