"Bad Habit" as written by Solange Knowles, Kelendria Rowland, Ashley Kendrick and Bryan Michael Paul Cox....
How many times
Are you gonna apologize
About the same thing
And how many times
Can I take you back
When I'm not the one that's doing wrong
I thought maybe If I started praying
Then we would get better but
When I would pray, the answer would always come
Back to me, being done
But we're so hard headed
When we're in love

So I

I told myself
That I would make some changes
But the more I change
There's one thing that remains the same
I can't seem to shake ya
You seem to really have a hold on me

And every time that we break up
We turn around and make up
This can't go on now
I've gotta move on now
It's not the fact
I love you no more
But I've got to break this bad habit
Can't take this bad habit no more

I'm totally out of my element
I'm learning new ways to live
While you're in a comfort zone
Not even thinkin' (gotta think about me)
To call me when I get mad you buy me gifts
Thinkin' it's gonna solve every issue

From the girl callin' my phone
To the pictures that I saw
And every time you would break up with me
For nothing at all
I've taken all I can take
(I've taken all I can take)
But the way I live has gotta change
Oh

I told myself
That I would make some changes
But the more I change
There's one thing that remains the same
I can't seem to shake ya
You seem to really have a hold on me

And every time that we break up
We turn around and make up
This can't go on now
I've gotta move on now
It's not the fact
I love you no more
But I've got to break this bad habit
Can't take this bad habit no more

And bring it down

Have you ever loved somebody
So much that you was just too blind to see
Oh yes!
All of the pain, that they was causing you (causing you)
Ladies, do you feel me (do you feel me)

Have you ever loved somebody
So much that you went against
The right thing that you should do
Ooh, ooh
Then it's time to make a change (time to make a change)

I told myself
That I would make some changes
But the more I change
There's one thing that remains the same
I can't seem to shake ya
You seem to really have a hold on me

And every time that we break up
We turn around and make up
This can't go on now
I've gotta move on now
It's not the fact
I love you no more
But I've got to break this bad habit
Can't take this bad habit no more

    General CommentThis is a really good song! It's about a girl who keeps forgiving a guy and letting him back into her life even though he's been nothing been drama and doing all the wrong things. And she realizes that even though she loves him, she has to learn to let him go and move on with life because nothing is working out.

    General CommentWHAT THIS SONG MEANS::
    this song is about a girl who keeps changing herself for her boyfriend. she feels like shes in love, and she wants it to work so bad, that she doesnt realize that he [[the boyfriend]] isnt treating her right and that shes hurting herself by being in this relationship. Like changing herself for a guy is not good. And they keep breaking up but she always forgives him and falls back into his trap.
