"How To Deal" as written by David Porter, Ronnie Williams, Bryan Michael Paul Cox and Francisco J. Bautista Jr.....
Sometimes a man has to choose
And do something he doesn't want to do
Do I live my life with you as my wife
Or do I go on and pursue my lifetime dream
I gotta do this for me
'Cause if I don't I'll probably regret it
But if I do I'll probably regret it
How do I cope

How do you cope when
The one you love is with somebody else
And there's nothing you could do about it
How do I deal with
The fact that you had a chance
But you chose to turn away for your career
I gotta take it though it's heartbreakin'
It's something that I had to do
But nobody said that it would hurt so bad
So how do I live, how do I deal without you

It's killing me to know
That your heart hurts with me
But you're with him cause I chose
To be in this industry
Money, shows, and hoes come along with luxury and pain
Is all you see when you think about it
But this is the life that I was given
So I have to live it to the fullest
But how do I deal in the meantime without you

How do you cope when
The one you love is with somebody else
And there's nothing you could do about it
How do I deal with
The fact that you had a chance
But you chose to turn away for your career
I gotta take it though it's heartbreakin'
It's something that I had to do
But nobody said that it would hurt so bad
So how do I live, how do I deal without you

    General CommentThis song is about giving up/leaving your love to further your career... After doing this the love gets with someone else (even though their heart is still with you) and you hate nothing more than thinking about them together and your not sure how your going to continue living without her/him...
    Very sad song, but so many people can relate to it and I think soon enough i will to... School is coming to and end and eventually im going to have to choose my future/career over my girlfriend...
