"Pullin' Me Back" as written by Brian Alexander Morgan, Howard Earl Bailey, Jaco Pastorius, Jermaine Dupri and James C. Phillips....
[Chorus]
Every time I try to leave
Somethin' keeps pullin' me back, me back
Telling me I need you in my life
Every time I try to go
Somethin' keeps tellin' me that, me that
Everything gon be alright
Every time I try to leave
Something keeps pullin' me back, me back
Telling me I need you in my life
It was meant to be
You were meant for me
So that means we gotta make it work

It was all good at first,
Spendin' money, goin' shoppin'
Eatin' at the finest restaurants
And then from club hoppin'
She was right thurr with me bottle poppin' livin' that life
She just didn't understand my lifestyle and that I don't like
We didn't have a worry in the world, got you diamonds got you pearls
Cut can't help it if Ching-A-Ling been attracting all the girls
Baby I'm a superstar and that come wit it
You got a good nigga on the side, you betta run wit it
Even though I'm on tha road doin' shows
I make time for me n her, relationship to grow
They tell me don't trust a woman in this industry
But she not any woman, more like a sacred friend to me
Plus, when I'm outta town, always think of her
May conversate with some chicks, but no one come above her
(Uh) I thought I was your man
Guess you ain't understand
N now I'm sittin' here, lookin' crazy like
Damn!

[Chorus]

Walkin' to house from hard work, my head hurts
Instead of arguin', can I have dinner with some dessert (uh uh)
She talkin' 'bout this phone number she found
Hey, give me time to put my bags down
She's straight up, clowned
Before we end up fightin', let me leave
I'm exhausted and dis hurr, I don't need
Now I'm wit the fellas ridin' n drinkin'
She's blowin' my two way up but I need some time for thinkin'
(Yeah) I wanna go back, but something sayin' naaaw
Give her some space and the next day I might call
What should I do
Look, let me ask ya'll
Should I stay and talk, or let this relationship fall
I ain't down on what happened, my feelings crushed
But it happens some time
It's either love it or give it up
I thought I was your man
Guess you ain't understand
Now I'm sittin' here lookin' crazy like
Damn!

[Chorus]

[JD:] Chingy holla at dem again !!

Ta all the fellas know you feel me, if you eva had a woman
Good times led to bad times n you ain't see it coming
Try the best to make her happy
But it wasn't enough
'Cause mamma told me in relationship to roll ya bluff
I don't wanna have my head down
Weak n stressed out
As bad as it hurts I gotta move to the next round
(Uh) I thought I was her man
Guess she ain't understand
N now she's sittin' hurr lookin' crazy like
Damn!

[Chorus:]

    General CommentThere are always issues in a relationship that makes things hard. The couple in the song's been through highs and the glamorous life, but the attention the guy’s been getting from other girls makes the woman insecure and not trust her man. This leads to constant fights and arguments that the man’s sick and tired of having to go through, so he wants to give up and leave the relationship. But “Every time I try to leave/ Somethin keeps pullin me back, me back / Telling me I need u in my life / Every time I try to go /Somethin keeps tellin me that, me that / Everything gon be alright” the man fails in packing his bags and leave because he still has feelings for the woman and wants to make the relationship work.. So basically this song is about the man’s frustration in having to explain himself all the time to his woman, he loves her enough to want to stay by her but her insecurities and distrust in him is just making it too hard.

    General CommentIt kinda relates to what I'm going through with my ex. I'm not the kind of girl to become dependent on someone. But he's got this hold on me that I just can't let go of. We've gone through alot...both ups and downs, and I still love him.

    Such a good song. I like Chingy's slower stuff because, they're actually stuff you can relate to without being too metaphorical.

    General Commentthe guys famous and every girl wants him

    he tells his woman to just forget it, he loves her, not them. she is crazy obsessed and wont leave him alone.
    but then he wants to leave her because hes sick of it..but hes in love and thats pulling him back from saying "its over"
