I think I’ve been here before
Yeah I’ve been right here
With you walking out the door
And I won’t fight it
I think you already know
Don’t try to hide it
You know this time I will go
And I won’t come back

You said you would
Be so different
And your old habits
You would switch them
Look at this picture
Could it get any clearer?
But youre wasting my time

chorus:
And if you see me walking by
You don’t have to spend your time
Asking me if I’m alright
Do I look smarter?
Do I look stronger?
Does it make you wonder?
Well I am, well I am

I think I’ve seen you before
With that sullen face
Telling me that you don’t know why I’m so angry
While you were having some fun
You left me right here
You said you loved me so much

And I don’t want you to say you’re sorry
I know it’s a deeper story
You’re not fine well
I'll ignore it
cause I made up my mind

Chorus

Look at the stars now baby
Don’t let it drive you crazy
And you said
Baby they calling out you’re name
And I said maybe I don’t want to be your baby no more

chorus

    General CommentThis is, in my opinion, one of Nelly's best songs lyrically speaking. It was a cut from the "Loose" recording sessions and if you haven't heard it, I highly recommend that you do! Anyway, on my analysis of it...

    I think the song is basically about a relationship that did not work out or is not working out and Nelly is realizing that it is over but she is better for it. She reminds the guy that he said he would change "his habits" but he hasn't and she wants him to stop wasting her time.

    I like this song also because she is standing her ground by saying, in essence, 'I don't need you to worry about me' or "ask if I'm alright" because I have moved on and I am stronger and smarter for it.

    The guy she is talking o seems to be a real a-hole because he wants to do his thing and forgets about Nelly. There are two versions of this song, both good in their own respects but the first one that was leaked is musically moving because of the dramatic piano sounds. This should've been on "LOOSE"! Go Nelly!
