"Potential Break Up Song" as written by and Eddie Hinton Marlin Greene....
It took too long, it took too long, it took too long for you to call back
And normally I would just forget that
Except for the fact it was my birthday
My stupid birthday

I played along, I played along, I played along, rolled right off my back
But obviously my armor was cracked
What kind of a boyfriend would forget that?
Who would forget that?

The type of guy who doesn't see what he has until she leaves
Don't let me go
'Cause without me, you know you're lost, wise up now or pay the cost
Soon you will know

You're not livin' till you're livin'
Livin' with me
You're not winnin' till you're winnin'
Winnin' me
You're not gettin' till you're gettin'
Gettin' me
You're not livin' till you're livin'
Livin' for me

This is the potential breakup song
Our album needs just one
Oh baby, please
Please, tell me

We got along, we got along, we got along until you did that
Now all I want is just my stuff back
Do you get that?
Let me repeat that
I want my stuff back

You can send it in a box
I don't care, just drop it off
I won't be home
'Cause without me, you know you're lost
Minus you I'm better off
Soon you will know

You're not livin' till you're livin'
Livin' with me
You're not winnin' till you're winnin'
Winnin' me
You're not gettin' till you're gettin'
Gettin' me
You're not livin' till you're livin'
Livin' for me

You can try, you can try
You know I know it'd be a lie
Without me you're gonna die
So you better think clearly, clearly
Before you nearly, nearly
Mess up the situation that your gonna miss dearly, dearly
C'mon

You're not livin' till you're livin'
Livin' with me
You're not winnin' till you're winnin'
Winnin' me
You're not gettin' till you're gettin'
Gettin' me
You're not livin' till you're livin'
Livin' for me

This is the potential breakup song
Our album needs just one
Oh baby, please
Please, tell me

This is the potential break-up song
Please, just admit you're wrong
Which will it be?
Which will it be?

    General CommentI think the last verse says,

    "This is the potential MAKE-UP song
    Please just admit you're wrong
    Which will it be?
    Which will it be?"

    It makes sense considering she just wants him to apologize.

    General CommentFallen Leaves you are a moron.

    Hillary Duff = No drug use.
    Christina Augilera = No drugs
    Lindsey Lohan = Was in about 3 disney movies. Doesn't make her a disney a star, she was a CHILD star.

    Get your fucking pop culture right. Jeez.

    Oh I was browsing Music Choice on ON DEMAND and I saw this video and LOVED it. It's such a great song to play when you're feeling low. Just shout "You're not livin' till you're livin'
    Livin' for me"

    To me the song is about wanting your guy to change but really recognizing that to get him to realize he's missing out, she's got to leave him for a bit. She hopes that he'll feel like he's missing something\ someone in his life. That's why she says It's a potential break up \ make up song. She wants him, and she doesn't want to leave.

    I've been in the position before.

    General CommentHilary Duff = Annorexic
    Christina Augilara = Skank. Ever seen her music video for 'Dirrty'?
    Lindsey Lohan = 3 Disney movies still counts. Besides, she used her role in 'Herbie' to make a song. Herbie was a Disney movie...

    So, yeah, my pop culture is correct. Thanks for trying, though.

    General Commentwell this is just a wild guess but:
    it took to long for her boyfriend to call back, and normally she would just forget that.EXCEPT for the fact it was her birthday! She played along, it rolled right off her back;but obviouly her armor was cracked. What kind of a boyfriend would forget that? The type of guy who doesn't see what he has until she leaves. Without her, he knows he's lost. If he doesn't wise up now, he'll pay the cost. Soon he will know.
    correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what i think the meaning of the song is. lmao
    haha I love this song :]

    General CommentOne part of the lyrics is wrong...
    "This is the potential breakup song
    Please just admit you're wrong
    Which will it be?
    Which will it be?"
    It's supposed to be, "Potential make-up song"
    but i adore this song anyway :]
