"Told You So" as written by Frankie Storm, Eric Hudson, Jesse Mccartney and Claude Kelly....
Lookin' at ya now I can tell that you and your new relationship ain't goin' well
There's no reason your name should come up on my cell
Unless you're unhappy but that shouldn't be the case cause you said
Said he was the one baby yes you said said you were in love (love)
When you left me u said that you wouldn't be comin' back
Remember that but I never agreed

I hate to say it but I told you so
Told you if you left that you were goin' be miserable
Guess he don't do it like me
Or else you wouldn't be
Runnin' back to the past it was you that left me
I hate to say it but you know I'm right
Every time you're up you're callin' for me late at night
But now that you ain't got me tell me where you goin' be
Cause I can't take you back no my heart wont let me

Girl you know he can't touch like I do
I don't see you trippin' or flippin' over his moves
Don't take a genius to see he ain't that dude
But you let him back you don't know what you was on
When you said said he was the one
Baby yes you said said you were in love
When you left me you said that you wouldn't be
Comin' back remember that but I never agreed

I hate to say it but I told you so
Told you if you left that you were goin' be miserable
Guess he don't do it like me
Or else you wouldn't be
Runnin' back to the past it was you that left me
I hate to say it but you know I'm right
Every time you're up you're callin' for me late at night
But now that you ain't got me tell me where you goin' be
Cause I can't take you back no my heart wont let me

You fell on hard times it seems but you ain't getting no sympathy
No baby not from me cause I told you you should never leave
See you chose this road so you gotta go it alone
Remember I told you so

I hate to say it but I told you so
Told you if you left that you were goin' be miserable
Guess he don't do it like me
Or else you wouldn't be
Runnin' back to the past it was you that left me
I hate to say it but you know I'm right
Every time you're up you're callin' for me late at night
But now that you ain't got me tell me where you goin' be
Cause I can't take you back no my heart wont let me

(I can't take you back no)

    General CommentI've seen this happen to my cousins boyfriend,

    Lookin’ at ya now I can tell,
    That you and your new relationship ain’t goin’ well
    There’s no reason your name should come up on my cell,
    Unless you’re unhappy,
    But that shouldn’t be the case cause you said,
    Said he was the one
    Baby yes you said,
    Said you were in love
    When you left me, you said that you wouldn’t be comin’ back
    Remember that, but I never agree

    - - She kept calling her ex boyfriend because her new relationship wasn't going so well, so she's always telling her troubles to her ex. She finds that she wants her ex back but he doesn't want to go back.

    My cousins boyfriend new that she wouldn't be happy with him, but he let her go because he couldn't stop her.

    So sad!!

    General CommentA girl broke up with her ex-boyfriend in order to be with someone else, who she said she loved - but he knew she would want him back. Now she's calling her ex, asking him to get back together but he's turning her down... 'I hate to say it but I told you so...' Fairly self explanatory lyrics. Beautiful ballad.

    General Commentthis is my fav off departure..the song writers did an AMAZING job on this song!!
    it's basically saying that he told her that she could never be happy with someone else but he let her go anyway cauze she wanted to, and she didnt believe him...now she gets what he was saying, and she tries to get him back, but he turns her down because he doesnt wanna risk losing her again,but he has the last say by saying "i hate to say it but i told you so told you if you left that you were gonna be miserable..."
