I forgot to call you on your birthday,
You swear you’re the last thing on my mind
There is nothing I can do to fix it
[all you ever asked me for was time]

When the lights don’t glow the same way that they used to,
& I finally get a moment to myself
I will realize you were everything I wanted
& you’ll tell me you’re in love with someone else

So can you do me favor
If I pull it together
Make it sooner than later
We won’t be here forever
& I realized I waited too long
But please don’t move on
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
Oh, you don’t need no one else

You just changed your hair & it looks perfect,
I wish I was the first to let you know
Every chance I get to make it better
I just find a way to let it go

When the lights don’t glow the same way that they used to,
& I finally get a moment to myself
I will realize you were everything I wanted
& you’ll tell me you’re in love with someone else

So can you do me favor
If I pull it together
Make it sooner than later
We won’t be here forever
& I realized I waited too long
But please don’t move on
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
Oh, you don’t need no one else

The girl or the world?
You see someone’s gotta lose
I thought I could have it all
Do I really gotta choose
What good is all the cash
If it doesn’t buy time
& what good is being famous
If I’m never on your mind

Nights fallin’
Lights glowin’
& I’m just tryin to pay the price on
& I don’t wanna feel the comfort from my ice showin
& I ain’t tryin to be without you at the right moments
Nigga nice goin
Is it worth it, that decision?
Cuz hearts breakin, I ain’t tryin to be in that collision
So I’m gonna dust my shirt,
And dust my pants
Cuz I better look good girl if this is my chance,
I swear

So can you do me favor
If I pull it together
Make it sooner than later
We won’t be here forever
& I realized I waited too long
But please don’t move on
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
Oh, you don’t need no one else

    General CommentI absolutey love this song. I was so much in love with this guy and he was head over heels for me than without notice and everything was perfect he broke up with me and I started to date another guy and a few weeks later his friend comes up to me and says to listen to this song and I did. It was perfect because I just got my hair cut too! I got bangs and I cried to it. I dated the other guy for a little over a yer and he was physically and mentally abusive so I left him and am back with my other man that told me to listen to this song and I absolutely love it we were meant to be! " if you love something set it free, if it comes back it's yours to keep, if it doesn't than it was never yours at all" that's exactly what he did.
