"If You Leave (feat. Mary J. Blige)" as written by Johnnie Smith, Ivan Barias, Carvin Haggins, Taalib Johnson, John Lawson and Miguel Pimentel....
You think
I'm so full of it, full of it
But I think I'm just fed up baby
You think I can be so arrogant, Arrogant
But I'm just tryin' to get keep my head up Baby
You think I procrastinate baby
But I think I'm taking my time
You think you need to leave
But I think I disagree but

If you believe you'll do best without me
I'll let it go girl, Its over
But before we say good bye
Lets give it a try
If you leave, then baby I'll leave
I'll let it go girl, Its over
But I have no doubt
We can work it out

Yeah
I think your so full of it, full of it
You just don't know when to let up Baby
I think you're so arrogant, arrogant
That you think you're so much better baby
That I think It ain't healthy for me to judge you by your flaws and that's why I
Know I could criticize, but I put that aside
To focus on you and I

But If you believe you'll do best without me
Then Ill let it go boy, Its over
But before we say goodbye
Lets give it a try
If you leave, then baby I'll leave
I'll let it go boy, its over
But I have no doubt
We can work it out
Yeah

Now if you wanna go
Baby then Ill let you go
And even though I'm tryin' to hold on
I cant if you don't

Now if you leave me, you're gonna miss me
And I'm not saying that I'll be here waiting

Since we here right now (instead of just walking out)
Lets work to reach the point that I know we can be

If you believe you'll do best without me
I'll let it go girl, Its over
But before we say good bye
Lets give it a try
If you leave, then baby I'll leave
I'll let it go girl, Its over
But I have no doubt
We can work it out

If you believe, you'll do best without me
I'll let it go girl, its over
Before we say goodbye
Lets give it a try
If you leave, then baby I'll leave

    General Commenta very upsetting song. a real life situation that happens over and over.


    its a relationship gone wrong. fighting and having differences. one wants to leave, one needs to leave. the other wants to try and work it out. putting aside how much you wanna keep them in your life, if it benefits the other in life.. you're willing to let them go.

    General Comment"I think it ain't HEALTHY for me to judge you by your flaws...."
    I love this song.
    So much heartbreak, but so much honesty and truthfulness as well.
