"Takin' Back My Love" as written by Enrique Iglesias, Frankie Storm and Nadir Khayat....
Go ahead just leave, can't hold you, you're free
You take all these things, if they mean so much to you
I gave you your dreams, 'cause you meant the world
So did I deserve to be left here hurt?

You think I don't know you're out of control
I ended up finding all of this from my boys
Girl, you're stone cold, you say it ain't so
You already know I'm not attached to material

I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love
My love

Yeah, what did I do but give love to you?
I'm just confused as I stand here and look at you
From head to feet, all that's not me
Go 'head, keep the keys, that's not what I need from you

You think that you know
(I do)
You've made yourself cold
(Oh yeah)
How could you believe them over me, I'm your girl

You're out of control
(So what?)
How could you let go?
(Oh yeah)
Don't you know I'm not attached to material?

I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love

I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love

So all this love I give you, take it away
(Uh, uh huh)
You think material's the reason I came
(Uh, uh huh)

If I had nothing would you want me to stay
(Uh, uh huh)
You keep your money, take it all away

I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love

I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love

I'd give it all up but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love
I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love
I'm takin' back my love, my love, my love, my love

Ooh, my love
(I'm taking back my love)
Ooh, my love

    General CommentBasically to me I think that Enrique is the spoiled rich kid and he thinks that Ciara is only with him for his material things. For Ciara she is the one who is confused and loves him for who he is not his stuff, but he doesn't understand so she is gonna leave.

    General Commentpretty obvious.
    the guy trusted his friends more than his gf. he wants to quit from the relationship.

    but his gf claimed that she ain't what they said.
    but she's gonna leave him after that.

    i like the way the song have 2 vox that argues in a song. :)

    Song Meaningi think this song s related to Anna Kournikova !
    cause after all these years and all these thing he s done for her , but she still got alot of excuses for rejecting marriage Request cause maybe she think he wants her for her money ... !

    look at this part :
    "So all this love I give you, take it away
    You think material's the reason I came,
    If I had nothing would you want me to stay
    You keep your money, take it all away "

    although they r together now and at least ... lol

    General CommentEnrique:

    "Go 'head just leave, can't hold you, you're free," - Obviously meaning he is annoyed and not caring anymore if she leaves or not, because he believes she is in the wrong and can go if she pleases.

    "You take all these things, if they mean so much to you." - He thinks she only cares about him being rich, therefore he says "Take them if they mean so much to you". He says just take it if that's all you care about.

    "I gave you your dreams, 'cause you meant the world, so did I deserve to be left here hurt?" - He gave her everything; himself, practically his money, and everything he possessed because she was everything to him. The next line has to do with the next verse.

    "You think I don't know you're out of control, I ended up finding all of this out from my boys," - His "boys" told him that all she cares about is his money, which isn't true.

    "Girl, you're stone cold, you say it ain't so, You already know I'm not attached to material." - His love doesn't come with the money unless he's willing to be, which he was.

    "I'd give it all up, but I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love, I'm takin' back my love, I've given you too much but I'm takin' back my love...." - He'd give it all up for her, he's taking back his love for her, and he's given her too much already.

    Ciara:

    "Yeah, What did I do but give love to you. I'm just confused as I stand here and look at you. From head to feet, all that's not me," - She's saying she's innocent, and she loves him for who he is. She's confused, and "from head to feet" she is not that kind of person.

    "Go 'head, keep the keys, that's not what I need from you. You think that you know, you've made yourself cold." - She doesn't need his accusations, he thinks that he knows who she is, but he doesn't.

    "How could you believe them over me, I'm your girl, You're out of control, how could you let go," - She's saying how can he believe the crap they're spouting about her, and she's wondering how he could let go of their relationship over that.

    "Don't you know I'm not attached to material." - She doesn't care about him being rich.

    (Chorus x2 Both) - Except this time it means she'd give it all up to be with him again, and she's given him too much love if that's what he thinks.

    Enrique:
    So all this love I give you, take it away, - He doesn't care if she takes his "love" (money)

    Ciara:
    You think material's the reason I came, - She knows he thinks that the only reason she loves him is for the money.

    Enrique:
    If I had nothing would you want me to stay, - If he was poor, would she still want to be with him?

    Ciara:
    You keep your money, take it all away - Stating she doesn't care, and he can keep his money.

    (Chorus X3 Both)

    General Commenti think the version with Sarah Connor is much better than this
    Sarah's voice is much stronger than Ciara's haha
