Mmh that it's all for the best?
Of course it is

I (I) was so wrong (wrong) for so long (long)
Only tryin' to please myself (myself)
Girl, I (I) was caught up (up) in her lust (lust)
When I don't really want no one else
So, no I know I should of treated you better
But me and you were meant to last forever

So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
To really be your man
'Cause when the roof cave in and the truth came out
I just didn't know what to do
But when I become a star we'll be living so large
I'll do anything for you
So tell me girl

Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say (whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

How (how), could I live (live) with myself (self)
Knowing that I let our love go (love go)
And ooh (ooh), when I do (do) with one chance (chance)
I just gotta let you know
I know what I did wasn't clever
But me and you we're meant to be together

So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
To really be your man
'Cause when the roof cave in and the truth came out
I just didn't know what to do
But when I become a star we'll be living so large
I'll do anything for you
So tell me girl

Mmh whatcha say

Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I really need you in my life
'Cause things ain't right, girl
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I don't want you to leave me
Though you caught me cheatin'

I really need you in my life
'Cause things ain't right

'Cause when the roof caved in and the truth came out

But when I become a star we'll be living so large
I'll do anything for you
So baby watcha say

Mmh whatcha say
Mmh that you only meant well?

Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)

    General CommentI just wish that on iTunes it would say "ft. Imogen Heap". Which it doesn't. So all these ignorant people are like "OH MY GOSH HE'S SO GOOD." when it's like, no hunny, Imogen Heap is what makes this song.

    When I hear that all I can think of is that it's sarcasm. That she really doesn't believe that he meant well when he cheated on her. Just my thought.

    Love that clip of Hide and Seek anyways. Totally makes the song.

    General CommentAre you serious! Well, I'm one to talk..let me re-explain this..

    "So, no I know I should've treated you better
    But me and you were meant to last forever"
    -so according to jason he DID know that she deserves beter but BECAUSE we were suppose to last forever it's fine to cheat. seems sensible ya?

    "So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
    To really be your man
    Cause when the roof caved in and the truth came out
    I just didn't know what to do
    But when I become a star we'll be living so large
    I'll do anything for you (for you)
    So tell me girl"
    - so its fine to cheat because he's gonna be a star and THEN he will do anything for her. (but not now)

    watcha say watch say watcha say...ya i dont understand either..

    "How, could I live with myself
    Knowing that I let our love go (love go)
    And ooh, when I do with one chance
    I just gotta let you know
    I know what I did wasn't clever
    But me and you were meant to be together"
    -And back to not being clever but we need to be together.

    "Girl, tell me whatcha said (said) (said)
    I don't want you to leave me
    Though you caught me cheatin'
    Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said) (said)
    I really need you in my life
    Cause things ain't right, girl
    Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said) (said)
    I don't want you to leave me
    Though you caught me cheatin'
    Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said) (said)
    I really need you in my life
    Cause things ain't right"
    -I think things aren't right BECAUSE of what he did, and from that im just gonnna forgive him because i pity that things aren't as swell as they were because he was cheating on me.


    in conclusion -highland- was 100% correct here

    General CommentThis song is quite stupid, honestly. He's saying he cheated on her, but he'll be "living so large" that she should forgive him? So just because he's going to be famous, it's okay to cheat on her?

    That is a stupid reason, honestly. Nothing makes cheating right.

    General CommentHilarious lyrics. So let me get this straight, you cheated on her and now you want her back because some day you will be a star? Lol. Insanely bad, and just another tune that adds to the deconstruction of Hip Hop, thank you Jason Derulo.

    General CommentTotally ruined Imogen Heap's song. Took a completely beautiful song about the tragedy of the Holocaust and turned it into this rap, cheating bullshit. Unbelievable.

    MemoryNo girl should have to let a guy back in her life after he's cheated on her, especially 'when he only meant well'.

    This song reminds me of me and my ex boyfriend (yet another story)

    I'd been with my ex for over a year, and I ended up catching him cheating on me, like walking in on, and they'd been together for apparently nearly 2 weeks. This would have normally ended with me leaving him, being angry for ages, and not talking to him again but I was 4 months pregnant with his child when this happened.

    For me, I felt like my heart had been broken, my baby's father had been seeing another girl. Like no girl deserves to feel like that.

    Not only that, this girl was really shocked to see me, like she had no idea why me, a pregnant girl was getting angry at my ex, turns out he never told this girl he was in a relationship, and that his partner was also pregnant. She's not seeing him anymore either, I could even see by her face she was horrified at him.

    His reason for cheating, he was thinking about himself, and what he wanted, I was pregnant and sex wasn't a priority to me.

    He then tried to get back with me, saying it was for the best, he wouldn't do it again, I was the only one for him, he just needed it.

    Needless to say I am no longer with him, I didn't deserve to go through what I did, and no one else does.

    I'm now 8 months along, and am looking forward to seeing my baby daughter for the first time, she is the only thing I don't regret from that relationship.
