"When I Was Down" as written by Curtis Mayfield, Donell Jones and Sheldon A. Goode....
[Chorus:]
When I was down you wasn't there for me
Pushed my love right out the door
At this point I can't take no more
When I was down you wasn't there for me
That's the reason I'm leavin' you
Girl I'm through

My all and my everything
She couldn't do no wrong
Until the cash was gone
And she fronted like she cared for me
But what's the possiblity that she was gettin'
Me for my money

[Chorus:]

No more lies
Baby things done change
I'm not the man I used to be
I gotta look out for me
And after all that we've been through
I can't believe that you would think
That I could love you

Oh!!
Things done change
And my life just ain't the same
And you been tryin'to come back home to me
That ain't gonna happen

[Chorus:]
