"Radio" as written by Rodney Roy Jerkins, Theron Makiel Thomas and Timothy Jamahli Thomas....
[Chorus:]

Driving in my car
Listening to the radio
Baby when things got hard
You just let love go
I see the sunshine in the sky
Feel the rainfall down on my face
But it doesn't mean a thing
When we don't sing the same melody
As I listen to the radio


[Verse 1:]

Top down Volume up
And it's way past 10
I'm in the traffic reminiscing
About way back when
We used to live check to check
Everyday we was so broke
The only thing we had between us
Was our love and some hope
I was the man that made you laugh
And that cat the made you cry
You were the star that had my back
And the dime on my side
You never ever tried to change me
You'd just let me be me
Never got on me bout my business
You just let me be free
Gave me the space so I could breathe
Took care of my every need
In return I gave you everything
And made you my queen
We had the strongest of ties
Nothing could ever separate us
Took vows before God
And Honey Mooned out in Vegas
And You stood by me when the fam died
And held me close
But I guess nothing is forever
Now you want to let go
And I don't understand it
Fact I can barely believe it
I keep it pushing through the traffic
Still don't know why your leaving


[Chorus:]

Driving in my car
Listening to the radio
Baby when things got hard
You just let love go
I see the sunshine in the sky
Feel the rainfall down on my face
But it doesn't mean a thing
When we don't sing the same melody
As I listen to the radio

[Verse 2:]

I think I at least deserve and explanation
Why your leaving
I could see if I was cheating
But that can't be the reason
I'm not believing how it changed
We was happy with nothing
Now we unhappy with something
Baby what happened to the loving
Miss the kissing and hugging
Wannna play with my kids
I'm on the road making this money
Trying to handle our biz
I put the fam first and foremost
Only second to God
Now you packing up and leaving
Said the distance is hard
But any woman in they right mind
Would love this man
I went out of my way
And held it down for the fam
I only wish you could just take a minute
Notice the way that we did it
While most just talk it we done lived it
How can you forget it
And I'mma spit it till my lungs collapse
I know the truth is that it's over
And you ain't coming back
So let me put this on record
I wrote these licks from my soul
I know that nothing lasts forever
But it's sad to see you go


[Chorus:]

Driving in my car
Listening to the radio
Baby when things got hard
You just let love go
I see the sunshine in the sky
Feel the rainfall down on my face
But it doesn't mean a thing
When we don't sing the same melody
As I listen to the radio

[Verse 3:]

There's an old expression
If you love them let them go
If they come back its true love
But you can never be sure
So I'mma man up and stand up
I guess I got to let her leave
I mean it's hard on my heart
To watch her walk away from me
I know we had some bad times
But I never would have expected
The money would come along
And leave us stressed out and tested
And I invested every piece of me
In someone that believed in me
And now she leaving me
I guess it wasn't meant to be
And I'd be lying if I said it didn't hurt
But I'm a man I chalk it up
And I'mma take it for what it's worth
She pushed me to get it
And when I got it she left me
So I'mma give it to my kids
And keep on riding this Bentley
And evidently she confused
Thought the money d make her happy
But the money made us changed
And it effected us badly
I would have gladly quit it all
If she just would have asked me
And gave up the music
To make it right with my family


[Chorus:]

Driving in my car
Listening to the radio
Baby when things got hard
You just let love go
I see the sunshine in the sky
Feel the rainfall down on my face
But it doesn't mean a thing
When we don't sing the same melody
As I listen to the radio
