This is a drag that it's too late now
And I wanted to tell you that I was wrong
I didn't realize I still hold on to you
But I still do

Was it that I turned everyone against you?
Was it that I didn't defend you?
Was it that I never had your back?
Was it that I was always trying to save you
And you never wanted me to?
Or was it that I loved you?

You don't seem to see me sinking in, do you?
You're not content in your own head, are you?
You just want to kick me once again, don't you?
Don't you baby?
I did it again

I don't stop paying
You don't look so good to me my friend
Is it because of me I really left this time
Did you ever say goodbye?

Was it that I had a crush on your friend?
Was it that I left for another man?
Was it that I didn't know
That you were in over your head?
And I didn't see what I had, did I?
No, I didn't an uh

You don't seem to see me sinking in, do you?
You're not content in your own head, are you?
You just want to kick me once again, don't you?
Don't you baby?
I did it again

Was it that everyone would just kiss my ass?
I couldn't see through it and you could?
And now look what's come of us
Here ten years later
I jump from one to the other,
You're still worrying your mother
And I almost went under, baby

You don't seem to see me sinking in, do you?
You're not content in your own head, are you?
You just want to kick me once again, don't you?
Don't you baby?
I did it again

You don't seem to see me sinking in, do you?
You're not content in your own head, are you?
You just want to kick me once again, don't you?
Don't you baby?
I did it again

    Definitely about one of her ex-husbands. She's talking about how she was very in love with him. I wonder who it is who is "still worrying your mother" :/

    This song is about Danny, her first husband.

    Taking what we know from Lisa's own words since Michael Jackson died, it is likely about him. She tried to save him, and defensed him. Also, she did leave Danny for another man..so that wouldn't fit. Furthermore...we know Michael kept worrying his mother and Lisa was in contact with the family, so she knew this. Ten years form 2003 is 1993... When she started dating Michael (she accompanied him to the Carter fundraiser in Atlanta, for example). So..that's my take based on the best evidence out there.
