Ooh...

How did it come 2 this?
U livin' n ur world and me dyin' n mine
Lord knows I don't deserve this
I never gave U any reason 2 treat me unkind
Each day that goes by I grow lonelier
Sadder than the day b4
I'd give anything just 2 hold U n my arms
Or see U standin' at my door

Cuz darlin', U mean more than words could explain
Ooh darlin', the pain, it cuts so deep

And it's only a matter of time
B4 I go right out of my mind
I don't care who was wrong
I only know that when U're gone
I think about U every day
Why'd U have 2 go away and leave me all alone?
Won't U please come home, baby?
Come home

Why did we ever part?
U were my lover and I was ur friend
How did this argument start?
Couldn't we just kiss and start over again?
Whoever said all good things soon come 2 an end
Never had anybody like U
Ooh, there's a pounding n the pit of my heart
Whenever I think of what we used 2 do (Ooh, the things we use 2 do)

Cuz U mean more than words could explain
Darlin', darlin', the pain, it cuts so deep

But it's only a matter of time
B4 I go out of my mind (B4 I go right out of my mind)
I don't care, I don't care who's wrong (I don't care who was wrong)
I only know that when U're gone
I think about U every day
Why'd U have 2 go away and leave me all alone?
Won't U please come home, baby?
I can't take it no more
C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon, baby

Ooh
Looka here, I got somethin' I wanna say
U know, baby, I never treated U bad
U know I was the best U ever had
I know it's just a matter of time
B4 I go right out of my mind, oh baby!
Please come home
Please
Please come home

It's just a matter of time b4 I go right out of my mind
I don't care who was wrong, baby
All I know, all I know is that when U're gone, huh, I say when U're gone
I think about it every day any ole kind of way
Why'd U leave me, why'd U leave me, why'd U go away, baby?
Baby, won't U come home?
C'mon, come on home
Help me c'mon, come on home
Somebody help me c'mon, come on home, uh...
Whoo...
