Whenever U're ready

I keep ur picture beside my bed
I still remember everything U said, mmm
I always thought our love was so right, I guess I was wrong
Ooh
I always thought U'd b by my side, 2night U're gone
All I wanna know, baby, if what we had was good
How come U don't call me anymore, yeah?

Let me tell U somethin', listen
I still like a fire on a rainy night
I still like it better when U're holding me tight
U know what?
Everybody said we should never part, baby
That's what they told me, about how we looked cute 2gether
Tell me, mama, why'd U have 2 go and break my heart, yeah?
Listen 2 me
All I wanna know, baby, if what we had was good
Why don't U never call me anymore?
Oh no no, I can't stand it, no, girl

See, sometimes it feels like I'm gonna die
U don't call me, girl
Honey, U got 2 try
I'm down on my knees beggin' U please, please
Please call me, girl, sometime
Oh
All I wanna know, baby, if it was good b4
Why don't U, don't call me, don't call me anymore?
How come U don't call me, baby, anymore?

Sometimes it feels like I'm gonna die!
U don't call me, baby!
Honey, got 2 try
Down on my knees beggin' U please
It's just 1 lousy dime, baby
Why don't U call me sometime?
Why can't U just pick up the phone?
I can't stand bein' alone
Why must U torture me, why must U torture me?
Oh, why must U treat me like a...
Why must U treat me like a shit?
Kill me, why don't U, baby?
Can't hurt half as much as this, babe
I can't stand bein' alone, no no no
I can't stand bein' alone, no no no
Yeah
No, why must U...

I still keep ur picture, I keep it by my bed
I still remember everything little thing U said
Let me tell ya
All I wanna know, baby, if what we had was good
How come U don't call me anymore?
Why don't U call me?
Why don't U call me, yeah?
Just call up 2 see how I'm doin', baby
Sometime
