Yeah
Why U screamin'? U know I'm not a man of war, uh
Break the gold chain that I gave U, throw it down on the floor
Instead of this 7-page letter, I wish I had peace of mind
Friends tell me, "U should go get her" (Friends say...)
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time
Oh yes it is, a waste of time, oh
Look at me

I need 2 get out of this city
I need 2 get U outta my head, baby
I need 2 get away from the words that U said 2 me
Why U screamin'? Yeah, U know I'm not a man of war
What makes U think that I could put somethin'
Inside of someone that I put inside U?
Even if I tried 2, if I tried 2, oh
Cuz I still smell like the last time that we... ooh
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time
Oh, it's a waste of time
Sho'nuff lookin' out (Look out)

Wanted, I need 2 feel wanted again
I need 2 feel love is alive, oh
I need 2 hear U say that U ain't lookin' 4 another reason 2 make me cry
Why U screamin'? Oh Lord, U know I'm not a man of war (Why?)
I've been tryin' 2 make U happy, baby, ever since we were sophomores
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time, oh yes it is
Yes it is a waste of time, oh Lord
Ooh

If there is no future then there is no past
All we've got is right now 2 make it last
Why U screamin'?
Can we make it last? (Ooh)
U know I'm not a man of war, baby (Break it)
Break the gold chain that I gave U, throw it down on the floor, baby
Instead of this 7-page letter, I wish I had peace of mind, oh
Friends tell me, "U should go get her" (That's what they tell me)
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time
Oh...

I need 2 get out of this city
I need 2 get U outta my head, I need 2
How did Lenny say? "I gotta get away, I gotta get away"
Away from the words U said 2 me
Tryin' 2 take away my dignity
Peace of mind where I should b
Instead of this 7-page letter, see?
If U wanna serve me a plate of blues
I won't buy U no more shoes
Donatella lace U n dresses still
I gets no love but I pay the bill
I will, I will love
I will pay the bills
100,000 dollars and some change

I've been tryin' 2 make U happy, baby
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time, baby (Why U screamin'?)
Ooh, U know I'm not a man of war
Break the gold chain that I gave U, throw it down on the floor
On the floor, instead of...
Instead of this 7-page letter, I wish I had peace of mind
Oh, my friends tell me, "U should go get her"
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U a waste, a waste of time
Oh baby, ooh
U know I'm not a man of war
