Whenever U'r ready

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

Let me tell U somethin', listen
still like a fire on a rainy night
still like it better when U'r 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, Y'd U have 2 go & break my heart, yeah?
Listen 2 me
All wanna know, baby, if what we had was good
Y don't U never call me anymore?
Oh no no, can't stand it, no, girl

C, sometimes it feels like 'm gonna die
U don't call me, girl
Honey, U got 2 try

Please call me, girl, sometime
Oh
All wanna know, baby, if it was good b4

How come U don't call me, baby, anymore?

Sometimes it feels like 'm gonna die!

Honey, got 2 try
Down on my knees beggin' U please
It's just 1 lousy dime, baby
