YOU HAD ME

by Joss Stone

You had me
You lost me
You’re wasted
You cost me
I don’t want you here messing with my mind

Spitting in my eyes and I still see
Tried to keep me down
I’m breaking free
I don’t want no part in your next fix
Someone needs to tell you
This is it

Hey
Listen you’ll be missin’
Out on all my love and my kissing
Make your mistakes on your own time
When you come down you’re just no good to have around
Instead of making money you took mine

Chorus
You had me
You lost me
You’re wasted
You cost me
I don’t want you here messing with my mind
I’ve realized in time
that my eyes are not blind
I’ve seen it before
I’m taking back my life

You tried to trade on my naivete
But the things you do and say embarrass me
See once upon a time I was your fool
But the one I leave behind he is you

Hey
Listen you’ll be missin’
Out on all my love and my kissing
Make your mistakes on your own time
When you come down you’re just no good to have around
Instead of making money you took mine

Chorus

Vodka and a packet of cigarettes
That’s all it used to be but now
You’re sniffing on snow when you’re feeling low
Suffocating dreams that could have
Maybe for a minute I’d be down with that
But it didn’t take long for me to see the light
You swore you had control of it
But when I stepped back you slipped on your supply

Chorus

Taking it back I’m taking it back
Taking back my life
Taking it back I’m taking it back
Taking back my life
Ain’t nobody got no business stressing all the time
Taking it back I’m taking it back
Taking back my life

Chorus

Taking it back I’m taking it back
Taking back my life
Taking it back I’m taking it back
Taking back my life
Ain’t nobody got no business stressing all the time
Taking it back I’m taking it back
Taking back my life



Chris Brown Feat. T-Pain – Kiss Kiss By David Sides

I can stare at him for the whole¬†time and imagine how he touches and tickles¬†the piano smoothly! Woo… Can you play the piano like he does?

Justin Timberlake – What goes around
