ARETHA FRANKLIN

ARETHA FRANKLIN - WILLING TO FORGIVE

rate me

I read her letters

And I saw her picture

And I smelled her cheap perfume, hmm

It must have come from you

How could you touch her

Lay down beside her

Well, there just ain't no excuse

You shouldn't have been so loose

I saw the telephone bill

You must be out of your mind

If you think you can smooth it over

Then you're wasting your time

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget

'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time

And I guess I can go on although I must admit

I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

You're such a liar

You took her and her children

Out for the afternoon

While I was sittin' waitin' on you

How could you do it

You should've been here with me

You just couldn't do it

You had to be in the streets, uh

Well, I heard through the grapevine

You've been messin' around

When you thought you were gettin' over

That's when my baby I found, oh...

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget

'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time (You really hurt me)

And I guess I can go on although I must admit

I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

I gave my heart, gave my time

Gave my soul 'cause love was blind

I can't explain this poor excuse

Of a man of a boy who was born to lose

I paid the rent, washed your clothes

Cooked your food and I only God knows

Only God knows why I stay with you

I guess (Guess I) I'm in love

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget

(Oh, baby, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love)

'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time

(Ooh, you really hurt me this time, baby)

And I guess I can go on although I must admit (Although I must admit)

I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

(I'm gonna mess around some time)

I gave my heart, gave my time

Gave my soul 'cause love was blind

I can't explain this poor excuse

Of a man of a boy who was born to lose

I paid the rent, I washed your clothes

Cooked your food and I only God knows

Only God knows why I stay with you

I guess (Guess I) I'm in love

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget

'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time

(Ooh, oh, baby, you hurt me, you hurt me)

And I guess I can go on although I must admit

I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget

(I'm willin', I'm willin' and able)

'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time
