Deborah Cox - Sentimental Lyrics

I used to mess around
But I never let it get into me
'Cause I didn't take you serious baby
Now to be without your love
Only makes me realize
What I could've had in you honey

Now that you're gone (oooooooh ooooh ooooh)
I want you more
I said it slapped me in my face
And then my friends don't understand
Because I had the chance
I don't know why

I'm going crazy alone in a daze
And my heart ain't the same
And I don't even think unless I think about you
That's the only time I get sentimental
That's the reason why baby
I can't let go of you
Yeah, that's the only time I get sentimental

I miss you day and night, seems like you're still here
I'd rather be together honey
Now that I'm lost for words
I can't believe I'm on my own
I should've been looking at love

Now that you're gone
I want you (oooh ooh oooh)
I said it slapped me on my face
And now my friends don't understand
Because I had the chance
I don't know why

[Chorus x 2]

Now that you're gone I want you more
I said it slapped me on my face
And then my friends don't understand
Because I had the chance
I don't know why

[Chorus x 2]

  11. cadillacstr8mk

    The last great decade of truly good music was the 90s. The Soul Train awards are on right now and it is so sad listening to these current artists. Song writing is lost and stage presence is horrible.

    So at work I mentioned Deborah Cox, the guy I work with said WHO??? I clutched my pearls, regained consciousness.and realized that the millenials have NO idea how great 90s R&B was. I then asked how old his parents were. They are my age and they didn't introduce him to Deborah Cox. I'm disappointed!!!👀
