Levert, Gerald - Taking Everything Lyrics

Never thought you bring me so much pain
Lord knows I tried to keep you happy girl
in ever way
out on the road doing my thang trying to
keep you laced
trying to keep a smile upon your face girl
was all my happiness in vain
or did I place in you a little too much faith
now nothing but memories
never though that this would be the price I
had to pay

You took my heart you took my car you took
my crib
got the nerves to take my kids
got the nerves to take my kids
you took my love and my life
girl you took my soul
taking everything from me
taking everything from me
you took my heart girl you took my car
and you took my crib trying to take my kids
girl you took my love than you took my soul
taking everything everything everything
everything everything

And now I'm sitting all alone
trying to figure out where you and I went
you know it makes me wanna cry
just thinking about it makes me wanna lay
down and die
for the life of me I don't know how
that you could take for granted and disregard
our sacred vows
now nothing but memories
never though that this would be the price I
had to pay

You took my heat girl you took my cars
trying to take my crib
got the nerve to take my kids
got the nerve to take my kids
and take my love an my life
girl you took my soul
you've taking everything from me
taking everything from me
you took my heart my pride
my crib my kids my love my soul
everything everything everything
everything everything everything

Now I ain't never been no fool
I've always tried to keep my cool
I was faithful to you never abuse you or
use you
even though sometimes you make me want to
but I love you
you should try to understand girl that I
was your man
my life was in your hands baby was shinning
over everything
now you're gone and I'm just gonna be a
weekend Daddy baby
can I call you baby or is that just a passing

    Child Support: A Moral Mess!

    Written By: Kelli Owens

    Isn't it funny (NOT), when a parent is ordered to pay child support, they rant, rave and protest? All of a sudden the child is somehow an inconvenience. It's as if the child asked to be born, but we all know that on the heat of passion, in the heat of the moment, we have sometimes lost all self-control, throwing caution (and precautions), to the wind. Our thinking is of carnal pleasure, but we never consider the consequences of our actions. Please, don't get me wrong, I am not saying our children are consequential, but when it comes to child support, it seems as though they are the ones being blamed and punished. We have resorted to being comfortable saying, "babies momma or babies daddy" instead of my husband or wife. Our children are gifts from God. We must do right by them. Child support does not take the place of a parent physically being in their child/children lives. I'm sure children would gladly trade monetary support for quality time spent with the absent parent. When a parent walks away, they sacrifice more than they know. The absentee parent misses out on the celebration of their child/children success and aren't there to comfort them in their failure. When children grow up in a single parent household, they sometimes internalize that they're the reason the parent left and isn't there. Growing up in a single parent household has many effects on a child. If a girl grows up without a father, she has no idea what qualities she should look for or avoid in a mate. A son does not get the male bonding. If the mother is absent, the son misses out on the nurturing that only a mother can give and girlsiss out on a role model. As hard as single parents try, they cannot teach their children what the missing parent can. Nothing and no one is perfect, all I am saying is, in the moment of passion, think about how your life can be changed. Are you ready? Is the person you're laying down with, even parent material? Are they mentally stable? Hell, nowadays, you have to do a background search, credit history, psych evaluation and criminal history. Remember, what looks good to you, may NOT be good for you!
