Tank - Better For You Lyrics

Imma get this right
If it's the last thing I do, ooh

All she ask for; occasional roses
That romance drug; given in doses
I could hear you, but I didn't listening
I was near you, now you've gone missing
How could I not promise you perfection?
I'm gonna have to answer to my reflection
I'm realising there's way to much on the line ooo

I could be better for you [x8]
I know I ain't close to the man you need me to be
I see
I could be better for you [x4]

She said, don't share what's mine, make me feel special
I wanna feel proud when I stand next to you
Too accessible they think they can grab you
Be respectable or those bitches can have you
How could I not promise you perfection?
I'm gon' have to answer to my reflection
I'm realising there's way to much on the line

I could be better for you [x8]
I know I ain't close to the man you need me to be
I see, oh I see
I could be better for you [x4]

What profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul?
How you gone cheat your main girl but treat a hoe
This might be the illest, realist shit I ever wrote
Trust me, I'm taking over
Cause you deserve affection
You deserve a whole lot more protection
I'm realising there's way to much on the line ooo

I could be better for you [x8]
I know I ain't close to the man you need me to be
I see
I could be better for you [x4]

I can be better for you baby
I know you've heard it all before
I know I saw it all
Give me one more chance oooahh
