After 7 - How Could You Leave Lyrics



I guess I figured out
That something was wrong
And that things have changed
Cause girl I sit by the phone
And I wait for your call
But the phone never rings
So I picked up the phone and
called you at home
You're on the other line,
I wanna talk to you maybe
Even see you, you say you have no time
You started doing things that
You never did before, how could
Something so right turn out to be
Something so wrong

You thought the grass was greener
You thought the well had water
You thought that you could find a
Love another place
So how could you leave this good thing

We use to take long walks
And have long, long talks
On the telephone
You use to hold my hand in the
Shopping mall, I felt I was your own,
We stopped going out as much
I started feeling all alone
Girl you stopped telling me you loved me
Saying that you cared
But I still carried on
I thought we could work things out
But I just don't understand why
How could you leave someone patient
Like me for something so wrong

You thought the grass was greener
You thought the well had water
You thought that you could find a
Love another place
So how could you leave this good thing

Even though you, broke my heart in two
I was just hanging on, trying to do what
Was right and you were already gone

You thought the grass was greener
You thought the well had water
You thought that you could find a
Love another place
So how could you leave this good thing

When love came you went away
And if I see you again
Girl I would ask you how could you
Leave this good thing

  13. Petrus Nakalemo

    When my varsity girlfriend left me in 2015 I played this song everyday thinking about how she just walked out on me after all i have been through for her. I ran all different thoughts until 6 July 2016. Time really heals. You might not get the answers to questions you seek, but if you trust time and let go of what you can't change you will find yourself in a place way better than you thought.

  73. winkie1234

    If you support those artist buying their stuff, the record execs. will continue to give us bullshit. If you watch the videos BET gives you, then you support that bullshit. Sorry but we cant support this current crop of idiots and hacks and expect for good music to just happen. Sorry but cant have your TI's T.Pains, Lil Wayne,and have Luther's, Whitney's,After 7's just dosent work that way.
