Cassie - Excuses Lyrics




Learnin' how to say no
Even when you don't understand why
'Cause it's for me
It's not about you even though I feel you want it to be
Not stuck in a maybe
But sure what I want to say

I gotta care about myself more than I have been
Because I just can't go on being your air
If I can't breathe
I can't be your strength
If I don't take care of me
This is an excuse that is needed
This is an excuse that is needed
Lately I've been feeling greedy
So there you have my reason
This is an excuse that is needed

Let me know do I need a life jacket
You know my tears fall that much?
Baby, I don't want you stranded
If you're not gonna be
Sure about what you say
'Cause baby, it's that way with me
'Cause I don't use my words if I don't know
Exactly what they mean

I gotta care about myself more than I have been
'Cause I just can't go on being your air
If I can't breathe
I can't be your strength
If I don't take care of me
This is an excuse that is needed
This is an excuse that is needed
Lately I've been feeling greedy
So there you have my reason
This is an excuse that is needed
...

  36. QueenUnicorn

    Cassie has always been a fav of mine that was in my peripheral but if she keeps this style up she'll move into clear sight on my playlist. I love this & her voice matured/ got deeper. Very sade old school authentic vibes. Alex was the air that she needed.

  46. Lou Ane

    For you, Diddy:
    Learnin' how to say no
    Even when you don't understand why
    'Cause it's for me
    It's not about you even though I feel you want it to be
    Not stuck in a maybe

    [Chorus]
    I gotta care about myself more than I have been

    I can't be your strength
    If I don't take care of me
    This is an excuse that is needed
    This is an excuse that is needed
    Lately I've been feeling depleted
    So there you have my reason
    This is an excuse that is needed

    [Verse 2]
    Let me know do I need a life jacket
    You know my tears fall that much?
    Baby I don't want you stranded
    If you're not gonna be
    Sure about what you say
    'Cause baby it's that way with me
    'Cause I don't use my words if I don't know

    This is an excuse that is needed

    [Outro]
    This is an excuse that is needed
    Lately I've been feeling depleted
    So there you have my reason
    This is an excuse that is needed

    Tesha

    siwela noko

    Lyric Dolberry hope its not a milli vanilli

  52. Lossy10

    Vocally I knew Cassie could do more with her voice(listen to her song “When your body’s talking”)! Finally she’s doing it! She sounds a bit like Tamia but than softer and smoother ofcourse! Can’t wait for the album!❤️

    Jose Ardila

    Lossy10 wow ! A new album? I’m excited to hear it 🙌🏽 This is a whole vibe !

  53. krista daniels

    I'm loving this!! It says a lot that after leaving Diddy she has a new relationship, baby on the way, new music and a whole new vibe. Seems like Diddy was holding her back. I'm happy for her!

    NADINE CLEOPATRA

    @Nude Ivy so you'd stick with a man for half a decade and say he loved you uuuuumKay bye beloved

    Jesus Beriguete

    Now Diddy was holding her back? This not only disrespectful to him but to her as if her performance only got better because of him more or less. Youre a clown.

    puppy princes

    Exactly. Look at Kim Porter. He cheated and cheated and kept having kids. But then confessed his "love" for her when she passed. She's starting her own lil family now with no baby mama drama.

  54. There she is!!! Go Cassie!

  55. 9 9

    Loving it! ❤️

  56. Litalici0us
