Jazmine Sullivan - My Career Lyrics

My man just told me he’s leaving,
He swears to God that I’m creeping
I know it looks like I’m cheating
Cause he ain’t no fool

He’s tired of being alone
He says that I’m never at home
I won’t pretend I ain’t dead wrong
But it ain’t room for 2

So if you think that you gotta leave
I won’t shed a tear
Cause it ain’t a man that means more
Than my career

He said, if it’s a man just let him know
And that I must’ve met him after a show
The two of us work at the studio,
Cause you’re always there

I said it ain’t a man you should worry about
I don’t believe in him going out
But I am starting to have my doubts
And I know it ain’t fair

If you think that you gotta leave
I won’t shed a tear
Cause it ain’t a man that means more
Than my career, oh

Now that it’s out on the table
You’ll let me know if you’re able
Will probably never be stable,
This is good as it gets

So now you don’t have to wonder
You know that there is another
We might as well call him my lover
And it is what it is

And if you think that you wanna leave
I won’t shed a tear
Cause right now ain’t a man that means more
Than my career, oh

So make up your mind, cause I made up mine
If you can endure being second in life then we’re cool
But if you don’t, then you know what to do

So make up your mind, cause I made up mine
If you can handle being second in life then we’re cool
And if you don’t, then you know what to do, uh

So if you think that you gotta leave
I won’t shed a tear
Cause sorry baby you don’t mean more
Than my career, oh no.
