Vivian Green - Gotta Go, Gotta Leave Lyrics

Couldn’t have given you more.
I tried to love you like you loved me.
Maybe for wrong reasons....maybe.
At first it was beautiful.
Every girl has a fairytale.
But then you wake up and see
it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
It turned into screaming days and solo nights.
Just wasn’t right (yeah...)
I didn’t really wanna see you,
was happy when you were leaving yeah...
I liked how it felt when I was by myself.
And that’s the way I wanna be,
So please, don’t beg and plead,
Just let it be.
Just let it be...


I gotta go. I gotta leave.
So please don’t make it hard for me.
I’ve gave enough, I’m tired of love,
I gotta let it go... [2x]

Couldn’t have given you more,
Gave you everything.
There wasn’t anything that you were denied (yeah).
But you should never give it all...
‘cause sometimes there’s nothing left
but bitterness and regret,
and it just ain’t worth it.

‘Cause then there’s the sudden change
Out of nowhere, it seems.
Never know I could be so mean,
But that’s just how far you pushed me (yeah).

You say it just isn’t fair
and you didn’t know.
You need to take responsibility for your own,
‘cause you’re grown.
And you known (yeah)


I gotta go. I gotta leave.
So please don’t make it hard for me.
I’ve gave enough, I’m tired of love,
I gotta let it go... [2x]

Now I take the blame
for trying to stay and work it out.
Shoulda left before it got complicated,
Shoulda left when there was still some happiness.

Yes I take the blame
for having faith in the relationship.
I thought it made me complete,
but the truth is,
I’m complete without it.

(Gotta Let Go-ooo-ooo-oo)


I gotta go. I gotta leave.
So please don’t make it hard for me.
I’ve gave enough, I’m tired of love,
I gotta let it go... [2x]

  72. msred honey

    you better leave it only gets more down

  73. Queen_Of_Domination

    I swear I used to play this shit backwards and forwards when this song first came out. I was breaking up with my ex-husband. I felt the words. He was grown, but made excuses and he failed to take responsibility. I was still young, in my early twenties. I had no kids and graduated from college. Leaving him was the best thing for me, because I would go on to find the love of my life who treats me like gold.

    Dellisa Obranty

    Im about to leave my boyfriend he playing with me now im up sat. My heart feel like its breaking now

  76. nina collins

    I was 21 whn I met my fiance, im 25 now & I'm leaving him. We hve a beautiful home & family together. I've been so scared to leave, he's 35yrs, but things just aren't right. I've been lied to, cheated on, hit on, spit on, disrespected, neglected but I stayed thru it all bc he promised me things wld be different. He's 35 & my breaking point was a wk ago whn he didn't tell me he wasn't coming home, I asked why & he said he doesn't hve to tell me sh*t. 4yrs he has nvr done tht, but I've officially had enough & I truly feel I hve to let this go. Yall pray for me

    Tony Davis

    @Lady Sparkle sparkle ✨ girl foh 😆

    Akeya Ruffin

  77. myemrah123

    Who ever produced this single and video should be fired! They cut the best part of the song, when she kicks him out of the house. The song and video are boring without it.

  78. Sanique Richards
