    My lady ask where are you going.
    I'm going out to have a drink.
    I need to relax and I can't think of
    another besides having sex
    that takes away my twisted gut.

    I'm creating space in this box our house.
    I need room to think.
    Over what just happened
    and what I should do.

    I have no control over you.
    I'll be back. Is all I can say.
    Maybe in a few or I'll be out all night.

    I don't like this feeling and
    arguing with you about what
    I know is small and not ours.

    Think about it baby the problem is
    small it isn't a big one at all.

    I didn't cheat.
    I didn't hit you or cuss.
    It's ok to disagree.

    Your sisters husband is the
    one that did wrong.

    So why am I catching the beef.

    Our threshold is sacred.
    We pay this phone bill
    why let this grief enter our home.
    Because he did it, I'm guilty by association.

    Your mind is running away.
    It's not OK to think because it
    happens in this world that
    I am guilty too.

    But I gave you my answer,
    you won't let it go.
    Please let me think and retreat.

    Before the argument that is splitting us.
    You know my vocabulary is larger than this.
    But a man will speak and then use his fist.
    So let me go it best to air the difference were having.
    Give me space cause I care.

    I know you say everytime we disagree
    I run for the door.
    You must understand and see.

    Confrontation is different for a man.
    If it comes and upsets he puts it down.
    Toe to Toe means blow for blow.
    It's the law of the streets.
    I don't want to bring it home.

    Don't hit me girl,
    I will have to defend myself
    and nothing good will come of that.
    I love you and would rather
    leave right now.
    I know this arguing
    will get us nowhere.

    they way you handled yourself deserves lots of respect. i've lived some of this also, and most of them time, it didn't turn out like this.
