    You loved me once but you chose to let that go,
    So why come back now I’ll never know.

    Wanting to do this and wanting to do that,
    You’re not my man, remember that!
    What we had may have been good but not good enough to last,
    I don’t want to reminisce, why should I?
    What we had it’s in the past.

    Even if things were different and I was single and alone,
    I wouldn’t go back to you for even a dog doesn’t go back and lick off an old, dirty, used bone.

    Giving advice here and there because you say that you’re my friend,
    Why couldn’t you be my friend in the relationship?
    Why? I already know,
    Because you weren’t man enough to tell me the truth,
    You wanted it to end.


    Now you’re in another relationship and not happy at all,
    And instead of talking to her it’s me you call.
    So what do you want me to do?
    I’m in a new relationship too,
    I’m not the same friend you use to call on,
    I can’t pull you through.

    I can’t be your right hand mate to your left hand anymore,
    I can’t be the one to mend your emotional sore,
    I can’t do it because you’re not my man, not anymore.

    This was flowed very smoothly from beginning to end. Sometimes folks have to learn lessons from the school of hard knocks. Posed on point.
