    I'm not that girl
    that one who had your child and moved upstate
    I ain't trying to do you dirt
    I been there before
    I know you have too, I know you've been hurt
    I'm not that girl
    that one who got out of your bed and slept
    with your sister's best friends boyfriend
    when I say I'm at my mama's house you
    can bet your bottom dollar that's where I've been

    Please tell me why
    it just can't be you and I
    Why no matter how I try
    you see her when you look into my eyes?

    I'm not that girl
    that one that took your cash for hair and nails
    look, boo, I got my own job too
    I can do it by myself
    But can't you see how much more than one two can do
    I'm not that girl
    that one that hid her pager, cell phone, webpage
    if I want another man I know how to find the door
    If I stay here with you, you ought to know
    it's you I want and nothing more

    Please tell me why
    it just can't be you and I
    Why matter what I do
    you see her when you look into my eyes?

    I'm not that girl
    God knows the hours I've spent crying and trying
    to wipe her from your life, your house, your head
    And every time I spread my legs I close my eyes
    praying God please don't make me share my bed
    I'm not that girl
    I don't know maybe one day you will see
    what we could have had, maybe I'll still be alone
    Waiting, but don't count on it, I'm through wasting time
    If you'd rather live with ghosts, I'll go
    and let her have your life, I've go to find mine

    Please tell me why
    it just can't be you and I
    Why no matter what I do
    you see her when you look into my eyes?
