Baby, (sit down)
I got something that I need to say (right now)
Before the rumors spread and make their way (around town)
I thought I'd be a man and tell you first, but I know it's got to hurt
Baby, please let me explain (explain-plain-plain)
It happened all the sudden outta control (control-trol-trol)
She had my heart and would not let it go (ooo)
I'm not tryin' to say that it was okay or that I didn't do it
But I gotta tell the truth (the whole truth)
With my right hand up ('cause I don't wanna lose you)
It's time to man up (I just gotta be the one to tell you)
(Baby, believe me when I say)
You don't wanna find out the hard way
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Baby (if I) would've never seen her walkin' down the block
I probably would have not pulled over and asked her if she need (a ride)
But I noticed she had make-up on her eye, then she started to cry
I said, "Baby, please, explain."
She said her man put his hands on her, he was outta control
And she really needs someone to hold and not let go
And then she looked into my eyes just like you do, then I imagined she was you
Baby, I wish that I was a magician and I could make all of this disappear
And, baby, I wish that I could go back in time; and trust me, baby, we wouldn't be here
But you've been so good to me, how could I do this to you?
And I never meant to hurt you, how can I prove it to you?
I'm just tryin' to see what's been on my mind 'cause it hurt you
