4 Minutes
by Avant

I'm about to make you the star of the show

Hold, hold up, hold up
Slow down, slow down
Listen, give me ten minutes
Well gimme five minutes, aight
B-before you leave I just need these last four minutes

Pardon me if I'm talking fast and stumbling all over my words
I heard you were leavin' town I thought I'd be the one to know first
If you have a minute let me talk to you and see what's going on
Don't say it's nothing when it's gotta be something that's gone wrong
Now let me explain but I don't know what to say
'Cause I don't know what the hell happened
I come in the house to try to work it out
And all you're doing is packing
Close your suitcase let me think straight
Damn what could be the reason?
Baby talk me I'm almost outta time

I only got four minutes to do what I gotta do
To prove to you that I'm gonna do anything
Only got four minutes to say what I gotta say
To make you stay and show you that I done change
'Cause in four minutes I'll never have my girl again
In four minutes I'm a lose her to some other man
For no less no more
I'm desperate 'cause the clocks ticking
Only got four minutes to go

Who are these people I don't know
In my house and they scratching my floors
Takin' furniture outside and the U-Haul pull up to my door
What's the reason that I get this feelin'
That you can't keep it real with me
Is it 'cause of the prime relationships
That I had off in the streets?
Never mind that this is your conscience speaking
And you need to get your girl back
You gotta find a way to try to get to her heart
I'm takin' suggestions I've learned my lesson
Think conscience you're my last lifeline
I'm down to my last second

I only got four minutes to do what I gotta do
To prove to you that I'm gonna do anything
Only got four minutes to say what I gotta say
To make you stay and show you that I done change (I'm a changed man)
'Cause in four minutes I'll never have my girl again
In four minutes I'm a lose her to some other man
For no less no more
I'm desperate 'cause the clocks ticking
Only got four minutes to go

(I've done) I've done things in my past
I thought this love would last
But I can't let you go baby
You're my everything lady
The reason I smile and the reason I talk, baby
The reason I breathe, the only one for me, yeah
You can't go through with this
If you left me my life wouldn't exist
'Cause I'm still in love with you
And that's my word I don't give a damn what you heard
Oh, baby I'll be true

I only got four minutes
Oh, I got four, and I'm running out of time
I only got four minutes
I only got four minutes

Four minutes I'll never have my girl again (I'll never have)
In four minutes (oh no) I'm a lose her to some other man (I'm a lose her)
For (oh ho) no less no more
(And I just can't take it I don't want it happen I won't let it happen)
Oh no

Everything I love about you
I need you
I'm out of time (gotta say what's on my mind)
What's on mind, baby
Oh, damn I'm outta time
