Why U Wanna Go
Sean Kingston Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It took so long to get here, why you wanna go
Why you wanna leave me, why you wanna go
It took so long to get here, why you wanna go
Why you wanna leave me, why you wanna go

It took so long for you to get close to me
Now you wanna go run away girl, away from me
I know it's got to be hard, cause I'm so busy
Not to mention many lonely nights, just missing me

Cause there's nothing better than you by my side
Cause ain't nothing better than you by my side
Cause ain't nothing better than you by my side
Cause ain't nothing better than you by my side

It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you wanna leave me, why you wanna go
It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you wanna leave me, why you wanna go

It took some time for you to earn around your trust
I ain't going nowhere anytime soon you can put that on us
Gucci, Louie, Rodeo, we gon' live it up
Now you want to say goodbye girl, and go mess it all up

Cause there ain't nothing better than you by my side
Cause ain't nothing better than you by my side
Cause ain't nothing better than you by my side
Cause ain't nothing better than you by my side

It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you wanna leave me and why you wanna go
It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you want to leave me, why you wanna go

Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me (girl), forgive me
I love you, I love you, I love you (girl), (yes) I love you
My mom say, my pop say, the family, they all say
They love you, they love you, they love you, they love u

It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you wanna leave me and why you wanna go
It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you wanna leave me, why you wanna go
It took so long to get here, why you wanna go (tell me girl)
Why you wanna leave me and why you wanna go




It took so long to get here, why you want to go (tell me girl)
Why you want to leave me, why you wanna go

I remember those days when I was in primary 2010, I had a hottest girl in the hood and the day she was leaving, I gave her this song as a dedication. Till today have never seen her and listening to this master piece in 2022, it has brought so much memories.😭😭
