THINGS I COLLECTED
Tamia


Verse 1:
I don't need another long talk
about what's wrong with you and me
And I don't need another conversation
about the way we're supposed to be
Now I see that you're gone
and I don't believe after everything
I have to get over you

Pre-chorus:
How could you make me love you and then just walk away
Like you never did a thing to lead me on in any kind of way
How could you make me feel so helpless every day
From the path you laid before me
These are things I collected along the way

Chorus:
I got tears in my eyes sometimes and I got a bad case of sleep less nights
And I got holding you on my mind and I try to think of ways I can get you back all the time
Oh baby, that's a lot of weight to carry every day
But these are things I collected along the way

Verse 2:
Everytime I think about it I hate it in every way
Said I thought I couldn't live without you
but I live with it every day
Never thought I'd see the day that you would ever leave
But now I'm here sifting through memories

Pre-chorus X1

Chorus:
I got tears in my ears sometimes and I got a bad case of sleep less nights
And I got holding you on my mind (holding you all the time)
And I try to think of ways I can get you back all the time (I gotta get you back in my life)
Oh baby, that's a lot of weight to carry every day (that's a lot of weight to carry, lot of weight to carry)
(all the things I collected along the way)

Chorus:
I got tears in my ears sometimes and I got a bad case of sleep less nights (I don't think you know what I'm talkin' about)
And I got holding you on my mind (holding you all the time)
And I try to think of ways I can get you back all the time (I gotta get you off my mind)
Oh baby, that's a lot of weight to carry every day (that's a lot of weigh, lot of weight to carry)
(These are things I collected along the way)

Instrumental bridge

Chorus:
I got tears in my ears sometimes {I cry} and I got a bad case of sleep less nights(I got a bad case)
And I got holding you on my mind (all I wanna do is hold you)
And I try to think of ways I can get you back all the time (all the time)
Oh baby, that's a lot of weight to carry every day (that's a lot of weight to carry everyday)
(these are things I collected along my journey)
