Written by babyface (1995)Performed by mary j. bligeWhile all the time that I was lovin’ youYou were busy lovin’ yourselfI would stop breathin’ if you told me toNow you’re busy loving someone elseEleven years, out of my lifeBesides the kids I’ve got nothing to showWasted my years, a fool of a wifeI shoulda left your ass long time agoWell I’m not gon’ cryI’m not gon’ cry, I’m not gon’ shed no tearsNo I’m not gon’ cry, it’s not the time’cause you’re not worth my tearsI was your lover and your secretaryWorking every day of the weekWas at the job when no one else was thereHelping you get on your feetEleven years of sacrificeAnd you can leave me at the drop of a dimeSwallowed my fears, stood by your sideI shoulda left your ass a thousand timesHookI know there are no guaranteesIn love you take your chancesBut somehow it seems unfair to meLook at the circumstancesThrough sickness and health, ’til death do us partThose were the words that we said from our heartsSo now when you say that you’re leaving meI don’t get that partI was your lover and your secretaryWorking every day of the weekWas at the job when no one else was thereHelping you get on your feetEleven years of sacrificeAnd you can leave me at the drop of a dimeSwallowed my fears, stood by your sideI shoulda left your ass a thousand timesHook
