Just let it die
With no goodbyes
Details don't matter
When both pay the price
Tears in my eyes
You know sometimes
It'd be like that, baby

Now every time I see you
I pretend I'm fine
When I wanna reach out to you
But I turn and I walk and I let it ride

Baby, I must confess
We were bigger than anything
Remember us at our best
And don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Oh they say
That you're in a new relationship
But we both know
Nothing comes close to
What we had, it perseveres
That we both can't forget it
How good we used to get it

There's only one me and you
And how we used to shine
No matter what you go through
We are one, that's a fact
That you can't deny
So, baby, we just can't let
The fire pass us by
Forever we'd both regret
So don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

And if she's got your head all messed up now
That's the trickery
She'll wanna have like you know how this lovin' used to be
I bet she can't do like me
She'll never be MC
Baby, don't you, don't you forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Don't, baby, don't, baby, don't let it go
No, baby, no, baby, no, baby no
Don't, baby, don't, baby, don't let it go
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Layzie Bone:
Why we make up just to break up
Wanna be together but the world tryin' to takes us
In different directions and ain't even tell us to treasure the blessings collected
But hold on up wait a second, caught up in my recollection
I remember that body you flexing
Baby me and you was all night sexing
Your boy put it down, didn't he?
You told me you'd never forget
First time that you let me hit it
Got on top of it and just rode it rode it
All night long, shoulda been all life long
Me and you cheating, won't right no wrongs
But, what a good memory, we'll stay strong

Krayzie Bone:
Now I know I've met a lot of other women in my lifetime
I've still never met none like you
So I'm never, said I'm never, given up the pleasure, not ever
I know, you was the only one true to me
I shoulda thugged you so much more
Cause it shows, through do everything you do for me
You kept it real with your boy
Believe me, I remember them days
when nothing came between me and you
We be straight up doing our thang
When you be next to me, we in ecstasy
I'mma love it, I'mma never leave it cause that's all we got
Keep me in your memory...

Mariah:
And don't forget about
Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

Oh they say
That you're in a new relationship
But we both know
Nothing comes close to
What we had, it perseveres
That we both can't forget it
How good we used to get it

There's only one me and you
And how we used to shine
No matter what you go through
We are one, that's a fact
That you can't deny
So, baby, we just can't let
The fire pass us by
Forever we'd both regret
So don't forget about us

Juelz Santana:
Let me brush my shoulders off real quick man
Aye Mimi baby, you need me baby?
You know I know how to treat a lady
See a girl like you, need a guy like me
Not a busta like that, sucka like that
Soon as you leave, he gon' want you right back
He don't want you like that
I want you like that
She like, baby no, she like baby don't
I'm like baby you know your baby won't leave you in the cold like that
(No...) I ain't new to this, I'm true to this
I treat you like when I was moving bricks
That's serious, baby I'm serious
I ain't talking materialistic
I'm talking serious business
I'm talking about the wish of wishes
Don't you wish you get this?
I know you sick, I know you tired
I know you sick of being sick and tired
X him out, count me in
you don't need to be with a clown like him

So don't forget about
Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

Mariah:
Late nights, playin' in the dark
Boy remember wakin' up in my arms
Boy don't you know that you're always in my heart
So don't forget about us

Fabolous / Styles P.:
Please don't forget of the late nights
Chased Double O, S-L, all they see is our brake lights
You know we get busy like midtown
I need you back, I can't forget, you know how we get down
And I can't say if it hadn't been for the pad and pen
That ain't even matter then, I'm always at it then
But when I think about it I'll be gettin' mad again
Cause the way we broke up was badder than Brad and Jen

Mariah:
Just let it die
With no goodbyes
Details don't matter
When both pay the price
Tears in my eyes
You know sometimes
It'd be like that, baby

Now every time I see you
I pretend I'm fine
When I wanna reach out to you
But I turn and I walk and I let it ride
Baby, I must confess
We were bigger than anything
Remember us at our best
And don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
Boy remember wakin' up in my arms
Boy don't you know that you're always in my heart
So don't forget about us

Fabolous / Styles P.:
Please don't forget
The good times, the good wine
The talks after sex
The walks on the deck
What about us?
The love and the trust
On the highway
Testarossa kickin' up dust
What about the plans for the kids and the yard full of dogs
Think of the time
Shapar for the fall
Still look at the phone, pray to God that you call
They say love larger than life, I'd die cause you on
Bonita Applebum, ma
You gotta put me on
In the 6, with the chicks, wild'n out, til the morn'
But I still can't find myself smilin' in the morn'
And I gotta tell myself I been wild'n since you gone
Yeah I've got some other chicks
But I ain't got that other shit
Met 'em on the road, gotta double up the rubbers quick
They ain't the chicks that I be under the covers with
Gotta let you know that you my only love I miss

Mariah:
Oh they say
That you're in a new relationship
But we both know
Nothing comes close to
What we had, it perseveres
That we both can't forget it
How good we used to get it

There's only one me and you
And how we used to shine
No matter what you go through
We are one, that's a fact
That you can't deny
So, baby, we just can't let
The fire pass us by
Forever we'd both regret

Fabolous / Styles P.:
Soon as you hear this song you'll remember
I'm gone 'til Noviembre
But long ass sinner
I'm long as the Jim bay
No you can't forget that
Late night
Chit chat
Turned into meet'n out
Eaten at them with that
Don't fall asleep, boo
Three screws, hit that
Break ups, make ups, go to Jacob
And get that
I'm missin' her feel
Touchin' on ya gently
His and her grills
Horn of the end days
Client's first steel
Ridin' on the 50's
Ain't nothin change but the keys and the clothes
When I was with you
I took it easy on the road
Coulda dissed you
Been on the 4 "C's" gettin' warm So don't get amnesia
Baby when we met
You was down in a breeze
And didn't have a Visa
I brought you in like Bush did to Condoleezza
Now I gotta brush it like the waves on the seas

So don't forget about
Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
Boy remember wakin' up in my arms
Boy don't you know that you're always in my heart
So don't forget about us
