​Green Eyes

This song is by Erykah Badu and appears on the album Mama's Gun (2000).

My eyes are green
'Cause I eat a lot vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

My eyes are green
'Cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

I don't care, I swear
I'm too through with you, I am
You don't mean nothing to me
So go ahead and be with your friend

My eyes are green
'Cause I eats a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

I'm insecure
But I can't help it
My mind says move on
My heart lags behind

But I don't love you anymore
I'm so insecure
Never knew that love did this
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

I can't remember
The last time I felt this way
About somebody
You've done something to my mind
And I can't control it

But I don't love you anymore
Yes I do, I think
Loving you is wrong, dee-doo
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
La di dah
Dum di da-da
Dum di-di da di-da
Dum di-di da di-dum-di

I'm so confused
You tried to trick me, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Never knew that love could hurt like this
Never thought I would but I got dissed
Makes me feel so sad and hurt inside
Feel embarrassed so I want to hide
Silly me I thought your love was true
Change my name to Silly E. Badu
Before I heal, it's gonna be a while
I know it's gonna be a while, child

Da-di, da-di di-di
Da-di di-di, da-di di-di di

I hope it's not too late, too late, too late, too late, too
Feeling insecure
Love has got me sore
I don't want no more, doo-doo

Oh, oh
It's too late
Oh, oh, oh, ooh, ooh
I'm sorry, I love you
At first it was cool
You told me you love me too, ooh

Then you lost your love
Oh, then you lost your love
And then you lost your love
You wanted me to go away, but I can't go

See, I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late

Just make love to me
Just one more time and then you'll see
I can't believe I made a desperate plea
What's with me, me, me, yeah, yeah, no, oh

You see, I can't leave, it's too late
I can't leave, it's too late
Don't you know I can't leave, it's too late
Can't go nowhere, no, it's too late
It's too late
It's too late
It's too late
It's too late, yeah

Come on, babe
Don't you wanna be strong with me
You told me we had a family
Wanna run to mama when you're down and low
But times get tough and there you go
Ooh, out the door you wanna run again
Open the arms and you'll come back in
Wanna run cause you say that you were afraid
Now your free, go

Never knew what a friendship was
Never knew how to really love
You can't be what I need you to
And I don't know why I fucked with you

I know our love will never be the same
But I can't stand these growing pains
