​Back To What You Know

This song is by Ne-Yo and appears on the album Year of the Gentleman (2008).

La-di-da-la-la
Woooh whoa whoa
La-di-da-la-la

I don't know where to begin
Fighting a war I can't win
Fighting a memory
Something that use to be
Hmmm

No matter how hard I fight
All of my strength and my might
Keeps defeating me
It just keeps defeating me
Ummm

So what I'm trying to say
I know what's happening
Your body is here with me
But your heart and your mind is still with him

Go back to what you know
Go back to where you know your heart is girl
Just be honest
(This is impossible)
This is impossible
We'll never work cause you don't want it girl
You belong with him so go back to what you know

(Go back to what you know)
(Cause this is impossible)

Telling me things of you two
Killing me when he was with you
And how he was oh so sweet
The way that he use to treat you

(Seems you just can't) Keep him out of your mind
Obvious to me that I'm
Not where you want to be
Baby you don't want me
No no

So what I'm trying to say
I know what's happening
Your body is here with me
But your heart and your mind is still with him

(Go back to what you know)
(Cause this is impossible)

And if that's really what you want
I will not stand in your way
You Wanna be free
I will let you be
I'd rather you're happy
Then miserable with me
Back to what you know

(Back to what you know)
(Said back to what you know)

(Back to what you know)
This is impossible
(Cause this is impossible)

Said ain't no way to make this last
You're stuck in the past
Pedal to the gas
And drive away
