​Things I Collected

This song is by Tamia and appears on the movie soundtrack Diary of a Mad Black Woman (2005).

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

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

I got tears in my eyes sometimes and I got a bad case of sleepless 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

Every time 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

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

I get tears in my ears sometimes and I got a bad case of sleepless 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, yeah yeah yeah)

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

I got tears in my ears sometimes and I got a bad case of sleepless 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 (on my mind)
Oh baby (oh baby, baby), that's a lot of weight to carry every day (that's a lot of weight to carry every day)
(These are things I collected along my journey)
(I need you, I need you)
