(Clock Ticking)
(Talking) Ho.. Hold up, hold up, please... slow down, slow down,
Listen give me ten minutes, ahh wel-well give me five minutes
Aight but before you leave, I just need these last four minutes.

(Verse 1)
Pardon me if I'm talking fast and stumbling all over my words.
I heard you we're leaving town, I thought I'd be the one to know first.
If you have a minute let me talk to you and see what's goin on.
Don't say it's nothing when it's got to be something that's gone wrong.
Now let me explain but I don't know what to say cause I don't know what the hell happened.
I come in the house to try to work it out and all ya doin is packin
Close ya suitcase let me think straight
Damn what could be the reason
Baby talk to me I'm almost outta time

(Chorus)
I only got 4 minutes, to do what I got to do,
To prove to you, that I'm gonna do anything.
I only got 4 minutes, to say what I got to say,
To make you stay and show you that I done change (baby)
Cause in 4 minutes, i'll never have my girl again.
In 4 minutes, I'ma lose her to some other man.
4, no less no more,
I'm desperate 'cause the clock's tickin only got 4 minutes to go.

(Verse 2)
Who are these people, I don't know, in my house and they scratchin my floors.
Takin furniture outside and a u-haul pulled up to my door.
What's the reason that I get this feelin that you can't keep it real wit me.
Is it cause of the prior relationships that i had off in the streets?
Nevermind that, this is your conscience speakin and you need to get ya girl back.
You got to find a way to try to get to her heart.
I'm takin suggestions, I've learned my lesson,
In my conscience your my last life line, I'm down to my last second

(Chorus)
I only got 4 minutes (four), to do what I got to do (minutes to go),
To prove to you, that I gonna do anything (only got)
I only got 4 minutes (four), to say what I got to say,
To make you stay and show you that I done changed (I'm a changed man)
Cause in 4 minutes, I'll never have my girl again.
In 4 minutes, I'ma lose her to some other man (I'll be all alone)
4, (ooh) no less no more (baby)
I'm desperate 'cause the clock's tickin only got 4 minutes to go.

(Verse 3)
I've done things in my past, I thought this love would last.
But I can't let you go baby, (you're my everything) you're my everything lady
The reason I smile, and the reason I talk, baby
The reason I breathe, the only one for me yeah
You can't go through with this, if you left me my life wouldn't exist,
Cause i'm still in love with you, and that's my word,
I don't give a damn what you heard,
Oh, baby I'll be true

I only got 4 minutes (echo) ooh, only got 4, and I'm running outta time
I only got 4 minutes, (only 4 minutes) (echo)
I only got 4 minutes,
4 minutes, I'll never have my girl again (I'll never have)
4 minutes (oh no), I'ma lose her to some other man (I'ma lose her)
4 (ooh ho) no less no more (and I just can't take it, I don't want it to happen, I won't let it happen)
And I'm desperate cause the clock's tickin only got 4 minutes to go (oh no)

I only got 4 minutes to tell ya everything I love about you (everything I love about you)
4 minutes to say I need you (I need you) I can't live without you
I'm outta time (outta time), gotta say what's on my mind (what's on my mind, baby)
Just to keep you in my life
Oh damn I'm outta time
