If I don’t pick up the phone like I use to (For you)
Don’t you take it personal

If I don’t do all the things that I use to do (To you)
I ain’t mad at you

If you get to feelin' stressed up in your chest
Thinkin' that you about to lose (Baby, it’s true)
And if you’re losin' out on sleep

Home, worryin' about me

That’s how it be

If you don’t know, now you know you’re gonna miss (My love)
And I ain’t stressin' 'bout a doggone thing
'Cause I was true when I gave you (My love)
My love, yeah
If you search, you will never find another love like (My love)
You’re gonna miss me
I ain’t got time while you sit around and play with my (My love)
My love

If you think I caught a feeling when I heard about that other chick
(No) I already knew about it

I just needed time just to clear my mind and ask myself
(“Why I didn’t handle him?”)

If you would’ve taken care of home, 'stead of leavin' me alone
(I) Still would be right there with you
Taking care of you, steady loving you, like I used to do, ooh…

If you don’t know, now you know you’re gonna miss (My love)
And I ain’t stressin' 'bout a doggone thing
'Cause I was true when I gave you (My love)
My love, yeah
If you search, you will never find another love like (My love)
You’re gonna miss me
I ain’t got time while you sit around and play with my (My love)
My love

There was once a time I blame myself for what was wrong
I can see so clearly now, because you are gone
That’s how I spent all my time when you weren’t home
Playing around with them raggedy heifers, yeah
There’ll be no more stressin', no more cryin', no more tryin'
I would rather be alone
I’d rather be all by myself, yeah…
'Cause this valuable heart of mine was yours until I realized
Finally opened my eyes…

You see, ladies…
I know I knew better
What was I thinking?
He gon' miss me when I’m gone

If you don’t know, now you know you’re gonna miss (My love)
And I ain’t stressin' 'bout a doggone thing
'Cause I was true when I gave you (My love)
My love, yeah
If you search, you will never find another love like (My love)
You’re gonna miss me
I ain’t got time while you sit around and play with my (My love)
My love
