But don't be unkind 
It don't mean I'm lyin'

When you and I first met we were so inseparable 
And on that last day I left
Thinkin' we'd need a miracle  Cause every little word that you said to me 
 Became the biggest pain in my heart 
And all my pride makin' me pretend 
To be so happy that were apart 
You just don't understand 

[Chorus]
You just don't understand 
You got to be there for me
You hold mah heart in your hand
You got to be there for me
You just don't understand 

So far down this road I'm not sure we can repair 
And each and every time we be on the phone 
We both actin' like we don't care
It would be so sad to me 
To be the one that got away
 Hurts just as much to see 
To see the feelings we have decay  Decay in front of our eyes

You just don't understand 
You got to be there for me (you)
You hold mah heart in your hand (you just don't understand)
You got to be there for me
You just don't understand 

You just don't understand 
You got to be there for me (you've got to be there)
You hold mah heart in your hand
You got to be there for me

You're all all that I have
You don't understand na na na na na na na na
(we just cant work it out)
Na na na na na na na na
Be there Be there Be there Be there Be there 
You got to be there for me
Be there Be there Be there Be there Be there 

You got to be there for me 
You got to be there for me 
You got to be there for me 
You got to be there for me
