[Keyshia Cole]
i don't mind
rushing through traffic
just to get diner ready in time
and i don't mind calling when i'm late
just to give you piece of mind
and i don't mind you staying out all night
hanging with the guys
but i do mind
when you look me right dead in the eye
and you tell me lies

[Chorus]
you see it pays to tell the truth
look at what you had to loose
should think before you do
did you not know the rules
you see it pays to tell the truth
feel so sorry for you
you could have had it all
too bad you gotta fall
now you leave
gotta leave with zero
nothing (gotta leave with zero)
nada (gotta leave with zero)
you see it pays to tell the truth
but you didn't do it
gotta leave with zero
nothing , oh (gotta leave with zero)
nada (gotta leave with zero)
you see it pays to tell the truth
oh, why

[Keyshia Cole]
i tried
giving you chances just to get your act right
and i, i tried
everything from praying to breaking things to gettin out of line
those tears i cried
they hurt so deep inside
they almost rang me dry
but now its time
for you to man up
because im taking back whats mine

[Chorus]
you see it pays to tell the truth
look at what you had to loose
should think before you do
did you not know the rules
feel so sorry for you
you could have had it all
too bad you gotta fall
now you leave
gotta leave with zero
nothing (gotta leave with zero)
nada (gotta leave with zero)
you see it pays to tell the truth
but you didn't do it (what, what)
gotta leave with zero (what, what)
nothing (gotta leave with zero)
nada (gotta leave with zero)
you see it pays to tell the truth

[Meek Mill]
i lied just to protect you
never to disrespect you
cause what we had was so 38 special
and it was times that i heard niggas test you
and i ain't even ask
i was just waiting to catch you
but you caught me
and everything was on me
it was time to face the music
everything was on key
and that lie sounding good didn't it
know you sick of me
now im s'posed to leave with zero
is you kiddin me
one minus one equals none
and if you goin leave then you might leave with some
but you goin think about me every time you see me son
and ima think about you every time i see the sun
in the morning
there's goin be times we get caught up in the moment
but dont turn ya back on the man you belong with
cause if you loose then i loose to
but if you cool then im cool too

[Keyshia Cole
Now you leave (gotta leave with zero)
with nothing (what, what)
gotta leave with zero
oh, nada (gotta leave with zero)
you see it pays to tell the truth
but you didnt do it
gotta leave with zero
nothing (gotta leave with zero)
nada (gotta leave with zero)
you see it pays to tell the truth
oh
t-tell the truth
t-tell the truth
