Usher - Separated Lyrics

Oh no no no no,

If love was a bird, then we wouldn't have wings
If love was a sky, we'd be blue
If love was a choir, you and I could never sing
'Cause love isn't for me and you
If love was an Oscar, you and I could never win
'Cause we could never act out our parts
If love is the bible, then we are lost in sin
Cause it's not in our hearts

So why don't you go your way
And I'll go mine
Live your life
And I'll live mine
Baby you'll do well
And I'll be fine
'Cause we're better off separated

If love was a fire, then we have lost the spark
Love never felt so cold
If love was the light, then we're lost in the dark
Left with no one to hold
If love was a sport, we're not on the same team
You and i are destined to lose
If love was an ocean, then we are just a stream
'Cause love isn't for me and you

Why don't you go your way
And I'll go mine
Live your life
And I'll live mine
Baby you'll do well
And I'll be fine
'Cause we're better off separated

Girl I know we had some good times
It's sad but now, we gotta say goodbye
Girl you know I love you, I can't deny
Can't say we didn't try to make it work for you and I
I know it hurts, so much but it's best for us
Somewhere along this winding road we lost the trust
So I'll walk away, so you don't have to see me cry
It's killing me so, why don't you go

Why don't you go your way (oh)
And I'll go mine (baby)
Live your life (oh)
And I'll live mine (I'll live mine)
Baby you'll do well (I'll be fine)
And I'll be fine
'Cause we're better off, so much better off

Go your way (Go your way)
And I'll go mine (I'll go mine)
Live your life (Your life)
I'll live mine
You'll do well (ohh hoo)
And I'll be fine

'Cause we're better off, so much better off
So much better off
Separated

I'm sorry we didn't make it
