I'm Through

by Derrick L McFadden

Iím through with the club and you ask why
Cause it puts a strain on our love thatís why.
Giving an open invitation to problems and such.
And I donít want that because I love you too much.
To me that type of atmosphere is played out.
Every time I step in there I want to bail out.
Knowing that I didnít want to go in the first place.
I go anyway just so I can see your lovely face.
I try to act like Iím having fun, but itís hard to pretend.
While I keep checking my watch waiting for the club to end.
Donít get me wrong, I like to have a good time too.
But this club thing isnít for me, although it seems to appeal to you.
You ask me why I canít have fun like everybody else.
Itís because Iím not like everybody else, and itís the club I detest.
Seeing you hug and talk to guys I never met or seen before.
You  might think they are just being nice, but I know that they want more
You probably think that Iím being insecure or donít trust you
Put yourself in my position, and see if it would bother you.
Seeing women that you never met or seen before come up and hug me.
How would that make you feel? Would that bug you? Because it bugs me.
I donít know what it is that you like about the club.
Is it the outdated music or the wanna be thugs.
Is the attention you get from guys when you step on the floor.
Or is it the weak game they run, that you adore.
You asked me do I missed being single.
What kind of question is that?
 Could it be that you are the one who wants to still mingle?
 I donít mean to sound like an asshole, Iím just being real.
Just trying to let you know how and what I feel.
Iím not telling you not to go out anymore,
thatís not the type of man I am.
I just want you to see that the club isnít good for what we have,
that's all I'm saying.
So if you still feel the need to roll out, then do what you gotta do.
Just remember that you got a husband at home that truly loves you.
