Second single from the album Soul Run, dropping May 10, 2016

lyrics

Quit calling on the telephone
I done told you that I'm not at home
A girl just needs to be alone
Don't need no one to walk to me home

I tell you its the way to be
I'm living life carefree
Got no sir to hold me down
So keep concentrating on your frown

I tell you straight
i ain't lookin
So go on your way
I got plans
And they don't include you
And its true
I've heard it all before
So take two steps backwards

Cuz i found a man who's nice and sweet
When I come home there's food to eat
He treats me like royalty
Knows the meaning of loyalty

See I've been there done that before
I know you're lookin to score
But I've got a man who's good to me
I don't got time to say please, so...

I'll tell you straight
I ain't lookin
So go on your way
I got plans and they don't include you
And its true I've heard it all before
So take two steps backwards
