    Lyrics

    Chorus:
    Look at you, different day the same damn bags,
    You're on my porch, And I don't even have to ask,
    I see tears in your eyes as you come inside and break down.

    Oh, what's he done? And I hope this won't take long,
    'Cause you know one call from him and you'll be home before morn'
    Here's a friendly hug followed by tough love.
    Are you ready?

    (Chorus)
    He's only gonna treat you the way he knows he can
    It's up to you, my sister, to show him that he can
    Have you had enough? has it been long enough?
    It's time for a change starting with you.

    Oh, don't say a word.
    Listen to Deborah for once,
    cause you know I've been through the same thing
    Now I'll tell you what needs to be done,
    Mavis said it best, girl respect yourself
    It starts with you. YOU!

    (Chorus)
    He's only gonna treat you the way he knows he can
    It's up to you, my sister, to show him that he can
    Have you had enough? has it been long enough?
    It's time for a change starting with you.

    If you want him to be a better man
    If you want him to treat you better than,
    You treat yourself then you can help
    By showing him that he can.
    You can start by building your self esteem
    Start believing you can do anything
    And you'll find your man will fall in line
    And if he don't then leave him behind.

    (Chorus)
    He's only gonna treat you the way he knows he can
    It's up to you, my sister, to show him that he can
    Have you had enough? has it been long enough?
    It's time for a change starting with you.

    He's only gonna treat you the way he knows he can
    It's up to you, my sister, to show him that he can
    Have you had enough? has it been long enough?
    It's time for a change starting with you.
