Bobby Brown has debuted an emotional new song dedicated to his ex-wife Whitney Houston, in which he admits he "messed up pretty bad" during their marriage.
The New Edition star performed the track Don't Let Me Die on U.S. TV's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday (16May12).
In the lyrics, the R&B singer opens up about the painful loss of Houston and his regrets about their tumultuous 15-year marriage, which ended in divorce in 2007.
He sang, "I guess I messed up pretty bad... I didn't know who you were... I didn't know what we had. Now I'm stuck living in the past... trying to get the pieces back... but I guess now you're gone."
In another line, he claims he "doesn't know how to live without you" and begs Houston, "Don't let me die".
The I Will Always Love You singer died in February (12).
The deeply personal song will feature on Brown's upcoming album, The Masterpiece, which will hit music retailers next month (Jun12). The release is his first solo project in 15 years
