Uh Ooh...ok I got these girls quite hype, only thing on right now, like a night light,
While my brother Wayne rockin' out like a white stripe, imma kill the game,
I'm the young money white night (white night)...Yeah
Plus I'm looking for the right type cautious of a flood so I always lay the right pipe
West put me on the mart, keep life light plus I go hard for the women that I might wife
I put the ring on her index finger so if you wanna keep your girl please don't bring her
I bet that I'm the type of guy that she got a thing for, You would block me but this aint jinga
Yeah...and she someone I would work with, that's what I could tell from what she's showing on the surface.
I aint saying that I'm requesting anyone that's perfect but I just need a woman that'll make it all worth it...

[Chorus 2x]

Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock,
Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock,
This that knock, knock, knock, knock, knock...
This that knock, knock, knock, knock, knock...

I'm the one, one, one, one, one, one,
I'm the one, one, one, one, one, one,
I'm the one, one, one, one, one, one,
I'm the one, one, one, one, one, one,

Baby you got what I want.
And I think I deserve it, won’t hurt it, promise I’ll be worth it...

[Chorus:]
So give that, give me that, give me that good love.

[T.I.:]
Aye where my ladies at?
Throw you hands up.
You see a sucka lookin’ at you tell him man up.
So he bought a drink, tell’em and what.
That don’t mean he got the right to keep you handcuffed.
You got you hair done and your toes too.
You lookin’ good girl, if ain’t nobody told you.
Even the hood girls, with the gold tooth.
And where the girls who buy the purses that he owes you.
The educated ladies went to school and graduated.
Who don’t be thinkin’ everyday cause this is celebratin’
Pop bottles shawty, and do yah thing ma,
And let your hair down, and let it hang ma.
Now all the single moms raising babies on their own.
Forget your baby daddy baby you don’t need him homes’.
Whether you got your real hair or a weave on.
Whether you got some Frankie beads or some beads on.
From the a-cup to the d-cup.
To the Kiki’s, Nikki’s and Tameka’s.
Listen not only will I hit it if you throw it to me,
But imma’ beat it like you stole and you owe it to me

[Chorus (MJB):]
So give that, give me that, give me that good love.
Cause baby you’re what I’m looking for and every time you smile I want some more... (ohh)
So give that, give me that, give me that good love.
Now don’t you tell me no, just come here and give me that good love...

That good love... That good love... [repeat till end]

I Am Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better
Ain't nobody gonna touch you better
Ain't nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

When you're out at night and you're in the streets
And you have time to yourself
Think of all the love that you get from me
That you can't find nowhere else

When you're far away and I'm not around
And temptation fills your heart
Think of all the ways that I'm faithful, babe
And to replace me would be hard, 'cause there's nobody

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better
(No, nobody)
Ain't nobody gonna touch you better
(Nobody)
Ain't nobody gonna love you better
(No)
Boy, than I am, than I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody's gonna treat you as good as I am

You can try to act single if you wanna
You can go ahead and mingle if you wanna
You can even behave like
You don't care

But you know
(But you know)
Like I know
(Like I know)
That you ain't that foolish, who you foolin'?
You won't ruin what's been here all along
You ain't movin' from what you got at home

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better
Ain't nobody gonna touch you better
(Ain't nobody gonna touch you)
Ain't nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody's gonna touch you)
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody's gonna treat you as good as I am

I just want you to know, baby, I love you so
There is no need to go lookin' for nothing more
'Cause I've got everything you'll ever need right here
But if you feel that you need to leave, just know

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better
Ain't nobody gonna touch you better
(Ain't nobody)
Ain't nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

Ain't nobody gonna treat you better
Ain't nobody gonna touch you better
Ain't nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody's gonna treat you as good as I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody's gonna treat you as good as I am

As I am
As I am
Ohh, nobody's gonna treat you as good as I am

(Nobody, nobody)
As I am
(Nobody, nobody)
As I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody's gonna treat you as good as I am

Each Tear Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Woohoohoo, whooohooohoo,
Whoohoo, whoohohohohoo

There's something that I want to say,
But I feel I don't know how.
Still I just can't hold it one more day,
So I think I'll let it out.

You're on my mind more than I may show
You're in my heart more than you may know
And the last thing that I want,
Is for you to fall apart.
Your future will get clearer,
I want you to remember.

In each tear
There's a lesson, (there's a lesson)
Make you wiser than before (wiser)
Makes you stronger than you know (stronger)
In each tear (each tear)
Brings you closer to your dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak
Can take away what you're meant to be

We can't change the things,
That we done that's in the past.
But fighting won't get us anywhere.
So if you want, Here's my hand

Every night there is one thing I do
I bow my head and pray for you (pray for you)
And the last thing that I want,
Is for you to fall apart
Your future will get clearer
I want you to remember

In each tear
There's a lesson, (there's a lesson)
Makes you wiser than before (wiser)
Makes you stronger than you know (stronger)
In each tear (each tear)
Brings you closer to your dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak
Can take away what you're meant to be

You're much more than the struggle that you go through
You're not defined by your pain, so let it go?
You' re not a victim, your more like a winner
And you're not in defeat, you're more like a queen

In each tear
There's a lesson,
Makes you wiser than before
Makes you stronger than you know (stronger than you know)
In each tear (in each tear)
Brings you closer to your dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak
Can take away what you're meant to be

In each tear (each tear)
There's a lesson, (there's a lesson)
Makes you wiser than before (wiser)
Makes you stronger than you know
In each tear (Make you so much stronger)
Brings you closer to your dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak
Can take away what you're meant to be

No no we can't be held out
No no oh noo I I I can't held out
You you you can't be held out
We we we can't be held out

Love
It makes you so much stronger (stronger)
It makes you so much wiser (wiser)
In each tear (in each tear)
And You so close to your dreams and no dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak can't take away you're meant to be

Hood Love Lyrics – Mary J Blige (feat. Trey Songz)

[Trey Songz:]
Sometimes I don't get a chance to really tell you
But I promise you my love will never fail you
Don't you get it?
Right now we're writing history
A thousand years from now
They'll talk about you and me
I know sometimes I go hard
For no reason at all
Put your soul through the business
And test the weight of your heart
'cause when your back's on the wall
And there's a shortage of friends
You know that I'm with you until the end

[Chorus:]
We got hood love
I be cussin I be screamin
Like it's over then I'm longing
Then I'm feening just to hold ya
Cause that's how we do
You know that hood love is a good love
That's me and you
How you feel love?
Well I'm with u
Never quit u
Now that's real love
When you ain't here
Then I miss you
Cause I still love
The way that we do
You know that hood love is a good love
That's me and you

[Mary J. Blige:]
Sometimes I think about leaving you
But when I think about what we've been through yeah
I get a feeling like it could be the worse
Cause I've given you my best and I don't mind it... that's fine
Cause when you love somebody hard then you'll love that way for life
You got all of my heart
And I'll never leave your side
I gave my word to love ya
All the way to the end
So no matter what I'll be right here
I'll be right here cause we got hood love

[Chorus x2]

[Trey Songz:]
Now I'll play tough but not for too long
You are someone I depend on
No matter how I act at times
I could never walk away
I thought about it plenty times
But no one can take your place

[Mary J. Blige:]
Well if there ain't no you
Then there ain't no me
If there ain't no us
Then I'd rather be
By my self
Cause no one else (oh)
Could know just what i need
And really understand me

[Chorus]

In The Morning Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Baby when this all began
We said that love would never end
Some time has passed
We settled in
And know the shadow of darkness is hooverin'
Yeahhh
Tell me what happend?
You started changing up and you and me are actin' so different
I know that I love you.
And your in love with me, thats what you say, but I just can't believe it.
Yeah we disagree, fuss and fight, we get it wrong more then it's right.
Yeah we make mistakes, and fix mistakes but never even seeing eye to eye
But when the dust clears its settled, and its all said and done.
When the night breaks and day finally comes....

[Chorus]
Will you love me in the mornin'? (mornin' mornin')
After the evening will you need me?
Will you love me in the mornin'? (mornin' mornin')
Now that the suns up will you give up?

I agree it's different.
What once was, just ain't the same.
No
But... weren't you expecting this?
See when it's true love there will be some bitterness
Yeahhh
Now you so distant.
I know I'm not the woman that I was but you're not the man you were... ohh
But if you say you love me when you standing up and still in love
It shouldn't even shake your world

Yeah we disagree, fuss and fight, we get it wrong more then its right.
Yeah we make mistakes, and fix mistakes but never even seeing eye to eye

But when the dust clears it's settled, and it's all said and done.
When the night breaks and day finally comes....

[Chorus]
Will you love me in the mornin'? (mornin' mornin')
After the evening will you need me?
Will you love me in the mornin'? (mornin' mornin')
Now that the suns up will you give up?

I know things ain't the way you supposed to be it's ok.
We'll get throught this (baby, it's worth it)
Sometimes we have doubts and love just ain't perfect
So dont let go... just...

Love me in the mornin'? (mornin' mornin')
After the evening will you need me?
Will you love me in the mornin'? (mornin' mornin')
Now that the suns up will you give up?

Will you love me in the morning? (hey hey hey)
Now that the suns up... will you give up? (hey hey hey)

After the evening will you need me? ...love me in the morning...

Dont give up on me... just love me...

I Can See In Color Lyrics – Mary J Blige

It took a long time to get to this place
And now that I'm here no one can ever erase
The joy that I feel way down deep beside
The love that I have for me will never, never die

I can see in color the first sign of spring
The rose buds are blooming
I got a new song, new song to sing

Life looks so amazing
I never knew that it could open my eyes
And for the very, very first time I can see in color

Everything looks beautiful, sky so baby blue
I'm anxious to know where the rest of this road will go
If April showers bring flowers then I need, I need more rain
To quench the drought in me, so rain on me, rain on me

I can see in color the first sign of spring
The rose buds are blooming
I got a new song, a new song to sing

Life looks so amazing
I never knew that it could open, open my, open my eyes
And for the very, very first time I can see

I can see in color the first sign, the first signs of spring
It looks so beautiful to me
I can see, I can see, I can see, I can see in color
Sky so baby blue, so baby blue

I can see, I can see
I can see in color the first sign of spring
And now the rose buds are blooming

I can touch them, I can feel them
I'mma hold them forever and ever and ever and ever
And ever, I'ma hold 'em ever, I'ma be forever

I can see, I can see, I can see
I can see, I can see, I can see
I can see, see in color, color, color, color
It's all clear

Work your thing out

You can look at my palm
And see the storm coming

Just because the length of your hair ain't long
And they often criticize you for your skin tone
Wanna hold your head high

Get your runway stride home

Just Fine Lyrics – Mary J Blige

You know I love music
And every time I hear something hot
It makes me wanna move
It makes me wanna have fun
But it’s something about this joint right here
This joint right here
Its makes me wanna…..Woooh

Let it go……
Can’t let this thing called love get away from you
Feel free right now, going do what you want to do
Can’t let nobody take it away, from you, from me, from we
No time for moping around, are you kidding?
And no time for negative vibes, cause I’m winning
It’s been a long week, I put in my hardest
Gonna live my life, feels so good to get it right

So I like what I see when I’m looking at me
When I’m walking past the mirror
No stress through the night, at a time in my life
Ain’t worried about if you feel it
Got my head on straight, I got my mind right
I aint gonna let you kill it
You see I wouldn’t change my life, my life’s just…..

Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
Just fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
You see I wouldn’t change my life, my life’s just fine

Feels so good, when you’re doing all the things that you want to do
Get the best out of life, treat yourself to something new
Keep your head up high
In yourself, believe in you, believe in me
Having a really good time, I’m not complaining
And I’m a still wear a smile if it raining
I got to enjoy myself regardless
I appreciate life, I’m so glad I got mine
So I like what I see when I’m looking at me

When I’m walking past the mirror
Aint worried about you and what you gonna do
I’m a lady so I must stay classy
Got to keep it hot, keep it together
If I want to get better
You see I wouldn’t change my life, my life’s just…..
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
Just fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, ooooh
You see I won’t change my life, my life’s just fine

I aint gon’ let nothing get in my way
(I ain't gone let nobody bring me down, no, no, no)
No matter what nobody has to say
(No way, no way, no way)
I ain’t gon’ let nothing get in my way
No matter what nobody has to say

Feels so good, when you’re doing all the things that you want to do
Get the best out of life, treat yourself to something new
It’s a really good thing to say

Stay Down Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Did you know... [x7]
That I love you.
Did you know... [x4]
And I want you.

[Verse 1:]
I'll admit things ain't been the way I thought they would be.
Didn't expect so much stress to develop between me and you.
I knew that it wasn't easy but sometimes when we fight it don't seems like God's design.
But then I hear words you said and I promised I would stand for you and be true throughout the bad and the good.
And I know what it means to be committed.
So here's a word for you but you just ain't with it.

[Chorus:]
Stay down. (We're almost to the very best part)
Stay down. (You'll always be the pride in my heart)
Stay down. (We too can pass the test)
Stay down. (Yeah, we gotta lot of work)
Stay down. (I know it ain't been the best but it certainly ain't been the worst)
Stay down. (The drama will not last forever)
Stay down. (We'll beat it long as we're together)
One day we'll look back on this. (Yeah)
We'll be like "Remember this"? (Remember this)
And it's gonna make us smile. (Make us smile)
Cause in the end we stayed down.

[Verse 2:]
I ain't gone lie, at times you amaze me.
You be talking and I swear that you're crazy.
But I learned a long time ago that pride don't help.
It only hurts.
And I just want you to know... I need you baby.
(I need you)
I'm just like Weezy baby.
Not Weezy like a son of baby.
But the wife of George and we're moving on up.
Ten years strong and we're looking like a plan.
I'm looking like your woman and you're looking like my man.
We looking like real.
And the haters look fake.
Especially when they hear me say...

[Chorus:]
Stay down. (We're almost to the very best part)
Stay down. (You'll always have a place in my heart)
Stay down. (We too can pass the test)
Stay down. (You know we gotta lot of work)
Stay down. (I know it ain't been the best but it certainly ain't been the worst)
Stay down. (The drama will not last forever)
Stay down. (We'll beat it long as we're together)
One day we'll look back on this. (One day we'll look back on this.
We'll be like "Remember this"? (We'll be like "Remember this"?)
And it's gonna make us smile. (Make us smile)
Cause in the end we stayed down. (Stayed down)

[Bridge:]
Understand you are the one in my heart.
(And I'm holding yours so we can't live apart)
When things stop making sense we'll figure it out.
(I walked into this and I don't wanna walk out no, no)
(Everything ain't gonna be how we like)
(And what is worth keeping if it didn't take a fight?)
(Your healing is in me and my healing is in you)
(So get your mind right cause here's what we're gonna do)

[Chorus:]
Stay down. (We're almost to the very best part)
Stay down. (You'll always be the pride in my heart)
Stay down. (We too can pass the test)
Stay down. (You know we gotta lot of work)
Stay down. (I know it ain't been the best but it certainly ain't been the worst)
Stay down. (The drama will not last forever)
Stay down. (We'll beat it long as we're together)
One day we'll look back on this. (One day we'll look back on this)
We'll be like "Remember this"? (We'll be like "Remember this"?)
And it's gonna make us smile. (Make us smile)
Cause in the end we stayed down. (Stay down)

Hurt Again Lyrics – Mary J Blige

[Verse 1]
Sometimes I really don't wanna have to speak my mind
Cuz, I really don't wanna tell you how I, am digging you so
I can't let go, but it hurts me to my soul
I tell you every little thing that is on my mind, I can't let you know so I hide it inside
All my feelings for you, don't want you to, let it go to your head
I'm into you sometimes, but I can't get you off my mind
So I hit you with the game, always trying to act like you loving doesn't faze me when the
truth is that it amazes me
You know it's a big lie cuz you can see right thru my eyes
How much I wanna hold you, give you all my loving, baby boy let me show
And I really wanna get to know you

[Chorus]
I've been there and I've done that and I promise never to get hurt again, never again
You drive me crazy but I promise myself never to get hurt again, never again

[Verse 2]
I can never, ever let you see me this way, so I take all my feelings and I tuck 'em away
Fronting like I don't want you to hold me tight, so I act like I'm putting up a fight
To get your attention, and make you stay a while longer
So I tell you I don't like it cuz I know that'll make you wanna hold me tighter,
I can't help myself I really like you

[Chorus (2x)]

I don't deserve it,
I can never get hurt again, never get hurt again, never
I don't deserve it,
I can never get hurt again never get hurt again, no

Till The Morning Lyrics – Mary J Blige

We 'bout to take y'all way back, to love

Morning, can you touch me, can you help me?
Morning, to the sweet stuff, let me heat up

Make me loose my mind, loose track of time
But I gotta work
You keep sending messages you wantin me
But instant messages don't be as ??
If you wanna get me, put your energy
You should try it in my ear not on the phone

[Chorus:]
Yeah, yeah
I'm sensing it when you come close
Boy come on cause I'm getting mown
Oh, oh
I love it when you do that soul
Turn it up that turns me on

Morning, can you touch me, can you help me?
Morning, to the sweet stuff, let me heat up

Make me loose my mind, loose track of time
But I gotta work
I can see you know most wrapped up in the sheets
You got me going crazy screaming more
If you want to get me, like you want me to be
Than you gotta stop me for dancing on the floor

[Chorus]

Morning, can you touch me, can you help me?
Morning, to the sweet stuff, let me heat up

Make me loose my mind, loose track of time
But I gotta work

Morning, can you touch me, can you help me?

Okay, we gonna take you to the rooftop, c'mon!

Touch me, hold me.. kiss me, closely.. teach me, show me.. enjoy me!
Touch me, hold me.. kiss me, closely.. teach me, show me.. enjoy me!

Now relax now baby
Let me ease your mind
Let me get it together
And I'll be ready to go ??

[Chorus]

Morning, can you touch me, can you help me?
Morning, to the sweet stuff, let me heat up

Make me loose my mind, loose track of time
But I gotta work

Morning, can you touch me, can you help me?

Touch me, hold me.. kiss me, closely.. teach me, show me.. enjoy me!
Touch me, hold me.. kiss me, closely.. teach me, show me.. enjoy me!
Touch me, hold me.. kiss me, closely.. teach me, show me.. enjoy me!
Touch me, hold me.. kiss me, closely.. teach me, show me.. enjoy me!

Roses Lyrics – Mary J Blige

[Talk:]
See today I'm having one of them days where
I just don't want to be bothered,
but it seems like you can't understand that because it's your way or no way,
but check this out
And I'm really, really sick and tired of you steppin' into my little box
When I just don't want to be bothered okay, so check this out.

[Verse 1:]
I've had my ways, and I've had my share of ups and downs.
I been in trouble, and I couldn't tell my ups from downs
I been your baby, and I don't know why you don't seem like that no more
welcome to the new definition of love.

[Chorus:]
It ain't all roses hey,
flowers imposing hey
said it ain't all candy hey
this love stuff is demanding hey
Sometimes I need a hug [2x]

[Talk:]
See you just really wanna push all my buttons
Cause you Mr. Right & I'm Mrs. Wrong,
But right now today,
I'm going to be the one to sing this song
I'm going be Mrs. Right today it's my way, or the highway
With you there's just no getting around that I got to be bumping heads with you
What's up with that?
Listen see

[Verse 2:]
I love my man, and I know my place I know my worth
I just can't stand
to see myself as I hurt
it's been along time, and I think that I can get a little more love from you
I know some of yall go through it too cause

[Chorus (2x):]

[Talk:]
Sometimes I just wish you would just put your arms around me
When I'm feeling so [4x] very needy
But instead you just turn your back and say "suck it up"
oh you don't know how I feel right now
If you knew how I'm feeling on the inside you wouldn't say "suck it up"
Now what tha' cause

[Chorus (2x)]

[Bridge:]
It' aint' all roses you know,
Everybody ask me how good it is?
It's great love is great
When you just a mess yourself, it ain't gone be all roses.
Cause you just want your time
You wanna be selfish
You know you don't want nobody messing with you
You just want to rip somebodies head off when they try to step to you with some "Oh! You need
some help, Oh! You need to figure it out" You figure it out [2x] You go figure It out, you suck
it up [laugh chuckle]

Fade Away Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Ohhh....
Ohhh....

[Verse 1:]
It's starting to rain again.
Everything's gone now.
Even the sun.
It's starting to rain again.
Don't go away.
What have I done?
Hmmm...
I've been high and I've been low.
I've been wealthy and I've been poor.
I don't know much.
But one thing I know, this ain't no fun.
Hmmm....

[Chorus:]
Sometimes I wish that I can stand here and fade away.
(Sometimes)
Ohh...
So that no one could see the tears running down my face.
(Sometimes)
Oh, invisibility would be great.

[Verse 2:]
I painted a picture with her in his arms.
Hmmm....
It's starting to rain again.
It's all in my mind.
He's done me no harm.
Hmmm...
I've been up and I've been down.
Through all my drama, he's still around.
I can't believe that even now I put us through the storm.
Ohhh...

[Chorus:]
Sometimes I wish that I can stand here and fade away.
(Sometimes)
Ohhh...
So that no one could see the tears running down my face.
(Sometimes)
Oh, invisibility would be great.

[Bridge:]
Couldn't look at myself in the mirror.
Asking myself "How dumb could you be?"
Maybe everything would be much clearer if no one could see me.
Hmmm...
Ohhh...
Oh, invisibility would be great.
Ohhh...

[Chorus:]
Sometimes I wish that I can stand here and fade away.
(Sometimes)
Ohhh...
So that no one could see the tears running down my face.
Hey...
Hey...
Sometimes I wish that I can stand here and fade away.
(Sometimes)
Ohhh...
So that no one could see the tears running down my face.
(Sometimes)
Invisibility would be great.

What Love Is Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Hmm.
Beautiful, horrible, magical, terrible.
Reason to laugh and smile.
Reason to cry yourself to sleep at night.
Start a fight. Make up, break up, wrong or right.
Heaven for all this work can
equally be hell on earth.
(And no one really knows anything about it)
But everybody needs it.
We can't life without it.
And that's the way it goes.)
Darkest day, brightest night.
Just some other things you might hear if you ask what love feels like.

And it feels like joy, and it feels like pain.
And it feels like sunshine, feels like rain.
An excuse for dying, reason to live.
And if you don't know, that's what love is.
Love is.

Gentle kiss, sweet caress.
Kiss the base of your neck.
Argue until my head hurts, I can't remember what you said.
Out, screaming loud, don't know what were screaming bout.
So confused and yes its true, but if it wasn't there what would we do?

(And no one really knows anything about it)
But everybody needs it.
We can't life without it.
(And that's the way it goes.)
Darkest day, brightest night.
Just some other things you might hear if you ask what love feels like.

And it feels like joy, and it feels like pain.
And it feels like sunshine, feels like rain.
An excuse for dying, reason to live.
And if you don't know, that's what love is.
Love is.

That's love.
Anything that can bring you up or bring you down.
That's love.
Leave the sun up in your sky of the darkest clouds.
That's love. And we need it.
That's love. And we need it.
That's love.
Oh ask anybody how it feels

And it feels like joy, and it feels like pain.
And it feels like sunshine, feels like rain.
An excuse for dying, reason to live.
And if you don't know, that's what love is.
Love is.

And it feels like joy (joy), and it feels like pain (pain).
And it feels like sunshine, feels like rain.
An excuse for dying (oh), reason to live (oh).
And if you don't know, that's what love is.
Love is.

Work In Progress (Growing Pains) Lyrics – Mary J Blige

[Verse 1:]
Look in my eyes.
Tell me what you see
Do you see perfection in me?
To you, do I look complete?
Now take one more look pass my celebrity.
That's where you'll find the real me.
To you, do I still look complete?

[Pre-Chorus:]
I got every material thing I could ever need. (Hmmm)
I got the love from my fans that adore me. (Yeah)
And I'm grateful. (And I thank you so very much)
But my love for myself is lacking a little bit. (Just a little bit)
I can admit that I'm working on me. (Hmmm)
Staying faithful. (Staying faithful and what I'm tryna say is...)

[Chorus:]
Just like you sometimes I get down. (Just like you, I get down)
Sometimes I just wanna cry. (I just wanna cry)
Sometimes I get depressed.
And just like me, tryna be complete. (And just like me, tryna be complete, ohh)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress.

[Verse 2:]
Life can be difficult.
No one promised that it would be...
(No one promised it would be sunshine all the time)
Sunshine all the time, easy.
Some pain is guaranteed.
But it ain't impossible.
You can find the joy, you see.
Took me a while but I did finally.
Open your eyes and you will see I'm just like you.

[Chorus:]
Just like you sometimes I get down. (Get down, ohh)
Sometimes I just wanna cry. (Just wanna cry)
Sometimes I get depressed. (So depressed)
And just like me, tryna be complete. (Just like me, tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress. (We're all just, ohh)

[Bridge:]
Anybody knowing what it is to struggle. (Ohhh)
Never ever running in the face of trouble. (Oh yeah)
Say "I'm with you". (I'm with you)
"I feel you". (I feel you)
"I'm with you".
Just like you... (Sometimes I fall but I feel your pain. We're all the same)
(We're all the same, ohhh I am just like you)

[Chorus:]
Just like you sometimes I get down.
Sometimes I just wanna cry.
Sometimes I get depressed. (So depressed)
And just like me, tryna be complete. (Oh just like, just like me) (Tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress. (Just understand we're all a work in progress)

Just like you sometimes I get down. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, ohhh)
Sometimes I just wanna cry.
Sometimes I get depressed. (Can you hear me, can you feel me?)
And just like me, tryna be complete. (I am, I am, I'm just like you)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress. (A work in progress)

Smoke Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Maybe it'll rain today
And I won't have to leave my room
Givin' me the time
I need to get rid of your things
Enough procrastinating
For reasons that only I know
But I'm afraid to ask the mirror
The answers may sting

[B-Section:]
And the smoke
In my eyes makes it hard not to cry
Why you gone?
The reason is suppose to make sense
But it don't

[Chorus:]
Give me something
To spark the flame
Take away the paint
Take it away
I can feel the heat
From my face

Ooh
Holding on isn't healthy
But it's killin' me
To let go
Trying to stare
At your picture
But I can't see it
For all this smoke
Hmm
Not for all the smoke
Ooh

[B-Section:]
And the smoke
In my eyes makes it hard not to cry
Why you gone?
The reason is suppose to make sense
But it don't
But it don't
It don't
It don't
Oh, it don't

Maybe it'll rain today
And I won't have to leave my room
Givin' me the time to
Get rid of your things
Enough procrastinating
For reasons that only I know
But I'm afraid to ask the mirror
The answers may sting

[B-Section:]
And the smoke
In my eyes makes it hard not to cry
Why you gone?
The reason is suppose to make sense
But it don't

[Chorus:]
Give me something to spark the flame
Take away the pain
Take it away
I can feel the heat
From my face

Give me something to spark the flame
Take away the pain
Take it away
I can feel the heat
From my face

Give me something to spark the flame
Take away the pain
Take it away
I can feel the heat

Come To Me (Peace) Lyrics – Mary J Blige

That was love
That was then
That was us, miracles
I changed you
You changed me
This is how these things go
I was broke
And you were scared
But you stayed by my side, yea

I was yours
You were mine
It seemed we'd last forever, oh yea
I'd be the one you need
You would be the one I marry
And I'm just trying to invite my way back in your heart
And I'm telling you to...

[Chorus:]
Come to me
I'll restore freedom
I'll carve away the worries in your heart

Your heart is missed
I'm a mess, what happened to second chance
This is now, this is how easy things can get out of hand
We were cold, and we were slow then, now we end faster than light, than light

And I'm not ashamed cause my love ain't changed
I'm prepared to beg you back the whole way
Bring me your arms, I'll bring mine too
And we will heal, mend, me and you, telling you...

[Chorus:]
Come to me
I'll restore freedom
I'll carve away the worries in your heart
I'm telling you to...

Come to me
I'll restore freedom
I'll carve away the worries in your heart
And I'm here to make peace, peace, peace
I'm here to make peace, peace, peace
I'm here to make peace, peace, peace
I'm here to make peace, between u and I

Through my doors, and take my hand
Replace our love beyond this land
This is just too much to give away
I love you baby, so why don't you stay

Let the air of your voice dry my tears
Let "I love you", fall on my ears
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I want you to just...

[Chorus:]
Come to me
I'll restore freedom
I'll carve away your worries in your heart
And I'll be here to make peace
I'm here to make peace peace peace
I'm here to make peace peace peace
I'm here to make peace peace peace between you and I

Wanna make peace with you peace baby
I don't wanna fight, I just wanna do everything right
Show me how to make peace with you
I do wanna make peace with you

No One Will Do Lyrics – Mary J Blige

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, woooo [2x]

Seen many men in my time
But none of them compare to mine
I ain't gotta knock on wood
To tell y’all that I got it so good
He's everything that I need and
All that a man should be
Put me on a flight if I wanna
Buy out the mall if I wanna

[Hook]
And I know ya'll heard before
These same old metaphors
My love is so much more
I don’t wanna change it
I don’t wanna do without ya baby
Cause he’s just above the rest
I must confess the best
Love that I’ve ever had
And I just gotta let you know this

[Chorus]
Don’t let ‘em tell you nothing different
You’re the only one I’m needing
I don’t want no one but you
Baby no one will do
And what they say don’t even matter
They don’t know what I know about ya
I don’t want no one but you
Baby no one will do

It’s me and him through the wire
Cause when it comes to love he delivers
My personal UPS
I’m sending him an SOS
That I love him and I want him
And don’t wanna replace him with nobody else
I’mma keep holding on
I’mma keep the loving strong, ayayyyy

[Hook]

[Chorus]

I don’t want nobody, nobody, nobody, no, no, no, no-body but you
I don’t want nobody, I don’t want nobody
You’re the only one for me boo ohhohhh

Fact is

Bye, bye, bye
It's time I

Be Without You Lyrics – Mary J Blige

I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
Oooo (oh, oh, oh, oh) oooo

Chemistry was crazy from the get-go
Neither one of us knew why
We didn't build nothing overnight
Cuz a love like this takes some time
People swore it off as a phase
Said we can’t see that
Now from top to bottom
They see that we did that (yes)
It’s so true that (yes)
We’ve been through it (yes)
We got real sh** (yes)
See baby we been...

Too strong for too long (and I can’t be without you baby)
And I’ll be waiting up until you get home (cuz I can’t sleep without you baby)
Anybody who’s ever loved, ya know just what I feel
Too hard to fake it, nothing can replace it
Call the radio if you just can’t be without your baby

I got a question for ya
See I already know the answer
But still I wanna ask you
Would you lie? (no)
Make me cry? (no)
Do somethin’ behind my back and then try to cover it up?
Well, neither would I, baby
My love is only your love (yes)
I’ll be faithful (yes)
I’m for real (yes)
And with us you’ll always know the deal
We’ve been...

Too strong for too long (and I can’t be without you baby)
And I’ll be waiting up until you get home (cuz I can’t sleep without you baby)
Anybody who’s ever loved, ya know just what I feel
Too hard to fake it, nothing can replace it
Call the radio if you just can’t be without your baby

See this is real talk
I’m always stay (no matter what)
Good or bad (thick and thin)
Right or wrong (all day everyday)
Now if you’re down on love or don’t believe
This ain’t for you (no, this ain’t for you)
And if you got it deep in your heart
And deep down you know that it’s true (come on, come on, come on)
Well, let me see you put your hands up (hands up)
Fellas tell your lady she’s the one (fellas tell your lady she’s the one, oh)
Put your hands up (hands up)
Ladies let him know he's got your love
Look him right in his eyes and tell him
We’ve been...

Too strong for too long (and I can’t be without you baby)
And I’ll be waiting up until you get home (cuz I can’t sleep without you baby)
Anybody who’s ever loved, ya know just what I feel
Too hard to fake it, nothing can replace it
Call the radio if you just can’t be without your baby

Heeeeeeeeeeeey Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Heeeeeeeeeeeey Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you
I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you
I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you
I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you
I wanna be with you, gotta be with you, need to be with you

Gonna Breakthrough Lyrics – Mary J Blige

If you’ve been stressin you’ve been hurtin it’s gonna be alright
I know times get so hard that you can cry but not tonight
I know just what you came for get up up on the dance floor
Or where ever you are while the DJ’s breakin it down

[Chorus]
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good

All I wanna do is get in touch with you
To be real how you feel
Everybody goes through things sometimes
So let your mind just be free
Anything you wanna be, be
But whatever you do let this music get to you (get to you)

[Chorus]
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good

We gonna tear it up (we gonna tear it up)
All night listen till the morning light
Something that’s gonna sooth your mind
Its gonna sooth your mind and make you feel so good
Baby let your body free (body be anything you wanna be)
Just let go and you will see

[Rap]

Its time to break through MJ gonna take you there
Get your hands in the air and get you a three step
Lil’ somethin for the clubs and it feels so hood
Got the whole world sayin how she still so good
It’s a gift god given I’m a ribbon in the sky
So fly I’ma ride like the queen I am
Pay homage mike check one, two one, two
Pop bottles get it crunk that’s what we came to do
Get your back off the wall cause united we stand together
We ball everybody up on the floor
Like de de ne de de ne de de ne
Get your ass on the floor lets go

[Chorus]
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good

[Chorus]
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good
Ain’t no telling what we’re gonna do
But I’m gonna breakthrough and take you
and take you where it feels so good

Good Woman Down Lyrics – Mary J Blige

[Intro:]
In my life
I've seen
It all
Now it's time
For me
To pass
On this
Knowledge to you
All my sisters
My troubled sisters
This is my
Gift to you

[1st Verse:]
Been many days
Couldn't take
The pain
Felt like
I should take
My life away
See it everyday
In every other
Young sister's face
(Young sister's face)
See'em cryin' out
Life full of doubt
Runnin' in the streets
No self esteem
Thinkin' that
Used to be me
What a shame

[B-Sect:]
And life
Is a mutha
It's hard
To sit back
And see
The same thing
That happened to me
Happen to you
This ain't love
But here's
The love
I wanna give to you

[Chorus:]
It dosen't
Matter what
They say or do
Don't let'em
Get to you
Don't be afraid
You can, you can
You can breakthrough
Take what
I've been through
To see that
You can't
Hold a good
Woman down

Went through
The same point
Of givin' up
I-I felt
Like I had enough
Went to the edge
Of the ledge
But I didn't jump
"My Life"
Will sum it up
You can't
Hold a good
Woman down

[2nd Verse:]
When I used to see
My daddy beat
My mother down
Down to her feet
I used to say
That ain't gon'
Never be me
(Never be me)
Now look at you
Bruised up
From him
Girl recognize
You're better then
Him tellin' you
That he'll never hit
You again
Girl don't cry

[Repeat B-Sect 1x]

[Repeat Chorus 1x]

[Bridge:]
Through your changes
I will hold your hand
Use my songs
As remedies
Whenever you're feelin'
Down or blue
I'll be there for you
Trust
And know
That I've been
Where you're at
Seen the things
That you can see
Lookin' at you
Resembles me
But you gotta
Hold your own

[Repeat Chorus 1x]

[Vamp:]
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
You can't hold me

Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
You can't hold me

[Outro:]
There you have it
I'm still with you
My sisters
My troubled sisters
I still have troubles, too
You're not alone
I'll always be there
For you
Rock on

You can't hold
A good woman down

Take Me As I Am Lyrics – Mary J Blige

[Verse 1:]
She's been down and out
She's been wrote about
She's been talked about, constantly
She's been up and down
She's been pushed around
But they held her down, NYC
She has no regrets
She accepts the past
All these things they
helped make to make she
She's been lost and found
And she's still around
There's a reason for everything

You know I've been holdin on.
Try to make me weak,
But I still stay strong.
Put my life all up in these songs
Jus so you can feel me.
so you can get the real me

[Chorus:]
So take me as I am,
or have nothing at all.
Just take me as I am,
or have nothing at all.

[Verse 2:]
Now she's older now
Yes, she's wiser now
Can't disguise her now
She don't need
No one tellin her
What to do and say
No one tellin her
Who to be
She's on solid ground
She's been lost and found
Now, she answers to G-O-D
And she's confident
This is not the end
Ask me how I know
Cause she is me.

You know I've been holdin on.
Try to make me weak,
But I still stay strong.
Put my life all up in these songs
Jus so you can feel me.
so you can get the real me

[Chorus:]
So take me as I am,
or have nothing at all.
Just take me as I am,
or have nothing at all.

[Bridge: 2x]
So it's all or nothing at all,
All or nothing at all
Don't you know I can only be me.
(I can only be me, yeah)

[Chorus:]
So take me as I am,
or have nothing at all.
Just take me as I am,
or have nothing at all.

Take me as I am.
Take me as I am.
Said it's all or nothing at all
Said it's all or nothing at all

Just take me as I am,
or have nothing at all. (This is me)
Just take me as I am, (take me as i am)
or have nothing at all.
Just take me as I am, (take me as i am)
or have nothing, nothing at all.
Take me as I am.

Baggage Lyrics – Mary J Blige

I know I do some things that make you so confused
One minute I'm so in love and the next I can't stand you
But if u may ask it's just the things that you do
that reminds me of all of the mess that I've been through

I got this baggage with me
Don't wana make you pay for what somebody else has done to me
I don't know what to do
With all this baggage in me
Everytime I hurt your feelings it's what someones done to me
I don't mean to hurt you

Heartache and pain I just can't do it again
So I look for the worst and brace myself for the hurt
But nobody has ever treated me this way
Please be patient with me coz I want you to stay but I got all

This baggage with me
Don't wana make you pay for what somebody else has done to me
I don't know what to do
With all this baggage in me
Everytime I hurt your feelings it's what someone's done to me
I don't mean to hurt you [x2]

It's no way to be livin' my life
But I can't get it out of my mind
You know I love you yes I do
So don't, don't we get it confused

Don't be confused coz boy u know I realy do love you
Want you to stay wit me I never ment to hurt you baby
It won't be easy gettin rid of all this baggage baby

I got all of this baggage with me
Don't wana make you pay for what somebody else has done to me
I don't know what to do
With all this baggage in me
Everytime I hurt your feelings
It's what someone's done to me
I don't mean to hurt you [x2]
