    Aww hell, here we go again once more
    This sorry black ***** is at my apartment door
    Bring me gifts that were probably stolen
    Givin me lies like it's gold he's holdin
    Can't blame my body cuz the sex is good
    But my mind is fed up with this bull **** hood
    Im gonna *** around and have a breakdown
    For all this drama thats been going down
    I admit I act like a stupid bit*h
    I give him rides when he needs a hitch
    Sometimes I give him dollers like they're pennies
    I keep sayin to myself that he do love me
    But hell when we *** I cry
    Thinkin how long before my soul dies
    How long before I open my eyes
    How many years til I realize these lies?
    I heard from a friend this ****** cheatin
    And with who is not in my reach and
    I think he's been ****in one of my girls
    He always said that puss was a "Black Pearl"
    I gave this ***** me heart, he was my first
    And he keeps doin **** to me that just gets worse
    And like Nas, I" know I can "do better
    So I gotta focus on gettin my **** together



    Im just flowin and going with my feelins and I hope u feel me. Im lost in a dark world right now
