    *For my girl "M", if it hurts it's not love!

    I would rather be alone
    than to be in love alone
    another night you spent
    waiting by the phone

    I listen to you *****
    I listen to you moan
    I am your shoulder to cry
    on
    When everyone else is gone

    Every Friday it's the same ole
    thang
    Wondering when he's coming home
    or if he's coming home at all...
    cause for sure the brotha didn't
    even call.

    You see you shouldn't even have
    anymore tears to cry
    You don't need another lie,
    you don't even need an alibi.
    Can't you see , it's not meant
    to be?

    I would rather be alone, than to
    be in love alone, another night
    spent by the phone wondering
    if he's coming home.

    He can't stay and he can't leave.
    So the decision to me is not so
    hard , I believe.
    He's not the one, he's just having
    fun and when it's all said and done
    You dear friend are the lonely one.
    So I will be there when you *****
    and moan, and even when you are
    all alone...
    But, I must tell you sister that I think
    you got it wrong.
    For your love is being taken for granted
    and even if your side of the story is slanted
    You don't get love if you demand it.
    But you will get hurt if you learn to stand it.

    I would rather be alone.
    No nights by the phone.
    Wondering when and if he's
    coming home.
    Find you some dignity and leave
    that man alone.

    see, I'm not understanding anyone who will inflict this kind of pain. It's reduced to "sport"...at someone else's expense. I will hurt a brotha ~ truly I will.

    very thoughtful piece, MslusciousB.

    I am feeling Shadee Ladee...

    oh a brotha will get hurt...not physically and not by my hand...

    he most likely won't even be hurt by me...but by the woman he truly loves and respects and treats him like ****!!!

    feeling this flava
    and especially this street flow

    "He's not the one,
    he's just having fun
    and when it's all said and done
    You dear friend are the lonely one"

    MSB see why i love the flava
    you always deliver
    flava and you dropped it on 'em
