    We grew up together
    Down for whateva
    My sidekick, my partner in crime
    My sistah, we share the same blood line
    Experienced everything with u
    Fought with u, cried with u, laughed with u
    But you changed on me, you aren’t the same person I used to know
    Or maybe that’s how u have always been, now you just choose to show
    What’s really in ur heart, no forget that, u don’t own a heart
    Cuz u lied on me, took my property, and purposely tried to rip me a part
    And then have the nerve to smile in my face
    You shared my clothes, ate my food, stayed at my place
    You know my secrets, thoughts, and my faults
    I fought battles for u, covered for u and u took this for a grain of salt
    The problem is I promised to be there for you til the end of time….

    You were my first real love, you made my heart beat
    I changed my life for you and made urs complete
    I gave you my time and my patience
    U name it, I was it- loving, understanding, spontaneous
    Made you laugh when teardrops filled ur eyes
    I know I am not perfect, but I never fed you lies
    I never cheated, I never thought anyone amounted to u
    Then u cheat on me at the time when I counted on u
    I even forgave you; I tried to work it out
    But u ran away, left me in a state of hurt and doubt
    I trusted u, I believed in u, ran to u
    Now I want to leave u alone cuz I just don’t understand u
    But the problem is I promised to stay with u and take u along with me as I rise…

    You have been my other half on that court
    We ruled this state, hell… we ruled this sport
    We made dreams and actually began to accomplish them
    People want to be us, people watch us, and people follow our tracks
    That’s all we wanted and now you are slowly slipping through the cracks
    You had a baby, we accepted that, I helped you get back on ur feet
    You had to change schools, that was okay, as long as you went to class to complete
    the year
    But now, you have lost focus, you chase the man that made that baby
    You have opportunities people only dream of, but ur acting crazy
    Sometimes you don’t go to school and you’re quick to cop an attitude
    When I’m just trying to show you love, you don’t show me gratitude
    I’ve been handling my business, while you have drifted
    But I can’t stay here for long, my priorities have shifted
    But the problem is, I promised to stay on the same level and share the credit…

    And I always keep my promises, even if yall have never kept yours…

    So deep so many turns
    promises are some serious
    things...
    can you imagine vows
    made to God?
    mad deep.
