    Lyrics

    [Jay-Z]
    Mmm, you don't understand now be..cause you're cryin, and you hurt
    You'll understand soon enough.. soon enough

    [Singer overlaps Jay-Z]
    Let him hold you, let him touch you
    Soon you'll un-der-stand

    [Jay-Z]
    You're my best friend's sister, grown woman and all
    But you see how I am around girls; I ruin 'em all
    Plus your mom call me son, around you since I was small
    Shit I watched you mature - nah, this ain't right
    But still when your boyfriend ditched you, life's a bitch you cried
    Over my right shoulder I told you to wipe your eyes
    Take your time when you likin a guy
    Cause if he sense that your feelings too intense, it's pimp or die
    I bought you earrings on your birthday
    Drove you to college your first day
    It must be sad, though it hurts to say
    We could never be a item, don't even like him
    You deserve better - this is ugly; Gina, please don't love me
    There's better guys out there other than me
    {You need a lawyer or a doctor or somebody like that you know}
    Like a lawyer or a doctor with a Ph.D
    Think of how upset your mother and brother would be
    if they found that you was huggin me
    My conscience is fuckin with me

    [Singer]
    Let him hold you, let him touch you
    Soon you'll un-der-stand

    [Jay-Z]
    Man, I look in the eyes of a..
    this.. a kid that stole life and me together..
    We're tryin, really tryin to make it work
    I'm young, and I ain't ready, and I told you

    [Singer overlaps Jay-Z]
    Let him hold you, let him touch you
    Soon you'll un-der-stand

    [Jay-Z]
    It ain't like, I ain't tell you from day one, I ain't shit
    When it comes to relationships, I don't have the patience
    Now it's too late, we got a little life together
    and in my mind I really want you to be my wife forever
    But in the physical it's like I'ma be trife forever
    A different girl every night forever; told you to leave
    but you're stubborn and you love him and,
    no matter what despite all the fuckin and the cheatin,
    you still won't leave him, now you're grievin
    And I feel bad, believe me
    But I'm young and I ain't ready, and this ain't easy
    Wasn't fair to tell you to wait, so I told you to skate
    You chose not to, now look at the shit we gotta go through
    Doin a fight, throw in a fuss, you the mother of my baby
    I don't want you to hate me, this is about us
    Rather me; I ain't ready to be what you want me to be
    Because I love you, I want you to leave, please

    [Singer]
    Let him hold you, let him touch you
    Soon you'll un-der-stand

    [Jay-Z]
    Mm... listen ma
    I mean, I seen you workin two or three jobs
    Daddy left... I I thought I was makin things better
    I made it worse

    [Singer overlaps Jay-Z]
    Let him hold you, let him touch you
    Soon you'll un-der-stand

    [Jay-Z]
    Dear ma, I'm in the cell, lonely as hell
    Writin this scribe, thinkin bout how you must feel inside
    You tried to teach me better, but I refused to grow
    God damn I ain't the young man that you used to know
    You said the street claim lives, but I wanted things like
    bling bling ice I was wrong in hindsight
    Shit we grew apart, try to blame it on your new spouse
    I know it hurt like hell the day you kicked me out
    But your house is your house, I ain't respect the rules
    I brought crack past your door, beefed with rival crews
    And who wants to be the mother of a son who sold drugs
    Co-workers saw me on the corner slingin Larry Love
    Meanwhile, you workin hard like, two or three jobs
    Tryin to feed me and my siblings, makin an honest livin
    Who am I kiddin I, call myself easin the load
    I made the load heavy, I need money for commissary
    Try to understand, please

    [Singer - repeat all 6X until fade]
    Let him hold you, let him touch you
    Soon you'll un-der-stand
