    "Love Song" Lyrics

    Jean Grae

    She grew up believing in passion and love
    Whose folks divorced and remarried
    Very naive
    Seen life and committments that shoulda been dead and buried
    Highly sentimental
    Sensitive
    Gentle beyond the point she should be
    What might be obvious to most, she says they too bitter
    Can't see the world the way she does
    Clean lungs, undamaged liver
    Sees thugs through a pink-tinted glasses
    Occasionally

    Weed does make her giggle
    Listen to some music closer
    Dudes approach her
    Lightly
    Wanna be her lover and she obliges
    Likes to cuddle under the covers by candlelit fires
    Oblivious to lying schemes to talk her out of clothes
    Says shes just in love with love
    Cuts her classes
    Spending too much time entrancing romancing
    Things are changing quickly
    She's asking "why aren't you spending more time with me?"
    Nigga's eyes are getting shifty
    Coming over later smelling of pussy
    On his face, jeans, and sweaters something's fishy
    And it's not what he tells her, man, it's what he don't
    And she don't understand and for some years, she probly won't
    Just wants an honest man

    For goodness sake
    They backstabbing and cutting her throat
    Restraining orders follow, but she still optomistic about it
    Like annie, thinking tomorrow will maybe be a better day
    I let her pray on bended knees "ask him to send prince charming, please"
    She's never cheated
    Treats her man well
    Cooks, cleans, dresses sexy for him
    Halter tops and tight jeans
    Would break the law for him
    Go through a couple of these relationships
    Still stays strong
    She's too young and dumb to call it quits
    Learns that she carrying twice
    Scared and afraid the first time
    The second she don't even cry
    Makes her wipe away his tears and it hurts
    They always leave return crazy, so she doesn't flirt

    Spends time warning the babies
    Goes through a couple of these relationships and still stays strong
    Too young and dumb to call it quits
    Its still a love song

    Shes got a good man
    Shes 19, he's 21 and sweet and honest
    Promised to love her
    Talk of marriage
    She would never wanna be somebody's baby's mother
    Use rubbers occasionally
    When she's flowing
    Open to all the affection and gifts and all the good manners he's showing
    He's trying to build a life for himself
    Studies late computer shit and she's missing attention that she's not getting
    Sex dwindles
    Crawling in the sheets
    He say "ya tired" and she say she feel "neglect and defeat"
    Just doesn't see his ambition
    She wanna be the universe and hold his center position
    Starts hanging round the best friend more
    Crazy attraction takes impultive action
    Drop the drawers
    And falls in love
    The world explodes
    And she confesses "yeah I did it, so?"
    They so tight it like he moves when she stretches
    Over the couple years
    Too many stresses
    Girls who wanna fight her
    Bitches writing letters
    Friendships disappearing
    Plus he rhymes, so it's competitive
    Pressure miscarriage
    They break up fifty times a week and make up just as much
    He fuckin', and I know, but pretending I'm out of touch
    It's getting strained and gets physical
    She cries until the river dries and leaves her dead and cold
    Packs up her things and leaves behind what I thought was gold was only gold-plated
    Thinking of all the other ones I coulda just left and up and dated
    Singled after four years
    Starting over never easy
    But it takes some time to realize your own worth
    Come into your own
    Play your mental rebirth
    She starts penning some better poems
    Straighten up her bank account
    Likes to take herself out
    I'm getting better at it
    I've had a few relationships
    But still too young and dumb enough to call it quits
    It's still a love song

    Love
    All I ever want is you
    All I ever had, leading in my life was you
    All that ever was, all I ever had

    Maybe it's easier to talk about this shit in third person
    Learning better
    Looking for love in all the wrong places
    Like I'm Eddie Murphy
    Curse me to repeat the same cycle
    I'm breaking
    No longer think relations make a better woman
    Just for life, I'm pursuing
    Growing, but hopelessly romantic still
    Tasted weather in the bitter climates
    Love the sunshine better
    Dreaming of dream proposals
    Decent moral values placing higher on my chart
    Trying not to have a shallow heart
    But battle scars are deep and reaching to the depth of hell and back
    Try to give up the grudges
    Think it's experience and move from the clutches of sadness
    It's difficult
    Sometimes I wish I wasn't an adult
    Adolescent primetime sitcom star
    I've been too far and too much, too hard, for too long
    It's still a love song
