    Lyrics

    (Jill Scott)
    I've been wondering about the Complexity
    Of what we have it shouldn't be
    More
    Just can't see
    More

    (Black Thought)
    You're physically in this, but how can we tell
    If we was meant to be in bliss if you're not mentally as well
    This energy you're sending me is tricky as hell
    Usually it's like a 50/50 we can take an L
    Before we start things
    At this point being apart brings
    The feeling of somebody plucking at your heart-strings
    I know it probably shouldn't feel like this
    But any other woman I see is in your likeness
    It's from your cheekbones...
    To your lips...
    To your curves...
    To your deep moans...
    To that walk...
    To your words...
    Your love feelin' like a breakdown on the verve
    First we on good terms, then you're on my last nerve
    Got my back just aching
    My Shoes is all tight
    It's too complex when we choose to do it right
    It's wrong
    One minute you a soldier - strong
    Then you turn around talking 'bout its over and gone.
    (i swear to god...)

    (Jill Scott)

    (Black Thought)
    When your boyfriend's in town it's bound to be trouble, love
    His name Black and he known to be a lover of
    Gettin' it on with my smokers jacket on
    Eyes racin' back and forth
    Listening to shaggacorn
    Tryin' to
    Figure the cause
    Why you always hackin' off
    Like I'm slackin' off
    Maybe our signals getting crossed
    What the case, love?
    You feel like you makin' a waste of
    Your precious time? - You need to get a taste of
    Some space to breathe, a moment as friends
    We shoulda felt ourselves slippin' into it again
    'Cuz it's like
    Off and on, on and off
    Passion - Lost and found, found and lost
    Clashin', askin' for nothing but understanding
    Your heart's made of glass, use care in handling
    Girl - all-in-all I never leave you stranded
    'Cuz my respect you commanded
    (you figure it out...)

    (Black Thought)
    I used to come into the party
    And stand around
    'Cuz I was kinda too shy to really get down
    I used to, play the corner
    And watch the scene
    Deep down, knowing I wanted, to find me a queen
    And I can feel that in my stomach
    And up in my chest
    Because I knew a lot of women, and some was fresh
    But then I found you, girl and just like me
    You had a heart that was yearning to be set free
    Now listen
    See you and me need to take the time
    To erase any doubt that's inside your mind
    Its not a mountain that I'm ever too tired to climb
    And who's counting? - But I know at least a thousand times
    I let you know I'm here for you, care for you, and confide in you
    Break bread, share with you and provide for you
    And that's full time - it's no 9 to 5 with you
    That's why I'm tryin' to work it out with you
    (Let's go.)
