I loved hard once but the love wasn’t in returned
I found out the man I’d die for he wasn’t even concerned
Time it turned he tried to burn like a perm.
Though my eyes saw the deception but my heart wouldn’t let me learn.
From um some dumb woman was I.
Every time he lied he would cry and inside I’d die.
My heart must of died a thousand deaths
Compare my self to Tony Braxton thought I’d never catch my breath.
Nothing left he stole the heart beating from my chest.
I tried to call the cops that type of thief they can’t arrest.
Pain suppressed will lead to cardiac arrest.
Diamonds deserve diamonds but he convinced me I was worthless.
When my people’s would protest I told them mind their business
Cause my shit was complex more than just the sex.
I was blessed but couldn’t feel it like when I was caressed
I spent nights clutching my breast overwhelmed by god’s test.
I was god’s best contemplating death with a Gillette
But no man is ever worth the paradise no man is ever worth the paradise
No man is ever worth the paradise manifest.
