  • I ran away from love
    It's gettin' hard for me to breathe
    'Cause the man that I've been runnin' from is inside of me
    I tell him, "keep it quiet"
    So all he does is speak
    'Cause he wants to keep his distance
    But it's hard for him to leave
    He knows I hear him cryin'
    Cryin' out for help
    I don't know how to save him
    I can't even save myself
    There's many people dyin'
    I've always been afraid
    Not that I'm scared of livin'
    I'm scared of feeling pain

    I don't need another hand, I need a couple suggestions
    Always had a little trouble with self-reflections
    Now, does my raw emotion make me less of a man? Hmm
    Always had a little trouble with self-reflections

    I've been so used to winnin'
    It was hard for me to lose
    No, there's nothing wrong with me
    There's just something wrong with you
    So I've been making changes
    Been workin' on my health
    No more competition
    Can't compete against myself, no, no, no
    I'm not doin' this to be loved, no, no
    I've been doin' this to be remembered
    Let the people hear it if they want to
    All the one's around me get it on, too
    If I die tomorrow and I'm gone, I'm gone
    Let the blood run high
    Let the carpets drown
    I'll be forever numb

    I don't need another hand, I need a couple suggestions
    Always had a little trouble with self-reflections
    Now, does my raw emotion make me less of a man? Hmm
    Always had a little trouble with self-reflections
    I don't need another hand, I need a couple suggestions
    Always had a little trouble with self-reflections
    Now, does my raw emotion make me less of a man? Hmm
    Always had a little trouble with self-reflections

    Let this be a promise
    That when it's said and done
    Be a flower in the garden
    Be one with the sun
    Be one with the sun
    Be one with the sun
    Be one with the sun
    Be one with the sun Writer/s: Chauncey Jr. Hollis, Khalid Robinson, Samuel Elliot Roman
