Feel Inside

Album: My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act I) (2011)
  • Turn the track up a little bit
    We need to rock in here

    I wanna make you happy

    Uh, I’m not at all happy or elated, this category ain’t my favorite
    It’s my story, I’ma state it, you could love it or hate it
    I’m just a misfit blessed with good dick and intelligence
    Hood nigga holding no grudges on petty shit
    I started, why are we cold hearted, so guarded
    Scared to get hurt, trying not to love the hardest
    That’s garbage, remember when we loved each other
    Bathtub scrubbed each other, chillin', champagne spillin'
    Uh, feelin' like the shit gon' last forever
    Time went so fast, we had a blast together
    Laughs we had, friends we spent time with
    Now I be seeing your friends out, then I’m reminded
    How we all used to gather up for the holidays
    Now your friends all nervous to speak, they act afraid
    I was your best, how it get to this
    As I reminisce, takin' off my MJs in my empty crib
    Mary

    I wanna make you happy
    But you just don’t see it
    I wanna be around, babe
    But I’m so tired of competing
    We say all the wrong things
    Till we make each other cry
    What are we doing?
    Will it ever get better?
    My heart, my soul
    I gave, it’s yours
    I can’t get back
    All the things that I lost
    Boy, I love you
    But you’re pushing me away

    I gave you everything that I got
    Watched my feelings walk on by
    Ever get sick of trying?
    This is how I feel inside
    I feel inside

    Now I was hoping
    We’d get through this together
    You said you’d love me
    Through all types of stormy weather
    Wasn’t it you who said
    We’d be together for all time
    But it keeps messing with my mind
    My heart, my soul
    I gave, it’s yours
    I can’t get back
    All the things that I lost
    I need you here near me
    But I can’t make you stay
    I can’t make you stay
    I can’t make you stay

    I gave you everything that I got
    Watched my feelings walk on by
    Ever get sick of trying?
    This is how I feel inside
    How I feel inside
    How I feel inside
    This is how I feel
    This is how I feel

    I never thought that I would have this feeling
    Do you think for once that you can truly mean it
    Wasting so much time disagreeing
    See, I’m to the point where I don’t know what I believe in

    If you don’t want this, I don’t want this, I do my morning crunches
    Play my jazz, pray to the east, and watch the sunset
    Uh, but yet I was blowin' you up the other night
    Could tell your girl was telling you what to write, back
    Tell me why it’s like that

    So make up your mind, boy decide
    We can’t go on like this, this ain’t right (it ain’t right)
    Feeling really bad, feeling kinda low
    Think it’s time to go

    I gave you everything that I got
    Watched my feelings walk on by
    Ever get sick of trying?
    This is how I feel inside
    This is how I feel
    This is how I feel Writer/s: ANDREA MARTIN, ARDEN ALTINO, CLIFFORD SMITH, COREY WOODS, DARRYL HILL, DENNIS COLES, ELGIN TURNER, GARY GRICE, JASON HUNTER, JERRY DUPLESSIS, LAMONT HAWKINS, MARY J. BLIGE, NASIR JONES, ROBERT F. DIGGS, RUSSELL JONES
