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

George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
