  • I knew a woman more wonderful than a Disney one
    I lost my heart, I just wondered if you could give me one?
    I hit you back, you know lately I've had some busy ones
    I been getting this money just on my Lizzy ones
    And now we're acting like children, it's so pathetic
    I was trying to reach out for ages, I need my credit
    There's a couple lines in our script I think we should edit
    Why you gotta bitch all the time? Just read my message

    Shit, fucking hell, I'm such a handful
    On one hand I'm pissed, but on the other hand I'm thankful
    Times when it was bliss and there were times it was a shambles
    Times when it was lit and other times we lit the candles
    You're probably reminiscing when you could be hella dissing
    Never been the type to be so reckless with decisions
    Swear you tried to tell me but it's like I never listen
    And I was meant to share your vision
    I was meant to be your rider, put a bit of Henny on my rider
    You can stay at home, I'll send a driver
    I'll be your provider, No, I'm not around but it's a minor
    Cah I don't like the spotlight and you don't like it neither
    But that was then and this is now
    I was pacing 'round my kitchen like this shit is foul
    I done the dirt and then I figured that you'll dig it out
    But that's a coward move, I guess you got me figured out
    I know you'll never listen now

    You taught me love, oh, what a gift
    I know that it's hard, too hard to forgive
    And to be honest if I were you
    I'd be the same way
    To be honest if I were you
    Then I'd be unforgiving too

    Fast forward now, my nephew's still asking for his Auntie Maya
    Guess this is the karma for what I done to Maya
    I just stood and let it burn, I couldn't down the fire
    Lord, I pray you make it easy, that's my one desire
    God loves a trier
    I can't even fathom what I probably had you going through
    You cannot imagine how I'm sorry, man, I'm showing you
    Now I haven't even got the luxury of knowing you
    We was even meant to share a seed and let it grow in you
    I can't even look you in the eye, that's 'cause of shame
    Now you're tryna block me out your mind, that's 'cause of pain
    Greatest love I ever knew, I poured it down the drain
    Maybe it's the only way we both call it a day
    You gave me the world and then I gave you disrespect
    Hand on my heart, this is my biggest of regrets
    Thought I'd say it here then rather fling it in a text
    Until you're ready to forgive I'm always wishing you the best but

    You taught me love, oh, what a gift
    I know that it's hard, too hard to forgive
    And to be honest if I were you
    I'd be the same way
    To be honest if I were you
    Then I'd be unforgiving too

    You taught me love, oh, what a gift
    I know that it's hard, too hard to forgive
    And to be honest if I were you
    I'd be the same way
    To be honest if I were you
    Then I'd be unforgiving too Writer/s: Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Junior, Thomas Edward
