The Roots

"Song Cry (MTV Unplugged)"

[Intro: Mary J. Blige (Jay Z)]
Picture all the possibilities
(Ok)
Picture all the possibilities
(This is so soulful)
Sounds like a love song
Sounds like a love song
(Most incredible baby)
Yeah yeah

[Hook 1]
I can't see 'em coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry

[Verse 1]
Good dude, I know you love me like cooked food
Even though a nigga gotta move like a crook move
We was together on the block since free lunch
We should've been together having Four Seasons brunch
We used to use umbrellas to face the bad weather
Now we travel first class to change the forecast
Never in bunches, just me and you
I loved your point of view cause you held no punches
Still I left you for months on end
It's been months since I checked back in
We're somewhere in a small town, locking the mall down
Woodgrain, four and change, Armor All'd down
I can understand why you want a divorce now
Though I can't let you know it, pride won't let me show it
Pretend to be heroic, that's just one to grow with
But deep inside you know I'm so sick right

[Hook 2]
I can't see 'em coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I know I see it coming down your eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I can't it coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry

[Verse 2]
On repeat, the CD of BIG's "Me and My Chick"
Watching Bonnie and Clyde, pretending to be that shit
Empty gun in your hand saying, "Let me see that clip"
Shopping sprees, pull out that Visa quick
You know I had very bad credit, you helped me lease that whip
You helped me get the keys to that V dot 6
We was so happy poor but when we got rich
That's when our signals got crossed, and we got flipped
Rather mine, I don't know what made me leave that sh
Made me speed that quick, let me see - that's it
It was the cheese helping chickens get amnesia quick
I used to cut up they buddies, now they sayin they love me
Used to tell they friends I was ugly and wouldn't touch me
Then I showed up in that dubbed out buggy
And then they got fuzzy and they don't remember that
And I don't remember you, you, you

[Hook 2]
I can't see 'em coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I know I see it coming down your eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I can't it coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry

[Verse 3]
A face of stone, was shocked on the other end of the phone
Word back home is that you had a special friend
So what was oh so special then
You have given away without getting at me
That's your fault, how many times you forgiven me
How was I to know that you was plain sick of me?
I know the way a nigga living was whack
But you don't get a nigga back like that!
Shit I'm a man with pride, you don't do sh like that
You don't just pick up and leave and leave me sick like that
You don't throw away what we had, just like that
I was flirting with them girls, I was gon' get right back
They say you can't turn a bad girl good
But once a good girl's gone bad, she's gone forever
I mourn forever, shit
I've got to live with the fact I did you wrong forever

[Hook 2]
I can't see 'em coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I know I see it coming down your eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I can't it coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry

[Outro: Jay Z (Mary J Blige)]
Let's break it down
This song right here is for real, for all the hustlers right
Who had a girlfriend, and started off, their whole relationship started off you know, he did what he had to do for them, you know what I mean?
But along the way he got lost. Fast cars, fast money, you know the story
Trust me, he's right here. Alright. Do believe it. On the real son
Uh
Can't see it coming down my eyes
But I gotta make this song cry
Can't see it coming down my eyes
But I gotta make this song cry
I know I see it coming down your eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
I can't it coming down my eyes
So I gotta make the song cry
(Yeah. I said loving you, I said I need you)
Uh Uh
Uh Uh uhuh
I got lost for a second I ain't gonna lie
I was in my own thoughts for real
Alright let's get it all the way to ten, where my man Dame
Dame over there? I know Dame over there somewhere. Where you at. You gotta stand up for this
We breaking the rules
Camera blocking smamera smocking
I gotta bring up one of the most hottest producers in the last 2 years he's been on fire, he's always been on fire but he';s really been on fire. I wanna bring my man Pharrell up, come up Pharrell. I found my man Dame too. Pharrell you wanna help me out on this one?
This man right here is the producer behind the next joint, like 150 new ones on the radio right now
Yeah man you gotta dance, we gonna dance too
Let's go y'all
