Alicia Keys Feat. Drake - UnThinkable (I'm Ready) [Remix]




(i need you to rescue me from my destiny)





I been alone in my mind most my life-

Searching for someone to love me for me- flaws, fractures, cracked jaw

Maybe it isn't meant for me

I was loved twice- maybe that is all i get

I stand alone in an empty room- And I see the colors with tear filled eyes

Trying so hard to make my life better, working, slaving with a broken body & a broken heart

Get up every morning working with a body full of pain

I hold the tears back as much as I can- The medicine only helps so much

Look in the mirror at the grey on my temples i cover with dye

Look at the lines under my eyes- You have aged me baby- Took away what I needed most

I can't blame you, I'm complicated, broke & all I could give you was love

Love that sears your heart & soul

I go on....One foot in front of the other

And men....They try to get to me where I work-

Try to grab a piece of me- I can't let them in- Can't let them stay the night in a bed I shared with you-

Oh, rue. that's where we're all alone. always.

Even when we share, there are corners where nobody may go.

We are all complicated. Simple equations don't compute.

"I go on....One foot in front of the other"
It's what we do.

don't slaughter our whole sex on the basis of a few assholes. :)

Would that we were all looking for more than "a piece."
