THE BLACK GIRL BLUES

ONLY THE LORD KNOWS WHY I CRY IN PAIN
I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN LEFT OUT IN THE RAIN
NOT THE QUIET KIND ON A PEACEFUL NIGHT
JUST A THUNDERSTORM BOOMING WITH CRACKLING LIGHT

SO MANY WOES, AND EVEN MORE FEARS
I'VE BEEN SHEDDING THESE TEARS FOR SO MANY YEARS 
I TRY SO HARD TO DO WHAT'S BEST
I HAVE SO MANY HEARTACHES IN MY CHEST

MY BREATHING IS LIMITED, THE AIR IS SO TIGHT
I FEEL SO CONSTRICTED AND I'M TIRED OF THIS FIGHT
THE WALLS OF LIFE ARE CLOSING IN ON ME
NOW I CAN'T BREATHE AND I CANNOT SEE
WHY IS THIS CRAP HAPPENING 2 ME?
I BEG AND I PLEAD 2 BE SET FREE

CAN'T TAKE IT NO MO'
JUST WANNA GO
WHAT AM I HERE FO'?
I REALLY DON'T KNOW!

I'M SICK OF CRYIN'
I'M SICK OF TRYIN'
I'M SICK OF MYSELF
AND MY SPIRIT IS DYIN'

I'M NOT THE SAME PERSON I USED 2 BE
'CUZ THIS THING CALLED "LIFE" KNOCKED ME DOWN 2 MY KNEES
I CAN'T GO ON, I WANT 2 GIVE UP
ALL OF THIS MADNESS RUNNETH OVER MY CUP

I THINK I'M BEING PUNISHED
4 MY TARNISHED PAST
DOIN' DIRTY DEEDS & LIVIN' LIFE FAST
ALWAYS READY 2 BUCKLE UP 4 THE RIDE
IN THE END I HAD NO ONE BY MY SIDE

ONLY "THE BIG MAN" KNOWS MY FATE
IF I'LL BURN IN HELL OR BUST THRU "THE GATE"
MY WORLD IS JACKED, GOIN' AT THIS RATE
WITH MUCH LESS LOVE AND A GANG OF HATE

BUT THRU IT ALL
I TRY 2 STAND TALL
GOT BEAT DOWN MANY TIMES
BUT REFUSED 2 FALL
AND AS I END MY WORDS OF SORROW
I'LL BE FIGHTING 2 LIVE AND BATTLE TOMORROW
