i just…

“Wanna Be Loved” © Jill Scott 2007

Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t,(don’t, don’t) don’t, don’t, don’t,
It’s bad, kno’ I mean?
It’s bad…
Sometimes it’s bad… (don’t)
Don’t feel no pity for me
Cause I’m going through a couple things,
Life means change,
That’s the way it goes, goes
All my life I had a constant burning
A strong deep, desire
An aching, ambiguous, yearning, yearning, yearning
For something better
For something bigger
For something wider
For something higher
And lots of regrets
Cause I ain’t seem to found it yet
I’ve been searching around the world
Never knowing what to expect
I get sad sometimes
Yes I be mad sometimes
Cause I’m out here on the grind
Making mine
And I still can’t seem to find
What I’ve been looking for
Opened so many doors
For real, yo
I just wanna be loved…

This is like…fiyah in my soul…right now.
