The World & His Wife

Held together with band aid, band aid, band aid,
---x--- 
Life was but a fairytale when I was just a kid
Thought someone would luv N marry me but hey they never did
Some people aint for lovin, I guess I must be one
I thought I would, I hoped I would, I guess I got it wrong
& I never had 4 children 2 girls N 2 boys
by the time that I was old enough my tale had been destroyed
By reality, it weren’t just me, I aint the only one
Who never had a life like Disney or had Minnie as my mum
It was arguments & a deadbeat who wanted to beat her dead
I shoulda run but stayed to try and save her life instead
But sometimes there aint no reasoning & people never learn
That the ashes from their fires fall on others til they burn
& feel the pain & scars remain so trust can never be
I aint gonna lie, I’m dead inside there aint no saving me
I never came to get messed up & stressed up and burnt
I just came to make music & to luv.

But I still gotta luv for the world and his wife
You can make a stranger nice coz you don’t know.

Held together with band aid, rip it off & I’d fall apart
I don’t heal I hurt forever, that’s just the way some people are
A heart so easily broken, impossible to mend
When you can still luv from a distance
But you can never be loved again

Yeah, so I was very young when I lost all my trust
& comin from a broken home kinda makes ya tough
& I built up these barriers & walls all around
Weren’t nuthin in the whole wide world make me takem down
Everything was sound, it was all going good
Then you came along and you told me that I should
& I shouldn’t tar everybody with the same brush
When ya lips touched mine it was better than a sugar rush
I never let you dive in for a midnight swim
Not even with a rubber ring that was not my thing
I had to make sure that you were worth the risk for
& Not just a player looking to lay another fool
Who gave her heart like a fairytale, living like its old skool
I was naïve to believe it could be true, you lovin me not me lovin you
I never came to get laid & betrayed & broken
I just came to make music and to luv.

Your kinda luv aint my kinda lovin, Your kinda luv aint my kind
Your kinda luv aint my kinda lovin, Your kinda luv aint my kind

They think they’re better than her but they’re all just the same
All hypocritical playin the blame game
& The only one I trust now apart from myself
Is The mainman yeah & nobody else
& I luv in his name, & the luv is Universal
& I focus on living & giving coz life aint a rehearsal
Everything ya say N do leaves an imprint
I hope I leave mine behind in music & luv.

Whats yours gonna be? Yeah, what’s yours gonna be ?
Try not to hurt nobody
So they can never be loved again.
So they can never be loved again.

Is she dead or just dormant? Who gonna bring her to life life life?
Is she dead or just dormant who gonna bring her to life,
The girl with the rhino skin don’t let no frickin body in
is she dead or just dormant, who gonna bring her to life…?
---x--- 
Well I presume I’m emotionally dead coz I feel numb,
Accept when it comes to music then I feel it some
A geek that’s weak for the beat, my sex, my saviour,
my life complete, its all sweet.
They assume to bloom I need someone like a broom
To sweep me along, but I sing my own song
So get ya ass out my space coz I’m a lyrical bomb, like a tick tick boom
Rollin to my own tune, I been doing that since I left my Mamas womb
Won’t be glued to someones side for an ID
Be nobodies mistress or bride or wife see, I’m an independent woman
with an eye on the prize to be.
And there’s so much more to life…there’s so much more to this life.
Believe it.
