Nas - "Im Gunna Be Alright" lyrics

*Nas-

Took you from the projects

With the best clothes in your closet

Like ginger from casino and now you a pro

We was like joe damazio and marylin monrow

All your jelious girlfriends hatin watin

So I put the cards in your hand

All I know when nas was your man it was so real

Boats through sixis

Special japnees chefs makin home cooked dishes

Planin trips invisable sets, you know what you missin

*j lo-

It's funny 'cause for a while

I walked around with a smile

But deep inside I could hear voices telling me this ain't right

Don't you know it's not for you

I always knew what I had to do

But it's hard to get away

Because I love you

I just tried to stay

I used to say I couldn't do it

But I did it

After telling everybody that I wasn't with it

Though it brings tears to my eyes

I can feel it

And I know inside I'm gonna be alright

I said I couldn't do it

But I did it

After telling evreybody that I wasn't with it

Though it brings tears to my eyes

I can feel it

And that voice inside says im gonna be alright

*j lo-

Friends of mine say to me

They say you got control over me

You're not alone

I played a part

I saw the way you were from the start

Could I expect so much from you

You had a girl when I first met you

Did the best that you could do
Now I realize that I can't change you

I used to say I couldn't do it

But I did it

After telling everybody that I wasn't with it

Though it brings tears to my eyes

I can feel it

And I know inside I'm gonna be alright

I said I couldn't do it

But I did it

After telling evreybody that I wasn't with it

Though it brings tears to my eyes

I can feel it

And that voice inside says im gonna be alright

*j lo-

Said I wouldn't walk away

Somedays I want to stay

But leaving you is what I need to do to be okay

Never thought it would be true

Me livin' without you

But now it's time for me to make a move

*nas-

Nobody understand me im delin with presure

My peoples locked in the jail cel with no bail stresure

Guess its the life of a king, pimp, rap, stephen king

Rap bling like neon lights, we gonna be alright

But its like you feelin me less and claim im acting like a retard right'

Me and my boys we start fights

And will I mature you scream im in the streets all night

And where was I at you find light brown and tears on my hat

Its so cold

I used to say I couldn't do it

But I did it

After telling everybody that I wasn't with it

Though it brings tears to my eyes

I can feel it

And I know inside I'm gonna be alright

I said I couldn't do it

But I did it

After telling evreybody that I wasn't with it

Though it brings tears to my eyes

I can feel it

And that voice inside says im gonna be alright
