  • 04:21 Story Lyrics Ain't No Love

    Aint No Love
    [C. Harrigan]
    He only puts you down to hide his insecurities
    cause deep inside he knows he don't deserve your loyalty
    cause everytime he cuss you out and beat you down girl
    he's praying that you stick around
    he's hoping no one else will notice you
    because he knows what he stands to lose
    so now you tell your girlfriends at the job that you fell again
    and when he grabbed you by the arm he's only playing
    its sad to say but he'll never stop
    baby girl that ain't what loves about

    chorus
    That aint no love no
    when he tell you that he love
    then he turn around and black up your eye
    that aint no love no
    when he say how much he miss you
    but he can't find his way home at night
    That aint no love
    That aint no love no
    when he tell you that your beautiful
    then he turn around and black up your eye
    that aint no love no
    when he say how much he miss you
    but he can't find his way home at night
    That aint no love no
    and I hate to break it to you girl
    but that just aint what loves about
    that aint no love no

    Girl he doesn't have a clue what you're going thru
    he's more concerned with his style than being good to you
    and now you blame yourself for something that you didn't do
    its not your fault that he don't appreciate you
    wish you could see what you're doing to yourself
    and all because of someone else
    so now he tells you last time was the last time
    beating on you like it was his past time
    wish you could see that he's just so insecure
    even he knows you deserve more
    I hate to say it but he'll never stop
    baby girl that aint what loves about

    chorus

    He only puts you down to hide his insecurities
    because he knows what you deserve he will never be
    broken hearted and bruised your still beautiful
    he see the fellas in the streets how the look at you
    and even as he pushes you away
    he's hoping that you'll stay and never go away
    girl he doesn't have a clue what you're going thru
    he more concerned with his style than with loving you
    its sad to say but he'll never stop
    baby girl that aint what loves about

    chorus

    [A. Lattibeaudiere/C. Harrigan]
    Only say the word and baby I'll be there
    Cause you were there for me when no one else would care
    Before any money or material things
    I only knew the joy that your loving could bring
    I know this world could be such a crazy place
    and sometimes all you need is a familiar face
    So as long as you need that's how long I'll stay
    here by your side and I ain't going no

    So when you need me I will be there
    More than I lifetime loving you

    You won't miss my loving
    And if you need me I will be there
    I'll spend my lifetime loving you

    If you need to cry then my shoulder is yours
    From the start when I had doubts you made me feel secure
    Everything that you had you were willing to share
    Leave you at your time of need, I'll never dare
    If ever times get cold you'll have my warm embrace
    I'll be strong and make sure that you're always safe
    And no matter how bad, in the worst of times
    I will always support you there's no pretense

    As I would too any friend of mine
    I'll never leave you in the rough of hard times
    you don't know what you mean to me
    I'll never leave you helpless out there
    So anytime you need me, I'll be
    And anytime you want boy, I'll be
    So anytime you need me you got me, Yeah yeah

  • 04:02 Story Lyrics Never Gonna Leave You

    Never Gonna Leave You
    [A. Lattibeaudiere/C. Harrigan]
    Thinking back on how it used to be
    Before there was ever you and me
    Cloudy days the only thing I see
    But then there you came like the sunshine
    and not just for now but for all time
    suddenly there's possibilities
    you gave of yourself like no other man
    and even took the time out to understand
    and this is why there's no me without you

    I'm never gonna leave you lonely
    more than my one you're my only
    never gonna leave you my baby
    even when you drive me crazy
    never gonna leave you no way
    never gonna leave you no way

    So many trials that we've been thru
    you held my hand when I couldn't see thru
    and now all I think about is you
    we've had our share of some good and some bad times
    and rainy nights came down with the sunshine
    baby there's nothing we can't do
    so let them talk and say what they want to
    cause they don't know how much that we've been thru
    cause there's no me without you

    Thinking back on how it used to be
    Before there was ever you and me
    Cloudy days the only thing I see
    But then there you came like the sunshine
    and ever since that day you've been all mine
    suddenly there's more that I can see
    you gave of yourself like no other would
    I'm never gonna leave you even if i could
    baby there's no me without you

    I'm never gonna leave you lonely
    more than my one you're my only
    never gonna leave you my baby
    even when you drive me crazy
    never gonna leave you no way
    never gonna leave you no way

     

  • 03:34 Story Lyrics Conflict

    Conflict
    [A. Lattibeaudiere/C. Harrigan]
    forgive me god its been too long since our last discussion
    forgive me once again if I ask too many questions
    but its you who gave me life and thru religion gave me faith
    this very thing that brought me to you now I can't explain
    I've learned thru your teachings that you made me to be free
    I've also learned too many times to not say what I feel
    But how can I be truthful and not speak what's on my mind
    If honesty is the policy is it only some of the time

    Chorus
    My god my religion my conflict
    My god my religion my conflict
    My god my religion this is my conflict

    I say its not about humility but all about reality
    my conflict is the practice and the things that they are teaching me
    I'd like to think there's good in every one
    And I'd like to think you'll see us as all equal when its done
    but I can't deny the questions that I've got deep down inside
    why should I as a woman be not equal in your sight
    They tell me I should trust and never question maybe so
    But I can't deny religion cause its what it gave me hope

    chorus

    My god teach me to love, but they want me to discriminate
    and you made me to live to my potential
    but in the hands of a man they'll put my fate
    Now how can I submit to being lesser than
    If in your likeness and your image I was made
    And you teach me to love my neighbor as myself
    so how can i make war in your name, my god

    chorus

    Middle Class Poverty
    [A. Lattibeaudiere/C. Harrigan]
    So much are educated yet them can't find work
    the value of the poor is right next to the dirt
    children gone a school and learn them lesson for the future
    but now they all grown up and see its all about the features
    little girls have to do what they don't wanna do
    swallow them pride a little just fi get thru
    heart broken many left without a clue same cry
    discouraged bout the future what a we still try
    can't let them keep we down in a di dust
    in this a concrete jungle your survival is a must
    college degree no longer guarantee a salary
    hard knock life dem call it middle class poverty

    dem call it middle class poverty(rpt 3 times)
    middle class poverty

    look at my brother trying hard to survive
    its a shame what he got to do to stay alive
    don't even pray no more, try hard to keep the faith
    hungry belly tired feet and sleep can't wait
    so now he's home after a ten hour day
    and every thing he knows is slowly slipping away
    his wife is off to her second job
    and now they wanna tell me money can't buy love
    the only time they got is for hi and bye
    cause he a hustle in the day and she a hustle by night
    so politicians I don't hear what your telling me
    but let me tell you about middle class poverty


    might not be sleeping on the streets
    cause we aint sleeping at all
    and the voices of the people they aint hearing the call
    tell us a honest days work for a honest days pay
    but we the people still a struggle and we just got played
    so tell me what you saying cause i just can't figure it out
    said education that i'd never be living without
    now what about the promise you made to me
    'bout working hard and shaping my own destiny
    now i work hard and gave everything you asked of me
    so tell me why I'm here in middle class poverty

    dem call it middle class poverty(rpt 3 times)

    Persevere
    [A. Lattibeaudiere/C. Harrigan]
    verse 1
    Quite possibly dem heard a we
    those a we who persevere
    in a di faces of adversity, dem know that we
    made our success our own responsibility
    and with our hands we a go shape we own a destiny

    So thru the fire thru the rain
    thru the pressure and the pain

    just look them in the eye and hold you head up to the sky
    persevere
    with everything you do believe and see it thru
    your success it depends on only you
    with everything you try
    just look them in the eye and hold you head up to the sky
    persevere
    with everything you do believe and see it thru
    your success it depends on only you

    Tell them we nah go beg fi charity
    but equal opportunity to pursue whats duly right to we
    the fight to we can't be lost if we just aim and follow thru
    remember your ambitions they depend on only you
    so when the road gets rough
    just smile and keep on moving
    them doubters wrong every day we keep on proving
    we been there before hard times aint nothing new
    just work hard and stay true

    persevere

NOTES
There is no question in today's day and time from the media coverage that our perception of someone can be formed or changed in a few minutes. While we know that it is unfair to do that to people we see on television or in the media, why do we allow that to happen to us?

In Malkia's new release, she talks about why we allow others to dictate how we are perceived. In a …
