If you were worried about where I been, or who I saw, or what club I went to with my homies, baby, don't worry. You know that you got me. If you were worried about where I been, or who I saw, or what club I went to with my homies, baby, don't worry. You know that you got me.

Somebody told me that this planet was small. We used to live in the same building on the same floor and never met before until I'm overseas on tour and peeped this Ethiopian queen from Philly taking classes abroad. She studying film and photo, flash, focus, record. Said she working on a flick and could my clique do the score? She said she loved my show in Paris at Elysee Montmartre and that I stepped off the stage and took a piece of her heart. We knew from the start that things fall apart, intentions shatter. She like that shit don't matter. When I get home, get at her through letter, phone, whatever. Let's link. Let's get together. Shit, you think not. Think the Thought went home and forgot. Time passed. We back in Philly. Now she up in my spot. Telling me the things I'm telling her is making her hot. Starting building with her constantly around the clock. Now she in my world like hip-hop and keep telling me:

If you were worried about where I been, or who I saw, or what club I went to with my homies, baby, don't worry. You know that you got me. If you were worried about where I been, or who I saw, or what club I went to with my homies, baby, don't worry. You know that you got me.

I'm the type that's always catching a flight and sometimes I got to be out at the height of the night. And that's when she flip and get on some...

Another lonely night. Seem like I'm on the side. You only loving your mic. I know you got to get that paper, daddy. Keep that shit tight, but yo, I need some sort of love in my life. You dig me? While politicking with my sister from New York City, she said she know this ball player and he think I'm pretty. Psych! I'm playing, boo. You know it's just with you I'm staying, boo. And when cats be popping game, I don't hear what they saying, boo. When you out there in the world, I'm still your girl. With all my classes, I don't have the time for life's thrills. So when you sweating on stage, think of me when you rhyme. And don't be listening to your homies. They be leaving you blind.

Yeah, so what you saying? I can trust you? Is you crazy? You my king for real. But sometimes relationships get ill. No doubt.

If you were worried about where I been, or who I saw, or what club I went to with my homies, baby, don't worry. You know that you got me. If you were worried about where I been, or who I saw, or what club I went to with my homies, baby, don't worry. You know that you got me.

That snake could be that chick, and that rat could be that cool cat that's whispering. She trying to play you for the fool, Black. If something's on your chest then let it be known. See, I'm not at you every five minutes all on the phone. And on the topic of trust, it's just a matter of fact that people bite back and fracture what's intact. And they'll forever be. I ain't on some, "Oh, I'm a celebrity." I deal with the real, so if it's artificial let it be. I've seen people caught in love like whirlwinds. Listening to they squads and listening to girlfriends. That's exactly the point where their whole world ends. Lies come in. That's where that drama begins. And she like:
