 Twilight Zone
What's this twilight zone you've got my heart on?  Through everything that's been going on, you act like my love is gone.  You're the one who's always got something going on; new people constantly calling your phone, but you trip about people I've known since before I was grown.  When I ask you what's going on, then you perform.

            "Y - U always questionin' me?  It's Ur N-fidelity that led to Ur adultery.  U're the 1 who B-trayed me."

            That took a shot at my humility.  I humiliated her previously, but it only happened that once... I guess I didn't know me.  It was only eventually I began to see something more important to me.  Something I would only get from this person that meant so much to me.  So to hurt you again…  I'd sooner greet my own end before I ever it that happen again.

            So sincerely I apologized, but she had to come to her own compromise because she felt I'd tell her nothing but lies.

            I guess I understand.  I caint write myself off as a saint 'cause I aint.

I've got a spotted past just like the ones judging my ass, but I let all those opinions pass, because there's only one that matters to my black a**.  I'm not trying to smart-mouth or give you sass, but I can't remember when I felt this last and I just don't want it to slip from my grasp.

She's the one for me, I know it.  I guess what I did hurt so much she just couldn't show it, but don't make our union a regret yet.

Let's end the transgressions.  I'm burying all of my former obsessions.  I'm sorry it took so long to learn these lessons.  I'm sorry the answer to most of your questions were fabrications, but I… we've come a long way and we've grown.  We've been through enough to know, we need to move on or will you keep me caught in this twilight zone you've got my heart on.
