MARY J BLIGE lyrics : "Good Woman Down"

[Intro:]
In my life
I've seen

It all
Now it's time
For me

To pass
On this
Knowledge to you

All my sisters
My troubled sisters
This is my

Gift to you

[1st Verse:]

Been many days
Couldn't take
The pain

Felt like
I should take
My life away

See it everyday
In every other
Young sister's face

(Young sister's face)
See'em cryin' out
Life full of doubt

Runnin' in the streets
No self esteem
Thinkin' that

Used to be me
What a shame


[B-Sect:]
And life
Is a mutha

It's hard
To sit back
And see

The same thing
That happened to me
Happen to you

This ain't love
But here's
The love

I wanna give to you

[Chorus:]

It dosen't
Matter what
They say or do

Don't let'em
Get to you
Don't be afraid

You can, you can
You can breakthrough
Take what

I've been through
To see that
You can't

Hold a good
Woman down


Went through
The same point
Of givin' up

I-I felt
Like I had enough
Went to the edge

Of the ledge
But I didn't jump
"My Life"

Will sum it up
You can't
Hold a good

Woman down

[2nd Verse:]
When I used to see
My daddy beat

My mother down
Down to her feet
I used to say
That ain't gon'
Never be me

(Never be me)
Now look at you
Bruised up
From him
Girl recognize

You're better then
Him tellin' you
That he'll never hit
You again
Girl don't cry


[Repeat B-Sect 1x]

[Repeat Chorus 1x]

[Bridge:]

Through your changes
I will hold your hand
Use my songs
As remedies
Whenever you're feelin'
Down or blue
I'll be there for you

Trust
And know
That I've been
Where you're at
Seen the things
That you can see
Lookin' at you

Resembles me
But you gotta
Hold your own

[Repeat Chorus 1x]

[Vamp:]

Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me

Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
You can't hold me


Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
Can't hold me
Down
You can't hold me

[Outro:]
There you have it
I'm still with you
My sisters
My troubled sisters
I still have troubles, too
You're not alone
I'll always be there
For you
Rock on

You can't hold
A good woman down
