Paroles - Convence (Feat. Mekhi Phifer)
(m)Yo, let me tell you how I care.
When I was locked up
man I couldn't smell the piss only the scent of your hair.
(b)So why you actin so scared?
(m)Now Carmen wait let me finish,
cause you you actin'bout' as bitter as a pint of da Ginness.
Looked on the wall at brotha's tags.
I swear they all spelled your name.
(b)That sounds good and everything, but the topic you've changed.
If you were down for me and loved me you would get on a plane.
(m)But you don't see that I've maintained by keeping you on the brain. In the kitchen, mashed potatoes I would sculped in your face. Slanted eyes from other guys when they would look at their plate.
You don't know how much I care.
(b)Neither do I & we can make it us against the world like we Bonnie & Clyde.
(m)You tryna make it seem like it's all on me. Like I wasn't locked up eating three, but I'm not mad cause being with you just reminds me I'm free. I'll do anything except go back to cell block "c". Stop actin' Miller on me.
Now Carmen what you need to do is don't make me choose.
I'm not sayin' that you'll lose, but what else do I have to prove?
(b)I never asked you for anything.
(m)So why start now? I'm tryna be with you forever, but lockdown, I'm not down. I'm barely a cop now and you all hostile. Twenty hours at a time I think of your eyebrows. The other four your high smile. Your style was meant for my style.
(b)I feel you baby, but I only have now. It's like you tame and I'm wild. You scared of a trial.
I'm tryna see fame, get in the game before I throw in the towel.
(b)It's this, you know you actin' like a little...
(m)You better say snitch!!!
(b)Was gonna say boy. You really a trip.
Or rather no trip. No heart and no grip. Your heart you need to go with.
(m)Apart we're gonna blow it. No P.O., No C.O.E.D., NO me and you together.
(b)If not for me then baby please just do it for the weather!!!
