Jill Scott – The Fact Is(I Need You)
I can pay my own light bill, baby
Put my own gas in my own car
I can buy my own shoe collection
I've been blessed thus far
I can kill the spider above my bed
Although it's hard because I'm scared
I can even stain and polyurethane
But some things just don't change
I need you, yeah...
Sometimes so hard to say....
I need you...
Some things remain.
I can buy my own groceries, baby
Get my hair tight, my nails right
I can floss my own bling bling
Write the words to the songs I sing
I can even raise the child we'll make
Make sure he's loved and knows what God gave
I can teach him how to walk and stand
But he needs you to learn how to be a man
We need you...
So hard to say...
We need you...
Some things don't change...
I could be a Congresswoman or a garbage woman
A police officer or a carpenter
I could be a doctor and a lawyer and a mother and a "Good God,
Woman what you done to me!?" kind of lover I could be
I could be a computer analyst
The queen with the nappy hair raisin' a fist
Or I could be much more and a myriad of this
Hot as the summer, sweet as the first kiss
And even though I could do all of these things...
I need you.
And even though I can do all of these things...
We need you...we need you, we need you.
And even though I can do all these things...by my damn self!
I need you...I do, I do, I do, I do.
And even though I can do all of these...here things...I need you...we need you...
