The Other Half Lyrics

Every man deserves a woman
Every woman deserves a man
So, I'm about to ask
I have feel the strange vibration
And I had a lot of patience
But where is my other half?
Can somebody say? Can somebody tell?
I love her, will I love her?
Can't you hear my pray? Many many days
I've wondered, will I wonder?
I wonder why she left me
I wonder why she left me
(Bring it back)
I wonder why (yeah), I wonder why

I pray for my niggas surviving the pen'
Demons taking my friends
Boys pretending they're men
Bitch, don't fuck up my zen
My homie told me you violated a body
And shawty, that put me on ten
She beggin' me now to add it to the list
Of the feelings I gotta keep in
Ain't that the root of the drama?
How we just lock out the trauma
Fighting within, fighting without
Fighting, divide it and conquer
Like God didn't make us compatible
They wanted to turn us to animals
We lynching, that Willie Lynch manual
Real niggas are back from sabbatical (I wonder why)
Jaded on mental, it meant to us
The reason our family slipping up
'Cause our women won't submit to us
You let a bitch run a crib and us other men
Say it's the bitch in us
We dominate to overcompensate
Our bravado dripping with the cowardice
Our marching power feeling powerless
Like I gotta get my niggas outta this Hell
Outta this spell
From the pill, on the powder, fish scales
From a rapper with the loudest tip drills
We don't win with no amount of pistols
In a battle on the soul-ology
Fresh we got that kinda dough, properly
Where can niggas really own property?
Motherland be like our own prophecy

We can see eye to eye
They know it's by design
That in the dark we shine
And that's the bottom line
When we're together, we stay strong
But they don't want us to last long
We can see eye to eye
We can see eye to eye, yeah (bring it back)
Forgive me for the side I've shown
Can't control this other half here on my own, yeah (yeah)
I said forgive me for the side I've shown
Can't control this other half here on my own, yeah, yeah, yeah

Why she left me, shit got way too messy
Show my mask to the world
Show my worst to my bestie
You were like Jidenna
Got my Poppa temper
Don't fuck with my dinner
Touch it, and you die like, yeah
That's the rage in a age coming to a end
'Cause we must be greater men than we ever been
You know, you know we don't break, we bend
We resilient
They studying our genes
We the creme de la creme

We can see eye to eye
They know it's by design
That in the dark we shine
And that's the bottom line
When we're together, we stay strong
But they don't want us to last long
We can see eye to eye
We can see eye to eye, yeah
Forgive me for the side I've shown (oh yeah)
Can't control this other half here on my own, yeah (oh yeah)
I said forgive me for the side I've shown, yeah (oh yeah)
Can't control this other half here on my own, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Yeah)

Inside your window, mmh
Inside your window
Remedies a part of you, inside of me
Don't forget shedding tears sitting on woman's knee
All we need's empathy and this recipe
Close your eyes, feel the shoes, could fit on your feet, yeah
I could see through, to the real you
Got the sharp side, like a hawk eye
I don't want your skin, but from within
Pharaoh in your eyes with the thick skin

Inside your window, ahh
Inside your window
But ain't it amazing?
That it's still love we're receiving
Oh, and we could fill up the spaces
Oh, and piece it all back to one
And it's amazing (oh it's amazing), oh
It's still love we're receiving
Yeah, and we could fill up the spaces
Oh, and piece it all back to one (piece it all back to one, mmh)
And it's amazing, whoa, it's still love we're receiving
Oh, and we could fill up the spaces
Oh, and piece it all back to one (piece it all back to one)
And it's amazing, mmh, no, no, and it's amazing (ohh)
And it's amazing, ahh, ahh
