there's something about mary j

I know who I am. I am not perfect. I'm not the most beautiful woman in the world. But I'm one of them. Mary J. Blige

I know who I am. I am not perfect. I’m not the most beautiful woman in the world. But I’m one of them.
Mary J. Blige

 

that’s it in a nutshell. she is just something else. i have not been a fan forever, but i have been a fan for some time now. she is real. she is down to earth. she is easily relate-able. i don’t have to guess who she is. it’s pretty clear. what is surprising though are a couple of things. the first is how she remains relevant. after the success, the ups and the downs, she continues to be a testament to telling the truth. if there was ever a symbol of healthy growing up, mary j is “it”.

shine on mary. shine on.

“Whole Damn Year”

Tryna find a way to explain this
Why you can’t touch me tonight?
I can feel you’re getting impatient
But I really can’t let you inside
Bad, how deep the pain is
Or you just couldn’t believe
And yes I’m good on the surface
But I’m a mess, I’m a mess underneath
See winter took most of my heart
And Spring punched right in the stomach
Summer came looking for blood
And by autumn, I was left with nothing

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It’s been about five years
Gon’ take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon’ take long long year
Gon’ take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It’s been a bad five years
