Talib Kweli:
I thought I fell in love one with a girl who loved blunts and got fronts
And she made me rise above lust
I thought I fell in love again with this one chick
Body so thick it was hard not toÖ.
I fell in love just one more time after that
Shorty had me ready to settle down and make a habitat
The sad fact is I wasnít ready to give up my freedom
So I let em go pretended that I donít need em
So here I sit at the bar amongst the star-gazers
Caught in the cross-hairs the target of a heart breaker
The radio is playing ďneither one of usĒ by Gladys
Itís so ironic I chuckleÖ.
I reminisce on all the chicks that I ran through
Now Iím dealing with this Black Magic Woman whoís
Stringin me along like the guitar on the song Iím rappin on
I ainít do the math a Libra and a Capricorn

I had to say goodbye to Miss January
She had a hold of my mind for so long
I learned a lesson in life from Miss January
The weight left on my heart is less heavy
When the first light shines
The first light shines in June

Mr J Medeiros:
Yo, true love got the power to change any circumstance
I knew we were far from the same but still I took a chance
Wish I could have looked in advance to your advances
Knowing I'm the book which you read to your advantage
I understand it's not like we planned with the worst intentions
Taken for granted I was stranded in your first impressions
I know it hurts to question but were we a curse or blessing
I guess it's worth confessing maybe then well learn our lesson
Searching for your attention hoping you were doing the same,
Pursuing in vain, knowing that only you were entertained
Using me and I was new to the pain
Cus rejection I hadn't meet him though I knew him by name
True I grew from the pain and the day where I'd pay anything
Standing there like John Cusack from "Say Anything"
Planning on for you to call back but then it never rings
There were so many things there were so many signs
And now I'm chasing wings knowing it's a waste of time
Until my God reminds me of what I truly need
I take a look behind just before your beauty leaves
To get a glimpse of you hoping that you see me too
And now we staring at two people that we never knew
And prolly never know hoping I'll forever grow
Into the one who finally gave the strength to let you go
Snd change my ideas of what true love is
I wipe my eyes clear and rise above this
