The Procussions - Miss January Feat. Talib Kweli (w/ lyrics) (by John12787)
"…the first light shines in June"
[Hook] I had to say goodbye to Miss January She had a hold on my mind for so long and 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
[Talib Kweli] I thought I fell in love once with a girl who loves 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 to.. 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 wasnt ready too Give up my freedom And so I let them go pretending that I dont need em So here I sit at the bar amongst the star gazers Caught in the crosshairs a target of the heart breaker The radio was playing Neither One of Us By Gladys, its so ironic I chuckled .. I reminisce on all the chicks that I ran thru Now Im dealing with this black magic one, man who Stringing me along like the guitar that Im rapping on I aint do the math, a Libra and a Capricorn
Hook: [Rez?] I had to say goodbye to Miss January She had a hold on my mind for so long and 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
[Stro?] 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 look in advance to your advances Knowing Im the book that you read to your advantage I understand its not like we planned it with the worst intentions Taken advantage, I was stranded in your first impressions I know it hurts to question, what will be a curse or blessin I guess its worth confessin, maybe then well learn our lesson Searching for your attention, hoping you were doing the same Pursuing the fame, knowing that only you were entertained Using me, and I was new to the pain Cause rejection I hadnt meet him, but I knew him by name True I grew from the pain, in the days where Id pay anything Standing there like John Cusack from Say Anything Planning on you to call back but it never rings There were so many things, there were so many signs And now Im chasing wings knowing its a waste of time Untill 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 know we staring at two people that we never knew And probably never know, hoping Ill forever grow Into the one who finally gained the strength to let you go You changed my ides of what true love is I wipe my eyes clear and rise above this
