Good Woman Down

Text písně Good Woman Down

[Intro:]

In my life

I've seen

It all

Now it's time

For me

To pass

On this

Knowledge to you

All my sisters

My troubled sisters

This is my

Gift to you



[1st Verse:]

Been many days

Couldn't take

The pain

Felt like

I should take

My life away

See it everyday

In every other

Young sister's face

(Young sister's face)

See'em cryin' out

Life full of doubt

Runnin' in the streets

No self esteem

Thinkin' that

Used to be me

What a shame



[B-Sect:]

And life

Is a mutha

It's hard

To sit back

And see

The same thing

That happened to me

Happen to you

This ain't love

But here's

The love

I wanna give to you



It dosen't

Matter what

They say or do

Don't let'em

Get to you

Don't be afraid

You can, you can

You can breakthrough

Take what

I've been through

To see that

You can't

Hold a good

Woman down



Went through

The same point

Of givin' up

I-I felt

Like I had enough

Went to the edge

Of the ledge

But I didn't jump

"My Life"

Will sum it up

You can't

Hold a good

Woman down



[2nd Verse:]

When I used to see

My daddy beat

My mother down

Down to her feet

I used to say

That ain't gon'

Never be me

(Never be me)

Now look at you

Bruised up

From him

Girl recognize

You're better then

Him tellin' you

That he'll never hit

You again

Girl don't cry



[Repeat B-Sect 1x]



[Repeat Chorus 1x]



[Bridge:]

Through your changes

I will hold your hand

Use my songs

As remedies

Whenever you're feelin'

Down or blue

I'll be there for you

Trust

And know

That I've been

Where you're at

Seen the things

That you can see

Lookin' at you

Resembles me

But you gotta

Hold your own



[Repeat Chorus 1x]



[Vamp:]

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

You can't hold me



Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

Can't hold me

Down

You can't hold me



[Outro:]

There you have it

I'm still with you

My sisters

My troubled sisters

I still have troubles, too

You're not alone

I'll always be there

For you

Rock on



You can't hold

A good woman down
