WALE


Diary Lyrics

[Intro:]
If I told you I wanted to talk to you, you know
You think I'm try'na holla at you
And maybe I am but,
You wouldn't hear me out anyways would you?

[Verse 1: Wale]
Rather lose love than to move on
Never knowing what it feel like
Short days, long nights
By the phone, no call
Need a clear mind 'cause I been blind
Got me goin' down that road
Heart made of stone
Far away from home
Black woman, c-c-cold
Every problem that you ever had with another man I gotta face
Started off on thin ice
I'm still here, but I can't skate
Slow sink
Can't breathe
No remorse
Don't think
Listen to your friend, get another man for a minute then repeat
Queen, you deserve the title but she rejects what I give
While she nurse the wounds by them
Tried them, didn't work
Got impossible standards
Nothing I'm a do's gonna work
Diary of a black girl

[Chorus: Marsha Ambrosius]
I wonder why I sit and cry
Wish I could shed all these tears
I'm down and out
I keep on moving and tryna get out
I don't know how to move on
Where I went wrong
Wish I could live with no fear
So down and out
I'll keep it moving and tryna get out
Somehow

[Verse 2: Wale]
Raised by a momma who, who,
Hates her baby father so, so
She don't have a problem with, with,
Saying fuck a nigga quick, quick,
I'm just tryna be the one who never run, but you run away from me
Girlfriend's man cheat, cheat
Why not me the same thing
She can't see in me, what I see in her
This pain she inherit can't be reversed
I can't even stay living in the shade of all the motherfuckers that played ya
The irony in that is that I ain't even that, but you put it in those pages
Wife, you deserve the label
But you been hurt before so you don't feel you're able,
Tried them didn't work
Got impossible standards
Nothing that I ever do work
Diary of a black girl

[Chorus:]
I wonder why I sit and cry
Wish I could shed all these tears
I'm down and out
I keep on moving and tryna get out
I don't know how to move on
Where I went wrong
Wish I could live with no fear
So down and out
I keep it moving and tryna get out
Somehow

[Spoken: Wale]
See all I wanna do is be relevant
Just tell me that I ever meant anything
Or that you could ever see me and you in another light
But it's like the dark woman endores in the darkest nights by the wrong man
See all of them have made you incapable of a first impression
What it do is I channel my aggression with no cable or antenna
Just intentions to impress you, if capable
Hoping that the material possesions can materialise to a better you
Cars, nothing I drive can drive you out of this frame of mind for such an ugly picture
And money, nothing I buy can buy more time for your ears to tell your heart to listen to it
"Diamonds, a girl's best friend" is what they say
But, believe me, with the right allegience shorty you gonna shine anyways
And everyday that goes by is a couple more lines in her diary
The day before is better than the present
So anyone presented in her presence is doing these life sentences
No key for release
No reason to be around
Her minds in the clouds
She writes it all down
In her diary,

[Chorus:]
I wonder why I sit and cry
Wish I could shed all these tears
I'm down and out
I keep on moving and tryna get out
I don't know how to move on
Where I went wrong
Wish I could live with no fear
I'm down and out
I'll keep it moving and tryna get out
Somehow
Somehow
Somehow
