Angie Martinez – Breathe lyrics

[Angie Martinez]
Yo, yo, yo, uhh, uhh, yo, yo, whoo whoo whoo whoo, yo, uhh, hey!
Sometimes you gotta, catch yo' breath and,
All the time you gotta watch yo' step and,
Catch me all on yo' neck, stressin' 'bout "What you doin' next?"
And I ain't got much left; tolerance wit' a hoop-la
La hodienda no se para nunca, yeah
They give it to you but I,
Keep it movin' while I'm runnin' wit' the rap race
But I need a little damn space, to breathe
I gotta just do me; why I always gotta be s*** huh?
Would you mind when you spill it like me?
In a pair of Air Max sweat pants hoodie huh?
Would ya, get off my back, c'mon, let a nigga relax
Cause I'm, all woman now, hear me roar
Right now I'm 'bout to hit the door,
So I can parle', it's my day, 'bout to pick up my girls at the highway
Gotta get away, gotta do it now, gotta walk into the sun, ah ah ah

[Chorus: Angie Martinez + singer]
Gotta be free, gotta do me
Gotta get away, get away
Gotta gimmie some time to breathe
Gotta walk into the sun, ah ah ah
C'mon ladies come ride wit' me
Gotta get away, get away
Gotta relax your body!
Gotta walk into the sun, ah ah ah
I just really need some time to ease my mind and let my spirit gooo!

Gonna fly.. C'mon..
How many women cook and clean, wash the clothes
Work a job, come home - mop the floors, wash the sofas
Nah, no time for that, besides, ya only rest when it's time to wack
Plus that's that time you can be the gent,
Gettin' ya legs tight, gettin' ya head right
Doin' it every night in summer time almost
You wanna ass lookin' firm when they come up close
One of single mother types wit' a couple of kids?
Nuttin' come before them, don't give a fuck who it is
You a proud ass woman, never cry for help
Been doin' it for years all by yourself
For cryin' out loud, can ya get your props?
Wanna pull your hair out cause the shit don't stop and,
Ya nigga wanna stress, gettin' no rest
Takin' no breaths, it's pms
Wanna know when do I get my day
Wanna pick up my girls at the highway
Gotta get away, gotta do it now, gotta walk into the sun, ah ah ah


Yo necesito un poco de paz.. En mi vida!
Necesito un poco de paz.. En mi vida!
Some times a girl just wants to be free
From what you think of me baby please
Get up off my back and give a girl some space
Because we're livin' in a big bad place
I just really need some time to have a little piece of mind and
Breathe, breeeaathe!
