Jennifer Lopez Feat. NaS – I'm Gonna Be Alright lyrics

Oh, yes
This for you, girl, yo

I took you from the projects, put the best clothes in ya closet
Like Ginger from "Casino" and now you a pro
We was like Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe
All ya jealous girlfriends hatin', waitin'

So I put the cars in yo hand
All I know is Nas was yo man, it was so real, boats and sixes
Special Japanese chefs makin' home cooked dishes
Plenty trips, invisible sets, you know what you missin'

Money, cars for a while
Walked around with a smile
But deep inside, I could hear
Voices telling me, "This ain't right"

Don't you know, it's not for you
I always knew what I had to do
But it's hard to get away
'Cause I love you, I just got to say

I used to say I didn't do it but I did it
I said telling everybody that I wasn't with it
Though it brings tears to my eyes, I could feel it
And I know inside I'ma be alright

Said I didn't do it but I did it
I said telling everybody that I wasn't with it
Though it brings tears to my eyes, I could feel it
And that voice inside says I'm gonna be alright

Friends of mine say to me
Say you got control over me
You're not alone, I played my part
I saw the way you were from the start

'Cause I expect so much from you
You had a girl when I first met you
Did the best that you could do
Now I realize I can't change you

I used to say I didn't do it but I did it
I said telling everybody that I wasn't with it
Though it brings tears to my eyes, I could feel it
And I know inside I'ma be alright

Said I didn't do it but I did it
I said telling everybody that I wasn't with it
Though it brings tears to my eyes, I could feel it
And that voice inside says I'm gonna be alright

Said I wouldn't walk away, some days I want to stay
But leaving you is what I need to do to be okay
Never thought it would be true, be leaving without you
So now it's time for me to make that move

Huh, check it
Yo, nobody understands me, I'm dealin' with pressure
My peoples is locked in a jail cell with no bail stressin'
Guess, it's the life of a kingpin, Rap Stephen King, rock bling
Like neon lights, we gon' be alright but it's like you feelin' lesser

Claim I'm actin' like a retard, writin' me and my boys
We start fights with will, I'm in charge
You scream I'm in the streets all night or where was I at
Ya found light brown hairs on my hat, I'm slow caught

I used to say I didn't do it but I did it
I said telling everybody that I wasn't with it
Though it brings tears to my eyes, I could feel it
And I know inside I'ma be alright

Said I didn't do it but I did it
I said telling everybody that I wasn't with it
Though it brings tears to my eyes, I could feel it
And that voice inside says I'm gonna be alright
