(Young Jeezy):
It's M.C. and Y.J.
Another hit, okay
We lookin' fine
Takin' off
Saw us on a runway
On any given Sunday
Monday, Tuesday
They try to confuse me
I never let 'em use me

(Mariah Carey):
I was a girl
You was a man
I was too young
To understand
I was naive
I just believed
Everything
That you told me
Said you were strong
Protecting me
Then I found out
That you were weak
Keepin' me there
Under your thumb
Cause you were scared
That I'd become much
More than you could handle
Shining like a chandelier
That decorated
Every room inside
The private hell we built
And I dealt with it
Like a kid
I wished
I could fly away

But instead
I kept my tears inside
Cause I knew if I started
I'd keep crying
For the rest of my life
With you
I finally built up
The strength to walk away
Don't regret it
But I still live
With the side effects

Wakin' up
Scared some nights
Still dreaming 'bout
The violent times
Still little protective
'Bout the people
That I let inside
Still little defensive
Thinkin' folk be
Tryna run my life
Still little
Depressed inside
I fake a smile and deal
With the side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)

It didn't stop
No one was there
Couldn't be real
Had to keep quiet
Once in awhile
Put up a fight
It's just too much
Night after night
After awhile
I would just lie
You was dead wrong
Said you was right
Did what I could
Just to survive
Couldn't believe
This was my life
Flickering like a candle
Do my best to handle
Sleeping with the enemy
Whether he was smothering
Every last part of me
So I broke away
And finally found
The strength to leave

Still kept the tears inside
Cause I knew if I started
I'd keep crying
For the rest of my life
With you
I finally built up
The strength to walk away
Don't regret it
But I still live
With the side effects

Wakin' up
Scared some nights
Still dreaming
'Bout the violent times
Still little protective
'Bout the people
That I let inside
Still little defensive
Thinkin' folk be
Tryna run my life
Still little
Depressed inside
I fake a smile and deal
With the side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)

Hey, hey, hey
Let's go

(Young Jeezy):
Hey Magnifico
Or should I say
Magnificent?
Ain't nothing worth
Your happiness
And I ain't caring
Who you're
With misery love company
So we ain't tryin'
To hang with y'all
Hurt you
If ya let 'em in
Gotta keep ya
Sucka smilin'
Keep tryin' to play
I tell him
I ain't blowin' tho
Think they want me
Outta here
I tell 'em
I ain't goin' tho
Side effects
Bbe drowsiness
Loneliness
How is this?
I think the call
It hateration
What can you
Prescribe for this?

(Mariah) (2x):
Forgive but I can't forget
Every day I deal with this
I live
With the side efffects
But I ain't gonna let them
Get the best of me

Kept my tears inside
Cause I knew
If I started
I'd keep crying
For the rest of my life
With you
I finally built up
The strength to walk away
Don't regret it
But I still live
With the side effects

Wakin' up
Scared some nights
Still dreaming
'Bout the violent times
Still little protective
'Bout the people
That I let inside
Still little defensive
Thinkin' folk be
Tryna run my life
Still little
Depressed inside
I fake a smile and deal
With the side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
Side effects
(Oh, oh)
