Mary J Blige – City Of Lights lyrics

[Verse]
Aye, yo, I grind in the day, play in the night
Shoot at you today but she stayin' the night
Light from the city, I know what the street said
There's no pity out here and he said

[Verse: Mary J. Blige)
You look like you're thinking
Something you don't wanna say (East Side)
I feel like I'm missing something
Why are you pulling away? (She smiles)

[Pre-Chorus:]
His words scream through my head like the water
I can't take anymore and I wanna melt
So deep in the night like I wanna
Back in the world again

[Chorus:]
I'm in your mind, only you're faded
This is the night, I'm tired of waiting
For once in my life, it's not complicated
It's not complicated, we're not gonna make it
Make it

[Bridge:]
Lost my baby in the city of lights
My baby in the city of lights
Lost my baby in the city of lights
My baby in the city of lights
He said

[Verse: Mary J. Blige]
Just think of the love we had
How could you throw if away?
Please, baby, just tell me something
That would make me stay! (She smiles)

[Pre-Chorus:]
His words scream through my mind like the water
I can't take anymore and I wanna melt
So deep in the night like I wanna
Back in the world again

[Chorus:]
I'm in your mind, only you're faded
This is the night, I'm tired of waiting
For once in my life, it's not complicated
It's not complicated, we're not gonna make it
Make it

[Bridge:]
Lost my baby in the city of lights
My baby in the city of lights
Lost my baby in the city of lights
My baby in the city of lights
He said

[Verse]
You see, I lost my baby somewhere in the city-o
I think I saw her somewhere in somebody video
I shouldn't even care about this girl, it's too many more
Cause I done been around the world, it's eeny, meeny, miny, moe
My show in Manhattan, she saw my paper stackin'
I never could imagine that I would see her packin'
How fashion did I bought without askin'
Relaxin' in the Aspens
I blew a million out in Vegas on the last Wednesday
I bought a ring and still her ass wouldn't stay
I thought forever we would last, but I was wrong
All the days have passed, all the hours gone

[Interlude]
Now I got it in my sight
Big city and bright lights
Fast rain, I'm gone

[Chorus x2]
I'm in your mind, only you're faded
This is the night, I'm tired of waiting
For once in my life, it's not complicated
It's not complicated, we're not gonna make it
Make it

[Bridge:]
Lost my baby in the city of lights
My baby in the city of lights
(We're not gonna make it)
Lost my baby in the city of lights
My baby in the city of lights
He said
