Shalone – Step Up lyrics

[HOOK]

I don't even think you know what love is (Don’t Even) (Don’t Even)
I don't even think you know what love is (Don’t Even) (Don’t Even)
And that's why you won't Step Up (Step Up) (Step Up)
And that’s why you won't Step Up
Don't even think you know what love is

[Speaking]

I pray for the eyes of man to see one besides oneself
A man’s eyes not even suppose to see oneself
Unless your looking in the mirror
And you ain’t never took a look at the man in the mirror
For what your suppose to
My eyes can’t cry tears
They cry words
Words of the unspoken
By those that have no words,
All the mouth
But no voices

[Verse 1]

Time to piss the man with power off
Won’t you care about the people for a change
Used to wish you had the power
Now you got the power
What you do with it is all the same
I don’t hear no politicians anymore
Claiming they gon’ bring us change
I don’t see no change in my peoples pockets
All i see is their pain
What did you do with the change Mr. Whitehouse man?
Did you give it to people that need it
Or it’s in the bank Mr. White Houseman?
Is it the politics or is it your ways Mr. White Houseman?
Are we being played
Like is it a game Mr. Whitehouse Man? (Huh) (Look)
Martin Luther said he had a dream
He dreamed of unity amongst the people (yeah)
All i see is people going through it
Bunch of eulogy, and then the sequel (ay)
Mom and Daddy always fighting
Cuz the bill got em’ on the damn edge
Landlord ain’t trying to lose the house
So he’s gonna need his damn bread
Mom and Daddy up in church now
Praying lord help me out the worst now
These say-soers on they high horse
Need to bring em’ back down to earth now
You don’t care a little bit
If you cared a little bit
It would go a long way
Always talking bout they bout the people
How about the people first now? (huh)

[HOOK]

I don't even think you know what love is (Don’t Even) (Don’t Even)
I don't even think you know what love is (Don’t Even) (Don’t Even)
And that's why you won't Step Up (Step Up) (Step Up)
And that’s why you won't Step Up
Don't even think you know what love is

[Verse 2]

We don’t think about the people at the bottom
Watchu think they gon’ through
When the baby need food
Crying at them, what you think they gon’ do
People People you gon’ be a leader
Leader Lead them just don’t lead them to the wrong move
All the coke you got in the hood
Watchu think they gon’ move
Why you judging he don’t got a choice
Lock em up so he ain’t got a voice
Tell his baby he ain’t but a deadbeat
What to pass, he ain’t got a torch
Baby momma ain’t go to court
Bet the system got him paying for it
Big business, you ain’t paying for it, right?

[Hook x2]

And that's why you won't Step Up (Step Up) (Step Up)
And that’s why you won't Step Up
Don't even think you know what love is
