Ashanti – R.I.P. lyrics
[Verse 1]
Your hands should be covered in blood
By the way you ripped up my heart
It feels like I swallowed a blade
Every time I say, every time I say
Not an email, not a text, no call
Nothing left, just me sitting in this bed alone
That's how we started unraveling
Boy, you stripped me to the bone

[Chorus]
Something small as
Picking up the phone may seem so small to you
When I’m on the phone
I don’t hear two words from you
Everything that's going through my head
Where he at? where he been? who he with?
Why he ain't hit me yet?
And then I start to manifest, what's next?
Is he having sex? Is he using latex?
And is he gonna bring something home to me?
Why he giving these bitches the privilege of something to say?

[Verse 2]
I put on my black dress, I put on my black heels
I got two dozen roses in my arms
I got on my black shades to hide all of my tears
I gotta say goodbye to this love gone wrong
I think it's best that we lay this thing to rest
I think it's best that we lay this thing to rest
I think it's best that we lay this thing to rest
I think it's best, I think it's best

[Verse 3]
Not even karma is enough to get you back for what you did
It's like your love is poison and you've infected me
It's running up through my veins, affecting my every day
I wish I had the power to erase your face from my brain

[Chorus]
Something small as
Picking up the phone may seem so small to you
When I’m on the phone
I don’t hear two words from you
Everything that's going through my head
Where he at? where he been? who he with?
Why he ain't hit me yet?
And then I start to manifest, what's next?
Is he having sex? Is he using latex?
And is he gonna bring something home to me?
Why he giving these bitches the privilege of something to say?

[Chorus 2]
I put on my black dress, I put on my black heels
I got two dozen roses in my arms
I got on my black shades to hide all of my tears
I gotta say goodbye to this love gone wrong
I think it's best that we lay this thing to rest
I think it's best that we lay this thing to rest
I think it's best that we lay this thing to rest
I think it's best, I think it's best

[Bridge]
You promised me forever
You said we'd be together
You would never turn your back on us
Now I wanna thank you
For forcing me to get through this
Didn't recognize my very own strength
Now I'mma stick out my chest and I'mma throw my head back
And I'mma put a smile on my face

[Chorus 2]
I put on my black dress, I put on my black heels
I got two dozen roses in my arms
I got on my black shades to hide all of my tears
I gotta say goodbye to this love gone wrong
It's time to lower this in the ground
I'm gonna cover it up and put my head down
I'm gonna say my very last goodbye
I'm gonna wipe these tears for the very last time
