Mary J. Blige – In The Meantime lyrics

In the meantime, what do you do
When there's no one left but you
And you're alone
How do you feel when the one you love
Doesn't, doesn't seem real
Do you run, or do you try to heal
The hurt inside
But oh, but in the meantime

[1] - I have found within myself
Everything I need to get by
Cuz I
Know what to do in the meantime
Continue to love you

There is no need for you to fear
For I am here, I'll be right here
All of your life
And I am willing and able to pull you
Pull you through, through the storm
That might await you on the outside
And all of your fears and your doubts will no longer exist
Because God has granted you the greatest wage
And He's done the same for me
Cuz right now, you're all I need

[Repeat 1]

In the meantime what do you do
When there is no one, love but you
And you're alone, oh (But in the meantime)
In the meantime, oh (But in the meantime)
What do you do in the meantime (But in the meantime)
There is no need for you to have no fear (But in the meantime)
For I am here (But in the meantime)
But in the meantime (But in the meantime)
But in the meantime (But in the meantime)
Oh I'm willing and I'm able (But in the meantime)
To pull you through the storm
Pull you through the storm (But in the meantime)
In the mean (But in the meantime)
