I Believe In Me (Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes)

This jam is dedicated to moi That's right you guys it's just for... Me, I believe in me 'Cause I take care of me It took so long to see All I really need is me Faith and family Has finally made me see No matter what I face All I need is me Everybody says they know me better than I know myself But I don't know nobody else has felt what I felt Did what I did or been where I been But have to defend myself again and again Let it end where it begins Who cares what the cause is Too many bosses cause divorces And I don't take losses Well I play with a team But I'm a Diana Ross and not a Supreme You think you got me all figured out Ohh so I'm so shallow The only thing I'm tryin' to get is a bigger house No part of my need is a company Where I can hire my own people To live out their dreams So tell me What's happenin' to all of ya'll people with low self-esteem What you want me to cry on your shoulder So you can turn around and laugh and talk about it when it's over Me, I believe in me 'Cause I take care of me It took so long to see All I really need is me Faith and family Has finally made me see No matter what I face All I need is me I done sold 30 mill, dated, then made you want it When it got too convenient, I just gave it up I don't need the stress I don't need the pain I do need the checks But don't need the games Ohh my how could him and I be the same When the house burnt down Only I made the blame When the money got funny, I took it to court When most of y'all scrubs Wouldn't have even fought it When the group had issues, I laid in thought Corrected the bad news, I heard in interviews How many of you really know Lisa? Not many! It's not contrary, it's fear, I don't know you either I'm responsible for more than you'll ever know or see So many things you don't know happened because of me From Blaque, to the designs of the stage, that was me So how could any of ya'll be mad at me? Me, I believe in me 'Cause I take care of me It took so long to see All I really need is me Faith and family Has finally made me see No matter what I face All I need is me Everybody says all they want is the truth Well the truth is I still got love for my group But you don't really want the truth when it's concernin' you You want to hear that no one's doin' better than you You love to hear the pain You love to hear the struggle You love to know that paradise Has got trouble The only trouble we ever had Is you bein' involved You gettin' involved where you don't belong When my faith started to waver it was like I was done I felt like Brian McKnight I was "Back At One" The only one that was The only one that ever The only one I need The one and only me Because if I hadn't told you it was on different planes You would think that I meant our flights ain't the same My only crime was I was so blind Didn't know I had everything I wanted all the time Me, I believe in me 'Cause I take care of me It took so long to see All I really need is me Faith and family Has finally made me see No matter what I face All I need is me Me, I believe in me 'Cause I take care of me It took so long to see All I really need is me Faith and family Has finally made me see No matter what I face All I need is me Me, I believe in me 'Cause I take care of me It took so long to see All I really need is me Faith and family Has finally made me see No matter what I face All I need is me
