GONE ALREADY If you ever loved someone who never took the time to know you. Nothing that you say ever gets through. Listening, but they don’t hear you. You’re just going through the motions. Every day is so monotonous. Baby I’m just being honest. It was over before we started. I was gone… [Chorus] Gone already. Gone already. I understand now you’re ready. But I already been gone, I already been gone. Gone already. Gone already. Nothing else you can tell me. Cause I already been gone. I already been gone. I was feeling like a dead man walking. Numb from all the pain you’re causing. Hoping that things would change, but you never gave me that option. There’s so many things you don’t do to make me over look the wrong. This is not the way that love should be. I guess you’re not the man for me… [Chorus] Gone already. Gone already. I just didn’t know you’re ready. But I already been gone, I already been gone. Gone already. Gone already. Nothing else you can tell me. Cause I already been gone. I already been gone. Packed my bags, made up my mind, broke that lease and left the keys behind. Hoping I could make it disappear. I could be a million miles from here. Obligation made me stay, as long as I did it that’s my mistake. When I know that I’m already gone… [Chorus] Gone already. Gone already. I just didn’t know you’re ready. But I already been gone, I already been gone. Gone already. Gone already. Nothing else you can tell me. Cause I already been gone. I already been gone. If you every loved someone who never took the time to know you… Going through the motions, everyday is so monotonous… Already been gone… Produced by Ivan “Orthodox” Barias & Carvin “Ransum” Haggins for Karma Productions & Faith Evans Additional Production by Johnnie “Smurf” Smith for Home Cooking Productions Written by F.

LIL MO & ESTELLE Nobody knows the troubled I’ve seen, nobody knows what it’s like to be me Nobody knows that the reason I sing, is to speak life to my reality I wake up each day at quarter to eight can’t be late got kids to raise got money to make got bills to pay and dreams to chase Even though I fly first class VIP pass caviar and champagne fills my glass Living that life I’m popping them tags but I still can’t catch a cab I’m just trying to get along in this world on my own Cause I’m just trying to get along in this world on my own (Estelle) It’s a troubled world that we’re living in A crazy world that I know you feel it spinning in I know we’re trying to live right but troubles all around me I don’t get arrested now I’m lucky that I got me And all these buildings falling down I wonder how much longer this earth will be around I’m scared to have a child and bring him in this plate cause We don’t know how much more of this about to damage Imagine if this place that Lennon said exists Imagine if every child had somewhere to live I wanna do some more than just imagining But for now I’ll take a get by and wish it to the wind And I’m just trying to get along in this world on my own (repeart) Produced by Chucky Thompson & Faith Evans Additional production: Brad Todd Written by F.
