Blige, Mary J - Thank You Lyrics




It's funny how you think you know someone
Until they pull the switch on you, ooh
You never, ever think they do you wrong
Until one day they flip on ya, hey, hey, ooh
That's the time you know they hurt you bad
Because you know you let your guard down (did it all for you, yeah)
Oh, Lord, you know you heard me
You were so unworthy
And you know you didn't deserve me
I was lost but now I'm found

So thank you for showing me who you really are
'Cause up 'til now, I wouldn't believe
You would go this far
See you tryna hurt me
What was deep inside but that wasn't you
Oh, but thank you, baby
Really thank you, thank you, baby
'Cause I know the truth

I must admit you caught me by surprise
When you showed me your true colors, yeah
I can't believe I ever trusted you
Considered you my friend and my lover, woo
I think of how I went so hard for you
Gave my heart to you
Went to war for you
I got scars for you
Would have did time behind bars for you, yeah

Thank you, baby, really thank you, baby
'Cause now I finally, now I know the truth
Thank you for showing me who you really are
Oh 'cause up 'til now, I wouldn't believe
You would go this far
See you tryna hurt me
What was deep inside but that wasn't you
Oh, but thank you, baby
Really thank you, thank you, baby
'Cause I know the truth

I know they say the truth hurts but a lie kills
I shouldn't known that before, you ain't for real
Mind yourself, oh, I'm so mad
But I thank you, thank you, thank you
When people show you who they are, we should believe them
How could I let it get this far? I could have seen it
But now I see the light and I'm alright
And I thank you, thank you, thank you

  7. DiddyKongVsLuigi

    Boooo! Stop playing at my Ross Dress for Less. You only add to the depression, and in some cases, kill my high. This song belongs at a coffee bar.

  8. Tremaine Dudley

    I agree with everyone on this album. This is a really good album by Mary J Blige but the sad part is the Grammys was sleeping on this album. This album was not nominated for nothing at 2018 Grammy's. That's okay all is well she still had a great year for 2018 with the Walk of Fame star the icon award new movie role and i can go on and on with more stuff she received this year
