[Chrous: Heart]
I've Been Lonely
I've Been Waiting For You
I'm Pretending
And Thats All I Can Do
(Thats All I Can Do Mama)
The Love I'm Sending Ain't Making It Through To Your Heart
(I Hope You Hear Me)

[Verse 1:]
Since I've Lost You, I'm Lost Too
Nigga Feelin' Like He At The Bottom Like A Horseshoe
Sorry For The Trouble That I Put You And Your Heart Through
God Knows That I'd Do Anything For A Part 2,
Or To
Be Prayin' For The Day you Come Back To Me, Sayin' That You Forgive Me
Give Me Another Chance, I'm Needin' It Like A Kidney
I Don't Wanna Advance, Give Me Back Her Hands
Give Me Back Her Touch, I Don't Ask For Much
But I Fucked Up, I Know I Fucked Up, I Admit I Fucked Up
But Everybody Fuck Up, Now This Other Nigga Luck Up
Tell him Me And My clique Don't Give A Fuck
Cuz uh We From New Orleans, She Was From Georgia
She Was My Down Chick, I Was Her Soldier
I Was Her Gangster, She Was My Shoulder
You Were The Pistol To My Holster.. Bang

[Chorus: Heart]
[Fades In]
You've Been Hiding, Never Letting It Show
Always Trying, To Keep It Under Control
(I See You Hidin' It Mama)
You Got It Down, And Your Well On Your Way To The Top
(Keep Doin' Your Thing)
But There Is Something You Forgot

[Verse 2:]
You Forgot About The House, You Forgot About The Ring
I Remember Everything, I Just Wanna Hear You Sing
I Remember The Love, Right After The Fights
You Can't Tell Me You Don't Remember Those Nites

And If I Would Cry, You Would Cry Twice
To Me You Are The Brightest Star Under The Sunlight
See Take Away My Title, Take Away My Stripes
You Give Me Back My Girl And You Give Me Back My Life
Give Me Back My Girl And You Give Me Back My Life
See This Is Just A Nightmare, So I Blink Twice
Open Up My Eyes Hopin' She Be In My Sight
I Remember The Time, I Wish I Could Bring It Back
What She Mean To Me, Is What I Mean To Rap

[Chorus: Heart]
You've Been Hiding, Never Letting It Show
Always Trying
(I See You Hidin' It Mama)
To Keep It Under Control
(But I Know You Know)
You Got It Down
(I Know You Do)
And Your Well On Your Way To The Top
(I Wish You And Yours Nothing But Happiness Shawty)

[Verse 3:]
But I Hope You Haven't Forgot Me Up In The Livin' Room Watchin' Sportscenter
You Were Cookin' Dinner, I Was such A Sinner, But The Lord Is A Forgiver
You Know They Say If You Pray, Then You Can Get Your Blessings Ordered And Delivered
And Your Boyfriend Is Not Like Me
Ma' You Even Went And Got A Teardrop Like Me
I Remember We Would Sit At Home All Day
You Called Me Butter, I Called You Bay
My Momma Asked About You, My Partners Did Too
I Know Your Daughter Will Be So Amazing Like You
And I Know You Probably Wish You Never Met Me, And I Just Wish You Never Forget Me
And Let Me Say, Please Don't Worry About The Women I Have Been With
No Engagement Can Amount To Your Friendship
And I Hope That Nigga Know He Got A Queen, And All I Can Do Is Dream... Damn

[Chorus: Heart]
I've Been Lonely
I've Been Waiting For You
I'm Pretending, And Thats All I Can Do
The Love I'm Sending Ain't Making It Through To Your Heart

    General CommentReally amazing and deep song, shows Lil wayne is one of the best rappers out there right now.

    Seriously, its a really sad song, lines like
    I Know Your Daughter Will Be So Amazing Like You
    really show he cares about this woman.

    General CommentThis is one of my absolute lil wayne favorites. He must deeply care about this person, because he's literally pouring his heart out. The lines are amazing.

    One of the best is "and i know you probably wish you never met me, and i just wish you never forget me."

    General Commentyou can hear a streak of pain and regret in this song
    "but i fucked up, i know i fucked up, i admit i fucked up..."
    lil waynes very good with his words and explores different feelings through each of his songs which just shows he is not your typical rapper.

    General CommentNivea being The Dreams (r&b singer/songwriter) ex-husband... Did anybody catch the fuckin line at the end of the 3rd verse?

    General CommentThis song is about Nivea, in the first verse he says the girl is from Georgia while he is from New Orleans. Nivea is from Georgia, where as his ex-wife is from New Orleans since they are high school sweethearts and all. Nivea has a daughter too, with The Dream, so that's why mentions that the woman's daughter will be great as well.

    Just thought that needed some clarification :)
