my women, to all my black women
t.a.m.i.
uh

dear tami,
my heart bleeds for you
words on a page, my calm and my rage
beauty that's undescribed, we coincide in one vibe
given the rhythm that makes me come alive and I-ve
been thinking about this for awhile
when I mention my love for you
feeling like a child inside
fortified by the image of your face
see she's the one that sat a nigga down and laced me
I remember you as a little girl
daddy was gone, had never been in your world
mother was struggling, three-job juggling
you seemed oblivious like it wasn't nothin'
Tami shined with her brilliance, bounced with resiliance
worked with the cards that you deal with
life was hard and I was too young to see
you had a crush on me, that was dumb to me
I just wanted to run the streets
hollar at the hoes, drink 4-0's
but when I take a moment and think
I sink into the ink and begin imagining
her strength and how it's making me weak
I never thought I woulda thought it was me
but when I close my eyes and get a vision of love
she's all that I see
ghetto diamond, free from confinement
sparks in my mind lit plains in my heart
the part that is...

Tami, the only one that understand me
days and nights I count the ways she remind me
of dreams and things my inspiration brings
into a world so crazy

I look in your eyes and see a woman rising
all of the guys been tryin' to get between your thighs
an' true lies they tell, but your innocense hides
they would've never guessed you were so wise
I feel blessed to be able to see the part of you that's more special
I remember the stress, you passed the test
plus you never needed to fuss, through the strife and toil
you taught me how to keep my head high, now my life is yours
and I apologize for the things I did to cause you pain
I SPEAK not these words in vain
my days & nights are spent trying to put my name in lights
convinced mommy raised me right
it only makes sense that you would be the one for me
you been with others but I know you're savin' some for me
you ain't mine, I would never try to contain you
let you shine, and with this, I put it all on the line
I find that it's...

Tami, the only one that understand me
days and nights I count the ways she remind me
of dreams and things my inspiration brings into a world so crazy

At night we take flight on into the morning
to the days first light, we blaze the purple haze
count the ways the world rotates and stays crazy but never faze me
we travel the maze days by stars, lust and expensive cars
material dreams, results of extensive scars
nobody knows but you when the doors are closed
my wars unfold and view these stories told and true

Tami, the only one that understand me
days and nights I count the ways she remind me
of dreams and things my inspiration brings into a world so crazy
