Well I'm sure it's complicated
And I'm sure your story goes way back
But you're looking desperate lately
And now, is not the time, to look like that
I don't know if he did it
And I won't ask
There's a lot of good women
With a lot of bad backs
Your man said something heavy
It already looks bad
Careful what you carry on his behalf
And I know he's thinking of you too
Not the type to snitch and run but
But sometimes they say it's the plain truth
99 problems... ugh

Well I don't don't need need need to know
But there's a set of my keys left under your door
And if you need a place to sleep tonight
Well that's what family's for
I don't don't need need need to know
But I'd put on my best fresh little black dress
And go get seen tonight
Work on that alibi of yours

I don't mean to be your mother
Got my own kids to raise
And I don't aim to blow your cover
It's your own hell to pay
But the word on the street is a page out of Blake
Your man made money
But he made mistakes
Now the revelation's coming looks to you for a break
You've always been cunning with those brave escapes but
Take a minute now
Think this through
Give it a second and a bird's eye view
Think of the moments you've got left to loose
Like how much time are you really, down to do?

Well I don't don't need need need to know
But there's a set of my keys left under your door
And if you need a place to sleep tonight
Well that's what family's for
I don't don't need need need to know
But I'd put on my best fresh little black dress
And go get seen tonight
Work on that alibi of yours
Now I've seen the way that you count your blessings
Like hatch marks on the wall
And I've seen you coming out of Sunday confession
With a numbered list and all
Now I don't bow my head for supper
I never do kneel besides my bed
But it looks like your afterlife is covered
I hope on Earth you're careful kid

I don't don't need need need to know
But there's a set of my keys left under my door
And if you need a place to sleep tonight
Well that's what family's for
I don't don't need need need to know
But I'd put on my best fresh little black dress
And go get seen tonight
Work on that alibi of yours
