"Whole Damn Year" as written by and Mary J. Blige....
Tryna find a way to explain this
Why you can't touch me tonight?
I can feel you're getting impatient
But I really can't let you inside
Bad, how deep the pain is
Or you just couldn't believe
And yes I'm good on the surface
But I'm a mess, I'm a mess underneath
See winter took most of my heart
And Spring punched right in the stomach
Summer came looking for blood
And by autumn, I was left with nothing

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been about five years
Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon' take long long year
Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been about five years

Not tryna do this on purpose
Boy I really wish I could
Don't act like you never heard this
I know you haven't misunderstood
Where the others just wouldn't respect me
Don't tell me you use well
I thought we were heading for Heaven
But you're about to take me back to Hell

See winter took most of my heart
And Spring punched right in the stomach
Summer came looking for blood
And by autumn, I was left with nothing

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been about five years
Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon' take long long year
Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been about five years

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been about five years
Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon' take long long year
Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been about five years

Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
It's been about five years
