Mary J. Blige

"Hold On"

[Verse 1: Lil' Kim]
Oh, how it hurts, like childbirth
The wounds heal slow, you just don't know
At times, I don't know what to say
And all I do is pray, day to day
But still, I feel my strength might die
Like right now, I'm tryin' hard not to cry
Even when I close my eyes, I still see it
Damn, I just don't believe it
The bad times I buried, like the cemetery
Unworthy people playin' beneficiaries
A lotta people eatin' off of one man's death
Don't you worry B.I., I'ma ride to my last breath
You killas, caused a lotta devastation
You have no idea what you did to this nation
I f*ckin' hate you, excuse my frustration
But just when I'm about to quit, God tells me to just

[Chorus: Mary J. Blige]
Don't you give up, be strong
Hold on, hold on
Things are gonna get better
Tough times, they last so long
Hold on, hold on
If you believe, they will get better

[Verse 2: Lil' Kim]
Frank White, the man with the money and the fame
Passed away, now b*tches wanna claim his name
I been with my n*gga before he came in the game
No one's, no V's, we used to take the train
Just us and the Mafia goin' out to parties
I guess back then we was real nobodies
But he was my n*gga, and I was his b*tch
I rolled hard with him, how could I forget him
Had beef with yo wife that ain't patched up
But still got love for your kids
Even wrote 'em in my will
And I'ma make sure the fam keep a decent meal
No matter what I got to do, or who I got to kill
sh*t is real, baby, there ain't no appeal
If I'm f*cked up, imagine how Mrs. Wallace feels
Sometimes I sit and think how it would be if we was married
Of if I woulda kept the child that I carried
So to my ladies, don't think I haven't walked in yo shoes
Or thought this was only happenin' to you, righ'
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on this boo
Cuz trust me, I know exactly what you're going through

[Chorus: Mary J. Blige]
Don't you give up, be strong
Hold on, hold on
Things are gonna get better
Tough times, they last so long
Hold on, hold on
If you believe, they will get better
I got your back

[Verse 3: Lil' Kim]
So I guess you know the story of how it all ends
Depressed, stressed, don't know who's my real friends
One thing's for sure, I can count on my mens
D-Roc, Money, L, Lil' Cease, and PD
My whole B.I. family, remind me of you
We miss you so much, I love you so much
Never thought life without you would be so rough
But I know we gon make it
We ain't happy, but we fakin'
And to New York, thanks for the support
And all our real fans, I'm shoutin' out the whole land
This is somethin' young kids just won't understand
How they took away this beautiful man
Who shared so many memories
I could go on and on, but a song can only be so long
It's been hard, but I told God that I put up a fight
So here's a Long Kiss Goodnight, Frank White

[Chorus: Mary J. Blige]
Don't you give up, be strong (be strong)
Hold on, hold on (you gotta hold on, girl)
Things are gonna get better (don't let 'em rule you)
Tough times, they last so long (you better stay sane)
Hold on, hold on
If you believe, they will get better
Don't you give up, be strong (see we need you, always need you Kim)
Hold on, hold on (every day, we miss you, we miss you BIG, oh)
Things are gonna get better
Tough times, they last so long
Hold on, hold on (don't let 'em get you down)
If you believe, they will get better (don't let 'em tell you you won't be around)
Don't you give up, be strong (just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, yeah)
Hold on, hold on
Things are gonna get better (hold on, hold on)
Tough times, they last so long (things will get better, baby, things will get better, Kimmy)
Hold on, hold on (I'm telling you as your friend Mary)
If you believe, they will get better (I love you, I love you, your friend, know that)
Don't you give up, be strong (BIG, he still lives in me)
Hold on, hold on
Things are gonna get better (he still lives in you and only you)
Tough times, they last so long (and everybody that knows him, yeah yeah yeah)
Hold on, hold on
If you believe, they will get better
Don't you give up, be strong (only if you believe, it get better)
Hold on, hold on (only if you believe, it get better, yeah)
Things are gonna get better (oh)
Tough times, they last so long (just ignore the nonsense)
Hold on, hold on ('cause you're on another level)
If you believe, they will get better (don't let 'em, don't let 'em fool ya)
Don't you give up, be strong (I got ya, I got ya, I got ya)
Hold on, hold on (I hold you in my arms like my own baby)
Things are gonna get better
