MARIAH CAREY ft.YOUNG JEEZY - Side Effects

[Young Jeezy:]
It's M.C. and Y.J.
Another hit, okay
We lookin' fine, takin' off
Saw us on a runway
On any given Sunday,
Monday, Tuesday
They try to confuse me,
I never let 'em use me

I was a girl, you was a man
I was too young to understand
I was naive, I just believed
Everything that you told me

Said you were strong,
Then I found out that you were weak
Keepin' me there, under your thumb
Cause you were scared that I'd become much

More than you could handle,
Shining like a chandelier
That decorated every room inside
The private hell we built,
And I dealt with it
Like a kid I wished I could fly away

Bridge:
Kept my tears inside cause I knew if I
started I'd keep crying for the rest of my
life with you I finally built up the strength
to walk away don't regret it
but I still live with the side effects

Chorus:
Wakin up scared some nights
still dreaming 'bout them violent times?
Still little protective 'bout the people
that I let inside
Still little defensive
thinkin' folks be tryin' to run my life
Still little depressed
inside I fake a smile and deal with the

Side effects (4x)

Vacant inside no one was there
Couldn't be real, had to keep quiet
Once in awhile, put up a fight
It's just too much, night after night

After awhile I would just lie,
You were dead wrong, said you was right
Did what I could, just to survive
Couldn't believe this was my life,

Flickering like a candle
Do my best to handle
sleeping with the enemy
Whether he was smothering
every last part of me
So I broke away and finally
found the strength to leave

Bridge:
Kept my tears inside cause I knew if I
started I'd keep crying for the rest of my
life with you I finally built up the strength
to walk away don't regret it
but I still live with the side effects

Chorus:
Wakin up scared some nights
still dreaming 'bout them violent times?
Still little protective 'bout the people
that I let inside
Still little defensive
thinkin' folks be tryin' to run my life
Still little depressed
inside I fake a smile and deal with the

Side effects (4x)

[Young Jeezy:]
(hey hey hey hey hey hey)Hey Mafnifico
or should I say Mafnificent?
Ain't nothing worth your happiness
And I ain't caring who you're with
Misery love company so we ain't tryin' to hang with y'all
Hurt you if ya let 'em in
Gotta keep ya sucka smilin'
Keep tryin' to play
I tell him I ain't blowin' tho
Think they want me outta here,
I tell 'em I ain't goin' tho
Side effects be drowsiness,
Loneliness,
How is this?
I think the call it hateration,
What can you prescribe for this?

Forgive but I can't forget,
Every day I deal with this
I live with the side efffects
But I ain't gonna let them get the best of me (2x)

Bridge:
Kept my tears inside cause I knew if I
started I'd keep crying for the rest of my
life with you I finally built up the strength
to walk away don't regret it
but I still live with the side effects

Chorus:
Wakin up scared some nights
still dreaming 'bout them violent times?
Still little protective 'bout the people
that I let inside
Still little defensive
thinkin' folks be tryin' to run my life
Still little depressed
inside I fake a smile and deal with the

Side effects (4x)

Just so you know, the second verse of the song goes, "Said your were strong, protecting me"

Yes! She is right! "Said you were strong protecting me. Then I found out that you were weak...."
