Roses by Nas

[Refrain: Nikki Flores]

Just like a rose

Everybody knows that you are so beautiful

But I feel a thorn on my hide

I should've known

We can't repair what we broke

But I held you close too close

I should've left your roses at the door

They're sharper than before

And I don't want them no more


[Verse 1]

I have no time to give you guidance

Barely have any fuck time either

Hefner minded like I think you're fine but

I seen the finest women that ever came out a beaver

Mind reader can tell she vegan or not when I meet her

Or if she insecure most are

If she's mixed a possible psycho alert goes off

Not a judge cause a judge dont wear no draws yet he allows

Everything to go to your spouse when you end your vows

My tax bracket not enough blacks have it

Who should I date --

Project chick or Cuban actress?

A White chick they might flip talking that Blackness

Should only attract Black shit I'm an ass magnet

If you mad at that

You'll be mad forever

Never played you

I prayed we would stay together

Wished it'd last forever know what I mean

Heard you tear a rose from the roots the rose screams

[Verse 2]

Them Xanax can't manage your maniac manic depressive expressions

They some silent killers that stress shit

That put ulcers in a lot of niggas

I'm blowing medical it helps chill a violent temper

I done went to hell and back

You always think you right

You know when you wrong and still you want to fight

When people like my song

You want to kill em right

You resent me every time I make a million right

You want to experience life when you calling all the shots

Ordering bottles for all your girls up in the spot

Have your own cash own your own Benz

Your own house everything me I understand

Thought you would bask in the glory as Queen Bee

Put you on to Martin Scorsese Mean Streets

The first movie he made thought that was fly

I thought you was flyer you a fucking liar
