Time - Mary J. Blige

If I had my way life would be just fine
But the world is too much and it makes me cry
Sometimes I feel like leavin' but I must be wise
Because time is not on our side
Because time is not on our side

The end is comin'
Stop your runnin'
Im tellin' you this is the truth
You can talk about what you read about
Everything is on the news
People nowadays so shady
Now what is wrong with them?
Somethin' cast a spell upon their minds
And they always wanna condemn


While you're judging me
you should look around
And you'll see our people goin' down
Some of them were killed over a dime
Now tell me, do we really have time
To continue with this madness?
'Cause I'm sick and tired of this
Tryin' to cross my world with jealousy
And I'm about to catch a fit


You're decevin'
What's the meanin' of you're retrievin'
The enemy's greievin?
We all are leavin' someday but
We don't know how we all are goin'
Please belive me when I tell you
That time is not really on our side
Repeat along with the following
How can you hurt the children?
They mean so much to us
They'll soon be leaders
And they will lead us to a righteous path
But you must understand
Time is not, time is not on our side
Time is not on our side
