I wasn't ready
I wasn't ready
I wasn't ready
I wasn't ready

When you talked about our future
You would nod your head and smile
But I didn't understand it, I was living in denial
I couldn't see the picture, didn't wanna see it clearer
'Cause I was so young
And now that I can't get ya, wanted to be wit' ya
What have I become?

If this is a game then I've been playing 'cause
I never gave you my all when I had your trust
But I put this on everything that I love
One more chance and we can make up
I wish it could have worked back then
But the truth is I wasn't ready

Mamma told me 'bout excuses
She'd say, "They're no use to say"
What you would have done but didn't
I had to learn the hard way
Now that it's over, I wanted to just hold you
But I know I can't
I'm tryna be a soldier, I wanna do it over
Give me one more chance, I wasn't ready

If this is a game then I've been playing 'cause
I never gave you my all when I had your trust
But I put this on everything that I love
One more chance and we can make up
I wish it could have worked back then
But the truth is I wasn't ready

Can I get a redo, baby?
'Cause you know I need you, baby
And now I'm ready for your love, your love

I just wanna see you, baby
Just wanna smell and breathe you, baby
'Cause I hate what we've become
I wasn't ready for love

I waited, I contemplated and then I did it
It was room for relationship, but pretty had to hit it
We like hand and glove, head to a yankee fitted
Game is obsolete, it's all how you spit it
Better yet listen 'cause karma's a true avenger
Sort of like a Ninja or a king in all his splendor
Remember, love can be as cold as December
Unless it's in its truest form, I could never injure

Your heart, break you or make you see my vision
'Cause I know eventually you'll see my vision
By the way I'm livin' and it's a given
I'm giving you my heart, I'm giving you my soul
I'm giving you my gold

I'm sorry for the dirt that I did
Sneaking broads in and out the crib
The double life that I lived
They say a fool sells dreams
But a man makes dreams come true
Mami, I changed all for the love of you
I wasn't ready back then though

If this is a game then I've been playing 'cause
I never gave you my all when I had your trust
But I put this on everything that I love
One more chance and we can make up
I wish it could have worked back then
But the truth is I wasn't ready

If this is a game then I've been playing 'cause
I never gave you my all when I had your trust
But I put this on everything that I love
One more chance and we can make up
I wish it could have worked back then
But the truth is I wasn't ready

I wasn't ready
Corner Boys
I wasn't ready
I wasn't ready
I wasn't ready
