And I still, gotta ask
You could've told me

And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that
And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that

And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that
And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that
(So, so, so)

From the beginnin' it was known
Had a brother here, but now he's gone, real gone
He's not six deep, find him on 6th Street
His mind now mince meat, sleepin' on concrete

Can tell when she went to sleep, she's still weak
About a big bro, overdid it one day
Decide to hit her, no booze, no drugs, no playaz
No thugs, no luv no hugs

When she caught me, found the stash in the coffee?
Call me from the pay phone speakin' real softly
That I've broken the seal of trust
On her way to her momma's house on the bus

It was old for us, "Don't make a fuss" she said
As the tears shed, explained that she felt mislead
She couldn't take the pain if I was jailed or found dead
Or if I'd went onside her head

I tried to convince her, only happens to a few
How could I question, after all she'd been through
She said she felt bad, but there was nothin' I could do
I thought I knew, I thought I knew

And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that
And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that

Yeah, me and my man's go back way before the music
I'd never thought that he would lose it and do that
All year he used to be in my house
But now I can't wait to smack the taste out of his mouth

They say that money is the root of all evil
But not having money is the root of all evil
Chillin', talkin', walkin' with my people
Talkin' the walk about how shit goin' be

We gonna rock under any circumstances
When I'm on the microphone you know we advancin'
With or without you, can't fuck with you
We try to forget you, 'cause we're tryin' to get richer

And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that
And I thought that I knew you
Better than that, better than that
Better than that, better than that
And I thought that I knew you
