Now I know how Adam must have felt when my Eve made me cry
And all I could do was ask myself whyÖ
My eyes burned like flames as I tried to bottle up the pain
Yet it remained inside of my stomach & stung like acid rain
Growing and spreading like a malignant cancer that was too large to contain
Thoughts of her would invade my brain so much that I thought I was insane
Contemplated a hole in my head, but didnít wanna bother with leaving a stain
I considered her a thief because she stole something from me that I needed
Took a piece of my heart like a crook while I begged and pleaded
Look at me a man defeated when I thought I was hip
The party had been over when the record began to skip
Couldnít abandon ship; I had to sink or swim
Since the waters was real deep my chances were slim
Did she value my love or was it just expendable?
Why did she have me around, was it for comfort or was I just dependable?
All women ainít roses; some of them are just weeds
Filled with lies and dirty deeds, bringing good men to their knees
But itís cool I bounced back exactly into my rightful place
Landed on my feet by Godís undying grace
And I donít hold no grudge because we all make mistakes
A brother like myself might bend but never breaks
I bit the forbidden fruit and wasnít happy with the taste
And as far as the snake goes Iím looking to get evenÖ
Thatís why next time Iím bringing a gun with me into the Garden of Eden
