Yesterday I picked up the new John Legend album EVOLVER ummm I mean downloaded it off the internet cdq btw. Earlier in the day I hit up the homie reegsta via IM (who makes phone calls anymore) and asked him how he liked the album. His answer, " I couldn't get past the first couple of tracks." I know how that is! You get stuck on one song and keep playing it over and over again because it hits you like BLAMMMM! That song hit home. So instantly once the album was DL'ed I pressed play and scanned it really quick and booya...TRACK #4 instantly hit me. I IMed reegsta with the quickness and said, " its track #4 isn't it?" and it was!! This song though...IT SPEAKS THE TRUTH.. I know everybody has at least lived this song regardless if you are a woman or a man.
This is the first verse from the song:
It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please say
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name and no one’s there
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows
The title of this entry explains it all..."I WISH YOU THE BEST, I GUESS" how many times have you said " I wish you the best" to someone you really felt and really didn't mean it. Shoot I'm gonna be upfront... I said it a few times and I know for sure I didn't mean it. Yeah it may sound funny or messed up but its the truth. Of course I don't wish anything bad but I know for sure I didn't wish them the best because when it comes down to it....YOU FEEL THAT YOU ARE THE BEST.
BTW: GET THIS ALBUM!! or let me know, I can burn it for u.
