Shola Ama — Blood From A Stone lyrics

Why you gotta be so cold
Pleasing you seems impossible
Girl you know you're black to the bone
Loving you is like drawing blood from a stone

So pleasant and heavenly, when you
When you first came to me, and then you,
Started to reveal to me the true colours of your love
But now, now I see instantly, plainly
Like a bitter sweet symphony
You've got a split personality and baby that's fucked up
Cos you don't know what you want, you don't know what you need
You don't know what you want and this ain't how it should be

Why you gotta be so cold
Pleasing you seems impossible
Girl you know you're black to the bone
Loving you is like drawing blood from a stone

From the Andes to Mt. Everest (I swear that)
Honey I will never rest, until I make sense of this crazy
All up in your head
Cos baby I'm a simple woman, gotta make you understand
Make sure that you know exactly whom I am
???????????????????????
Cos you don't know what you want, you don't know what you need
You don't know what you want and this aint how it should be

Why you gotta be so cold
Pleasing you seems impossible
Girl you know you're black to the bone
Loving you is like drawing blood from a stone (x3)

Why you gotta keep on doing it like you do
You know that I lost my mind over you
You better fix it for me and you, yes we do
Yes we do, yes we do, yes we do
I wanna stick around cos you're so damn fine
But I can't take all this shit all the time
You can't lock me like loving you is a crime
I wont stick around while you hurt me baby (repeat)
