Relationships - Truth Hurts!

The single, "Truth hurts" by Lizza went viral nearly 2 years after being released. The lyrics in this song has a relatable audacity and consciousness regarding womanhood and self-awareness.

In the video Lizzo leaves her groom at the altar after realizing her self worth after dealing with his lies and games, but instead of crying over it she keeps it moving because its not worth her time or energy anymore. "You're 'posed to hold me down, but you're holding me back—and that's the sound of me not calling you back."

The lyrics basically express a good way to deal with a breakup, instead of crying and staying down about it, keep it moving and live your life! "Shampoo Press, get you out of my hair." 


Lizzo - Truth Hurts - Released September 2017

Lyrics

Why're men great 'til they gotta be great?

Woo

I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100% that bitch
Even when I'm crying crazy
Yeah, I got boy problems, that's the human in me
Bling bling, then I solve 'em, that's the goddess in me
You coulda had a bad bitch, non-committal
Help you with your career just a little
You're 'posed to hold me down, but you're holding me back
And that's the sound of me not calling you back

Why're men great 'til they gotta be great?
Don't text me, tell it straight to my face
Best friend sat me down in the salon chair
Shampoo press, get you out of my hair
Fresh photos with the bomb lighting
New man on the Minnesota Vikings
Truth hurts, needed something more exciting
Bom bom bi dom bi dum bum bay

You tried to break my heart?
Oh, that breaks my heart
That you thought you ever had it
No, you ain't from the start
Hey, I'm glad you're back with your bitch
I mean who would wanna hide this?
I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever be your side chick
I put the sing in single
Ain't worried 'bout a ring on my finger
So you can tell your friend, "shoot your shot" when you see 'em
It's OK, he already in my DMs

Why're men great 'til they gotta be great?
Don't text me, tell it straight to my face
Best friend sat me down in the salon chair
Shampoo press, get you out of my hair
Fresh photos with the bomb lighting
New man on the Minnesota Vikings
Truth hurts, needed something more exciting
Bom bom bi bom bi dum bum bay

I'ma hit you back in a minute
I don't play tag, bitch, I been it
We don't fuck with lies, we don't do goodbyes
We just keep it pushing like aye yi yi
I'ma hit you back in a minute
I don't play tag, bitch, I been it
We don't fuck with lies, we don't do goodbyes
We just keep it pushing like aye yi yi

Why're men great 'til they gotta be great?
Don't text me, tell it straight to my face
Best friend sat me down in the salon chair
Shampoo press, get you out of my hair
Fresh photos with the bomb lighting
New man on the Minnesota Vikings
Truth hurts, needed something more exciting
Bom bom bi bom bi dum bum ba

Kelly Clarkson - People Like Us "Hey everybody loses it Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes And hey, yeah I know what you're going through Don't let it get the best of you, you'll make it out alive" "Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever Here's to the damned to the lost and forgotten It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom" "Oh, people like us we've gotta stick together Keep your head up nothing lasts forever Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom"  - Kelly Clarkson

Jucee Froot - Fed Up

HOOK:   Yeah i know your fed up, fed up with the phonies You can never settle, gotta the bread up Momma keep ya head up, living in the ghetto Things is gon get better, just watch it when i tell ya Yeah i know ya fed up, fed up But things is gon get better, i tell ya Baby just keep ya head up, ya head up You are not a failure Things is gon better, things is gon get better Verse 1: Rent due, light bills too Got four kids that's up in one room No new ni**a she ain’t even got room Can't you tell her what is yo use She barely gotta a roof Shit they finna put her out Kids clothes outgrew And they sleeping on the couch Running in and out Now the time running out And she really got doubts She just looking at the clouds Can't feed into negativity But her son is up in captivity She just prays for the simple things Asking why lord you won’t answer me Then he spoke to her in her sleep Say i know what's meant and what's not to be All you go

Goodbye to the old me

NF - Remember This  Song from NF's album Perception  - this album is full of real life CHORUS Yeah, they say when we grow up You'll understand when you're older ...... Guess I'm still a kid, I don't know if If I'll ever let go of this (Yeah) Say goodbye to the old me We ain't friends anymore, you don't know me (Real music) I know I could die any moment If I do just remember this Verse 1  Yeah, handouts create lazy people I'm not impressed with... You want something in life, then why don't you go and get it?  Actions speak louder than words do, it's pretty quiet, isn't it? Look at the world we live in, defined by comment sections (Whoa) Surround yourself with people that challenge how you think... Not people that nod their head and act like they agree Those people will cut you open just to watch you bleed Always be yourself, not the person that you preten.d to be, no! These people gon' tell you that you won&#
