4:44 Lyrics By Jay Z

    hannah williams
    do i find it so hard
    when i know in my heart
    i’m letting you down every day
    letting you down every day
    why do i keep on running away

    look i apologize often womanize
    took for my child to be born see through a woman’s eyes
    took for these natural twins to believe in miracles
    took me too long for this song i don’t deserve you
    i harassed you out in paris
    please come back to rome you make it home
    we talked for hours when you were on tour
    please pick up the phone pick up the phone
    i said don’t embarrass me instead of be mine
    that was my proposal for us to go steady
    that was your st birthday
    you matured faster than me i wasn’t ready
    so i apologize
    i seen the innocence leave your eyes
    i still mourn its death and
    i apologize for all the stillborns
    ’cause i wasn’t present your body wouldn’t accept it
    i apologize to all the women whom i toyed with your emotions
    ’cause i was emotionless
    and i apologize ’cause at your best you are love
    and because i fall short of what i say i’m all about
    your eyes leave with the soul that your body once housed
    and you stare blankly into space
    thinkin’ of all the time you wasted it on all this basic shit
    so i apologize

    kim burrell
    i’m never gonna treat you
    i’m never gonna treat you like i should

    i apologize
    our love was one for the ages and i contained us
    and all this ratchet shit and we more expansive
    not meant to cry and die alone in these mansions
    or sleep with our back turned
    we supposed to vacay ’til our backs burn
    we’re supposed to laugh ’til our heart stops
    and then meet in a space where the dark stop
    and let love light the way
    like the men before me i cut off my nose to spite my face
    i never wanted another woman to know
    something about me that you didn’t know
    i promised i cried i couldn’t hold
    i suck at love i think i need a doover
    i will be emotionally available if i invited you over
    i stew over what if
    you over my shit

    kim burrell
    i’m never gonna treat you
    i’m never gonna treat you like i should

    and if my children knew
    i don’t even know what i would do
    if they ain’t look at me the same
    i would prob’ly die with all the shame
    you did what with who
    what good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate
    you risked that for blue
    if i wasn’t a superhero in your face
    my heart breaks for the day i have to explain my mistakes
    and the mask goes away
    and santa claus is fake
    and you go online and see
    for blue’s tooth the tooth fairy didn’t pay

    hannah williams
    i’m never gonna treat you like i should
