Beyoncé – Hold Up (Video)


I tried to change closed my
mouth more, tried to be soft prettier, less awake
fasted for sixty days wore white, abstained from
mirrors, abstained from sex slowly did not speak another
word, and that time my hair I grew past my ankles, I slept
on a mat on the floor I swallowed a sword, I
levitated, went to the basement confessed my sins and was
baptized in a river got on my knees and said amen
and said I mean I whipped my own back and asked for
dominion at your feet I threw myself into a volcano I
drank the blood and drank the wine I sat alone and bent at the
waist for god I crossed myself in thought I
saw the devil, I grew thicken skin on my feet I bathed in
bleach and plugged my mensies with pages from the holy book
but still inside me coiled deep was the need to know
are you cheating on me cheating, are you cheating on me (Instrumental) Hold up, they don’t love
you like I love you Slow down, they don’t love you
like I love you Back up, they don’t love you like
I love you Step down, they don’t love you like I love
you Can’t you see there’s no other man above you? What a wicked way to treat
the girl that loves you Hold up, they don’t love
you like I love you Oh, down, they don’t love you
like I love you Something don’t feel right Because
it ain’t right Especially comin’ up after midnight I
smell your secret, and I’m not too perfect To ever
feel this worthless How did it come down to this? Going through your call
list I don’t wanna lose my pride, but I’mma fuck me
up a bitch Know that I kept it sexy, and know
I kept it fun There’s something that I’m
missing, maybe my head for one What’s worse,
lookin’ jealous or crazy? Jealous or crazy? Or like being walked all
over lately, walked all over lately I’d rather be
crazy Hold up, they don’t love you like I love you
Slow down, they don’t love you like I love you Back
up, they don’t love you like I love you Step down,
they don’t love you like I love you Can’t you see
there’s no other man above you What a wicked way to treat
the girl that loves you Hold up, they don’t love
you like I love you Slow down they don’t love you
like I love you Let’s imagine for a moment that
you never made a name for yourself Or mastered
wealth, they had you labeled as a king Never
made it out the cage, still out there movin’ in
them streets Never had the baddest woman in the game
up in your sheets Would they be down to ride? No, they used to hide from
you, lie to you But y’all know we were made for each
other So I find you and hold you down Me sing se
Hold up, they don’t love you like I love you Slow
down, they don’t love you like I love you Back up,
they don’t love you like I love you Step down, they
don’t love you like I love you Can’t you see there’s
no other man above you? What a wicked way to treat
the girl that loves you Hold up, they don’t love
you like I love you Slow down they don’t love you
like I love you Oh it is such a shame You let this
good love go to waste I always keep the top tier,
5 star Backseat lovin’ in the car Like make that
wood, like make that wood Holly like a boulevard
What’s worse, lookin’ jealous or crazy? jealous and
crazy? Or like being walked all
over lately, walked all over lately I’d rather be
crazy Hold up, they don’t love you like I love you
Slow down, they don’t love you like I love you Back
up, they don’t love you like I love you Step down,
they don’t love you like I love you Can’t you see
there’s no other man above you What a wicked way to treat
the girl that loves you Hold up, they don’t love
you like I love you Oh, down, they don’t love you
like I love you I hop up out the bed and get my
swag on I look in the mirror, say, “What’s up?” What’s up, what’s up,
what’s up I hop up out the bed and get my swag on I
look in the mirror, say, “What’s up?” What’s up, what’s
up, what’s up
