Mary J. Blige – Tough Love Lyrics

Mary J. Blige Tough Love Lyrics (feat. Moneybagg Yo)

I wish I wasn’t so violent
I wish I wasn’t so silent
Maybe I can get something done
Maybe I can make a run from all my pride
And all my ego
(Don’t wanna do this no more, no more, no more)

I need to be more secure (‘Cure)
Had me thinkin’ less when I’m more (More)
Was sleepin’, now I’m waken to the core
Never buying tickets to the shitshow
I need to be more secure (‘Cure)
Not hating on myself no more (More)
I heard all of this before (‘Fore)
Never buying tickets to the shitshow

Tough love is the therapy (Mhm)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (Mmm)
When I see you testin’ me (Testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me (Best in me)
Tough love is the therapy (Mhm)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (No, no)
When I see you testin’ me (Testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me

Cup of Wockesha and designer shopping (What’s that?)
That’s my therapy (Okay)
No matter what, I make sure I’m the one that’s there for me
Slowly turnin’ into that n**** that I was scared to be
Gotta know it’s mutual ‘fore I show you the real me (Facts)
You just sent Mary J, now I’m on a track with Mary J. Blige (Blige)
I’m in New York right now Harlem Shakin’ all my pride (Pride)
Tough love how I’m comin’, I ain’t lettin’ nothin’ slide (Nah)
Already know the ounce, so tryna see if you gon’ lie (Haha)
Stop callin’ me brother, I barely know you
I don’t ask for much, show me the same love I show you (Love)
Clearport, Billboard, nominated for awards
Hard on myself, I had to strive for it

Great things are always born out of the system
As long as God is with me, I know I’m not a victim
Life so good I just wanna keep livin’
Life so sweet I just gotta keep givin’
Great things are always born out of the system
As long as God is with me, I know I’m not a victim
Life so good I just wanna keep livin’
Life so sweet I just gotta keep givin’

I need to be more secure (‘Cure)
Had me thinkin’ less when I’m more (More)
Was sleepin’, now I’m waken to the core
Never buying tickets to the shitshow
I need to be more secure (‘Cure)
Not hating on myself no more (More)
I heard all of this before (‘Fore)
Never buying tickets to the shitshow

Tough love is the therapy (Mhm-hmm)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (Wake up)
When I see you testin’ me (Testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me (Best in me)
Tough love is the therapy (Therapy)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (Oh, no)
When I see you testin’ me (Testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me

I’m not wastin’ my time
‘Cause peace is hard to find
It gets so hard to climb
It’s like I’m goin’ blind
‘Cause life’s the sweetest pain
I’d rather go insane
Than live my life in vain
Live my life in vain

Tough love is the therapy (No)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (You better wake up)
When I see you testin’ me
Then I see the best in me (Oh, yeah)
Tough love is the therapy (Tough love)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (That’s what I need)
When I see you testin’ me (Testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me (Oh)
Tough love is the therapy
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (No, no)
When I see you testin’ me (When I see you testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me
Tough love is the therapy (Mmm)
Wake up, I ain’t scared of me (Wake up)
When I see you testin’ me (Testin’ me)
Then I see the best in me

Oh
Oh
Tough love
It’s what I need, it’s what I need
