Blige, Mary J - Doubt Lyrics

You said I'd never be a leader
You said I'd never wear a crown
If I wanted to be someone
I should learn to settle down

(You should know better)
I tell myself
(You'll never go further)
I warn myself
(You'll never be better)
Don't know me that well

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I'd do it all again
'Cause I made it to the top
But I can't keep doubting myself anymore

I can't keep doubting myself

Now you're looking at a leader
Now you're staring at a queen
You said I'll never be someone
But now I'm pulling all the strings

(You should know better)
Won't let me back down
(You'll never go further)
Can't turn me around
(You'll never be better)
So no-one's stopping me now

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I'd do it all again
'Cause I made it to the top
I can't keep doubting myself anymore

I can't keep doubting myself

You think you know
But you don't know the half
You think you beat me down
But I'll have the last laugh
I'll keep getting up
'Cause that's what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna be the best me
Sorry if it kills you

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I'd do it all again
'Cause I made it to the top
But I can't keep doubting myself anymore
No! No!
I can't keep doubting myself anymore

    The new world still has sacred a queen and when a king awakes to role.... That's multiple milleniums away so just keep holding on to hope for present and future.. 2020 is now and let it be; as the Queen lives on... That's part of my thoughts since I was a little girl.

  91. Robin Butler

  92. shirley mckinney

    It was a mistake to bring those singers together. Mary has been going through some stuff, so she might have welcomed a chance to do something different. I think, perhaps she wanted to bring more diversity to her audience! But singing with Taylor Swift was a very bad idea! Too mixed matched in vocal equality! The tried to make an effort to bridge a gap! But it failed! Neither singer's audiences more than likely would never come together. Nothing to do with race. The singers are too different and thier audiences will never cross over! But there are better matches of white and black singers for them both to sing with! But not the two of them, ever again! Bad idea,Taylor! Janelle Monet or Chrisette Michelle might have been better for Taylor to sing with as far as a black singer. And Mary could have chosen a white singer more closer to her kind of music, like Justin Timberlake or Robin Thicke! Just my opinion!

  93. Austine Karibo

    Whoever hid this from me has failed.

    WoW! I love this - feeling emosh


    a pop singer getting onstage with a soul singer, Taylor lots of guts

  95. shirley mckinney

    Taylor writes half way decent songs! But her audience seems to be very young, white and wealth! So she gets a lot perks and support. Even if she is totally studio and record label made and manufactured! Other than that! No voice and no real stage presence! And yet, judging by her audience and concert sales, She is a Star! Highly Over Rated, though!

  96. Jasmine Grey

    Oh WOW!

  97. veronica Lynn

    This is so Beautiful first time I heard this !!!!
