Lewis, Glenn - It's Not Fair Lyrics

Can't believe that the heart of my world
Got me on my knees
Prayin' my eyes are lyin' to me
I built a whole new life around you

In an instant we were through
As our future disappears
Fallin' like tears
Are the dreams of a love we thought we shared

It's not fair, I was true to you
I finally settle down
Then you don't turn around
And betray the trust I had in you

It's not fair, after all I treated you
Respectable, with care
Said that you'd be there
Now, who am I to turn to

And I trusted you
And this is what I get in return
You was like a brother to me
But now I is see you was just waitin' your turn

When I was out at work, y'all was doin' dirt
Stealin' my heart away
Shared everything with you, all I was goin' through
Now dark skies and tearful eyes are here to stay

It's not fair, I was true to you
I finally settle down
You don't turn around
And betray the trust I had in you

It's not fair, after all I treated you
Respectable, with care
Said that you'd be there
Now, who am I to turn to

It's not fair, after all I sacrificed
For my seed said, you'd give life
With everything I am
Wanted for you to be happy

And now slowly the life of love
You breathed into my heart
Is slipping away, dying today
If only

Never thought I'd live to see
Disrespected me
How could it be
Let away so easily, yeah

I was true to you
I finally settle down
You don't turn around
And betray the trust I had in you

It's not fair, after all I treated you
Respectable, with care
Said that you'd be there
Now, who am I to turn to

It's not fair, I was true to you
It's not fair, after all I treated you
Respectable, with care
Said that you'd be there
Now, who am I to turn to

It's not fair, it's not fair

  20. willywill74

    Every track of the 1st album no skips needed.

  21. Shlomo Shekelstein

    I got goosebumps listening to this real black music!!! What the Fvck happened to this world? This was real talent! Real music! Now generation fart-inhaling TikTok and Snapchat forgot what is good. Really Sad!

    That was real music! It is not meant in 2020 to listen to good content. Only satanic and femistic agenda today. No more love.

  44. Tamyra Clements

    I remember back in like 2003 or 2004 seeing him walking downtown in Philly. But l didn't say anything to him out of respect for his private space. I still have his first CD till this day. I can listen straight through. Awesome classic CD. I hope he's somewhere writing music & preparing to come back. His sound is missing. Love Glenn Lewis blessed vocals.

  76. tasan215

    One of the realest songs ever

  77. DhaniSo Lit

    Maybe someone might have commented on this in an earlier post, but what makes this a doper song then it already is is the fact that Marsha Ambrosia from Floetry wrote this. If you listen to the riffs, her print is all over it. Damn...picture them collaborating on this the studio. Glenn singing and Marsha giving direction...gives me chills.

  78. Samieleivine Amen-Ordia

    Amazing! Donnie and Stevie influences! Amazing Glen!

  79. M-Squared

    One of the greatest bridges of all time.

  80. James Meredith III

    I remember the first time I heard Glenn Lewis. And his first HIT song "DON'T YOU FORGET IT". I thought it was Stevie Wonder. When I heard "DON'T YOU FORGET IT" I called 96.3 WHURfm HOWARD University radio station and asked the DJ was that Stevie Wonder "NEW" cb.

  81. Reynaldo Flanders

    Praying my eyes are lying to me

  82. Gregory Smith

    How she get caught cheating and get mad at him....and he end up apologizing

    That last verse, the lyrics, the composition and everything had my 13 year old soul replaying it over & over. That song was so amazing.

  84. payne 132

    this man sung out his soul.

  85. leviathanmg

    "...you said that you'd be there, now who am I to turn to?" That's the part that always touches me the deepest.
