thank you (remix)
(feat. busta rhymes & french montana)

[busta rhymes]
i love you, you know what they say?
we gotta go through love and h*ll for sh*t to turn up right, you know?
listen.

you’ll be forever in my fortune, know i won’t forget it.
forget your love and how reckless i was, i so regret it.
walking around acting like everything is coprastetic.
just to find i gave a sh*t till it’s so pathetic
should have respected it more when i was supposed to rep it.
my ego got in the way when i wasn’t supposed to let it, i said it,
i know i acted stupid, never admitted guilt, my pride wouldn’t let me do it.
and now our love is killed. i lied untill i let you prove it
and after all we built i slide like i ain’t scared to lose it
i dreamed about your type and prayed for it
yeah, but felt the love you never felt before and got afraid for it
my love was genuine for you i never tried to hurt you
but the type of dude that i was, i knew i ain’t deserve you
i leave a final kiss, don’t forget about me,
i wanna see you happy, you’re better off without me

[estelle]
these tears i cried, sure won’t be the last.
it will not be the last, no.
cause this pain inside, just never seems to p*ss
it never seems to p*ss me by
so i thank you, said i thank you
yes i thank you, for making me a woman

[french montana]
they got us looking like argentina.
thinking by the time, knew i could of made it sweeter.
before the money came, before i went phsyco on ya.
then the money came, then i went tiger on ya.
rose’ bottle, champagne gl*ss sipping,
shorty came to see me homie through the gl*ss visit.
money changing, things changing, my main girl became a stranger, d*mn.
got me feeling like mark when j-lo left.
got me feeling like russel, when kama left.
got me riding in the benz, black, window down.
call j and told him let me put it down.

[estelle]
one thing i learned in life is
we all gotta be ready to sacrifice to survive
i hope she’s happy
you’re the chapter that i’ll be closing
hope you’re happy
cause once my door closes it won’t be open

these tears i cried, sure won’t be the last.
it will not be the last, no.
cause this pain inside, just never seems to p*ss.
it never seems to p*ss me by.
so i thank you, said i thank you
yes i thank you, for making me a woman.

so i thank you, {i do thank you.}
said i thank you, {yes you, and you.}
yes i thank you, {thank you.}
for making me a woman.
