Green Eyes
Erykah Badu Lyrics


My eyes are green
'Cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do
With your new friend
My eyes are green
'Fause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do
With your new friend

I don't care I swear
I'm too through with you, I am
And you don't mean nothing to me
So go ahead and be
With your friend
My eyes are green
'Cause I eats a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do
With your new friend

I'm insecure
But I can't help it
My mind says "move on"
My heart lags behind
But I don't love you anymore
I'm so insecure
Never knew that love did this
Ooh ooh ooh

I can't remember the last time
I felt this way about somebody
You've done something to my mind
That I can't control
But I don't love you anymore
Yes I do I think
Loving you is wrong
Is it?
Ooh ooh ooh
Ladida dumb de dada
Dumb di de da de da
Dumb de da de dumb de
I'm so confused
You tried to trick me yeah

Ooh oh ooh
Never knew that love could hurt like this
Never thought I would but I got this
Makes me feel so sad and hurt inside
Feel embarrassed so I want to hide
Silly me I thought your love was true
Change my name to silly e badu
Before I heal it's gonna be a while
I know it's gonna be a while chile
Da de da dee dee da
Da dee dee dee dee

I hope it's not too late
Too late too late too late
Feelin' insecure
Love has got me sore
I don't want no more ooh

Yeah it's too late oh ooh
I'm sorry I love you
It hurts me ooh
You told me you loved me too
Ooh then you lost your love
Oh then you lost your love
And then you lost your love, wanted me to go away
But I can't sleep
I can't leave it's too late
I can't leave it's too late
I can't leave it's too late
I can't leave it's too late

Just make love to me
Just one more time
And then you'll see
I can't believe I made a desperate plea
What's with me?
Me me yeah

See I can't leave it's too late
I can't leave it's too late
I can't leave it's too late
Yeah I ain't goin' nowhere no
It's too late too late
Too late too late
Come on babe

Don't you want be strong with me
You told me we had a family
Want to run 'cause I weigh ya down
But times get tough and there you go
Out the door you want to run again
Open my heart will you come back again?
Want to run 'cause you say that you are afraid
You're afraid oh
Never knew what a friendship was
Never knew how to breathe love
You can't be what I need you to
And I don't know why I fuck with you

I know our love will never be the same
But I can't stand these growin' pains

The 1st part of the song gives you turn of the 20th century “Shug Avery” vibes. The 2nd part is mid-20th century vocal jazz. Then, the 3rd part brings it all the way round to modern day neo-soul. It’s both a journey through time as well as an homage to the evolution of black American soul music from the past century, showcasing it’s evolution in lyricism and feeling. What a masterpiece. What an artist.
