Being So Not for You
P.M. Dawn Lyrics


Why can't I keep you from the cold
Seem to know the difference faces
No matter what road you travel on
You go through the darkest places

I can't tell the angels it'll be good
For you
But wanting to say blesses be the
Darkness
For bringing the life through

But I'd be lying to myself

I had no right bringing you here
Knowing what I know, feeling the way
I feel
I had no right being so uncontent,
Being so confused,
Being so not for you

You're in love with all that you don't know
It animates your expectations
But what's the easiest way to hurt a man
Give him all he's ever wanted

Trying to tell the angels I don't
Know what to do
While convincing myself to believe
All the sadness have purpose to
Makes me hate this

I had no right bringing you here
Knowing what I know, feeling the
Way I feel
I had no right being so uncontent,
Being so confused,
Being so not for you

And when you asked the angels to
Make you a better you
Dream all you want
Cause all the light you occupy
They will try and take it all from
You

I had no right bringing you here
Knowing what I know, feeling the
Way I feel
I had no right being so uncontent,
Being so confused,
Being so not for you

This song is one of the great hidden gems in music

Antionette Williams

P.M. Dawn was a beautiful group. They song about life. So sad Be Prince is gone. They never got the recognition that they deserved blessed their hearts. so underrated.

Pamela Washington

I believe if they would have been more populahey would have been like singers today.luminati is control in g music now.theur sound was pure and to the heart.i miss their music but today they would have to do some things to get recognition

Leah Feliz Worrell

I didn't know he wrote it about his child... that's crazy cuz since the first time I heard this song it made me think of my oldest daughter. her life has never been easy for her. she has always had many many serious medical issues and is severely non communicative autistic. and we recently were told she's also type 1 diabetic and now has to have insulin 4 times a day. my poor baby has always struggled and I always feel like I fail her as a mom. so when I heard this song for the first time I just cried and cried it hits so close to home. my daughter just turned 11 I heard it when she was still just a baby. not once have I regretted having her by any means.. I just hate seeing her suffer and struggle between her feet being deformed when she was born and her not breathing then having pneumonia for practically the first year of her life due to aspiration then finding out she had severe reflux and it kept going in her lungs, then she started throwing up bright red blood like torrents and torrents like 8 times out of nowhere, then the surgery on her stomach to try and fix her reflux, then the surgery coming undone, then the feeding tube and all the complications from it, then her having it removed and having to learn how to eat all over again, then being told she is severely autistic, then the seizure that was so bad she quit breathing and had to be put on life support and she had a hard time coming off it, then the Dr's did a mri and found brain damage, then the diabetes... I just wish she could catch just one break and just feel ok. she so beautiful and smart and has never ever hurt anyone in any way or even been even the slightest bit mean or rude to anyone... it just seems so unfair.

Sarason Salas

Ahh man I just shed a tear reading your daughter and family struggles, one the days things will be better, indeed there should be light and sunshine at the end of all this darkness and suffering....i think the entire album was dedicated to Christian the son...was it not called "Dearest Christian I'm so very sorry for bringing you here" 💔😥

Jen X

Leah Worrell I am so sorry your daughter has to go through what she is going through. And you're right. Life just doesn't seem fair. It seems like people who are bad, who do bad things, they live a life of sin, they are the ones who seem to prosper. Good things happen to bad people, and vice versa. My mom always told me that the people here on Earth that are living in sin, who do bad things, they are getting their rewards here on earth. Earthly rewards. They are getting them now on earth, but once they pass, their earthly blessings won't be going with them. And the good people who live good, Christian lives, they will be getting their rewards in Heaven. I know that is supposed to comfort you and make you feel better, but it would be nice to have some earthly rewards here while I am alive! Lol! But, I digress. Yes, this song was to his son. I didn't know that until a few years ago. I can totally understand where he is coming from. I look at my two children and I think, "Why did I bring two human beings into this messed up and cruel world? Why would I bring children into this world of hate, cruelty and just downright terribleness?!? I hate to think what this world is going to be like after I am gone. I hate to think of what my kids are going to face. It is scary. I can only do my best to prepare them for what lies ahead, and then hope they take what I have taught them, and put it to good use!

These guys got to be the deepest duo Ive ever heard in my life-their songs get right down deep in my soul-INCREDIBLE STUFF!!!!

pedro vargas

one of the great underrated songs of all and I totally agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chas Giknis

Thank you for posting!!! For the longest time, I looked for "I had no right"-never realizing that 'Being So Not For You" was the real title. I think it's so cool that this band who is known for their sampling can come up with such a great song-with no samples. I don't understand why the kids these days cant appreciate this kind of music. I've been a DJ for 25 years and with all the crap that has come out, I just cant understand why this didn't chart higher. I'm getting this album!!!

hotcoko6

It's been years since I heard this song but wow... this song feels a bit timeless. I slept on PM Dawn for real... and I LOVE the similar melody to lady in red... dope!
