Ashanti feat. Ja Rule – Helpless Lyrics

(Intro – Ja Rule)
Like the way I came here

(Chorus – Ashanti)
Look into your eyes, and the sky’s the limit I’m
Helpless, baby
Down for the count, and I’m drowning in em

(Verse 1 – Ashanti)
I ain’t ever been the type to try and grab the spotlight
We were at the revel with some rebels on a hot night
Laughing at my sister as she’s dazzling the room
Then you walked in and my heart sang
Tryin’ to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom
Everybody’s dancing and the bass top volume
Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine
Saying to myself, baby
This one’s mine

(Pre Chorus – Ashanti)
Shorti made her way across the room to you
And I got nervous, thinking What’s she gonna do
She grabbed you by the arm, I’m thinking I’m through
Then you look back at me and suddenly I’m

(Repeat Chorus 2X)

(Verse 2 – Ashanti)
One week later, I’m writing a letter nightly
Now my life gets better, every letter that you write me
Laughing at this girl, cuz she wants to form a harem
No, I ain’t sharing

Two weeks later, in the living room stressing
My father’s stone faced while you’re asking for his blessing
I’m dying inside, as you wine and dine
And I’m trying not to cry
Cause there’s nothing that your mind can’t do

(Pre Chorus – Ashanti)
My father makes his way across the room to you
I panic for a second, thinking we’re through
But then he shakes your hand and says be true
And you turn back to me, smiling, and I’m

(Repeat Chorus 2X)

(Break – Ja Rule)
Ashanti, I don’t have a dollar to my name
An acre of land, a troop to command, a dollop of fame
All I have’s my honor, a tolerance for pain
A couple of college credits and my top notch brain
Insane, your family brings out a different side of me
Peggy confides in me, Angelica tried to take a bite of me
No stress, my love for you is never in doubt
We’ll get a little place in Queens and we’ll figure it out
I’ve been living without a family since I was a child
My father died, my mama cried, I grew up buck wild
But I’ll never forget my mother’s face, that was real
And long as I’m alive, Ashanti, swear to God
You’ll never feel so

(Outro – Ashanti & Ja Rule)
Baby I’m
Mm, so into you
So into you
