Jhene Aiko – My Mine

Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo (born March 16, 1988), also known simply as Jhené Aiko is an American singer, songwriter and recording artist from Los Angeles, California. Formerly signed to The Ultimate Group and Epic Records, she left both labels in order to continue her education. Aiko began her career being known as “Lil’ Fizz’s cousin”, however she is not actually related to him. It was used as a marketing tool suggested by Sony and Epic to promote her through the R&B group B2K and attract an audience, though Aiko affirms that she and Lil’ Fizz grew up together and were close like family. On December 16, 2011, Aiko signed a recording contract with record producer No I.D.’s record label Artium, distributed through Def Jam Recordings. She has been described as having gentle and pop-tinged vocals. Wikipedia®.

Jhene Aiko – My Mine Lyrics:
Chorus:
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah aye
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time tried to forget you,
Thought I could get you to be mine.
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time I can’t forget to,
Tried to forget you in my mine

Pretend to not have the patience,
Pretending there is enough time for waiting,
Remembering when we kept it a basic,
I wanna go back so that I could taste it
What do I care for?
you were not there anymore
I was not careful,
That is all your fault,
You let me fall

Chorus:
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time tried to forget you,
Thought I could get you to be mine.
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time I can’t forget to,
Tried to forget you in my mine

Buried alive here inside a nightmare,
Living a life where you’re gone,
There is no light here,
It will be light-years until my mind’s clear (you’re gone)
I did it all for love,
I did it all
I’d trade it all for you
I’d trade it all
But what do I care for?
What are you here for?
If you’re not there when I call?

I was not careful,
And that’s all your fault,
You let me fall

Chorus:
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time tried to forget you,
Thought I could get you to be mine.
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time I can’t forget to,
Tried to forget you in my mine

This ain’t how it was supposed to be,
You and me supposed to be,
Remember when it be just me and you in your crib smoking trees
Like you took control of me,
You had a hold on me,
Had me so gone baby,
Yeah, you had me giving me all of me
Now it’s all over, it’s all done
Should have never told ya, you’re the one
I’ll be all right,
I will be just fine
I’ll be OK,
Once you get out my mind

Chorus:
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time tried to forget you,
Thought I could get you to be mine.
Memories sinkin’, deep in, leakin’ in my mine,
All of the time I can’t forget to,
Tried to forget you in my mine
Jhene Aiko My Mine Jhene Aiko   My Mine
