Ms. Jackson my intentions were good, I wish I could
Become a magician to abracadabra all the sadder
Thoughts of me, thoughts of she, thoughts of he

from Outkast – Ms. Jackson Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

André sincerely regrets all the sadness that his breakup with Erykah caused, and if he had the power to he would pull out his magic wand and make it all go away. (Bitter irony: “abracadabra” is a phrase used frequently by one of Badu’s post-André beau’s, Jay Electronica).

André then goes on to show his true worries:

Thoughts of me — André is thinking back about himself and the mistakes that he’s made which have led up to this moment
Thoughts of she — He is then having thoughts about Erykah and how this breakup will affect her
Thoughts of he — Finally, André is wondering how his son will cope with having parents that are not together
