Sticky Fingers

Original and similar lyrics
Now I've seen places and faces And things you ain't never thought about thinking If you ain't peek then you must be drinking and smokin' Pretending not to lockin' but you're brokin' Let me get you open now Little Timmy got his diploma and, little Jimmy got life And Tamikra around the corner Just took her first hit off The pipe The other homie shot the other homie And ran away with his money And when the other homies heard about it They thought it was funny but who's the dummy Now you done lost the hustler A down-ass brother got replaced by a buster And though I got love for ya, I know I can't trust you Coz my crew is rollin' home and your crew is rollin' dusta And just because of that you act you don't like the brother No more, uh, I guess that's just the way it goes I ain't tryina preach, I believe I can reach But your mind ain't prepared, I see you when you get there 1-I'll see you when you get there If you ever get there, see you when you get there I'll see you when you get there if you ever get there See you when you get there More temptation and faith I guess we livin' for the day I seen a man get swept off his feet by a bullet and an AK the situation so twisted everybody gettin lifted I'm just tryin to take care of my kids And handle my business coz it way too serious So you gotta pay close attention So you don't get caught sittin' When they come and do all the gettin' Life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big horse Someone's gotta run a little faster Coz we gotta lay the strugle I'd be a fool to surrender When I know I can be a contender And if everybody's a contender then everybody could be A winner, no matter you rag collar deep down we all brothers and regardless of the time somebody else still love us I'm a scuff and strugle y'all breathless and weak I just strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak always keep reaching sure to grab on to something I'll be there when you get there when you wit the sound bumpin' (repeat 1, 1) Verse 3: PS (40 Thevz) You need to loosen up and live a little and if they got kids let them know how you feelin' for your own sake give a little oh, you don't want to hear that you busy tryina stack and keep them from the Jones's is taking advantage of your own the realist homies got you but you known them longest but some ain't missing a good thing until it's gone could have built an empire if not for the jelousy that you righteous we prefare to keep our eyes shut to describe when it's something wrong and we desire so hold your head up high if your poor and righteous until time seems right the problems seem endless put the time to this fairly we gotta put ourselves together and if you feel you're obligated then you need to get back in it coz nothing worse than a quitter you gotta face responsibility one day, my brother so gather up your pity and turn it to ambition and put your vehicle and drive and stop by my side (rpt 1, 1) As we walk down the road of our destiny and the times when there was a the we got one push to give and one life to live stand up for something or lie down in your game listen to the song that we sing it's up to you to make it big I guess I'll see you when you see me (rpt 1, 1...)

Promise Of You

JANET JACKSON "Unbreakable"
Who can tell you The promise of you Will you Live up to The promise of you Gotta stop Say a prayer I’m in shock Can’t believe you just said I’m nothing Who are you Judging me ‘Cause I don’t think like you Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Who can tell you The promise of you The beautiful flower That just hasn’t bloomed You’re judging the surface But what’s growing inside Just might amaze you Bring it on I’m prepared Say I can’t But I don’t even care Doing things You couldn’t dream So just watch While I keep doin’ me Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Say a prayer Don’t recreate me as a clone Won’t accept no as I go Gotta vision all my own I’ll control The promise of you Call me strange I’m unique No disrespect I dance to my own beat ‘Cause I know It’s up to me Yeah to be The promise I vow to keep Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh

This Life

THE AFTERS "Life Is Beautiful"
I come in to tuck her in. I'm so tired from where I've been, Doing all I can to stay awake. As she goes on about her day, I hang on every word she says. She reaches out and puts her hand in mine. For a moment, we are here together. And it hits me that this won't last forever. We can't own it We just get to hold it for a while. This Life. We can't keep it Or save it for another time. This Life. He was always there for me. Now he's fighting just to breathe. I tell him it's ok to let go. As I look into his eyes, I know that this won't be the last time. But for now, we're taking different roads. For a moment, we are here together. And it hits me that this won't last forever. We can't own it We just get to hold it for a while. This Life. We can't keep it Or save it for another time. This Life. [x2] What we give is all we have. How we love is what will last. And this hope we know will carry us through this life. What we give is all we have. How we love is what will last. And this hope we know will carry us through this life. We can't own it We just get to hold it for a while. This Life. We can't keep it Or save it for another time. This Life. We were never meant to stay, So we don't have to be afraid Of what is waiting on the other side. Of this life
