A Million Lives

Original and similar lyrics
[Verse 1:] The other day I got an email, I almost didn't read it But something caught my eye right before I could delete it It was bold and underlined, "Please Read" was the title Followed by "Jake you are my idol" It said and I quote, my name is Nikki and I used to be dancer Til the day the doctor diagnosed me with cancer So I said goodbye to all the hair on head And said hello to my hospital bed Yeah see I was just a normal girl, it happened so fast There were so many days that I thought would be my last However the fight was tough, and the battle was long But I felt strong when I listened to your songs You were, always there for me, you helped my heart beat You were my only friend, kept you on repeat I thank God for you every single night Cause believe or not, you saved my life [Hook:] I've met a million people, been a million places Shook a million hands, seen a million faces I've had a million lows, and a million more highs No I havent made a million, but I've touched a million lives I've met a million people, been a million places Shook a million hands, seen a million faces I've had a million lows, and a million more highs No I havent made a million, but I, but I [Verse 2:] Yeah the mailman knocked said it was for me Handed me a box, sent from tennessee Written on the top "for jakes eyes only" Inside was a journal and letter that he wrote me It said my name is dillon I'm in 7th grade I'm ridiculed and picked on almost everyday Yeah they push me in the halls in between my classes Yesterday they took my books then broke my glasses I got no one to talk to, it's like I don't exsist Sometimes I wonder if I was gone, would I be missed? But lemme tell the real reason for this letter You've helped me through it all, you've help me feel better You're words gimme confidence, your messages inspire me You help me find my inner strength deep inside me Through all the bad times, you helped me find the light Believe or not, you saved my life [Hook] [Verse 3:] I was sittin at my table at dinner the other night When I noticed a little girl sittin to my right She was lookin at me like she knew me, I guess she did Cause then she walked right up to, and then she said My name is sami and I swear that I'm your biggest fan I think she even had my name written on her hand She said me my brother used to listen to you every day Until last year, when he passed away I'll never forget seein my parents cry When they got a call sayin that your son had died Man I wish that he was here now, you were his favorite He had your mixtape and never stopped playin it Your music gives me a feelin that I just can't desrcribe It's like I got my brother back, and hes still alive I pray for both of you, every single night Cause believe or not, you saved my life [Hook] Now lemme turn the table, and talk to you I had a dream but your the reason that it's comin true Yeah I've had some dark days, when the sun don't shine But you always reminded me that I would be fine Cause when no else cared, you believed in my vision And now I got an army comin with me on my mission I thank God for all you, every single night Cause believe or not, you saved my life

A Song For Assata

COMMON "Like Water For Chocolate"
(Common) In the Spirit of God. In the Spirit of the Ancestors. In the Spirit of the Black Panthers. In the Spirit of Assata Shakur. We make this movement towards freedom for all those who have been oppressed, and all those in the struggle. Yeah. yo, check it- There were lights and sirens, gunshots firin Cover your eyes as I describe a scene so violent Seemed like a bad dream, she laid in a blood puddle Blood bubbled in her chest, cold air brushed against open flesh No room to rest, pain consumed each breath Shot twice wit her hands up Police questioned but shot before she answered One Panther lost his life, the other ran for his Scandalous the police were as they kicked and beat her Comprehension she was beyond, tryna hold on to life. She thought she'd live with no arm that's what it felt like, got to the hospital, eyes held tight They moved her room to room-she could tell by the light Handcuffed tight to the bed, through her skin it bit Put guns to her head, every word she got hit Who shot the trooper they asked her Put mace in her eyes, threatened to blast her Her mind raced till things got still Opened her eyes, realized she's next to her best friend who got killed She got chills, they told her: that's where she would be next Hurt mixed wit anger-survival was a reflex They lied and denied visits from her lawyer But she was buildin as they tried to destroy her If it wasn't for this german nurse they woulda served her worse I read this sister's story, knew that it deserved a verse I wonder what would happen if that woulda been me All this shit so we could be free, so dig it, y'all. (Cee-lo vocals) I'm thinkin' of Assata, yes. Listen to my Love, Assata, yes. Your Power and Pride is beautiful. May God bless your Soul. (Common) It seemed like the middle of the night when the law awakened her Walkie-talkies cracklin, I see 'em when they takin her Though she kinda knew, What made the ride peaceful was the trees and the sky was blue Arrived to Middlesex Prison about six inna morning Uneasy as they pushed her to the second floor in a cell, one cot, no window, facing hell. Put in the basement of a prison wit all males And the smell of misery, seatless toilets and centipedes She'd exercise, (paint,) and begin to read Two years inna hole. Her soul grew weak Away from people so long she forgot how to speak She discovered frredom is a unspoken sound And a wall is a wall and can be broken down Found peace in the Panthers she went on trial with One of the brothers she had a child with The foulness they would feed her, hopin she's lose her seed Held tight, knowing the fight would live through this seed In need of a doctor, from her stomach she's bleed Out of this situation a girl was conceived Separated from her, left to mother the Revolution And lactated to attack hate Cause federal and state was built for a Black fate Her emptiness was filled with beatings and court dates They fabricated cases, hoping one would stick And said she robbed places that didn't exist In the midst of threats on her life and being caged with Aryan whites Through dark halls of hate she carried the light I wonder what would happen if that woulda been me All of this shit so we could be free. Yeah, I often wonder what would happen if that woulda been me All of this shit so we could be free, so dig it, people- (Cee-Lo) I'm thinkin' of Assata, yeah. Listen to my Love, Assata, yeah. Your Power and Pride, so Beautiful... May God bless your Soul. Oooh. (Common) Yo From North Carolina her grandmother would bring news that she had had a dream Her dreams always meant what they needed them to mean What made them real was the action in between She dreamt that Assata was free in they old house in Queens The fact that they always came true was the thing Assata had been convicted of a murder she couldna done Medical evidence shown she couldna shot the gun It's time for her to see the sun from the other side Time for her daughter to be by her mother's side Time for this Beautiful Woman to become soft again Time for her to breathe, and not be told how or when She untangled the chains and escaped the pain How she broke out of prison I could never explain And even to this day they try to get to her but she's free with political asylum in Cuba. (Cee-Lo vocals) I'm thinkin' of Assata, yeah. Listen to my Love, Assata, yeah. We're molded from the same mud, Assata. We share the same Blood, Assata, yeah. Your Power and Pride, so Beautiful... May God bless your Soul. Your Power and Pride, so Beautiful... May God bless your Soul. Oooh. (Assata) Freedom! You askin me about freedom. Askin me about freedom I'll be honest with you. I know a whole more about what freedom isn't than about what it is, cause I've never been free. I can only share my vision with you of the future, about what freedom is. Uhh, the way I see it, freedom is-- is the right to grow, is the right to blossom. Freedom is -is the right to be yourself, to be who you are, to be who you wanna be, to do what you wanna do.
