What About

Original and similar lyrics
We walked along the beach What a moonlit night He held my hand in his He kissed me He said "I wanna spend my life with you... I want you for my wife" Just then I thought [CHORUS:] What about the times you lied to me What about the times you said no one would want me What about all the shit you've done to me What about that, what about that What about the times you yelled at me What about the times I cried, you wouldn't even hold me What about those things What about that, what about that I took a pause, then a deep sigh He looked right into my eyes as he said "I know I didn't say somethin wrong" I didn't have the courage to say But then I thought [CHORUS] [CHORUS 2] What about the times you hit my face What about the times you kept on when I said "no more please" What about those things What about that, what about that What about the times you shamed me What about the times you said you didn't fuck her She only gave you head What about that, what about that Don't wanna live my life In misery Don't tell me you did it cuz you love me I don't believe I'm sick and tired Your deceptive games Wonder where you have been I can't live life wonderin My heart was poundin But the time had come To stop lettin my whisperin heart control me And tellin my screamin mind what to do I looked him straight in the eyes and then I said [CHORUS + CHORUS 2 (2x)]

Live Or Die

L.G. Wise
Verse 1 Yo I roll with Godbody Prayin fearin nobody My life belong to Him So I don't need a shoty You ain't got no peace at home Ridin, cryin on the phone Puffin lah Ready to die So you huffin on your chrome So if the Ruff wanna ride The Ruff gotta die Just like if Puff wanna walk Then Puff gotta lie People just don't understand I spit it righteously But you get your life right And you might just be Got you candy-coated sweet-long With the feet on Clockin dollars everyday But you know you livin wrong So just livin life in this war like it's a game All alone and never knowin the peropse why they came In the streets they learn to kill In the club they pack steel And It's all for the sake of a game that ain't real So they learn to throw slugs Like they learn to sold drugs A good son corrupted by a cold hearted thug Fast life make no sence when you dead and you gone Right now you got a chance to chose your right from wrong But it kills me to see those thugs that don't care When they die leavin' children behind It ain't fair Some wanna ride Some wanna die But heres your chance to live or Chorus Live or die 'Cuz the way that you live's gonna be the way that you die Look what you wanna do Live or die I know you claim to be real I see the thug in your eye So what you wanna do Live or die 'Cuz the way that you come's gonna be the way that you go Now what you wanna do Live or die All the dough that you make you can't take when you go East Coast Name one get some Yo we got this here Predestened by the Lord You can't stop this here I roll with the real ones 'Bout to drop this here Your visions kinda blury We 'bout to make this clear Lil Wayne I know you hurtin' 'cuz you lost your pops The block was so hot you had to slang that rock Thugs grillin' ya so you sleep with your glock Thuggin' hard up in my life Dogg I had to stop Saw my my man last year He just got locked Escaped from the hood Just like Lot Didn't wanna get shot End up just like Pac Or end up in the flames 'Cuz It's just too hot Yeah, I heard your album And Baby boy it was wac Murder lyrics, deceving spirits sung over the track While you flowin in the studio and sippin' that cogiac What you spittin but not livin I'm tired of this phonie act Sold your soul, had to pay to play tghe game 'Cuz as soon as you make that chedder son, you'll never be the same You forgot from which you came and you suckers are still lame Like Tony Montana and his wac rap game Money exagerates you, the truth will agravate you I spit the type of wisdom you choose or can't relate to Even the dumbest on the streets son, can estimate you Fantisizing in your lyrics seems to motivate you But I don't immitate you and I don't player hate you But I'm prayin' for your souls that hell's fire escape you I know the game ain't the same and the fame is what you claim But I'm tellin' you Playboy you gotta pay to play the game Chorus West Coast

Learning To Live

DREAM THEATER "Images And Words"
-- John Myung There was no time for pain No energy for anger The sightlessness of hatred slips away Walking through winter streets alone He stops and takes a breath With confidence and self control I look at the world and see no understanding I'm waiting to find some sense of strength I'm begging you from the bottom of my heart to show me understanding I need to live life Like some people never will So find me kindness Find me beauty Find me truth When temptation brings me to my knees And I lay here drained of strength Show me kindness Show me beauty Show me truth The ways that your heart sounds makes all the difference It's what decides if you'll endure the pain that we all feel The way that your heart beats makes all the difference In learning to live Here before me is my soul I'm learning to live I won't give up Till I've no more to give Listening to the city Whispering its violence I set out watching from above The 90's bring new questions New solutions to be found I fell in love to be let down Once again we dance in the crowd At times a step away From a common fear that's all spread out It won't listen to what you say Once you're touched and you stand alone To face the bitter fight Once I reached for love And now I reach for life Another chance to lift my life Free the sensation in my heart To ride the wings of dreams into changing horizons It brings inner peace within my mind, As I'm lifted from where I've split my life I hear an innocent voice I hear kindness, beauty and truth The way your heart sounds makes all the difference It's what decides if you'll endure the pain that we all feel The way your heart beats makes all the difference In learning to live Spread before you is your soul So forever hold the dreams within our hearts Through nature's inflexible grace I'm learning to live

I Want To Live

Sometimes I feel like I need to shake myself To wake myself I feel like I'm just sleep walkin through my life Its like I'm swimmin' in the ocean of emotion But still somehow slowly goin' numb inside I dont like who I'm becomin' I know I've got to do somethin' Before my life passes right by I wanna cry like the rain Cry like the rain Shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin' Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin' Fight with the devil and go down swingin' Fly like a bird Roll like a stone Love like I aint afraid to be alone Take everything that this world has to give I wanna live Sometimes I wonder why I work so hard To guard my heart Well I hardly feel anything at all I've spent my whole life building up this ivory tower Now that I'm in it I keep wishin' it would fall So I could feel the ground beneath me Well it takes this air I'm breathin To know that I'm alive I wanna cry like the rain Cry like the rain Shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin' Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin' Fight with the devil and go down swingin' Fly like a bird Roll like a stone Love like I aint afraid to be alone Take everything that this world has to give I wanna live I wanna live Something deep inside keeps saying life is like a vaper Its gone in just a twinklin' of an eye I wanna cry like the rain Cry like the rain Shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin' Sing tothe heavens like a church bell ringin' Fight with the devil and go down swingin' Fly like a bird Roll like a stone Love like I aint afraid to be alone Take everything that this world has to give I wanna take any breath i can get I wanna live Yeah Yeah

Wild Things

ANDY MINEO "Heroes For Sale"
[Hook] I wanna go where the wild things are I'm talking lions, tigers, bears (oh my) Christ died for the terrible heart That's why I wanna be where the wild things are [Verse 1] Welcome to the church in the wild I live with dudes haven't been to church in a while I've chosen this lifestyle, you ever met my friends? Porn stars, dope dealers, they like, "Why you chill with them"? I thought you was a Christian? Yeah I'm on that team But I'm with them cause my life's the only bible that they've ever seen Some wanna be an earshot from the church bell I wanna win souls, make gunshots in the worst hell Telling 'em Christ became a curse for they sin with my words and my works They won't come in? I'm bringing church to them Yeah, that's why I live where I live They say, "You acting cray, that ain't no place to raise your kids" But um, if we ain't living it who else gon' show em What a family supposed to look like instead of them broken homes Gotta be living stones around where they getting stoned Live and know Him, die to make Him known 'til He take us home, let's go [Hook] [Verse 2] If you catch me in a bar where the wild things are With my pastor and an entourage who loves God Please don't think that it's odd, we kick it 'round broken hearts Fishing for men, surrounded by sin but ain't taking part I talk about Jesus, all the Christians love me I walk like Jesus now they wanna judge me, ain't it funny? I'm ducking stones thrown from the Pharisees Gospel of Peace up on my feet like a pair of cleats Walking with the Paraclete, that's Greek for The Spirit They say the wild things'll eat you up Who shall I fear when God is walking with me If I die that's a win, that's the seed of the church plus I get to be with Him And we so undefeated like Hanes made our sneakers I had beef with Jesus and my sin it got deleted So I gotta go and speak it to those who really need it Let the Gospel off the leash, go and be where the beasts at [Hook]
