hold up, stop now, let me get a look you
damn girl i aint see u since prom
come to think bout it cant belive it been that long
girl i heard your man locked down now
how long he gone? oh, that long
how the hell he get time like that
3 strikes for possesion ahh he aint coming back
he left you with two kids and bills all around
plus you found out he had another chick across town
its always the darkest right before the sun rise
and you gotta stay strong for the kids in there eyes'n
and please dont despise and go against all brothers
and have a hatred in heart and take it out on another
i hate to sound 2pac-ish lil mama but keep your head up
but your gonna make it i promise you keep your head up
and that, that dont kill you only makes you stronger
and the will to succeed only feed the hunger
for real, for real, for real,(ha-haha-ha-ha)
hey ooh
n dey say ooh oooh ooh
n dey say ooh oooh ooh
i was at the gas station when a man walked passed
with a sign will work for food, clothes or cash
and he asked if he could pump my gas so i let him
clean the windsheild and throw out the trash so i let him
hey, i even asked the brother his name
where he was from, got kids man and whats they ages
he kinda stared for a second he kinda looked suprised
that anyone would even take an intrest in his life
he said young brother there the only words
i've heard in the last year
was a no and get the fuck away from hurr
how could something so simple as general conversation
mean much more than general conversation
hey you could tell life had beaten him down
like he was in the title fight
and this might be his last round
sometimes the easiest things we take for granted
until there gone we realized we even had it
for real, for real, for real(ha-haha-ha-ha)
hey ooh
n dey say ooh oooh ooh
n dey say ooh oooh ooh
i used to think that life had a plan for me
until i realized life had to be planned by me
see thats the key i only deal wit what i can see
cuz over history, mystery brought us nothin but misery
theres more people that done died in the name of the lord
then in any natural disaster, disease or gang wars
before guns there was swords and they was killing each other
aint much changed to this day we still killing each other
killing our brothers while another mother cries for help
man we need to help a brother find himself
feed 'em life 1, 2, 3
hey theres something every brother should see
and thats for real,
and thats for real,
and thats for real
hey ooh ooh ohh
n dey say ooh ooh ohh
hey ooh ooh ohh
n dey say ooh ooh ohh
