DeJ Loaf - My Life lyrics

[Hook]x2 Yeah yeah, aye Yeah yeah, aye Yeah yeah, aye My Life [Verse] Look I was raised on the north end for a couple years They say my mama lost it, so my grandma took us in It was me my two brothers and my older cousins kids We ain't really had no food so they hit the store and steal Ayo I'm for real, starving if you want [?] And I was always shy, so I ain't never had no friends My brother he was ten, running errands for them ends Like take this here go give it to my mans But, Ayo I don't even know He was doing what he was told and that's how it had to go He was doing what he was told and thats how it had to go When my mama came through, she would come and she would go We would cry our eyes out and get a whipping for it though My grandma sold Y-B, and she did it for the dough And I ain't want to go to bed cause there'd be mice all on my floor Mama bring us clothes and we we're happy little souls Like, this yours, that yours go head and try it on My Grandma always kept a couple hoes I thought they were her friends, turns it out it was some more She had a thing for women, my brother was kinda feminine Ain't trying to sound down, just some sh** I be rememberin' East side Detroit, dirty glove Michigan I'm just telling my story and I hope yall can picture it (why) Aye cause this how I came up, situations made me tough Made me realize what was what What the f** I was a kid, I ain't really know much All I wanted was my mama my daddy and packed lunch But, instead I got whippings and took em like I was tough It wasn't much, I was a solider Knew we'd be with moms again Cause we had to move east when they took Grandma to the pin I was prayin', but I knew we'd see her once again She got a couple years but that was time for us to spend Time with my Mom, time for us to bond Mom, I'm your daughter and I really like to rhyme I want to shine like you, I want to grind like you I want a house with a view, and a nice sized pool What it do, I met my best friend when we moved She was cool, a year younger We went to the same school We played pool, played ball with the boys I was cute, but I hated when they call me tomboy (why) I just it was insecurities Skinny little girl couldn't wait to reach puberty I waited long enough, seventeen I lost my purity Found someone I love, my love he was feelin' me But life goes on, I'm too strong like seriously They k**ed my little cousin, I ain't gon lie it was k**in' me My Grandma died peacefully, and she ain't seemed sick to me Week later they found lil Greg in an alley, He Just graduated man that sh** f**ed up the family Tragedy they run in threes I got a job to get my little brother off them streets Them sh**s weak, I got asthma I can barely breathe I got in college with a 15 on my ACT Trying to tell me I couldn't read, f** outta here (please..please) Look, but in cla** I would fall asleep Writing rhymes through the lectures I got to make it, I'm so desperate (why) I just am, ya know?
