Rapsody - In the Town lyrics

[Intro] Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town [Verse 1: Rapsody] Word around town spread, she lying on her d**hbed Used to spend most her days making sure they love fed Corners used to hold her like coasters do Colas And then when his satellite cobra striking and her disses paying good bread She young, 18, never listened to what her mom said Her daddy touch her fatty, now her real daddy insulted Using his child to put some money in they wallet She young, child bearing a child, she feeling nauseous Sick of the world but got a fetus, need to feed it So her need to me and then give it pleasure all for her baby girl She curls her hair with irons, not hot as the heat she lyin with That got her sick and now her insides inside her dying Cars past they flyin, but everything around her slowing all She sees the money that the town give to buy her Soul, at 18 years old Remind me of so many young girls I know in the town [Hook: Rapsody] In the town Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town In the town Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town Downtown, in the town [Verse 2: Rapsody] The nights move fast when the lights turn off slow She all done shopping, got some brand new platforms She could walk the town flagging down new Acuras or Shiny Accords with two pastors in back of 'em Don't make her feel God, can't forgive her for all of those Said she stack her paper and won't change forever ho And she ain't even showing so she going for all the dough Cause the stress piling up and what she need is some help to cope Exchange with drug dealers, some blow for blow hilla Tryna take her mind off the k**er like pillars dope Her mind stay on it, wishing God would just make it snow And take her off the streets, if only just for Monday though The town hard and she scarred and she just wanna let go On her dying bed, she take her last breath on an overdose Only hours after pushing out a young baby though She named her a miracle and prayed for her baby's soul [Hook] [Verse 3] And now she older, 16 on the corner Raised by her mom and daddy, smoking marijuana Her real mom and daddy though, she never got to know 'em Never knew a different life because no one was there to show her Take her by the shoulders, tell her she was beautiful Without a shame you never paid that at her age won't use you all She never finished school and never got to go to prom And spent most her weekends working, putting needles in her arm All the older women say she look just like her mom And how she used to read the scripture from the Bible, Mark and John But now she's all alone in the town by herself Like her mom tending to they needs, living for the wealth Worried 'bout her health and the life that's inside her Reading scriptures from the Bible now and this is the cycle of the town [Hook]
