Various Artists - Dead and Gone lyrics

[Chorus] Oh I've been travelling on this road too long Just tryna find my way back home The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone Oh oh [Verse 1] Ever had one of them days wish would've stayed home Run into a group of s**ers trying to get they hate on You walk by They get wrong You reply then sh** get blown Way outta proportion Way past discussion Just you against them, pick one then rush 'em Figure you'll get jumped, hell that's nothing They don't wanna stop there now they bussing Now you gushing, ambulance rushing You to the hospital with a bad concussion Hit 4 times plus it hit your spine Paralyzed waist down now ya wheel chair bound Nevermind that now you lucky to be alive Just think it all started you fussing with 3 guys Now ya pride in the way, but ya pride is the way You could mess around, get shot, die any day People die everyday all over bull sh** Dope money, dice game, ordinary hood sh** Could this be 'cos of hip hop music? Or did the ones with the good sense not use it? Usually people don't know what to do When their back against the wall so they just start shooting For red or for blue or for blow I guess From Bankhead or from your projects No more stress, now I'm straight Now I get it, now I take Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake That part of me left yesterday The heart of me is strong today No regrets I'm blessed to say The old me dead and gone away [Chorus] [Verse 2] I ain't never been scared, I lived through tragedy Situation could've been dead looking back at it Most of that sh** didn't even have to happen But you don't think about it when you out there trapping In apartments, hanging, smoking, and rapping s**ers start sh**, next thing ya know we capping Get locked up then didn't even get mad Now think about damn what a life I had Most of that sh**, look back, just laugh Some sh** still look back get sad Maybe my homeboy still be around Had I not hit the s**er in the mouth that time I won that fight, I lost that war I can still see my homie walking out that door Who'da thought I'd never see Philant no more? Got enough dead homies I don't want no more Cost a s**er his job cost me more I'd took that a**-whooping now for sure Now I think before I risk my life Take them chances to get my stripe A s**er put his hands on me alright Otherwise stand there talk sh** all night 'Cos I hit you, you sue me I shoot you, get locked up, who me? No more stress, now I'm straight Now I get it, now I take Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake That part of me left yesterday The heart of me is strong today No regrets I'm blessed to say The old me dead and gone away [Chorus] [Bridge] x2 I turn my head to the East I don't see nobody by my side I turn my head to the West Still nobody in sight So I turn my head to the North Swallow that pill that they call pride That old me is dead and gone But that new me will be alright [Chorus] x2
