Song Lyrics


Uh-huh (Y`KNOW?)




Take it for what it`s worth, my birth was a blessing

Sent to live and die, on earth as a lesson

We each have a star, all we have to do is find it

Once you do, everyone who sees it will be blinded (WHAT?)

They`ll tell you that you`re bright, and say you have a future

When you turn your back, same cats`ll try to shoot ya

n*ggaz ain`t sh*t, I can live on both sides of the fence

Forget what you do, when you talk, see what you really meant (aight?)

That`s what I thought, them n*ggaz was bluffin (uh)

They talk all day but say, nothin (uh)

It gets so dark (WHAT?) haze so intense

Since this first rain it`s like it`s rained ever since (WHAT?)

Never got paid for a rhyme but I flow (whoo)

Never got a plate on time but I grow (whoo)

Live your life, STAY on the line but I go (UHH)

Went from doin crime to bein kind cause I know

Chorus: DMX (repeat 2X)

I`m gon` live forever, I`m never gon` die

Only thing I fear is that I`m never gon` fly

Carry my weight but I`m never gon` cry

sh*t I tell y`all n*ggaz straight cause I`m never gon` lie


What is about who I am that makes me unforgettable (HMM)

What it is about what I`ve done that makes it so incredible (uhh)

"More money, more problems" -- well the fame was worse (uh-huh)

I reached out for love and what came back was thirst (WHAT?)

Blessed with the curse (uh) n*ggaz don`t hear me

n*ggaz don`t hear me, Y`ALL n*ggaZ, don`t hear me (uh)

What`d I just say? "n*gga g`head" - you see that?

You gots to FEEL ME to catch what I`m sayin, BELIEVE THAT (UHH!)

But leave that, alone (WHAT?)

We gon` make a n*gga wanna be at, your home (WHAT?)

Oh you kinda quiet with the heat at, your dome (UHH!)

If the dog got he`s gonna bring back a bone

cause we got the chrome (C`MON!)

This is what I live for, or die for

I`m the n*gga with the high score, you try for

What you n*ggaz wanna lie for? It changes nothin

I`m true for cats, yet some strangers bluffin



Now if I take what he gave me and I, use it right (uh-huh)

In other words if I listen and, use the light (uh-huh)

Then what I say will remain here, after I`m gone

Still here, on the strength of a song, I live on (HMM)

No second-guessin on what I stood for, I was good for

stoppin n*ggaz from killin each other in the hood war (UHH)

Comin through showin love, throwin up (UHH)

Them cats not throwin love, you know whassup (WHAT?)

Dark Man baby, that`s my name

and I gots to be the realest n*gga (UHH) up in this game

Cause ain`t no shame, they don`t make em like, this no more

Real to the core, big heart but built for war

I stand for what I believe in

Even if what I believe in stops me from breathin

Relatives grievin, but I ain`t went nowhere

Listen to the song (C`MON) I`m right there
