It's 4 o'clock in the mornin'
And she ain't feelin' right
I'm on a first class trip
Through this place called life

I don't know what to do
'Cause my body's still shakin'
I know it's time to man up
And start my education

I need someone to call on
So I called on my best friend
I said, "Bro, I can't take it"
He said, "Boy, stop trippin'"

So I hung up the phone
Packed my shit and got right
I know what I gotta do now
Be a man and face life

Maybe we could work it out
'Cause you know I can't live without you
And everytime I think about it
I know a nigga can't live without you

Ain't no need to cry about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you
I even wrote a song about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you

At the beginnin' you was gone
I was stayin' with my momma
I stayed gettin' in trouble, man
Straight damn, drama

I started dancin' so I stayed out of trouble
'Cause I stayed in school, sellin' candy so my money doubled
But then you told me man, dancin' was for punks
Then you told me come and stay
And you ain't care what I want

You told me come and dance and rap with my brothers
You taught me how to love
And how to care for my brothers

And then you taught me all yo hustlin' skills
Just in case I get alone I know how to pay bills
You told me I was straight regardless of a deal
And I love you man for that 'cause you always kept it real

Maybe we could work it out
'Cause you know I can't live without you
And everytime I think about it
I know a nigga can't live without you

Ain't no need to cry about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you
I even wrote a song about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you

Now, that I made it, it feel real good
Take you out the hood
Put you on B and the block
In the middle of the woods

And it hard as it seems
You was there for me
One bedroom apartment
On 1604 number efficiency's down in Coverly

And even though I like to cheat
I'm going a love my Georgia peach
And that's a promise I'm gon' keep
To the end, never gone bend

And I can hear you tell yo friends
And I can see you on a bus
Not fussin' with yo brand new Benz
To the world, baby it's yours

I'd give you the world
'Cause you not no ordinary girl
I'm yo son, you my ol' girl
My momma, we shared for 19 years

And from the bottom
Of my foundation
I'm telling you how I feel
And I love ya

Maybe we could work it out
'Cause you know I can't live without you
And everytime I think about it
I know a nigga can't live without you

Ain't no need to cry about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you
I even wrote a song about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you

See, I fell in love with ya
Wanna raise my kids with ya
But you left me all along with tears
Drippin' down the picture

I remember the day like yesterday
May 9th to be exact
I'd do anythin' to get you back
Even though I know you ain't comin' back

I'm serious as a heart attack
Could we get it back the way it was?
'Cause I know you had some outside
Influences that pulled a plug

The reality, Junebug, girl I know
We'll always be together
I got you locked away deep in my heart
Always here forever

Maybe we could work it out
'Cause you know I can't live without you
And everytime I think about it
I know a nigga can't live without you

Ain't no need to cry about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you
I even wrote a song about it
'Cause you know I can't live without you
