Dear Lord, I know You don't condone
The things I be doin' out here in these streets
And I hope that, I pray that You can overlook
The wrong that I had done in my life

I don't know no other way to survive out here
I got a whole bunch of people dependin' on me
Just walk with me, walk with me

Busslin' and gamblin', hit licks scramblin'
Bricks, I'm out here handlin', I'm pimpin' and I'm payin' the rent
Didn't choose this dirty game, this dirty game, it chose me
Every city love cocaine, they'll get it from him
If they don't get it from me

So I get cross-country with that thang
Makin' that crisp, lettin 'em hang
Bangin' that 'Pac, if I die tonight, least mama know I didn't die in vain
'Cause I put up sum from every sale so all my children can live well
Might go to heaven, might go to hell
But just put me in woodgrain lane Deville

I wonder sometime how life would be if it was no such thing as D
But then I put that sweet down 'cause that bullshit don't apply to me
'Cause out here on the real streets a dreamer always stay sleep
'Cause out here the strong survive
And now they didn't die from thankin' weak

Gotta play for keeps, gotta play it hard, still tryna get right with God
Still read my Bible lone 'cause Reverend do wrong, still livin' fraud
Tonight if I get down on my knees
And ask the Lord to forgive me, please
You thank He gon' hear me?
'Cause tomorrow I'm still gon' be slangin' kis

Lord, I'm just a G
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?
I just can't give it up

I'm riskin' all out in the streets
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?

See, I was born in the ghetto, manye, I was raised in the hood
And unless you lived it yourself, it just can't be understood
People think hustlin' is cool or hustlin' is live
They don't understand hustlers only hustlin' to survive

They wished they lived in the 'burbs, wished they didn't have to hang
Out on corners in low-income house in projects and slang
They wish their daddy was home, mama wasn't on drugs
And they didn't have to grow up to be dealers and thugs

Po' children got aspirations and dreams just like the wealthy
But it's hard when that environment you live in ain't healthy
You ain't givin' no hope, nobody showin' you pride
And you live with all this anger and frustration inside

Dog, don't let nobody tell you what you can or you can't do
Just 'cause they funky ass couldn't do it, they ain't you
You can be who you wanna be, live life how you feel
Just put your faith in the Lord, now that's keepin' it trill fo' real

Lord, I'm just a G
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?
I just can't give it up

I'm riskin' all out in the streets
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?

I wonder if it's a heaven up there for real G's
For all the niggaz in the game that's been slangin' cheese
For all them boys on them swangers and their fifth wheel
I'm out here riskin' my life, niggaz shife but I stay trill

I pray so much, I wonder if the Lord love me
I think He do but I'm so caught up in my thug deep
The feds bug me, followin' me around for three
Niggaz couldn't catch me so they hit me with conspiracy

You know that that's the other level of the game
Ain't got shit on me but some niggaz said my name
So here they come, they thang tight
They playin' shife, no Bun ,givin' me life

I ain't goin' back, I'm a make 'em kill me
I'ma bust back, fuck the pen, you feel me?
Wish I can hug my momma and kiss my baby girl
I know it's a better place than livin' in this dirty world

Lord, I'm just a G
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?
I just can't give it up

I'm riskin' all out in the streets
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?

Some people win and some people lose
Some always cryin' the blues, yeah
Some people win, some people lose
Some always bein' misused

Lord, I'm just a G
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?
Just can't give it up

I'm riskin' all out in the streets
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?

'Cause I need You, Lord, right now
I need You, right now
Need Ya, I need Ya, I need Ya
I need Ya 'cause I'm goin' and livin' too fast, yeah

Lord, I'm just a G
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?
I just can't give it up

I'm riskin' all out in the streets
Out here livin' fast
How long can it last?

Out here livin' too fast, how long can it last?
I can't get up, Lord, can You help me?
Lord, can You help me? Can You help me?
Can You help me, right now, yeah
