Lotta times it seem like you ain't gonna make it
Where you wanna be in life
But yo, yo if ya gotta plan
Believe me you gonna get there
You gonna get everything you ever wanted baby, thas ma word

Trust, ma nigga come home from long bids
They check for me before they see their own kids
I open up accounts for 'em, we bounce tour in
Major cities, arenas, headline with big time singers

Cop Ferrari's with navigational screens
Guide us through your hood and any locality, head back to Queens
Piped out seats, Oakwood MB cord speakers
Bumpin' out old shit

That made me think of Old Easters '86 in a Le Tigre short sleeves
Lees, flip the cuffs up, gettin' fucked up
From Old E, Fresh Fest, niggas got hurt
100 niggas rush the door with Queens Bridge tournament shirts

Back then, nobody wore a vest
Pull out razors, you had to put your hand skills to the test
Get your Pumas took, come home barefoot willin'
Look at the chain I snatched with a medallion worth a thousand

Cops rushed the garden made it home smilin'
Half of the crew probably on the island
Project call play puff ball, the hoop was made out of a hanger
Playin' corners stick the elevator never thought

Project life was promised nothin' but to die trife
For steppin' on the next man's Nike's my motto look for tomorrow
Today is yesterday look at the hood now
I'm mad that it turned out that way

Gats spray these shorties is killers
The older G's taught us well, what's wild now is that they're smaller
And they look at me like I'm on the outside lookin' in
Like 'who's you' when I cruise through
I call Shorty took him in watch your friends, get ends
Be clever, realize that today's the first day that begins forever

Everything will eventually come to an end
So try to savor the moment, 'cuz time flies don't it
The beauty of life, you gotta make it last for the better
'Cuz nothin' lasts forever, you know

Everything will eventually come to an end
So try to savor the moment, 'cuz time flies don't it
The beauty of life, you gotta make it last for the better
'Cuz nothin' lasts forever

Yo, nice cars, livin' like a star club hoppin'
Poppin' bottles at the bar love shoppin'
Gucci iceberg, coppin' two, three nice furs
One for your wife, one for your freak silver spurs

Rolls Royce too good to be true, houses worth 2.2
Pool parties beautiful view
You made it in life, Forbes Magazine style baggy jeans style
Pass the green while hoes wit' meanwhile

Asses, pretty mommies illest bodies pass glasses
Louis Roderra with Peach Schnapps you just relaxin'
Thinkin' damn wish my niggas could afford this
On the sand at your Malibu house holdin' a cordless

Talkin' to lawyers accountants investments
Money doubles, triples protected hard work you manifested
Worries of failure, when you buried will your familia
Keep your name prosperin' to the maximum

You should live, there's only one life that's the physical
Rich or poor in jail why the fuck should you be miserable
Things happen for reasons, the clock keeps tickin'
Love could have your heart beat skippin', thugs turn to religion

The bitch you love could start to hate you
The shit you use to do escape you
Things that make you laugh represent the past
Reminisce the block gamble gees on the floor
Niggas use to be the man, you don't see 'em no more

Your favorite restaurants and favorite stores, they tore 'em down
Turn 'em into shopping malls the hood is like a ghost town
Haunted by souls who thought that time stood still
Just live your life to the fullest, never look back, it's real

Everything must eventually come to an end
So try to savor your moments, 'cuz time flies don't it
The beauty of life, you gotta make it last for the better
'Cuz nothin' lasts forever, ya know

I said everything eventually comes to an end
So try to savor your moments, 'cuz time flies don't it
The beauty of life, you gotta make it last for the better
'Cuz nothin' lasts forever
Ya know, ya know, nothin' lasts forever ya know let it go, let it go
