Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye

Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye

Just passin' through to let you know
That I remember the times we shared
Your mother prayed for us both night and day
I guess this is what she feared

The picture in my room keeps your image sharply in my head
All in my head
I just can't let go of the memories I had
Will this madness ever end?

Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye

Sometimes I wonder if it's better
To be free or be in jail
Incarceration at this time to me
Is better than heaven or hell

I often wonder if you'd still be here
If you had worn your vest, worn your vest
You most likely soon see me we'll all be a memory
If we don't change this mess, change it or we gone y'all

Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye

Hi, passing you through to let you know
Passing you through to let you know
That I, gonna tell everyone I know
Gonna tell everyone I know

How we, used to send them to the floor
Used to send them to the floor
Have we, have we forgot to mourn
Ohh, how long, how long, how long will they mourn
Ohh, how long, how long, how long will they mourn

Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye

Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye

Why did my homie have to die
With the tears in my eyes
I came to say goodbye
Say goodbye
