life lyrics – k-ci & jojo

just like a birdie, i just wanna fly free, so high, so high
and own a piece of land
somewhere, somewhere off in the country
oh, oh yeah, listen, yeah

temperature’s like a hundred degrees
like i got chains on me
blackmail and a family of three
been right on my destiny

rake it out fly way
‘cuz it’s too much for the man
shouldn’ta gone down this way
what happened to my master plan

‘cuz i can’t figure out
i coulda been a love child
shouldn’ta gone down this way
tell me, how did i get life?

life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life

oh, somebody done done me wrong
my eyes to the ceiling all night long
time is slippin’ away from me
and it ain’t no tellin’ when i get home
i gotta get home, yeah

just about to see the dollar sign
that’s close to a piece of mind
and everything was about to be fine
so tell me, so how’d i get life?

life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life

everything that i hoped for is gone now
buried in the ground
hopes and dreams and all those things
i’ll never see, said i’ll never see

life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life
life, life, life, life
