live this way lyrics – 2 mello

[chorus]
i got friends need picking up
clothes need st-tching up
beats need kicking up
neighbors spitting wicked stuff
tummy needs filling up
my insurance really sucks
and i don’t want to live this way
i got dreams i wanna live
some money i wanna give
some rules i gotta respect
some wins i gotta collect
some alb-ms i wanna tease
victories i wanna seize
that i don’t want to give away

[verse 1]
in my room alone, waiting for jazz samples to buffer on my pentium 4, i had so much to discover
and so much freedom to pursue it so fully and honestly
i’ll forever be grateful for all the food at the table
this country’s been at war since i was old enough to think
didn’t start to really think till i was old enough to drink
now that i’m on the right track i’m running faster playing catch up
with my homies looking on, planning weddings playing dress up
buying houses that they don’t expect to share with fifteen people
worrying ’bout star wars sequels, not keeping rights equal
who’s gonna take the weight, it’s me, pile it on
got a list of worries longer than wingspan of pteranodon
might as well stay in h-ll with all my dunnies
who i fight for the same money, but at least we find it funny
even on my best days, i can’t keep the dread at bay
hear a part of me say, i don’t want to live this way

[chorus]
i got friends need picking up
clothes need st-tching up
beats need kicking up
democrats don’t give a f-ck my
tummy needs filling up
my insurance really sucks
and i don’t want to live this way
i got dreams i wanna live
some money i wanna give
some rules i gotta respect
some wins i gotta collect
some alb-ms i wanna tease
victories i wanna seize
that i don’t want to give away

[verse 2]
i can look at twitter for three minutes and lose three years
hard pressed to find three reasons to be here
but y’all are one of them, it’s stunning how you bundle me
if i ever fall i know you’re pushing out from under me
you’ll be bright, you’ll have energy, you’ll do the right thing
make your noise and be poised when the lightning strikes
to ride it past the city lights into the night
yes, i want you to feel that way
first job at fourteen, since then i’ve taken two weeks off
i thought it would pay off, my art would support me
used to push carts in a parking lot and regret that there ain’t a lot in my check and yet the beats i was wreckin’ em sweatin’ and checking ’em while i was inspecting my path, if they gave me ten seconds they would hire my -ss
i would even work for free and wait while they did the math
but now, you ain’t gonna eat that way

[chorus]
i got friends need picking up
clothes need st-tching up
beats need kicking up
you want me to be civil, what?
tummy needs filling up
my insurance really sucks
and i don’t want to live this way
i got dreams i wanna live
some money i wanna give
some rules i gotta respect
some wins i gotta collect
some alb-ms i wanna tease
victories i wanna seize
that i don’t want to give away
i don’t want to live this way
i don’t want to live this way

[bridge]
tell me why, tell me why, tell me why now
tell me why, tell me why, tell me why now
tell me why, tell me why, tell me why now
tell me why, tell me why
tell me why, tell me why, tell me why now
tell me why, tell me why, tell me why now
tell me why, tell me why, tell me why now
why my throat so dry

[outro]
where’s the love? where’s the love?
where’s the love? where’s the love?
where’s the love? where’s the love?
where’s the love? where’s the love?
