Angel in the Sky

  • [Chorus: x2]
    There's an angel in the sky watching over me

    [Verse 1:]
    They say its always darkest before the dawn
    And that you don't know what you had until it's gone
    I thought I knew what I had but I was wrong
    And thats why I gots to write this song now
    Come on now come on say man I thought it would of been a long time for us
    And many more years on the grind for us
    I thought the future held a lot for us both
    And it was brighter we were super tight
    But finna' be super tighter
    I guess I just assumed we had more time for us to make more music
    And write more rhymes
    But never in my life could I ever have seen
    That I would ever have to lose the other half of my team (for real)
    And take away the glitter the gold and the gleam
    Say man I wonder to myself what does it all really mean
    Nothing without the people you love say man I miss my brother
    But I know he's looking down from above
    And thats an angel

    [Chorus: x2]

    [Verse 2:]
    It all began on Shreveport Ave sittin' off in the den
    Making beats and puttin' paper to pen
    We was determined to win
    And you couldn't tell us different
    Mama West was cool with it
    But Monroe kept trippin'
    It seems just like yesterday sometimes
    Sittin' in ya bedroom writing dumb rhymes
    Man you makin' beats on the insonic
    And we was smokin' dirt weed cause it wasn't no chronic
    I still remember when we started the crew
    It was me Mitchell Queen Jamal Jackson and you
    Started out as 4BM but then we ended with two
    Thats when we introduced the world to the U
    To the G tot the K Underground Kings DJ Byrd Pimp C
    And Bun B we kept it G say word
    Who would'a known back in 92 in 2008
    I'd have to write this song sayin' I miss you but its true

    [Chorus: x2]

    [Verse 3:]
    Just for the record let me go ahead and say
    I love my brother Pimp C
    And man I miss him everyday
    Yeah my heart still hurts
    And the pain still fresh
    But I'ma put God first
    To keep that pressure off my chest
    And remind me that I'm blessed to have had him as a friend
    A ride or die homie that was with me till the end
    Real talk man we was closer than kin
    And I know that I'll never have a partner like that again
    So Chad Butler I just want you to know I keep ya memory close I'm never lettin' it go
    And they gon' always remember that you was here mayne
    Cause I'ma make'em remember thats why I'm here mayne yeah it's still hard
    And I still cry but you and God keep me strong so I'ma still try
    Reppin' this UGK now won't I
    Cause through your music you live forever so, trill don't die

    I know your watching over me
    Last night I saw you in my dreams
    At the crossroads ill see you there [x2]
    My friend my brother till the end
    Cant wait to see you again
    Save a place in heaven for me [x2]
