Decision

Album: Back on My B.S. (2008)
  • [Chorus:]
    I made a decision, despite all the things that we go through
    I'm going to take more time with you, and be a friend indeed
    I made a decision, that everything will be alright
    Going to stay strong and keep it tight, I'll be there indeed

    Let me talk to you, when it feels like the sun ain't shining bright enough
    It's like the devil's trying to work to give ?
    And though I'm blessed, I still gotta handle of things I go through
    It's good to have a friend, with another perspective to show you
    Someone you know that knows you, and gives you motivation
    Someone that you can go to, and vent your frustration
    We always talk about our peeps, how we be everywhere
    When you need 'em the most, are they really ever there?
    See, every thing be all good when we be havin' fun
    The difference is really needing a friend than having one
    It's good when your peoples are there to help your problems
    And help you smile about it while finding a way to solve it
    Look at hear, let me keep it at 100 and let me tell ya
    How you hold me down is something I genuinely value
    I got a clearer view, and being that you're always here for me I'll be here for you

    [Chorus]

    Well, how you been baby? But I'm sayin'
    Even though we probably link up every now and then
    With minimal convo, look it's real good to see you friend
    Something that we allow that I don't even have to mention
    Is whether or not you got me, that's something that I never question
    Sometimes I feel that the people that I love don't appreciate me
    And some hate to see the shit I've been going through lately
    See you was here, when it started to haywire
    You're still here, walking with me going through the fire
    And I really love you for it, I know you all relate too
    On everything that I believe and I appreciate it you
    And just for that, it don't matter you can put that on my name
    The way you rep me, let me be there just for you the same
    Sometimes the pressure and the pain, it be wearin' me out
    But I thank you for just bein' there and for hearin' me out
    I got a clearer view, I thank God that you're here for me and I'm here for you

    [Chorus]

    I, look in your eye, and I see the pain in it
    Life's a game, maybe the game did it
    I know I changed, they say the fame did it
    Life's changed, maybe the game did it
    Two friends, now in two different places
    And the mister catchin' planes, and you catching cases
    Friendship, we never based it on position
    No matter the game, we both shared the same vision
    Decisions to split us in the place that life seemed to hit us
    I would come to town and never get up, with you
    Around then, things weren't so simple
    I had my own issues that I was trying to get through
    Outside chatter, messing with our mental
    On the chase of ? trust, you can't forget to
    It's the real friends, that you've got to tend to
    No matter how far, just know that I'm with you

    [Chorus]
