  • Spinning in circles, live my life without rehearsal
    If I die today my nigga was it business? Was it personal?
    Should this be my last breath I'm blessed cause it was purposeful
    Never got to church to worship lord but please be merciful
    You made me versatile, well-rounded like cursive
    Know you chose me for a purpose, I put my soul in these verses
    Born sinner, was never born to be perfect
    Sucka for women licking their lips and holding these purses
    Back when we ran the streets who would think we grow to be murderers
    Teachers treated niggas as if they totally worthless
    And violent, and hopeless
    I saw but never noticed that a college point is right to be
    'All you can be' posters
    Rest in peace to Tiffany
    I don't know if this is the realest shit I wrote
    But know that the realest nigga wrote this
    And signed it, and sealed it in a envelope
    And knew one day you would find it
    And knew one day that you would come back and rewind this, singing

    I'm a born sinner
    But I die better than that, swear
    You were always where I needed you to be
    Whether you were there or not there (I was there)
    I was born sinning
    But I live better than that (better tonight)
    If you ain't fucking with that
    I don't care (yeah, yeah, yeah)

    Yeah, this music shit is a gift
    But God help us make it cause this music business is a cliff
    I got a life in my grip, she holding tight to my wrist
    She screaming: "Don't let me slip"
    She see the tears in my eyes, I see the fear on her lips
    True when I told you
    "You the only reason why I don't flip and go insane"
    My roof in the pouring rain
    You knew me before the fame, don't lose me the more I change
    Just grow with me, go broke you go broke with me
    I smoke you gon' smoke with me
    Woman's curse since birth, man lead her to the hearse
    I go Bobby you go with me damn
    Listen here, I'll tell you my biggest fears
    You the only one who knows them
    Don't you ever go expose them
    This life is harder than you'll probably ever know
    Emotions I hardly ever show
    More for you than for me
    Don't you worry yourself
    I gotta do this for me
    They tell me life is a test but where's a tutor for me
    Pops came late I'm already stuck in my ways
    Ducking calls from my mother for days
    Sometimes she hate the way she raised me but she love what she raised
    Can't wait to hand her these house keys with nothing to say
    Except

    I'm a born sinner
    But I die better than that, swear
    You were always where I needed you to be
    Whether you were there or not there (I was there)
    I was born sinning
    But I live better than that (better tonight)
    If you ain't fucking with that
    I don't care (yeah, yeah, yeah)

    I'm a born sinner
    But I die better than that, swear
    You were always where I needed you to be
    Whether you were there or not there (I was there)
    I was born sinning
    But I live better than that (better tonight)
    If you ain't fucking with that
    I don't care (yeah, yeah, yeah) Writer/s: ANTHONY PARRINO, CANEI FINCH, IBRAHIM HAMAD, JAMES EDWARD FAUNTLEROY II, JERMAINE L. COLE, JURO DAVIS

Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"They're Playing My Song

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.

Did this Eagle come up with the term "Parrothead"? And what is it like playing "Hotel California" for the gazillionth time?

Steely Dan

Did they really trade their guitarist to The Doobie Brothers? Are they named after something naughty? And what's up with the band name?

Doubt led to drive for Francis, who still isn't sure why one of Status Quo's biggest hits is so beloved.
