Life is Better

Album: The Renaissance (2008)
  • Life's filled with gray
    But now, it comes clean
    Leaves fall, away
    Hip-hop is playing again
    And it's bangin', too
    Know it's bangin', for you
    Don't stop this feeling I feel
    I just wanna lay around all day
    And feel the breeze upon my knees
    I'm so into your rich history
    Tell me a story to take me away
    Come and take me, oh
    Come and take me with you

    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you
    Life is, better
    Now that, now that I found you

    Uh, uh, one step at a time, a man walked on the moon
    One record got played, Kool Herc said boom
    One minute young man, your time come soon
    We waiting, it was prophesied you loon
