Back 2 Life

Album: Back 2 Life (2012)
  • Steady, are you ready?
    Back to life, back to reality
    Back to life, back to reality

    Goin’ through a dark place, dark time
    And I couldn’t even see the light (light)
    Had my back up against the wall
    I was feelin’ like do or die (die)
    But what don’t kill me make me stronger
    I know it’s gonna be alright (alright)
    So we celebratin’ here tonight (tonight)
    Yea we celebratin’ life tonight

    The time is now
    Gotta make it count
    So before we die
    Let’s go all out

    We gotta live it up (up up up up)
    Champagne in my cup (cup cup cup cup)
    DJ turn it up (up up up up)
    Bring me back 2 life, back 2 life
    Yea we gotta live it up (up up up up)
    You know we don’t give a what (what what what what)
    So till my time’s up (up up up up)
    Bring me back 2 life, back 2 life
    Back 2 life

    Back to life, back to reality
    Back to life, back to reality

    All the tears and all of the prayers
    Every single one of y’all showed me (showed me)
    So the love I’m givin’ back to y’all
    Is bigger than the whole country
    From England, to Japan, to Jamaica
    To right down to MIA
    We don’t stop, we go hard
    Let’s get it in cause we young and free

    The time is now
    Gotta make it count
    So before we die
    Let’s go all out

    We gotta live it up (up up up up)
    Champagne in my cup (cup cup cup cup)
    DJ turn it up (up up up up)
    Bring me back 2 life, back 2 life
    Yea we gotta live it up (up up up up)
    You know we don’t give a what (what what what what)
    So till my time’s up (up up up up)
    Bring me back 2 life, back 2 life
    Back 2 life

    Back to life, back to reality
    Back to life, back to reality

    Here’s the king!

    OK, them suckas tried to bury me
    Jesus had to carry me
    Middle finger to the reaper, nigga ain’t no scarin’ me
    Apparently, you don’t understand who I am (who I am)
    It’s trouble man, hundred grand in my pants
    Whippin’ dropheads hardtops fit to sell Maybach’s
    Maserati’s, Ferrari’s, that money I don’t play by
    Presidents stop me, imagine if I stay down
    Still shinin’ on them make them haters pull they shades out
    When tragedy strikes, I struck back
    Lookin’ for me to roll over and die
    Who does that?
    Left a nigga for dead, come back to life
    I guess this is me ballin’ in the afterlife
    Let’s get it

    Back to life, back to reality
    Back to life, back to reality

    We gotta live it up (up up up up)
    Champagne in my cup (cup cup cup cup)
    DJ turn it up (up up up up)
    Bring me back 2 life, back 2 life
    Yea we gotta live it up (up up up up)
    You know we don’t give a what (what what what what)
    So till my time’s up (up up up up)
    Bring me back 2 life, back 2 life
    Back 2 life
