Friends And Family

Album: Trik Turner (2002)
  • Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh

    Some call me a loser,
    Some call me a cheater,
    Some say I'm a selfish
    Untalented dreamer
    Cause all I try to do
    Is keep my dreams alive
    Is that so hard to do?

    When you're workin' nine to five,
    I've never been born afraid to die,
    But I'm afraid to leave behind
    The precious life that grows through the sands of time
    Cause Now I've got two daughters and I know they need there father
    To help them make it through/All the devious things that people do

    Cause every moment counts from the good times to the bad
    I don't have time to envy those who've got things that I never had
    Cause the one thing most important is the thing we take for granted
    Until your life is on that line/I think that's the way God had planned it
    So open up your eyes/To make you realize/ that there's some/ Life is money
    But what is money without life? Cause all I need
    Is the air that I breathe and my friends and family
    To believe in me

    It's deep as the abyss where the waters run
    It's deep as the land of the rising sun
    And they won't die
    (Even when their minds are against us)
    Doesn't even matter
    Nothing else matters

    It's deep as the abyss where the waters run
    It's deep as the land of the rising sun
    And they won't die
    (Even when their minds are against us)
    Doesn't even matter
    Nothing else matters

    We bleed the same blood
    We cry the same tears/We have the same fears
    We pass the same gears
    We see the same stars
    We live the same sky
    We pass the same time
    We all live and die

    'Cause friends, family will stick in the blood
    And if you've never felt love than I pray for you cause
    Cause life's full of brothas
    Seven forty sevens
    Who will love us
    Before they go to heaven

    And everything in-between has a meaning
    Some stay connected
    While others keep dreaming

    Looking for that meaning
    But the lost can't be found
    Drop to your calves and break
    Can you hear the sound?

    Do you feel it?
    And do you feel it coming?
    To triple zero
    The hunters are the hunted

    Electrical currents
    Conflict with the spirits
    Ah do you hear it?
    Ah well can you feel it?

    Deep like seven the life brings its intelligence
    Got no time for cleaver
    You're late if there's hesitance
    Put your foot forward and you'll be a helping hand
    Take a step back than your stuck in the quick sand
    And just the toxic keeps us locked in

    A mental jail trapped
    99
    Where your family at?

    (Oh my mind did fail/ oh my mind succeed
    Whatever the outcome is/ Just keep your faith in me
    Just believe in me
    I will be there)

    It's deep as the abyss where the waters run
    It's deep as the land of the rising sun
    And they won't die
    (Even when their minds are against us)
    Doesn't even matter
    Nothing else matters

    It's deep as the abyss where the waters run
    It's deep as the land of the rising sun
    And they won't die
    (Even when their minds are against us)
    Doesn't even matter
    Nothing else matters


    It's deep as the abyss where the waters run
    It's deep as the land of the rising sun
    And they won't die
    (Even when their minds are against us)
    Doesn't even matter
    Nothing else matters


    It's deep as the abyss where the waters run
    It's deep as the land of the rising sun
    And they won't die
    (Even when their minds are against us)
    Doesn't even matter
    Nothing else matters Writer/s: Arthur Taylor Lee, David Lee Bowers, Doug Moore, Sean Garden, Steve Faulkner
