Lookin' out my loft windows man my dreams became true Lookin' at the mirror, wondering if it's the same dude Lookin' at my closet wondering if it's all about clothes Look right next to me, wondering if it's all about Hop in the car and asked the Onstar where this life goes And I drive so fast I blur the light post They say Drive Slow, I say "I know" Then errrr, away I go And the way I flew In this year or two I know this is what God put me here to do But in this excitement You just might miss A shorty with a demo like "Hey, you might like this" And see He Remind me of me Just a year ago Now he Tellin' me I'm his her-ro-oh I took his Cd and asked him what he's lookin' for He said, "Man, I don't know. Maybe a miracle"
[Patti Labelle] Time, they say (true story, [kanye west]) There ain't no way Your dreams are gone see the light of day Don't believe That you can't achieve Whatever you're after You can't be swayed By the simple minds That wanna hold you down And in his time When you Get with We'll be not far behind
[Hook: Patti Labelle] If you listen to the sermons And ask the Lord for guidance You will see the many blessings (blessings you have received) When you give Him all the glory (glory) Gonna talk to, don't ignore thee (ignore thee) Listen to all the stories
You can do anything
[Consequence] Look at my injured arm My shoulder I know he's been warning me To stay out the clubs where the police and warrants be Cause that will lead to prison where the inmates and wardens be But a lot of times we follow them when we know we ought to leave And stay up in the party when we know that we ought to leave But the women be callin' me The liquor be callin' me Bitches be Cons, took a stripper named Diamond If he gonna be conflicted no different than diamonds And the Lord is the only one that he can confide in So I don't know how you think that you could deny Him I open up the Book and the message is clear But I still be in the hood so the pressure is there To grab at that fast money just to get out of Queens To bag up the work that they give out to fiends But that ain't gonna work if I say what I mean Cause at the end of the day I'm trying to Get Out My Dreams
