O.C. - Born 2 Live Lyrics

  • Like the dead end kids we used to play in the streets
  • Never worryin about grief football spelled relief
  • Ronnie ? was the coach for us
  • see he taught us to play almost every single day OK
  • Now on Evergreen was Larry and Mike and Lon
  • My cousin Boo lived there too just to name a few
  • with Sha rone he's bad to the bone Boo's little sidekick
  • And a badass mouth he used to feist it on Harmon Street
  • with Zach Leo and Ed
  • Me Jody and Boop by June, Rocky and then comes
  • Tommy and Cedric, Lamont and Greg, unique in our own right
  • At times we'd fight, but that's a-ight
  • Still, not realizin we had love, it showed
  • when we played, no phony charades against
  • one another, now while I write this song
  • It's like some are still alive and a couple are gone
  • * Chorus * (4X)
  • We're born to live, a life to die
  • Life's so damn short and I wonder why
  • As kids, you're overlookin death
  • It didn't seem important or serious, it just seems curious
  • It was about, wakin to a bowl of cereal
  • Cartoons on Saturday's, karate flicks, and like
  • ridin your skateboard, or bicycle
  • And went as deep as Killa Joe on the corner drinkin Ripple
  • Plus, Puerto Rican kids on the block were cool
  • We got along, we all knew right from wrong
  • By far, we got a dose that life was hard
  • A Spanish we were close with, was killed by a car
  • Shocking, Alberto was hit, on the block and
  • death was spontaneous, his moms was clockin him 'cross the street
  • He just received an award
  • for Little League baseball like an hour before, plus
  • He didn't even get to see the summer set in
  • Dyin all young at the age of seven
  • It opened up my eyes small that the flesh was weak
  • As a kid, thinkin shit like that was mad deep, peep it
  • * Chorus *
  • Now when somebody is gone, that's when you realize how close you was
  • how close you are.. like a star
  • Real deep it takes time to heal
  • And still from time to time you wish you could find the way to forgive
  • and let him know you forgave
  • But they can't feel six feet deep inside the grave
  • What's left, but attend his wake, believin if it was you
  • he'd do it for old time's sake, damn
  • I'm disturbed, by the news when I was told I was sittin
  • Knowin damn well Boo ain't bullshittin
  • My life flashed like big bills of cash
  • and good times we had, now it's all so sad
  • One of my childhood pals hit the road
  • When you take, to the streets, then you die, by the code
  • But in this case, who knows what went down?
  • Bottom line is wishin that he still was around
  • Now he found a spot in my heart, or should I say lobotomy
  • Mike, know you're trapped inside of me
  • And every other brother in Bushwick
  • Who rushed to your side thick, all down with the click
  • Yeah, God Bless he laid to rest
  • Call him Mike Boogie, that's what describes the nigga best
  • * Chorus *
  • We're born to live (4X)
  • Like that y'all
