Life

by

Paul Black

Life is never all that fun
Downward the stress shall come
Always feeling like a bum
Money, ha, I aint got none

Whenever I try to fly
Life seems to pass me by
And there is always some one to hold me down
Down, all the way to the ground
With no hope of getting up
Please no more Iíve had enough
But if I can make it threw
Just how much does that show you

And just what do I have to prove
To someone that said I never could
Even though I said I would
You still never believed
But what will you do when I succeed
Will I help you in time of need
Or will I just watch you bleed
Cause you werenít there to help me
On my path to immortality

Life sends me many ways
Trust in people never stays
It goes as fast as the days

People are only out for themselves
Inside is were the greed dwells
Only bad news sells
And we wonder what is wrong with society
Why is there so much poverty
Well donít ask me Iím just a teen
YOUR CHILD'S FUTURE
But in me you do not nurture
In me you do accuse
In me you do abuse
But just remember one thing
Whoís gonnaí come when your bell does ring
Not I, I will ignore your scream
Cause I was once just a teen
And now your depending on me
When you said I would never succeed


Drinking you away

by

Paul Black

I am a disgrace
Just look at my face
Since you left my life has fell so fast into a deep hell
I wonder if I will ever change
Everything feels so damn strange
Im not the same and I cant seem to drink you away
Ive tried day by day But the pain still remains

I wish youíd just come home
Just call me on the phone
I feel so alone
I think about you all the time
And Cant seem to drink you off my mind

Youíve been gone so damn long
Everything feels so damn wrong
Why r we doin this
Today was the first time without a good-bye kiss
And I continue to reminisce on the times I miss
But Now im off to drink you away
Inside hopin youll come back one day

I take other girls out at night
Then go home and cry, Without a fight
Just wishin it was me your missin
Me your kissen, but once again im stuck drinkin

I saw you today and you looked just the same
Hoping that you came back to stay
I cant continue to live life this way
Everything went right when you were with me
Now everything is misery
You were the one that completes me
Come home please_.im sick of drinking

I cant do anything right without u by my side
And to my life, I wish to die
The drinkin is tearing apart my inside
But I just cant get u off my mind
And to that I drink, continue to sink
Standin on the brink of a breakdown
In the drink Ill always drown
But the loss of you is why I frown.
I now cant stop, drinking to the thought
That Ill never hold you in bed
Dink until dead, never to be fed The love that I once had
And now I lay me down to sleep
The memory of you ill always keep but I just cant seem
To give up this dream so now im just the memory
Due to the drinking
It was the only way to escape
The pain of seein you out on another date
But now I drink you away
Now I drink me away.....
We could have been great

Best there could be

by

Paul Black

you just take one look but never open the book
inside lies the mind of a great genius
his heart constantly bleedin pheinon
for his shot to get of street'n
on his block constanly sounds of a gloc
tic toc goes his clock
hes gotta get free
and maintain his nature to be just another mc
hes not lookin to be anything
just to get up from the depths that contain him
but no one can relate to him
cause to you hes just another thug
just another bum on the run
from the police mon
but inside he knows hes right
to never give up the fight
and he just might make it out alive
if he continues to strive
he shall soon arrive in another life
waiting at the gate heaven shows its face
and he continues to pace in the place
no one said he would create
but just look at what hes made
a better place to play
day by day
and then he awakes
knowing it was all a dream
his destiny allouds me
and makes me see hes not just another wanna be
but someone like you and me
he is named fantasy and without him
there would never be a true MC
so to him i follow my dream
in becoming the best there could be

life is such a drain constantly the pain
strikes the brain, in search for a brighter day
is where I remain, as I obtain the code
to what lifeís hold, what elders know
still the truth never behold the gold that i am in search for
maybe the day shall come in which ill be free from
the ton of bricks that lay upon
my wounded chest, in happiness
i shall become the best, victorious
against all that contest, never rest against the forces that depress
love, hate, envy, jealousy, all things I pray to go away
but constantly sent my way as if doomsday
constantly approaches smashiní all its roaches
as I lay motionless, against the pen
reminisciní there I unleash the feeliní
that one day I will be peeliní
my own skin so dry in hopes that i will fly
but in yet I continue to cry, wishiní to die
knowiní I will never get mine
its all just a waste of time
built internally, for all eternity
never to let it out, but still I not dare pout
just try to let it all out on this paper I release the anger
that builds deep down, I cant stop the sound
of those around that only say I will go down
but not now, for inside I hold the crown
to stay above those that feel no love and continue to hate, for u I pray
one day it will be ok, but for me it will never go away
until I get the pen and start written again
pleadiní that I will stop feignin
for the internal feelin to stop dreamin
and seein something in all this
but in reality this aint shyt
just another opposition, more competition
that Iím facin, but soon again laced in
the depths of hell, the ringing of my bell
this is from the heart, yea aint it swell
but till death due us part
music will always control my heart
and its so hard to get that one shot
when your stuck in the dark
with no hope and no way to cope
to the record company just sayin...nope
just again out the door I go
to write another flow, shit I just dont know
but this is my mind, once again freestylin
depression lay deep inside'n the soul
contiues to grow, to unfold and point me in the path to go untold
am I riches no, but still can be sold
out thereís no doubt, this is what Iím all about
all the rest of you try and clown
try and be hard, but u cant speak from the heart...

Iím not poetic just a song writer
steppin on this scene to see what you MCís think of me
this is me free styling
just sayin a rhyme that flows off my mind
and in due time Iíll get mine
but is it just a waste
livin from day to day
and at night I pray
that I'll get my hit and make it big
show what I know with a whole new flow
no talk about death row
Iím just a stray with no where to go
in hopes that I can continue to cope
with the pain of being insane
I complain that I cant get my shot at the plate
just because of my race
this is boredom in depression
everything you are suggestin
got me second guessin
and questionin whether I should blink
you tell me to do what you think
is right but Iím just tryin to have fun tonight
without a fight
why cant they just leave me alone
no place to call a home
no girl to claim as my own
without a shot then Iím gone
sent to abyss with no one to miss
no good-bye kiss now Iím stranded
I didnít plan it
my face branded on a can HAVE YOU SEE ME
another unsolved mystery committed by society
and they'll never free me of my misery
that completes me and now Iím leaving
bleedin wishin I was succeedin

Do you Dream???

by

Paul Black

Do you think about me
Do you dream in your sleep
Of times we couldnt keep
Times I'll always need
Girl you showed me what love is
With you tender kiss
And your the one I'll always miss

always love you the same
Even if you gain a lil' weight
You'll always be my dream date
But I know your love did change
And I still think of you everyday
Just know I'll never go away
Cause my love remains the same

You was my girl
My whole ####in world
Love and emotions, they begin to twirl
If I cant be your man
I wanna be your friend
til' the end
make you cry never again
a whole new trend
and I'll never forget
those times we spent
But now I just have a pen
just reminicsin'
about late night kissin'
girl those times I'm missin'

Do you think about me
Do you dream in your sleep
Of times we couldnt keep
Times I'll always need
Girl you showed me what love is
With your tender kiss
And your the one I'll always miss

You said you needed freedom
But with me you could have had a kingdom
Get you anything you need
Money, jewelery, everything
I just wish you still loved me
because this is your opportunity
Instead of a memory
We could make history
A man that wasnt supposed to be
Anything
With a girl thats everything
She needs to be
Your still the cutest thing
That Ive ever seen
And you know I wanna shake your tree
But you'll never come back to me
Just a crazed fantasy
Nothin but a dream
now I'm back to reality

Do you think about me
Do you dream in your sleep
Of times we couldnt keep
Times I'll always need
Girl you showed me what love is
With your tender kiss
And you the one I'll always miss
Do you think About me
Do you dream in your sleep
Of times we couldnt keep
Times I'll always need
Girl you showed me what love is
With your tender kiss
And you the one I'll always miss
Always and forever
Never to find another lover
LIKE YOU-

What is color
blue red black white
does it make a difference
everyone wants to take flight
in this game
No gangs to claim
just goin for the fame
money is the main thang
without it you aint gotta say
on whats goin down
money power respect is how im livin now
goin for the crown
and i dont care if your
yellow white black or brown
i see no color
to me your just another
brother
so why cant we chill with each other
we all love the ladies
pink is pink and we make the babies
but men always gotta fight
black on white
why
media is the enemy
lets come together as a family
its society that keeps us fighting
time to fight the government
to get what we want
ive had enough
its now we stand tough
we come together with music
so now i use it
to get my point across
you might think im false
or just another wanna be
that couldnt be anything
without a beat
its time we meet
that way you can see
what i mean
will you just see my skin
or will you listen
as i will for you
hear your troubles
and heal your wounds
cause we all came from a whome
and end it in a tomb
so whats the difference between me and you
Im stuck in nutral
the feelings mutual
i cant get what i need
to feed my family
but this is my opportunity
to spread unity
my one shot to make it hot
wether you like me or not
your gonna lose yourself in the music
you cant refuse it
That one second your not in your life
your not holdin that knife
we need no violence
just an alliance
of those that can flow
to spread what we know
its time to respect
and protect
the youth of our nation
racism is what there facin
time to embrace them and change them
Make them color blind
we've all stood in the wellfare line
and its time

Theres no color brother
no us against each other
but against another
we'll fight, no black and white
its time we make our children see
the true meaning of unity
and not poverty
do u agree
or do you still see
the color between you and me
F### the white and black
its time we react
against those that tax
and stab our backs
with what they call facts
i got kids comin up
and ive had enough
time to outbluff there stuff
and get free from the cuffs
that society creates
make the future that awaits
so all our kids can play
time to eliminate
the death rate
increase the birth date
and f### till were all gray
no color....its time to pray
That one day we will become a united race

Takin those drives

by

Paul Black

Takin those drives to clear my mind
with no where to go, i sit alone
just me and my microphone, deaf tone
for no one could hear me, no stage to cheer me
my eyes constantly teary, for ive gave up on theory
its always fallin through, nothin that i could do
will change the past subdued, and i have no clue
what lies ahead, indeed could be the death bed
but instead i worry not
just a forgotten thought, that god once brought
written, in a form submitten me to listen
but what will be will be,
just hope no ones forgotten me...

Only a man like me

by

Paul Black

I believe that I can, but inside I know I cant
And I want to so bad
To become the man to always make you glad
But I know I can only make you sad
Only a man like me can do that
Only a man like me

Only a man like me can make you see
Just a little more is what you need
Find some one better I beg you please
I am down on my knees
Asking that you find some one that can make you happy
Cause only a man like me has so much jealousy
Only a man like me

Only a man like me can make you see that you deserve better
You need to float away on a feather
Like that of a bird
Because you I will continue to hurt
Words that I donít mean I continue to blurt
Six feet in the dirt
Is where I belong
And with me you will continue to yearn
For more that you deserve
Only because a man like me cant give you your turn
Only a man like me
Only a teen like me
Only a boy like me
Can give up his dream
Only a boy like me
Can make you unhappy
ONLY ME :_(

Boredom in Depression

by

Paul Black

Troubled times are all that I will face
Never happiness will I taste
Because with depression I will always be laced
Money is always the true case
Never having enough to take out my date
Always waiting at heavens gate
Please God come and take me away
From this place that I do so much hate
Take me away to a place with no rainy days
A place were I can continue to play
Without ever having to worry about my true fate

I have always been a failure
I have always been to immature
But one day I do want to become pure
It is only in one, only in her
That I can find the cure
Only in her that I feel secure

No one can see the real me
No one will take the time to see
What does really occur in my feelings
My confidence they are stealing
But what they can never take is my dream of being
A successful man, that is what I am achieving
And I am the only one believing
The only one still dreaming

I need some one to share my life
Some one to be my wife
Not some one to stab me in the back with a knife
Right where it hurts, that one special part
In my heart
Where the depression does lay
But with you it all goes away
So please babe say you will stay
Just one more day

Just thought i would say

by

Paul Black

Hey babe, I just thought I would tell you I love you
You cant understand the way I feel for youó
And I tried so hard for you to want me too
But just like everything else, it fell through
Didnt have the macking skills that I wanted to--
But now I have you and I dont know what to doó
I have never felt like this before
Your certainly not just another tour--
It is only in you that I do adore
Only in you that I live for
And yeah, im sure you've heard this all before
But without you, I simply care no moreó
When I am with you, all problems go away
I no longer feel astray--
I wanna treat you like a queen
Buy you necklaces and diamond rings
But I aint got the money to do all those things
I cant even show you my true feelings
Its sad, the only way is through a pen
But I just cant wait to see you again--
I pick up the phone but your not home
God I really hate bein' alone
I wish it could be summer again
So I could touch your beautiful skin
Making my day cause your always smilin'
But without you I'm constantly cryin'ó
Baby with you, I feel like a lucky man
When you hold my hand
It sends me to a fantasy land
Where everything I want comes true
And baby I only have eyes for you--
I will never do anything to harm you
And hopefully soon
You will realize what I say is true
There isnt anything that I wouldnt do--
But now I'll stop buggin' you
I hope that you finish your homework soon
Cause I really feel like talkin' to you
And tellin' you that I thought I would say I LOVE YOU

What is Love

by

Paul Black

Is it just something we say?
With no true meaning from day-to-day
Is it just fake?
A word made to make it all okay
Would we make it without the word?
Could it be possible we stay alert
To the true feelings that do occur
Or are they just a blur_

I never believed in love at first sight
Until I met that love of mine
And now I know what love is
The only way to explain is with a kiss

Love cannot be described
It is just something that arrives
My whole life Iíve been deprived
Of the feeling that lay deep inside

I now know love is not just something said
It is something that is meant
My whole life I have spent
In search for feelings that are true
My search is over cause I found you
The only thing left to say is_ I love you_

You showed me what love is
You showed me with your tender kiss
No longer am I falling into abyss
Cause if I did Iíd have you to miss

I love you so much youíll never know
Having you around never wanting to go
You have changed everything about me in the blink of an eye
Now your going to college going to say good-bye
But because of you I can say otherwise
No good-bye just I love you
I hope we can make it through
The difficult time that weíre about to
But Iíll fight the whole way, to be able to say
I LOVE YOU

Let me forget

by

Paul Black

There are those I regret
Those I try to forget
But in the truth comes forgiveness
If I fess up then comes happiness
But till truth shears its grim face
In hiding Iíll continue to pace
And to the ones I didnít know
Your face shall forever show
In the place I no longer go

A tear as if immortality
Beating at the mind with brutality
There is nothing to say or be done
Life forever no fun, when a tear is all to come--
If one tries to become another to impress
One can only become depressed--
In distress only lies the best of immortality
And no longer human morality
For those around only cause despair
Rocking alone sits an empty chair--
And if one continues to care
Their tears will never dismiss
Falling ever so fast into the great abyss
For all eternity, never to die
Immortality, continues the sigh

Falling in Rain

by

Paul Black

Rain, is the creator of pain
For it is never tame, and whom is there to blame
For it is quite never the same--
Drifting from day to day, and what shall I say
To those in which fall astray--
Itís just another rainy day

sometimes

by

Paul Black

Sometimes i am faced
with decisions i dont wanna make
when familiies brake
and when lives are at stake
the only thing i wanna do is run
i dont wanna be caught up in the middle of this one
its no fun
but i just cant run
i am forced to stay
by a power i cannot state
this isnt what i need
i need someone to love me
i need a family
mabye made of friends
it dosent really matter in the end
im going through hell
life sure aint swell
but what do you know about this one
this aint a game for someone to win
this is about me and avoiding sin
i lost everything i had
my mom and my dad
the woman i so dearly love
they all just flew away on a blackened dove
i would do anything to have it back
but knowledge of how is what i lack
if maybe i just had my girl
maybe i could start a whole new world
i could start my own family
with the woman i adore
the only thing that i live for
i am now getting off topic
but theres so much in my head
sometimes wishing i was dead
i cant get it out
all the thoughts cloud
like that of a rainy day
my whole life has just fallin away
Im in school
trying to be better than any of you
but my life holds me down
it keeps me with a constant frown
dark in gloom
like an all black bedroom
theres no smiles
just miles and miles
of road to over come
thats it_i quit___im done

So Long

by

Paul Black

Still tryin to figure out where the hell we went wrong
it's been so damn long
since i've been touched
since i've been loved
i need it once again
but now you just wanna be friends
so i must let you go
this i do know
but i just can do it
it's so hard
to forget how far
we actually went
all my money was spent
on things we enjoyed
but all my good days are now destroyed
my life's fell apart
the woman i love stole my heart
put it in a cart
and pushed it down the isle
left me sickened with denile
shock, the love is out of stock
drained, my love has turned to pain
you left an unforgettable stain
that i can never get out
turned me into a pout
depression is what i got
it would've been better if i was shot
you wont even let me hate you
you just make me remember you
and all the fun we had
truley i am glad
that i could meet a beautiful angel
perfect woman with every angle
with the capabilities to make me fly
so high so high
then to drop me to die...

My baby

Paul Black

Your my baby
perfect in every way
as a dream you just seem
to have all the qualities
and damn look at that body
you taste so good
baby your my favorite food
can i get a lick
its makes me sick that your so beautiful
how on earth could i get this luck
first sight i was stuck
in a wonderland trance
it just took one single glance
and i just wanted that touch of your hand
your soft lucious skin
your lack of sin
perfect in every way
you know you'll always be my baby
your the only one for me
baby your my destiny
and ill never give up
cause im in need of your love
sweet thing your my everything
wake you up with a Bang
and i know you know what im sayin
you make happy
and this i know
please my baby dont ever go
i swear ill never make you cry again
i just wanna keep you smilin'
that sparkle in your eye
god damn im one lucky guy
and imma keep you forever
well maybe
but your my baby
