"Life" as written by Maurice Delauney and Moses Davis....
Baby I found your letter today
Oh it was so beautiful
Declaring your undying love
So poetically
But it wasn't written for me
So I guess I wasn't supposed to see
Although last night you were loving me
Wanting to spend your life with me
Why couldn't you just talk to me
And say, â??J, you're not the oneâ??
Instead a F-ing wid my head
And now I want you dead
No matter what the consequence

Chorus:
Said I'm bout to do life for you
Got this live or die love for you
And I swear if I can't have you
Then nobody will, nobody will
I'm prepared to do life for you
Put my ass on death row for you
'cause I swear if I can't have you then,
Nobody can, nobody can


Baby what does she do that I don't?
Only one thing I can think of
She's whore and will go where I won't
Tell me why do I
Stand here with this ring on my finger
Is it nothing but you're just another confused
//........// How could you lead me on?
And make me tell daddy you're the one
She can't love you like I do
But you don't love me like I love you so

Chorus:
Said I'm bout to do life for you
Got this live or die love for you
And I swear if I can't have you
Then nobody will, nobody will
I'm prepared to do life for you
Put my ass on death row for you
'cause I swear if I can't have you then,
Nobody can, nobody can


This cannot be the ending, on you I'm depending
This eternal love's in my heart
We just can't be apart, I'm gonna hold on forever
And let you leave me never
You've ripped out my heart, I'm definitely dying
I'm taking you with me, and there no denying

Chorus:
Said I'm bout to do life for you
Got this live or die love for you
And I swear if I can't have you
Then nobody will, nobody will
I'm prepared to do life for you
Put my ass on death row for you
'cause I swear if I can't have you then,
Nobody can, nobody can

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who is involved with another girl but still uses another girl without commiting to her.
    The lyrics to this song are at and extremety of heartbreak and desperation of wanting something you cannot have.
    "Said I’m bout to do life for you
    Got this live or die love for you
    And I swear if I can’t have you
    Then nobody will, nobody will"
    that lyrics is about the person that been used being so desperate that they even consider taking measure and murdering the guy so no-one else could have if as she cant.
    I can really relate to this song because i was once the one that got used. this had a girlfried he had been with for about a year and when i met him i fell for him and he took full advantage of me doing so and i gave him the best of both worlds he had me and his girlfriend. he made me feel worthless and majorly used. i got to a point where i hated his girlfriend for the pure fact that she had him and i didnt and id never even met her. This song is full of meaning for me and i love it.
