"Moment 4 Life" as written by Tyler Williams, Aubrey Drake Graham, Onika Tanya Maraj and Nikhil Seetharam....
I fly with the stars in the skies,
I am no longer trying to survive,
I believe that life is a prize,
But to live doesn't mean you're alive,
Don't worry bout me and who I fire
I get what I desire it's my empire
And yes I call the shots I am the umpire
I sprinkle holy water upon the vampire
In this very moment I'm king
This very moment I slay Goliath with a sling,
This very moment I bring
Put it on everything that I will retire with the ring,
And I will retire with the crown, yes!
No I'm not lucky I'm blessed, yes!
Clap for the heavyweight champ, me!
But I couldn't do it all alone, we!
Young Money raised me, grew up out in Baisley
Southside Jamaica, Queens and it's crazy
'Cause I'm still hood, Hollywood couldn't change me
Shout out to my haters, sorry that you couldn't phase me
Ain't being cocky we just vindicated, best believe that when were done
This moment will be syndicated, I don't know, this night just remind me of
Everything that they deprived me of
Put ya drinks up,
It's a celebration every time we link up
We done did everything they can think of
Greatness is what we on the brink of

I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
'Cause in this moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive
I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
This is my moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive (yeah, yeah, yeah uh)

What I tell 'em hoes bow bow bow to me, drop down to ya knees
Young Money the Mafia that's word to Lil' Cease
I'm in The Dominican Big Papi Ortiz
Doin' target practice all these bitches just aiming to please
Shout out to the C.E.O. five hundred degrees
Shout out to the O.V.O wear rings and fatigues, ow!
Niggas wanna be friends how coincidental
This supposed to be ya'll year we ain't get the memo
A young King, pay me in gold
Forty got a bunch of weed he ain't even rolled
These niggas be droppin' songs they ain't even cold
Weezy on top and that nigga ain't even home, yet!
Yeah, be very afraid
These other rappers getting bodied and carried away
Fuck it me and Nicki Nick gettin' married today
And now you bitches that be hatin' can catch a bouquet, ooh
Yeah, you a star in my eyes, you and all them white girls party of five
Are we drinking a lil' more I can hardly decide
I can't believe we really made it I'm partly surprised, I swear
Damn, this one for the books, man!
I swear this shit is as fun as it looks, man!
I'm really tryna make it more than what it is,
'Cause everybody dies but not everybody lives, ah!

I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
'Cause in this moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive
I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
This is my moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive, for life

This is my moment, I waited all my life I can tell its time
Drifting away I'm one with the sunsets, I have become alive.

I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
'Cause in this moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive
I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
This is my moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive, for life

    General CommentIt's about reaching that moment where you feel like you're on the top of the world.

    Also there's an error in Nicki's lyrics. It's: Greatness is what we wanna brink up.

    it should be: Greatness is what we're on the brink of!

    General CommentThis song, for me, has the most meaning on the album.

    Nicki's basically saying "I was devoted, I deserved this, I achieved this."

    General CommentI love this song-not all of the lyrics,but she's got a few good lines in there,and I love the way she
    sings the chorus cos she's actually singing! :)
    "I wished I could have this moment for life...this is my moment".

    General CommentOnly change in Drake's verse: "Shout out to OVO, ted wings and fatigues"

    OVO (Octobers' Very Own) is what Drake calls himself. Red Wings are boots and fatigues are army pants. (both are what Drake wears)

    General Comment"This song is about 2 kids that grew up on the same block. They shared their dreams of making it as rappers. They laughed together, they cried together. One day they realize that their dreams have come to fruition. Though they know all things come to an end, they celebrate. They wish that they could have this moment for life" - The words of Nicki Minaj. :)
