"Story of My Life" as written by Ricardo Ducent, Orville Burrell, Christopher Birch, Bruce A. Brewster and Dave Kelly....
Ah yo son,
I know what you tryna do man,
I know your tryna do,
All that stuff you doin',
I'd a been,
I'd a been through all that you know what I'm saying,
You know your messed up right,
You know your messed up,
Oh, so how you gonna get yourself otta this kid just a second,
We need to talk,
I don't like the path that you've chosen to walk,
I'm not trying to swoop down on you like a hawk,
I just don't want to see mapped out on chalk,
I know what your thinking I see all your thoughts this glory your after I already saw,
But all that you fight for will add up to naught,
Disaster runs faster your gonna get caught,
People will tell you what you wanna hear,
Just means their clever,
And don't face their fear,
I hope what I'm telling you comes across clear cause this is your life,
There's no second chance here,
I don't think I'm perfect or anything near made some mistakes of my own through the years,
That you don't learn from that is my biggest fear,
Don't make me a feeler,
It's too much to bear

[Chorus]

Stains of all my childhood sorrows on the walls of my mind,
Are there any bright tomorrows,
Pain is all I seem to find,
How did I ever get to be here oh the truth cuts like a knife,
Pappa used to tell me about karma that's the story of my life
Sure you believe that I won't understand,
Turn to your friends cause you think that they can,
Remember I wasn't born as a grown man,
These problems been here ever since I began,
You ain't wearing diapers I can't hold your hand,
You've fallin' just let me show you how to land,
If your friends really loved you then it would be grand
Then why ain't they here when you sinking in sand,
Cause been where you wanna go that ain't no joke,
You only hurting your self with all that stuff you smoke,
Shots where you wanna shoot,
Tokes where you wanna toke,
Done my drunk drivin' in it my license revoked,
Did my shop lifting,
Hid stuff in my coat,
Suddenly found myself being a ? skank ho,
It only takes a pebble to start rocking the boat
When trouble comes guess who put the knife to my throat

[Chorus: x2]
