"All Good Things" as written by Edwin M. Jr. Hayes, James D. Clark, Aaron Joseph Pointer and Michael Troy....
[Abstract Rude]
I'm saying though it may not have all been good, but,
It was definitely good some of the time,
In the time that it was good

I had you first, they had you second,
It took many days before I saw you naked,
I respected that, the average cat would hit and never call you back,
But that ain't me, I had to get in contact

I courted you, I can't believe I was able to have the fortitude
She high-maintenance, but down-to-earth
Found in her what no other woman had to be my lady on a steady basis,
Look at me chasing till I caught it

So much body, my naughty girl, with me tonight, yes,
Sexy in the black, innocent in the white dress
A stimulating conversation piece, plus yeah,
She hate it when I'm out of commission for weeks

Memories that I don't wanna forget,
A lot of shoulda, woulda, coulda, I ain't gonna regret, but uh,
We did invest a lot of time in each
Other, I can't believe the love contract's breached

Like I said it was good some of the time, know what I'm saying,
Cause the good times don't last,
Like love, youth, wealth, life,
Togetherness, health and our very last night

[Chorus]
We once had love, the time has passed,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
The young get old, life's too fast,
Cause all good things, they say, never last

Once was rich, now I got no cash,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
The good die young, and that's so sad,
Cause all good things, they say, never last

[Mikah 9]
You can't take none of it with you

It's such a pretty picture when you first get hitched,
I miss the way you was before you switched,
Call it the honeymoon period, till your voice hits a certain pitch,
Then the eclipse, sunny days to rainy ways

Drained my energy, running out of my own house,
All because of your mouth, I was a devout, loyal spouse,
Now I cruise the couch, with hotel vouchers and food stamps,
Lousy outlook on you, tramp

I've been ousted, flowers grow, bloom and die,
Hang them upside-down to dry,
Money comes, money stacks,
Till they hit you with that tax

People kick it, then they kick rocks or kick the bucket back to the essence,
Magazine queen, so serene, so supreme,
Till I woke up from the dream,
Now I'm hoping she'll just give me back my computer screen and the keys to my machine

To keep some things, you gotta let em go to grow,
Some good things don't last

[Abstract Rude]
Like love, youth, wealth, life,
Togetherness, health and our very last night

[Chorus]
We once had love, the time has passed,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
The young get old, life's too fast,
Cause all good things, they say, never last

Once was rich, now I got no cash,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
The good die young, and that's so sad,
Cause all good things, they say, never last

[Aceyalone]
Damn, it was beautiful

In and out, without a doubt, but I was stupid, though,
But I don't kill you, I just make you sweat,
But I regret to let it go as far as that, see,
Love is live when you're young, and better when you're older

And instead of the cold shoulder, should've tried to hold her,
But "Hold on" is what they say, and it's what you told her,
But you can't hear the truth cause you're running your motor,
Top of the world, baby, we did it, I wish it could

Last forever, and stay committed,
One of the best times in my life, I admit it,
Still, they take em away and they break it up, instead, they better
Savor the moment, remember every component

Analyze the skies cause you don't own it,
That's right, forward forever, backwards never, but I
Think back a little just to get my mind together,
And every now and then I read an old letter

Don't take for granted the time you have with your loved ones,
Cause some things don't last

(Abstract Rude)
Like love, youth, wealth, life,
Togetherness, health and our very last night

[Chorus]
We once had love, the time has passed,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
The young get old, life's too fast,
Cause all good things, they say, never last

Once was rich, now I got no cash,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
The good die young, and that's so sad,
Cause all good things, they say, never last
