"Life" as written by Dee Dee Halligan and Junior Torello....
Just like a birdie, I just want to fly free (so high, so high)
And own a piece of land
somewhere somewhere off in a country (ooh oh yeah, listen)

Temperature's like a hundred degrees
Like I got chains on me
Black male in a family of three
Been robbed of my destiny
Reckon I'll fly away
Cause it's too much for the man
Shouldn't have gone down this way
What happened to my master plan?
Cause I can't figure out
I could have been a loved child
Shouldn't have gone down this way

Tell me how did I get life?
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life
How did I get life?
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life

Oh somebody done done me wrong
Done me wrong, me wrong
Now eyes to the ceiling all night long, all night long
Time is slipping away from me
And it ain't no telling when I'll get home
I gotta get home, yea
Just about to see the dollar signs
That close to a piece of mine
Everything was about to be fine

So tell me, so how did I get life?
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life
Tell me, I wanna know now how
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life

Everything (everything)
I hope for (that I hope for)
Is gone now (is gone now)
Buried in the ground (buried in the ground)
Hopes and dreams (my hopes and dreams)
All those things (all those things)
I'll never see (I will never never see)
Said I'll never see (somebody gave me life)

Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life
Life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life
