Never Die

Written by Vic S.

Music by DJ Pain

Chorus (Bobby Womack):
Bright as the stars that shine

Dark as the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never never die

And I couldn’t be nothing you’d fall in love with
Why?
‘Cause the stench of my thuggin’ is just too troubling
I came up hustlin’
Had that product bubbling
Pitched it to the block
Wasn’t in it for the props

You gotta separate us from all these actors
I’m in my prime
And failure is not a factor
I was snatched up out the streets,
And where I landed after
Is a place where they tell me I’m backwards

But I can’t get next to the way y’all think
There’s lies in your eyes
I’m seeing it when you blink

Y’all caught up in machinations
That these dubious cats are creating
And truly it’s actually flagrant
How much they seek validation…
Still, it’s only the shallows that they wade in

They ain’t prepared to swim in the deeps
Their thoughts are too cheap
The gems (wisdom) that we’re dropping costs too much to keep
Their minds are asleep
That’s why they’ll never be

Chorus (Bobby Womack):
Bright as the stars that shine
Dark as the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never never die

All these liars are chasing fame
That’s why I could never get next to Shane
There’s too much integrity in my frame
You can see it in my actions
We never had to prove we were men

I watched that boy abuse those women
His hands all over them he misused those women
He was manipulating outcomes
There’s just deception in all his lessons
(And those like him) There’s arrogance in their presence
They’re cursing all these blessings

There’s nothing credible in their prophecies
I ought to be
Approaching these fools hostilely
To possibly
Put a stop to these toxic anomalies

But I can’t afford distractions
Or risk losing traction to address these factions
Back in the day we would have sent them to God
But the Spirit restrains me
I still got work in the car
I hear the whispers
I know who y’all are

Do you know who we are?

Chorus (Bobby Womack):
Bright as the stars that shine
Dark as the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never never die
