lyrics

Time moves past in the blink of an eye
Life moves faster than thinking of why
These years turn to drops of a baby's tears
And I forget to remember that the way is clear

When John Lennon died
I had just been born
Imagine all the people
who had started to mourn
Ron Reagan was fading the welfare system
So the streets started talking
And folks were listening
There was Magic and Bird they were bringing the game back
Sugar Hill Gang a bunch of singers who claimed rap
Cold war cold front started to warm
And everybody in the free world started to yawn

It was boy meet world on my side of things,
I couldn’t walk couldn't talk live the life of kings
Mom and dad had to work so our bellies were full
Plus my big sister was four and heading for school
I was mommy’s little angel smiles and hugs
Best friends with the world seeing miles of love
Miles above Any type of worldly concern
The only world that I touched
Was the world that I yearned

Time moves past in the blink of an eye
Life moves faster than thinking of why
These years turn to drops of a baby's tears
And I forget to remember that the way is clear

When Freddy Mercury died I was a sixth grade star
Trying to be like Mike up in the mix, played hard
Everybody releasing that Aids was real
And it don't discriminate over age or field
Wall Street was recovering from being so burnt
Cause we found out that the greed from the 80’s can hurt
And the wall had fallen in recent times
Mandela got his freedom a pleasing sign

I was hitting puberty so the girl thing was new to me
Couldn't dress fly too broke
But was soon to be
Mac bound but for then
I just played the background track down other kids vibin' off the rap sound
Pops had an accident at work his shoulder got separated debt related Problems showed up
We all pulled through
Had to fight and forage
Cause my big sis Erica went right to college

Time moves past in the blink of an eye
Life moves faster than thinking of why
These years turn to drops of a baby's tears
And I forget to remember that the way is clear!!!

When Big L died
I was R rated
All faded
Booze hound thinking out dated
Hip hop started sewing up the airwaves
Bill Gates' dream covered all of the fairways
And Clinton was thinking cigar and broads
Were a much better policy than starting wars
M.J. had retired
But only for the second time,
Nas had the crown and Jay-Z was next in line

I was perfecting mine,
Open mics
And free styles hanging out
With some hopeless types
So meanwhile mom and dad thought I couldn't be reached,
That I was Throwing it away, that I couldn't be teached
But I found my true path in the nick of time
So I can make em' both proud even Spitin' a rhyme
Ain't going out like that so I did it like this
I followed in the footsteps of my big sis

Time moves past in the blink of an eye
Life moves faster than thinking of why
These years turn to drops of a baby's tears
And I forget to remember that the way is clear
So clear yeah
