lyrics

Back in the day,
As far as I remember,
I made mistakes.
And I admit 'em.
You see me now,
Know I gotta get it.
The good die young.
I'm Young & Living.

Pops wasn't there to guide my steps.
Momma in the kitchen doing hair tryna provide her best.
Women can't play quarterback.
But she in the huddle.
She said youngin',
go run with this roc and never fumble.
Boy meets world, what is everybody mad at.
If your things nice, people grab that.
They gotta have that.
The haters was something to laugh at.
Bite and jab at.
It makes you wanna pick up a knife and start to stab back.
Those with no future, want you to see your doom too.
and a product of your environment,
sometimes can consume you.
They just living a slow death, taking long to die.
Man, I reflect off that, and only the strong survive.

Back in the day,
As far as I remember,
I made mistakes.
And I admit 'em.
You see me now,
Know I gotta get it.
The good die young, right.
I'm Young & Living.

I'm young & Living (x4)

Living (x3)

Can I take you right back to the start?
When a youngin' like me used to only wanna dream
about the money and the cars.
I would sit up on the porch.
When a car passed by, I'd be like thats mine.
I'd be like thats mine.
When the kids walk by my car,
they be screaming out to their other friends,
they be like, thats mine!
I be looking at them right throughout my window like,
you don't even know what I've been through.
Hoops of fire that I jump through,
so my coupe and ride, that, you can want too.
Get a little older, where your friends now?
Best friends turn into pen pals.
Everybody wanna take a big mile.
Don't nobody want to take an inch out.
I don't do it for the fame, but the lights gon' get me.
I just do it for my name, so I gotta put the message in the lyric.
Spend money when I wanna and that's my decision.
Say the good die young huh, well I'm young and living.

Back in the day,
As far as I remember,
I made mistakes.
And I admit 'em.
You see me now,
Know I gotta get it.
The good die young, right.
I'm Young & Living.

I'm young & Living (x4)


I'm a lyrical killa from the village.
I don't believe in limits, when I drive I kill the ceiling.
Gotta see the sky at all time in my vision.
This is for my homies, gotta get up, gotta get it.
I don't believe in luck. I believe in working hard.
Better yet, I don't believe in luck,
I believe in the work of God.
This for the ones who still struggling.
Still stuck in the same old spot that I left you in.
There's a reason I don't mess with ya.
There's a lesson in it. I'm just a messenger.
I'm just a messenger.
Don't mess with me I won't mess with ya.
I came too far and I worked too hard for you to mess me up.

Back in the day,
As far as I remember,
I made mistakes.
And I admit 'em.
You see me now,
Know I gotta get it.
The good die young, right.
I'm Young & Living.

Back in the day,
As far as I remember,
I made mistakes.
And I admit 'em.
You see me now,
Know I gotta get it.
The good die young, right.
I'm Young & Living.

I'm young & Living (x4)
