“LifeTime” Performance

“LifeTime” Lyrics

I’ve lived a couple lifetimes within my lifetime 
Still surprised I’m in my right mind
could wait a lifetime waiting for that right time 
I play with words in reverse try to rewrite time 
Spent on negativity thoughts weighing heavy mentally 
Cost of what heaven sent to me 
Also the saddest symphony story 
Live for pain in the glory’s 
not your everyday struggles 
Hit the floor and u start to wonder if god really loves u 
Knew that she wasn’t for me 
Wise words from my mother 
Argumentative Horny and 
Always the last rebuttal 
Sprinkle lil trouble ingredients for the scampy 
Cant stand heat? Well I’m Chef Ramsey with the oven  
She would tell u she’s  four weeks 
Ecstatic to be a mother 
Preparation was poorly 
The jobs that I had too juggle 
Probably could of used a four leaf clover 
Cause if I told u the baby was born gone is  
Another tear in a puddle 

What if I told you that 
She knew the baby was dead a month before she gave birth to it 
And she didn’t wanna tell me it because 
She wanted us to still be together 
That’s kinda dark right? 

Yea 

I’ve lived a couple lifetimes within my lifetime 
Still surprised I’m in my right mind
could wait a lifetime waiting for that right time 
I play with words in reverse try to rewrite time 
Spent on negativity thoughts weighing heavy mentally 
Cost of what heaven sent to me 
Also the saddest symphony story 
Live for pain in the glory’s 
not your everyday struggles 
Hit the floor and u start to wonder if god really loves u
Told me he wasn’t for me 
Wise words from my mother 
Invited to the house warming 
She caught the vibes from the other side of the room 
She told me watch who u room with cuz there’s lots of cologne when used to cover up bull shit 
Was plotting on wronging me got clocked in the fucking face 
There’s a lot of it y’all didn’t he see 
Him disrespecting the space I allowed him to lay his head 
he try play me on bread
I told him he had to leave he rather of seen me dead 

What if I told u That
My barber that I’ve known for 4 to 5yrs 
Was rooming with me at one point 
We get into a fight over some stupid shit 
And he stabs me 8 times 
5 times in the back 
2 times in the side 
And sliced my face 

Yea

Vibes vibes vibes vibes don’t 
Lie lie lie lie 
Always go with your gut 
No such thing as bad luck 

Vibes vibes vibes vibes don’t 
Lie lie lie lie 
No such thing as bad luck 
Always go with your gut
