Dead and Gone (T.I. featuring Justin Timberlake)
  • 01. Dead and Gone Feat. Justin Timberlake
  • Ay, lemme kick it to you right quick man
    Not on some gangsta shit man on some real shit
    Anybody who been through the same thing
    I'm sure you feel the same way

    Oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone
    And oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone, dead and

    Ever had one of them days wish you would have stayed home
    Run into a group of niggas who gettin' their hate on
    You walk by, they get wrong, you reply then shit get blown
    Way out of proportion way past discussion
    Just you against them, pick one then rush them
    Figure you get jumped here that's next
    They don't wanna stop there now they bustin'

    Now you gushin', ambulance rushin'
    You to the hospital with a bad concussion
    Plus you hit four times but it hit yo spine
    Paralyzed waist down and ya wheelchair bound
    Never mind that now you lucky to be alive
    Just thinkin' it all started fussin' wit three guys
    Nigga pride in the way but your pride is the way you can fuck Around get shot down any day

    Niggas die everyday, all little bullshit
    Dope money, dice games, ordinary hood shit
    Could this be cuz of hip-hop music
    Or did the ones with the good sense not use it?
    Usually niggas don't know what to do when they back against the wall
    So they just start shootin'
    For red or for blue or for blow I guess
    From Bankhead at the old projects

    No more stress, now I'm straight
    Now I get it, now I take time to think
    Before I make mistakes just for my family stake
    That part of me left yesterday
    The heart of me is strong today
    No regrets I'm blessed to say the old me dead and gone away

    Oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone
    And oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone, dead and

    I ain't neva been scared, I live through tragic
    Situations could been dead lookin' back at it
    Most of that shit didn't even have to happen
    But you don't think about it when you out there trappin'
    In the apartments hangin', smokin' and rappin'
    Niggas start shit next thing we know we cappin'
    Get locked up then didn't even get mad
    Now I think about that what a life I had

    Most of that shit look back just laugh
    Some shit still look back get sad
    Thinkin' my home boy still be around
    Had I not hit the nigga in the mouth that time
    I won that fight I lost that war
    I could still see my nigga walkin' out that door Who would of thought I'd never see Philant no more Got enough dead homies I don't want no more

    Cuz a nigga his jump cost me more
    I'd a took that ass whoopin' out for sure
    Now think before I risk my life
    Take them chances to get my stripes
    A nigga put his hands on me alright
    Otherwise stand there talk shit all night
    Cuz I hit you and you sue me
    I shoot you get locked up poor me

    No more stress now I'm straight
    Now I get it now I take time to think
    Before I make mistake just for my family stake
    That part of me left yesterday
    The heart of me is strong today
    No regrets I'm blessed to say the old me dead and gone away

    Oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone
    And oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone

    I turn my head to the east, I don't see nobody by my side
    I turn my head to the west, still nobody in sight
    So I turn my head to the north, swallow that pill that they call pride
    That old me's dead and gone but the new me will be alright
    I turn my head to the east, I don't see nobody by my side
    I turn my head to the west, still nobody in sight
    So I turn my head to the north, swallow that pill that they call pride
    That old me's dead and gone but the new me will be alright, 'cause

    Oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone
    And oh hey, I've been travelin' on this road too long
    Just tryin' to find my way back home
    But the old me's dead and gone
    Dead and gone, dead and..
