Posted in categories: Lyrics


A nice, simple, life

My dreams seemed quite attainable
No grandiose fantasies of fame
Just me, a wifey-boo
A few chirrin and a steady
Paycheck is all I wanted
And I had a nice, simple, life-plan to ensure
I would become the man I’m supposed
To be but there was one thing
I forgot to factor in; Life

See somehow in all my preparation
I forgot to prepare for the things
You can’t prepare for
Then all of a sudden someone
Bust down my door
Like popos at a crack house
And next thing I know
I’m on the ground with my
Arms held behind my back
Begging Death not to murder me
’cause I was sure it was he who had come
But a voice cried out
“No this is Life, son!”

Life get off me right now!
This is not part of the plan!

Then Life laughed and said, “Who told you that
You tell me what to do?”

I paused, and before I could respond Life answered
“Exactly, now, what you up to?”

“What am I up to?! I was trying to live
Out my nice, simple, life-plan

Until someone named Life came in
And started ruining my life.”

“Ruining your Life? I am your life
And I might not be what you
Expected but difficult is not synonymous
With destructive, I’m not ruining anything
And you might think your
Nice simple plan got me
All figured out but
I’m only nice sometimes, I’m definitely
Not simple, and good luck trying to plan for me
So before you start with the accusations you better recognize
Who you talking to. My NAME is Life, and you got me all riled up
But I’m on your side
So, you can lie here arguing with me for
The rest of me, or you can get up and we’ll get outta here
I suggest you choose quickly ’cause death is on
His way and we ain’t got time to waste.”

“Ohhh my bad Life
No disrespect
But I got one question
Where are we goin’?”

Life grinned with confident uncertainty
As he walked by faith toward the open door

Inhaling a deep breath of himself, he confessed

“Only God Knows.”
