DMX – No Sunshine lyrics

Its dark and hell is hot

Aint no sunshine when its on
Only darkness every day
Aint no sunshine when its on
Cuz when its on, ya niggaz gonna be gone
Every time cuz we don't play

Who turned out the lights?
Is what niggaz be sayin
Now you don't wanna fight
But ya niggaz be playin
Thinkin its alright keep playin with that road
And you gonna know the night
When you layin in that cold
Dirt gettin tossed in your grave
Now its all over
Preacher said you was brave
But now its all over
You just one of the many, plenty I done gave it to
(*boom*) aint no savin you
No matter how many tears your moms cried
Aint gon bring your ass back
Plus in hell, you gon fry
Why? But now the only 2 releative questions
Is do we bury him or burn? Any suggestions?
Either way, you up out of here for good
Now when niggaz mention you name
They knockin on wood
Did I, get my, point across?
Another body on the shotte
Another joint I toss

Aint no sunshine when its on
Only darkness every day
Aint no sunshine when its on
Cuz when its on, ya niggaz gonna be gone
Every time cuz we don't play [repeat 4x]

There aint no sunshine
When the dark man comes out
And I want mine
So I plan to keep my gun out
We got four 9s
So niggaz run in and run out
But I bust mine
Cuz Id like to hear some shots
+get at me dog+ niggaz know how its goin dizzy
When it comes to that flow, I gets busy
Who is he? Dark man of the unknown
(grrr arf) one dog, one bone
Now who aint goin home? Looks like you
You hear strike 1, talkin shit, strike 2
Wont be a strike 3, cuz I don't play fair
Ima look you in your eye
While he hit you from the rear
Be like yeah, holdin you up cuz you fallin
The lord aint comin till niggaz stop callin
You was ballin a minute ago
In it for dough
Till it was yo, I swear to god, I didn't know


And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
Whatchu think you gon get
fuck around with my dough
Just so it aint no mistakes, this is my show
One (one) two (two) three (three) here I go
Your shit is quick and your shit is sleek
But this shit is thick and when you hear this shit
Damn right I can finish shit
If you caught that verse without a rewind you can see mine
But you be blind, Ill do it 360, come up from behind
Tap you on the shoulder, have you turnin around
Hit you with somethin that Ill have you burin the ground
Be like damn aint nothin left of money, but a pile of ash
Life is good, so please enjoy it, while it lasts
Cuz you know aint got much longer to go
The quicker you go depends the stronger the flow
When niggaz know I don't give a fuck, right or wrong
There aint no sunshine when its on
