Foxy Brown – My Life (Cradle 2 The Grave) lyrics

Verse 1 [Foxy]:
From the cradle till now still Fox just a little more mature/ Seen it with my bare eyes did it all before/ Been through hell on earth playin' out my role I was given since birth receptin' it well/ Go hard at them critics they expect me to fail/ Work hard for my fans they expect me to sell/ They suspect I'm livin' well but they don't know the pain I feel/ 5 minutes away from gettin' killed it's ill/ My moms always hug me when I'm leavin'/ I wake up cryin' 'cause death bugs me when I'm sleepin'/ Jam Master died it's like I ain't done breathin'/ Big and Pac gone and look we're still beefin'/ It's uneven we at odds in these days when niggas died over cars and they chains/ I thank God that I'm saved I hold it down in this game now from the cradle 2 the grave
Chorus [Althea]:
From the cradle 2 the grave I wish I knew my life would end up bein' this way
(x2)
Verse 2 [Foxy]:
From the cradle till now I been through it ya'll/ You don't know half the things I been through it dawg/ Pain and sufferation I been through it all/ My heart still cold I been through the storm/ Confused all these years/ Shit we grew all these years I remember me and you on the stairs/ Talkin' 'bout what we gon' do when we big/ Money came into play and best friends went they way/ Shit I wish it never had to go that way/ The price of fame could cost a whole friendship/ Sure we got dollars but it's senseless/ So I pray to God for forgiveness and ask Him to carry me through/ All the stress and drama in this business/ I bare witness I Fox will keep goin' strong until my heart stops/ Will keep flowin' strong with a rap poncop...come on
(Chorus [Althea])
Bridge [Althea]:
As a little girl/ I wish I knew that I/ Would be goin' through the drama that's in my life/ All the suffering/ Everywhere I've been/ How I get myself in all this bullshit I'm in
Verse 3 [Foxy]:
From now until the grave I look back in my life/ I smile and say WOW in amazement/ All these roadblocks wonderin' how did I make it?/ Wonder how I 'came famous/ I'm impressed with me, it's like rumors been obsessed with me/ But the truth never told it was left with me/ And what's left for me is to extend my hand/ If they don't reach then I let them be/ I gotta live my life right but I wouldn't change how I live my life like/ If I could live my live twice/ Ya'll don't understand what Inga's life's like/ A black girl's stress I turn my back to the world and now I'm back to the world a black girl's blessed/ Yeah my fans held me through it/ I was destined to blaze from the cradle to the grave/ Thank God my fam helped me through it, come on
(chorus [Althea])
