Wake Up Mr. West(echoes)

(Kanye West)

Uh, Yeah, Uh, yeah, uh, yeah, uh, yeah

Piano drops

And I heard 'em say, nothins ever promised tomorrow today.
From the CHI, like Tim it's the Hard-a-way,
So this is in the name of love, like Robert say,
Before you ask me to go get a job today, can i at least get a raise on a minimum wage?
And I know the goverment administered aids,
So I guess we just pray like the minister say,
Allah Akbar and throw em some hot cars,
Things we see on the screen is not ours,
But these niggas from the hood so these dreams not far,
Where im from, the dope boys is the rock stars,
But they can't cop cars without seein' cop cars,
I guess they want us all behind bars.
I know it.

-Chorus- (Adam Levine)
Uh,And I heard 'em say, nothins ever promised tomorrow today.
(ooooooooo)
And I heard 'em say, nothins ever promised tomorrow today.
(Nothing's ever promised tomorrow today.)
But we'll find a way
(And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe, it hurts but it may be the only way)

(Kanye)
They say people in your life are seasons,
And anything that happen is for a reason,
And niggas gun clappin and keep to squeezin',
And Gran keep prayin' and keep believin',
In Jesus and one day that ya see him,
Till then walk in his footsteps and try to be him,
The devil is alive I feel him breathin',
Claimin' money is the key so keep on dreamin',
And put them lottery tickets just to tease us,
My aunt Pam can't put them cigarettes down,
So now my lil' cousin smokin them cigarettes now,
His job trying to claim that he too niggerish now,
Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now?
I can't figure it out...
I'm Stickin it out....

-Chorus- (Adam Levine)
Uh Uh , And I heard 'em say, nothins ever promised tomorrow today.
(ooooooooo)
And I heard 'em say, nothins ever promised tomorrow today.
(Nothing's ever promised tomorrow today.)
But we'll find a way
(And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe,
It hurts but it may be the only way)

(With every worthless word we get more far away, and nothing's ever promised tomorrow today, And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe,
It hurts but it may be the only way)
(Oooh, ooooh oooh)
(oooooooh, oh, oh, oooh, oh oh oh)

    This is a really inspiring song. I think it means that you should live up today and live it out tomorrow and remember that nothing lasts forever. It's like: I can really describe it.. But it's an awesome song :)
