Yeah, it’s a long way home at the end of the road
I’ll be paving my own
Way, to the top,
I be here to stay So take my name, remember this face,
Keep the change and have a nice day And live for the moment, not by the
Past, homie live each day like it’s your last MGK

[Verse:1] All my life, I
Couldn’t fit in, like a bad shoe I was always too square, too cubed, too
Tall, too weird, too blue Forget them high-school’s hotties now I’m too
Cool I guess I came a long way from that young kid The school’s most
Popular lame, no friends, no style, no clothes, no ends Just a bed fell
Asleep, and never woke up again Yeah, and my last prayer was don’t ever let
Me end up like the people that’s down here Cause the one that fear change
Be the one that don’t care Look at themselves and see somebody else in the
Mirror But you can always pick me out of the crowd Loud mouth with my very
Own style And what I know now is don’t ever pretend And live every single
Day like you won’t see it again (Gone)

[Chorus] So take my name, remember
This face, keep the change and have a nice day And live for the moment, not
By the past, homie live each day like it’s your last And if you only had 24
Hours, 1400 minutes before your dreams gone then you better go live it,
Cause whatever you love could be taken away So live like it’s your dying
Day MGK

[Verse:2] I dedicate this to my teachers that never believed in me
And the mother that conceived, but ended up leaving me I just wish you all
Can see me smile, this big’s grin on the TV now And I took it from the
Bottom to the top From the holes in my socks Ramen noodles in the pot Used
To rob them on the block, now they spot me in the drop Middle finger up and
That ain’t gonna stop I used to take orders, now I make bets I used to
Scrub floors, now I sign checks I used to push carts, now I push songs Yea,
I used to be there, now I am so gone I fired myself, found a job myself
Established my name and then I signed myself And when I tell myself, is you
Did this by yourself And when I’m on so long, I’ll be by myself

[Chorus]
So
Take my name, remember this face, keep the change and have a nice day And
Live for the moment, not by the past, homie live each day like it’s the
Last And if you only had 24 hours, 1400 minutes before your dreams gone
Then you better go live it, cause whatever you love could be taken away So
Live like it’s your dying day MGK

[Verse:3]
I wish I could see their faces
When they heard your boy spit Wish I could know what they’re thinking when
They heard my first hit Cause I remember them wishing that I wouldn’t get
Big Now I bet they’re wishing they wouldn’t of said that shit I came out of
A dying city brought back life Everything they said I couldn’t do I did
About twice Mul- tiplied by the bottles that we popped each night That
Equals out to a celebration, bitches more ice Make a toast to the
Underdogs, toast to the team Toast to the fact, we this close to the dream
Pour one for my exes, used to talk reckless But now I push Benzes and rock
Rolexes Came from the city and until they come and get me Turn around and
See the whole east side’s still with me And that’s how we live it, you mans
Don’t change Look, still the kid, still can’t tell me a goddamn thing
[Chorus] So take my name, remember this face, keep the change and have a
Nice day And live for the moment, not by the past, homie live each day like
It’s the last And if you only had 24 hours, 1400 minutes before your dreams
Gone then you better go live it, cause whatever you love could be taken
Away So live like it’s a dying day. Yeah, it’s a long way home at the end
Of the road I’ll be paving my own way, to the top, I be here to stay So
Take my name, remember this face, keep the change and have a nice day And
Live for the moment, not by the past, homie live each day like it’s your
Last
