Chorus:
You'll forever live on, forever live on
You'll forever live on, forever live on
You'll forever live on, you'll forever live on
You'll forever live on, you'll forever live on

Verse 1:
I never thought that wearing no hoodie, could cause your life.
And I never thought you could just kill somebody and go out the
Same night.
Every dog that you see that bark, don't mean that he bite.
And everything that's black ain't even, everything that's pure ain't
White
Cause you think that I'm doin wrong don't mean that you right.
Cause the ones that you think that won't, them the ones that might.
Some people in this world the system don't like.
When you living what you worth is how they value your life.
I can do all things through christ, who strengthen me.
And even when I pray I pray for my enemy.
And pa said it best "only God can judge me."
Trayvon lil homie, I want you to know you really touched me.

Chorus:
You'll forever live on, forever live on
You'll forever live on, forever live on
You'll forever live on, you'll forever live on
You'll forever live on, you'll forever live on

Verse 2:
Sometimes trying to live right, sometimes it seems so wrong,
Sometimes you tryin to get justice, sometimes it take so long.
But the ones that pose to keep in, be the ones they let go home.
But the ones that hustle and survive, be the ones they hold with no
Bond.
My son supposed to burry me, but I ain posed to burry my son.
You can call me nigga all you want, but you ain't pose to treat me
Like one,
Pose to be able to express my self, and be able to dress how I
Want.
Pose to be able to go where I please, and be able to leave when I'm
Done.
Should I think that you sell dope, just cause you drive a benz.
Should I think that zack in a gang, just cause he sag his pants.
What's right is right, what's wrong is wrong,
Trayvon martin, you'll forever live on.

Chorus:
You'll forever live on, forever live on
You'll forever live on, forever live on
You'll forever live on, you'll forever live on
You'll forever live on, you'll forever live on

    I love this song so much. Not only is it a tribute to trayvon, it is the truth. Plies meant every singlel lyric that he wrote from his heart. Crimes like this disgust me. Justice will be served. God will take care of everything in the end. R. I. P trayvon. You will be missed.

    Trayvon i dont even know u either, but i still hurt because you are black like i am. I hope justice will b e brought apon zimmerman. I hate when people say mean things about you. Everything happens for a reason right, but i know u saying why it had to happen to you. U have to ask god that. When i first heard about that i cried for days i used to go on youtube but i had to stop because of the ugly and hateful comments about you. Trayvon just have fun in heaven. We will meet one day. All respects for you!!! The martin family dont give up!!!

    That just because it seems like it has to be right doesnt mean that they are always in the right. Also that the justice system is all messed up. The way they judge and do things in these day and times are not equal. To other cases such as trayvon.
