Wyclef Jean – When A Rose Dies lyrics
[Chorus: Raquel]
When the rose dies
Another gun will go
When the rose dies
When the rose dies
Another gun will grow

[Bridge: Wyclef Jean]
RICO, RICO, now they're running from the narcos
Snitches got the court looking like a side-show
And the jury give the sentence with their eyes closed
When a rose die, another gun will grow

[Verse 1: Wyclef Jean & Raquel]
The irony of life sometimes it makes me think
I'm only fresh for a second then the flesh stinks
Its back to the Earth with the fire ants
Only thing I leave behind is my fingerprints
(When the rose dies)
Yeah, they caught my cuzzo with the fingerprints
Yeah, I ain't seen my brother ever since

[Chorus: Raquel]
When the rose dies
Another gun will go
When the rose dies
When the rose dies
Another gun will grow

[Verse 2: Don Chino]
Sigo, sigo en lo mismo traficando
En la mía y seguimos controlando
Tiros, tiros en la calle siguen dando
Miro pa’tra’ y la poli me está parando
Dime lo que vamo´a hacer
Yo te hago desaparecer
Y todo el mundo matándose
Sigo siendo el mismo
Nunca cambié

[Bridge: Wyclef Jean]
RICO, RICO, now they're running from the narcos
Snitches got the court looking like a side-show
And the jury give the sentence with their eyes closed
When a rose dies another gun will grow

[Chorus: Raquel]
When the rose dies
Another gun will go
When the rose dies
When the rose dies
Another gun will grow

[Verse 3: Wyclef Jean]
We went from barely getting cash from the sidewalk
To now we stand tall like Jack and the Beanstalk
You know what my people would do to get a passport
Think Scarface, kill a diplomat boy
Now I'm thinking that the ice is a diamond mine
Thats a Haitian seeing snow for the first time
[?] I'm in a New York state of mind
While Papa Doc had niggas shittin' in the gun line

[Chorus: Raquel & Wyclef Jean]
When the rose dies
Another gun will go
When the rose dies
When the rose dies
Another gun will grow
When a rose dies another gun will grow
