(Alright, well basically..uhh, this is for a friend of mine that passed. I wrote this for him. This is 2-3 years ago, I just wrote this though. The people that I'm tagging, I'm just tagging you because It feels right, y'know? Oh, and the above youtube link is the beat I wrote to. Just play it while you read the lyrics, you know.)
I'm trying to think of something to start with..
Rhyimg lines in my head just doesn't spark it..
sitting here thinking of you and I break down,
Tyler, why were you the one chosen to go now?
I remember you're face, you're eyes but not your voice,
and I would remember the latter if I had the choice,
if only for one reason, and that reason would be,
I would probably end up pretending that your speaking to me..
You were like my friend when really no one else wanted to be.
Tyler, Your an angel now and I know your serving the G
But I'd do anything to have you back down here with me..
I'm tearing up as I write this and then type this..
Hoping finally somebody will like this..
I remember even as a christian, Tyler, you supported my raps.
You were the only one who told me to go for it and not look back.
You gave me hope when no one could, growing up with you only..
Saying I'm now growing up alone is true, I'm growing up too lonely..
I remember that day god took you from us,
Staring from my window, I see you in the truck..
Being hauled off in a stretcher, I ask my mom if it was you
I'm like 10 or 11, she says what i thought was true
I turn and cry and just dash off to my room..
My soul burns and dies and i lose all my fumes..
In that moment.. in that instant, I knew that you were gone..
I knew in that second, That something just felt horribly wrong..
You had one of those tubes shoved down your throat,
thats how i knew it was bad, doctors helping you cope..
you couldn't even breathe, how were you gonna survive,
Scary thoughts to be thinking, when I'm barely pass nine..
I remember one day..your house, your porch..
we were playing basketball outside on your court..
you were whooping my ass I was used to it i kinda sucked,
I was the fat kid, lets face it, I was that loveable fat fuck..
Anyway, you won like 93-24 and you looked me in the eye and gave me tips,
then you bet me like $50 bucks that you couldn't touch the rim,
you were like 5'11, but I was dumb so i took the bet,
and you won, that's a day that I'll never forget..
you were clever, but you gave me the money back..
I said "You won, here, it's fair and square, ass."
I walked away, pride hurt crying, you stopped me by the shoulder,
you picked me up, put me in the pocket then knocked me over,
you took me home and told my mom about the bet..
my mom get pissed yelled at you and it took me forever to get..
why you did what you did, but i finally get why..
sometimes it takes a really man to swallow his pride..
and admit when he's wrong, you scammed a nine year old outta cash
this songs for you, knowing your gone, ill be fine....love, jack.
