How Come
D12 Lyrics


So I changed huh?
You got a phone
Pick it up
Call me

How come, we don't even talk no more
And you don't even call no more
We don't barely keep in touch at all
And I don't even feel the same love when we hug no more
And I heard it through the grapevine
We even been beefin' now
After all the years we been down
Ain't no way no how
This bullshit can't be true
We family
Ain't a damn thing changed
Unless its you

We were so young
So full of life and vibrance
Side by side, wherever you was riding, I went
So close, almost on some Bonnie and Clyde shit
When Ronnie died you was right by my side
With a shoulder to cry on and tissue to wipe my eyes
And a bucket to catch ever tear I cried inside it
You even had the same type of childhood I did
Sometimes I just wanna know why is it that you succumb to yours
And mine I survived it. You ran the streets, I 9 to 5'ed it
We grew up, grew apart as time went by us
And I blew up to both yours and mines surprises
Now I feel a vibe I just can't describe it
Much as your pride tries to hide it
You're cold, your touch is just like ice
And your eyes is a look of resentment
I can sense it and I don't like it

How come, we don't even talk no more
And you don't even call no more
We don't barely keep in touch at all
And I don't even feel the same love when we hug no more
And I heard it through the grapevine
We even been beefin' now
After all the years we been down
Ain't no way no how
This bullshit can't be true
We family
Ain't a damn thing changed
Unless its you

It was my dream at first to be off spitting a verse
On my own album with a deal but shit got worse
'Fore I came out I would of killed a nigga first
'Fore I let him disrespect me, or check me over some worrisome
Bitch that I wasn't with I woulda hit it and quit
But you were planning to talk with her and tell her she was the shit
I told you don't get involved with her
You would smoke in the car with her
Coming outta the bar with her
Stumbling half drunk
Like y'all was husband and wife or something
But me catching her fucking other niggas must of hurt your pride or something
'Cause you woof off at the mouth to people like you want it with me
When all I tried to do was show that your bitch was shifty
And ever since the fans and all the shit that I produced
You acting like I ain't your mans, lying like she can't be loose
But I am really your friend, I'm just trying to tell you the truth
Don't hate the game or the player
The one that's changing is you

How come, we don't even talk no more
And you don't even call no more
We don't barely keep in touch at all
And I don't even feel the same love when we hug no more
And I heard it through the grapevine
We even been beefin' now
After all the years we been down
Ain't no way no how
This bullshit can't be true
We family
Ain't a damn thing changed
Unless its you

It's gettin' lonely at the top 'cause my homie had to stop
Now we acting like I gotta live only for the block
And homies in the hood only see me on the tube
So they gossip on the porch get to speakin' all rude
Fools I used to rap wit all expect magic
Like my finger get to snapping
And poof it just happen
But Proof is just acting out the part he was thrown
Shady made it so my babies ain't starving at home
See the devil in your glance
Since the ghetto we been friends, forever real intelligence
That's forever 'til the end
I peep the hatred in your eyes, and the Satan in your lies
Ain't wasting my time with these snakes in disguise
(How come) When you talk it's with bitter and spite?
(And how come) It's my fault for what you did with your life?
And every time I go to hear you play, you look away
We barely embrace, you can't even look me in my face

How come, we don't even talk no more
And you don't even call no more
We don't barely keep in touch at all
And I don't even feel the same love when we hug no more
And I heard it through the grapevine
We even been beefin' now
After all the years we been down
Ain't no way no how
This bullshit can't be true
We family
Ain't a damn thing changed
Unless its you

@Warriors Son 1966 There is no ill feelings here toward you, I just want to inform you. I was born and raised on the rez. I lived the life, as my elders saw fit. I never argued and when I asked questions I was quickly silenced and was told...."that's just the way it is" I left at the age of 17 (Army) which gave me a chance to see who I am. 18 years of mariage later, I believe I found the real me. I have a wonderful wife, a beautiful daughter and a handsome son. When my wife and I started all we had was a pool toy as a bed and now I have a 4 bed 2 and a half bath....I'm good. Thank you for responding. Full blooded Navajo here.

@papadelta316 Be authentic. Traditional values are important but do not lose who you are and your goals in the pleasing of others. You sound like you have the courage to find the real you and pursue truth. All the best.

@caue alves andrade I know the pain. My WHOLE family was VERY toxic that I had to completely cut them off, for my mental health. All I get when I go home now (which is very rare now) is "wow you really changed" I correct them and say, "No, I grew up" I am Native American and our beliefs of "family first" is really hurting our people, sometimes you have to leave the culture to truly understand it. IDK, it might just be me. lol...sorry for the novel
