My Life
Erykah Badu Lyrics


I was standing down down, downtown
Staring at the puddles on the ground
Tryin' to figure out a way up out of this town
And I know yeah, I'm not the only one
So many people out there chase the sun

If you're looking for a free ride, you better run child
'Cause you sure won't get too far, oh oh
You'd better dance a dance to make the rain come down
If you want to be a star, oh my my life

My Life (brother you know)
Sure ain't been too easy
My life (brother you know)
The life I wanna live
My life (mama you know)
You're gonna go through changes
My life
No turnin' back, I'm tellin' you no

Every now and then I
Wanna to throw my hands up in the sky
'Cause one day I know I'll be flyin' high
And I know yeah I got to get down, on my knees and pray
'Cause in my heart I know I'll see that day

When my freedom comes along
I'm gonna run child
'Cause I know that I'll go far oh, oh
Can't let nobody kill my soul and bring me down
And they know who they are, oh my my life

My Life (sister you know)
Sure ain't been too easy
My life (brother you know)
The life I wanna live
My life (mama you know)
You're gonna go through changes
My life, no turnin' back, I'm tellin' you no (no turnin' back yeah)

My Life (sister you know)
Sure ain't been too easy
My life (brother you know)
The life I wanna live
My life (mama you know)
Gonna go through changes (yeah, yeah)
My life (yeah)
No turnin' back, I'm tellin' you no (no turnin' back yeah oh)
(Hey) no turning back, yeah oh (hey)

No turning back yeah
(Hey) no turning back
(Hey hey hey), no turning back (oh oh ooh)
(Oh ooh oh) no turning back
No turning back (oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oooh)
No turning back (hey hey ay yeah)
No turning back (yeah yeah yeah oh)
No turning back yeah oh
No turning back yeah oh
No turning back yeah oh
No turning back yeah

This is what ALL people (no matter the race or intelligence) listen too when they want something to fill the soul and soothe the beast in all of us!

It blows my mind daily that this isn't a single or cult hit or something that should be played at house parties and the place goes crazy....

Wanna test those around you...  Blare this song at a gathering and anyone that snaps their fingers or head nods or even better.. sings the lyrics! Wife em, Husband em... Shit, at least shake their hand and say thank you for knowing GREAT music and soul

Matthew In a country like Costa Rica, man, I struggle with negativity daily but it's hard for me imagine someone here listen or even knowing artistes like this girl or PJ Harvey let's say. Kinda feel alone in this place but my dream is go change that minset of mine and bring unique music to my country and world...
