2. Intro pt II (Remember the Name)
Instrumental: Fort Minor – Remember the Name

im known as gifted thought, call me g dot for short
but ya gotta see how i work, as another MC of course
i dont believe im the first nor am i even the worst
i just like thinking in rhyme and then speaking in verse
listen, im just another average having kid from the burbs
thats sorta sick with these words, yes, these are different terms
ya thinking this is absurd, but wait just listen up first
some say this isnt my class but im still willing to learn
whys a chubby funny asian dude messing with rap?
the only thing ill say to you is that im blessed with a knack
thats a knack for the rhymes along with the passion to match
its an immaculate time to put this fat cat on the map
its a radical tact, some people panic when i rhyme
those who judge me by my skin are more slanted than my eyes
understand that im a guy not just a stereotype
cause i write from both sides, you can call it a stereo type
i don’t care for the style of all them dumb typical raps
yo this is life is too short, kinda like my physical stats
but then there’s a bit of a catch, when i got something to say
cause like tim mcgraw, im a man thats loving the Faith
imma hafta tell ya to wait, stick around and then listen
cause like the name of the tape i got the sound in transition
and then just maybe ya might at the very end of the day
be able to hear out the mike and then “remember the name”

3. Paradise ft Albee & RK
Instrumental: unknown
-Contains samples from Michael Jackson – Lady In My Life
Additional Lyrics: RK, Albee

Verse 1: GT
yo, no one else has touched me like the way that you do
cause whenever life gets ugly, yea you saved me with truths
others may think its funny, but ya gave me ya proof
and others may call me dummy, but im still staying with you
yo its ok if I lose some of the old ways of my self
cause seconds spent with you’s better than days anywhere else
living life for you is the biggest blessing I can find
cause now ever time of trouble’s another lesson in disguise
you are the best thing in my life, and all else im prepared to lose
cause no girl, car, house, could ever compare to you
so ill go where you do, cause theres no better place to be
and though I dunno where, I trust where youre taking me
ya love is saving me, its always something i hold unto
and ill aways hope and pray that ya hold me close to you
though there may be times when I turn from ya holy truths
as atmosphere said, ‘im always coming back home to you…”

Verse 2: RK
fallin into a mess, yo, im blinded in the dark
behind is where i walk, in this line to get the spark.
..of light, the truth is what i seek but all i do is back pedal
i cant settle for the last pebble i wanna grab several
handfuls of the knowledge that ive come here to get
yo clear the set, ill take yall out and ill never fear regret
selfishness becomes the pilot, yo, will i come to find it, no
try to show realness but im jus actin, yo my lifes a joke
during my droughts you poured down rain, ill never doubt your holy name
my soul remains in sin, so you spread your arms out and showed me pain
and gained my love, all i got is one love
ill never forget the love of God up above
the knowledge that i seek is held by the man above
and its through him that i gain wisdom, not by the hands of us
..human beings.. you found me lost me alone and said ‘ come follow me,’
you showed me paradise and its where i want to be

Verse 3: GT & Albee
ya loves like an oasis in this desert of life
ill never forget what its like, ya saved me from death with ya life
and now ya heavenly light can chase all the darkness away
you’ve been doin that since my kindergartner days
yo the farther I stray, the more unsatisfied I am
and that is why I can leave my life in ya rightful hands
I pray as ya craftn up ya plans, id be able to catch em if I can
cause then I know life’ll be like michael Jackson mighta sang
”there’ll be no darkness tonite
your love will shine light in my life”
Only you can make each day much fresher than the last
only you can make my life so much better than the past
and with each letter in this rap I hope to glorify you
cause ya know what’s good for me, a whole lot more than I do

Chorus x2: Albee
you bring joy into my life
cause life with you is paradise

Outro:
ya love has always been such a beautiful thing
ya loves the only thing that could move me to sing

4. Secretly
Instrumental: Atmosphere – Always Coming Back Home to You

lemme introduce Sue, a girl still young in her teens
people always saw her different, even some what extreme
cause there’s a number of things that sorta set her apart
sue kept her nose in books, seemed so clever and smart
she dressed messy and dark, liked heavy metal and art
so kids judged only her by her rep instead of her heart
yo she’s feeling like a square among a circle of friends
cause she couldnt tell someone about the hurting within
from the personal things, like all them problems at home
its sad to say, all the pain, keeps rotting her soul
feeling hollow and cold, she lost all of her hope
no one to call on the phone, to try to talk to who knows
what its like to cry at night and have to swallow the whole
…lump of dispair thats still caught in her throat
and half the kids would only glare at the purple colored hair
the other half would only think it wasnt worth to love and care
some gave hurtful little stares that would chip away her pride
so she hid away the pain, and tried to take it all in stride
she lived day to day in life feeling kinda like a ghost
opened up her diary, always crying as she wrote
her tears would dot her i’s, she was trying to control
her emotions and her thoughts from slowly dying in her soul
shut her eyes and kept em closed, sleeping was her escape
she dreaded every morning’s lonely feeling when she wakes

but wait… lemme take a moment, to tell another story
about a boy, almost a man, guess we’ll call him cory
cory was the type of guy who had everything in life
followed rules, stayed in school, everything he did was right
he was captain of the team not to mention class president
cory’s going places and that was way past evident
he had the grades, had the girl, some say he’s overzealous
the kinda kid parents saw and right away ya know were jealous
but little did they know that every smile he gave was forced
lived a predetermined track, as time would take its course
despite the popularity, and the respect of all his peers
his paradise in life wasnt just as it appeared
cory’s covered by the fear that he just wasnt good enough
and that he’s all alone, so he fronts like hes lookn tough
but underneath that mask of his, you can see that he actually is
saddened at the core cause no ones is really asking him
how has he exactly been, they all assume he’s perfect
they didnt know down inside hes really feeling worthless
cause no accolade or trophy could listen to his problems
so its on this slippery slope he’s continually falling
he’d go to bed every night, just staring at his ceiling
…trying to ignore everything that he’s feeling
shut his eyes and kept em closed, sleeping was the escape
he dreaded every morning’s lonely feelings when he wakes

but theres a lil some’n more thats new to the story
see… our miss lady sue also knew mister cory
but they never talked, never speakn of their hurts
even though they saw each other every weekend at their church
instead they went along just pretending they were fine
but when all is said and done, in the end they were lying
but still there’s a question that needs to be said
how come the church didnt reach out to them?

if sue is our sister and cory is our brother
how come the church didnt reach out to them?
this is for the people that secretly suffer
how come the church didnt reach out to them?

if sue is our sister and cory is our brother
how come the church didnt reach out to them?
this is for the people that secretly suffer
how come the church didnt reach out to them?

“how come we the church didnt reach out to them?”

6. Take Me Away ft Shinobi
Instrumental: Dynamic Duo -고백
Additional Lyrics: Shinobi

Verse 1: GT
bring it back, bring it back, as tablo would say
“i remember back in the… day”
cause back in the day, i never cared if i was old
i lived the simple life without paris or nicole
things were careless at home, too busy having fun
chasing ice cream trucks, i lived for candy runs
push pops, pop rocks, life was sweet and it was truer
only green i cared about was Hi-C ecto cooler
you could find me in the sewer watching splinter and his crew
ate a box of lunchables after i finished up in school
in the middle of the summa catch me swimming at the pool
man i miss them betta days when living wasnt cruel
cause only guns i ever saw were for duck hunt nintendo
only towers that would fall, constructed by legos
the only war had cobra commanda and joe
if ya feeling what im saying, throw ya hands up and go…

Verse 2: GT
lets travel back in time like doc brown & marty
mention chuck e cheese and i was down for the party
throw on a starter jacket when the temperature dropped
where to eat depended on whether or not
i could get a cool toy if i ordered a meal
the more i think about it, the older i feel
no more quarters to kill on them video games
now its dolla dolla bill to continue to play
and in the second grade i came out my shell
cause i thought id marry kelly from saved by the bell
my favorite present ever that was given to me
were my LA Lights that would lit up the streets
life was good, never had no problems with the girls
matter fact, lookn back the only problem were the girls
theres something bout those days that ill always miss
cause like my trapper keeper life always clicked

Verse 3: Shinobi
다시 원하네 나 그 시절 back in the day
사탕하나에 목매던 그시절그때
아무것도 몰랐던 그때 지금생각하니 너무나 행복했었기에
친구와 공터를 왔다갔다
나도 모르게 시간은 째깍째깍
그렇게 흘러버린 그리고 추억으로 남긴 달고나
이제야 느껴 시간이 너무 빨러
세상에 쫓겨 그렇게 우린 달려
언제까지 달릴 순 없잖아
잠시 쉬는 것도 좋잖아 저기 하늘을 봐
아픔은 뒤로 잊고
걱정은 뒤로 하고
Time to let it go here we go
추억은 향수에 남기고 let me go

Chorus: GT & Shinobi
i wanna stop thinking shoulda woulda coulda
추억의 향기를 자아내는 그곳으로
찔찔 코흘리개 어린시절 old days
take me back, take me back, just take me away

7. Give and Take
Instrumental: GT, DCho
-Contains sample from Park Jin Young -난 여자가 있는데

girl ive seen it before, when ya fall for the bad ones
ya say you can read him like he’s talking in captions
cause no one else really gets him quite like you do
he just misunderstood but a truly likeable dude
so ya think that, ya can maybe make him improve
and then shape up for you till one day he’s a new…
man… girl i hate to have to break ya the news
when you find that the only one changing was you
ya can say it aint true, but its still hard to beleive
is this honestly where ya really wanted to be?
cause ya thought with you he’s a good honest guy
ya saw the promise inside of those calm and strong eyes
but after some time ya find that its all just a lie
and now ya lost and all caught up in compromise
now askin ya self, why did he do such a thing?
its not the first time bad boy’s ruined a dream
so now ya grown cause of this dirty burning mistake
i just wish that you didnt have to learn in this way
cause if loves about give and take then listen i ask ya…
why’d you do the former but he did the latter?

8. We Belong Together
Instrumental: Mariah Carey – We Belong Together

verse 1:
even when i was a little kid, i knew inside that you were always there
but it didn’t really matter, ya coulda been invisible for all i cared
but i guess in a way you were, with barely any exchange of words
any interest would have to wait to grow, inside this average 8 year old
but suddenly, one day for sure, i guess i was a bit overdue
no its true, became so confused, suddenly i began to notice you
… guess i didn’t know you, guess i didnt know me, didnt know all along
ya had me hooked like a chorus on a song repeating on and on…
and on it went… i dunno how but now you could make me sing
i was making dreams and saying things, like maybe i was made for this
everyday i wrote to you intending to prove this life is for me
and so began my love affair with m to the u, s i to the c

verse 2:
i’ll be the first to admit that music got me through some troubled times
but i’ve come to find, and i aint one to lie, that there were all these other signs
signs that were telling me that love for the music could only do so much
and true enough, i knew this but, i couldn’t let go of this music bug
so where could i turn? where do i start? what’s here for me that’s left in this art?
why do i still wanna express from the heart? ….but then i knew, i only think of You
and only You…. heh, i couldn’t believe how i’ve been a fool
how could i go all these years forgetting, neglecting this simple truth
almost seems miniscule, this little individual single rule…
that although i can’t live for the music, my music will always live for You
i think shaun groves had it right because i can actually truly say
that i wanna love, stay and be close to You after the music fades

Chorus 1:
i’m thinking … you and me, and that’s all i need
cause … from the start… it seemed meant to be
and… you’re here for me, i feel made for you
that’s why… we belong together….

Chorus 2:
i know that God, you and me, that’s all i need
cause … from the start… its truly meant to be
and Lord you’re here for me, i was made for you
that’s why… we belong together….

10. Through You ft Jackie
Instrumental: Ready Rock Productions – New Devine
Additional Arrangement: Jackie, E. Choi
Additional Lyrics: Jackie

Verse 1: GT
there are times I wonder why I feel so caught in a loop
cause it seems harder to do the things that are honoring you
I feel farther from you when ever I start to improve
even though you pour out blessings like a carton of juice
maybe its all an excuse, but then I can’t refuse the fact
that I’m moonwalking, every step only moves me back
im tryna run this race but I’m still slowly losing track
wanna child like faith, but the kids growing up too fast
yo wasnt it just the other night you brought conviction to my soul
granted freedom on the spot along with healing up the whole
but now the feeling that I got seems to be leaking out some holes
and I scream for it to stop but I can’t deal with this alone
I’m feeling so exposed & in need all of your blessings
cause times like a fat man, it keeps on eating up the seconds
yo I’m speaking my confession, Lord I’m trying, does it matter?
I aint that into fashion but I’m tired of this pattern

Verse 2: GT
see, i dont really fully understand how to truly be a man
im just doing what i can but i can’t fully take a stand
but God by knowing you, you can use me in ya plans
Lord im feeling overdue, please renew me once again
as confused a man I am, I still wanna keep the faith
but its so hard to follow through with all the promises i make
and all the promises i break only remind me of my past
cant deny the bags i have, and all the lies that ive amassed
God please stay within my heart, i really need you hear with me
i need the peace of jesus not some shiny jesus piece
so please believe i’m tryna follow you with everything i got
even though i know that you are clearly everything im not
tryna depend on you my God, yo your love is so reliable
ya presence in the presents a gift thats undeniable
its kinda crazy the way ya grace is calling me to you
and i guess my lifes your cue to show it always leads to you

Bridge: Jackie & GT
you speak into my life and then cleanse me of my past so i…
get back up again
but i start to wander off, and my focus never lasts so im
on my knees again
ya fill me with your love and then im ready to go so i
get back up again
but maybe i should know that i cant do it all alone so ill stay
on my knees again

Chorus: Jackie
gotta admit its been a rollercoaster tryna live for you
through the ups and downs ive seen all the things that you can do
and i know that i (that i) can do all things through you (through you)
through he who gives me strength i wont give up yea~

11. A Message from Jackie
Instrumental & Lyrics: Jackie

Give me your money, I know it aint funny

So just don’t say you got something to do
Cause baby I will call you my boo
If you give me your money
Baby I will love you it’s true

12. Hold On (Jinny Kim Remix)
Instrumental: GT
-Contains samples from Jinny Kim – Hold On

Verse 1:
sometimes, you know I gotta swallow my pride
its too hard to deny that i’m feeling hollow inside
but my head hangs low cause gotta lot on my mind
and i’m lost can’t tell… the wrong from the right
and im sorry but i gotta ask you pardon the lie
if i say nah im not crying, there’s some’n caught in my eye
and im so aware of what i call a flaw of design
they say the hearts to the left, i know mines not in the right
tryna look at the dark, and maybe call it a night
and though today wasnt great, yo tomorrow just might
be… inspite all of these types of problems in life
cause these signs, when read, say ya gotta stop at the Light

Verse 2:
can’t even try to be mister nice guy
people think im shadow boxing, th rowing fists at the sky
and im given advice, like well “ya live and try”
or breathe in, breathe out, but i only give up a sigh
and i didnt subscribe, but time’s always the issue
im scared ill feel empty, to put all of me in You
im sorry but it’s true, i’m lacking in faith
or maybe im just too used being trapped in this place
cause man these mistakes, feel like a part of my soul
im afraid some of the parts, are larger than whole
i dunno whether this storm is really weaker than You
but i hope to weather the storm and believe in the Truth

Chorus:
“Hold On… ya keep on sayin to me, and i wanna believe (…cause You know I’m tryna)
Hold On… i’m tryna hold on to You, even though i’m confused (… cause i know i gotta)

13. Listen, Look
Instrumental: Mario Vázquez – Gallery

Verse 1:
listen, i got so much on my mind that i gotta let out
i see you, and my words like a cough caught in my mouth
…its not that im proud, in fact im a little too weak
im too little to speak, my heart feels brittle and cheap
cause, girl… i dont wanna lie, ya did a number on me
i was one who believed that we had some’n unique
but then ya suddenly leave cause this was what you need
and even though i agreed, i was in dumb disbelief
cause you said this is what God called you to do
so i feel i aint godly for not wanting it too
you can call me a fool, cause yo i started to dream
about growin old together, ya know, part of a team
dont wanna believe His plans are better for you
guess i couldnt cut it, but i did the best i could do
i know you didnt start with me just to mean it to end
but why do i feel like i was just a means to an end?

Verse 2:
look, i hope you forgive me if it seems like im cold
but this is how i get when my deepest dreamings implode
K, so you needed to go, and never meant us no harm
but I still question God why we end up apart
im just left with a scar and a bitter perception
yo i wish that i was man enough to give you my blessin
but my feelins are selfish, and i confess that im hurt
for you i was just another life lesson to learn
just a notch on the belt, another stop on the road
another thing in this life you had to drop and let go
wish i knew what to say, guess i ran outta words
hate to lose you this way, felt this plan is absurd
thought that this man deserved… to be at ya side
but i learned i was wrong, fell to my knees and i cried
my minds outta control but then i stopped on a thought
if i had to lose you at all, least i lost you to God

Chorus:
step after step, and through the stormy weather
thought that id found, someone to walk together
day after day, someone to run the race with
only to discover we’re going to different places

14. Like Father, Like Son ft DCho
Instrumental: Lowfile – Fly Away
Additional Lyrics: DCho, C. Yu

Verse 1: DCho
Yo, my daddy’s from a family of wealth
so he keeps to himself , and never needed my help
so I would reach for the shelf, and I would read to myself
and he would reach for his belt
daddy would whip my hands if I quit his plans
or I missed demands he’s a business man,
doesn’t have the time or will to live as a fan of his son,
I didn’t have to watch the game because he must of won
from that day on,
I drew pictures of mama with just half crayons
About a decade later I was just not in the mood
Sitting, watching daddy in that little hospital room
Looked at the IV, and just looking at me
Said he’d love me and would love to see what I would be
That meant the world to me but it occurred to me
What about eternity?

Verse 2: GT
eyo dad, i was hoping we could talk for a minute?
cause it sorta seems we havent talked for a minute
i mean we speakn to each other, but on a shallow level
i could leave this up to mother, but its something i should settle
yo, first and foremost, i gotta say thank you
for caring for the fam, i know we’re probably a handful
dunno how you deal with all the problems that you handle
in many ways i learned from you on how to be a man too
but somewhere, between now and 84
I learned Jesus was the truth and that I was made for more
i know this topic makes you bored and i should maybe save my words
but Dad I love you, and that’s why i keep saying more
its not all about judging sinner or saint
it’s about the freedom and love that comes from living in faith
and as long as you’re here, breathing in life
I pray one day we can share the love of Jesus Christ

Chorus 1: DCho
(Korean)
Everytime I think about it brings a tear to my eye
(Korean)
Will you meet the Lord above before you reach the sky?

Chorus 2: GT
“ba, ngor hai teen tong wui ng wui geen doe lei?”
Everytime I think about it brings a tear to my eye
“ba, ngor gei see doe gum ngoi lei”
Will you meet the Lord above before you reach the sky?

15. In Transition Freestyle (It Was Written)
Instrumental: 배치기 – 현관을 열면

yo im at an age where my dad’ll say, you gotta wake up and grab the day
but i stand in place, dont have the face, to admit that im hanks in cast away
actually, if your asking me, a bit more like the kwons in Lost
im so lost, i dropped the ball, i dunno where to start at all
so… i gotta take a minute, and then look at my position
see all the others things in it, how crooked is my vision
if i choose my intuition, i gotta question all my motives
if i choose to only listen, i gotta question if they know me
im about to finish college and make a successfull living
shoulda finished up in four years but i stayed for an extra inning
but the world keeps on revolving and im demanding that it stops
cause im prepping for a fistfight with the hands up on the clock
but hour fight is so minute that theres no point in another second
im only trying to find the truth, is this poison just a blessing?
when im tired of all this thinking i get my keys and start the hyundai
the drive in me is slipping, and im working weak like its a monday
as im cruising down the road and the lights reflect up of the mirror
im sippn on my coke blak to hold back questions and my fears
man im wishin i could go back and then just remain a child
misery loves company so why dont you come and stay a while
took left on memory lane, well… heh i know it wasnt right
things may never be the same, i keep going through the night
quickly coming to a fork, gotta choose just one direction
God, i dont want just your blessing I want You as my selection

Scratching: GT
-Contains samples from Perry, Drunken Tiger, DJ Rectangle
Additional Lyrics: Shinobi

Verse 1: Shinobi
(korean)

Verse 2: GT
lemme tell you a story and the truth behind my genesis
it was just a few years after i left behind my genesis
it all began, i started tryna rhyme my sentences
but the reasons why i did wasnt quite so evident
see i was using rap to make an impression on a lady
but ironically rap’s the one still left with me today
i would never be the same, i found a diamond of a treasure
cause the women come and go, … but yo rhyming is forever
and all the times we had together is now happily ever after
all because just a few influential yellow rappers
started with sierize as a teen to be specific
and i hailed from the Atlantic but was feeling the PACIFICS
was feening for a listen for whatever likwit had for me
and then the Mountain Brothers taught me all bout the galaxies
Shine & Tiger J worked me out with all their movement
yo its cause of them i aint afraid to do the music

Chorus:

19. Been Too Long…
Instrumental: Apex Productions – I’m Still Hood

Verse 1:
so here I am, already 21
they call me grown up, but i’m feelin plenty dumb
im still thinking like im young and im making ol mistakes
hate admitting what i’ve done, am i growing up too late?
yo … this isn’t right. you shouldn’t be a stranger
yes its really sad our relationship is now estranged, but…
truthfully the only ones to blame are me, myself, and i
only seem to talk to you when i need your help at times
and worst of all, can’t claim that i didnt have the chance
i saw you everyday, but didn’t give you half a glance
and even as i write to you, i’m seekin for a scapegoat
some reason or excuse to relieve me of all the shameful…
feelings and emotions slowly growing deep within my soul
for going all this time like i was living in control
….i’m sorry. and now through it all i actually see
always thought i was passing time when its really passing me.

Verse 2:
for once, i’m honestly acknowledging..
all of the possible reasons for apologies
cause if honesty.. is really the best policy
then obviously, you should probably be calling me
a poster boy for the modeling of all hypocrisy
but i’m swallowing my pride to say that i’m really sorry, please…
… i just wanna hear your voice
i’m cleaning out my ears and mind to be able to clear the noise.
what i really want to do is be able to connect with you again
i thought that i’d be fine but i’m just desperate in the end
cause really… if you wanna know the truth
at the end of every day, i really miss being close to you
at the end of the year, i watched NY drop the ball…
and then thought about my mistakes n y i dropped the ball.
anyways i really hope to hear from you, and talk to you again.
God, i miss you. in your name i pray… amen.

Chorus:
i know it’s been too long since i last seen ya face
but i wanna right these wrongs if its the last thing i say
i’m know its all my fault for why things happened this way
i need a reconcilation.

20. Dénouement ft Jackie
Instrumental: unknown
Additional Lyrics: Jackie

Verse: GT
yo girl, i dunno what to do, i dont even have a clue
cause i couldnt take the higher road, instead im in this rut
im tryna tell the truth, feels like either way i lose
but after all of this, yo forgiving you is tough
its almost been a year since ya… walked away
and things are pretty weird and uh.. not the same
cause its kinda like a drug, all these memories of us
im gettin high, every night, but it never seems enough
eventually im crashing down, i guess i must have overdosed
and then i see ya not around, again im suddenly alone
last year, you were there for me when i snapped my fibula
but later when you turned away it felt like you were giving up
now ya with another guy and i cant look you in the face
cause i never figured out what to do with all the pain
see for my broken leg i can could pop a percocet
but for my broken heart i havent stopped the hurting yet

Chorus: Jackie
Can I just say, I’m missing you
When you went away, all I can think about is you
And I pray to God that you’re thinking of me too
On the other hand you hurt me love, Only heaven knows what I should do

21. What Would I Do? ft Kato
Instrumental: Mars Ill – Dog Ear Page
Additional Mixing: Kato
Additional Arrangement: Kato
Additional Lyrics: Kato

Verse 1: GT
bout a decade abo, back before puberty
my family was tryna figure out exactly what to do with me
they knew id be, growing up fast, so they’d say to me
son why dont you try some things from columbs a,b, and c
always practicing a sport or some type of instrument
i did my hw late at night, just so i could finish it
been given this, its what my parents saw and moved for me
they traded in their roots for the gift of opportunity
and truthfully, momma wanted a piano playing doctor
and my pops wanted a… soccer playing playing doctor
so what am i? just your average MC doin IT
yea i like the tech but the mic is like my wifey

Verse 2: Kato
Losin my marbles at the tender age of 72
Stemming back all the way from the days of my youth
It all started when I dropped out of school
To pursue a lifestyle in the movies, while learning kung-fu
First, I got a job so I could pay for the move
So I took up the only offer at the local petting zoo
It was hard work, blood sweat and tears
Animals pulling, biting, screaming into my ears
So I quit after years of abuse
I went down hill, cause of the bummer induced
It was no use now, didn’t know what to do
So in the end I was shining shoes (man forget this!)

Chorus: GT, Kato
what would i do, if i never stepped up to the mic
would i be that one kid that nobody would like? (i dunno, i dunno)
bitterness about the way things are going in life
what would i do? what would i do, would i do?

22. Ides of April ft Jackie
Instrumental: Jackie
Additional Arrangement: Jackie

Verse: GT
in the blink of an eye, in a single passing moment
everything can change, become rearranged, itll never be the same
it’s like the sands in the hour glass are hanging frozen
floating, in mid air, like dreams and hopes and if only, if only…
but hindsight does nothing…
because when when fate decided to turn the tables
on a woman in richmond in the middle of april..
a life… stopped…
i have no idea what its like to lose a parent
but i imagine its a lot like losing a part of yourself
because when i sat there in the pew of that church
i looked at my friend, and i knew.. i just knew that she hurt.
her face, expressionless, except her eyes….
if you looked into her eyes, she didnt cry..
but you could see it, a big cocktail of pain
made of 1 part sadness and 1 part anger that screamed WHAT THE HELL?!
her heart was broken, and everything seemed to leak out of the cracks
questioning, wondering…
what kind of man could do this. NO what kind of coward was that.
cuz all it took, was a finger to motion come hither
while pressed against a trigger… i wonder if she even knew what hit her
ya see everything in that store had a price tag…
but this man wasnt interested in soda pop or candy
nor magazines or cigarettes but tragically he instead..
stood there. demanding… hand me, that paper.
just another dolla bill.
cuz everyone knows it takes bills to pay bills.
but did he really have to kill… to make a killng?
that day, he took something money couldnt buy
….he got the cash… but i still wonder why’d he have to take a life?
imagine the very person who helped you choose which college to apply to
wouldnt be there, months later to help you decide which college is right for you
imagine talking to your mom about the day of your prom…
all excited, cuz the dates highlighted and your dates invited
but she didnt live to see your face on the night of it….
but of course, time goes on.
and like the life of this woman, it eventually passed away.
and eventually, everyone had to slowly try to move past the pain.
and my friend? she and her brother, along with their dad
had to pull it together, gather any bit of strength that they had
to stand up, even though the heart of the family was taken, GONE
they did what they had to do, live…and continue on…
and i know, this woman is nothing but proud.
to see how far her family has come,
looking at where they’ve been and where they’re at now
especially the daughter. the girls got so much spirit in her
and if you look into her eyes now, she still doesnt cry
no, instead she’s driven to prove….
because the girl’s becoming a woman… and now she’s living for two.

Reprise: Jackie
I will go on, with you always in my heart
Although you’re gone, you’re still always in my heart
I will go on, with you always in my heart
