DEANTÉ
"WE DON'T LIVE TOO LONG"




Another brotha was passin’ me by
Then he looked so deep into my eyes
And that’s when I asked him what his problem was
And without a doubt he went for his gun

I started to run without a fight
’Cause I knew I was too young to die
Without any doubt, like an athletic, I ran straight home

‘Cause we don’t live too long
Before you know it another life is gone
Just open up your eyes and see
Why we should live

What do we live for, if we hurt
And if so many dear ones have left this world?
We’ve got to beware
’Cause life ain’t no game
So let us just make that change
You know we don’t live too long

‘Cause we don’t live too long
Before you know it another life is gone
Just open up your eyes and see
Why we should live

At first I was blind but now I can see
The use of this world has got a hold on me
If you’re discouraged, then here’s what I say
Don’t take life for granted and pray

‘Cause we don’t live too long
Before you know it another life is gone
Just open up your eyes and see
Before you know another life is gone

‘Cause we don’t live too long
(Open up your eyes and see, why you don’t wanna listen to me?)
Before you know another life is gone
(And no one has got in your way, why you wanna go on this place?)
Just open up your eyes and see
Why we should live
