Lyrics:Like the dead end kids we used to play in the streets
Never worryin about grief football
spelled relief
Ronnie ? was the coach for us
see he taught us to play almost every
single day OK
Now on Evergreen was Larry and Mike and Lon
My cousin Boo lived there
too just to name a few
with Sha rone he's bad to the bone Boo's little sidekick

And a badass mouth he used to feist it on Harmon Street
with Zach Leo and Ed
Jody and Boop by June, Rocky and then comes
Tommy and Cedric, Lamont and Greg, unique in our
own right
At times we'd fight, but that's a-ight
Still, not realizin we had love, it
when we played, no phony charades against
one another, now while I write this
It's like some are still alive and a couple are gone

* Chorus * (4X)

We're born to live, a life to die
Life's so damn short and I wonder why

As kids, you're overlookin death
It didn't seem important or serious, it just seems
It was about, wakin to a bowl of cereal
Cartoons on Saturday's, karate
flicks, and like
ridin your skateboard, or bicycle
And went as deep as Killa Joe on
the corner drinkin Ripple
Plus, Puerto Rican kids on the block were cool
We got
along, we all knew right from wrong
By far, we got a dose that life was hard
Spanish we were close with, was killed by a car
Shocking, Alberto was hit, on the block and

death was spontaneous, his moms was clockin him 'cross the street
He just received an
for Little League baseball like an hour before, plus
He didn't even get to see
the summer set in
Dyin all young at the age of seven
It opened up my eyes small that
the flesh was weak
As a kid, thinkin shit like that was mad deep, peep it

Chorus *

Now when somebody is gone, that's when you realize how close you was

how close you are.. like a star
Real deep it takes time to heal
And still
from time to time you wish you could find the way to forgive
and let him know you forgave

But they can't feel six feet deep inside the grave
What's left, but attend his wake,
believin if it was you
he'd do it for old time's sake, damn
I'm disturbed, by the
news when I was told I was sittin
Knowin damn well Boo ain't bullshittin
My life
flashed like big bills of cash
and good times we had, now it's all so sad
One of my
childhood pals hit the road
When you take, to the streets, then you die, by the code

But in this case, who knows what went down?
Bottom line is wishin that he still was around

Now he found a spot in my heart, or should I say lobotomy
Mike, know you're trapped
inside of me
And every other brother in Bushwick
Who rushed to your side thick, all
down with the click
Yeah, God Bless he laid to rest
Call him Mike Boogie, that's
what describes the nigga best

* Chorus *

We're born to live (4X)
