    Lyrics

    Starry night, an unknown creation
    Written by, and from the archives of Tupac Shakur
    Dedicated to the memory of Vincent Van Gogh

    A creative heart obsessed with satisfying
    This dorment and uncaring society
    You have given them the stars at night
    And you have given them bountiful bouquets of sunflowers
    But for you there's only contempt
    Though you pour yourself into that frame and present it so proudly
    This world could not accept your masterpieces, from the heart
    So on that starry night, you gave to us and you took away from us
    The one thing we never acknowledged, your life

    Yeah, game laid down by Q, why'knawmsayin?
    Vocals by Rasheeda, fly beat by QDIII
    And flows by the M-A-see why'all, Mr. M-A-see Mall

    Starry night, your life
    You gave to us, and took away from us
    Starry night, your life
    You gave to us, and took away from us

    Uh, uh, watch me live my art; writing words from my soul in blood
    I speak the truth on every thang I love
    I'll probably sacrifice my life, to send my message through mics
    It's like a war drum calling soldiers at night
    It's bigger than music I spit it straight from the heart
    So it's cold n dark and deep like a universe, but nah don't start
    It's for ya entertainment but it's my life why all
    And I can't rewind, fast forward, or press pause
    But when you give your all, it's like the fans demand more
    And after the tour I sit alone like before
    When ya name is hot it's all love, the world is yours
    But when you fall off, you get ignored

    You on the cover of da magazine, flossing on the TV screen
    Toastin' wit yo' champagne, playin' life like a game
    Loaded in the limousine, love to hear the fans scream
    Swimmin' wit the sharks now, ain't no love money king
    People got they hands out but ain't nobody lendin' hands
    Can you really blame dem for tryin' to get what they can?
    Late night, bright lights, lust n lies
    And anythang goes under the Hollywood sign
    Well you might lose ya soul and who knows what you find
    But go ahead main we all want to shine
    But go ahead main we all want to shine

    There you have it
    Why'know, when I was younger I prayed, to get in this game
    Why'know to hold dis microphone in my hand
    I asked the man upstairs, to let me rock a crowd one day
    Why'know let people out there feel the way I feel through my music
    Like my homeboy Tupac did fo' sho'
    And he gave that to me
    But he didn't he didn't he didn't let me know
    About all the shady shit that's in, in between
    You and yo' dream, why'know?
    See it's more than the music, I spit it from the heart
    So sometime it's cold n it's dark, but it's raw
    And that's how I'ma bring it to you every time, why'know?
