    Lyrics

    Looking for these better dayz

    Better dayz
    Heeyyy
    Better dayz
    Got me thinking bout better dayz
    Better dayz, Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyy
    Better dayz
    Got me thinking bout better dayz

    [Verse 1]

    Time to question our lifestyle, look how we live
    Smoking weed like it ain't no thang, so even kids wanna try now
    Then lie down and get ran through
    Nobody watches them clocking, the evil men do
    Faced with the demons, addicted to hearing victims screaming
    Guess we was evil since birth, product of cursed semens
    Cause even our birthdays, are cursed days
    A born thug in the first place, the worst ways
    I'd love to see the block in peace
    With no more dealers and crooked cops, the only way to stop the beasts
    And only we can change, it's up to us to clean up the streets
    It ain't the same
    Too many murders, too many funerals and too many tears
    Just seen another brother buried plus I knew him for years
    Pass by his family but what could I say?
    Keep your head up and try to keep the faith
    And pray for better dayz

    [Chorus]

    Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyyy
    Better dayz
    Thinking bout better dayz
    Better dayz, Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyy
    Better dayz
    Got me thinking bout better dayz

    [Verse 2]

    Thinking back as an adolescent
    Who would have guessed, that in my future years I'd be stressing
    Some say the ghetto's sick and corrupted
    Plus my P.O. won't let me hang with the brothers I grew up with
    Trying to keep my head up and stay strong
    All my homies slanging yayo all day long
    But they wrong, so I'm solo (so low) and so broke
    Saving up for some Jordan's, cause they dope
    I got a girl and I love her but she broke too
    And so am I, I can't take her to the place she wanna go to
    So we argue and playfight, all day and night
    Making passionate love till the day light
    Plus we bout to get evicted, can't pay the rent
    Guess it's time to see who really is your friend
    You tell me you pregnant and I'm amazed
    So many blessings while we stressing
    Looking for them better dayz

    Better dayz

    [Chorus]

    Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyyy
    Better dayz
    (Oh, better dayz)
    Thinking bout better dayz
    (I'm looking for better)
    Better dayz, Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyy
    Better dayz
    (Oh, better dayz)
    Got me thinking bout better dayz

    [Verse 3]

    Now me and you was real cool, hell on them square fools
    Since back in high school we was true, me and you
    Only part of us separated we stay faded
    Affiliated with gang bangers and still made it
    Up in the gym, mess with me, gotta mess with him
    Still dressing like grown men, when roll-ing
    Out in the dark, smoking newports, gaming marks
    Gotta place in my heart, homie stay smart
    Locked you up in the pen and gave you 3 to 10
    I send you letters with naked flicks of old friends
    Hoping you well, I know it's hell
    Doing time in the cell you need mail, when you in jail
    And me I'm doing cool
    I've settled down had a family, working and night school
    Every once in awhile, I reminisce
    And wonder how we ever came to this
    I miss the better dayz

    Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyyy
    Better dayz
    Thinking bout better dayz
    Better dayz, Better dayz, Better dayz
    Heeyy
    Better dayz
    Got me thinking bout better dayz

    (Chorus to Fade)

    I send this one out, to all the homeboys down in uh Clinton, locked down
    Rikers Island, all them dudes I was uh locked up with
    E block, F block L I H
    N I C in Rikers Island
    Downstate
    All the peoples I met along the way
    Better Dayz is coming homeboy, keep your head up
