    Lyrics

    (Kanye West)
    And I heard 'em say
    nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
    From the Chi, Like Tim, it's a Hardaway
    till this is in the name of love, like robert say
    Before you ask me to go get a job today,
    can I at least get a raise on the minimum wage?
    And I know the government administer aids,
    So I guess we just pray like the minister say
    Abu Akhbar be throwin' some hot cars
    things we seein' on the screen not ours
    but these niggas from the hood, so these dreams not far
    where I'm from the dope boys is the rock stars
    but they can't cop cars without seein' cop cars
    I guess they want us all behind bars, I know it, uh

    Chorus:
    And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
    And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
    But we'll find a way
    (Adam Levine)
    And nothin' lasts forever, but be honest babe
    It hurts, but it may be the only way

    (Kanye West)
    They say people in your life for seasons
    And anything that happen is for a reason
    And niggas gun-clappin' and keep to squeezin'
    And gran' keep prayin' and keep believin'
    In Jesus, and one day that she'll see him
    Till then in walk his footsteps and try to be him,
    The devil is alive, I feel him breathin'
    Claimin' money is the key, so keep on dreamin'
    And put them lottery tickets just to tease us
    My Aunt Pam can't put them cigarettes down,
    So now my lil' cousin smokin' them cigarettes now
    His job try to claim that he too niggerish now
    Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now?
    I can't figure it out, sick of it now,

    Chorus:
    And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
    And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
    But we'll find a way
    (Adam Levine)
    And nothin' lasts forever, but be honest babe
    It hurts, but it may be the only way

    (Adam Levine)
    With every worthless word we get more far away
    And nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
    And nothin lasts forever, but be honest, babe
    It hurts, but it may be the only way
