lyrics

[Tara Harrison]
Ooooooooo Oooohhhhhh Oooohhhhh Yeeeeaaahhhh

[Five Steez]

Five Steez... Tara Harrison
(Yeah) Yeah... (Ugh)... Uh huh... (Yeah)

Yow

Verse 1:

I'm sick of dreaming, time to make it real
business meetings, let us seal the deal
I bomb tracks, now I read contracts
link my lawyer, tell dem "I don't want that"
it's official, I built it from the ground up
the music sound tough, they think it's now luck
but I've been at this, theory and practice
I mastered the craft so where the cash is?
trips overseas, rip shows for G's
this role's for me, I spit flows for free
I did it all the time as a hobby as I kid
now I'm at the point where it probably is a biz
I control my music and my destiny
don't need the fame, real heads respect the Steez
the fake feel placed in jeopardy
my rep legendary and people check for me

Chorus [Tara Harrison] (Repeat)

With this beat, I lock my heart away
I go hard, spit fire all night, all day
turn it up and feel it right away
shining like the sunset next to me

Verse 2:

I don't need diamonds to shine, niggaz blind in they minds
I guess it's just a sign of the times
they go where the wind blow and ride with the tide
having all sorts of things deciding their lives
not I and I, that reside in the sky
the SunGod on earth, Christ personified
rappers rocking ice in summertime, Jesus pieces
not realizing they've got each his features
divine rhymes inclined with the business mind
bad boys try to shine and get prison time
focused on the music, no distractions
choosing banging beats for the dopest rapping
do it for the streets and hope they blast it
link with all the peeps and we blow some ashes
in the face of the weak 'cause we know it's classic
and you feel what I speak on this soulful magic

Bridge [Tara Harrison]

I dreamed a dream, I saw the light
to live my truth, it's my right
no hesitation, I roll with the wind (Oooooooooohhhhhhh)
no complications long as I keep moving
It's not for me, it's for the streets
but I will be all I can be
no hesitation, I roll with the wind (Oooooooooohhhhhhh)
and I can shine long as the record keep spinning

Chorus (Repeat)
