Can't Live Without You
by Pretty Ricky



It's 4 O'clock in the morning.
And she ain't feeling right.
I'm on a first class trip.
Through this place called life.
I don't know what to do.
'cause my body's still shaking.
I know it's time to man up.
And start my education.
I need someone to call on.
So I called on my best friend.
I said "Bro, I can't take it".
He said "Boy, stop tripping".
So I hung up the phone.
Packed my shit and got right.
I know what I gotta do now.
Be a man and face life.

Maybe we could work it out.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
And every time I think about it.
I know a nigga can't live without you.
Ain't no need to cry about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
I even wrote a song about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.

At the beginning you was gone.
I was staying wit my momma.
I stayed getting in trouble, man.
Straight damn drama.
I started dancing so I stayed out of trouble.
'cause I stayed in school, selling candy so my money doubled.
But then you told me man, dancing was for punks.
Then you told me come and stay.
And you ain't care what I want.
You told me come and dance and rap wit my brothers.
You taught me how to love and how to care for my brothers.
And then you taught me all yo hustlin' skills.
Just in case I get alone I know how to pay bills.
You told me I was straight regardless of a deal.
And I love you man for that 'cause you always kept it real.

Maybe we could work it out.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
And every time I think about it.
I know a nigga can't live without you.
Ain't no need to cry about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
I even wrote a song about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.

Now that I made it, it feel real good.
Take you out the hood.
Put you on be and the block in the middle of the woods.
And as hard as it seems, you was there for me.
One bedroom apartment.
On 6-0 14 number efficiency down in Coverly.
Told you I had a dream.
And even though I like to cheat.
I'm going along my Georgia peach and that's a promise I'm gone keep.
To the end, never gone blend.
And I can hear you tell yo friends.
And I can see you want to buss and fuss with yo brand new Benz.
To the world, baby it's yours.
I'd give you the world 'cause you not no ordinary girl.
I'm yo son, you my ol' girl.
My momma, we shared for 19 years.
And from the bottom of my foundation I'm telling you how I feel,
and I love ya.

Maybe we could work it out.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
And every time I think about it.
I know a nigga can't live without you.
Ain't no need to cry about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
I even wrote a song about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.

See, I fell in love wit ya.
want to raise my kids wit ya.
But you left me all alone wit tears dripping down the picture.
I remember the day like yesterday.
May 9th, to be exact.
I'd do anything to get you back.
Even though I know you ain't coming back.
I'm serious as a heart attack.
Could we get it back the way it was?
'cause I know you had some outside influences that pulled a plug.
The reality, Junebug, girl I know we'll always be together.
I got you locked away deep in my heart, always here forever.

Maybe we could work it out.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
And every time I think about it.
I know a nigga can't live without you.
Ain't no need to cry about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
I even wrote a song about it.
'cause you know I can't live without you.
