Come here Royce (Come over here, sit down, let me talk to you) (Right here, over here) (Sit on daddy's lap) (I want to tell you something) [Chorus: Amerie (Royce)] Life is a moment in space When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place (This is life) Life is a moment in space When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place [Royce] Listen, yo Little Royce Nickel Nine, eyes wide with sight With a future as bright as the light in the eyes of Christ Ready to take on the world and whatever is in it Proof read, sign, and seal whatever you finish I can only lead you while you're on your quest for knowledge I'ma teach you to have sense and to respect the dollar Hope for the best, and you'll see, your world will be solid I'ma teach you the truth, even behind worldly logic This is life, cut and dry, days is bright, nights is dark Fights get sparked, it's almost like to get ahead You got to be twice as smart, the realities of life is harsh Just know that God's keeping you level He'll even speak through the ghetto to reach you Just to teach you that the streets is the devil Everybody's dishonest, different Which means that we're dying by livin' Oblivious to the time that we're given So you don't prepare for the death, you live for the life And live right like, do right by your kids and your wife Have fun as a child, yo them years is precious The future brings fear and stresses as the year progresses You're gonna turn a lot of them down, you're gonna feel rejection You're gonna tell a lot of lies and you're gonna hear confessions It's a two way street when you deal in his presence Only your life can show that everything is real in this message This is life [Chorus] [Royce] Yo, the whole world is upon you, the pressure is on And you can probably sum your life up the best when you're gone Upon the creation of all men, destiny's born For us to reproduce, so you can keep the legacy goin' I know you think I'm Superman, but I got weaknesses too I keep a firm leash on things by believing in you And after I'm gone I live on breathing through you And anything I had in this life, I leave it to you Aim for the sky and fly till you come back down I had you the baton and you run, till you come back 'round Let your heart tell your temper, "Put that gun back down!" Dry your tears up and turn that frown upside-down It'd be plenty to cry for, think life, not death You got much more to live for than to die for But you got to stay humble Cause just as hard as your work to get it There's people working harder to take it from you Cause life, something that people take for granted As time passes, you're gonna want something back But you won't get it cause history is made every second So you crave every lesson and save every blessin' No matter how you view the world yo, you never will get it The world will be the world through the eyes of whoever is in it But things ain't gonna always go right Look at it like, yo this ain't your day, but this your life, and live Life [Chorus] [Amerie] There will be trials and tribulations But don't let them, don't let them, don't let them bring you down I said you better keep going to your destination After your darkest hour the sun will come around This is life Yo I don't care, I don't care if this song don't sell one copy That's not even what it's for It's for you, my boy This is life (You gotta keep going on, you gotta keep moving on) (Be strong, be strong, be strong) (Cause this is life)
