Dmx - I'm Gonna Crawl lyrics

Uh
Live and learn
Life's a lesson (life is a lesson)
And I'm the teacher

First I'm gonna crawl, uh (crawl)
Then I'm gonna walk, uh huh (walk)
Then I'm gonna stand, uh huh (stand)
Then I'm gonna talk, uh (talk)
Then I gotta learn, what (learn)
In order to teach, (teach)
Then I gotta burn (burn)
In order to reach (reach), my niggas

Yo, I see what I see, day by day
Hopin' that the Lord can pave my way
Have I been forgotten, have I forsaken?
Or maybe I'm just wrong with the moves that I've been makin'
Hatin' others 'cause they hate me, over envy
Wanna send me, when we used to be friendly
Think I started off on top? With multi platinum albums?
Naw dog, I started off on the block
I just did shit to get shit
Niggas always knew I was down to hit shit
That's why I stay wit shit
Played with shit, but it wasn't a game
First time locked down, wasn't the same
A whole new world, nothin' but close to steel
Niggas gettin' split for real, miss a good deal
They ain't call nobody, 'cause don't nobody care
They got my back against the wall, fuck it, I'm just here

First I'm gonna crawl, uh (crawl)
Then I'm gonna walk, uh huh (walk)
Then I'm gonna stand, uh huh (stand)
Then I'm gonna talk, uh (talk)
Then I gotta learn, what (learn)
In order to teach, (teach)
Then I gotta burn (burn)
In order to reach (reach), my niggas

First I'm gonna crawl, uh (crawl)
Then I'm gonna walk, uh huh (walk)
Then I'm gonna stand, uh huh (stand)
Then I'm gonna talk, uh (talk)
Then I gotta learn, what (learn)
In order to teach, (teach)
Then I gotta burn (burn)
In order to reach (reach), my niggas

Dog, it's like this, when the fog is type thick
A nigga might flip, and a nigga bite quick
But I stay focused on what's important
Supportin' my family, fuckin' with my dogs and reportin'
According to the man upstairs, we all got our own problems
So why the fuck you worryin' about theirs?
It was a long time ago, look awake, 'cause he'll leave you
I hear none, speak none, see none, evil
All I can do is teach you what I know
How I flow, how I get down, where I go
Maybe what I been through will send you
Somewhere other than where dreams all out the window
I love my people, all of my people
And God gon' keep me callin' my people
You gots to live life to the fullest
It ain't always about the size of the gun, sometimes it's the bullet

First I'm gonna crawl, uh (crawl)
Then I'm gonna walk, uh huh (walk)
Then I'm gonna stand, uh huh (stand)
Then I'm gonna talk, uh (talk)
Then I gotta learn, what (learn)
In order to teach, (teach)
Then I gotta burn (burn)
In order to reach (reach), my niggas

First I'm gonna crawl, uh (crawl)
Then I'm gonna walk, uh huh (walk)
Then I'm gonna stand, uh huh (stand)
Then I'm gonna talk, uh (talk)
Then I gotta learn, what (learn)
In order to teach, (teach)
Then I gotta burn (burn)
In order to reach (reach), my niggas

Every day, we live and learn, take it step by step
And we create our own path, until there's no life left
I hold my death off for as long as I can
Knowin' my man is plottin' with the chrome in his hand
Supposed to be fam, but niggas get shady over money
My nigga, pull out the 380 over money
Crazy over money, can't do without it
I got other shit to deal with, I'm like, forget about it
It's the one I don't know but must teach that comes first
Because he comes with the thirst of a nigga that tatted the worst
It's like a curse that's to be lifted
He was there but he gripped it
Got a call and he shifted
Once he found out, he was gifted
Gotta kick it from the heart, and I hope you got it
It was there from the start, I just hope you spot it
'Cause it's my blood on paper, my soul on paper
Words to live by will leave a hole in the paper

First I'm gonna crawl, uh (crawl)
Then I'm gonna walk, uh huh (walk)
Then I'm gonna stand, uh huh (stand)
Then I'm gonna talk, uh (talk)
Then I gotta learn, what (learn)
In order to teach, (teach)
Then I gotta burn (burn)
In order to reach (reach), my niggas
