Jay-Z - Beach Chair lyrics

Life is but a dream to me I don't wanna wake up
30 odd years without having my cake up
So I'm bout my paper
24/7, 365, 366 in a leap year
I don't know why we here
Since we got a beat here
Life is but a beach chair (chair, chair, chair)
Went from having shabby clothes
To crossing over Abbey Road
Hear my angels singing to me (are you happy Hov?)
I just hope I'm hearing right
Karma's got me fearing life
Khalik are you praying for me
See I got demons in my past so I got daughters on the way
If the prophecy's correct than the child shall have to pay
For the sins of the father
So I barter my tomorrows against my yesterdays
In hopes that she'll be O.K.
And when I'm no longer here
To shade her face from the glare
I'll give her my share of Carol's Daughter
And a new beach chair

(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose

Life is but a dream to me
Gun shots sing to these
Other guys but lullabies don't mean a thing to me
I'm not afraid of dyin'
I'm afraid of not tryin'
Everyday hit every wave like I'm Hawaiian
I don't surf the net
No I never been on Myspace
Too busy letting my voice vibrate
Carving out my space
In this world of fly girls
Cut throats in diamond cut ropes I twirls
Business round corners where the sun don't shine
I let the wheels give a glimpse of hope in ones grind
Some said "Hov how you get so fly?"
I said from not being afraid to fall out the sky
My physical's a shell so when I say farewell
My soul will find an even higher plane to dwell
So fly you shall so have no fear
Just know that life is but a beach chair (chair, chair, chair)

(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
Life is but a dream
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
Life is but a dream

Life is but a dream can't mimic my life
I'm the thinnest cut slice
Intercut, the Winner's Cup
Where winter's rough enough to interrupt life
That's why I'm both saint and sinner...nice
This is Jay every day no compromise
No compass comes with this life just eyes
So to map it out you must look inside
Sure books can guide you but your heart defines you chica
The corazón is what brought us home
In great shape like Heidi Klum, maricon, I am on
Permanent vaca', life is but a beach chair
Song's like a Hallmark card until you reach here
So till she's here
And she's declared
The heir
I will prepare
A blueprint for you to print a map for you to get back
A guide for your eyes
So you won't lose scent
I'll make a stink for you to think
I ink these verses
Full of prose so you won't get conned out of 2 cents
My last will and testament I leave my heir
My share of Roc-a-fella Records and a shiny new beach chair

(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
Life is but a dream
(I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
Life is but a dream

Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
Life is but a dream
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up (wake up)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna lose
Life is but a dream

(I hear my angels sing)
(I hear my angels sing)
(I hear my angels sing)
