    right now:



    As a youth, each Sunday, Dawn went to Church and
    Paid her respects and not to mention was a virgin.
    Kid pushed up, Dawn lettin' him
    Since he made her laugh and all the other girls was sweatin' him.
    Then things started to move without cause
    And a couple o'months later kid's pushin' for the drawers.
    Under pressure while exchangin' glances
    Dawn finally gives in to the sexual advances.
    Although it was a mad high cost for her
    Cuz' after the thrill was gone, so was the lust for her.
    Eventually he left her for another.
    Now feeling alone and betrayed by her lover
    She cried--for no longer knew which way she headed.
    Once dreamed of actually wearing white at her wedding
    And really being pure, now she thought she'd die without.
    Still she finds strength to continue with her life without
    Love...
    Without love...
    Without love...
    Without love...

    Verse two of Dawn's life--the second segment.
    What could be worse than to now find out you're pregnant?
    Poor Dawn couldn't sleep--laid awake
    Not ready for a child and plus her mother's gonna break.
    As she doesn't know how she's gonna bring up the subject,
    Consequences of being used as an object.
    In church though time's runnin' thin
    She decides to have the child because the doesn't want to sin.
    Props to the girl although it hit hard times;
    It was Hell finishin' school and working part-time.
    Yet Dawn did it though her youth went to waste.
    Little help from the government, she got her own place.
    HARD for an indepentant woman and a kid
    And as soon as she could get off the assistance, she did.
    Without no man who she once thought she'd die without
    Still she finds the strength to continue with her life without
    Love...
    Life without love...
    Life without love...
    Continue with her life without love...

    While Dawn worked two jobs tryin' to meet ends,
    Her son was busy cuttin' school and hangin' with his friends.
    So when she got words she tried to slap out the taste in his mouth
    And explain how important education is.
    Under stress, she takes two Bufferin.
    Son now tired of seein' his poor mother sufferin'.
    Starts to sell drugs though the cops did a raid.
    Guess who's in the mix, and being legal age
    Could do time, please call her employer
    To inform her that her son is gonna' need a lawyer.
    Never no good news, just more strife.
    Dawn barely havin' enough time to live her own life.
    Here's the judge's sentence, beggin' and pleadin'.
    Now spends nine hours on the bus to go and see him.
    Here's the judge's sentence, beggin' and pleadin'.
    Now spends nine hours on the bus to goa nd see him.
    Without no man who she once thought she'd die without
    Still she finds the strength to continue with her life without
    Love...
    Life without love...
    Life without love...
    Life without love...
    Continues life without love...








    guy's like the rapping Leonard Cohen

    What, talking quickly about how many cars and bling you have isn't telling a story?

    he talked about baby mamas and whatnot, i think. i never really liked tupac.
    as i said, i'm glad he's dead. big boi and andre were telling stories up until this latest album.


    oh yeah,
