Lyrics

The Future

Written By: THEVOYCE

THE FUTURE

I shed a tear for the future
Care for the future
Believe me
You should have no fear
For the future
Stay near to the future
You will see
How I influence him
Like he influence me
I invest in the future
Time, Gear, Money, Love
Love?!
Yeh!!
Me and the future
A perfect pair
I do that work and he gives me a purpose here

I dine with the future
Spend time with the future
I can't let the future
Catch me in a stupour
So I stay sober for the future
Cause I believe if I don't
It's over for the future
I ride for the future
Survive for the future
If need be believe me I die
For the future
And I'd cry if the future dies
I see hope when I look into the future's eyes so

Chorus
I believe the children they the future
Don't let the future
Grow up to shoot ya
Cause I believe the children they the future
Let's teach em well
Have em lead the way, still!

And when the
Future smiles it's beautiful y'all
God said mulitiply
Make a future for all
I can't wait till my future's in the palm of my hand
But for now I tell the future all of my plans
I hope they come to fruition
I'm comfortable wishin'
The Future, prosperity, discipline, wisdom
Ugh Ugh
So that the future grows strong
I discipline the future so he never goes wrong

And that's alright
The future all bright
My favourite song for the future is "More Life"
And that's a song by Vybez Kartel
And if you threaten my future I break loose all hell
Cause I
Love the future and he loves me back
If he ask
I carry the future on my back
Till the future can stand on his own
And I embrace the future anywhere
The streets or my home cause

Chorus
I believe the children they the future
Don't let the futureGrow up to shoot ya
Cause I believe the children they the future
Let's teach em well
Have em lead the way, still!

The future ain't "packin no chrome"
Cause I taught the future that lifestyle's for actors alone
The future he acts on his own
But I give him nudges in the right direction
My poems!
The future is prone
To all types of hazards
While he sleeps I'm writing
All types of Ballads
To make sure the future stay balanced
My only fear for the future
Is our nonchalance
You up to the challenge?
The future is
Act now and you sure to see the future's kids
They'll be gorgeous, well rounded, not racists
facilitating changes
In short, astounding
And for the future my heart just keeps pounding
If blood is thicker than water
Then we drowning
And so I stay cautious of the future
to gain a heart of wisdom
That's knowledge for the future

Chorus
I believe the children they the future
Don't let the futureGrow up to shoot ya
Cause I believe the children they the futureLet's teach em wellHave em lead the way, still!
