lyrics

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you

Verse 1:
You played head games with me and did it with no shame
But I did shit to you too so it’s all just the same
You think that you’re cool when I think you’re lame
But you have your views too like whenever I stake my claim
Our grudges and battles and the shit that we bring
I’m the innocent one and another song sang
I’d be singin’ that song bitch but you got in my way
Why you always yellin’ damn there go another day

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you

Verse 2:
Charlie’s café, Bobby’s sweet love they speak the same thing
But you never noticed bitch cause you ain’t ever shut up dang
Why do you always fight me girl when you know you’ll never get your way
You get what you give duh ain’t that what they say
And I give and I give and I give and I give and I give endlessly
I don’t get anything

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you


Verse 3:
Throughout the years of our turmoil and our tears
I came out I was queer but you stayed put right here
When you can drive a dude nuts then you know that he cares
You know the dude still loves you if through that he’s still there
The big trips to the city or the small ones to Sayre
We’ll go down as legends Brad and Sallee took dares
Life in the ghetto where life just ain’t fair
Raisin a daughter in insanity’s lair
Beat the fuck out of our houses throwin’ shit everywhere
But together we’d pick up the shattered glass and declare
That it would be the last time that we’d be able to share
But it’s too late we’ve been there
Took shit straight played grin bare

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you
