IF IT WASN'T FOR YOU Lyrics

by Handsome Boy Modeling School

This is the story of you, what makes you special, where you come from
This is one of the most exciting stories ever told
Because it's about you
And you are one of the most important things in this world, you

She ride 'cuz her testament has been day one
A nigga got trust 'cuz she been day one
They one's done, build a fam Bruce Lee
So we K I S the BS goodbye

Damsel in distress so I stress good guy
Tarzan and Jane more like Bonnie and Karem
Could you be my sugar water, tonic and cream?
Put the dean in my yard, like religion and king

And diamond you a sight
Like unidentified rims spinning in the night
Me without your balance just wouldn't sit right
Like written wouldn't be past tense without ten

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you
If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you

Hey, because of you my little lady named fame
People spot me like nerves spot pain
You put the S on my chest and inside my veins
Before that this darkie had to smile for them to see me

Now them same kids that used to diss wanna be me
Due to me being down with you
Hooked up in 82' plus six when you gave me my fix
You fixed my house and banking accounts
You fixed me up with too many women to count

Only right for you to have your side niggas too
And even when you don't come back
At least when you was here for me
The world cheered from you

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you
If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you

Pen you my muthafucka, I'm a hold you like piss
Even when the itchy burn make me wanna let go
There you go smudgin', see actin' mad funny
But you kissin' loose leafs so I can't be mad

You my confidant when I couldn't tell pops that report card came
You signed off with me
So when the checks come you'll be signin' off with me
But when I'm dead and gone will you sign off?

Oh, Paper mate you light like paper weight
But you pack ink, can make tattoos turn pussy
And when it's mush time you be there like a man
In my hand spillin' my heart with you blood

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you
If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you

You're my first born, my little Capricorn kid
Slid in this world at one pound eight ounce
My miracle baby grown in to a little lady
So fast, like pressing the gas while the tape bounce

Through you, me and your grandfather grew closer
I understand now, all he try to give for me
I wanna give it to you the same way
But sometimes fall short and you still live for me

I just want you to know
I may not show all the right feelings or say the right words
But you're my little black diamond
And always shining in my heart and that's way beyond words

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you
If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you

You've been with me on the inside homie
Puff life in me ever since I was a knee high, I knew I had heart
Ain't gang related but you relative to blood
AB negative you represent love

Though you break like Pringles, you're heroic in your size
You make David beat Goliath, you heart beaker
Broads love you on Valentines day
Quaker brought beats to my chest before hip hop
Just take some time to remember

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you
If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you

If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you
If it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you, if it wasn't for you
I need you

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
