    how has my life changed so much
    where just a short while ago i lived for poetry and such
    and then act like you know
    sumthin’ interrupted my flow
    and suddenly i have no time
    no time to reflect
    no time to rewind
    every minute of my time is booked
    a minute ago I would have stopped and looked and said how

    i’m working full time and still holding down my family
    and i haven’t seen my mom in over a month
    and when she calls i’m talking but i’m busy and can’t talk long
    how man how
    did all of this happen
    she’s trying to make conversation but the minutes take too long
    i gotta go and flow, can’t hear her song

    me and my man
    he’s working dumb long hours
    comes in so late sometimes, i laugh
    who are you? i ask
    and i’m still up working with my sons
    and i say hon, can you help with this assignment too?
    he says I don’t get off at 4:30, YOU DO!
    i just worked on a $580 million dollar deal
    it’s after 9:00 p.m. keep it real
    i want to sit down and grab the remote
    like that’s all she wrote
    and i say
    u got jokes, cause i work all day too
    reality check for you!
    please, help with the math mr. Deal
    before i tell you some words that keep it so real
    you won’t like how you feel
    ****

    and he does and he helps
    and we work and we flow
    and that’s the way she goes
    cause the alarm rings and I’m back at work
    doin’ my thing
    ****** got me mumblin’ to myself
    just to stay on track
    i gotta laugh
    just sharing
