2pac – pain (og original version) lyrics

Loading...

[intro: sample from star trek v: the final frontier]
i couldn’t help but notice your pain
my pain?
it runs deep – share it with me!

[verse 1: 2pac]
they’ll never take me alive, i’m gettin’ high with my four-five
c-cked on these suckas, time to die
even as a youngster causin’ ruckus on the back of the bus
i was a fool all through high school, kickin’ up dust
but now i’m labeled as a troublemaker – who can you blame?
smokin’ weed helped me take away the pain
so i’m hopeless, rollin’ down the freeway swervin’, don’t worry
i’m ’bout to crash up on the curb ‘cause my vision’s blurry
maybe if they tried to understand me – what should i do?
i had to feed my f-ckin’ family – what else could i do
but be a thug? out slangin’ with the homies
f-ck hangin’ with them phonies in the clubs!
got my mind on danger, never been a stranger to homicide
my city’s full of gang-bangers and drive-by’s
why do we die at an early age?
he was so young, but still a victim of the 12 gauge
my memories of a corpse, mind full of sick thoughts
and i ain’t goin’ back to court, so f-ck what you thought!
i’m drinkin’ hennessy, runnin’ from my enemies
will i live to be 23? there’s so much pain

[chorus: singer & (stretch)]
ohhhh…
tired of the strain and the pain
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot”)
ohhhh…
tired of the strain and the pain
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot, boy”)

[verse 2: stretch]
years and years of that rough life
runnin’ crazed and wild as a kid and growin’ tough with a knife
and livin’ trifed on the regular, buckin’ out compet-tors
see ’em fake a move and chase ’em down like the f-ckin’ predator
get in trouble every day in school, act a fool
and you know i had to break every rule
showin’ off for the b-tches ‘cause i had the mad rep
so i had to watch my back when it was time to step
but my grimies is the grimiest with love for me
pop, pop, pop, and send a chuckle up above for me
ayo, currency kept p-ssin’ me by, but i didn’t cry, broke
got hit off with the pack and started sellin’ c0ke
and now the money’s lookin’ lovely
pop the drop top and now the b-tches wanna rub me
kick ’em the game, it’s all the same
i kick it back yo, give ’em slack yo
and now they label me the mack yo, people check it
get disrespected if you front on the birdman, you heard, man
catch a couple shots from the glock in my hand
d-mn! at least i’m realistic with my biscuit
you know you get yo’ -ss twisted, so run for cover
me and my man got a plan, kickin’ major dust
so if you owe, n-gga, look for the gauge to bust
a lot of pressure with the street fame, it’s a deep game
and my mama always cryin’ yo, there’s so much pain

[chorus: singer & (stretch)]
ohhhh…
so tired, so tired…
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot”)
ohhhh…
so…so…
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot”)

[verse 3: 2pac]
they got me mobbin’ like i’m loc’ed, and ready to get my slug on
i load my clip and slip my motherf-ckin’ gloves on
i ain’t scared to blast on these suckas if they test me
trust – i got my glock c-cked, playa, if they press me
bust – on motherf-ckers with a p-ssion
better duck, ‘cause i ain’t lookin’ when i’m blastin’
i’m a nut and drinkin’ hennessy, and gettin’ high
on the lookout for my enemies, don’t wanna die, tell me why
‘cause this stress is gettin’ major
a buck 50 across the face with my razor
what can i do but be a thug until i’m dead and gone?
i keep my brain on the game and stay head strong
these sorry b-st-rds wanna k!ll me in my sleep
i’m real, they cannot see
and every day is just a struggle, steady thuggin’ on the streets
and i’ll be ballin’, loc, don’t let ’em make you worry
keep swingin’ at these suckas ’til you buried
i was born to raise h-ll, a n-gga from the gutta
word to mother, i’m touched
out kickin’ dust up, ready to bust
i’m on the scene, steady muggin’ mean, until they k!ll me
i’ll be livin’ this life, i know you feel me; there’s so much pain

[outro: singer & (stretch)]
ohhh…
tired of the strain and the pain
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot”)
ohhh…
tired of the strain and the pain
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot”)
ohhh…
tired of the strain and the pain
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot”)
ohhh…
tired of the strain and the pain
(“don’t get too close because you might get shot, boy”)
ohhhhhh…
