2pac – smile for me now lyrics


there’s gonna be some stuff that you’re gonna see
that’s gonna make it hard to smile in the future
(no noubt)

but whatever you see, through all the rain and pain
you gotta keep a sense of humor
gotta be able to smile through all this bullsh-t
remember that just keep ya head up

our lifesytle’s be close caption, addicted to fatal attraction
pictures and actions be played back in the mist of mashin’
no fairytales for this young black male
some see me stranded in this land of h-ll. lail and crack cells

[unverified] culture or the repercussion
while bustin’ on back-stabbing vultures
sellin’ my soul for material wishes, fast cars and b-tches
wishin’ i live my life a legend, immortalized in pictures

why shed tears? save your sympathy
my childhood years was spend burying my peers
in the cemetery, here’s a message to the newborns
waiting to breath, if you believe you can achieve, just look at me

against all odds, though life is hard, we carry on
living in the projects, broke, with no lights on
to all the g’s that follow me, protect your essence
born with less but you’re still precious, just smile for me now

oh, won’t you smile for me?
(just smile for me now)
oh, won’t you smile for me?
(n-gg- you black, smile for me now)

oh, won’t you smile for me?
(you ain’t got nothin’ to worry about)
(smile for me now)
oh, won’t you smile for me?
(and the next generation)

now as i open up my story with the blaze of your blunt
so you can picture thoughts slowly upon phrases i run
and i can walk you through the dayz that it done
i often wish that i can save everyone

but i’m a dreamer, have you ever seen a n-gg-
who was strong in the game?
over-looking his tomorrows and they finally came
look back on childhood memories and i’m still feelin’ the pain

turnin’ circles in my 9th grade dealin’ cocaine
too many h-ssels in my local lights, survivin’ the strain
and a man without a focused life could drive him insane
stuck inside a getto fantasy, hopin’ it’d change

but we’re not focused on reality, we broken in jane
had a dream of livin’ wealthy, makin’ it big
over football [unverified] what take it, he did

and after all my mama’s thankin’ god
for blessing her child
all my mama gotz to do now is collect and then smile

oh, won’t you smile for me?
(smile for me now)

f-ck tha world as we unload, we witness furious speeds
un-answered questions keep us all stressin’ curious g’s
back stabbed and bleeding, crooked thoughs, laced with weed

learnin’, duckin’ stray shots, bullets be hot
they burnin’, inhale the shroom smoke, visualize the flames
will i be smothered by my own pain?
strange wisdoms cowards conversate’

so quick to dis’ us, takin’ pictures for the feds
in desperate hopes they get us, hit us all, give us plenty centuries
forgive my stance, sinse i entered many penitentiaries

the best revenge is f-ck friends we milatary minded soljahs
bustin’ shots blindly, trying to find jehovah
to help me, somebody save me, lost and crazy
scared to drop a seed, hopin’ i ain’t cursed babies

maybe now, n-gg-z feel me now picture my pain
embrace my words, make the world change
and still i smile n-gg-

oh, won’t you smile for me?
(smile for me now)
oh, won’t you smile for me?
(smile for me now)
