LYRICS TO “LIVE” WORLD AIDS DAY ANTHEM

SONG: LIVE (WORLD AIDS DAY ANTHEM)

VERSE 1 

You only live once but YOLO aint the motto,
Cuz that livin fast today will make you slow it down tomorrow,
I done seen people live like they could never die,
Then their whole world crashed before they could even fly,
Yeah i’m trying to give you that real, speak to you through my music,
HIV cant destroy you if you open your eyes to it,
Ignorance is bliss better yet more like a death wish,
Playing Russian roulette when you pass on gettin tested,
Truth, Im a rapper but i’m tryna tell you to wrap it up,
These numbers keep on adding up, and frankly I done had enough,
Passin u these bars hope you catch em and youl benefit,
U Positive you love them, why not make sure that there negative
Breathe, All my peole Breathe,
I’m opening your eyes but its up to you to see
Think before you act, the outcome would be better,
Cuz what you do tonight, can change your life forever, so im tellin you to
HOOK 2X
Live my people gotta Live,
I’m tellin you to live,
Tryna give you power, tryna teach you what it is,
Now everybody Push, reach up to the clouds
Dont let it hold you down,
I just wanna see you live!

VERSE 2
Pray to god, have faith, just live UP
One love, we all together stay strong dont give up,
Spread love to your brothers your sisters in a stressful situation,
Cuz the world gon’ turn its back you should step up and embrace them,
man i’m stating real facts… Life keeps on moving fast,
If it knock you down, you better get back up and shoot again,
Might be tough Gotta fight same disease that brought magic down,
Kept On pushing kept on grinding,  Poof look at magic now,
That coulda defeated him,  he didnt wanna see it win,
Stood up with his head high,motivation live to win
Even when you down and your faith is gettin shorter,
Turn around you got supporters we will be up in your corner,
Even if you down and your faith is gettin shorter,
Turn around you got supporters we will be up in your corner,
Even if you down and your faith is gettin shorter,
Turn around you got supporters we will be up in your corner,
Now, breathe, all my people breathe,
I’m opening your eyes but its up to you to see,
This is real life, i just hope you dont ignore it,Knowledge is the power, only way to move forward, now go ahead and
HOOK 2X
Live my people gotta Live,
I’m tellin you to live,
Tryna give you power, tryna teach you what it is,
Now everybody Push, reach up to the clouds
Dont let it hold you down,
I just wanna see you live!
