Can It Be (Half a Million Dollars and 18 Months Later) Lyrics

Can It Be(Half A Million Dollars And 18 Months Later) - Murs

It's been two years man

 

Of of of waitin' man

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

From my supporters and my fans

Man I know y'all been waitin'

Now it's finally here and thank you for your patience

The world's gone crazy since we last spoke

Bloodshed and war the absence of hope

Shootin' at the school economy's a joke

Homies on heroine homies on coke

But can you even blame 'em

When they only tryin' to cope damn

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

All these rappers wanna talk about is guns and d**e

Don't they realize we all at the end of our rope

The future all depends in the power of our quotes

The power of a pen the power of a vote

The power of your words the power of your voice

The power of America's the freedom of choice

We choose to do nothin' we lose and we sufferin'

(Can it be )

That it's time to do somethin'

It's not socialism it's not communism

 

It's lovin' each other realize there's no difference

It's positive movement gradual improvement

When no one else does believe you can do it

My heart is a speaker I bleed this music

The beat's in my blood I must transfuse it

If it wasn't for this yeah I just might lose it damn

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

My goddaughters Nadia Simone

Diana know when not our father's ever comin' home

Claim by the streets with them other war zone

Tears in my eyes as I'm writin' this song

Mommy workin' two jobs tryin' to do it on her own

No matter where I go or how far I roam

Know that I love and you'll never be alone

(Can it be )

Damn y'all so grown

And a and a wise man told me man like

(You don't have to worry 'cause I'm coming)

Life is like a table full of like glasses of water

(Back to where I should have always stayed)

And your job is to keep 'em all full

You know what I'm sayin'

So everyone's happy

(And now I've heard the maybe to your story)

But at the same time

You gotta keep your pitcher full of water

So you could fill everybody else up

(And it's enough love for me to stay)

And it's like damn

 

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

From the independent hip hop scene

Now they talkin' like how I'm not a hip hop fiend

Needle in my arm can't they see I'm O D 'in

You'll never take the strife from this triple O G in

I blaze trails created festivals

Lost fifty G's on paid dues is that acceptable

What I'm not down for the cause

(Can it be )

Hold on Mike I'ma need a few bars

I could've done the Nas and scream hip hop is dead

I got up off my a** and I did somethin' instead

 

Signed with the devil brought the scene up a level

Killed the beast from within I'm a born again rebel

Tryin' to save the youth from the way of the gun

And if I only save one then my job is done

So you can say what you will but you should judge me none

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

From my God from my faith as I move place to place

Times I thought if I could just die it'd be great

Drop on the spot man I didn't even care

I stopped talkin' to you I stopped sayin' prayers

Numb from the liquor and the antidepressants

Pressure from the label studio stressin'

Almost lost my passion to pursue this profession

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

From myself from my soul when I'm out on the road

I give so much shout to these kids I don't know

I thought I lost you with no one to talk to

But you're the one that open up these doors that I walk through

 

I can't fault you only forgive you

I'm the only one that seen the pain that you been through

 

The drama the struggle that built all your issues

(Can it be I stayed away too long )

The drama the struggle that built all these issues

Is all just to make sure they never forget you

Did I leave your mind when I was gone

 

It's not my thing trying to get back

But this time let me tell you where I'm at
