Lyrics

- VERSE -A funeral fit for a king, and we all said goodbye/to a shining star that fell from the sky/can't explain in words how I felt when I cried/on November the 5th when Tab said you had died/a lifetime of memories, gone in a flash/you fought so brave but had fallen at last/no more suffering, it's all in the past/as I cried on the shoulders of your Momz and your dad/you were more than a brother and a friend to me/and it was meant to be/that you left three seeds/so that those who remember you will get to see/that you're still here with us, especially me/so I'll tell your story 'til death sets me free/cuz you always had my back & wanted best for me/when I ran away from home, we knew where I'd be/here's to a damn good friend, souljah - rest in peace/- VERSE -No longer flesh, it's hard to believe/now it's up to God to recieve/retrieve his soul, I drop to my knees/and ask for relief to the wife and the seeds/not to live a life full of grief/his time on earth - frightfully brief/seems as though God is a thief/took our brother to the heights of the peaks/deceased artist, a plight of the meak/rather die for the cause than fight for the greed/leave legacies thru the mic when you speak/leave three boys in the likeness of he/Yak taught these boys how to rap/infact put Route 1 on the map/sad, tears drip right to the pad/but still celebrate the life that he had/- HOOK -Goodbye never came to mind/young and full of life/three boys and a wife/looking up at the sky/asking "God tell me why?"/tears straming from my eyes/and you know how much we love you/forever thinking of you/give anything to have one more day/things haven't been quite the same/in VA on Tha Highway/since that cold November day/the heavens took you away/- VERSE -I wish you could see us, strong as ever/because time's running out, and it's now or never/one of us take a fall, and we're down together/through the rain and sunshine and cloudy weather/I lost a brother, but I gained the lessons/having you in my life was a major blessing/you taught me, fought me, gave me strength and/now I walk down the road to the place you're resting/and I wish you could meet my brother's first born/knowing that you can't, man nothing hurts more/but after the dark night, sun in the sky/with my hands held high/Route 1 'til I die/talk about you all the time to my one and only/you'd be proud of your boy, you would love her homie/and I miss you painfully, but trust and believe/if you left so soon then there must be a reason/- VERSE -Astrologically we be one in the same/and geographically we both live on the same/side of Tha Highway, though we rolled different trains/what really matters is/ that we both did 4 kidz/and when I look at yours I can't wait to have mine/with Nate, Josh & Tug, and Tab is on the grind/with the love from above is impactin' like a 9/not from thugs, but the sun, after morning comes the shine/- HOOK -Goodbye it's too real this time/can't wake up to find/that it's all a lie/and that you're doin' fine/God won't you tell me why/you needed him at your side/and you know how much we love you/forever thinking of you/give anything to have one more day/things haven't been quite the same/in VA on Tha Highway/since that cold November day/the heavens took you away/and you know how much we love you/forever thinking of you/give anything to have one more day/things haven't been quite the same/in VA on Tha Highway/or within my family/we'll be together some day/- OUTRO -It's so hard to say goodbye/so hard to say goodbye/still don't know why you had to go/leaving us heartbroke in a winter so cold/so hard to say goodbye/too hard to say goodbye/still wonder why no longer at our side/here to weather the storms everyday we mourn/and so I hope you know we love you/and know that we're thinking of you/and know we'll remember your name/ever the same, that's never gon' change/let 'em know - Yak taught these boys how to rap/infact put Route 1 on the map/sad, tears drip right to the pad/but still celebrate the life that he had/
