Testo della canzone I Need a Light (Warren G), tratta dall'album In the Mid-Nite Hour

I Need a Light - Warren G

I need a light
(Light)
So I can smoke away this pain
I need a drink
(Drink)
So I can drink away this rain

Maybe a wife
(Wife)
Somebody to share my name
I need a song
A brand new song to sing

Long Beach back in the day was all hustlin'
Young niggaz in the neighborhood strugglin'
Prayin' to God we amount to somethin'
By livin' on the street where they constantly bustin'

Big Warren told us that they can't hold us
Niggaz ain't shit 'till they pass away
So I, watched my step
But when Ola Mae left I was a mothafuckin' basket case for real

God bless me
'Cuz I be on the east where they wanna arrest me
I break bread so they wanna suspect me
But look me in my eyes and say they wanna protect, me yeah

Ruthless, my style as a juvenile
Ran with a gang, got me a profile
As a child in the Beach I was wild
Ready to die and that's why

I need a light
(Light)
So I can smoke away this pain
I need a drink
(Drink)
So I can drink away this rain

Maybe a wife
(Wife)
Somebody to share my name
I need a song
A brand new song to sing

Could it be it was all so simple, droppin' a slick instrumental
Snoop bustin' 'bout the shit we went through
Nate singin' 'bout the city we came from
And niggaz so tight wasn't nothin' we wouldn't do

Time keep slippin'
But I ain't trippin' nigga, it's all about my children
So you can save that bullshit
'Cuz if I pull my shit, nigga I'ma kill you

The streets is watchin'
And niggaz fell victim from L.A. to Watts and Compton
But life goes on
It's just another song if you ain't to one gone listen

Ruthless, my style as a juvenile
But now I got a brand new G-Child
Big Warren gotta stay trunk tight
'Cuz he got the fly and that's why

I need a light
(Light)
So I can smoke away this pain
I need a drink
(Drink)
So I can drink away this rain

Maybe a wife
(Wife)
Somebody to share my name
I need a song
A brand new song to sing

Listen
Caviar wishes, twistin' stitches, all out race for the riches
Got a nigga missin' what rich is
And what a life mean if you do it for the kids

It's for my family y'all
Really the only one who understand me y'all
'Cuz it ain't hard to ball
But then who got ya back when it's time to fall

And it's amazin'
To stay up on top, your game so close to the pavement
Time brings change in mind
But then don't let the change bring your mind no time

Clearly, a conspiracy
Niggaz right near me but still ain't hearin' me
That's how it's always gone fly
'Till you ready to die and that's why

I need a light
(Light)
So I can smoke away this pain
I need a drink
(Drink)
So I can drink away this rain

Maybe a wife
(Wife)
Somebody to share my name
I need a song
