Lyrics

Intro - J Ivy

This is a story

A testimony about a woman we all love.

Before we knew her name, she greeted us with a big mama hug'.

On the block she was our matriarch.

Caring for us was her mission she had vision she was our prophet

So she prayed for us.

If we were ever hungry she made sure a meal was made for us.

Sent us away with some wine candy and a smile

A cookie for every child, she was so sweet.

Our mommas would confide in this wise guide, their secrets she would keep under key and lock.

She was a rock in a rocking chair.

When the hood started changing she wouldn't let hoodlums stop and stare.

Never intimidated, she'd never back down. For her, these streets were sacred grounds.

She's the pillar in every village, every community, every town.

When you're introduced to her true love is found.

She ain't just an old lady on the porch, she's the torch that's been passed to shed light when the street lights weren't bright enough.

Please know that we love you much.

This

This is a story

A testimony about a woman we all love.

This is the story. Of Ethel Bobcat. &More..&More

Verse One - Donn T

What a waste of time,

When you seem to let all of your innocence pass you by.

I couldn't see the tragedy in that smile you gave me,

I missed the sign.

Didn't think I'd lose myself

Baby tell me who am I?

I gave you everything

And you didn't even try.

Chorus - Donn T

As long as I'm with you,

I'll never write my own story.

As long as I'm with you,

I'll never shine my own light.

Verse Two - Chill Moody (Donn T)

I admit that I mis-stepped, told you before

Asked if you believe you showed me the door, sent my soul to the floor.

Was told to pick my battles, also taught that words are the strongest weapons that are chosen in war.

So i'm gon watch mine and dodge yours, find my own light, it's obvious you got yours, with all those bright ideas.

Faced with nightmares that I once feared but now i'm free. Now i'm (free).

Got back to being me, i'm moving too, wishing it was three of me.

So when it pop off nah, you can't escape seeing me.

On every TV screen scroll my timeline you'll see my dreams

King with a crown, and I was down for you to be my queen.

Keep it a bean them facts hard to speak. (Eternity burning)

Take it back, that spots hard to reach. (Seeds are growing)

And my heart is weak. (My heart is weak)

Mind as strong as ever, can't give you all of me.

One thing I can afford is no to speak, your talk is cheap.

As long as I was with you, I probably wrote thousands of songs, and they was hits too, but you aint want to notice you focused in on the miscues and now that we've been split in two you hearing every lyric just wishing I'd say I missed you.

Chorus - Donn T

As long as I'm with you,

I'll never shine my own light.

As long as I'm with you,

I'll never write my own story.

For every mood
