Fame (Album Version)

Fame (Album Version)

DMX

[DMX]

Uh huh (Y'KNOW?)

..

ARF!

Uhh..

Take it for what it's worth my birth was a blessing

Sent to live and die on earth as a lesson

We each have a star all we have to do is find it

Once you do everyone who sees it will be blinded (WHAT?)

They'll tell you that you're bright and say you have a future

When you turn your back same cats'll try to shoot ya

Niggaz ain't shit I can live on both sides of the fence

Forget what you do, when you talk, see what you really meant (aight?)

That's what I thought, them niggaz was bluffin (uh)

They talk all day but say, nothin (uh)

It gets so dark (WHAT?) haze so intense

Since this first rain it's like it's rained ever since (WHAT?)

Never got paid for a rhyme but I flow (whoo)

Never got a plate on time but I grow (whoo)

Live your life, STAY on the line but I go (UHH)

Went from doin crime to bein kind cause I know

Chorus: DMX (repeat 2X)

I'm gon' live forever, I'm never gon' die

Only thing I fear is that I'm never gon' fly

Carry my weight but I'm never gon' cry

Shit I tell why'all niggaz straight cause I'm never gon' lie

[DMX]

What is about who I am that makes me unforgettable (HMM)

What it is about what I've done that makes it so incredible (uhh)

"More money, more problems" -- well the fame was worse (uh-huh)

I reached out for love and what came back was thirst (WHAT?)

Blessed with the curse (uh) niggaz don't hear me

Niggaz don't hear me, why'ALL NIGGAZ, don't hear me (uh)

What'd I just say? "Nigga g'head" - you see that?

You gots to FEEL ME to catch what I'm sayin, BELIEVE THAT (UHH!)

But leave that, alone (WHAT?)

We gon' make a nigga want to be at, your home (WHAT?)

Oh you kinda quiet with the heat at, your dome (UHH!)

If the dog got he's gonna bring back a bone

cause we got the chrome (C'MON!)

This is what I live for, or die for

I'm the nigga with the high score, you try for

What you niggaz want to lie for? It changes nothin

I'm true for cats, yet some strangers bluffin

Chorus

[DMX]

Now if I take what he gave me and I, use it right (uh-huh)

In other words if I listen and, use the light (uh-huh)

Then what I say will remain here, after I'm gone

Still here, on the strength of a song, I live on (HMM)

No second-guessin on what I stood for, I was good for

stoppin niggaz from killin each other in the hood war (UHH)

Comin through showin love, throwin up (UHH)

Them cats not throwin love, you know whassup (WHAT?)

Dark Man baby, that's my name

and I gots to be the realest nigga (UHH) up in this game

Cause ain't no shame, they don't make em like, this no more

Real to the core, big heart but built for war

I stand for what I believe in

Even if what I believe in stops me from breathin

Relatives grievin, but I ain't went nowhere

Listen to the song (C'MON) I'm right there

Chorus
