You cannot walk in my life,
Cause you haven't been stabbed in the arm three times
with a knife.
You cannot say you're just like me,
Cause you didn't test positive, HIV.
You cannot say you feel my pain.
Because, you ain't never hold up in the rain.
You cannot do what I did
'cause, I did four years in the pen.
You cannot have my glory.
'cause, mine has been one hell of a story.
You cannot live my dream.
'cause, you ain't been beat by your own damn momma
You cannot say I'm gonna live long,
Do you really think I'm that damn strong?
You cannot live my life
