Dead and Gone - T.I. feat Justin Timberlake

[T.I talking]
Ay, lemme kick it to you right quick man,
Nawt on some gangsta sh_t man on some real sh_t
Anybody who been through the same thing I'm sure you feel the same way
Big Phil, This is for you pimpin'

[Hook: Justin Timberlake (T.I.)]
Ohh (hey)
I've been travelin on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin to find my way back home (back home)
The old me's dead and gone,
Dead and Gone,
And Ohh.. (hey)
I've been travelin on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin to find my way back home (back home)
The old me's dead and gone,
Dead and Gone, yeahhe

[Verse 1: T.I.]
Every had one of them day wish you would have stayed home,
Run into a group of n_ggas who gettin their hate on,
You walk by - they get wrong,
You reply then sh_t get blown,
Way out of proportion way pass discussion,
Just you against them pick one then rush them,
Figure you get jumped here thats next,
They don't wanna stop there now they bustin,
Now you gushin ambulance rushin
You to the hospital with a bad concusion,
Plus you hit four times but it hit yo spine,
Paralyzed waist down and ya wheelchair bound,
Never mind that now you lucky to be alive,
Just think it all started you fussin wit three guys,
N_gga pride in the way but your pride is the way you can f**k
around get shot down anyday,
N_ggas die everyday,
All over bullsh_t, dope money, dice games, for ordinary hood sh_t,
Could this be cuz of hip-hop music,
Or did the ones with the good sense not use it,
Usually n_ggas don't know what to do when they back against the wall,
So they just start shootin,
For red or for blue or for blow I guess,
From Bankhead upto your projects,

[Bridge 1: T.I.]
No more stray now I'm straight,
Now I get it now I take time to think before I make mistakes just for my
family sake,
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today,
No regrets I'm blessed to say the old me dead and gone away,

[Hook: Justin Timberlake (T.I.)]
Ohh (hey)
I've been travelin on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin to find my way back home (back home)
The old me's dead and gone,
Dead and Gone,
And Ohh.. (hey)
I've been travelin on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin to find my way back home (back home)
The old me's dead and gone,
Dead and Gone, yeahhe

[Verse 2: T.I.]
I ain't neva been scared I live through tragic,
Situations could been dead lookin back at it,
Most of that sh_t didn't even have to happen,
But you don't think about it when you out there trappin',
In the appartments hangin', smokin and rappin,
N_ggas start sh_t next thing you know we cappin,
Get locked up then didn't even get mad,
Now I think about damn what a life I had,
Most of that sh_t look back just laugh,
Some sh_t still look back get sad,
Maybe my home boy still be around had I not hit the n_gga in the mouth that time,
I won that fight I lost that war,
I could still see my n_gga walkin out that door,
Who would've thought I'd never see Philant no more,
Got enough dead homies I don't want no more,
Cost a n_gga his jump cost me more,
I'd a took that ass whoppin out for sure,
Now think before I risk my life,
Take them chances to get my stripe,
A n_gga put his hands on me alright,
Otherwise stand there talk sh_t all night,
Cuz I hit you and you sue me,
I shoot you get locked up poor me,

[Bridge 1: T.I.]
No more stray now I'm straight,
Now I get it now I take time to think before I make mistakes just for my
family sake,
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today,
No regrets I'm blessed to say the old me dead and gone away,

[Hook: Justin Timberlake (T.I.)]
Ohh (hey)
I've been travelin on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin to find my way back home (back home)
The old me's dead and gone,
Dead and Gone,
And Ohh.. (hey)
I've been travelin on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin to find my way back home (back home)
The old me's dead and gone,
Dead and Gone

[Bridge 2: Justin Timberlake (T.I. adlibs)]
I turn my head to the east, I don't see nobody by my side,
I turn my head to the west, still nobody in sight,
So I turn my head to the north, swallow that pill that they call pride,
That old me's dead and gone, but the new me will be alright,
I turn my head to the east, I don't see nobody by my side,
I turn my head to the west, still nobody in sight,
So I turn my head to the north, swallow that pill that they call pride,
That old me's dead and gone, but the new me will be alright, cause
