(Verse 1) I coulda been a dealer... distributing the white In the dark only filler For the void in my life, coulda danced with the devil Under moonlight formed into a cereal killer living the spoon life... Cheerio, I aint milking the idea Of walking up boxed in knowing ima die here... Food for thought, could of chose a different route Gang banging on the corner bust straps for the clout But love what's I'm bout, know I said it before I'm SkyBlew to the bone Skeletoring some more Coulda of been a whore, sleeping with every girl that I meet But committed to my dreams honeymoon in my sleep... Coulda been discreet but a psycho on the low Addicted to mannequins taking pics at the store I know... I coulda of been like, all of the above But nah... I rather spread love... Duh!
(Verse 2) Coulda been a stereo type Ratchet & following with followers of radio like A knight in dim armor condemned to karma For lying to the princess vowed not to let nobody harm her... I coulda been a dead beat dad With a lost son in the world heart full of wrath Forced on path that he didn't chose. Nobody to guide him... chances minuscule Of being what he coulda been a lawyer a doctor Pilot helicopters all he need was a father Coulda been him, nah that coulda been you, you Coulda been the ish wha, what would you do, do? If you didn't have a place to call home yo Coulda been lost in the cold tryna regain your soul I know... I coulda of been like, all of the above But nah... I rather spread love... Duh!
(Verse 3) I'm none of the above ima dreamer You can see it in my demeanor they say the grass greener On the other side... you can have that Rather not be a coulda been shoulda went to the NASDAQ Stock broking, but never stop hoping Why fix what's not broken, I got my token For the train ride... mentally I know I can't hide From who I'm meant to be the truth faint lies Ima live for tonight while the street light guides me Planned my path it don't surprise me All I see, is my destiny in front in me Not a coulda been all I know is who I wanna be Not a wanna be, but original Only 1 me, separate from the fictional Love prevails & my tails the embodiment Take your time, you'll see what I prolly meant
