(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
