MC Lyte

MC Lyte - Eyes are the Soul

rate me

He knows he's leaving, not much time left

Holding on to his very last breath

I saw him last week, nervous and uptight

Losing sleep, stays up all night

Wishin he woulda used his mind and not rushed

to push in the bush but took his time

to get to know the girl he slapped skins with

shared needles with

Wish he could go back, change the direction

But now he's got the infection

I spoke to him, gave him inspired words

I'm sure he's heard

live by the sword, die by the sword

What's left, pray to the oh Lord

You can deny but the truth will unfold

because the eyes are the soul

Eyes are the soul..

Eyes are the soul..

I look into his eyes, but he's so high

from the crack, he thinks that he can fly

He has problems he doesn't like solving

Takes one hit, and thinks the world stops revolving

19, his eyes full of tears

He hasn't smiled at least for a year

His mom is gone cause he was high one night

while they killed her, because of the crack pipe

He's wanted by the law

because he's robbed at least three grocery stores

He's lost, all control

Take a look, eyes are the soul

Eyes are the soul..

Eyes are the soul..

Eyes are the soul..

I look into her eyes, she's so young

but I know, where she's comin from

I've watched her grow, little girl down the street

White shirts and skirts with pleats

She cried, fear in her voice

Not knowing, she had a choice

Oh so sad, oh so lonely

If she knew that she's not the only

one in school that didn't use the caution

Facin, raisin a baby or abortion

Her mother said she had to leave

Who wants to be where a baby is not received

No ultimatum, she's goin to the G.Y.N.

to put it to an end

She's learned a lesson I suppose

I can tell, eyes are the soul

Eyes are the soul..

Eyes are the soul..

Eyes are the soul..
