How Come
(Eminem)

So I changed huh? You got a phone
Pick it up, call me

How Come... we don't even talk no more
And you don't even call no more
We don't barely keep in touch at all
And I don't even feel the same love when we hug no more
And I heard it through the grapevine... We even Beefin Now
After all the years we been down... ain't no way no how
This bullshit can't be true
We Family... ain't a damn thing changed... unless it's you!

We were so young
So full of life and vibrance
Side by side, wherever you was riding, I went
So close, almost on some bonnie and clyde shit
When Ronnie died you was right by my side
With a shoulder to cry on and tissue to wipe my eyes
And a bucket to catch ever tear I cried inside it.
You even had the same type of childhood I did...
Sometimes I just wanna know why is it that you succaim to yours
And mine I survived it. You ran the streets, I 9 to 5ed it
We grew up, grew apart as time went by us...
And I blew up to both yours and mines surprises.
Now I feel a vibe I just can't describe it
Much as your pride tries to hide it. you're cold
Your touch is just like ice.
And your eyes is a look of resentment.
I can sense it and I don't like it.

How Come... we don't even talk no more
And you don't even call no more
We don't barely keep in touch at all
And I don't even feel the same love when we hug no more
And I heard it through the grapevine... We even Beefin Now
After all the years we been down... ain't no way no how
This bullshit can't be true
We Family... ain't a damn thing changed... unless it's you!

It was my dream at first to be off spitting a verse
On my own album with a deal but shit got worse
Fore I came out I woulda killed a nigga first
For I let him disrespect me, or check me over some
Worthless bitch that I wasn't with
I woulda hit it and quit
But you were fitting to talk with her and tell her she was the shit
I told you don't get involved with her
You would smoke in the car with her
Coming outta the bar with her
Stumbling half drunk
Like you were husband and wife or somethin'
But me catching her fuckin' other niggas musta hurt your pride or something
Cause you were openin your mouth to people like you wanted with me.
When all I tried to do was show that your bitch was shifty.
And every sister, fares and all the shit that I produced
You acting like I ain't your man and lying like she can't be loose.
But I am really your friend, I'm just trying to tell ya the truth.
Don't hate the game or the player
The one that's changing is you.

After all the years we been down... ain't no way no how

(Proof)

Its gets lonely at the top cause my homie had to stop
Now we acting like I gotta live only for the block.
And homies in the hood only see me on the tube
So they gossip on the porch
Get ta speaking all rude. fools I used to rap wit all expect magic
Like my finger get to snappin
And poof it just happen.
But proof is just acting out the part he was thrown,
Shady made it so my babies ain't starving at home.
See the devil in your glance,
Since the ghetto we been friends, forever real intellegence,
That's forever till the end.
I peep the hatred in your eyes, and the Satan in your lies,
Ain't wasting my time with these snakes in disguise.
(HOW COME) When you talk it's with bitter and spite?
(AND HOW COME) It's my fault for what you did with your life?
And every time I go to hear you play, you look away,
We barely embrace, you can't even look me in my face.

After all the years we been down... ain't no way no how
