Slide Show

This song is by T.I., features John Legend and appears on the album Paper Trail (2008).

Verse 1 (T.I.)
Hey, when I think about all my time and all my struggles
Through all my grindin' and all my troubles
Man I came up from nothin', all I had was a hustle
With a blindfold tryin' to find pieces to the puzzle, no muzzle
I tell it like it is, that's that, right or wrong, I'mma call it how I see it
Don't forget that impossible is nothin', your environment's irrelevant
Just don't let your emotions overpower your intelligence
Refuse to give up, your mistakes don't define you
They don't dictate where you headin', they remind you
That time keeps tickin', let your mind keep clickin'
Never stop thinkin', be aware of your decisions
And beware of the collisions
And the potholes hidden in the road that you travel on your lifelong mission
Just listen everyday like a snap shot is taken, if you live you could learn to be great, be patient

Chorus (John Legend)
'Cause life is like a slide show
All the places I go
And all the things that I know
Through all the highs and lows
'Cause life is like a slide show
And all the things that I've seen
And all the things that I dream
You can't take away from me
'Cause life is like a slide show

Verse 2 (T.I.)
'Cause when I look back at a fly young cat
Who could rap with a dream, look where I took that
Beginning on bankhead, then I spread out
Vision in my head, all I had to do is get it out
When I walked out of my house, and look at my street
All I see is the opportunity that led me to truancy
I ain't really have a role model to enforce me
Uncle (someone?) they said next its gunna be you in it
As a juvenile count cases so fluently look at my life and learn from it, don't do it
If I only knew back then what I know now, how much better life it would have been if I had slowed down
Maybe I'd have been Kanye, instead of seeing gunplay
But god got a plan, I'll understand one day,
One day of life like a snap shot is taken,
If you believe you could make it, have faith, be patient


Chorus (John Legend)
'Cause life is like a slide show
And all the places I go
And all the things that I know
Through all the highs and lows
'Cause life is like a slide show
And all the things that I've seen
And all the things that I dream
You can't take away from me
'Cause life is like a slide show

Bridge (John Legend)
Looking back on my life time
See the slides go by, trying to wonder why
Looking back on where I've been
I remember when, you remember

Chorus (John Legend)
'Cause life is like a slide show
All the places I go
And all the things that I know
Through all the highs and lows
'Cause life is like a slide show
And all the things that I've seen
And all the things that I dream
You can't take away from me
'Cause life is like a slide show (3x)
I see, I dream, life is like a slide show
