Used to Be
by Emcee N.I.C.E., Michelle-Lee

Album: Iron Dove - The Prequel


Intro - CHORUS
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward (my life my life my life my life)
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward (my life my life my life my life)

Verse ONE - Emcee N.I.C.E.
When I was a young rook, in the grooves of the book
pondering views with clues in Hebrews that shed light when I look
the Flame was in clear sight before my mic was real
that's when I would fight the feel as my mind was still but designed to thrill
yeah, that one bedroom in Chuco, moms on the hustle
race war at the school, minds off the muzzle
I was the older brother with two sisters and another brother
from another mother but I was big brother
I was 7 when I discovered Christ, unaware of the full picture
before I understood scripture was the way and the light,
before influencers peddled skepticism
that wrecked my system with luciforic precision and I was scared to fight
you hear what's right, but it was too much to believe
you hear the plight, yeah, but it was too much to receive
and yet everyday with his love I grew,
the only leader in the house was my mama who's love was true
and the more I pondered my mind wandered to the what if's and maybe's
did I squander or fail to conquer the fear that leave you daisy
run, run that's all I did was run, run
barefooted in the sun, sun
until I realized I had sandals
and the force of throne, guarding my home from the vultures & the vandals
moms throwing down in the kitchen everybody smiling
dominoes and spades everybody wildin' the days

Chorus
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward (my life my life my life my life)
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward (my life my life my life my life)

Verse TWO
Wouldn't it be nice to walk down memory lane
wouldn't it be nice so nice (ohh)
Wouldn't it be nice to walk down memory lane
wouldn't it be nice so nice (ohh)

The corners of my mind bring memories
Pig tails barrettes and beads
Swinging in the breeze
To the store on the corners where I'd be
The only thing on my mind is how I'm spending $3.25 how many sugar straws I can buy
No cares in the world
See what's in store for this little girl

Now I see why You kept me
Her story's told and flows with plenty
Of mighty grace you gave so greatly
Didn't have to do it but you did
Had a purpose on my life tatted big
Now that's permanent
Told me to walk in it
Cause I'm free in you
And i'ma roll wit it
See back in the day I used to live for me so stuck in my ways but nowadays I live for you and give you all of me

Chorus
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward
I just wanna go back to the way
and things that used to be
but I gotta move forward
I gotta move forward
