A song about real life, and real growth.. A personal journey to relate to.. Beats are bumpin thanks to Ta-Ku, Sensible J & Dutch, and chorus is resonant thanks to Brave.
Life is justa game and theres many ways to play. All we do is choose.
See we could play this life sort of like it was a game
aint talking side lines watching Michael Jordan do his thing
it's the power of the now, worlds away from Hollywood and watching Austin powers on the couch, its the power of the mouth... and overpowering the mind.... To only think about those things that will define you....
underline you, never undermind you....
when you understand that ya mind is what defines you.
See I was trying to be someone I wasn't....
locked with the demons in my closet...
robbed of my freedom, i can't believe it, something thats as easy as believing in myself was the Jeanie in the bottle.
a novel that's never ending, sort like hobbit with a vengeance
based pon the kindred spirits
you descend from a legend
right their in your face tryna gain your attention life is just a game
but I didn't always know to look at life just like a game
I nearly stayed Paris & I could of holiday'd in Spain
...... caught a train through terrain over to Rome
that beautiful part of the world coulda been home
I could I could have remained there,
making coffee barley made ends meet, but yeah still made sense
and then the day my baby came along
everything changed..... like he wiped away the agent orange
and he taught me...... life was game
See now I'm back in Melbourne, worlds away from the days the when
1200's reined suprmre, but change is welcome.
nelson mandella really said it best
........."never judge a man by successes,
judge a man by the handful of times he was knocked out and fell down
and got back up again" and went 12 rounds,
I went from rocking crowds in the thousands
to being spellbound and locked out of houses
the same house that played me in their lounge rooms
and It's clear I don't need to be counselled-
don't need your couches to give you all a mouthful
arguing till the cows come home wouldn't amount to
.... the truth and way I felt around you
.....cause when I spoke it's like the room was soundproof
I aint tryna change you
I have to change the way I see me and im about to
Life's a Game
