8 Minutes To Sunrise

[Common]

Yeah yo yo yo yo yo yo

Yo a touch of jazz y'all yeah yeah

?? y'all yo they got us on the run like


[Jill Scott]

8 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)

Pressure is mountin

Oh baby now how we gonna get through? (I don't know)

Can't go left (uh uh) can't go right (uh uh)

Don't know how we made it through the night (c'mon c'mon c'mon)

7 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (Do it, do it..)


[Common]

It was once said by Black Thought that +Things Fall Apart+

Knew I shouldn't have been messin with dude's girl from start

But I pimp from the heart, the art of it made it interestin

Plus me and sister blend before we got intimate

Friend or no friend, my man caught wind

This chick is payin me, it'll either cost me or cost him

Told her she shoulda lost him (when?) a while ago

Cause dude'll drink a pile of Mo' and defile her yo

I ain't here to start on this [nigga] for me to wreck his broad

you could tell what I thought of this [nigga]

Nickname was Smoke, don't know if that was cause of cigarettes

(or what?) or guns he tote, he called shots on the deck

so I wasn't tryin to call his bluff, by his persona

you could see, he think he tough!

If that wasn't enough, old girl had his son

This is Wild like the West I'm like Jesse on the run, uhh


[Jill Scott]

6 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I, don't, know)

Pressure is mountin

Oh baby now, how we gon' get through? (I, don't, know)

Can't go left and (uh-uh) can't go right and (uh-uh)

Don't know, how we made it through the night (yo, we got..)

5 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (Do it, do it..)


[Common]

I understand that time is runnin out, I'm thinkin of town-skippin

Got a Chevy but the alternator be trippin

I'm hittin rum straight, thinkin of a route to truncate

The streets is watchin, out is one way I put myself in his Nike's

His position is, Aight man, somebody bonin my lady

Probably snap like Rod-man

My plan was to meet at this bar called the Tiki (when?)

'round four, when she was comin she would beep me

I sat deep in the corner, drinkin zombies, becomin one by now

Wonderin if my style would support her and her child

Out the corner of my eye saw this stud I recognized (who?)

One of Smoke's guys, to stay out of sight I tried


Told Jill Scott to meet we coulda picked a better spot

On some Nobody's Supposed to Be Here [shit] like Deborah Cox

Looked at my watch, [shit] I don't even got a watch

Felt for my glock, damnit I don't even got a glock, yo


[Jill Scott]

4 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)

Pressure is mountin

Oh baby now, how we gon' get through? (I, don't, know)

Can't go left and (uh-uh) can't go right and (uh-uh)

Don't know, how we made it through the night (c'mon c'mon)

3 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (Do it, do it..)


[Common]

Pressure puh-pressure what? The pressure's cookin

It ain't good lookin, like a black promoter I'm talkin bookin

Not that I'm spooked of dude, I could whup him

But he was on the horn informin the rest of them hoodlums (aight)

Usually I wouldn't fight over a woman, old girl had a sun-shine

was messed up, on Smoke's payroll was one-time

My pager went off, it read one line: Come get me

from Halsted, I'm thinkin this is monkey bar [shit]

Went to the phone quick, called her (what happened?) Her line was busy

Situation number nine, got my mind dizzy

Wondered if this plan was designed to get me

I've been drinkin too strong to be thinkin too long

Like 40 goin North I'm doin 50, headed for the spot

Askin God to be with me, and lately

she has been actin shifty -- (but what?)

But then it hit me (hit me) it hit me (hit me)

It hit me (hit me) it hit me


[Jill Scott]

2 minutes to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)

Pressure is mountin

Oh baby now, how we gonna get through? (Yo -- I said I, don't, know)

Can't go left and (uh-uh) can't go right and (nope)

Don't know, how we made it through the night (yo, we got)

1 minute to sunrise

Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (one-one, one.. ha?)

1 minute.. (we got, we got) one, one

1 minute.. (ahh shit, we got) one, one

1 minute.. (what we got girl?) one, one

1 minute.. (baby, Com Sense on the run) now, now

1 minute.. (Com Sense on the run) one..

1 minute.. (just got on the run, just got on the run)

(Com Sense on the run, Com Sense on the run)

(just got on the run, just got on the run)

(they got us on the run like.. they got us on the run)

(they got us on the.. yo, they got us on the run)

(uhh, yo, they got us on the run)

(they got us on the.. yo, they got us on the run)

and we out..)
