My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

All of the Madness in My Head

I can’t be the only one who lays awake at night reminiscing about the happiest times in my life, or even the times when things were tough that have contributed to the woman I’ve become. In fact, I know others go through those late nights when they’ve replayed in their heads the madness they’ve experienced in their youth or even that they’re experiencing presently.

After hearing this song a few times on the radio, I found the hook to be hauntingly lovable. So much so, that I took to playing it on my ukulele. I often do that when a song is stuck in my head or if I find myself humming it out of the blue. There’s a lot of madness that occurs in my mind. I don’t know if “madness” is even the right word to use, but today, after a few consecutive nights of laying in bed wide awake playing Words With Friends and texting all while listening to this one song, I figured I’d blog about it. Why not?

In the last few days, I’ve been thinking about my college days and the many people with whom I’ve lost touch. I’ve kind of always been a loner or as I’ve been known to call it in the past: “a floater”. A lot of people knew/know me, knew/know of me and felt I was a “friend”. However, I considered most people from my past more of an “acquaintance” than a “friend”. In high school, I never hung out or ate lunch with the same group of friends. I relate that behavior a lot to my military background. As a military brat, I grew accustomed to being in a town for a year or two and then leaving, never really allowing myself to befriend anyone because I knew I was going to be leaving for another town down the road. One day I’d eat lunch with my teammates on the basketball team as well as their friends who were also on other athletic teams (known to society as the “jocks”). Another day, I’d hang out with my teammates on the track team that were an eclectic group of people (known to society as “goths” and “tree huggers”). And then on some days, I’d break bread with my actual family or even people I’ve had a class or two with. It wasn’t until college that I begun building better friendships. But even then, I struggled with staying around. Each of my friends have brought up the stage of my life when I went “MIA”. And each of those friends are currently people I consider to be my best friends (with the recently added friend that I’m re-introducing myself to).

I’ve learned that just as each of those friends were and are now of significance to my life, I had somewhat of an impact on their lives. They cared enough to ask “What happened? Why’d you disappear?”. I cared enough to humble myself and apologized to each of them individually. Just as they weren’t too far from my thoughts, I wasn’t too far from theirs apparently.

How have you become a better friend now than when you were in high school or college? What current friendships do you cherish and why? What friendships did you have to learn to let go to move on in life?

Until next post,


T.I. – Memories Back Then Lyrics (Feat. Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B & Kris Stephens)

In my apartment a long time ago,
I knew a bad bitch but she was kinda slow
Still gave it up when there’s a few of us
She let me finger fuck her on the school bus
We use to cut school with her and run trains
She wanna hang with us we want one thang
Just penetrating that throat dog
She choke on it like smoke dog
But whenever I fuck her my re-up
In a dice game i go see her
She give me enough to buy a quarter ounce
And blow a blunt of that reefer
She use to buy a nigga new sneakers
Pay the bill on my beeper
Just she can page me for the 69
And I know what time to go freak her
Then one day I just ask her
Why you always giving ass out
I mean damn even hoes get paid all you do is get laid
This shit don’t add up
She said Tip all I wanna do is feel is loved
Even if I know it ain’t real love
Even if I know a nigga only finna hit it
Then never call back I still fuck
And that fucked up cuz she so trill
I need some she go steal
When the trap hot and police ride
Nigga guess where we go chill
Bout 4 years she held down
My 4 pound till it go down
I remember shorty she stay down
I won’t say her name cuz she married now

When the lights go out and I’m in my bed
I think of all the madness in my head
All of the things that I did back then
Oh when I’m in my bed
I think of all the memories I’ve had
All of the things that I did back then

She would always turn heads so she fall through
She would always make moves how a boss do
And she never gave any nigga the time of day
She the chick all the niggas trying to talk to
But when it came to me she had a thing for me
When we kick it she roll up the weed for me
And we both cut class post up in the cut steady
Just to watch and just to see if the police coming
We got close over time her and I
Right around the time that I first got signed
Come to think about it I was bout 17
I ain’t even have license couldn’t even drive
I was going back and forth with each flight
Another show after show each night
She started getting so suspicious of other bitches
She go through my phone and we fight
Talking bout time between the two
Wasn’t really much more that we could do
Wasn’t really much space for us she stay down
Every tour she see me do
But I guess one night I had a few huh
One night I had a few right
This little chick that caught my eye
I told her hurry up meet me at the room
And no I didn’t have a contraceptive
With my common sense neglected
Two months later next thing I know
I get a text that say I’m pregnant
And you can almost bet she kept it
And that’s the reason that you left me
On the top of all that wasn’t even mine
I went and got paternity tested damn

When the lights go out and I’m in my bed
I think of all the madness in my head
All of the things that I did back then
Oh when I’m in my bed
I think of all the memories I’ve had
All of the things that I did back then

Wait hold up is that you
With them big old thighs after school
J305 and gave me high five when I say I’m in high pursuit
You say I won’t ride till Kendrick drive
A new Monte carlo that cruise
And that shot my pride try to improv
But no freestyle I never knew
You looking for the nigga with the tallest fetti
You over looking at every nigga that ain’t quite ready
To make it rain on you like you bout to break a levy
Hold up, that pussy petty
Yeah your nails did your hair did
Your cell phone is selfish
It only got numbers that come with a hummer
A new pre Madonna I smelt it
Tried to make you my ho
Tried to make some time ho
But I ain’t got the time or the patience to stop and wait in line ho
Her dreams holds Versace she fall for Armani
Only deal with rich niggas
Fuck you and Mitt Romney
I’m grown now I’m on my own now
I’m pop pop popping change my phone now
When I get home now I got op op options
Fast forward wait is that you
With them big old thighs after school
And yo 3 kids and 3 baby daddies and same car note that’s overdue
I know

When the lights go out and I’m in my bed
I think of all the madness in my head
All of the things that I did back then
Oh when I’m in my bed
I think of all the memories I’ve had
All of the things that I did back then
