      About "The Message"

      Lyrics for Dr. Dre - "The Message"

      This one is for my brother, Tyree, R.I.P
      A message to God

      Since you finishin em early, what posessed you to start him?
      We made a vow later we'll regret til death do us part
      Lord, I thought we was made for each other
      You shouldn't connect those, made to be taken away from each other
      Now what I'm supposed to do? I'm only half the man that I was
      I'll never last, cause my better half is up there with you
      You knew what you was doin when you made us; so with all due respect
      You coulda forgave him, you didn't have to take him
      He can take the game with him, cause he defines the word
      The one who puts the G in it, who you think put me in it?
      I'm feelin like my whole world is blinded wonderin why
      Cryin, pourin out my heart, pourin out liquor behind it
      We fought like brothers, somethin we never should do
      We coulda used time spent arguin tellin the truth
      He had talent too I had plans on watchin him grow
      Don't know what hurts more - seein him leave, or watchin him go

      If you wanna know why {why I live my life}
      The way that I do {cause I got to get this money}
      So don't worry about me {cause I know my way around}
      I'm just hustlin everyday, runnin this race, makin this paper

      Youse a soldier, you're probably packin heat up there
      Met up with homies from the street, and got deep up there
      If you only knew the way I felt before they ruined the crew
      I thought I learned from Eazy, now I'm goin through it with you
      We lost a thug, a son, and a father
      I spoke to your son, the other day, and told him Uncle Dre got him
      The Lord must be accidentally pulling your file
      Cause I'm still paging you, 911, straight in denial
      Prayin you get it, but no man can choose the card he was dealt
      You either quit, or you gon' play it like you get it
      I done been through all emotions, from in shock, to keepin a poker face
      To straight breakin down and showin all emotions
      I'm anxious to believe in real G's don't cry
      If that's the truth, then I'm realizin I ain't no gangsta
      It's just not me, but you know I'mma always ride wit you
      I miss you, sometimes I wish I just died wit you

      Brother brother
