lyrics

VERSE 1
Keep the car running baby, I'll be back
you're the type I can trust to have my back
a ride or die, thought they only existed in rap lyrics
but we are what they call kindred spirits
the type to take the stand in a case and lie for me
no matter what the charge was, and if I was really guilty
cause you know I'd do the same no matter what the degree
no ones in possession of our vaults key
if I got locked away to do everything to set me free
the type to feel the same whether or not I got on one knee
to talk it out if we're having trouble, not to your girls
prefer a hug over some diamonds or pearls
to be my best friend, not just my lady
to keep what we do private, my perfect baby
with you I feel I've only ever grew
if I was inside robbing, I could trust you to...

CHORUS
Keep the car running and turn the lights off
keep the car running and turn the lights off
keep the car running and turn the lights off
cause I'll be back baby, I'll be back
x2

VERSE 2
Keep the car running baby, I'll be back
the kind of women who, can handle a mack
steer on a dirt track, trust in an attack
open and take a thick one all the way back
the perfect duo, Pippen and Jordan
Yorke and Cole, water with Gordon
I would, die, for, you
and I know you'd die me too
but I wouldn't let you go, that's the truth
I wouldn't tell them your name even if they pulled a tooth
and threatened to pull more, water boarded too
limbs cut off, hole in the head from a phillips screw
lips sealed, tony, chainsaw, r.i.p. Angell
never speak a bad word, no one could ever compel
And I know you'd come, a Manny, and Chi Chi like coup
if I was inside robbing, I could trust you to...

CHORUS

VERSE 3
Keep the car running baby, I'll be back
if shit goes down, I'll cop the flack
if it meant dying instead of you getting a day
I'd stand against the wall and come what may
sit in that chair, my final words for you
before the poison is fatally injected through
while I'm on that gallow waiting for the death by suspension
waiting for those stones to be hurled for my dissension
in the chamber waiting for the valve to be turned
as long as you were alive I wouldn't be concerned
my last words would be, thanks for spending time with me
one of a kind, who would ride shotgun in a shooting spree
your loyalty and guts, I will take with me
probably going to a place where I'll be wishing for an A.C.
my heroine, the devotion I have is endless to you
if I was inside robbing, I could trust you to...

CHORUS

about

Joe March Australia

I'm passionate about music and have been making it for a minute. I mainly create conscious hip hop where I can vent by putting my opinions down on 'wax'. Many other songs are tracks about the fairer sex.
