Lyrics

(Kanye West)
And I heard 'em say
nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
From the Chi, Like Tim, it's a Hardaway
till this is in the name of love, like robert say
Before you ask me to go get a job today,
can I at least get a raise on the minimum wage?
And I know the government administer aids,
So I guess we just pray like the minister say
Abu Akhbar be throwin' some hot cars
things we seein' on the screen not ours
but these niggas from the hood, so these dreams not far
where I'm from the dope boys is the rock stars
but they can't cop cars without seein' cop cars
I guess they want us all behind bars, I know it, uh

Chorus:
And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
But we'll find a way
(Adam Levine)
And nothin' lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way

(Kanye West)
They say people in your life for seasons
And anything that happen is for a reason
And niggas gun-clappin' and keep to squeezin'
And gran' keep prayin' and keep believin'
In Jesus, and one day that she'll see him
Till then in walk his footsteps and try to be him,
The devil is alive, I feel him breathin'
Claimin' money is the key, so keep on dreamin'
And put them lottery tickets just to tease us
My Aunt Pam can't put them cigarettes down,
So now my lil' cousin smokin' them cigarettes now
His job try to claim that he too niggerish now
Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now?
I can't figure it out, sick of it now,

Chorus:
And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
And I heard 'em say, nothin's ever promised tomorrow today
But we'll find a way
(Adam Levine)
And nothin' lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way

(Adam Levine)
With every worthless word we get more far away
And nothin's ever promised tomorrow, today
And nothin lasts forever, but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way

    Wouldn't go as far as to say that this is the best song ever or anything, but yes: The song is great. Definitely in my top 25. The song is catchy, Levine's voice fits the beat perfectly. I know a lot of people who hate this song because of the message, but in reality, there is nothing bad about it. The song is near flawless.

    THIS SONG IS BEING ADDRESSED TOWARDS EVERYONE. IT IS ABOUT EVERYDAY PROBLEMS THAT WE FACE IN OUR LIVES LIKE RELATIONSHIPS, BROKEN HEARTS, MONEY, DISCRIMINATION, TOBACCO USE, ETC. THE MUSIC IS VERY MELLOW THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SONG. THE BEGINNING MAKES YOU FEEL A LITTLE SAD AND THEN THE ENDING MAKES YOU THINK ABOUT LIFE. THIS IS THE TYPE OF SONG THAT YOU LISTEN TO IF YOU ARE STRESSED OUT. IT MAKES YOU FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING AND IT PUTS YOU IN A CALM, RELAXING MOOD.
