Crew54 – For the Love (feat. D-Wattz)

Chorus: D-Wattz

Sitting there, pen and pad
Spitting raps, drowning tears, wishing that
I can help to make a change some day
Hoping that they play the words I say
Now I’m getting there, looking back
Never ever getting where I started at
After all these years and the moves I’ve made
Still do it for the love, still I ain’t got paid

Verse One: D-Wattz

Eight years and counting, choke my pen in the cold
I wept and dreamt on her shoulder, never slept when I hold her
Felt the warmth through my storms, never caved on her, soldier
Now she’s flaming but I couldn’t be broker
Sitting here, old, lonely, burnt pen and a forty
Throw my lighter to the fire, hit her, pass to my homies
Straight sex or glory, write a story and roll
Respect her prose, let her go, watch her come back roaring
Hoping hand slaps turn in to hand claps
To give birth to chapters, speaking volumes of rap
No bastards, all classics, baby, steps been had
Between dad and love and where the orphanage at
Between first picking her up for a benz and a deal
To growing beards, shooting blanks. jaded, until
I stop to listen to her voice just for something to feel
Half empty bottles, sobs, swallows
Pick her back up tomorrow, for real, I’m still

Chorus: D-Wattz

Sitting there, pen and pad
Spitting raps, drowning tears, wishing that
I can help to make a change some day
Hoping that they play the words I say
Now I’m getting there, looking back
Never ever getting where I started at
After all these years and the moves I’ve made
Still do it for the love, still I ain’t got paid

Verse Two: G-Christ

I do it all for the love
Twenty-four seven and I ain’t got paid
As I look back at all the verses
All the hooks and ideas of songs I’ve made
Dealing with shows when the only audience is friends
Dealing with hoes that’s close cause they think you making ends
And this is what I asked ’em for
But a chance to emcee, I couldn’t ask for more
Midweek nights, knowing that I gotta go to work
Fuck it, I’m still head heaving though I’mma be hurt
Constantly, looking for inspiring prose
Yelling and screaming, trying to get the fire out my throat
But I’m in it for the long haul
And if you trying to break my spirit than you fucking with the wrong dog
My feel for the game is too strong
Negative vibes, they just get dropped as I move on

Chorus: D-Wattz

Sitting there, pen and pad
Spitting raps, drowning tears, wishing that
I can help to make a change some day
Hoping that they play the words I say
Now I’m getting there, looking back
Never ever getting where I started at
After all these years and the moves I’ve made
Still do it for the love, still I ain’t got paid

Verse Three: M.O.S.

The words I write stain the paper like a trail of tears
But I’m aware, even if at first I fail for years
At the show trying to please an angry faceless mob
Sometimes working mics is such a thankless job
There’s no overtime pay or a holiday rate
And where I lay’s the most overlooked place in the state
But yet and still, I don’t do it for an hourly wage
I do it for the freedom I get from rocking the stage
Lost in disgrace, I went from kicking rhymes on the curb
To blessing y’all with the hottest spits that y’all never heard
It’s absurd the amount of love I have for the craft
And I’m going to do it ’til I’m in the coffin, flat on my back
Driving hours out of town for a ten minute set
In the game as a rookie with the skill of a vet
Cause I love the mic and love fans who show me respect
And I love the ones that love me but just don’t know it yet
I’m still

Chorus: D-Wattz

Sitting there, pen and pad
Spitting raps, drowning tears, wishing that
I can help to make a change some day
Hoping that they play the words I say
Now I’m getting there, looking back
Never ever getting where I started at
After all these years and the moves I’ve made
Still do it for the love, still I ain’t got paid (repeat)
