MC Lars - Snows Of Kilimanjaro Lyrics




[Adam WarRock:]
These days
I'm livin' life at light speed
Faster than sound I'm gone before this is done
And the lights go down
And if you blink you might miss it
These moments are taking flight to visit
Clouds overcast the sun blocked out
And when it rained it poured
My heart absorbed precipitation
Graduate school at graduation
'Cause what I did for them, I gave them everything
My life was on a different track
Focused on making a name for myself
And I said that I still rap
And I still make the hands clap
Though it's been three years last since Adam done that
And slowly I took the steps to do right by myself
I lost sleep, chances for promotion - fighting myself
Now I sit in green rooms feeling kinda blue
My legs are tired, I'm trying to battle through
Close my eyes and think about where I've been
And where I'm going when sometimes
I sit alone in my room

[Adam WarRock & MC Lars:]
It was all a dream
Life was never what it seemed
I never put it in a song
I never captured the scene
And as I lay here thinking back
On all the stories that passed
All I can do is reminisce on how life's a funny thing

It was all a dream
Life was never what it seemed
I never put it in a song
I never captured the scene
And as I lay here thinking back
On all the stories that passed
All I can do is reminisce on how life's a funny thing

[MC Lars:]
Manhattan snow fell quietly
I held you in my arms
Two Cali kids in Brooklyn
We've both come hella far
The moonlight kissed your eyelids
As I listened to your breath
I dreamt about our future
As the tired city slept
Coffee dates, egg whites
Pancakes, late nights
Sublets, plane flights
Grad school, strange fights
All this constant motion
Would be stable by September
It only took one weekend
For the bond we built to sever
And before you said those words
Everything made sense to me
I was so in love with you
Guess it wasn't meant to be
I never will apologize
For following my heart
For believing in my dreams
Because you knew this from the start
I wrote a letter
And I left it on your pillow
Watched the skyline fade
From outside the taxi window
Tears streamed down my cheeks
Felt the compass in my hand
I left a girl in Brooklyn
'Cause she didn't understand

[Adam WarRock & MC Lars:]
It was all a dream
Life was never what it seemed
I never put it in a song
I never captured the scene
And as I lay here thinking back
On all the stories that passed
All I can do is reminisce on how life's a funny thing

It was all a dream
Life was never what it seemed
I never put it in a song
I never captured the scene
And as I lay here thinking back
On all the stories that passed
All I can do is reminisce on how life's a funny thing

[Adam WarRock:]
I had a five year plan
By the time I reached 3-0
A wife and two kids
A house in the hills and we go
On vacations and soccer games
But now I rock the same venues
That I watched my heroes
Do the same super ego
And people say I write too fast
Just trying to release
The songs I never wrote
Before still inside of me
Plane buzzing by
Come to take me to the summit
That's the last I remember
Before I'm falling asleep

[MC Lars:]
I had a five year plan
Thought I'd make a couple milli
But this industry is heinous
And the competition's silly
So I'm making the transition
To a path that's still uncharted
I'm departing from the scene
But I'm screaming no regrets
I've been to many places
Found some underground success
Just like Ernest Hemingway
Telling stories to the beat
So much more to do and see
Before I finally fall asleep

It was all a dream
Life was never what it seemed
I never put it in a song
I never captured the scene
And as I lay here thinking back
On all the stories that passed
All I can do is reminisce on how life's a funny thing

It was all a dream
Life was never what it seemed
I never put it in a song
I never captured the scene
And as I lay here thinking back
On all the stories that passed
All I can do is reminisce on how life's a funny thing

[Adam WarRock & MC Lars:]
And all I see's the mountain top in front of me
So why do I feel like I'm running place?

When I look down I see my white nikes under me
Snow melting away, snow melting away

And all I see's the mountain top in front of me
So why do I feel like I'm running place?

When I look down I see my white nikes under me
Snow melting away, snow melting away
