Rod Wave - Soldier Life Lyrics




(Ace Lex on the beat)
(Thug life, bitch ass)

Didn't ask to be alive, but I'm livin'
Will I die in the streets? Maybe I'll go to prison, yeah
Everybody got a time, I feel it coming
Met death at sixteen, since then I ain't stopped running, I promise
This the life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah
Life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah
Didn't ask to be alive, but I'm livin'
Will I die in the streets? Maybe I'll go to prison, yeah
Everybody got they time, I feel it coming
Met death at sixteen, since then I ain't stopped running, I promise
This the life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah
Life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah

It's hard to maintain this soldier life mentality
It would be a tragedy, them white folks come and hassle me
Throw me down and wrestle me just to put on handcuffs
Try me with resisting when they told me throw my hands up
For tryna get my bands up to feed the fam
They want me nine to five working as a pizza man
Instead I'm nine to five serving, going gram for gram
'Cause 'fore you know it, the bills gonna be due again
They look at us as hooligans but they don't understand the hand that I was dealt
All the dreams that I watched melt, all the pain that I done felt
All the storms that I survived and all the rain that I done felt
Look me in my eyes, you'll see I got no choice but to grind

Didn't ask to be alive, but I'm livin'
Will I die in the streets? Maybe I'll go to prison, yeah
Everybody got a time, I feel it coming
Met death at sixteen, since then I ain't stopped running, I promise
This the life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah
Life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah
Didn't ask to be alive, but I'm livin'
Will I die in the streets? Maybe I'll go to prison, yeah
Everybody got they time, I feel it coming
Met death at sixteen, since then I ain't stopped running, I promise
This the life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah
Life of a soldier
Life of a soldier, yeah, rrah

(Ace Lex on the beat)
Yeah, yeah
