As Old As I 02:27
higher yet my love, the water is rising up on the counter my love, grab a hold tightly — don’t you let go my dear, I can’t let you die Til your old as I, as old as I, old as I look both ways my dear, don’t trip on your laces But here you lie shot in your sleep by a bullet gone stray you gave me your blessing, to keep you alive til ur old as I, as old as I, as old as I … I’ll take all your baggage, and I’ll give you mine, For the passage of the time, for the distance as old as i, as old as I … as old as I

Down on the courts in Bed Stuy A legend rose from the streets Just a poor kid with no use for what the others called gravity People came from all around to see young connie Hawkins do his thing When the hawk went up against the best at Rucker park oh how the choir would sing High flying kid do you know what you just did Is It just a dream love, is it just a dream love, steady you go Hey pa I think I’m gonna make it, I’m going away on a one way ticket Is it just a dream love, is it just a dream love, steady you go round here those are always sinking, folks will say connie what were you thinking He lead the team in Highschool he never once got beat two years in a row Got a scholarship to Iowa and knew that he had to go he sent a letter home, to his papa, said papa I’m going to the nba But then out of nowhere his name got dropped into a scandal, always someone got to pay I got to got to got to get going now pop, there’s a detective here from the DA He’s telling me they’ll lock me away, if I don’t say what he wants me to saaaaaaaay So to all the kids on the back home lots, I swear it isn’t like they say the investigators pushed me around, and then I was black balled by the nba That playground legend, who could dunk when he was eleven, with super natural abilities, long before MJ before the Doctor. His Dreams were stolen, stomped on and thrown in, never got his day in the sun And now here lies High Flying Hawkins the greatest player that never was So to all the kids on the back home lots, I swear it isn’t like they say the investigators pushed me around, and I was black balled by the nba His Dreams were stolen, stomped on and thrown in, never got his day in the sun And now here lies High Flying Hawkins the greatest player there ever was

Silent Type 04:00
Rode our horses in the pelting rain over the graves of the last war Rooster was on a tare about something he’d seen the night before Then he went quiet, when his horse stopped still in the night I guess every now and then he the silent type From a ramshackle shotgun house we heard a woman just a screaming a name said why’d they take him lord, he hasn’t done a thing But in that moment seemed god slipped out of sight I guess every now and then he the silent type I guess every now and then he the silent type Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall Further up the trail we came to ghastly sight a man hanging from an old oak tree, for looking someone in the eye I asked the governor but he ducked back from the light I guess every now and then he the silent type I guess every now and then he the silent type Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall
