So many different names and faces
Coming back to me as I reminisce,
Good times and bad times, some I can't wait to see again some I won't never miss,
But if I had the chance to change it all up yo I wouldn't know where to begin,
Everything is everything,
My mistakes made me so I wouldn't change one little thing

Lend me your ears and i'll tell you a love story from back in the day
Go down memory lane don't wanna name any names,
So let's just say Jack and Jane,
Jack got a name on the local estate jacking cats for packs of the yay,
And Jane's got a habit only a top boy can support five wraps every day

Now Jane's on Jack, Jack gets papes
Jack got the new Merc with the fresh plates
Jane's all amazed, wants some of that
Two weeks later she's living in his flat
But Jacks too ill
Jack loves pills
Jack loves getting drunk til the drink spills
Jack don't never wanna hold down a job
So he's out all night til stupid o clock

Jane's scared he'll get moved by
the cops,
Jack can't see jack shit til shit happens
Maybe he can, he pretends cos he's trapped in
Can't tell him nothing still gonna bring the smack in
Get the cash in any way he can
Smash n grab ain't nothing on the planet that can stop man
Ill gotten gains,
Got it the wrong way
Now he's got enough papes to cop the whole shop fam

Jane knows that's part of the attraction,
Jacks giving her that satisfaction,
She don't mind as long as the blows hi
She's right by his side when it's time for action
And Jack wouldn't let nobody hurt her
More likely somebody's getting murdered
No debating it that's the way he rakes it in
Always up 4 taking it a little bit further

But one day Jack went too far
Blind drunk driving his brand new car
Flipped that whip seven times on the motorway
Died the very same night, left Jane scarred
She went downhill just couldn't cope
Two months later and Jane's flat broke
Three months later and Jane's on the game
Things change cos Jane could've had any bloke
