Take Me To Paradise

by Jay Stilla

[Intro: Jay Stilla *Spoken Word*Poem]
*Pray that God see my heart
Like my chest made of glass
I pray
I pray for answers to the questions I never asked
I know Temporary Pleasures Those Treasures Never Last
All the women and the cash that Ain't forever
Never, but I
Still keep my heart on the future
But my mind Stay off the past
It's a race, The human race
I got to finish first never last
At last, at last I*

[Rap Verse 1: Jay Stilla]
I Been up three days, No time to put that sleep in
The only time my eyes close Is slowly when they blinking
I tried to drown my sorrows for tomorrow With that drinking
But that drinking had me sinking So I rose up out that deep end
And I"m,,, gone Keep moving on no looking back for it!
I keep my past like my past I don't basque on it
I guess I'm shooting for the future I'm a smash forward
And If I miss I'm off the back board
They wonder what I passionately laugh for
Maybe cause I'm getting what I ask for
I'm separate from you 'Nigga's like the last four
Digits of my phone number and 'Nigga this the last call!
Calling for you 'Niggas if you sipping on that alcohol
I don't even drink no more too worried about the law
Waiting for probation to pull up and pull me out the car
Then Search through my possessions and violate me for Tylenol...

**[Hook: Jay Stilla]** (*Melodic Singing*)
*This ain't life, This ain't living, This ain't living!
This ain't life Take me to Paradise, Take me to Paradise
I pray that I'm forgiven
I pray that I'm forgiven
I just pray that I'm forgiven
I pray that I'm forgiven
This ain't life*

**[Rap Verse 2: Jay Stilla]**
Questions resting on my head like an antler
I just know I'm S.T.I.L.L.A and what that stand for?
Surviving til I learn life's answer
And that's like trying to find a cure for cancer
Its so hard, I know it's so hard!
My close friend keeps telling me "Im going so hard"
My family keeps saying that I need to take a long break
But I keep working hard because I know destiny ain't gonna wait
Hold up, I need to hold up! I see my glass over flowing but I'm grabbing more Cups
It's no rush, I'm saying its no rush but my Life moving fast like 'Evora Lotus
And Trust no woman or no man especially in a romance
Only God can judge me i know god he Loves me
So I'm down on both knees and both hands
Forgive all these sins that I'm making I'm praying
And thank you for being so patient and waiting
I"m part of your plan, All that Saying's my hearts in your hands

**[Hook: Jay Stilla]** (*Melodic Singing*)
This ain't life, This ain't living, This ain't living!
This ain't life Take me to Paradise, Take me to Paradise
I pray that I'm forgiven
I pray that I'm forgiven
I just pray that I'm forgiven
I pray that I'm forgiven
This ain't life
