Open Mic Wk # 138 Unofficial Judge's Entry: "We're All That We Have" (Original Song)

in openmic •  last month 


I recommend headphones for this one, full lyrics are provided below so you can read or rap along. I appreciate you all for listening and reading my lyrics.


Legendary Hip Hop Producer: Pete Rock
Beat: Kool Jazz

Song Title: "We're All That We Have"

@Verbal-D
Chorus:
We're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
Yes, we're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
And if we don't give, while we can now give, the chance that we have will escape
And the Love you don't love, can't reach who you love, no telling who's passing away...

@Verbal-D
Verse 1:
Yo, we are never promised here tomorrow, 'cause time is borrowed
Know that Death is always 'round the corner, a coming Sorrow
Many of us struggle tryna come up, a heavy cargo
If I had the money that you needed, then I would borrow

Hate to see my people in a struggle, paycheck to paycheck
Shed some light upon their darkest clouds, instead of rainchecks
'Cause I wanna help while I'm alive, am I a Dreamer?
'Cause I see a better vision, vibe, know how to treat ya

'Cause the evil in this world is greed
It's more than money, more than power, more than what you see
But we gotta fight back for the land that all our children need
Spiritual roots will ground us firmly as we're planting seeds

It all depends upons the Love that me and you can feed
So watch your actions, thoughts and words, and how the way you speak
'Cause we could really hurt each other with our selfish deeds
So be somebody's oxygen so you can help 'em breathe...

@Verbal-D
Chorus:
We're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
Yes, we're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
And if we don't give, while we can now give, the chance that we have will escape
And the Love you don't love, can't reach who you love, no telling who's passing away...

@Verbal-D
Verse 2:
Not everybody gets a second chance
High School Prom Rejection, it's like asking for the dance
The pushback and the hurt can leave you dazed into a trance
So when I say to love somebody, don't just think Romance

That even applies to the people sleeping on the road
Or the people you are passing, you can clearly see them cold
Our bodies are just vessels that contain a precious soul
The Future are the Youth, but don't forget about the Old

Use your ears to listen to the wisdom that is told
It takes a special courage sharing visions that are bold
It takes a certain humbleness to say that you don't know
That's why we have to share so that together we can grow

Too many people hurting, I just want to hug and hold
Who feel they have no value, but their life is being sold
Their presence, rare and priceless, like a diamond trapped in gold
Just gotta give 'em Love before they go, that's how it goes...

@Verbal-D
Chorus:
We're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
Yes, we're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
And if we don't give, while we can now give, the chance that we have will escape
And the Love you don't love, can't reach Who You Love, no telling who's passing away...

@Verbal-D
Transition:
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...yeah
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... yeah...
Oh no, oh no oh no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

@Verbal-D
Repeat 1st Quatrain
We are never promised here tomorrow, 'cause time is borrowed
Know that Death is always 'round the corner, a coming Sorrow
Many of us struggle tryna come up, a heavy cargo
If I had the money that you needed, then I would borrow, I would borrow, I would borrow...

@Verbal-D
Outro Chorus:
We're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
Yes, we're all that we have, all that we have, all that we have today
And if we don't give, while we can now give, the chance that we have will escape
And the Love you don't love, can't reach Who You Love, no telling who's passing away...

Thank you very much my friend @danieldedosd2. I hope you enjoyed this song. Thank you for listening, That is funny that you do not know that I do music. I started as a contestant/entrant for the Open Mic Contest, and then eventually around the 42nd week or 43rd week of the contest. I became an official Judge and have enjoyed the journey ever since.

Have you ever seen this (Information Below) in my Open Mic Judge's Top 5 Post? I always include it at the bottom of my Judging Post.
This is the original song I made for Steemit.com and this is the song that inspired @luzcypher to create this awesome Open Mic Contest that we are all apart of today.

Apparently a lot of people don't know that I, @Verbal-D, am a Hip Hop Emcee as much as I am a singer/songwriter/beat producer, so I will continue to showcase from now on the song that inspired @Luzcypher to create the Open Mic Contest that we are all apart of today. I hope it inspires you to write original music.

Hermanito, Fantastico. Yo ingeso a steemit hace un año para abríl y creo que ya eras juez, Te cuento que sin la música no tengo piernas para caminar y el aire poco aire me consume y no puedo respirar. Mi consejo para mis amigos múscos es que no debemos dejar de crear,. En verdad eres bastante bueno hermano. El mayor de los éxitos para ti.

Sigue creando hemano pienso que grandes cosas vendrán para esta plataforma si prevalece la honestidad por encima de todo lo demás.

Gracias hermano mayor,
Aprecio sus sabias palabras y apoyo. Sí, estoy de acuerdo, debemos seguir creando a toda costa y en cualquier situación en la que nos encontremos. No puedo existir sin la música. Una de las citas de mi vida es, Conozca la música, Conóceme. No hay música, no yo.

Sí, grandes cosas nos esperan a todos, si disminuimos en honestidad y nuestro verdadero propósito con las intenciones justas de triunfar y hacer las cosas a través del amor que Dios nos ha inculcado y colocado. Depende de nosotros abrazar eso y compartirlo de manera efectiva.


Thank you big brother,
I appreciate your wise words and support. Yes I agree, we must keep creating at all costs and in any situation we find ourselves in. I cannot exist without music. One of my life quotes is, Know music, know me. No music, no me.

Yes, great things await all of us, if we subside in honesty and our true purpose with the righteous intentions to succeed and do things through love that God has instilled and placed in us. It is up to us to embrace that and share it effectively.

Guaoooo I began to sing hahahaha, I loved this was great, in the choirs I started to make other voices in the tango that is not very good and it sounds finoo, hehe, someday I sing with you. Success and may God bless you.

·

Oh this comment makes me very happy, thank you for your sweet words. Yes one day we all sing together and make life changing music. God bless you too with many successes and health

A great song, my friend. Congratulations!!!

·

Thank you very much my friend, I appreciate your nice comment and you listening.

You really sound it.. I dont know how else to put it. You really sound the part. A lot of rappers cant really sell it.. You dont believe them. This is very different. :)
Awesome!

·

Thank you very much my friend, I can't wait to get you on that track. It is going to be so fresh when we map it out. It it on my to do list cause I gotta get the sound quality that I hear put out, this video is just to share the idea. I have always been that way. Create an idea, share it immediately, just in case, cause you never know what will happen and if I never got to share it...then I revisit it and bring it out professionally. I also don't enjoy music that I cannot feel or believe, and my conviction in my music is strong because I am speaking how I really feel and think and I just love the effect it has on people. Thank you for all your amazing words. Really boosts me forward. :)

hello @ verlbal-d I hope you are well, just now I saw the section of answers on my blog. really this song is full of reflective content, everything you thought and reflected in your song is simply amazing. You are right to say that sometimes we realize the love when we are losing (this is very painful). This letter makes me think of the inner struggle when my emotions are against, really the words can not be erased and we are able to destroy any person. It makes me remember what he said once:

Mahatma Gandhi,
"Take care of your thoughts, because they become your words. Watch your words, because they will become your acts. Take care of your actions, because they will become your habits. Take care of your habits, because they become your destiny ".

I believe that the essence is in what we think, then from there the sense of things, that is: how we see the world.
I love the detailed form of the lyrics, it is very realistic without losing the ideal of a world that is more full of conscious people (but it must be an individual decision). You still see the beauty of people despite everything that is weak and selfish. we can get to do. This rhythm is very good for this message.

I think you got a lot out of rap. I admire the people who sing this musical genre because they are able to say so much in such a short time,Personally I can not sing this guy, I look like a baby (babbling) I can only say the last frace LOL

I hope you keep sharing this deep messages ... After a month of intensive work I think I'll be at the open mic this week!
Regards! I appreciate you! :)
