R.I.P. Warren G


We were listening to Regulate
Both of us were in a fragile state
Paper-thin and you were using then
Every day I thought you’d leave again

But I guess you found a middle ground
Between a lover and an underground
I knew I was just your stepping-stone
I was happy just to jump your bones

We were listening to Regulate
Windows down in your old Chevrolet
Bass that shook us both right out our seats
I was Nate Dogg, you were Warren G

You said you had a thing for DJ Screw
The way he chopped it up just worked on you
Made you have all kinds of naughty thoughts
You slowed it down until he got you off

We were listening to Regulate
I was trying to compensate
For being just a bit too far gone
Flickin' filters on my neighbor’s lawn

I know you hate that sentimental shit
Slurred your words well you were way too ripped
Always tryin' hard to act so tough
Tellin’ me how you had liked it rough

We were listening to Regulate
Before you turned it down and touched my face
And told me that I had your brother's eyes
Last time you saw him you had watched him die

You said you never really knew him well
Time has taught you that this world is hell
I hit the buttons, brought our car seats down
And held you tight until the sun came out

We were still listening to Regulate

We were listening to Regulate
