Damian Marley & Nas - Friends

These later days in Babylon as I watch your children grow
And the years them carry on and I miss you even more
Still I send them go to school and tell them what dem fi know
All of mi friend dem mi salute Daddi gone and Lenny Screw
Another year has come and past, man, a drop like morning dew
Uncle Warrick sick and gone when him couldn't catch a flu
Picka T you a mi don, respect long and overdue
When nothing never did a gwan, you still have on somethin' new
Our friendship ever last, all when one minus from few
Yes, we surely had a blast, we're like family, me and you
A nuh every path you cross, lead to somebody who true
Of the many that are called, only chosen is a few

Of the real friends that serve you long
Your memories might fade
Your real friends will serve you long
Sunshine or rain

Your real friends will serve you long
Acquaintances will fade
Your real friends won't do you wrong
Real friend don't change

Only talking with winners, a looser or two
Got my number, still they think they real
But they just really awfully bitter
Salty niggaz, hate the smarter ones
These are the doubters who's our 'bout my run
I barely made it out the slums, my value high
'Cause I do more than rap about a gun
I made money for niggaz, ya'll never looking out for none
I helped millionaires get to that very position
Some real millionaires see that still 'cause look at statistics
Real millionaires and I ain't talking ghetto riches, thorough business
You mistreating niggaz, heard your folks bleed in prison
You ain't a G and if you was, I don't recall
Who would roll with y'all? Bunch a fucking know it alls
Who's dough is small
Look what's it come to our rapport's good no more
We was good before till I saw what type a dude you took me for
We had a chance to take paper down what I took was more
Because of hatred, opportunity wasted

Your real friends will serve you long
Your car and clothes will fade
Your real friend won't do you wrong
Real friend don't change

Your real friend won't run in war, nuh care what the cost is
You real friends are in for all, the wins and the losses
Fi real, no question at all, them ready fi rising the tallest
Take to the enemies, all for one and one for all this

Real friend will hear you out, no secret feelings
Real friends won't sell you out, no bargain pleading
For real, always looking out a meal
When outside a drought, your real friend won't hide you out, no

Your real friends will serve you long
When all else fails
Your real friend won't do you wrong
Real friend don't change

May laughter from backstabbers turn to tears faster
I wish for you no snake shall slither past ya, you have to
Keep your vision clear 'cause only a coward lives in fear
My surroundings, got only real powerful niggaz here
Real men, we have a code of ethics
No question, no jealousies, no feminine tendencies
We expecting no gossip, no phony logic
No counting your homey pocket
Spare no expense for legal defense
If your homey locked up
No keeping tabs on who was the last who looked out
Selfishness that's a character flaw no holding out
Yo, what happened to the honour?
You're dealing with sensitive
Pre-Madonna drama, teflon love
For my dudes who solid

Your real friends will serve you long
Your memories might fade
Your real friends will serve you long
Sunshine or rain

Your real friends will serve you long, woe ya woe
When all else fails
Your real friends won't do you wrong
Real friend don't change

Real friend don't change
Real friend don't change
Real friend don't change
Real friend don't change
