When Thugz Cry Lyrics - 2Pac

Review The Song (3)

[Tupac speaking]
When thugs cry..
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my guns to keep
If I die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
God, when thugs cry, too much is hard

Born thuggin and lovin the way I came up
Big money clutchin, bustin while evadin cocaine busts
My pulse rushin, semi clutching into insanity
They Shot at my cousin now we bustin at they whole family
The coppers wanna see me worried, I ain't worried
I got a line on the D.A. cause I'm fuckin his secretary
I black out and start cussin, bust 'em and touch 'em all
They panic and bitches duckin, I rush 'em and fuck 'em all
I'll probably be an old man before I understand
why I had to live my life with pistols close at hand
Kidnapped my homey's sister, cut her face up bad
They even raped so we blazed they pad
Automatic shots rang out, on every block
They puttin hits out on politicians, even cops, I ain't lyin
They got me sleepin with my infra-red beams
And in my dreams
I hear motherfuckers screamin
What is the meaning, when thugs cry?

Oh why, should you send your child off to die
In the streets of chalk where they lie
Let no rocks cry out when thugs cry
Dear God,
Oh why, does it have to be this way, our
children of today won't stay wise
Let the children hear when thugs cry
Dear God, oh why.

Heh.. maybe my addiction to friction got me buggin
Where is the love? Never quit my ambition to thug
Ain't shed a tear since the old school years of elementary
Niggaz I used to love, enclosed in penitentiaries
But still homey keep it real, how does it feel
to lose your life, over somethin that you did as a kid?
You all alone, no communication, block on the phone
Don't get along with yo' pop, and plus your moms is gone
Where did we go wrong? I put my soul in the song
to help us grow at times, but now our minds are gone
We went from brothers and sisters, to niggaz and bitches
We went from welfare livin, to worldwide riches
But somethin changed in this very game, everything's strange
Lost all my homies over cocaine.. mane
See they ask me if I shed a tear, I ain't lie
See you gotta get high or die, cause even thugs cry


And all I see is these paranoid bitches, illegal adventures
Bustin motherfuckers with uppercuts, I leave 'em with dentures
Cause in my criminal mind, nobody violates the Don
I write your name on a piece of paper, now your family's gone
Why perpetrate like you can handle my team?
So merciless in my attack i take command of your dreams
Leavin motherfuckers drownin in they own blood
Clownin takin pictures later
Laugh bout the punk bitches, that turned snitches
Regulate my area, the terror I represent
Makin yo' people disappear, you wonderin where they went?
Am I cold or is it just I sold my soul?
Addicted to these streets, never find true peace I'm told
Come take my body God, don't let me suffer any longer
Smoke a pound of marijuana, so I know it ain't long
Where is the end to all my misery, is there a close?
I suppose that's why I murder my foes, when thugs cry

[Bridge][To fade]
when thugs cry...


[2Pac over bridge]
I shed tattooed tears for years
for my dead homeboys and my prison peers
Y'all ain't never heard my cries
Now you wonder why would you die?

Concious Lyrics, no nigga will ever come to pacs poetry, play this track now and compare it to any of the fake niggaz around (no disprespect to NAS,Rakim,KRS..), but pacs is the Greatest Of All Time...

killuminati | Reviewer: killuminati | 3/25/08

this track just goes to show that pac is in a class of his own lryacly its one of his average songz but still krazy lyrics but the thing is how pac is able to rap he is a true poet craps on any rapper i think lyracly after pac it would be biggie and followed up by big l they are in a class of their own but pac craps on them 2 no matter what there will never be a greater rapper most rappers havnt experienced half the thingz pac has gone through did u know biggie smallz the same one who was apperantly a gansta was actually an honour student and also the album ready to die most of the lyracs in those songs were origanaly written by pac

intro: Whis is it that I hear gunshots on almost every corner [young girl scream + several rifle gun shots].

Chorus: I'm not sure (i'm not a native so i don't get it that easily)

First line : not sure. something like: battles cause cash to muliply. then:
motherfuckers die, don't ask why
when thugz cry, we don't shed tears, we shed blood
do you still wanna be a thug?
when thugz cry.
