Album:  Watch the Throne
Song:   Why I Love You
Typed by: OHHLA Webmaster DJ Flash

[Chorus 4X: Mr. Hudson]
Ooohh! I love you so
But why I love you, I'll never know

Picture if you will that the throne was burnin, Rome was burnin
And I'm sittin in the corner all alone burnin
Why does it always end up like this?
Something that we don't determine
Same people that I fought for
That I fight for, that I ride for
That I live for, that I die for
be the reason that these niggaz is alive for; and they want me dead
But I'm so sorry but I just can't die for you
But I can make 'em put their hands in the sky for you
We waiting for the fireworks like July 4th
Get fly more, get high more, cry boy, why for?
When the grief is over, beef is over
I'll be fly when Easter's over
I tried to teach niggaz how to be kings
And all they ever wanted to be was soldiers
So the love is gone, 'til blood is drawn
So we no longer wear the same uniform
Fuck you squares, the circle got smaller
The castle got bigger, the walls got taller
And truth be told after all that said
Niggaz still got love for you


[Jay-Z] + (Kanye West)
Showed love to you niggaz
You ripped out my heart and you stepped on it
I picked up the pieces 'fore you swept on it
God damn this shit leaves a mess don't it?
Shit feelin like death don't it
Charge it to the game, whatever's left on it
I spent about a minute, maybe less on it
Fly pelican fly, turn the jets on it
But first I shall digress on it
Wasn't I a good king?
(Maybe too much of a good thing, huh?)
Didn't I spoil you?
Me or the money, what you loyal to?
(Huh, I gave you my loyalty)
Made you royalty, and royalties
(Took care of these niggaz lawyer fees)
And this is how niggaz rewarded me (damn!)


[Jay-Z] + (Kanye West) & {Both}
Bustin at me, b-b-b-bustin at me
But I'm bulletproof, bitch you can't get nothin past me
Got body armor (a nigga gotta watch the throne)
And I'm bustin back, so niggaz in the glass house should not throw stones
What do you do when the love turns tp hate?
(Gotta separate from these fuckin fakes)
Caesar didn't see it so he ceased to exist
So the nigga that killed him had keys to his shit
Am I my brother's keeper? (Only if that nigga don't creep up)
Got a pistol under my pillow (I've never been a deep sleeper)
P-p-p-paranoia (cause the nigga that said he'll)
Blast for ya (is now) blastin for ya
That's an assassin for ya
(These niggaz got a shot they'll shoot)
Please lord (forgive him)
For these niggaz (not know) what they (do)
