Gun shots in the air 
i ain't scared  for my life
Its my new life
Cause i gotta give my son she best 
Im a strong bitch 
College i couldn't do it
So i left lleft left  right left
I fell in line 
salute me
Ima different kind 
Couldn't let that man be the down 
fall of me 
Im a strong  bitch  you can't break 
Told me i gotta do better 
Is it my dream
Hell no but that's life
And you livin trife 
I still got your back
Got your Freedom in my nap sack
A pull away from puttin a cap in that 
Remember the days 
When it was just you with a burner 
couldn't pay me to murder 
Im far from the same 
While  im gone send your son a 
Kiss him and tell him ima be right 

Gun shots in the air 
Baby its war over here 
Baby its hell over here 
worst than when you had me in tears
I swear those were the best years
I got new scars war wounds 
Couple of nights i prayed you was 
holding me tight in
Shit that  was a war  zone too
Damn gun shots in the air
Make me think of you
When you left left left 
Since you left i ain't been right since 
that last tear i cried

If i dont come back  alive 
wipe my babys eyes 
Gun shots in the air took my life
