Rihanna — Live Your Life lyrics

(Feat. T.I.)

Rihanna:
You're gonna be a shining star,
With fancy clothes, fancy car-ars.
And then you'll see,
You're gonna go far.
Cause everyone knows,
Just who you are-are.
So live your life, ay ay ay.
Instead of chasing that paper.
Just live your life (Oh! ),
Ay ay ay.
You got no time for no haters.
Just live your life (Oh! ),
Ay ay ay.
No telling where it'll take you.
Just live your life (Oh! ),
Ay ay ay.
Cause I'm a paper chaser.
Just living my life.(ay),
My life (oh),
My life (ay),
My life (oh)
Just living my life (ay),
My life (oh),
My life (ay),
My life (oh)

T.I.:
Never mind what haters say, ignore 'em 'til they fade away
Amazing they ungrateful after all the game I gave away
Safe to say I paid the way for you cats to get paid today
You'd still be wasting days away, now had I never saved the day

Consider them my protйgй, homage I think they should pay
Instead of being gracious they violate in a major way
I never been a hater still I love them in a crazy way
Some say they sold ya and no they couldn't even work on Labor day

It ain't that they black or white, their hands in areas the shades of gray
I'm west side anyway, even if I left today and stayed away
Some move away to make a way, not move away 'cause they afraid
I brought back to the hood and all you ever did was take away

I pray for patience but they make me want to melt their face away
Like I once made them spray, now I could make 'em put the K's away
Been thugging all my life, can't say I don't deserve to take a break
You would rather see me catch a case and watch my future fade away

So live your life, ay ay ay.
Instead of chasing that paper.
Just live your life (Oh! ),

You got no time for no haters.
Just live your life (Oh! ),

No telling where it'll take you.
Just live your life (Oh! ),

T.I.:
I'm the opposite of moderate,
Immaculately polished
With the spirit of a hustler
And the swagger of a college kid.
Allergic to the counterfeit,
Impartial to the politics.
Articulate
But still would grab a nigga
By the collar quick.
Whoever had problems,
They reconciled
They just holla TIP.
If that don't work
And just fails,
Then turn around and follow TIP.
I got love for the game
But hey
I'm not in love with all of it.
I do without the fame
And the rappers nowadays are comedy.
The hootin' and the hollerin',
Back and forth with the arguing.
Where you from, who you know,
What you make
And what kind of car you in.
Seems as though you lost sight
Of what's important
With the positive.
And checks
Until your bank account,
And you're about poverted.
Your values is a disarrayed,
Prioritized are horribly.
Unhappy with the riches
Cause you piss-poor morally.
Ignoring all prior advice
And fore warning.
And we might be
Full of ourselves
All of a sudden aren't we?

Rihanna:
You're gonna be
A shining star,
With fancy clothes,
And fancy car-ars.
And then you'll see,
You're gonna go far.
Cause everyone knows,
Who you are-are.
So live your life,
Ay ay ay.
Instead of chasing that paper.
Just live your life (Oh! ),
Ay ay ay.
You got no time for no haters.
Just live your life (Oh! ),
Ay ay ay.
No telling
Where it'll take you.
Just live your life (Oh! ),
Ay ay ay.
Cause I'm a paper chaser.
Just living my life (ay),
My life (oh),
My life (ay),
My life (oh)
Just living my life (ay),
My life (oh),
My life (ay),
My life (oh)

So live your life.

Rihanna:
Now everybody watcha wanna do
Come walk in my shoes
And see the way I'm living if you really want to
Got my mind on my money, and I'm not going away
So keep on getting your paper
And keep on climbing
And look in the mirror and keep on shining
Till the game ends, till the clock stops
We gonna post stuff on the top spot
I'm living my life
My life
Brand new city got my whole team
I'm living my life
My life
I'll do it how I wanna do it
I'm living my life
My life
I will never lose
I'm living my life
My life
And I'm not stopping

Start living your life
(Your life)
