I think it hurts when a singer dies
because at one point something they
said gave you life. 
Some line they sung
understood the deepest part of you.
And you worry if anyone will be
able to do that again.

‘Street Life’ was originally written for an audition in New York in fall of 1989 By Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes at only 18. The track touches on street violence, broken homes, prostitution, crack babies and being an educated woman.
