Life is but a dream
Ain't always what it seems

from Fabolous (Ft. Lil Wayne) – That's Not Love Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A play on the American nursery rhyme “Row Row Row Your Boat.” If life is but a dream, then life “ain’t always what it seems.” Dreams are often unclear or blurred, as sometimes life is.

Though, “Ain’t always what it seems” isn’t an actual line from the nursery rhyme, it fits the rhyme scheme of the song, and the original nursery rhyme, as well as incorporating some nice metaphor.
