Think you got it all good, next thing you know, your in the slums;
Go ’round like its alright, but feels like a knife in your state of mind;
Hold your head high, even though your mind is all low;
Do what you do to take away your pain, but it always leaves you the same;
Wake up everyday not ready to face the day ahead of you;
Its a sickening fear inside you, that you don’t know how to tell anyone else;
Its darkness wraps around spine, towards your mind, and spreads through you like a disease and leaves you without a state of mind.
The top is far, and you’ve been stuck at the bottom far too long;
The light barely shines toward your direction, the hope is weak;
Great ambition, and so many love you, so why are you so weak;
Life passes you by, and you struggle to keep your feet;
No one seems to understand you, and you wonder why it’s like this;
Your just so busy, and there is no time for rest, it makes you weak;
You feel like your fighting a war, but what war are you fighting;
No one seems to understand, nor do you seem to understand life;
It’s a complicated matter, but it tears your soul apart;
Your lost and it’s been years, can’t seem to find yourself;
But this pain feels like infinity.
Been a rough few years, looked up to God prayed that he remove the enemies from my life;
And before you it, I started losing friends, left and right, it just don’t feel right;
You believe in these people around you, and they succeed an then you just ain’t shit no more;
Then when your falling down there’s no one around, then they still expect everything from you;
Now I just say fuck’em, and think ain’t it funny how shit change around.
I wanna see if I can make you reach things unobtainable;
I just want to give you what’s better than better;
Can’t deny that I want you, but I’ll lie if I have too;
We already know girl, we’ve loved and we’ve lost;
Let me peak into your nature, and all I know is;
She’s about to earn some bragging rights tonight;
And all I say is girl, take pride in what you wanna do;
You know I’m here for you, but tonight I could be a memory;
I hate sleeping alone, so girl I’m here if you ever need company;
Set the pace girl, and I’ll adjust to your desires, give me a chance to make you remember me.
Take a look into my eyes, and tell me what you see;
And don’t lie to me, cause ill see it in your eyes;
Don’t read me wrong, cause girl I want to be your man;
Treat you right, see you shine, watch you smile;
Don’t worry girl, I’ll be here for you and watch over you;
Cause baby girl, I just want to see you well off.
Wish you could treat her different but ain’t it late now;
You care about her but why didn’t you show it;
Now you look back and say what was I thinking;
Then you now see she smiling, and you thank god;
You happy for her, but you like damn, wish it was me putting smile on that beautiful face;
Now you just left to reminisce.
She said I’m sorry I didn’t believe you and I just thought I wouldn’t try an lie to you;
It seems so far lost now, but I try and keep it close;
I think about it and it seems a lot clearer now;
I wish it turned out differently, but there isn’t we can do about it now;
Now I look at us and we both way different now;
It’s crazy how fast stuff changes in life;
And how much you learn and look back and see things differently;
Still love her to death, but I never know where her mind at.
