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.
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.
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.
Experiencing little kid things, now we growing older and experiencing a little more difficult things;
One thing to another thing, ain’t it something, now it’s time to come up and rise on some things;
Come on, bring out your hopes and dreams, and work to achieve them;
If you ain’t got dreams, you ain’t got nothing;
It’s all ambition, motivation, and dedication;
Focus yourself, and live your life!
We come up and we fall down;
Well all have good times and we all have bad times;
Easy things and hard things;
Studying to hustling, crying to smiling, dying to surviving;
It all comes down to your dreams;
Carry yourself toward them, and work hard to achieve them;
Because if you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it;
And If you don’t take a step forward, you’ll always be in the same place.
Oh, look at this life through clear eyes;
Old friends, old girls, ain’t it old news;
I ain’t even stopping to think, swear its the only thing that saves me these days;
Head out the door, hitting the block heavy, hoping I’m coming home;
Start drinking, then I start reminiscing, ain’t it funny;
Old girls pulling heavy, an I ain’t even trynna holla, damn;
Good guy or bad guy? What do I dare choose.
Maybe it is all good, maybe it is going bad;
Good days and bad days, but it’s all still so real;
So many memories to learn from, living fast, so I ignore;
Cell phone going ding, ding … I just hit ignore, yeah;
Remembering back in the day, use to all be close;
It all seemed right, now everythings far far away, so lost;
Now it is just forget everything else, live your life;
Shit, now I just sit here and contemplate;
I can’t think, am I doing this for them or me?;
I know it is real, but I’m so gone;
So I contemplate, so I contemplate.
