[Verse 1: Phora] Yeah, sometimes I feel like giving up Sometimes I feel I'm who they blame Sometimes I feel like I ain't good enough But I just look back at how far I came Sittin' on my mama's couch, sippin' on a 40 ounce All my family had was debt and overdrawn bank accounts I never though I'd make it out, cousin tried to slang an ounce Everywhere I went they always had sh** to complain about So I took my own route to see where life would take me I didn't know much but I knew no one could replace me All I had was music man and that's the sh** that saved me See this life is so crazy but I never let it change me Cause the hood ain't never had our back Streets ain't never had our back Left us in the dust to rot what kind of f**in' love is that I rock my dirty Chuck's cause they was all I ever had In junior high they called'em dirty looked at me and laughed Couldn't sit with the kids with Jordan's all they did was brag Made me feel like less than a man cause I wasn't popping tags But momma said what you got inside is what matters Now people ask why I decide to live my life as a rapper But I ain't rapping I'm telling my story writing in chapters I let my pen bleed on a page preach on the mic like a pastor I'm past the bullsh** and the drama, gave my life up to god Just a story of a young kid fighting the odds Look, yeah, gave my life up to god, just a story of a young kid [Hook: Phora] See what they tell you it don't mean nothing homie Long as you know I believe in you homie Cause we all got weaknesses homie Don't let them stop you from dreamin' it homie And what they tell you it don't mean nothing homie Long as you know I believe in you homie Cause we all got weaknesses homie Don't let them stop you from dreamin' it homie [Verse 2: Phora] Yeah, this dream ain't come to me I had to go and chase it Yeah I know I got my flaws but I got no replacements I know the past is the past we just can't go and change it So I dedicate this to my brother who just couldn't make it Now I wash my pain away with Hennessy and Ace of Spades Trynna take it day by day (Watching friends fade away) Cause I guess people switch up when you least expect them to I never lost the love I just lost my respect for you Yeah I have my demons and I have my share of secrets But having a heart and soul was my only f**in' weakness And my girl she want to leave and I don't blame her she got her reasons But it's hard for me to trust anybody She said she leaving and that's what she did Sometimes this life doesn't give people a chance to forgive They say that no one really know what true happiness is But just remember man you only get back what you give (Back what you give) And to my lil homie sittin' in the park smokin' a blunt alone Goin' through some bullsh** with your moms You had to run from home Feel like no one understands but trust me man I f**in' know (I f**in' know) Cause I was scared to be a loser, scared that I would fail Scared that I'd be six feet under ground or in a cell Sometimes we hide behind this mask so scared to be ourselves So scared that they can tell that we scared to live in this hell But lately I'm dreamin' of heaven, gave my life up to god Just a story of a young kid fighting the odds Look, yeah, gave my life up to god, just a story of a young kid [Hook: Phora] See what they tell you it don't mean nothing homie Long as you know I believe in you homie Cause we all got weaknesses homie Don't let them stop you from dreamin' it homie And what they tell you it don't mean nothing homie Long as you know I believe in you homie Cause we all got weaknesses homie Don't let them stop you from dreamin' it homie [Verse 3: Phora] I was always down to ride, no matter what would happen Me I always had your back through the toughest traction We was talkin' bout this rap sh** like just imagine A stadium packed with fans, yeah that was our f**in' pa**ion You look out for me, and I'll look out for you If you down with me then sh** I'm down with you All I ask for is loyalty respect me like a brother See we from the same place n***a that's how we do We ran the streets lookin' for something to find Drinking 40's just to k** time and the stress on my mind Plus we had a lot in common All this anger there was plenty in me sh** it's hard to feel that pain with all this Henny in me I miss the way it was just me and the homies But nowadays everything's different I can't help but feel lonely I'll never forget those memories or things that you showed me Cause the day before you pa**ed you told me [Hook: Phora] See what they tell you it don't mean nothing homie Long as you know I believe in you homie Cause we all got weaknesses homie Don't let them stop you from dreamin' it homie And what they tell you it don't mean nothing homie Long as you know I believe in you homie Cause we all got weaknesses homie Don't let them stop you from dreamin' it homie
