Tumi - Endurance lyrics

[Hook: HHP] Wa bona ntwana never give it up at all Man up and stand up Remember you started a long time ago Ha gona sepe se se difficult at all And if they got a problem let em know (I guess its time to move on) Wa bona ntwana never give it up at all Man up and stand up Remember you started a long time ago Ha gona sepe se se difficult at all And if they got a problem let em know Let em know [Verse 1: Reason] I remember being poor Not so long ago, scrubbing on my grandmama floor Counting all the hoes That's been there since I was four Wishing I could eat the chip on my shoulder To make me strong It was mean times with grandmoms And my uncle Raymond Had a steady day job Blew it all and it paid off Worst of all he got laid off Washed up with no Sta-Soft I got myself some education Just so I don't stay starving Cause I remember when they cut the power off Fridge was empty anyway so nothing would go off Living off primus and coal stove Just to be warm Fry some chicken feet And use the oil as gravy sauce Now, room service at five stars Puffing joints out the hotel window In Cape Town or Nairobi I declare on my invoice 37 calling the room asking to thank God that we on [Hook] [Verse 2: Reason] This is the pain I've endured I remember being broke son Pops working to the bone son My mind telling me flow son My grind telling me own up Your a** ain't gon blow up Don't talk jack just crawl back In that backpack and get a real Job Damn, mama told me life was hard But she didn't say no more Cause I never listened at all 'Til I had to borrow money for transport To record my verse on street music That minute I got the call (Now I'm gone) Ah, looking back at all my shortfalls I Look forward to a lot more Like world tours and encores I mean what else is next after You open up award shows With bars known by every 16 year old at your mall So all in all here's to spitting bars And bottles stores, and moving onto climbing charts And hanging with the biggest stars Although it's way bigger than living large I'm living off the art God gave to my heart And now I'm feeling more [Hook] [Bridge (Poetry): Nova] Stand as tall as time Cause these skies bear witness To how mere dust can rise to meet God in the air There lies your story from grime to glory Struggles turned scripture inscribed into your spine To remind your backbone of what you've always known The ground is not your home Straighten up and fly right Endure and keep on you are the celebration Never a funeral march or swan song This 808 of your heart beats only triumphs from the war March on 'til life hands you an applause For the curse and the cause For the fight and the flaw For the sleepless nights of dreams That dance victory to your door Keep resilience at your core And a church in your palms You're the future that is fashioned from Fight and freedom song Stay low keep firing And it won't be too long if you endure Marry Swagdeline
