Make me believe in something I lost faith in
When they didn’t have a spot for me, I made a way in
And I been praying for a change, can I get an amen?
And I been put through the fire like a hazing
I’m just a young black man with the world on my shoulders
And I smell like success, you can smell the aroma
Are you good to the last drop like a cup full of Folgers?
And these people spreading lies, don’t listen to a word that they told you
We could make magic happen, pull happiness like a trick up my sleeve
When I don’t feel wanted, I fall back like when a hairline recedes
Sometimes I feel like it’s the whole world versus me
I just need someone to have my back, even when I can’t see
I ain’t on no simp shit, or pimp shit, this is somewhere in the middle
If she says I’m a dog, then I’mma treat her like some kibbles
She wanted me to taste the rainbow, treat her like some skittles
But I’m still a busy man, I don’t have the time for riddles
So say what you mean and mean what you say
If you want me to fall back, say it. Promise I’ll be ok
If you think I’m playing games, tell me, there could be a change.
And I’ll give you the courtesy to treat your ass just the same.
I believe in 50/50, not 100/0 or 60/40
If there’s beauty in the struggle, then my journey has been gorgeous.
She wanted me to magic trick on her? So I disappeared
I might just be cutting people off for the rest of the year
If the game is rigged, the only way to win is to not play.
If you aren’t bringing peace into my home, then you cannot stay.
I’m a little jaded, but I’m working on myself though
Drama always sticking to me, like a pair of velcro’s
Been through hell and back, guess what? I’m still dope
I just need your ray of sunshine to give me a little hope
So make me believe in something I lost all belief in
Someone’s gonna get the best of me, put yourself in the lead then
