lyrics

I wanna take some fireflies

Brighten up the darkness within me

I wonder if Delilah

Still, live in New York City



Do they

Still tease

For wearing

Plain white tees

To your knees

Like you was

Bout to crank S.B's



Would you love me

If my attitude

Wasn’t the same



If I ain’t in position

Where you thought

I had a name



Will things change

If I succumb

To the fame



Or will the high

of the moment

be to blame.



Did you

Go and

Try to get higher

The night

You got your wings



Did you

Ever express

What you battled within



I know this mind

Can be a war zone



Never wanted you

Permanently to be alone



I wish

I could make Demons

Evaporate gone



And I could give you more

Something more

Than a fuckin song



If I could

Take your

darkness

would tried my hardest



But something

Got a grip

It pulls your back

Like a harness.



Refuse to let

Them tarnish



Your perfect image

Cause we all got our downfalls



And if they speak in vain

You know I run my mouth off



Never really know

What going down internally



The more that you drift

I pray that you return to me



Was it me?

Was it something I did?

What did Mom and dad

Never give you as a kid



I swear I would give my all

Just to have it the old way



I'd give back this shine

If that meant

You’d be old B



But the love

Feel realer

crawling

Thru your veins



Cause

the love

I have

Can’t numb no pain



I used to look to you

When they throw the book at you

The glass between us

Attempted to change

My view of you.



How we get here?

Where the road fork at?

When did the needle

Become more important than me man?



Nights I couldnt sleep

When my phone ring

late night

I would fear

A bad dose

Took ya life



Now I know

You’re not under your control

I just rewind

And let the good times roll



At times I feel like

Like I never really knew you

How I ain’t see

All the pain

That you grew thru



I was busy

Tryna make my name



I was busy

Tryna chase some fame



Dedication of my teens

To the game



In and out the club

So they know who I am



Now I rebel

Against all

I thought I wanted

90 percent of my life

Nobody kept it 100

had to build my own way

Do my own thing

Now they wanna latch

Cause they see what the grind bring



Fuck some IG numbers

That equates to nothing

Ain’t no double taps

When you alone and haunted



Don’t no followers

Really follow you

To your destruction

they gon watch

The entertainment

And say nothing



All I wanted is

Becoming a reality

When I lost you

I lost all the doubt in me



You never

Let me

See myself

For nothing

Less than great



Change the name

From dream

To goals

Go ahead and chase



And know

This life issues

No receipts



You can’t return

Anything you see



But you gain

Everything

That you seek



You’re powerful

when You feel weak



Grind

Pray

Go

Work

Hard

Believe.



I possess all I need.



Grind

Pray

Work

Hard

Believe.



I possess all I need





When the skies part

And I’m called home

No longer in the physical

It’s just my soul

I’ll face the throne

With the true belief

that I lived as I was

Created to be





When the skies part

And I’m called home

No longer in the physical

It’s just my soul

I’ll face the throne

With the true belief

that I lived as I was

Created to be



I am (x3)
