Time goes through it's own tulips, don't hope too much
I knew one day, somebody say I smoke too much
So I calmed down, no didn't smoke less
I smoked more to calm down cause i'm so stressed
Used to be teased, until people figured that I could rap
Couldn't fight for a lick but I knew how to spit
So what I do, moved, to another frame of mind
Niggas swear they so cool, but i'm like an Ice Cube
Friday nights, I was lost so insane
And the gang I hanged with would do the same thing cause we lame as shit
At least titled that by our peers
Can't imagine this life in a couple years
Long trips to school car broke down
With no money to get it fixed, fuck a college benefit
One semester, now a nigga owe a couple thousand
While these mothafuckas smiling

Hook: My life, my pain, my sunshine, my rain/ My losses, my glories, and this is my story/ My heartaches, my love, everything all between and above/ The warm nights, when it's stormy, and this is my story/

If I was religious, God's gift I would call these visions
A time when money isn't in mind, and I hand that thought to lost cash cause money isn't in mine
Gotta work everyday just to survive
Hold up, once upon a time four months
Whole family aint have heat, so what?
People aint pitch in thank goodness, the stove we had, worked off of watts not gas
I learned quick, stay laid back like perm kits
And never let a woman get your heart
The moment that you trust that, go and adjust that, the heart that you gave her, she'll definitely crush that and that's
Coming from a man once in love, now I only trust myself put no one else above
And that's coming from a man once in love, now I only trust myself put no one else above


Betrayal the worst thing, it hurts at first
Gets worse then begets the thirst for vengeance
The same bitches you once lusted, you now find disgusting
Plotting to get rich off of your work, you acknowledge but ignore first
The attendance of the truth in the room you discard on pur-pose
Denying that you lonely as a bitch and the cost to exist is a coexistence based around your expenses
Expensive habits you developed to manage a future of people around you
Closest when you down to pennies, need a dollar quick, and they know you gone give it, that's why you niggas kick it
And the kick is, I know how this shit is, get exposed to bullshit everyday that i'm living
Every night, every thought i'm like, let me get this money, i'll be off alright
