Lyrics

Bone Thugs, Akon, yeah You know don't nothing come easy You gotta try real, real hard I tried hard but I guess I gotta try harder [CHORUS] I tried so hard Can't seem to get away from misery Man, I tried so hard but always Be a victim of these streets It ain't my fault 'cause I try to Get away but trouble follows me And still I try so hard Hoping one day You'll come and rescue me But until then I'll be posted up right here Rain, sleet, hail, snow But until then I'll be posted up right here With my heat getting dough

First, let me explain That I'm just a black man And I come from the darkside So I'm having a hard time Staying on track, man My mind be racing and I don't Even know what I'm chasing yet Been in and out of relationships I'm starting to see that it's me Where the complications at But I'm laying back Praying that you get That piece of mind of me I thought I was right But really I'm wrong But again I was too blind to see I was in the fast lane Chasing my dream And then it seemed when The fame and cash came They just got me going crazy Lately, I been so faded Trying to erase it But I just can't 'cause The drama just grows greater And I been in so many collisions By putting shit off till later [repeat CHORUS] It's like I'm taking five steps forward And ten steps back Trying get ahead of the game But I can't seem to get it on track And I keep running away the ones That say they love me the most How could I create the distance When it's supposed to be close And uh, I just don't know But I be out here fighting demons And it's like a curse that I can't Shake this part of Cleveland And, Lord, would you help me And stop this pain I keep Inflincting on my family Hustling and gambling Drinking and scrambling And losing sight of what I supposed to be handling It's hard to manage 'Cause everyday's a challenge And, man, I'm slipping Can't lose my balance And trying not to panic [repeat CHORUS] I see things won't change I'm stuck in the game As soon as I get out It keeps pulling me back, man Got me doing dirty dirt So used to this hustling money That I don't understand No nine to five work Studied on the streets Hustlas know what I mean Thugstas balling before us I'm trying to make that major league So we never leave Never till the sun came up Gotta get it, nope, no leaving No grudge Today, games they play Gotta go hard to get what you put in If you fall off then it's all on you Gotta watch what you sign too Try so hard but I won't act a fool [repeat CHORUS]
