ALBUM: Strength & Loyalty
Bone Thugs...Akon, yeah
[Intro: Wish Bone]
You know though nothin' come easy, you gotta try real, real hard
I tried hard, but I guess I gotta try harder.
[Chorus: Akon]
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, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,
But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail snow)
But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough (gettin' dough)
[Verse 1: Krayzie Bone]
First let me explain that I'm just a black man (a black man)
And I come from the dark side so I'm having a hard time stayin' on track man
My mind be racin and I don't even know what I'm chasin' yet
Been in and out of relationships
I'm starting to see that it's me where the complications at
But I'm layin' back
Prayin' that
You give that peace of mind to me
I thought I was right but really im wrong and again I was too blind to see
I was in the fast lane
Chasing me dreams
And then it seems like when the fame and cash came
It just got me goin' craaaazzzy lately
I've been so faded
Tryin' to erase it
But I just cain't cuz the drama just goes greater
And I've been in so many collisions by puttin' shit off till later
[Chorus: Akon]
I've Tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery
Man i've tried so hard, will always be a victim of these streets
It ain't my fault cuz 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 gettin dough
[Verse 2: Layzie Bone]
It's like I'm taking 5 steps forward and 10 steps back
Tryna get ahead of the game but I can't seem to get it on track
And i keep runnin away from the ones that say they love me the most
How could I create the distance when it's supposed to be close
And uhh, 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 (help me)
And stop this pain I keep inficting on my family (my family)
Hustlin' and gamblin'
Trickin' and scramblin'
And losing sight of what I'm supposed to be handlin
It's hard to manage
Cuz everydays a challenge
And man I'm slippin'
Can't lose my balance I'm tryin' not to panic
[Chorus: Akon]
I've 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, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,
But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail snow)
But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough (gettin' dough)
[Verse 3: Wish Bone]
I see thangs won't change (wont change) I'm stuck in the game
As soon as I get out it keeps pullin me back man (pullin me back man)
Got me doin' dirty dirt, so used to this hustlin money,
That I don't understand no nine to five work
Studied on the streets, hustlas know what I mean
Thugstas ballin' before us I'm tryna make that major league
So we never leave never till the sun came up (came up)
Gotta get it nope, no leavin, no grudge (no grudge) today games they play gotta go hard to get what you put in, if you fall off then its all on you (on you) gotta watch what you sign too, try so hard but I won't act a fool.
[Chorus: Akon]
I've Tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery
Man i've tried so hard, will always be a victim of these streets
It ain't my fault cuz 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 wit my heat gettin dough
