[Verse 1:]
I don't always do what I should
But I do what I gotta do
You've been at the bottom, you see the hunger inside of you
Don't say what you won't do
Cus it can all change
When the going gets tough it'll drive you insane
See I done dodged a couple shots
Saved a couple blocks
Hit a couple corners tryna shake a couple cracks
A broke a couple rules
Didn't graduate from school
Cus I was busy hustling when I thought that s**t was cool

[Pre-Hook:]
See I gotta keep it real wit you baby
Cus the s**t I used to do is what made me
And I'm hopin I ain't gotta go back to the trap
Cus we really know that we don't want that

[Hook:]
But if I don't make it home tonight
Tell my mama that I love her
Leave some flowers for my brother
Girl I love ya
But if I don't make it home tonight
Take some money to my sister
I don't ever want her chasin after n****s
Cus where I'm from
N****s outchea dyin every day
And they ain't not bad, they're just tryna make a way
And I ain't no different
So if I get missin
These are my last wishes
I hope you getting by
Girl if I don't make it home tonight

[Verse 2:]
I know it's harsh
But this is how I feel, girl it's comin from the heart
I hope it doesn't end the way it had to start
Cus it started out bad but I made it this far
But everyone here tired to see me make it
Or they only wanna see me win so they can take it
Cus I know it's hard to find a job
So n****s kill and rob
There's a chance that I won't make it here tomorrow
Being honest

[Pre-Hook:]
See I gotta keep it real wit you baby
Cus the s**t I used to do is what made me
And I'm hopin I ain't gotta go back to the trap
Cus we really know that we don't want that

[Hook:]
But if I don't make it home tonight
Tell my mama that I love her
Leave some flowers for my brother
Girl I love ya
But if I don't make it home tonight
Take some money to my sister
I don't ever want her chasin after n****s
Cus where I'm from
N****s outchea dyin every day
And they ain't not bad, they're just tryna make a way
And I ain't no different
So if I get missin
These are my last wishes
I hope you getting by
Girl if I don't make it home tonight

[Verse 3: Jeezy]
Would you miss me? Would you miss me?
Would you walk up to my casket? Would you kiss me?
My life is schizophrenic, I'm just tryna stay sane
Pour a cup full, hope it take away the pain
I said you know I I I I
Came from the projects, n***a
Don't care if it kill me, I die, I'll stay in the projects
You know I'm fresh as a m**********r, in case that I die tonight
Got a lot on my mind, you know that I'm high tonight
I left that black Hublot at home
So really I don't got the time
My n***a got by a quarter, heard that he dropped the dime
Failure's no option n***a, you out of yo fuckin mind
Mixin my life and my freedom fool
So ain't none of you stopping my…

[Hook x2:]
But if I don't make it home tonight
Tell my mama that I love her
Leave some flowers for my brother
Girl I love ya
But if I don't make it home tonight
Take some money to my sister
I don't ever want her chasin after n****s
Cus where I'm from
N****s outchea dyin every day
And they ain't not bad, they're just tryna make a way
And I ain't no different
So if I get missin
These are my last wishes
I hope you getting by
Girl if I don't make it home tonight
