Born 1987, no daddy around
Just me and my moms, I had to get on my job
See I got 2 sisters, but I hardly seen em
You ask why, and I tell you my career's the reason
2 nephews and I got a couple nieces
My grandmother so sweet, just like georgia peaches
I know you mad at me, but we can fix it though
And I show you know I love you, just to let you know
See I neglected y'all, but now I need y'all closer
Cause nowadays I'm feeling like the devil's on my shoulder
My little sister's 18 and got her own car
Just so she ain't knocking fast for them young boys
See I wonder if my dad will see his young granddaughter
Facing all my obstacles as life gets harder
And I know that I can make things right
I gotta start now, don't get a second chance on life

[Hook]
I know I ain't perfect, nobody on earth is
But god I'm working, to better myself
Sure I know that I can, got a daughter to raise
When all else fails, get on my knees and pray
It's hard, but I try, get on my knees and pray
It's hard but I try

Feel like I'm dying inside, bullshit aside
Put away my pride, it's ok to cry
Can we go back to how it used to be
This distant shit is new to me
Tryina remain positive, these haters tryina get to me
Putting on for my daughter, putting on for my aunts
Me and my moms got a connection like a fiend me and pac
Yeah, I love my homies like blood brothers
And even thought we don't talk, I still got love for them
All my homies on lockdown, doing the bizz
Try to maintain, keep your head up, kid
And even thought it's a journey just to make it to the top
Young and black with a ferrari, I get sweated by the cops
They don't like you when they young and got more than what they got
Ths is for the young man hustling on the block
Shit, you can be whatever, not like me, but better
When that road get tough, keep your head up

[Hook] x 2
I know I ain't perfect, nobody on earth is
But god I'm working, to better myself
Sure I know that I can, got a daughter to raise
When all else fails, get on my knees and pray
It's hard, but I try, get on my knees and pray
It's hard but I try
