Don Perion – Letter To My Family lyrics

You want me in a house, with a white picket fence,
Working for a cents, while I’m trying to pay the rent,
Money all spent, cause the wifeys on pain pills,
Try to act normal, work overtime, and pay bills,
Drunk on Saturday, church on Sunday,
Coffee in the morning, get me ready for Monday,
Then say, go to school, you could be me one day,
Quit all that rap, you’re about to throw your life away
(Breath) but no I can’t do that,
Middle finger up, I’m like fuck that, screw that
The world on my shoulders, that means I can move that
I’m about to lose it, I’m telling you move back!
And maybe I am off track,
Tell me why these rappers now-a-days, all wack
I’m looking to the future, man I’m done looking back
I always keep it real, so I don’t know how to act

(Verse 1: Don Perion)

Oh yeah, oh yeah, they saying that I’m crazy,
I guess cause I’m rapping, by default, that makes me lazy,
You say that you love me but I’m feeling like you hate me,
I ain't got job, man, who you think pays me?
The fans, the fans, and I don’t see you in the stands,
So you don’t really understand, what I’m thinking on my plan
I’m a loser to you, to a million I’m the man
Look at where the fuck I’ve been, I’m just doing what I can
And I hate to stay away just because you love to judge me
Anything you could say, man haters said it, trust me
The worlds kind of ugly, I’m losing all my friends,
But you wouldn't know that, you ain’t asked me how I been
Got a lot on my mind, always something on my head
Thank the lord for this day, then I count my daily bread,
And don't tell what to do, if you don't know what I said
If it wasn't for rap, then I'd probably be dead, dead,

(Hook: Don Perion)
Man I swear this life is just bringing me down,
Still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up,
Save me from here, oh yeah, yeah,
Man I swear this life is just bringing me down,
Still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up,
Save me from here, oh yeah, yeah,

[Verse 2: Don Perion)
Oh yeah, why you want me up in college?
Just to end up in debt, unemployed, jobless,
I tell you imma make it, and you think I’m talking nonsense
I got a better plan, and to all of you I promise
I've been getting busy, just spoke game with Missy,
Kicking it with Mall G, on tour with Bizzy,
Got the game, like who the fuck is he,
But you don't pay attention, you just be like, where the skrizz b
Still on welfare, still no healthcare,
Easy ta judge, but I don't see no help here,
Better off out there, freeway said I spit hot,
Learned from the game, it don’t matter what you really got,
You just got to earn your spot, if you put in work, you pop,
I ain’t ever had a flop, 100K on every drop,
And I never plan to stop, forgive me if I’m wrong
If I end up with nothing, I had nothing all along

(Hook: Don Perion)
Man I swear this life is just bringing me down,
Still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up,
Save me from here, oh yeah, yeah,
Man I swear this life is just bringing me down,
Still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up, still I’m looking up,
Save me from here, oh yeah, yeah
