Kelley James – All My Life lyrics

When I was a kid, they said shut up and listen
Follow this path stop the games and the wishing
Made me believe with their age and position
That I never could achieve what I wanted, millions
And it’s sometimes just a word that can kill a dreamer

All my life I’ve been searching for the answers thinking
All my times been a waste
I’ve been low, watched the world and these people taunt me
But now it’s my time to say
Imma do it my way
So step the fuck away

It was last month standing on a street in Chicago
Talking to a friend about my life and my last show
I was down on everything until he finally said yo
You gotta live your life like there’s really no tomorrow
And it’s sometimes just a word that can move a dreamer

Please just realize
They can’t control your life
Don’t let them lead you
Down that road
