T.i. – Praying For Help lyrics

T. I.
Prayin for Help

(T. I. Prayin) Intro
Our Father
Who are in heaven
Hollowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us for our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory
For ever, and ever

[Verse:]
Man I'm prayin for help
While I'm lookin at the life I left
It's kinda hard not to hate myself
But quiet is kept right or wrong
It's just the way I felt
I might be better of prayin for death
On my knees I knelt
Still trying to find a way to accept
It ain't a way I can help nobody
Till I save myself
Technically I'm still a slave myself
I gotta climb out the grave myself
Man I played myself
But when I look at all the fans I touched
I ask how can a man that's done so much
Be treated so unjust
Cause I'm tryin to inspire da folks
Wanna condemn cause they sell dope
Well man show em the ropes
Be a father a football coach a role model or a symbol of hope
Take another approach
Instead of testifying against em in court
Handcuffin em and closin the door so they can be worse than before
Can't you see they only do what they know
Then you wonder why they don't care no more
Life ain't fair I know
But why I'm hated everywhere I go
Next time you wanna compare my flow just know
I'm prayin for help...

[Chorus:]
Askin somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin hard but I'm only a man (man)
I'm prayin for help
Hopin somebody else can see what I see
It's like the hood only matter to me they got me
(Prayin for help)
Hopin somebody else can carry the torch
I'm all alone with no kinda support
(While I) was prayin for help
Realized I don't need nobody else
If God with me I can do it myself
(Tired of just prayin for help)

[Verse 2:]
I know it's only one king
One thing, one being, only something I believe
Without seein and with all my faith
I pray somehow, someway regardless of what anyone say
I believe one day that imma change my life
Get right, start livin like Christ, till the end of my fight
Imma be defending my strife, till somebody come and shut off my lights
I ain't never gone quit
No matter how difficult is gone get
And you can bet whatever on this
I'm forever gone spit
Harder than niggaz hatin on tip
You can take the weight and place it on tip
I'll double my load carry it as the trouble unfolds
Hold yos and I bet I don't fold
Put that on my soul
If it takez till I'm 100 years old
Bet I'm reachin every one of my goals
You know I'm prayin for help...

[Chorus:]
Askin somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin hard but I'm only a man (man)
I'm prayin for help
Hopin somebody else can see what I see
It's like the hood only matter to me they got me
(Prayin for help)
Hopin somebody else can carry the torch
I'm all alone with no kinda support
(While I) was prayin for help
Realized I don't need nobody else
If God with me I can do it myself
(Tired of just prayin for help)

[Verse 3:]
So many times I done wish that I could change my mind
Change my life and leave the game behind
And it's been so many days
I done prayed I could find a way
Find the heart and the time to say
Only so many are blessed with
So many chances, so many checks
So many fans with so many arrests
And it's been so many deaths
So many prisons with niggaz in there
And the system keep playin them to the left
Man it's so many test so many haters love seein you stress
But tribulations come with being the best
Still there's so many reflects, singin bout Tecs
Winnin, green and the trickz?
Sellin dreams that never seen in the jex?
That's why I'm seen as a threat
So many stripes off the streets in my vest
So many rappers get so little respect
Man niggaz faith on the shelf
Cause of the cards that a nigga was dealt
Or the hard that a nigga done dealt
So many niggaz that left
Out of the hood
Made a way for theyself
Instead of givin back they stay for theyself
So many playin theyself
Instead of reading educating theyselves
The ones who won't pray for theyself, they got me
Prayin for help...

[Chorus:]
Askin somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin hard but I'm only a man (man)
I'm prayin for help
Hopin somebody else can see what I see
It's like the hood only matter to me the got me
(Prayin for help)
Hopin somebody else can carry the torch
I'm all alone with no kinda support
(While I) was prayin for help
Realized I don't need nobody else
If God with me I can do it myself
(Tired of just prayin for help)

(Refrain)
Askin somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin hard but I'm only a man (man)
I'm prayin for help
Hopin somebody else can see what I see
It's like the hood only matter to me the got me
(Prayin for help)
Hopin somebody else can carry the torch
I'm all alone with no kinda support
(While I) was prayin for help
Realized I don't need nobody else
If God with me I can do it myself
(Tired of just prayin for help)
Prayin for help
Prayin for help
