AK The Menace – On My Own lyrics
[Intro]
Uh, uh, uh
Look

[Verse 1]
Them people around me
They couldn’t tell how I was livin’
Kept to myself
They couldn’t tell how I was feelin’
Fightin’ these demons
Sometimes it felt like they was winnin’
Talkin’ to God
Sometimes it felt like he ain’t listen
But it took me some time
I had to grow, I did it quickly
I was just a child
With some killas out to get me
When things were lookin’ up
My depression came and hit me
Had me in my room at night
Wonderin’ why God sent me

Now, let me say it simply
I was really faithful
But every time a jit got ahead
He turned the table
But every time I fell to my knees
I felt more able
And every time a door closed on me
I was still grateful
And ever time I got what I need
I’m feelin’ thankful
Even when the curtain fall down
The stage is stable
Even if the sun do not shine
The dark won’t take me
If you know my past
You should know that you can’t break me

[Chorus]
It seemed like everybody had it good but me
They was lovin’ but nobody was here for me
I was thuggin’ on my own when it got ugly
Put a wrap all on that like it’s a mummy
And I can’t tell you what I’m really on
I’mma prevail, even on my own
And I can’t fail, so, I gotta stay strong
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, thuggin’ on my own

[Verse 2]
It seemed like everybody
Had it goin’ good
No childhood
All I ever had was hood
I wanted to be different
And show the world some good
She knew I was from the jungle
By the way I carry wood
I was always challenged
Kept it movin’ if I could
I was keepin’ quiet
But made noise in the hood
Hustle through the struggle
Puttin’ it that work
Make it out the dirt
Before you end up on a shirt

I was down bad
With the tabs and the syrup
And the gas and the work
Had my path in a blur
I was down bad
When a girl broke my heart
I was down bad
I don’t know where to start

But don’t let them people phase you
Don’t let ‘em change you
You gotta maintain through
And keep it stable
Don’t let them people phase you
Don’t let ‘em change you
You gotta maintain through
And keep it stable

[Chorus]
It seemed like everybody had it good but me
They was lovin’ but nobody was here for me
I was thuggin’ on my own when it got ugly
Put a wrap all on that like it’s a mummy
And I can’t tell you what I’m really on
I’mma prevail, even on my own
And I can’t fail, so, I gotta stay strong
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, thuggin’ on my own

[Bridge]
Ayy, I don’t really think they
Understand what I’ve been through man
Hard times growin’ up man
I had to grow up quick
It really felt like the world was against me
It left me with permanent scars man
I couldn’t even fake this

[Chorus]
It seemed like everybody had it good but me
They was lovin’ but nobody was here for me
I was thuggin’ on my own when it got ugly
Put a wrap all on that like it’s a mummy
And I can’t tell you what I’m really on
I’mma prevail, even on my own
And I can’t fail, so, I gotta stay strong
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, thuggin’ on my own
