David Dallas – This Is It lyrics
Uh uh uh uh eveyrbody get
If it only come around one time
This is it
Yea yea yea yea yea
Yea yea yea yea yea

Everybody gets a window
Don't blow it like some indo
Got a foot in the door, then go and kick it in bro
Truest shit I ever spoke
If I hadn't gone through with it you'd never now
That I was nice with the tunes that I had afloat
Write it on my tune that I had to go
It was another afternoon 'fore a nervous show
Probably listenin' to something from Atlanta tho
A little bit before my phone had a camera tho
Alcatel 1-touch, heard a buzz and a text from my man comes up
"Yo there's this dude Nick you should meet, if he makes beats, you rap, why you keepin' it a secret?
Played him that one thing that we did, he said that you should link up and he means it
He just did the first single off that Unique shit,
If you haven't heard then you need to go and peep it the shits mean"
Man, wish I was doin' this at fifteen
Sixteen, shit, even eighteen
Turned twenty, feels like I'm playin' catch up
Just startin' out, still tryna get the reps up
These fire songs to spit, I didn't have stuff
As far as confidence, don't think I had much
But an opp like this might never come back cuz
I text him back and said "that's us"
This is it

If it only come around one time
This is it
If you really wanna go the whole nine
This is it
Something worth pickin' up the phone line, to call home
Tell 'em you'll be late
Tell mum go and save me a plate
'Cause this is it
Let's get it on, right now swear to God
This is it right here, better get involved
Let's get it on, right now swear to God
This is it right here, better get involved

Me and the misses in a one bedroom flat
Nothing there but a double bed and a new Mac
Livin' on our own 'cause the world says to do that
Once you are a grown up doesn't change the fact I didn't have no dough cuz
So the pressure goes up
Every month hopin' that I don't get the phone cut off
Meanwhile she just goes to work like a soldier
Puttin' all the rent on her shoulders, that's love
That's trust, that's us
Sharing one casa, every weekday is a mad rush
From 9 to 5 I be tryin' to write mad stuff
Before I go out I hit the road and go pick her up
Before the neighbor gets home and starts kickin' up about the noise
Still feel like I ain't found a voice
Feel like I ain't found an outlet
I just dropped this album for free, I'm 'bout to put it out next
This is it

If it only come around one time
This is it
If you really wanna go the whole nine
This is it
Something worth pickin' up the phone line, to call home
Tell 'em you'll be late
Tell mum go and save me a plate
'Cause this is it
Let's get it on, right now swear to God
This is it right here, better get involved
Let's get it on, right now swear to God
This is it right here, better get involved

Late 2013 things are hummin'
Dropped "Runnin'" now we're 100 miles and runnin'
Damn it feels good to make somethin' out of nothin'
Hope the knockout punch is the one you don't see comin'
Thinkin' back I get a knot in my stomach
When my sis told me that our dad might not wake up from it
It's not like I didn't know he would have to go
Somehow you still feel it'll never happen tho
'Cause he been fightin' that since I was a primary
You get immune to seein' him hooked to an IV
Makin' visits up to the ward so we could talk
Over hospital noise, things beepin' and buzzin' off
Somethin' you don't want nothin' of
Hell of a thing for someone to suffer from
The ironic part of it all is, it's because of those times that I got to know him better than I ever did
Just realize I ain't been the same ever since
Guess it took a bigger toll than I said it did
But tryna get it in, wasn't nothin' comin' out
Label on my back tellin' me the time is runnin' out
But I don't do nothin' for the sake of it
Want it done right then you're gonna have to wait a bit
Still hear my dad sayin' this
Words that I could show ya, time to let him know the wait is over
This is it

If it only come around one time
This is it
If you really wanna go the whole nine
This is it
Something worth pickin' up the phone line, to call home
Tell 'em you'll be late
Tell mum go and save me a plate
'Cause this is it
