    Daddy always told me to be real
    Daddy always said that, I should say just what I feel
    People, they will judge you cause they just don't understand
    You're in it for the long ride, you don't just give up on a man
    And like every woman who's been through the fire as well
    We ALL got a story half afraid to tell, yeah
    People they will judge you 'cause they just can't comprehend
    You're headed for the long ride, you don't just give up on a friend

    (Now the ones have moved on) Gone to where the sun shines all the time
    (We're still standing) Though some might think we've lost our minds
    (We shall fulfill) our legacy divine
    It's just that we're so different, makes our place a little harder to find

    [Chorus]
    Grapes on a vine (Grapes on a vine) don't always make sweet wine
    Grapes on a vine, yeah, don't always make sweet wine
    Grapes on a vine (Grapes on a vine) don't always make sweet wine
    Might be bitter, but it gets better with time

    Momma always said that, it's okay to dream
    Momma always warned me things ain't always what they seem (and my momma told me)
    People, they will judge you; leave you sittin' on a shelf
    Remember it's a long ride, just don't you give up on yourself
    And like every man, who wants to make his mark
    We ALL got a secret hidden in our hearts, yeah {We all got a secret}
    People they will judge us, 'cause they just don't really see
    We're in it for the long ride, just don't you give up on you and me, no!

    [Chorus]

    Uh, uh
    Grapes on a vine, ain't nuttin' sweet
    You gotta pay the price, just keep your receipt
    I can make the world have a seat on my feet
    And I come from New Orleans where the water too deep
    Money bring problems, the funny thang 'bout it
    Everybody want it, want it 'til they got it
    Sometimes I forget and put my trouble in my pockets
    Then hang up my pants, now I got monsters in my closet
    Get right with me, Miss Wright with me
    Die hard, I got too much life in me
    Shades on, I'm seein' past that
    Bittersweet wine, where your glass at?
    Toast! You haters are ghost
    I make y'all sick, you need a full dose, ha!
    And my momma told me do me
    And stay away from that fruit tree, because

    [Chorus: x2]

    (Do you, do you)
    So do you, do you, do you
    (Miss Wright with me) Be your own best friend
    (Miss Wright with me) Be your own best friend
    (Miss Wright with me, Miss Wright with me)
    Be your own best friend
    (Miss Wright, Miss Wright, Miss Wright with me)
    You gotta love on you before anybody else can learn to
    You gotta love you, LOVE you, yeah, love you, love you
