  • Bone Thugs, Akon, yeah
    You know though nothin' come easy, you gotta try real, real hard
    I tried hard, but I guess I gotta try harder

    [Chorus]
    I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery
    Man, I tried so hard, will always be a victim of these streets
    It ain't my fault 'cause I try to get away, but trouble follows me
    And still I try so hard, hopin' one day they'll come and rescue me
    But until then I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail, snow)
    But until then I'll be posted up right here with my heat, gettin' dough (gettin' dough)

    First, let me explain that I'm just a black man
    And I come from the dark side, so I'm havin' a hard time stayin' on track, man
    My mind be racin', and I don't even know what I'm chasin' yet
    Been in and out of relationships
    I'm startin' to see that it's me where the complications at
    But I'm layin' back, prayin' that you get that piece of mind of me
    I thought I was right, but really I'm wrong, but again I was too blind to see
    I was in the fast lane chasin' my dream
    And then it seemed when the fame and cash came, they just got me
    Goin' crazy (lately, lately) lately I been so faded trying to erase it
    But I just can't 'cause the drama just grows greater
    And I been in so many collisions by puttin' **** off till later

    [Chorus]

    It's like I'm takin' five steps forward, and ten steps back
    Tryin' to get ahead of the game but I can't seem to get it on track
    And I keep runnin' away the ones that say they love me the most
    How could I create the distance when it's supposed to be close? And uh,
    I just don't know, but I be out here fightin' demons, and
    It's like the curse that I can't shake this part of Cleveland, and
    Lord, would you help me, and stop this pain?
    I keep inflictin' on my family (family)
    Hustlin' and gamblin', drinkin' and scramblin'
    And losin' sight of what I supposed to be handlin'
    It's hard to manage 'cause every day's a challenge and, man
    And I'm slippin'; can't lose my balance, and tryin' not to panic

    [Chorus]

    I see things won't change (won't change) I'm stuck in the game
    As soon as I get out, it keeps pullin' me back, man (pullin' me back, man)
    Got me doin' dirty dirt; so used to this hustlin' money
    That I don't understand no nine to five work
    Studied on the streets; hustlas know what I mean
    Thugstas ballin' before us; I'm tryin' to make that major league
    So we never leave, never till the sun came up (came up)
    Gotta get it, nope, no leavin', no grudge (no grudge)
    Today games they play, gotta go hard to get what you put in
    If you fall off, then it's all on you (on you)
    Gotta watch what you sign too; try so hard, but I won't act a fool

    [Chorus]
