lyrics

(Chorus)
If only your dreams came true, you'd be paid coz you've paid your dues /
But you won't get nothin' /
Though your needs ain't new, start believing and make that move /
Now ain't that something /
Even great men lose, might fall when they make theirs too /
But you gotta get up then /
And the pain felt through the mistakes can be used to improve /
Reinforcing your substance /

(1)
You can dream all you wanna, it's not gonna come true /
Unless your name was Lucy or that's all you've pursued /
An' its a hard fight balancing your dreams and your life /
Though if your dream is paying, then I guess you're alright /

No intentions of gettin' paid, s'not why you do it /
An' if you bought my album, you know what the truth is /
I hold my tongue in cheek, integrity's high /
Though who wants to listen to this idiot whine /

Let-alone fit it to rhyme; you've got nothing to lose /
So what if you fail, it's a lesson to use /
And each time you'll get better, improve /
Don't fester and stew, rise above any negative mood /

An' if it isn't meant to be; c'est la vie /
Set it free, let it go, never keep what in't yours /
Said I'm pleased when I weave many themes to the beats /
I'm at peace, what's achieved's nothing short /

Of a miracle for me; so calm, get the words out /
Don't even try and it's there to be heard now /
Alive on the page, before I've put the verse down /
More to be written, dreams to be searched: found /

(2)
Some days you wake smiling, and others you don't /
And if you concede to pressure then your chest'll implode /
If the thoughts that you carry round are weighing you down /
It really helps to talk 'em out, don't be silent, announce /

How it feels, and what's caused it to someone you trust /
Use their perspective, understanding's a must /
Need to comprehend communication's the crux /
That's before you solve the problem or it boots you to touch /

And it's hard not to let things seem overpowering /
But I've no time for the head in sand cowardice /
Every man's soured with a bitterness in their lives /
There's lies the challenge that's beggin' for some air time /

There's always times when it's best to stay quiet, though /
Hold your tongue for the sake of their triumph, so /
If you made your bed, sometimes it's hard laying in it /
Seek some divine intervention, then pray a minute /

I'm not saying this'll make you feel any better /
Or that God cares more for you than the rest together /
You'll never be the same person after such events /
Maybe wiser, your substance reinforced again /
