  • My father said never give up, son
    Just look how good Cassius become
    Muhammad, Mahatma, and Nelson
    Not scared to be strong

    "I mean what if they say I'm no good?
    What if they say "Get out of here, kid, you got no future?"

    Now you could run and just say they're right
    No, I'll never be no one in my whole life
    Or you could turn and say, "No, wait, they're wrong"
    And get to keep on dancing all life long

    My father said never give up, son
    Just look what Amelia and Joan done
    Oh Rosa, Teresa, the war won
    Not scared to be strong

    Now you could run and just say they're right
    No, I'll never be no one in my whole life
    Or you could turn and say, "No, wait, they're wrong"
    And get to keep on dancing all life long

    Yeah, you could be
    Someone special
    You've got bright in your brains and lightning in your veins
    You'll go higher than they've ever gone
    In you I see
    Someone special
    You've got fire in your eyes and when you realize
    You'll go further than we've ever gone (look)
    Just turn it on

    I paid my intuition, I couldn't afford tuition
    My funds was insufficient, it felt I'm in prison
    Until I realized I had to set my mind free
    I was trusting statistics more than I trust me
    Get a degree, good job, 401k
    But I'm tryna turn K's to M's, what does it take?
    And maybe I could be the new Ali of music, prolly
    Instead of doing it just as a hobby like these boys told me to
    I guess you either watch the show or you show and prove
    Prove it to them or you prove it to yourself
    But honestly, it's better if you do it for yourself
    Never complacent 'til we hit the oasis
    One life, don't waste it, feel my heart races, success I taste it, ah
    We on the verge of getting every single thing that we deserve

    Yeah, you could be
    Someone special
    You've got fire in your eyes, I see heaven inside
    You'll go further than we've ever gone
    In you I see
    Someone special
    You've got bright in your brains, you can break through those chains
    You'll go higher than we've ever gone
    Just turn it on

    In you I see
    Someone special
    Don't go to war with yourself
    Just turn, just turn, just turn it on
    And you can't go wrong Writer/s: Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, Sean Michael Anderson, William Champion
