  • And maybe one day I'll be wiser
    'Cause maybe one day I'll be further from here
    Put all of my faith in tomorrow
    Dark days keep me up all night
    Only thing I know, it's gonna be
    Alright

    You ever wonder what it means to make it by any means
    And finally obtain your dreams
    On the come up, but they run up in a world of many fiends
    I been at it since a teen, get this money, get the cream
    Hard work and sacrifice, but not a lot know what I mean
    Most these rappers, ain't got no class like bomb threats
    And bein' the illest, the disease, is the on set
    And it don't matter where you at
    If you white or if you black
    If you rich, or you poor, we gon' always want more
    But one thing I can be sure, as long as I got the floor
    I'm 'gon use this power to paint a picture of unity
    Yeah I'm rippin' it up with that energy like there's two of me
    Fuck the lights and the cameras, right now it's just you and me

    One day (one day)
    I'll be richer than I was before
    One day (one day)
    I'm 'gon have enough money to buy the store
    One day (one day)
    Like Sinatra said you know I'm finna do it my way
    You on the road to success, I took the highway

    And maybe one day I'll be wiser
    'Cause maybe one day I'll be further from here
    Put all of my faith in tomorrow
    Dark days keep me up all night
    Only thing I know, it's gonna be alright

    Yeah, feelin' just like I'm at mass
    Yeah, I'm comin' for that ass
    Game been broken too long, so I guess I am the cast
    Like my section 8 crib, finally found some greener grass
    So ahead of my time, I wasn't born in the past
    This right here a double-header with Logic and Ryan Tedder
    Oh no, it can't get no better
    And you know, we know we do it for the children
    I never thought I'd see the day I made a million
    A couple dozen later, feel like everybody feel 'em
    I ain't mean to boast in that last line
    But counting money's always been my favorite pastime
    Especially with a past like mine
    Drugs in the household
    Never had a hand to hold
    Even when I was homeless in the blistering cold, but I made it out
    And if I can, you can no doubt
    I know

    One day
    I'ma do it like I never did it
    One day
    I'ma have the courage to go out and get it
    One day
    Do what I love and support my girl
    One day
    I'ma shake up the whole world

    And maybe one day I'll be wiser
    'Cause maybe one day I'll be further from here
    Put all of my faith in tomorrow
    Dark days keep me up all night
    Only thing I know, it's gonna be alright

    (One day) Everybody tryna kill my light
    Only thing I know it's gonna be all right (one day)
    Everybody tryna kill my light
    Only thing I know it's gonna be all right (one day)
    Keep tryna tell myself in the morning things will be better (one day)
    Keep tryna tell myself tomorrow's different weather

    And maybe one day I'll be wiser
    'Cause maybe one day I'll be further from here
    Put all of my faith in tomorrow
    Dark days keep me up all night
    Only thing I know, it's gonna be Writer/s: Arjun Ivatury, Kevin Randolph, Robert Hall, Ryan Tedder, Zach Skelton
