Believe

Album: Yet to be titled (2020)
  • You know I still believe, still believe in you and me
    'Cause every night I to sleep, go to sleep
    I can see it like a movie in my dreams
    Put my face in the dirt on the ground
    Still I raise up to take back the crown, yes
    You can break my body
    But you can't lock the soul of a man down

    Yeah, uh
    Follow your dreams, not your addictions
    How we gon' follow our dreams locked in a prison?
    They tried to swallow me whole, God be my witness
    Deprive me outta my dreams but I'm relentless
    I want the money ain't never want attention
    So I don't pay attention to comments and all the mentions
    'Cause they ain't see my vision
    I was washin' dishes, 'til my rags turned into riches
    Glad when it was Christmas
    We ain't even barely get presents, but we was gifted
    In the school of failure, we present, perfect attendance
    Welfare, baby, we workin' with what they give us
    Made me some commas, judge still gave me a sentence
    No period, city girls don't get scared
    When it's really real, when your bank account
    Twenty mill' and your house up on the hill and your fam
    In the driveway you walk out and see the grill, thank God
    You believe, make sure you pray when you kneel, yeah

    You know I still believe, still believe in you and me
    'Cause every night I to sleep, go to sleep
    I can see it like a movie in my dreams
    Put my face in the dirt on the ground
    Still I raise up to take back the crown, yes
    You can break my body
    But you can't lock the soul of a man down

    Yeah, uh
    My bank account, it was on super-zero
    Ain't never panic, I'm a superhero, uh
    Target my goals and I'ma shoot the arrow
    When God turned the heat up on me, he said "You Di Nero"
    Play your part, got some brains like the scarecrow
    Let's play it smart, 'cause we can't playin' checkers
    This is chess, play your pawns
    Sit back like a king, when they move, make your mark
    And never ever let your competition take your heart (take your heart)
    Say I believe in myself
    When everybody stop believin', never leave on yourself
    They had my back against the wall, I had to lean on myself
    Almost made me put my dreams on the shelf, I'm trippin' (I'm trippin')
    Laws of attraction, you just think I'm rappin'
    I'm just puttin' out the energy so I can grab it
    Everything that's in my memory that I imagined
    It's finally here, hundred million in a year

    I still believe, still believe in you and me
    'Cause every night I to sleep, go to sleep
    I can see it like a movie in my dreams
    Put my face in the dirt on the ground
    Still I raise up to take back the crown, yes
    You can break my body
    But you can't lock the soul of a man down

    As I lay (as I lay) me down to sleep (down to sleep)
    Pray the Lord (pray), my soul to keep (soul to keep)
    Fallen ones (fallen ones), rest in peace (R.I.P)
    Please God, (watch over me) (watch over me)
    As I lay (as I lay) me down to sleep (down to sleep)
    Pray the Lord (pray), my soul to keep (soul to keep)
    Fallen ones (fallen ones), rest in peace (R.I.P)
    Please God, (watch over me) Writer/s: Benjamin Johnson, Justin Timberlake, Robert Williams, Robin Tadross
