LYRICS

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

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

MORE:  T-Pain (ft. Akon) – Bartender

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’ shit off till later

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)

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

MORE:  Akon – Lonely (Mr Lonely)

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

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)

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

MORE:  Usher – You Remind Me

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)
