lyrics

all this time you spent/
all that love you gave/
please don’t walk away/
try again/
goes to those who wait
don’t break before your break/
It’s not to late/
To try again/

Couple wins couple L’s/
Took a hit but I prevailed/
Now I got the gist on how to flip it when I fail/
Different when you listen to yourself/
Not forgotten but forgiving/
How you’re living is the wisdom in itself/
Getting help/
My intention and my callous never been in Balance/
It’s a challenge when your talent comes equipped with damage/
Getting callus to what matters and you’ll miss a pattern/
How to manage a condition is the trick to catch it/
How to handle what you’re given is a different manor/
Skip the magic it don’t happen over night/
You don’t have to over write/
When’s it’s sounding how you didn’t plan it/
Understanding I ain’t got it when I gave it all I had/
Nothing missing in the math but division on the path/
I’m revisioning the past with a pen pad, I’ll be back/

I hope you try again/
all this time you spent/
all that love you gave/
please don’t walk away/
try again/
goes to those who wait
don’t break before your break/
It’s not to late/
To try again/


Underdog since when I use to run a blog/
I ain’t soft I could bend a hoop and run in clogs/
Under fog where I learned to view the sun as small/
No sweat when you getting use to jumping walls/
Back when I use to call instead of getting called/
I remember feeling lost bout to get a job/
Selling tree in the mall trying to chip a log/
had to ask if it cost ever getting caught/
Changed course, had to bang doors/
Now them same doors got a man that waits for us/
Hand shake still cause my manors ain’t lost/
I don’t floss when I kill cause I plan to stay raw/
Had to take deals that ain’t have a rate sealed/
Just to have a plate filled now I’d rather take off/
Remember when it feels like you gotta stay still/
If the lines ain’t crossed/

I hope you try again/
all this time you spent/
all that love you gave/
please don’t walk away/
try again/
goes to those who wait
don’t break before your break/
It’s not to late/
To try again/
all this time you spent/
all that love you gave/
please don’t walk away/
try again/
goes to those who wait
don’t break before your break/
It’s not to late/
To try again/
