Jealousy is dangerous. It spawns in various faces. It's worse when people grow apart and gain distance. People I grew up with now some are like strangers, when they directly impact who I am now...and ironically why our worlds aren't the same anymore.


We were cool once/ now we enemies/ it was business/ and she was kin to me/ so that means/ I was wasting my energies/ stuck at the start/ and never ever finishing/ so when I finished last/ I should've finished first/ sky high/ but you know the saying about nice guys/ Gonna finish last/ luck never cross his path/ treat her like a doormat/he'll just ignore that/ that ain't right so you gotta stand tall/ you gotta have a spine balance/ so you don't fall/ say good day to the Divas/ and good morning to the sun/ say goodnight when I light/ see a star just begun/ i'm shining off the nightlife silver-lining/ im praying that the Lord provide perfect timing/ if you don't see me banging/ trust me I'm still grinding/ and you can spill your guts/ but I choose to hold mine's in/

Hook: You ain't gotta lie to me/ Tell me the truth if you hate me/ You ain't gotta lie to me/ Think I won't succeed I got one phrase for you/ (repeat)

Say what you say cuz what you say's yo business/ respect's earned and given like money and friendship/ We was together both stuck in the trenches/ I guess from your side I had provisions/ you had decisions/ you made yo distance/ talking face to face but the feel is different/ I feel the distance/ I 'm thinking is you judging me/ cuz I didn't fall far/ the devil still nudging me/ If it was up to me/ luxury and privacy/ up to you maybe larceny and piracy/ I ain't mad though to each his own/ and it's funny how you stopped me from being gone/ I changed to chasing paper from days of chasing skirts/ from holding a mall job/ to holding too much work/ now I'm grown I see our roles reversed/ I just pray that by the hook you ain't laying in a hearse/


Bridge: So who's real/ are you real/ are you facing reality/ Or making up a life/ as you balancing/ Making up life tight rope balancing/

Me myself I'll tell the world a that I'm broke/ but I gotta bad broad/ and a pocket full of hope/ got a past of regrets/ and a closet full of skeletons/ look from the inside tell me if you jealous then/ Pops a fiend/ sweet georgia brown creme/ I got rich cousins that I don't never see/ and a brother over seas / hope God dont' take him cuz/ I got a nephew that needs a father to raise em/ grandma about to to pass I feel it and she telling me/ The rent's behind and my mama ain't telling me/ you get blowed right before you shed a tear/ try being stressed out and you can't afford a Beer/
