lyrics

I reinvented myself
Can’t repeat the same mistakes is what I said to myself
When everybody left me stranded I was there for myself
Looking in the mirror proud like I’m here for myself

For real I came and saw,
Hope my son don’t imitate my flaws
Far from perfect and I’ll be the first to name my faults
See everything disintegrate from the case I caught
Cold cell time to face my thoughts
You see the lane I’ve forged, heavy burdens and I paid my cost
Frontline had to gain my props
I really went to war with killers, really used to pray for warmer dinners
You know the saying what makes us strong is never gonna kill us
I want my flowers while I’m still here
Party at my funeral, no I wanna see tears
Celebrate my life dressed in all white,
Tell the DJ keep my records playing all night
I go into a trance when I prophesise
My life’s mad, I can’t break it down I just hypothesise
Yeah I used to kill the down when I dropped the price
Lock the spot, ran them breddas off and we cut the ties

I reinvented myself
Can’t repeat the same mistakes is what I said to myself
When everybody left me stranded I was there for myself
Looking in the mirror proud like I’m here for myself

I remember when they cut the lights
We used candles just to light the rooms
Empty cupboards, felt like life was doomed
Always knew that I’d be out there soon
Thinking ‘bout my future, will I even see 21
Or will my life fade back to black, on an Amy one
Bullet wound in my arm, yeah he gave me one
Had to scratch him out, that’s how the game is won
You don’t know the half, I can’t trust him I don’t know his heart
Sister told me keep your head up, yeah I know it’s hard
Got my sentence, judge really had no regards
Was thinking that I’ll never go to yard
But despite the journey, I made it here on my own accord
Got a title in my name, I’m an owner dawg
Who’d have ever thought this kid was gonna hold awards
Hold on let me lower my sword

I reinvented myself
Can’t repeat the same mistakes is what I said to myself
When everybody left me stranded I was there for myself
Looking in the mirror proud like I’m here for myself
