Sometimes your heart speaks the loudest.

lyrics

Honestly had to step away for a minute...
You gave me everything I ever wanted but I wanted more...
I don't think she knew everything I was coming for...
Had to put myself in the position of winning...
Had I...stay...
My heart wouldn't have felt justified...
Figured me leaving be subsidized...
I just want the world to hear me...
I don't think you n***** feel me...listen...

Forever had this notion of making it...taking the game...
Minus the lights just the fortune and fame...then the fortunate came...
My n**** told me I could live with him to grow...
So I packed the car and drove...
Goodbye momma ima make you proud...have these fans screaming my name loud...
Girls never gave me the time...hitting my page now...
I was knee deep in my shorty...playing it safe...
Didn't think the distance would shorten the space...
I didn't...stay...
She wanted me to get it too...
She told me chase my dreams...and maybe one day it be me and you...
Blamed the state of naive...but didn't think much of it...
We played it low key...underneath of the public...
Half way to my destination...no turning back...
Without a hesitation...tank full of determination....
Couple hundred in my name...for the love of the game...
And no safety net...I never would have learned pain had I....stay

Comfortable living...but you can only grow...
If youre taken out of your comfort zone...
Figured me leaving would be a physical test...
Separate from my n***** to prove to them ima be great for my n*****...
Didn't wanna walk the same line twice...had to be out...
And Cali was it for me...rest is his-story...
Can you hear me...
I don't think you n***** feel me...listen...

Me and G going back and forth about the way to do it...
Both us never knew it...
Would be the much harder...figured I'm that much nicer...
Ima go that much farther...just another face...
In this tight living space...nights I felt alone...
I would smoke a bone and reminisce...getting a grip...
Tried to write it all down but my thoughts werent mending...
Good thing the LA.VA. tape was pending...my time...
At the j-o-b...searching these open mics...
Couple shows booked...nobody there...didn't suffice...
And the person I could relate about it was only Bub...
He had a different path plus I figured my craft...
Wasn't close enough to his staff but he brought me around...
Losing my mind tryna cypher the town...
From Van Nuys to Riverside...Newport to Anaheim...
Going from Canibus...to can I rhyme...
In my mind...my hindsight was blind...in the slime...
Couldn't find a studio to record what I designed...
G begging me come back...my heart said never quit...
My health said slow down...my mind said this is it...
My family health issues...moms calling concerned...
Lied about it all...my pockets was slow burned...
Can you hear me....
I don't think you n***** feel me....

I spent the holidays alone..
Thanksgiving in Vegas was the greatest but Christmas day...
I was missing babe...New Year's Eve I was missing fam...
Skype the countdown...sipping liquer...
Was an escape for everything around...
No tragedy...
Just slowing falling apart...missing my art...
Rejuvenated once I came back off vacay...
Major setbacks...wasnt for play...
I'm borrowing money from now my girlfriend...staying afloat...
Behind on rent and other bills...
Told Carl I'll hit him back once I got my feet under me...
Sleeping on air...feeling alone around company...
Look...
N***** tried to steal my car and left a f****** mess...
Had to sell it for what was left...
Job on that BS...furlough making the bank slimmer...
Funny how I seen my summer turn into winter...
My eyes start shading...drowning in the bottle...
Downtown Fullerton nights...and slight fights...
F*** skirts I'm just chasing these dreams...
I'd do it twice...
Told myself I'd be back to savor these lights...
But for you...I had to make a return to clarity...
And to my fans...bare with me...
I hope you n***** feel me...
Goodbye Cali sincerely...
And to Virginia I'ma...stay...
