The minute of life, you wasted staying.
Saying that you hate it all, and no use praying.
Where you are in lock, but the mind is decaying
Whether save yourself or someone else,
Can’t stay alone in your basement
Wondering where the happiness in this place went,
Where the smile on your face went.
Is the smile on your face spent?

You, I take you serious.
I know my nephew would, cause he wanted to too,
And he did.
And that’s not what I want for you.

So please, you can get through this–maybe not the way that I did–
But not everyone gravitates to the movement of the music.
But know, you’re not stupid, you’re way more than a double degree.
Something happened along the way,

that’s how you met me.

And I am not going to let you down.
Everyone else might have given up on you, but not me,
I’m still around.

You got this…you can get through it.
Move out on your own man, get on with it.
And the other idea is not even an option, don’t do it.
Listen to the steady beat of the rain drops.
You can do this.
