Repeat Chorus. x1
Repeat Verse. x1
It's like I'm takin five steps forward, and ten steps back
Tryna get ahead of the game but I can't seem to get it on track
And I keep runnin away the ones that say they love me the most
How could I create the distance when it's supposed to be close? And uh,
I just don't know but I be out here fightin demons and
It's like the curse that I can't shake this part of Cleveland and
Lord, would you help me? And stop this pain
I keep inflinctin on my family (family)
Hustlin and gamblin, drinkin' and scramblin'
And losin sight of what I supposed to be handlin'
It's hard to manage cause every days a challenge and man
And I'm slippin can't lose my balance and tryin not to panic
Repeat Chorus. x1
Repeat Verse. x1
I see thangs won't change (wont change) I'm stuck in the game
As soon as I get out it keeps pullin me back man (pullin me back man)
Got me doin' dirty dirt, so used to this hustlin money,
That I don't understand no nine to five work
Studied on the streets, hustlas know what I mean
Thugstas ballin' before us I'm tryna make that major league
So we never leave never till the sun came up (came up)
Gotta get it nope, no leavin, no grudge (no grudge) today games they play gotta go hard 
what you put in, if you fall off then its all on you (on you) gotta watch what you sign too,
try so hard but I won't act a fool.

Repeat Verse. x1


Author's Notes
So, It really doesn't look like i speant much time on this tab.
But I really did! It took me forever because i play by ear not by music.
I had to keep checking my playing and stuff and it was horrible.
I don't want anyone to take this tab and use it as their own.
This is my own work and you will be cought using it as your own.
You can play it, you can do cover videos. But whatever you do,
always credit the author. That's music for you people and
it's the law. So anyways enjoy this tab and have fun learning it.
