SWAY - Still On My Own

rate me

(feat. Nate James)

[Intro:]

I'm only 23 but I feel like i'm older, Develped a hunchback from carryin the world on my shoulders

If the world (???) all hold us in the land of tony blair it's hard to BBC my dreams n stay focused

And i've always been a loner in the form of a trio the three amigos who? me, myself and I aint no (??)

N' aint nutin changed but ma size, and the fact im on the rise, it's two thousand and five

[Verse 1:]

I'm everybodys friend now, i'm everybodys cousin cuz i'm the up n' comer comin up i see him comin

to eat with the up n' comer

sleep with the up n' do songs with and try steal heat from the up n' comer

the only person I trust is my mother from day dot through all the ups n' coming down she supported me

she said that ima keep it, pregnant in secret, ignoring all the encouragements to have aborted me

family cursing me forgettin it coulda been worse remember i chose the beats over the streets

kept on tellin me to go to university it's all reversed now, now that i'm tipped to do well commercially

as for friends? we've moved on and grown up I used to rap with a crew called one,

we broke up now being solo only shows you who your true friends are when you invite them to shows but they dont show up

[Chorus:]

I don't wanna hear the cries no more

Find your dream i'm chasing mine

Give it all you got n strive for more

Lifes too short to waste my time n I look up at the sky and all I see; is I can only rely on me becuz at the end of the day i'm still on my own

[Verse 2:]

You mighta seen me standin on the streets tryna sell my CD's at five pound a pop it was me, X-I-LEM P

back to the studio to make another beat, no whip this was all done by fee then we called up michael merridith to get a good mix

he put it on a DAP, i put it on a DISC n we give it to the DJ's to throw to put it out and a little bit of DAT a little bit of DIS

[Verse 3:]

Lifes a bitch, in a relationship with time, sleepin wiv me on the side!

lay front of life is death n im a young dog tryna stay alive i look at life DOGGY STYLE!

there aint no stoppin me now no lookin back to when I was trapped between religions it wasn't simple

because I feared bending over backwards to get into heaven only to end up in limbo

n this is what im sayin now...

[Chorus: x2]

I don't wanna hear the cries no more

Find your dream i'm chasing mine

Give it all you got n strive for more

Lifes too short to waste my time n I look up at the sky and all I see is; I can only rely on me becuz at the end of the day i'm still on my own

n this is what im sayin now... (but last line not repeated the 2nd time)

[Song fades with vocal sounds]

Don't need nobody... gonna do it on my own.
