Trae - Sittin' on Top of the World

rate me

[Hook x4]

Sitting on top of the world


I really wish that I was, sitting on top of the world

Cause lately I've been in my own zone, stressing so much I'm about to hurl

I don't wanna lose my focus, in case you ain't noticed it's hopeless

In the ghetto, cause niggaz'll hold you down and never let go

But I maintain, ducking and dodging the rain

Wishing one day I'll get away, and be on top of my game

Cause for Trae, everyday struggling is what I get to feel

If I feel anything else, I swear to God it wasn't real

So I mash on, and get my cash on

Fuck being broke, everyday I get my stash on

It ain't no telling, if I'ma get to see the better days

I would rather be living, so mama say I better pray

And forget what them niggaz say, I know they be hating mine

I've been stuck on bad luck, I don't think they want mine

So I remain, hoping God gon put me on top of his list

I'll probably never get to see it, so for now I sit and wish I was

[Hook x4]


My mentality of being broke, done got me trying to get it

But I don't rest, so everytime I touch the game I'll be the best and never less

I ain't got shit to lose, and I want the bottom to the top

So everyday I give it all I got, a hundred percent and never ever stop

I ain't gon quit for shit, even though my pain is forever

I lost a lot with paying dues, and tried to keep it together

It's like I'm zoning everyday, and then I'm lost in a daze

Since I'm addicted to reality, I'll be stuck in my ways

And I can't change it if I wanted to, with what I'm going through

It ain't nobody, trying to help me through

That's why my attitude be out of control, with all the time they gave my dog

I bet he losing it slow, but still I tell him not to fold

I'm gon ride for the team, and try to make it to the top

And if I never make it, least I'm still respected on the blocks

I know it ain't a lot, but in the hood I'll be a legend

Helping people make it through, they hard times for a blessing like I'm

[Hook x4]


I never knew, if I would end up being po'

And if folks but still I knew, that I would end up being realer than most

And maybe that explains, why I haven't made it yet

I can almost bet that you niggaz, don't get no respect

Selling your soul and playing dirty with the devil, I choose to be a rebel

Never teaming up with that sucker, cause I'm on another level

And it ain't too many on it, I promise I'm a loner

Ever since me and my brother separated, I've been goner

On the corner trying to get it, the best way I can

That's why I choose to get up and get out, and be a man

And it ain't no giving me respect, I'd rather take my own

And ain't no running from death, I'd rather be toting chrome

And I don't think that they wanna see me, on top of the world

Cause if they did then they would fear me, when I be stopping this world

From all the bullshit, these niggaz be filling it with

And if I can't, then I'ma never be calling it quits I wish I was
