I Tried
by Jadakiss



[Chorus: Avery Storm]
Everyday there's something in my way. I try
Shit ain't going right I try to see the light. I try
Oh, it's like my eyes got a cover on em and something holding me back
A better man better level better know I try

[Jadakiss]
Yeah yo, Listen I done played with the snakes in the grass
Paid for my mistakes I made in the past
Everybody ate when I came wit the cash
At least I tried to ride the wave till it crashed
Same wood on the gun handle is on the dash
All the hoods that son ran through is on smash
They can't identify you wit a mask
And the bible I'll tell you nothing is gonna last
The name of the game's survival
If you make it alive when you ride through they make it arrival
My boo is gon' ride you know I am gon' ride too
Make an M every day I am gon' try to
Let's go

[Chorus]

[Jadakiss]
Yeah yo, I tried to tell niggas I am willing to blast for it
I only try to give it to niggas that ask for it
Got them things on the scale I am still weighing em
Thought my dues was paid I am still paying em
Couple Elanor's and the Goose I am still baying em
Semi's and the fulli's know that the truth stay wit em
Wolves and gorillas is loose so don't play with em
Something's holding em back there's nothing that you can say to em
Popped champagne wit biggie at the palladium
Put that good hawk work in with the titanium's
Shit switch around when them heats get fired
And ya peeps just died but I least he tried Let's go

[Chorus]

[Jadakiss]
Yeah,
Watch the game get taken over
I am still on the same side of the fence I am just looking over
A solider from the gravel to the grass
To the obstacles in life I travel in the past
Whether I am holding a mic or holding a mac
It's like an invisible force is holding me back
But I ain't letting go of my pride
After I get the dough I slide
Better know I tried, let's go

[Chorus]

[Bridge: Avery Storm]
Here come another day up on me
Put the pressure on me here we go again ah
I try to do what's right when life is so wrong
I want a better way, I see a better day
'Nough with the people said I want a better me
God knows that I try but time won't wait for me

[Chorus]
