So I'm gone close my eyes and I'm gone live my life.Despite what you think I'm gone be free 'cause I gone be me.(2x) 

see I ain't never think I would have a situation where the people around me just envy I'm gone replace them.see I always thought the people that watch me grow would'nt want to see me blow fa'sho but little did I know.they ain't neva really wanna see me smiling.they could'nt take the fact that I was really shining.and in my heart I knew they was wishing I was out 'cause they don't me to rise and be on top.and all that jealousy and hate can be right in front of your face and its gone hurt for you to see but it ain't your fault just let it be.so I'm gone close my eyes and I'm gone live my life despite what you think I'm'a be free 'cause I'm'a be me.(2x) 
See everybody wanna have something to talk about so they pointing their fingers and always running their mouth.no matter how you try to satisfy someone else giving so much of yourself yo love but its never enough.the more you give them the more want they ain't happy, and they don't see all you do to make them happy they don't appreciate it till you walk away but you don't want to hear by now its to late. 
And all that jealousy and hate can be right in front of your face and its gone hurt for you to see but it ain't your fault just let it be. 
So I'm gone close my eyes and I'm gone live my life despite what you think I'm'a be free 'cause I'm'a be me.(2x) 
What they don't understand is that I'm'a keep livin my life and surving I'm'a keep pushing and striving and climbing and grinding 'cause ain't no time to be crying I been providing with the strength to carry my way(carry my way) 
And I'm'a be ok(im gone be ok) 'cause I'm gone live my life my way and you can say what you wanna say.it won't affect the way I'm living I'm winnign by being free again(yeah) 
So I'm gone close my eyes and I'm gone live my life despite what you think I'm'a be free 'cause I'm'a be me.(2x)
