Just got out of jail and you don't know what to do
Seems like everyone has turned there back on you
And your, girlfriend's pregnant and she said, "She havin' it
But ain't no money comin' through, yeah"

Now there's a single mother at home tryna raise 3 kids alone
Workin' and goin' to school tryna make it on her own
She wants to start a business but it takes some months to raise kids
And a how will she ever find the time to provide the need?
And I'm tellin' her

Don't you give up on your dreams
You'll find the hope that you need
Things aren't as bad as they seem
Just keep fighting and you will be surely succeed

I see ya deep in the ghetto with no place else to go
He wants to be a doctor but everyone keeps sayin' no
But I have a solution that will settle this confusion
'Cause you can be whatever you wanna be
So I'm tellin' you

Don't you give up on your dreams
You'll find the hope that you need
Things aren't as bad as they seem
Just keep fighting and you will be surely succeed

Don't you give up on your dreams
You'll find the hope that you need
Things aren't as bad as they seem
Just keep fighting and you will be surely succeed

Keep your hands to the sky
Keep your hands to the sky

Don't you give up on your dreams
You'll find the hope that you need
Things aren't as bad as they seem
Just keep fighting and you will be surely succeed

Don't you give up on your dreams
You'll find the hope that you need
Things aren't as bad as they seem
Just keep fighting and you will be surely succeed

Don't you give up on your dreams
You'll find the hope that you need
Things aren't as bad as they seem
Just keep fighting and you will be surely succeed
