So Hard To Breathe
by B.o.B.



Since day one I said fuck the fame and everything it dealt
But the fame is really here just to facilitate the wealth
But the wealth attracts you haters like you mosquitoes to a well
And the waters getting deeper so I'm must set out to sail
Someone called my cell and left a voice mail
That said congratulations on the million record sales
As I'm flipping over furniture knocking shit off the shelf
I told myself I'll never get too deep to take a breathe
But I'm sinking

And it's so hard to breathe, yeah
And even more so to sleep when no one cares
It was all I can eat
But now I'm sinking
So deep, I can't come up for air

Yeah I've seen the valley of the shadow of death
I've seen the mountains, the wild childhood
That's why I sing about it
I just try to move on and keep my peace about it
But come to think about it I can't even count the days
What I've spent starving trying to find some decent housing
That's why I'm always smiling but on this beat I seem so violent
So ask me 'bout the music scene and what the fuck I think about it
Time flies, I guess that's why I'm bugging
Just yesterday I was rapping with my brother and my cousin
If you had the stove or toaster on you couldn't use the oven
We knew that we were struggling, we just acted like we wasn't
It's either make it rapping, if not that than hustlin'
So all I see is magazine covers in this game
You either surface or you plummet
It's a thin line and I'm just tryna keep my head above it
Damn

And it's so hard to breathe, yeah
And even more so to sleep when no one cares
It was all I can eat
But now I'm sinking, so deep, I can't come up for air

Air, I
I sink away, cause I sink away
I sink away
I sink away, I sink away
Get carried away, get carried away

And it's so hard to breathe, yeah
And even more so to sleep when no one cares
It was all I can eat
But now I'm sinking, so deep, I can't come up for air

Damn, it's never in the plans
But hey it's a long way from beating pots and pans
Damn, it's never in the plans
But hey it's a long way from beating pots and pans
Damn, it's never in the plans
But hey it's a long way from beating pots and pans
But now I'm sinking, so deep, I can't come up for air, air
