Stuck between a rock and a hard place Calling it over thinking of your sleep How can I do it if I try? I should have known it from the last time One can dream I saw a young G sitting on the wall Had a gun in his bag on the way from school I told him, "If you get life you're a fool" Then he said something that stuck with me He said, "I'd rather do life, than have none at all" He said, "Krept, you made it out fam, you're cool" He said "Me, I slip once, then I'm through You'd do the same if you was in my shoes" I said, "Bro, I'm just tryna keep you alive I'm sick of funerals, another suit and tie How do you expect me to tell a young G Put down the guns? That could be suicide For him it's kill or be killed, fam it's do or die He said, "Krept, I don't even like this stuff But I'm in too deep, fam, I'm kinda fucked I can't think straight when man are tryna line me up" Just visited my boy today doing life for a crime where he didn't do shit He said, "Krept, what's good, how's the music?" Didn't wanna gass it up too much You know he's stuck doing life, he might lose it Wishing he was out living life for the movement When the MOBOs said we were the winners, he told the whole jail "Brap, that's my niggas" Happy but heartbroken at the same time cause he knows he would have been on the stage with us Man this cold world could be so vicious Put your hands together and pray with us Need to see my family more So busy that they probably think that I don't love 'em Probably telling people I forgot about my cousins He's gone to Hollywood now, man so f*ck him Man I'm stuck Stuck between a rock and a hard place Calling it over thinking of your sleep How can I do it if I try? I should have known it from the last time One can dream Caught up in the same things it's giving me life One can dream My mind will erase these memories, say goodbye In New York I met my big sis for the first time (first time), imagine that I'm 24, it's the first time she sees me Before he died, promised dad that she'd meet me I know it ain't been easy, and I can't stay for the whole night She hugged me with tears in her eyes And said she wished that he still was alive (alive) She said, your mum sent you Jamaica (Jamaica) She told me you came back ill (back ill) Yeah I know you ain't been back still But you know your friend over there got killed (got killed, killed) I know she always had love for me (love for me) Then she said something that stuck with me (stuck with me) "Dad said you gotta keep the music alive" Then she gave the the look like it's up to me (up to me, up to me) It hit me hard, didn't show it though Thinking 'bout it on the plane, going home (going home) Growing up without my dad ever round It's on me and I can't let him down (let him down, let him down) Before I stepped out the house My niece said "Make sure you come back again" Then I started thinking 'bout the hearts that I broke Praying that the karma don't come back on them (on them, on them) We spoke about everything (everything) And how his wife's tryna take everything (everything, everything) All the inheritance (inheritance) All because he gave her a wedding ring So God forgive me for the minor things Cause you'll risk everything when you're tryna win And I can't go back, but the more I move forward The more I start losing the sight of things (Dream chasing) stuck between a rock and a hard place Calling it over thinking of your sleep How can I do it if I try? I should have known it from the last time One can dream Caught up in the same things it's giving me life One can dream My mind will erase these memories, say goodbye (say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye) One can dream (dream, dream, dream)
