I remember looking at myself in the mirror, I ain't see my soul/
Looking at my friends knowing they ain't wanna see me grow/
Fornicating every night but digging in a deeper hole/
Suicidal thoughts I felt like who would care to see me go/
I was in that dark place, that devil want yo heart place/
That kill em while they young cuz we don't want the King to start place/
Fill em with that poison take the hope and give em despair/
Struggled to believe in God, for death I wasn't prepared/
But then one day I stepped into the light, had an epiphany/
Angels singing celebrating life playing the symphony/
I ain't gotta cry no more, I ain't gotta die no more/
I know who I belong to and I ain't trying to hide no more/


I done seen the mountains, I done seen the lows/
I done faced death many times before/
But I'm still alive/
Yea I'm still alive/
And no I don't deserve it but I thank God for His grace/
Shulda been dead but His son died in my place/
So I'm still alive/
Yea I'm still alive/


Un, and I love that feeling, post up in the hood let all y'all feel it/
Anybody can get it, no I ain't from the block, but I'm cut from the cloth/
To go hard with the Rock, never stop/
Till my soul separate from my inner/
I remember when my best friend died, swerved crashed head first into a burban/
I remember being in Iraq and them bombs going off, man I'm thankful for certain/
Cuz I'm living, and I'm breathing, and the reason, is beyond me/
So I'm living everyday like I might die today, somewhere spitting truth is where you'll find me/
Understand why I'm passionate cuz I'm still alive yea I'm still alive/
Cuz I shulda died so many times, shulda died so many times/
Man I wish I could take it all back, wish I could go back make it all better/
All the hearts that I broke, all the lies that I told, please take the pain before my heart explode!/
