touch the sky lyrics – jin

say something

yo check, ain’t no surprise in me
everything looks good as far as i can see
in this world no such thing as rise for free
i’m ’bout to take it as far as the eyes can see
and beyond, feelin’ like i never got on
18 again and i just left home
used to get by on my high school charm
before i was hot they said i was lukewarm
time to double check, with my monitor
temperature risin’ like a shiner does
chased little bit of fame, had a mindin’ buzz
never quite sure what my persona was
yet they still felt they need to judge
it’s all good, i ain’t one to hold a grudge
didn’t then, so why would i now?
i’m sayin’ hate is just not my style
back the challenge is what children do
in fact i would much rather bear with you
near a decade ago since i first came through
all i ever did was keep it real with you
i been lucky or should i say blessed, yes
you will hardly find me stress
seen my fair share of challenge in times
i thank god for givin’ me the talent to shine
even when i did make mistakes
you still managed to forgive with amazing grace
just when i thought hope disappeared
you pulled me out the pins, it’s crystal clear
all i’m here to do is serve you
i was gone, now i’m much at home like i missed curfew
started as a boy, then shaped to a man
i just wanna tell ’em how grateful i am
like an orphan who just got adopted
a homeless man who finds a 20 in his pocket
like kanye when he climbed out that jeep
in the studio when he cooked up this beat
it’s only right, i surrend it to you
my life is yours, lord do what you do
you’re the truth, everything else is just a lie
let the beat drop so i can touch the sky

i said touch the sky
say something
say something
