lyrics

Yo, some days I feel like ain't got a leg to stand on
Months of therapy have barely got me stitched up
I lost my uncle, close friend, and my Grandmoms
All three in a period of six months

Just once I would like to have a convo
With someone who’s trynna bring some comfort and relief
Where they don't say, well I guess it was their time, bro
Like damn dawg, could you let a brother grieve?
Like, ain’t nobody seeing what I’m going through
They just want me back to same old me
Have faith? Oh please, I been in the O.T.
On my Psalm 88, on my J-O-B
In grey, in the grief, when the pain won’t cease
Grace integrates with it and it tastes so sweet
So nah it ain’t all happy like Pharrell sings
But God is in desert as much as the wellsprings

I don’t wanna wear the mask no more (no more)
I ain’t dwelling on the past no more (no more)
I’ma keep it real, that’s the only way to heal my soul
And that’s for sure (for sure)
I’ll keep it real with you, baby
I’ll keep it real with you, baby

When you say it’s all blessed but you crying in your heart
Is you living in the light or just hiding from the dark?
Being honest’s like diving with the sharks
Why risk getting ripped apart? Consider the cost
They could shun you, shame you. On the other hand,
God loves you, claims you as one of his fam
You could run to em, pray to em, he gon’ understood
Cause He walked through that pain too, scarred with the same wounds
When reality’s bleak we trynna augment it
But wait a minute, there’s freedom in being in authentic
In realizing I’m not alone and that y’all get it
I know I’m worthy of love because my God said it
Was hurting when I started writing these bars
Now I’m seeing the beauty in some frightening flaws
So when this life apply the pressure, take it like a massage
But when a feeling needs revealing, never tighten your jaws

I don’t wanna wear the mask no more (no more)
I ain’t dwelling on the past no more (no more)
I’ma keep it real, that’s the only way to heal my soul
And that’s for sure (for sure)
I’ll keep it real with you, baby
I’ll keep it real with you, baby
I’ll keep it real with you, baby
I’ll keep it real with you, baby
