T.I. ft. Chris Brown – Get Back Up

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 3:55 pm by LynxLee

Stumbled upon this awesome track while I was reading on some career tips. Pick it up, pick it up. T.I. Apology track after he got sentenced to 11 months in prison. This is lyrics at it’s best.

Get Back Up
Ay, what it is World
yeah it’s me again, back before you, at your mercy
don’t bend your knee again, no running from the truth
as much as we pretend, that it aint what it is, than it hits CNN
apologies to my fans and my closest friends, (I’m sorry)
for letting you down, I wont take you down this road again
most of you now saying whatever, here we go again
blogs, radio, and television all going in
I laugh to keep from crying through all of the embarrasment
I gotta say you f-cking haters is hilarious
how dare you sit right there and act as if you holier than thou
point your finger now with me looking down
same clown that was twitpic’ing at my wedding
on the same twitter page disrespecting
wait a second (hold up)
never mind my imperfections this is fact, remember that
no mistakes too great to recover and bounce back

I admit, yeah, I done some dumb sh-t,
disappointed everybody I know
try not to hold that against me though
my road to redemption has no GPS
so guess the time must be invested for this to be manifested
yes it’s hard living life in the spotlight
trying to dodge the haters same time as the cop light
the bible say “let he without sin cast the stone first” (stone first)
the sinner or the one who judged him, who was wrong first?
yeah he go to work, never done no drugs or to be fair
he just drink his liquor, touch his kids, beat his wife instead
difference is, my shortcomings hit the media
thanks to TMZ, the AJC and Wikipedia
see the stairway to heaven while stepping down Jacob’s ladder
my good outweigh the bad, God, aint that what really matters, nope
a matter of fact I’m wrong but after that the good i’ve done in your hood
should it overshadow that?
got the World laughing at me for the moment
but it gonna be your turn ‘fore it’s over with
even if you so legit that you get a house with a dog and a picket fence
the people with you then but when they turn on you remember this

ay, ay, ay listen to me
And when they push you down,
you got to get back up
And when they push you down,
you got to get back up

[T.I]
I’m only human dawg
I’m only human dawg
I’m only human dawg

[Chris Brown]
Can you forgive me
It’s an SOS to let me be me

[T.I]
ay, ay, ay listen to me
And when they push you down,
you got to get back up
And when they push you down,
you got to get back up

[T.I]
Push the dirt off your jersey than go for the cup
or the trophy or the ring, champion no matter what
cause when you got the belt and the ring
people with ya poppin bottles, taking pictures look around
as soon as you fall down all the haters pass a judgement
surprise, i’m here to show that I’ma rise above this

Ay, what it is World
yeah it’s me again, back before you, at your mercy
don’t bend your knee again, no running from the truth
as much as we pretend, that it aint what it is, than it hits CNN
apologies to my fans and my closest friends, (I’m sorry)
for letting you down, I wont take you down this road again
most of you now saying whatever, here we go again

[Chris Brown]
Hello, out there
can you hear me
can you hear me
ah, ah, ah, ah
can you (hear you)
hello, out there,
can you hear me
you gotta get you
you gotta gotta believe in me
hey

[T.I]
I accept full responsibilty for the all the wrong I’ve done
If y’all thought I were perfect
I apologise for being human man
but never again partner
you can put my life on that

[Chorus]

And you can love me, or you can leave me
before you judge me, just let me be me
and you can love me or either leave me
before you judge me, see life aint easy
[End]

Herbie Hancock ft. Pink & John Legend – Don’t Give Up

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 2:32 pm by LynxLee

Just got back from a vacation/birthday trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Such a peaceful place where everyone is so calm. Once I got back, I got disappointed at something. Felt down, searched YouTube and got this song as a good mood lifter. Here, God’s sending you a message. I get it. I’ll try harder.

Enjoy this peaceful track. Cheers.

Imagine ProjectRest your head
You worry too much
It’s going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don’t give up
Please don’t give up

Don’t give up
‘cos you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not beaten yet
Don’t give up
I know you can make it good

In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose

Don’t give up
‘cos you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not beaten yet
Don’t give up
I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we’d be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Don’t give up
You still have us
Don’t give up
We don’t need much of anything
Don’t give up
’cause somewhere there’s a place

Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
It’s going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don’t give up
Please don’t give up

‘got to walk out of here
I can’t take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river’s flowing
That river’s flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Don’t give up
’cause you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not the only one
Don’t give up
No reason to be ashamed
Don’t give up
You still have us
Don’t give up now
We’re proud of who you are
Don’t give up
You know it’s never been easy
Don’t give up
’cause I belïeve there’s the a place
There’s a place where we belong
