Phora – Weaknesses Lyrics

Yeah, sometimes I feel like giving up

Sometimes I feel I’m who they blame

Sometimes I feel like I ain’t good enough

But I just look back at how far I came

Sittin’ on my mama’s couch, sippin’ on a 40 ounce

All my family had was debt and overdrawn bank accounts

I never though I’d make it out, cousin tried to slang an ounce

Everywhere I went they always had shit to complain about

So I took my own route to see where life would take me

I didn’t know much but I knew no one could replace me

All I had was music man and that’s the shit that saved me

See this life is so crazy but I never let it change me

Cause the hood ain’t never had our back

Streets ain’t never had our back

Left us in the dust to rot what kind of f**kin’ love is that

I rock my dirty Chucks cause they was all I ever had

In junior high they called’em dirty looked at me and laughed

Couldn’t sit with the kids with Jordans all they did was brag

Made me feel like less than a man cause I wasn’t popping tags

But momma said what you got inside is what matters

Now people ask why I decide to live my life as a rapper

But I ain’t rapping I’m telling my story writing in chapters

I let my pen bleed on a page preach on the mic like a pastor

I’m past the bullshit and the drama, gave my life up to god

Just a story of a young kid fighting the odds

Look, yeah, gave my life up to god, just a story of a young kid

See what they tell you it don’t mean nothing homie

Long as you know I believe in you homie

Cause we all got weaknesses homie

Don’t let them stop you from dreamin’ it homie

And what they tell you it don’t mean nothing homie

Long as you know I believe in you homie

Cause we all got weaknesses homie

Don’t let them stop you from dreamin’ it homie

Yeah, this dream ain’t come to me I had to go and chase it

Yeah I know I got my flaws but I got no replacements

I know the past is the past we just can’t go and change it

So I dedicate this to my brother who just couldn’t make it

Now I wash my pain away with Hennessy and Ace of Spades

Trynna take it day by day (Watching friends fade away)

Cause I guess people switch up when you least expect them to

I never lost the love I just lost my respect for you

Yeah I have my demons and I have my share of secrets

But having a heart and soul was my only f**kin’ weakness

And my girl she want to leave and I don’t blame her she got her reasons

But it’s hard for me to trust anybody

She said she leaving and that’s what she did

Sometimes this life doesn’t give people a chance to forgive

They say that no one really know what true happiness is

But just remember man you only get back what you give

(Back what you give)

And to my lil homie sittin’ in the park smokin’ a blunt alone

Goin’ through some bullshit with your moms

You had to run from home

Feel like no one understands but trust me man I f**kin’ know

(I f**kin’ know)

Cause I was scared to be a loser, scared that I would fail

Scared that I’d be six feet under ground or in a cell

Sometimes we hide behind this mask so scared to be ourselves

So scared that they can tell that we scared to live in this hell

But lately I’m dreamin’ of heaven, gave my life up to god

Just a story of a young kid fighting the odds

Look, yeah, gave my life up to god, just a story of a young kid

See what they tell you it don’t mean nothing homie

Long as you know I believe in you homie

Cause we all got weaknesses homie

Don’t let them stop you from dreamin’ it homie

And what they tell you it don’t mean nothing homie

Long as you know I believe in you homie

Cause we all got weaknesses homie

Don’t let them stop you from dreamin’ it homie

I was always down to ride, no matter what would happen

Me I always had your back through the toughest traction

We was talkin’ bout this rap shit like just imagine

A stadium packed with fans, yeah that was our f**kin’ passion

You look out for me, and I’ll look out for you

If you down with me then shit I’m down with you

All I ask for is loyalty respect me like a brother

See we from the same place nigga that’s how we do

We ran the streets lookin’ for something to find

Drinking 40’s just to kill time and the stress on my mind

Plus we had a lot in common

All this anger there was plenty in me

Shit it’s hard to feel that pain with all this Henny in me

I miss the way it was just me and the homies

But nowadays everything’s different I can’t help but feel lonely

I’ll never forget those memories or things that you showed me

Cause the day before you passed you told me

See what they tell you it don’t mean nothing homie

Long as you know I believe in you homie

Cause we all got weaknesses homie

Don’t let them stop you from dreamin’ it homie

And what they tell you it don’t mean nothing homie

Long as you know I believe in you homie

Cause we all got weaknesses homie

Don’t let them stop you from dreamin’ it homie
