I was Lost

I drop to my knees, scream out I believe
Living as a lost fool that’s no longer me
I believe.. I believe..

I had a friend I grew up with, he was pretty cool
We played sports together and hung out after school
My mama knew his mum, my papa knew his pops
We came from different places but we chillin’ on the same block
When all the people round us, started being fake
He would remain real and help me to avoid the hate
He used to say, “This world we should never chase
Cuz whatever’s good for us will come in a better place”
I hear you speak but I’m tryna make my dreams happen
My papa left my moms, so now I am the captain
My sisters and brothers are babies and they need me
I hustle in the streets cuz bro, it feeds me
Food on the table really helps my mama
Bills getting paid keeps the family out of drama
He forced me to leave the green thing, marijuana
A role model for the youngsters, what a man!

I drop to my knees, scream out I believe
Living as a lost fool that’s no longer me
I believe.. I believe..

He always told the truth, a real friend I never lied to
No matter what, he prayed to God, “Guide you”
He never judged me, he accepted me for who I was
Whenever I was at his family’s, they showed me love
When he would go and pray, the people looked at him like a stranger
Five times a day, he even prayed in the rain
Stayed in his lane, straight in his way
Keeping it real when he made something for God’s sake
See I would have his back and he would have mine
Stuck together, just in case people got out of line
He never did no trouble or hurt a soul
The message I received, I thought this was a joke
There was a car accident
And your buddy was involved

My knees have begun to shake, and then I took my coat
Is he gonna live or die, man I don’t know
I pray to God for you that there will be a hope
There will be a hope

I drop to my knees, scream out I believe
Living as a lost fool that’s no longer me
I believe.. I believe..

But I couldn’t help think about the last time I seen him
With everything that was going on, I felt like I was dreaming
It was just another day in the neighbourhood chilling
I said I would be back, He said “God willing”
Right after that I heard a crash and a scream
Everybody yelling, he was dead on the scene
A little baby ran into the streets and he saved her
She was blessed by the Creator, the Greater
Smile on his face as he died
Tears started falling from my eyes
Dear Lord can You hear me, help me please
To find the right path in this world, before I leave

I drop to my knees, scream out I believe
Living as a lost fool that’s no longer me
I believe.. I believe..
