Emtee I Try Lyrics

Correct Lyrics
[Emtee - I Try lyrics]
(I try) to do what I can
And give you the best of me
(I try) I'd do anything for you
'cause you were there for me
(when I cried) I swear for real
To be a good kid to the folks
Mama just look at what I've become
It's such a feeling to know I'm your son
Mama just look at what I've become
It's such a feeling to know I'm your son

[Verse 1]
So many people have changed on me
Less love but the hate on fleek
I ain't never been a fake, homey
They putting a lotta weight on me
But that's nothing, I'm that youngin
Gangstas love me and I got the trap jumping
Pull up at the field, dabbing with the kids
Give them a little hope
Yeah now that's something
Man I've been through the worst
The pain and the stress and the hurt
Told myself this ain't what I deserve
Had to make sure a youngin was heard
Through the hunger the drought and the thirst
I was close to laying in a herse
It's funny how I got saved by these verses
Show respect my name written in cursive
I prayed I them churches
Mama was there for me, some homies didn't care for me
But that helped me choose friends carefully
I was never treated specilly
Ngavuka ngaphanda, lasuka lahlala
Bes' pusha ngamandla, bevus' amacala
Umama ekhala kunzima nok'lala, bedum' amakhanda


[Verse 2]
Regular niggas be hating on me
They congratulate lowkey
Acting like they know me
Like we back-in-the-day homies
I'm living my dream, hope Manando can see me
I wish lefatshe was easy
They ask for money they saw me on TV
When all I wanna do is give to the needy
I never had nothing how can I be greedy
I'm working hard, I don't want a freebie
Ng'phuz' ilean ngamacup amabini
On the beach overseas naboMini

I've been thinking 'bout it ubthongo ab'fiki
I have big dreams nami I'm trying to run my city
You don't know what it takes to be the king yeah
I put my son and fam over everything yeah
Ngyazama nah, noma bedlala ngami
K'yafana man, siyaspana la
Nawe uyabona siyazama-zama, s'yenza amaplani
