You'll Never Know

Location

You'll never know

How desperately I always wanted to grow up

When my parents wouldn't let me act up

Only telling me to hush up,

Cause the kid I was, was never good enough.

Even when school got tough, I appeared so stong

Getting sucked in the drugs, although I knew I was wrong

I thought these bongs woul be lifelong

Cause I felt I belonged so I just went along

I never wished to prolong my stay here.

When I would overhear, of a world that was brighter

I wanted a diploma in my hand not another cigarette lighter

Stll my momma only saw a failure

My behavior hasn't changed

I still want a diploma in my hand not another cigarette lighter

But the dollars I have will never be enough,

I need a scholar, for this rough road.
