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.
