I feel sick like a patient but imma be Spike Lee do the right thing just do it like Nike I been tryna find the light searchin’ in these bars Just as smart as tryna find some brand new life on mars Tired of failing all the time Use the same excuse Made so many damn mistakes and Blamed it on that goose Chorus Daylight find me Give me life Take my wrong And show me right x2
