I Tried (Album Version)

I Tried (Album Version)

Jadakiss

Everyday, somethin' in my way, I try
Shit ain't goin' right, I try to see the light, I try
It's like my eyes got a cover on 'em
And somethin' holdin' me back
A better man, better level, better know, I try

Yeah yo, listen, I done played with the snakes in the grass
Paid for my mistakes I made in the past
Everybody ate when I came wit the cash
At least I tried to ride the wave till it crashed

Same wood on the gun handle is on the dash
All the hoods that son ran through is on smash
They can't identify you wit a mask
And the Bible will tell you nothin' is gonna last

The name of da game's survival
If you make it alive when you ride through, they make it arrival
My boo is gon' ride, you know I am gon' ride, too
Make an M everyday, I am gon' try to, let's go

Everyday, somethin' in my way, I try
Shit ain't goin' right, I try to see the light, I try
It's like my eyes got a cover on 'em
And somethin' holdin' me back
A better man, better level, better know, I try

Yeah yo, I tried to tell niggas I'm willin' to blast for it
I only try to give it to niggas that ask for it
Got them things on the scale, I'm still weighin' 'em
Thought my dues was paid, I'm still payin' 'em

Couple Elanor's and the Goose I am still payin' 'em
Semi's and the fulli's know that the truth stay wit 'em
Wolves and gorillas is loose so don't play with 'em
Somethin's holdin' 'em back, nothin' that you could say to 'em

Popped champagne wit Biggie at the Palladium
Put that good hawk work in with the titaniums
Shit switch around when them heats get fired
And ya peeps just died but I least he tried, let's go

Everyday, somethin' in my way, I try
Shit ain't goin' right, I try to see the light, I try
It's like my eyes got a cover on 'em
And somethin' holdin' me back
A better man, better level, better know, I try

Yeah, watch the game get tooken over
I am still on the same side of the fence, I am just lookin' over
A solider from the gravel to the grass
To the obstacles in life I traveled in the past

Whether I'm holdin' a mic or holdin' a Mac
It's like an invisible force is holdin' me back
But I ain't lettin' go of my pride
After I get the dough I slide, better know I tried, let's go

Everyday, somethin' in my way, I try
Shit ain't goin' right, I try to see the light, I try
It's like my eyes got a cover on 'em
And somethin' holdin' me back
A better man, better level, better know, I try

Here come another day up on me
Put the pressure on me, here we go again, ah
I try to do what's right when life is so wrong
I want a better way, I see a better day
'Nuff wit the people said, I want a better me
God knows that I try but time won't wait for me

Everyday, somethin', in my way, I try
Shit ain't goin' right, I try to see the light, I try
It's like my eyes got a cover on 'em
And somethin' holdin' me back
A better man, better level, better know, I try
