Taylor Bennett – BE YOURSELF lyrics

[Intro: Taylor Bennett]
That ain’t wrong
That ain’t wrong
In order to touch, you gotta [?]
Don’t break you down, no
These diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure

[Verse: Taylor Bennett]
I used to look up at the stars and wonder if he’s really there
If he was, why he give me hand-me-downs every year
Why my momma hate my dad, and why my daddy never here
Why I got this IEP, and why I can’t just be prepared
Why these teachers laugh at me when I say I’ma be the mayor
When I say I’m serious, why they smiles don’t disappear
‘Cause I ride that CTA, 4.0 ain’t my GPA
My momma was so proud of me, Lisa Bennett not Lisa Ray
She was scratching lottery tickets, when we gon’ see the place
And on top of that got my first suspension like yesterday
They know I’m ’07 now why these niggas gon’ mess with me
If I got a problem, still call up see Keegan rescue me
You say hit up Jay for that recipe, now it’s rest in peace
Chano you can rest in peace, Damo you can rest in peace
Maurice you can rest in peace, got that sh*t got the best of me
Used to leave McDonald’s with empty bottles and cold gelato
When it’s hot Chicago we movin’ like the clutch up off the throttle
Now it’s less McDonald’s like models coming from Colorado
If I painted my story, my canvases [?] follow
I used stay up late night wanting what I couldn’t borrow
Now it’s hello world, hella’ yellow girls in my bed [?]
So much more, hit my dictionary, [?]
I just had to write this track, goddamn while my stomach hurt
‘Cus we all independent in this bitch and we can f*ckin’ merch
Been a while since I’ve been to church no wonder I’m feellin’ cursed
Wishin’ this was ’05 back when ain’t nobody give a f*ck
Before this Acid Rain dance, and that’s when we were good enough
From playpens to stadiums, that’s a lot of growing up
I just thought I’d open up ’cause that means that it’s more to us
No name-dropping, clout-chasing, ain’t the way the tour bus
I been in a lap clockin’ the work without no doctor shirt
This year wasn’t easy, if your dreamin’ boy you gotta work
Thinkin’ this sh*t gotta work, everytime I write a verse
Workin’, workin’ workin’, workin’, workin’, that’s that Bennett curse
Dream’s worth believing in, scheming, planning an’ seizin’ ’em
Used to call me retarded, now all them got [?]
Salty exes is seasonin’, slowin’ down on my sodium
Euphoria’s not utopia, stop actin’ like you know me bruh
I knew since birth I was certain that I was sent with a purpose
While you competin’ with crabs in a bucket I’m in the ocean
It’s Taylor Bennett, your superhero, the answer’s been spoken
I told ’em be yourself fast, you gotta scream to the masses
And niggas still call me faggot, but bitch my sh*t lookin’ fabulous
You can tell by the back I get mommy’s names on the addresses
You portray with the savages, I invade them, enslave them
My debt is repaid and [?] sh*t, I ain’t havin’ a [?]
I’m an outstanding Afro-American bisexual havin’ sh*t
Change your dreams if they average
If your workplace is adamant, how the f*ck it ain’t accurate?
Okay
I switch lanes for gang gang, and no shame in my job
And no angles, just angels, who hate what we love
And we’re ages and pages, it’s dangerous trust
And no favorites, just favors, it’s neighborly love
And my savior done made me and saved all of us
And your savior done made you and saved all of us
And my savior done made me and saved all of us

[Bridge: Bianca Shaw]
You know, deep down
We’re all our own kind
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, we’re all our own kind
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, we’re all a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, you’re a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, you’re a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, you’re a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
