[Verse:]
I wrote an ode to the people the people that owe the praise, who got
My back so with a smile I just hold their weight, though it makes me
Old to say make no mistake, my best days these day reliving the olden
Days, my boys became brothers, their moms became my mother, our wrongs
Became our mentors, my songs became my lover, you dawned on me the
Other day, I didn't thank you inside my cd cover, but thanks, remember
When never was never and didn't know what a care was, now we uncle
Youngins of some friends just like we share blood, and we lend when we
Can't spare funds, still expect nothing back just glad we could be
There once, here's to years of holding me tight, providing me that
Comfy spot where my loyalties lie, you rise to be my prized
Possessions in the spoils of time, you own a piece of me that's why I
Owe you my life

[Chorus:]
I believe I can fly float hydroplane, no boat no plane, Just the
People that I claim, the people that I claim, the people that I claim,
It's my people that have made me,
I believe I can fly float hydroplane, no boat no plane, Just the
People that I claim, the people that I claim, the people that I claim,
It's my people that have made me,

[Verse 2:]
My foundation's an assortment, of friends fam and supporters, no fans
They're just extended fam it just the music that they know first,
Musics how my soul works, and it's powered by the same love I give my
Old earth, so it's full circle for the people of good, who paid that
Inspiration forward to reach like I should, now I reach with a voice
That will teach what you would, if I inspire you like you inspire me
Then get up, I didn't expect the reaction when I was on tour and
Stranded, all the perfect strangers who reached out a hand, to get us
Back home, not even just that fact alone, that spreads to those that
Had a couch to loan, for when I made it back and didn't have a home,
Here's to years of holding me tight, providing me that comfy spot
Where my loyalties lie, you rise to be my prized possessions in the
Spoils of time, you own a piece of me that's why I owe you my life

[Chorus:]
I believe I can fly float hydroplane, no boat no plane, Just the
People that I claim, the people that I claim, the people that I claim,
It's my people that have made me,
I believe I can fly float hydroplane, no boat no plane, Just the
People that I claim, the people that I claim, the people that I claim,
It's my people that have made me,
