BobBoth Of Us

I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us Some day I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us Ever thought about losing it When your money's all gone and you lose your whip You might lose your grip when the landlord tell ya that you're due for rent And the grass so green on the other side Make a n**** wanna run straight through the fence Open up the fridge bout twenty times But still can't find no food in it That's foolishness And sometimes I wonder, why we care so much about the way we look And the way we talk and the way we act And the clothes we bought, how much that cost? Does it even really matter? 'Cause if life is an uphill battle We all tryna climb with the same ol' ladder In the same boat, with the same ol' paddle Why so shallow? I'm just asking What's the pattern for the madness Everybody ain't a number one draft pick Most of us ain't Hollywood actors But if it's all for one, and one for all Then maybe one day, we all can ball Do it one time for the underdogs Sincerely yours, from one of y'all I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us Some day I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us I can feel your pain, I can feel your struggle You just wanna live, been everything so low That you could drown in a puddle That's why I gotta hold us up, yeah hold us up For all the times no one's ever spoke for us To every single time that they play this song You can say that that’s what Bobby Ray wrote for us When the tides get too high And the sea up underneath get so deep And you feel like you're just another person Getting lost in the crowd, way up high in the nosebleed Uh, because we won't be near yet, both of us But we still stand tall with our shoulders up And even though we always against the odds These are the things that have molded us And if life hadn't chosen us Sometimes I wonder where I would've wound up 'Cause if it was up to me, I'd make a new blueprint Then build it from the ground up, hey But if it's all for one, and one for all Then maybe one day, we all can ball Do it one time for the underdogs From Bobby Ray, to all of y'all I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us Some day I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us
