Big Deal

One Dream

LYRIC

Intro (Martin Luther King):
So even though we face the difficulties
Of today and tomorrow
I still have a dream…

Verse 1:
We got the whole music scene sleeping on us/
Moms weeping on us, cus we skip class, spit raps
Deaf ears to the teacher speaking nonsense/
Dads feel we’ll end been nothing, so I'm just been honest/
I don't wanna be your neighbors son/
I know u tryna save your son but what u tryna save him from?
His dreams, his idols, I know u hate his favorite song/
But how u gonna suppress the art form he was raised upon/
So u place upon him bonds, make him do what you want & afraid at home/
Till he sneaks out, gets in the wrong company
Plays a song, talk & chill, blaze a bong/
Now his grades is gone bonkers/
& everybody looking at you like u raised him wrong/
Maybe, u recall when he was just a baby/
Never thought generation gap be this crazy/
But I got a dream..
Chorus:
[I know you tryna live your dreams
Yeah, I can feel your pain
I know it gets hard but please don’t give up]*2

Verse 2:
Dad, I’m just working on my skill and/
I ain’t killing, I ain’t into drug dealing/
So, why do you always see me as a villain/
And treat so different from the other children/
See I just love to play/
Football and there ain’t no other way/
To put it, it’s the truth like you wanted to be a doctor but you couldn’t/
At least I wanna be something that I’m good at/
So, respect that or hear my neck crack/
From the burden of your dreams, might twist my head back/
And be dead that’s all
I don’t know if it matters/
Footballers are the same for you as rappers, right?
Ironic, I got a friend who raps/
And he just like me has been through crap/
You know the usual, cus his dreams musical
But it’ll be “kicks” and “snares” and then you’ll “clap”/
Cus we win…

Chorus:
[I know you tryna live your dreams
Yeah, I can feel your pain
I know it gets hard but please don’t give up]*2
Verse 3:
Mom, I’ve been a poser all my life/
I love the cameras and the photos and the lights/
Some boys like I’m P.chopra look alike/
Ha, silly right? But I know that this is right/
I mean, I wanna be a model/
And that don’t mean I’ll be in the club with beer bottles/ nope
Trust me I won’t sleep around/
You should check the news, things are strict and different now/
I’ll be in different town but I’ll make you proud/
Take you out to Oberoi’s, oh I’m so overjoyed/
At the prospect of a perfect career choice/
Mom, do you even hear my voice?
Don’t block me out
I know I failed three times/
But don’t look at me every time and hit rewind/
I thought we agreed to leave it behind/
Can you please consider my dreams in the meantime?
One Dream..


Chorus:
[I know you tryna live your dreams
Yeah, I can feel your pain
I know it gets hard but please don’t give up]*2

Bridge:
[Live your dreams, heal your pain
Don’t give up]*2

Outro (J.cole):
You know it’s never too late to accomplish what you set out to accomplish
To follow your dreams
