lyrics

[Intro: Casey G]
Why you sittin' wishin' on a shining star? Hissing like you got it hard
Tsk'ing on celebrities, because you always thought you'd be a prodigy
Instead you on the outside looking in
Rookie mistake, and what you take me for?
A dollar sixty-three to my name
I love life though. I do

[Verse 1: Good Matters]
Have you ever, ever found yourself at a
Train station, waiting for someone?
Waiting on a train that don't come
Waiting for the clouds to break and pour on some
But the rain ain't waiting, and the train is delayed
And you workin on a dollar-fifty, till you get paid
This pocket change is never enough
And it's low. Couldn't travel any lower
Cold. Needing someone to hug you
Bottom line is I ain't going nowhere, I ain't going nowhere
And try to hold on to those that love you
On a big blue ball underneath these grey covers
I am waiting for that sun to shine
And I'ma get mine

[Chorus: Casey G & Good Matters]
Go on get it y'all. Go, go on and get y'all
Come on and get it now. Come, come on and get it now
(repeat 4x)

[Scratch break: DJ Idlhnds]

[Verse 2: Casey G]
And have you ever found yourself
Locked inside your own head?
Feeling like you're drowning, like the water getting thick to tread
Ship is quickly sinking and you think you heard the captain said
"Y'all ain't got no leg to stand."
And I'd prefer a hundred bad days, to what this bitch been throwing at me
Playing make believe so I can tell my people I'm ok
One, for my broken down whip
Got two months of past due rent
Singing three for the drama from the opposite sex
They just another bad habit that I never can quit
My addiction list, seems three scrolls long
I feel like hiding from my life, singing these same old songs
But I'm waiting for that sun to shine
Because I'ma get mine

[Chorus: Casey G & Good Matters]
Go on get it y'all. Go, go on and get y'all
Come on and get it now. Come, come on and get it now
(repeat 6x)
