NF - Hope

Yeah, I'm on my way, I'm coming
Don't lose faith in me
I know you've been waiting
I know you've been praying for my soul

Thirty years you been dragging your feet
Telling me I'm the reason we're stagnant
Thirty years you've been claiming you're honest
And promising progress, well, where's it at
I don't want you to feel like a failure
I know this hurts
But I gave you your chance to deliver
Now it's my turn

Don't get me wrong
Nate, you've had a great run
But it's time to
Give the people something different
So without further ado, I'd
Like to introduce my
My album (My album)
My album (My album)
My album
My album (My album)
My album (My album)
My album (My album)

What's my definition of success (Of success)
Listening to what your heart says (Your heart says)
Standing up for what you know is (Is)
Right, while everybody else is (Is)
Tucking their tail between their legs (Okay)

What's my definition of success (Of success)
Creating something no one else can (Else can)
Being brave enough to dream big (Big)
Grinding when you're told to just quit (Quit)
Giving more when you got nothing left (Left)

It's a person that'll take a chance on
Something they were told could never happen
It's a person that can see the bright side
Through the dark times when there ain't one
It's when someone who ain't never had nothing
Ain't afraid to walk away from
More profit, cause they'd rather do something
That they really love and take the pay cut
It's a person that would never waver
Or change who they are
Just to try and gain some credibility
So they could feel accepted by a stranger
It's a person that can take the failures in their life
And turn them into motivation
It's believing in yourself when
No one else does, it's amazing
What a little bit of faith can do
If you don't even believe in you
Why would you think or expect anybody else
That's around you to
I done did things that I regret
I done said things I can't take back
Was a lost soul at a crossroad
Who had no hope, but I changed that

I spent years of my life holding on to things
I never should have kept, full of hatred
Years of my life carrying a lot of baggage
That I should have walked away from
Years of my life wishing I was someone different
Looking for some validation
Years of my life tryna fill the void
Pretending I was in ...
They get it

Growing pain's a necessary evil
Difficult to go through, yes, but beneficial
Some would say having a mental breakdown is a negative thing
Which on one hand I agree with
On the other hand it was the push I needed
To get help and start the healing process, see if
I'd have never hit rock bottom, would I be
The person that I am today, I don't believe so
I'm a prime example of what happens
When you choose to not accept defeat and face your demons
Took me thirty years to realize
That if you wanna get that opportunity to be the
Greatest version of yourself, sometimes you got to be
Someone you're not to hear the voice of reason
Having kids will make you really take a step back
And look in the mirror, at least for me
That's what it did, I ...

Wake up every day and pick my son up
Hold him in my arms and let him know he's loved (Loved)
Standing by the window
Questioning if dad is ever going to show up (Up)
Isn't something he's gon' have to worry 'bout
Don't get it twisted, that wasn't a shot
Mama, I forgive you, I just don't want him
To grow up thinking that he'll never be enough

Thirty years of running
Thirty years of searching
Thirty years of hurting
Thirty years of pain
Thirty years of fearful
Thirty years of anger
Thirty years of empty
Thirty years of shame
Thirty years of broken
Thirty years of anguish
Thirty years of hopeless
Thirty years of (Hey)
Thirty years of never
Thirty years of maybe
Thirty years of later
Thirty years of fake
Thirty years of hollow
Thirty years of sorrow
Thirty years of darkness
Thirty years of (Nate)
Thirty years of baggage
Thirty years of sadness
Thirty years of stagnant
Thirty years of chains
Thirty years of anxious
Thirty years of suffering
Thirty years of torment
Thirty years of (Wait)
Thirty years of bitter
Thirty years of lonely
Thirty years of pushing
Everyone away (Way)

You'll never evolve
I know I can change
We are not enough
We are not the same
You don't have the heart
You don't have the strength
You don't have the will
You don't have the faith
You'll never be loved
You'll never be safe
Might as well give up
Not running away
You don't have the guts
You're the one afraid
I'm the one in charge
I'm taking the (No)
I'm taking the
