Child Of The Night Lyrics

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

Look here! now I'm a man of many talents and a man of my word
But on my path to see the light sometimes my vision gets blurred
It's all a part of growin' up and seein' life at it's worst
Then tryin' to iron out my wrinkles, puttin' family first

It seems like the whole world is out for sinkin' my boat
But with God as my navigator I'll be stayin' afloat
And I admit to bein' caught by many foolish distractions
Then I'm forced to pay the price as the result of my actions

I'm battlin' with myself and every day, it's a war
Curiosity killed the cat, why am I Curious George?
Gotta keep my nose up outta thangs that ain't none of my biz
And just 'cause somethin' looks don't really mean that it is

Get through the agony and anger, the pain and strife
And take the necessary steps to try to change my life
I got some questions for you Lord 'cause my mentality's hood
So why is everything that's bad for me feel so good?

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

Now I'm a only child, so excuse some of my selfish ways
I got spoiled when I was young, spoil myself today
Oh but I feed at least a thousand stomachs and how I've done it
Is from the ground up a hundred miles and runnin'

Dodgin' and duckin', everybody tryin' to hammer me down
A self-made millionaire, baby look at me now
Can't tell me nothin' still hungry as the day I began
'Cause all I ever really needed was a pen in my hand

And a pad in my lap, didn't matter in fact
Me and my momma lived in one room, and what's badder than that
Was a young man forced to grow up at the age of 12
Tryin' to get in where I fit, streets givin' me hell

But yet I give it right back, so how you like that
Continue doin' wrong 'til I was on the right track
Tell me 'bout heavy money I might give it a push
But a, bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, come on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

No matter how much older we get man, we all still children at heart
We all make mistakes, it's all good

Now I've tried plenty of times to get rid of my bad habits
Livin' life on the cuttin' edge, takin' a stab at it
And learnin' from my mistakes, try not to make 'em twice
Just admittin' when I'm wrong, tryin' hard to make it right

And baby, nobody's perfect in this world of ours
There's plenty people gettin' stitches in this world of scars
But over time, pray to God that He can heal your wounds
Try to love and love again until they seal your tomb

'Cause life is short if you don't know this it'll pass you by
That's why my head is in the clouds tryin' to pass the sky
Never blinkin' for a minute, keep my eyes on my foes
They wanna catch me in the open, bring my life to a close

Meanwhile that's why I'm bringin' so much life to my shows
I've seen smiles I'm makin' changes turnin' glitter to gold
Don't let these devils play you down or belittle your soul
Just be happy with yourself and it's so simple to grow, come on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on

It's gonna get in you, child of the night
And the hood rolls on
How do I begin to do this shit right
Get my hustle on
