Until Lyrics

[Intro-Spoken]
Now to understand the struggle
To understand payin dues
And the pain of my people and your people, all around the globe
You gotta feel me
Listen to the music--use it

[Verse 1]
What you know about juggling jobs and struggling hard and chasing dreams
What you know about havin no car and rent bein due and no bling bling
What you know about sacrificing all your wants for all your needs
What you know about lovin your child, just to find out it ain't your seed

[Chorus]
Until you know my joy, know my pain, and know my struggles
Until you've walked these shoes, paid my dues, and felt my troubles
Until you've shared my tears, known my fears, in all my years
Only til then, you only know what you think you know

[Verse 2]
What you know about hittin that block and dodging them cops to make ends meet
What you know about the lights bein off, the gas bein off and no food to eat
What you know about Goodwill clothes, while all your friends dressed fly in junior high
What you know about Grandma's words when she said One day, boy, you gon shine

[Chorus: x2]
Until you know my joy, know my pain, and know my struggles
Until you've walked these shoes, paid my dues, and felt my troubles
Until you've shared my tears, known my fears, in all my years
Only til then, you only know what you think you know

[Verse 3]
What you know about writin late at night, by candlelight til the shit is tight
What you know about late night prayers, and late night tears, hopin God (tell me what you know)
What you know about earning your keep, because you're dope and ??
Don't you know the last'll be first (Hey) and the first will be last

[Chorus: x2]
Until you know my joy, know my pain, and know my struggles
Until you've walked these shoes, paid my dues, and felt my troubles
Until you've shared my tears, known my fears, in all my years
Only til then, you only know what you think you know
