I Been Looking Around Lyrics
Growing up we didn't have much, I still remember mom in the welfare line, pops on the corner slanging flowers trying to make a dime, hustling hard, working beyond a nine to five, praying somebody stop but cars just keep passing him by, my older sister ran away and chose a life of crime, my younger sister getting calls from these older guys, I still hear the sound of them sirens running through my mind, saw grandma die in a stretcher before my very eyes, and who could forget the flames coming outta my room, wit firefighters trying save everything that aint ruined, it's bad enough we barely making ends meet, now we aint even got a blanket or a place to sleep, man, we all been through struggles and em' harder times, and at times it seems like there aint no peace of mind, but just, when I started to doubt, thinking nobody cares , I looked up and found that you was always right there.
Still looking for, keep looking for, out searching, nothing working, steady looking for...
Still waiting for, keep waiting for, true love, one love, what we waiting for...
Moved to Southern Cali and bought me a baller crib, wit marble floors, high ceilings and a pool to swim, I got a, lot of famous high profile friends, a white Benz laced wit them chrome spinning rims, top dollar brand fashion and a Jacob watch, bracelet wit canaries and em flawless rocks, I went from playa hated to Grammy nominated, to making movies wit Cuba and Beyonce now they say I made it, finally got my music making all the headlines, radio spinning my single back to back 10 times, but still it wasn't everything that I thought it be, found me searching for love and life's remedy, money bought me cars, power and yachts, I'm still distraught, got my stomach tangled in knots, sad and depressed, finally after everything I been through, I found out the only thing that was missing was you.
We all pretty much looking for the same thang, we soul searching trying get through life's long maze, I been to mountain tops looking for the most high, so many valleys lows, never thought I'd get by, so many shattered dreams, all the broken promises, lied to, left for dead, emotional apocalypse, we all looking for the answers of what and why, choose win or loose in this life we can live or die, and never fill that empty space that we feel inside, I know ya hurting, see the pain written in ya eyes, tried the drugs, tarot cards, and astrology, blaze up the purple haze, transcend reality, trying leave all of your problems behind, and some of yall put ya faith a nine, I got mine when I, gave up tha life, swapped it out for the better one, finally found true wealth, Never gonna find myself...
