[Verse 1]
Growing up, parents got me a guitar
Said "you can do anything, kid, you can go far
You can be the president, fireman, race cars
The sky's the limit, kid, so, shoot for the stars"
So, I strummed that guitar every day
Found a passion for music, never went away
I joined a couple bands and played a few shows
Tried to impress the girl in the front row
But soon enough everything starts to change
As you grow up, nobody treats you the same
They try take your future and make it real safe
You could be a doctor, accountant or something sane
But yo, what ever happened to "the sky was the limit?"
I fell in love with music, never thought it was a gimmick
I worked so hard on every tune and every single lyric
My whole identity dependent on being artistic
Now you want to strip that away, so you feel ok?
'Cause if I make it to the top, what does that really say?
That you shouldn't have given up, that you made the mistake
But if I fail you feel much better 'bout picking your lane, right?

[Chorus]
Yeah, things are gonna get better real soon
Yeah, I'ma just do me, you just do you
I swear, it's gonna get better real soon
Don't let anyone tell you what you should do

[Buildup]
I got a clear view
We're gonna make it soon
Just keep pushing through
Yeah, what you got to lose?
Yeah, what you got to lose?
Yeah, what you got to lose?
Just keep pushing through
'Cause what you got to lose?

[Drop]
Got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got to lose
Go-go-got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got to lose
Got, go-go-got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got to lose
Go-go-got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got

[Refrain]
I won't give up, I won't back down
Till I'm lying six feet underneath the deep ground
I won't give up, I won't back down
'Cause nobody's stopping me except for me now
I won't give up, I won't back down
Till I'm lying six feet underneath the deep ground
I won't give up, I won't back down
'Cause nobody's stopping me except for me now

[Verse 2]
And let's be honest, life's a competition
So, if I'm going to play, then I'm gon' play to win it
I refuse to sit and rot at a desk all day
Unless I have a passion I'm working towards, okay
I'd rather be dead on the outside than inside
A bullet to the head than 25 to life
In a cubicle alone just trying to get by
Building someone else's dream instead of building mine
If you're hearin' me, this is meant to inspire
If you have a dream or if you have desires
A girl in your life that's makin' you feel that fire
Go fight for her, man, go die for her, man
'Cause you only have one life, one chance to do it
One chance to prove it to yourself, so, don't lose it
You got this, fam, just keep pushing on through it
One day you'll look back so glad you pursued it

[Chorus]
Yeah, things are gonna get better real soon
Yeah, I'ma just do me, you just do you
I swear, it's gonna get better real soon
Don't let anyone tell you what you should do

[Buildup]
I got a clear view
We're gonna make it soon
Just keep pushing through
Yeah, what you got to lose?
Yeah, what you got to lose?
Yeah, what you got to lose?
Just keep pushing through
'Cause what you got to lose?

[Drop]
Got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got to lose
Go-go-got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got to lose
Got, go-go-got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got to lose
Go-go-got to lose, got to lose
Got to lose, got

[Refrain]
I won't give up, I won't back down
Till I'm lying six feet underneath the deep ground
I won't give up, I won't back down
'Cause nobody's stopping me except for me now
I won't give up, I won't back down
Till I'm lying six feet underneath the deep ground
I won't give up, I won't back down
'Cause nobody's stopping me except for me now

[Bridge]
You ain't gon' stop me now, because I got this now
I got the formula and I'm about to drop it loud
So, what we talking 'bout? There is no talking now
We take action with passion, we're rockin'now
It's tick-tockin' now, the clock's tockin' down
And all I hear is haters try so hard to talk me down
But they can't stop the sound, already on the ground
Everything is growing faster than I can count
You ain't gon' stop me now, because I got this now
I got the formula and I'm about to drop it loud
So, what we talking 'bout? There is no talking now
We take action with passion, we're rockin'now
It's tick-tockin' now, the clock's tockin' down
And all I hear is haters try so hard to talk me down
But they can't stop the sound, already on the ground
Everything is growing faster than I can count

[Drop]
I, I, I-I-I-I
