Dear lord
I understand all the problems I’m about to express to you
Are things you already know
Well here goes nothing

Dear lord I am on my knees and I’m begging please
Just guide me father this time I’m really in need
Feeling like I just can’t go on, mama cryin’ and she lost her home
Tears runnin all down her face, judge gave her ten days to be gone
My god what I’m gon’ do now, so stressed that the day go by
Devil on me and I don’t know why , beg mama just please don’t’ cry
Times get a little rough I know, when it come to givin’ up I don’t
Got twins and they on their way, see ’em starve in the bed I won’t
Sometimes I ask myself would I be a good father
‘Cause I’ve never had mine, would I give the world to my daughters
Live and you learn, reap what you sow
Regardless of wealth, grind like ?

Only lord knows what the hell I dun’ really been through
All the nights I ain’t have no food
Dear god tell me what I’m gonna do
Man only lord knows all the times I was under my grind
He helped what I never could find, reach out when I couldn’t get a dime
Man only lord knows, lord knows, lord knows
Man only lord knows what the hell I dun’ really been through
All the nights my mama couldn’t move
And all the pain I dun’ put her through
Man only lord knows

And I’m sick and tired of this pain
Hate the lames in this game only down because of my name
Rock Swiss because of my fame
Lord knows the road where I came, lord know the nights that I cried
Can’t help the pain that’s inside, lord wipe the tears from my eyes
Ever seen the letter of eveiction, no place to go but you wishin
That a blessing come and you lifted, yeah dog that’s all in my vision
I dun’ been through hell and them trenches, I dun’ seen the best of them fall
Lost a couple of my dogs, miss them niggas like shit
But they still reside in my heart, sore, ached and I’m scarred
I”ma do it for Dale and Four Fifth, God damn it’s hard
Motherfuck this rapping, I really live this shit
Blood, sweat and tears, I really live this shit


And everyday that I wake, I grind, no time never wait for mine
Still waiting on the day I shine my soul, every bar, every line
I remember when I had no food, lights off, bills overdue
Lord knows that I’ve paid my dues, won’t forget when I got that news
They say my mama sickly thank god she seen her fifties
I pray and ask forgiveness, please lord just keep her with me
I was down and out, remember that like yesterday
Made it out that struggle bracket, this year I’m blessed to say
Man this world’s so fucked up, gas prices are way too high
Time’s hard and I ain’t gon’ lie, bust ass just to try and get by
So who the hell is y’all to be judging, made it away from literally nothing
Yeah I’m talking literally nothing


And only lord knows
I thank you jesus for guiding me,
For keeping me
In your name, I pray
And only lord knows
