All I ever wanted

by John Woodard
(Newport vt united states)


All ever wanted in my life
Was to be somebody great 
Somebody for these kids
Underneath me to look up to 
Somebody you could run to 
If you ever had an issue 
Ill lend my shoulder 
And you could just let it all out 
I wouldn't judge 
Cause I know what it's like 
To live a hard life 
Now if you want 
You can follow behind me 
In my footsteps 
And I'll lead us on a 
Path to success 
Cause I'm destined for greatness
Born a king 
Was blessed with a curse 
Now I got a message to send 
I'm heave sent 
Heaven bound
Nothing can stop 
Me from opening 
Heavens gate
Because I'm just like 
Jesus willing to lay my life down 
For all the innocents 
If you were gonna put 
A bullet in my dude 
I'd tell you to hit me first 
Because I always been about 
My friends and family 
Because if ur my friend 
Ur not my friend ur my 
Brother but if you 
Double cross me 
Ill erase you from history 
And u know I can
Cause you know what I'm capable of
Don't even have to use my hands 
Just the words in my head 
Can make people forget you
So like I said 
Now if you want 
You can follow behind me 
In my footsteps 
And I'll lead us on a 
Path to success 
It's hard I know 
But no one ever said 
The path to victory 
Would be easy 
I gotta keep pushin forward
Can't take a step back 
No time to relax 
I can't fall off track 
Untamed and unleashed 
Back on the street 
Just like animal 
I told you no 8 by 8 cell 
Could hold me 
Prison life just ain't for me
I won't go back 
So like I said 
Now if you want 
You can follow behind me 
In my footsteps 
And I'll lead us on a 
Path to success 
I'm headed for the top now 
I'm headed for the top now
And when I make it 
Everyone that said I wouldn't 
Can shut up and just bow down 
But I thank you 
Because your negativity is what 
Drove me this far 
You thought I couldn't 
Take charge 
Thought I couldn't change 
But look at me now 
I'm a new man 
Thought I'd fall back 
In the streets an get stuck 
Like it was quick sand 
But I didn't
So like I said 
Now if you want 
You can follow behind me 
In my footsteps 
And I'll lead us on a 
Path to success
