[Verse]  - Troy Bjorklund
I'm tryin' eat until you see me rub my belly at the table /
I'm just tryin' to spread some love, like some jelly on a bagel /
All these rappers turn bitter, jealousy can make you jaded /
I just think they all Cain, mad that they ain't able /
I'm blockin' out the noise, I'm only hearin' what the Father say /
Young man got the juice now, I gotta concentrate /
Started as a pile of clay, but look at what the Potter made /
I coulda took the easy route, I went the Tim Hardaway /
Finally I found a way to get up off the sideline /
I do this with my eyes closed like Mike at that foul line /
So y'all tryin' to get 'em out they dresses for the night huh? /
I'm tryin' to get my girl in a dress, yeah that white one /
See lately I've been livin' like my every day decisions /
Are benefittin' my future, I'm doin' this for my children /
I'm doin' this for my people who feel like they're all alone /
Just to let 'em know you're halfway home, just carry on come on/

I just wanna live on (X4)
I just wanna live, I just wanna live
 

[verse] 
I just wanna live, i just wanna give /
Everything I can for the fam 100% /
I'll always stand with my daughter I'm proud of you kid /
She took her first steps the other day fell over and then /
I picked her up and told her keep goin' don't ever give in /
Some just want to see you drown but I'ma teach you to swim /
Around the sharks and to the surface so that you can breathe in /
A deep breath to reset, to feel the sun on your skin /
Enjoy that moment of peace, that cool breeze of the wind /
Because you'll soon need to leave, and dive deep down again /
Cuz you're not here to escape, but to take over and win /
To tell the real from the fake, the snakes who claim to be friends /
And when you're old enough to understand you'll sit back and grin /
When you re-listen to this song, it will all make sense /
Cuz i just want what's best for you so keep God first and dont quit /
No matter what happens in life this here is my greatest wish, live on /

[verse] 
Eventually it'll be me in a nursin' home /
Wifey passed before me so i sit alone with the curtains closed /
Thinkin' back on my life, on all those times I fell short /
When i was rude to my wife, those nights I chose to ignore /
The responsibilities of a husband and be immature /
It's hard to lead a family and also be led by the Lord /
It seems like yesterday when i proposed to her /
Or our wedding day, when i got close to her /
Kissed for the first time ever, it was well worth the wait /
Now fast forward a few years we've got a kid on the way /
And now i'm praying for our daughter who's nearly a year old /
That she'll learn from our mistakes and not go down the same road /
I'm still learning to grow, when to say yes and then no /
When to address my insecurities and when to let go /
I've just gotta live on, through all the highs and the lows /
And i know that I will make it cuz my God's in control, yeah /
