    Lyrics

    [Intro:]
    Bone Thugs, Akon, yeah
    You know though nothin' come easy, you gotta try real, real hard
    I tried hard, but I guess I gotta try harder.

    [Chorus]
    I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
    Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
    It Ain't my fault cause I, try to get away but trouble follows me,
    And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

    But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail snow)
    But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough (gettin' dough)

    [verse 1]
    First, let me explain that I'm just a black man,
    And I come from the darkside, so I'm havin a hard time stayin on track man,
    My mind be racin', and I don't even know what I'm chasin yet
    Been in and out of relationships, I'm startin to see that it's me where the complications at
    But I'm layin back, prayin' that, you get that piece of mind of me
    I thought I was right, but really I'm wrong, but again I was too blind to see,
    I was in the fast lane chasin my dream,
    And then it seemed when the fame and cash came, they just got me,
    Goin crazyyyy, (lately, lately) lately I been so faded trying to erase it,
    But I just can't cause the drama just grows greater,
    And I been in so many collisions by puttin shit off till later.

    [Chorus]
    I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
    Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
    It Ain't my fault cause I, try to get away but trouble follows me,
    And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

    But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail snow)
    But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough (gettin' dough)

    [verse 2]

    It's like I'm takin' five steps forward, and ten steps back
    Tryin' to get ahead of the game but I can't seem to get it on track
    And I keep runnin away the ones that say they love me the most
    How could I create the distance when it's supposed to be close? And uh,
    I just don't know but I be out here fightin demons and
    It's like the curse that I can't shake this part of Cleveland and
    Lord, would you help me? And stop this pain
    I keep inflinctin on my family (family)
    Hustlin and gamblin, drinkin' and scramblin'
    And losin' sight of what I supposed to be handlin'
    It's hard to manage cause every days a challenge and man
    And I'm slippin can't lose my balance and tryin not to panic

    [Chorus]
    I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
    Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
    It Ain't my fault cause I, try to get away but trouble follows me,
    And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

    But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail snow)
    But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough (gettin' dough)

    [verse 3]

    I see thangs won't change (wont change) I'm stuck in the game
    As soon as I get out it keeps pullin me back man (pullin me back man)
    Got me doin' dirty dirt, so used to this hustlin money,
    That I don't understand no nine to five work
    Studied on the streets, hustlas know what I mean
    Thugstas ballin' before us I'm tryna make that major league
    So we never leave never till the sun came up (came up)
    Gotta get it nope, no leavin, no grudge (no grudge) today games they play
    Gotta go hard to get what you put in, if you fall off then its all on you (on you)
    Gotta watch what you sign too, try so hard but I won't act a fool.

    [Chorus]
    I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
    Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
    It Ain't my fault cause I, try to get away but trouble follows me,
    And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

    But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain, sleet, hail, snow (hail snow)
    But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough (gettln' dough)
