    Lyrics

    Dear mama, you wouldn't believe what I'm goin' through
    But still I got my head up just like I promised you
    Every since you left, your babyboy's been dealin'with
    Problem after problem, tell me what am I supposed to do
    See, I get lost sometimes, don't understand this place
    Look in the mirror sometimes and see a troubled face
    And then my tears roll down and hit the sink
    Then I hold my head up high, I hope the Man upstairs can hear my cry
    All these questions deep inside my mind
    Like if Jesus loved me, why he leave my side, mama
    I'm still tryin' to get the answer why
    You were young, 45, and you had to die
    I'm always tryin' to help people out
    And it's them same people tryin' to take food out my mouth

    (Fo' real tho') It seems like the more money I make
    (Fo' real tho') The more drama y'all try to create
    (Fo' real tho') And though I try to move into the positive
    (Fo' real tho') The more y'all don't wanna let me live

    When will you realize that I don't owe you nothin'
    Need to get up off your butt and go get your own somethin'
    I'm pullin' on my hair to keep from snappin' off
    Fools ride up in my camp and be YAPPIN' off
    Somebody out there please pray what I'm talkin' 'bout
    Still young tryin' to figure it out

    Heaven, I need a hug
    Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
    Feelin' like a change of heart
    And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
    So shower down on me, wet me with your love
    I need you to take me and lift me up, oh, yeah

    I gave 13 years of my life to this industry
    Hit song or not, I've given all of me
    You smile in my face and tell me that you love
    But then before you know the truth, you're so quick to judge me
    That's alright, go ahead, keep talkin'
    'Cause I'mma hold my head up high and keep walkin'
    And reach for the sky, focus on the plan
    Rescue the ghetto with his paper a pen
    And this is for the homies that we lost
    Yo', we cannot forget y'all, so the hats come off
    We pour a little liquor out for the memory
    I know y'all up there sittin' on chrome in them pearly streets
    The street survivors BE careful, stay alive
    I'm prayin' for your families, I hope you pray for mine

    (Fo' real tho') Used to be a time you wished me well
    (Fo' real tho') It hurts to know you wanna see me fail
    (Fo' real tho') And don't forget I kept you out of jail
    (Fo' real tho') WAS my arms when you needed to be held

    They turn they backs on you, who was there believin'
    Who said your troubles were only for a season
    In church together tryin' to pick up all the pieces
    And now you betray me, I bind you in the name of Jesus
    Somebody please pray ON what I'm talkin' 'bout
    Still young tryin' to figure it all out

    Heaven, I need a hug
    Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
    Feelin' like a change of heart
    And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
    (Please shower down)
    So shower down on me, wet me with your love (Yeah)
    I need you to take me and lift me up (Oh...oh...yeah, yeah, yeah)

    Man, I tell you it's enough to make you wanna give it up
    Thank God for my fans 'cause through it all they show me love
    To my sister and TWO brothers
    Tell me why can't we just try to get along with one another
    And stop hurtin' one another, fightin' one another
    Man, I pray to God He get my family back together
    Let me see what wanna see, just to blind me
    All of these luxuries, wine and dining
    And then You push me out in front to get behind me
    Then You sat me up by blessin' me to bind me
    I'm a grown man with kids now, stakes are HIGHER
    Gotta go to church now to avoid the FIRE
    Frankly, y'all to keep it real I'm just tired
    Have dreams of bein' dead, but the devil is alive

    (Fo' real tho') Church folks, you need to stop judgin'
    (Fo' real tho') Or you will be the first to be judged
    (Fo' real tho') And women stop dependin' on us men
    (Fo' real tho') And start dependin' on the Man above, feel me

    And as for ROBERT, here's what I need to do
    Get rid of them clowns and get myself a whole 'nother crew
    Media, do your job
    But please just don't make my job so hard
    Somebody please pray ON what I'm talkin' 'bout
    I'm still young tryin' to figure it all out

    Heaven, I need a hug
    Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
    Feelin' like a change of heart
    And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
    So shower down on me (Shower down on me now), wet me with your love
    I need you to take me (Please) and lift me up, yeah,
    yeah (Said I'm callin' on heaven)

    Heaven, I need a hug
    Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
    Feelin' like a change of heart
    And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
    So shower down on me, wet me with your love
    I need you to take me and lift me up (Lift me up),
    yeah, yeah (Heaven I need)

    Heaven, I need a hug (Ooh, yeah, yeah)
    Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
    Said I'm Feelin' like a change of heart (Hey)
    And all I really need is a sign or a word from God (Ooh, yeah)
    So shower down on me (Shower down), wet me with your love (Take me)
    I need you to take me and lift me up, yeah, yeah
