Benediction lyrics by August alsina

[Hook: August Alsina]
We were down from the beginning
When the world wasn’t listening
[Verse 1: August Alsina]
‘Cause life out here ain’t sweet, oh no
I would close my eyes to sleep, but didn’t dream no more
So I had to make a way for my home, you know
So many nights I tried
To hide how I felt, I would cry inside
[Pre-Hook: August Alsina]
[Hook: August Alsina]
We were down from the beginning
When the world wasn’t listening
[Verse 2: August Alsina]
I pray you free me from my demons and keep me level
Tryna get to the good life and out of this hood life
So mama could sleep nights, I know it’s been hard on her
I was ripping through the streets, it was hard for her
Now I’m up in hotels on the ocean shore
[Pre-Hook: August Alsina]
[Hook: August Alsina]
We were down from the beginning
When the world wasn’t listening
[Verse 3: Rick Ross]
Rightin’ all my wrongs for these homies out here thuggin’
Pray for benediction, pretty women on my premise
Condo out in Cabo, screamin’ “GABOS” to my nemesis
Gold around my neck, I’m ballin’ for these final minutes
Nothin’ lasts forever, for these sins I seek repentance
Shots fired, another gone, I feel that man’s pain
Daddy sat me down and said, “That came with the game”
Shake my head, roll up the window, turnin’ up the music
So much anger in these songs for these soldiers that we losin’
A mastermind is one who’s feedin’ others off his talent
I owe it to my city but it’s time I pay my balance
I’m in , I started with a pallet
Thankful for my supporters, everyone that ever bought us
Grateful for every lesson these Miami streets taught us
[Hook: August Alsina]
We were down from the beginning
When the world wasn’t listening
