Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've seen: money come between my best friend and me
I've seen: old friend become new enemies
I've been: through a couple of litigations
I've been: through character assassination.
Verse 2
They try to put this stick in between my wheels
But they can't stop my motivation (nothing will)
Verse 3
Though I walk through the valley where the shadow of death is
I fear no evil cause I'm protected.
Verse 4
No weapon formed against me shall prosper
Cause I'm walking with the heavenly father
And I do believe I'm going to prosper
Cause I'm walking with the prayers of my mother.
Verse 5
[Repeat: x2]
You won't get the best of me even though you broke my heart
I'm gone pick up the pieces.
Verse 6
I was thinking: maybe this isn't the life for me.
I was thinking: maybe I should leave the music industry
I've been: betrayed by the people I trusted
I've been: ohâ?¦seriously disgusted.
Verse 7
They try to put this stick in between my wheels
But they can't stop my motivation (nothing will)
Verse 8
Though I walk through the valley where the shadow of death is
I fear no evil cause I'm protected.
Verse 9
No weapon formed against me shall prosper,
Cause I'm walking with the heavenly father,
And I do believe I'm going to prosper
Cause I'm walking with the prayers of my mother.
Verse 10
[Repeat: x2]
You won't get the best of me even though you got my money
I'm gone pick up the pieces.
Verse 11
You can't get the best of meâ?¦ cause of my destiny
Not to be less than me, but to be more.
So, don't question me,
I came and I conquered, I soared
To new heights and still I explored
In my fight to survive,
Lyte is too right,
Keep my eyes on new sights
I continue to plight
So, when try to hurting me
Even deserting me,
Know that I am designed to overcome adversity,
Want to bring out the worst in me, it won't happen!
Because I take responsibility for my actions.
My tenacityâ?¦well it has to be everlasting,
Cause even when comes to backstabbers, I'm laughing!
Verse 12
You won't get the best of me even though broke my heart â?¦.i'm gone pick up the pieces.
Verse 13
[Repeat: x2]
You won't get the best of me even though you got my money
I'm gone pick up the pieces.
Verse 14
[Repeat: x4]
You won't get the best of me because by the grace of god
I'm gone pick up the pieces.
