Reasons (To Be Me) Lyrics

Yeah I struggle
Ha you don't even know what struggle means
From the D but never experienced a need
Says a white nigga who I guess knows what being black means
Has the knowledge to know that I don't have enough to be a nigga
You're not enough
You're acting white as fuck
You ain't the only one
Many of ya'll just tryna to blend in as us
I think you said enough
Woke niggas ha

It's already hard being a black girl
Living in a white world
Got the confidence to wear my hair in these big curls
But all they do is stare and
Always stay comparing
Yeah they want to change you up to look a certain way yeah
All in a game of eenie meenie miney mo
Catch a nigga by his toe
If he holla jail he go
If he holla guns will blow
Before you know
Another young soul gone before he could grow

I said reasons these all the muthafuckin' reasons
Why I feel I'm at the deep end
Can you listen up listen up
Understand my feelings
These the muthafuckin' reasons
Why I feel I'm at the deep end
Can you listen up listen up listen up
You're very pretty for a black girl
But you don't have the qualities to become that it girl
That it girl got long hair no perm girl
Lightskin with thick curls
Skim thick not too big
Unique not average
Sorry I don't fit the description you see on tv
Sorry that in actuality you want to be me
Who me couldn't be
I was the running punchline
Wasn't I the one you laughed while sitting on the sidelines
To be me gotta handle that shit with a smile
Words will grow numb to you it'll take a while
To be me even if you run from your problems
You're a walking target so act real solemn
To be me even your own people won't be there for ya
As you grow older they as scared as ya
Crazy how the cycle comes right back to ya back to ya

I said reasons these all the muthafuckin' reasons
Why I feel I'm at the deep end
Can you listen up
Can you listen up
And understand my feelings
These the muthafuckin' reasons
Why I always feel I'm at the deep

I said reasons these all the muthafuckin' reasons
Why I feel I'm at the deep end
Can you listen up listen up
Understand my feelings
These the muthafuckin reasons
Why I feel I'm at the deep end
Can you listen up listen up listen up
