LYRICS

HOOK
Hopin’ that they write songs about me
Hopin’ that they write songs about me
Hopin’ that they write songs about me ..when I’m gone

Tell me that you will sing about me
Tell me that you will sing about me
Tell me that you will sing about me…when I’m gone

VERSE 1
Something walked across my mind
Screaming at my conscious high
Written in a question rhyme
What’s the point? Why even try?
You’ve been cryin’ over rivers…
Been cryin’ over rivers for months

Why’s the price of chasing fame
Dollars someone else can gain
All that’s left is pocket change
And Bill’s the only name u made
I’m tryna see the lesson
Tryna learn the lessons… I can’t

PREHOOK
But when the dark covers me
I hope the world remembers me
That I was free..free to be me

HOOK

VERSE 2
Keep blaming dad for breakin’ hearts
Mine before the beat could start
Bet I’ll find the missing parts
Cause Momma needs a brand new carI promise that Im working
Promise that I’ll work hard for her

And if I die up on this stage
Tell my girl I love you babe
Probably should’ve quit the game
Now I’m by the river banks
I’m cryin’ you a river
Cryin’ over rivers for you

PREHOOK
But when the dark covers me
I hope the world remembers me
That I was free..that’s how I plan to leave….

HOOK

BRIDGE
I hear them say…
You got this, don’t worry, don’t worry, You got this, I got you, don’t worry, don’t worry
I hear them sing…
You got this, don’t worry, don’t worry, You got this, I got you, don’t worry, don’t worry
I hear them say..yeah
You got this, don’t worry, don’t worry, You got this, I got you, don’t worry, don’t worry
I hear them say that what you do is not in vain….no

HOOK

VERSE 3
I figure that this bumpy road
Is worth it if my stories told
The struggles on the way to gold
A fable never getting old
It keeps me going on..ya know
It keeps me going on til I’m gone
