PROUD OF ME

about

Cyrano take a look inward on this inspirational, introspective song. Written after the death of his father, "Proud of Me" is a too-little-too-late reminder to hug, hold, love and thank those people whom we care about.

lyrics

Man Centric, you make it sound so simple man...

As I sitback, relax, relate and release
Thinking bout how I obtained my inner peace
My inner circle had the virtue of patience
Cuz i been in some precarious situations
And even though i'm a young man, physical abilities
Never competed with me mentally
I never had a lot of energy
Saw myself more as a thinker, tryna avoid injury
The streets was an efigy
Taught me the necessities that stopped this world from stressing me
It was sorta like a recipe
And i was the Emeril Lagasse of my posse
A young ignorant kid with moxie
But now I've moved onward and upward
Tapped into the best of me
I got the same determination
But now its on a solid foundation

Chorus:
I been living wild & free
Now my eyes can see
Something inside of me, just wants you to be proud of me
I been living wild & free
Now my eyes can see
Something inside of me, just wants you to be proud of me

Made the great escape from the 'ville, to college hill
To show everybody at home that I was real
My biggest mistake was tryna remake the wheel
See, i learned about G-forces in my college courses
But i really couldnt fully comprehend
'Fore i got it, they had notified my next of kin
So i'm back in a small town
Writing it all down
My journal was dark cuz I was nocturnal
Precipitation never moved me
Situtation never threw me
Until the 1 person died that really knew me
Then here we go
On a emotional rollercoaster
But I couldnt dream like Vivian Green
So the lab was my refuge
Stuck in my pad, become a recluse
Poured my heart and soul in the booth
And I still aint satisfied
Rolling like a stone
Tryna find that one zone that i can call home
Day-to-day like gets tough like bone gristle
But stay away from THAT life, it wont miss you
Niggas paperchase they days away hoping
To get a token so they can ride the gravy train
Just as addictive as cocaine
Giving noname, hardhead niggas false hope, like Rogaine
Playing life like a dice game
1/3 of a 40 oz is the price of fame

Chorus:
I been living wild & free
Now my eyes can see
Something inside of me, just wants you to be proud of me
I been living wild & free
Now my eyes can see
Something inside of me, just wants you to be proud of me


It kills me hear niggas preach the streets
Like a soldier from the suburbs cant breach the streets
Like the mission is impossible to beat the streets
But I'm bout to tell a story that'll teach the streets
I was the Murdock of my little A-Team unit
Pulling pranks and shanks, I was waiting to do it.
Pulling stanks in that Tommy-Hilfiger tunic
Riding round in my homeboys old Buick
Niggas thought that I was herb
I knew it
I coulda worked out as a nerd, but I blew it
Pulling Cs and Ds, no compact disc
Cuz i'm that rich, nigga hanging out in the bricks
Checkin on my aunt to see how she was doing
Hoping that she'd stop pursuing her own ruin
Almost got peeps laid off at Mickey-Ds giving us bags of food
We was tricky thieves
All the past misdeeds came back to haunt me
Made some bad deals like Monty, they now taunt me
Yeah, we was young and wild
But all the bad decisions have piled up in my path like dirty laundry
STILL got bad credit
I'ma grown man, and I cant get a home in my own name?
Now its clear that I followed the wrong plan, cause i
had the ball in my court, like home games
Ever since the day i, looked in that casket at Dads cold frame
Havent been the same
Now I understand the fast life has a highass price
Thats just a little word of advice

Chorus:
I been living wild & free
Now my eyes can see
Something inside of me, just wants you to be proud of me
I been living wild & free
Now my eyes can see
Something inside of me, just wants you to be proud of me
