Dee-1 – I Don’t Wanna Let You Down (feat. Cyrus Deshield)

[Verse 3: Cyrus DeShield]
I’m battling Goliaths everyday
Oceans are over, flow just like a tidal wave
This type of pain, most people can’t relate to it
I don’t wanna let you down
We need more heroes in the hood
Lift my head to sky, hoping for brighter days
I’ma get what’s ever meant for me
I don’t wanna let you down
Treating this like my last, hoping I leave em’ enlightened
Some say I’m going off the deep end
I don’t wanna let you down
Remember nights in the cold
Worried bout’ which way to go

Struggling with my past, yeah I’ve been going through it
I used to hang my head low
I’ll never let you down
I don’t wanna let you down
I don’t wanna let you down

They said it’s nothing a heart can take
This for all my family that raised me
Without a doubt
I had to go get it on my own
They say I need to switch lanes, but
[Chorus: Cyrus DeShield]
I pray you hear me when I say
I don’t wanna let you down
Yeah, and people, people all around me getting famous
I don’t wanna let you down
I just wanna make you proud to call me your child
I just wanna make you proud, wanna make you smile
I was given a gift plus I was given time
Yeah, they tell me nothing’s promised, but
I don’t wanna be lukewarm, I don’t wanna insult you
I don’t wanna let you down
I don’t wanna let you down
I don’t wanna let you down
Worried bout’ which way I was to go
They said it’s nothing a heart can take
But, if I do, then my heart gon break
I don’t wanna let you down
Worried bout’ which way to go
If you know me, then you know I’ve been trying
I don’t wanna let you down
Talented with the rhymes, that’s why
I don’t wanna let you down
But, if I do, then my heart gon break
But, I just gotta make you proud again
I had to go get it on my own
So, I’m fighting with these poems I’m writing
I don’t wanna let you down
Marathons recording, they say I need to rest
I used to hang my head low
I used to hang my head low
I won’t complain long as I’m breathing
I don’t wanna let you down
I don’t wanna let you down
Still no alcohol or weed when I deal with stress
They say your strongest soldiers are who humble and believe
I don’t wanna let you down
These are my inner-most thoughts

[Chorus: Cyrus DeShield]
They said it’s nothing a heart can take
I don’t wanna let you down
It ain’t easy walking in my shoes, but
If I act like I’m perfect, then you know I’ve been lying
Everytime he put me though tests, I get the answer now
But I promise I’m worth it, steady trying to improve
[Verse 1: Dee-1 and Cyrus DeShield]
[Verse 2: Dee-1]
I just want you, want you to purify my heart

Remember nights in the cold
I don’t wanna let you down
[Chorus: Cyrus DeShield]
Remember nights in the cold
I gotta give you my best
Yeah, tryna set an example that’s good
I don’t wanna let you down
I don’t wanna let you down
But, if I do, then my heart gon break
Lord knows it ain’t easy
I been eating once a day, I’ve been sleeping less
I don’t wanna let you down
And I know I’m better when I consult you
I don’t wanna let you down
Until the day, you come and send for me
I had to go get it on my own
And I know that you watching, countless times you forgave me
