“Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright.”

Alls my life I has to fight, nigga
Alls my life I…
Hard times like yah
Bad trips like “God!”
Nazareth, I’m fucked up
Homie you fucked up
But if God got us then we gon’ be alright

[Hook – Pharrell Williams:]
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
We gon’ be alright

Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Huh? We gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright

Uh, and when I wake up
I recognize you’re lookin’ at me for the pay cut
Behind my side we lookin’ at you from the face down
What mac-11 even boom with the bass down
Schemin’! And let me tell you bout my life
Painkillers only put me in the twilight
Where pretty pussy and Benjamin is the highlight
Now tell my mama I love her but this what I like
Lord knows, 20 of ’em in my Chevy
Tell ’em all to come and get me, reapin’ everything I sow
So my karma coming heavy
No preliminary hearings on my record
I’m a motherfucking gangster in silence for the record
Tell the world I know it’s too late
Boys and girls I think I’ve gone cray
Drown inside my vices all day
Won’t you please believe when I say

When you know, we been hurt, been down before, nigga
When our pride was low,

And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure, nigga
I’m at the preacher’s door
My knees gettin’ weak and my gun might blow but we gon’ be alright

Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright

Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Huh? We gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright

Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright

Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Huh? We gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me?

I keep my head up high
I cross my heart and hope to die
Lovin’ me is complicated
Too afraid, a lot of changes
I’m alright and you’re a favorite
Dark nights in my prayers

sometimes I did the same
Abusing my power full of resentment

Found myself screamin’ in the hotel room
I didn’t wanna self destruct, the evils of Lucy was all around me
So I went runnin’ for answers
