Family ties (feat Drey)

from by JXD





You got my back right?
Ok, let’s go.
I could wish on a star
couldn’t go far acting like a rock star
This is more than I could ask for
some friends are thin, leave for the pool while you stuck in the den
I’m looking for win win, without my kin
this world full of sin, My odds are thin
moving solo like nomad in a mindless state
My fam is like Glad, stretch but don’t brake
I’m sharing the wealth too, give and take
high class, my fam is gourmet (whoa)
Words are easy, truth likes the page.
Their love is soothing, helps calm my rage
Without them would have failed in the young days.
Support you need when skies are gray.
Like a rat in a tunnel, guide through the maze
You can stay mad, but they’ll love you anyway

Oh, They hold me down
Oh, They make me smile
Oh, They got my back
It’s a link that last
Dream come true,
Oh, the things they do
Oh, The sacrifice
The ties that bind

Fact not fiction, not a stab in the night
Feel like doing wrong, invisible leash yanked tight
We all do wrong, I want the most to be right
When the room is pitch dark they’re my night light
Call me Gizmo, because I’m like Bright Light
not overbearing, Goldilocks, their just right
Stake my claim on my family rights

I’ll admit, not really close to some
Aunts and cousins I don’t even know
Barely remember their names, ashamed of myself
I should reach out, not sure if they’ll do the same
Forget it, I’ll use my music to bridge the gap
If you don’t understand me, this is how I get down jack
Hug me, judge me, I don’t really care
I’m putting my soul on the line, no lights or fanfare

You got my back right? . . .
Yeah, I know you would . . .
Always holding me down. I love you . . .
I got you too, don’t worry . . .

Sing it Drey!
