Great song, Lyrics are here:

Check it out,1,2,hey yo,hey yo

I came a long way since back in the day
From a teenager trying to make a rap in this way
Ever since I was a kid I had something to say
Rocking mics was a dream I didn't care about pay
I sacrificed late nights and going out with my friends
Just to stay home alone with my pad and my pen
Had my eyes on my prize,my mind on my goal
As I carved these rhymes out with my heart and my soul
I didn't have a CD; all I had was a tape
on the dole thru my flow was my only escape
From a world where they didn't wanna see me prevail
Didn't wanna see me take it all
They'd rather see me fail

It's like...

[Chorus]
I was down and out
struggling
wondered how I'm gonna make it thru
I got a dream (I got a dream)
Holding on (I'm gonna hold on)
I can't let go cos you gotta make it come true

Hey yo
I got a dream to make it big in New York
Give up the drugs and alcohol
I didn't want to distort
My vision to be living life to the full
And I wouldn't of made it if wasn't for you
You picked me up everytime that I fell
when I was going thru hell you told me that I would prevail
you said I had exactly what it took to be great
That I was young and in the future and what a man I would make
It's like you saw something in me I couldn't see
you said I would suceed and be anything I wanted to be
I'm 23 and I just wanna be me
wanna be free
wanna be everything I can be
But I don't have many choices
Can't afford to be wrong
All I do is try to stay true to the words of my song
Just don't hesitate and wait too long
cos like a dream when you wake up its gone...its gone

[Chorus]
I was down and out
struggling
wondered how I was gonna make it thru(I had no money in my pockets)
I got a dream(all I had was a pad and a pen)
Holding on (that's all I ever needed)
I won't let go cos you gotta make it come true

Hey yo
It was a sunny day and we were feeling high
Jamming the song underneath the baby blue sky
Thinking back in the times when we were so poor
Remember the kids use to laugh at the clothes we wore
we always knew one day that things were gonna change
And from that day I was never gonna be the same
I went to sleep that night;I dreamt I touched the sky
And ever since I've been trying to keep my dream alive
So when you see this Scribe, dropping the Ill'ed rhyme
To find how I'm living mine in this day and time
I'm working 9 to 5;I'm slaving over beats
It's hard work living the dream I hardly ever sleep
I'm in the rythum deep,yo just trying to do my thing
Its funny when you shine and people hate to see the gleam
No matter what they say keep on doing what you do
And don't give up cos only you can make that dream come true

It's like...

[Chorus]
I was down and out (I was way out)
Struggling
wondered how I'm gonna make it thru
I got a dream
Holding on
I can't let go cos you gotta make it come true

I was down and out...
wondered how...
I got a dream...
I won't let go cos you got...
