---Full lyrics below

1st verse
Once upon a time in the project halls
Another poor little girl used to stare at the stars
Mama said work hard it could all be yours
So the dreams of big things didn't seem so far
Mama tried her best and we didn't have much
But she gave us all her love so she gave us enough
When the times got rough mama got in a rut
Gave her life to the pipe and now she's giving us up
Now I'm growing up too fast
Mama said it had to happen or we wouldn't last
Then I started understanding why she looked bad
I didn't tell my baby sister when she finally passed
So now we borrow beg and steal just to get by
My sister asks why so I tell another lie
I hide the tears but I'm crying on the inside
My face is hard everything looks fine
Read between the lines

HOOK
Little bit of love but it's never what we needed
Searching for a family the streets couldn't be it
Life ain't fair and I'm startin to feel cheated
Trying to find a meaning looking for a reason

Verse 2
No money no food and we lived nowhere
Dirty clothes people laughed I remember the stares
But I had to be strong so I hid my fears
Feels like I lived a lifetime in 14 years
Different foster homes but don't none of them care
And I hate to see my sister cry 'cause that ain't fair
She's too young to understand how we ended up here
So I promise it'll change every single new year
But still it don't stop
And I know what's coming every time the ball drops
Another car ride another place to get dropped
A temporary spot just another pit stop
And even though it's been a struggle just to get by
I still believe I refuse to let my spirit die
That's why I greet another family with a phony smile
"cause they can never know the pain I feel inside
Read between the lines

HOOK
Little bit of love but it's never what we needed
Searching for a family the streets couldn't be it
Life ain't fair and I'm startin to feel cheated
Trying to find a meaning looking for a reason
One day we coming and the next day we leaving
Gotta keep the faith I don't wanna stop believing
Winter every season 'cause my heart started freezing
But you probably couldn't see it
You had to read between it

Verse 3
The room was pitch black when the chandelier fell
The first time he reached out I remember it well
Whispered lies in my ear 'cause he told he cared
I saw a different kind of phantom in the way that he stared
I kept it to myself
And prayed to mommy up in heaven 'cause I'm stuck in hell
Feeling trapped in a cell and it's just me
I used to cry on the pillow underneath the sheet
Another week another month and it's no end
Worried something's gonna happen i don't know when
But lately it's been getting harder just to pretend
'Cause once again I see the phantom when I see him
He sees it too now he's telling me to run away
But I got baby girl with me where we gonna stay
Still my face can't reveal what I feel inside
But you can see it if you look into my eyes
Read between the lines

BACKGROUND
My life,
It's my life
My my life
Yeah it's my life
