the devil be tryin [lyrics]


the same thang

im running from, 

keeps catching me. 

feet going numb.  

i can't complain, 

this life is good,

but it gets hard

in this neighborhood.  

i went to church.  

it's been a while.  

i came to praise,

but im feeling doubt.  

should I be here? 

ive been sinning now.  

got a few scars  

that need healing now.  


the devil be tryin.  

the devil be tryin me.  


he's saying thangs

that I know is wrong

and I've come too far

to be led along.  

but im caving ino

the conniving ghost. 

can't let him in.  

gotta let him go.  


the devil be tryin. 

the devil be tryin me.  



I'm in the studio right now. waiting for this computer to load up so I can get back to work. just got back from a 3-day mini vaycay with my girls. much needed, yo. It came in perfect timing, I swear. They gave me the break and the strength I needed. Nothing compares to genuine, healthy friendships. 

Now that I'm back, I'm refocused on focus . It's so easy to get distracted by the problems in front of you and forget about all the good that lies ahead. 

I'm working on my next album, Cocoon.  All based on this growing process I'm going through right now. I'm sure you'll relate to it. I can't wait for you to hear it & say, "hey, I feel like that too!" ((: 

& yes, I'm battling stress.. and a very mild case of depression. But God is always good, the rain never lasts, & soon it will all make sense.

chasing trains.

I made a vow to myself to stop chasing trains. I figure, if I miss the train, maybe it wasn't meant for me. that goes for people and opportunities too.

I used to beat myself up about it. I'd say, "how could I be so stupid?"  but the lightbulb went off and I realized: there's always another one coming. probably bigger. usually better. what's the point in chasing what's already gone? 

what's meant for me will always be. indefinitely. I have enough faith and enough patience to know that more chances will come. and when it does, I'll be more prepared than I've ever been before.
