lyrics

Oh…oh….yeah yeah

Nothin’s gonna stop me now
Nothin’s gonna stop me now
I made it to this point somehow
Nothin’s gonna stop me now

I look across the water and all I see is the world’s greatest city staring back at me
Times are hard & moneys tight but I got these words to keep me through the dark cold lonely night
A woman of my word and Imma tell ya this gonna take it to the top so fast you might miss me
As I blur by don’t need a man my family’s love is what keeps me higher
Music my rage the lights hit the stage my guardian angel, glaze is an urban sage
This ride is never gonna end, death before I put down this pen
This world will take you out like an avalanche if you don’t keep pressin on you gotta move fast
If you wanna take it to the top just don’t stop – be ready!

Fearless, alone in the world, yup, we're peerless/ hear this, we're commandeering what you hold dearest/ here is the manifesto let's go, other rappers try so hard, we the best though/ cuz we be swimmin in beats, lyrical breaststroke/ we stay playin the angel, Depeche Mode/ and from the top of the mount, it's the sermon, flames coming out of my eyes, they still burnin/ it's been destiny way before i came along/ we got the cards, now hope we don't play em wrong/ but if it's fate there's no way we could mess it up/ so we break this bread and bless the cup, what!

There were moments that I thought I just might die, return to earth & watch my spirit fly
And maybe god will forgive my enemy of his sins but after all that pain no one wins
Manipulation, aggrevation, spent days in detention, been a prisioner for too lnog, bruised and battered
So fuckin’ wrong! Your depiction of the world but it’s okay yeah, it just made me stronger
There’s a flame inside it burns it yearns words come music flows everywhere my mind goes
Wind blows the sailing ships across the water to a destination, their destiny
I see what I need to see (oh-oh)
I know where I gotta go (I know where I gotta go)
I’m on my way working harder everyday
Nothin’s gonna stop me now don’t ask how!
