lyrics

Verse 1 (Apollo)
Been stripped down and naked, friend-ships down they flakin'
They keep trying to break it but my spirit they can't take it
So, no sleeping in, I'm peeking in, I'm seeing them
Doing all this cool stuff, all these tours - How am I? Ever gonna be them?
No I mean where they are, no I mean like a star
No I mean going far, but I feel subpar, doubt creeping in
How am I ever gonna do that, how am I ever gonna do that?
Apollo, you're just not ever gonna be good enough would you please stop doing that
My confidence is foolish, my own thoughts are Judas
My own brain can bring me down, don't ever allow intruders
So even though I'm new-ish, and they skeptical of new-ish
I don't know what I'm doing but somehow I feel I can do it

Hook
I'm just feelin' I can make it, (feelin' I can make it)
I'm just feelin' I can make it, (feelin' I can make it)
I'm just feelin' I can make it, (feelin' I can make it)
I'm just feel in, I'm just feel in', I'm just feel in' I can make it
I'm just ah ah ah, (feelin' I can make it)
I'm just ah ah ah, (feelin' I can make it)
I'm just ah ah ah, (feelin' I can make it)
I'm just feel in, I'm just feel in', I'm just feel in' I can make it

Verse 2 (Apollo)
Two pennies in my pocket, every verse I got they mock it
Picked last on the blacktop, that white boy need to stop it
Til I came through and rocked it, looking back they nowhere now
One of the few who got out, so tell your dude, I got it
I'm just riding around my city, my neighborhood’s been looking bad
I ain't trying to be another would'a could'a should'a had
I grew up in a culture of cocaine addictions
Everybody had vision, but nobody ever really did it
I'm just wondering what I was given, and what the hell were they missing
You can look in my eyes dogg, all you see is persistence
All I see is low moments, but I never run from it, I own it
I don't know where I'm going, but I do know that I'm growing

Hook

Verse 3 (Apollo)
I’m stepping out in faith, that water'll hold my weight
This world told me I'm nothing, but I believe that I'm great
I believe in my self, I believe I can fly
My office covered in sticky notes, all they say is - just try
Try, try, try, try
And don't you ever give it up
Just dig a little deeper, don't you ever give it up
Every obstacle I face, another opportunity
And I've been at it so long I damn near got immunity
So I'ma fight tooth and nail, for my plight, this dude prevails
Even if I can't see it, I got to feel it like I'm using braille
Tell me where I'm going, I promise I'll exceed it
I don't know who I’m leading but somehow I believe it

Hook
