Lyrics

[Hook]
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t walk away
From the one who loves you
Thinking of you
You would struggle
Then you would pray
Don’t you forget
Don’t you forget
Don’t you forget
Who made a way
He didn’t bless you
Call you special
For you just to fall away

[Verse 1]
I have my moments when I feel like it’s all good
And if I forget to pray it’s understood
Poverty will motivate you in a way that money never could
And some blessings keep you off ya knees longer than they should
I was overly dedicated
To being elevated
Hated, pushed down
Like the gas I accelerated
Feel I made it on my own
My grind got me here alone
Lying to myself, my basic instinct like Sharon Stone
You brought me out of Egypt
Now my money right I’m eating
I’m relieved, I’mma need my
Mornings, evenings, and my weekends back
When everything is wrong I’m in full agreement
But when everything all right I show partial allegiance
I’m wishy-washy
Probably Deuteronomy 8:11
Would explain my current state of autonomy
My heart in its entirety is at war with piety
False idol
Slum god
Counterfeit deity
The “I”

[Hook]
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t walk away
From the one who loves you
Thinking of you
You would struggle
Then you would pray
Don’t you forget
Don’t you forget
Don’t you forget
Who made a way
He didn’t bless you
Call you special
For you just to fall away

[Verse 2]
Life ain’t promised
Except for those with the promise
Coulda lied about my problems
But I chose to be honest
They be asking, “Bombay
What’s the problem with diamonds
What’s ya issue with this money
We supposed to be shining”
That’s the issue, ’cause you think the shining comes from the diamonds
That’ll make you ignorant and broke
The shining come from the knowledge
That’s why if you gotta arm they let you dodge grades in college
Million-dollar contracts but you getting robbed in the fine print
If you’re illiterate ya success may be illegitimate
All you care about is money
So do the people you are dealing with
You think that they care about you, no
Messiah care about you, though
They only care about what they can’t do without you
Introduce you to an unfamiliar lifestyle that steals ya faith
Now being far away from Yah is a familiar place
Hustlers repent
Take advantage of His grace
In faith
He call us back
Way before we walk away
Okay?

[Hook]
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t turn yo back
Don’t walk away
From the one who loves you
Thinking of you
You would struggle
Then you would pray
Don’t you forget
Don’t you forget
Don’t you forget
Who made a way
He didn’t bless you
Call you special
For you just to fall away
