Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - I Tried Lyrics

(feat. Akon)

[Intro: Wish Bone]
You know aint nothin' come easy, you gotta try real real hard
I tried hard, but I guess I gotta try harder

[Chorus: Akon]
I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
It ain't my fault cuz I try to get away but trouble follows me,
And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

But until there, I'll be posted up right here rain sleet hail snow
But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough

[Verse 1: Krayzie Bone]
First let me explain that I'm just a black man,
And I come from the darkside, so I'm havin a hard time stayin on track man,
My mind be racin, and I don't even know what I'm chasin (yeah)
Been in and out of relationships, I'm startin to see that it's me where the complications at
But I'm layin back, prayin that, you can't have piece of mind of me
I thought I was right but really I'm wrong, in the end I was too blind to see
I was in the fast lane chasin my dream
but then it seem when the fame and cash came, they just got me
Goin crazyyyy, lately I been so faded tryna erase it
But I just can't cuz the drama just comes greater
And I been in so many collisions by puttin shit off till later

[Chorus: Akon]
I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
Ain't my fault cuz I try to get away but trouble follows me,
And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain sleet hail snow
But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough

[Verse 2: Layzie Bone]
It's like I'm takin five steps forward, and ten steps back
Tryna get ahead of the game but I can't seem to get it on track
And I keep runnin away the ones that say they love me the most
How could I create the distance when it's supposed to be close? And uh
I just don't know but I be out here fightin demons and, it's like a curse that I can't shake this part of Cleveland and
Lord, would you help me? And stop this pain
I keep on inflicting on my family
Hustlin and gamblin, drinkin and scammin
And losin sight of whats supposed to be handlin
It's hard to manage cuz every days a challenge and man
I'm slippin can't lose my balance and try not to panic

[Chorus: Akon]
I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
Ain't my fault cuz I try to get away but trouble follows me,
And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain sleet hail snow
But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough

[Verse 3: Wish Bone]
I see thangs won't change I'm stuck in the game as soon as I get out it keeps pullin me
back mayne got me doin' dirty dirt so used to this hustlin' money that I don't understand
how 9 to 5 work studied on the streets, hustlers know what I mean hustlers ballin in force
I'm tryna make that major league so we never leave never, til' the sun came up gotta get it
nope no leavin no rush today games they play gotta go hard to get what u put in if you fall
off then it's all on you gotta watch what you sign to try so hard but I won't play the fool

[Chorus: Akon]
I tried so hard, can't seem to get away from misery,
Man I tried so hard, but always be a victim of these streets,
Ain't my fault cos I try to get away but trouble follows me,
And still I try so hard, hopin one day they'll come and rescue me,

But until then, I'll be posted up right here rain sleet hail snow
But until then, I'll be posted up right here with my heat gettin dough
