Dee-1 – I Don’t Wanna Let You Down (feat. Cyrus Deshield)

[Verse 1: Dee-1 and Cyrus DeShield]
I don’t wanna let you down
So, I’m fighting with these poems I’m writing
Treating this like my last, hoping I leave em’ enlightened
I was given a gift plus I was given time
Talented with the rhymes, that’s why
I don’t wanna let you down
If you know me, then you know I’ve been trying
If I act like I’m perfect, then you know I’ve been lying
But I promise I’m worth it, steady trying to improve
It ain’t easy walking in my shoes, but
I don’t wanna let you down
And I know I’m better when I consult you
I don’t wanna be lukewarm, I don’t wanna insult you
And I know that you watching, countless times you forgave me
This for all my family that raised me
I don’t wanna let you down
I just wanna make you proud, wanna make you smile
I just wanna make you proud to call me your child
I just want you, want you to purify my heart
These are my inner-most thoughts
I don’t wanna let you down

[Chorus: Cyrus DeShield]
I used to hang my head low
Worried bout’ which way I was to go
I don’t wanna let you down
Remember nights in the cold
I had to go get it on my own
I don’t wanna let you down
They said it’s nothing a heart can take
I don’t wanna let you down
But, if I do, then my heart gon break
I don’t wanna let you down

[Verse 2: Dee-1]
I been eating once a day, I’ve been sleeping less
Marathons recording, they say I need to rest
Still no alcohol or weed when I deal with stress
I gotta give you my best
I don’t wanna let you down
Struggling with my past, yeah I’ve been going through it
This type of pain, most people can’t relate to it
Some say I’m going off the deep end
I won’t complain long as I’m breathing
I don’t wanna let you down
Yeah, tryna set an example that’s good
We need more heroes in the hood
Yeah, and people, people all around me getting famous
They say I need to switch lanes, but
I don’t wanna let you down
I’ma get what’s ever meant for me
Until the day, you come and send for me
I’m battling Goliaths everyday
I pray you hear me when I say
I don’t wanna let you down

[Chorus: Cyrus DeShield]
I used to hang my head low
Worried bout’ which way to go
I don’t wanna let you down
Remember nights in the cold
I had to go get it on my own
I don’t wanna let you down
They said it’s nothing a heart can take
I don’t wanna let you down
But, if I do, then my heart gon break
I don’t wanna let you down

[Verse 3: Cyrus DeShield]
I don’t wanna let you down
Yeah, they tell me nothing’s promised, but
I’ll never let you down
Everytime he put me though tests, I get the answer now
They say your strongest soldiers are who humble and believe
Without a doubt
Oceans are over, flow just like a tidal wave
Lift my head to sky, hoping for brighter days
Lord knows it ain’t easy
But, I just gotta make you proud again
I don’t wanna let you down

[Chorus: Cyrus DeShield]
I used to hang my head low
Worried bout’ which way to go
I don’t wanna let you down
Remember nights in the cold
I had to go get it on my own
I don’t wanna let you down
They said it’s nothing a heart can take
I don’t wanna let you down
But, if I do, then my heart gon break
I don’t wanna let you down
