Rexx life raj - Optimistic

Optimistic
Tryna stay optimistic
Ooh, life moves with a quickness
And switches in an instance
I pray I stay optimistic
Hmm, hmm, hmm
I pray I stay optimistic
Hmm, hmm, hmm

Look, ayy
Make sure you checkin' on me, any friend of me would
I light that Palo Santo up, make sure the energy good
I thought the whole purpose of stackin', was to get out the hood
Traveled the world and learned some things, I couldn't get out the hood
I learned my patience as a back up, when I sat on that wood
Fell on my ass but I got back up, like a real nigga should, uh
'Cause ain't no backup, ain't no plan b, on mammy
I know what I am now, I know what I can be
An overthinker, my mind be movin' and scramblin'
Like fried eggs but when I sang it, it's candy, uh
Niggas throw so much salt, it look sandy
I hope that all of the hate is makin' you happy (I hope you niggas happy)


Optimistic (ooh, whoa)
Tryna stay optimistic (tryna stay optimistic)
Ooh, life moves with a quickness (ooh, whoa)
And switches (and switches), in an instance
I pray I stay optimistic
Hmm, hmm, hmm
I pray I stay optimistic
Hmm, hmm, hmm

Uh, my mind is way up, way up (way, way, way, way)
I see the homies, I tell all them niggas stay up
I lift my hands, thank the Lord, each day I wake up
Must be a baker the way I'm gettin' my cake up
Listen
The usual written prescription
Is bein' grateful every day for all that you been given
Although you hurtin' and you flirtin' with urgent decisions
The pain reminds you, you alive, still you barely livin'
Family business barely up
Bills hittin' my celly up
My cousin locked up for years, I can't just hit my relly up
I know that God ain't made me average, anything but regular
Why my faith is in the clouds but my actions secular?
Ain't have shit for breakfast to my recollection
Everybody worried 'bout the shut down, who wins the next election
To keep it honest, worryin' ain't part of my tradition
I was taught to practice the art of stayin' forever optimistic

Optimistic (ooh, whoa)
Tryna stay optimistic (tryna stay optimistic)
Ooh, life moves with a quickness (ooh, whoa)
And switches (and switches), in an instance
I pray I stay optimistic
Hmm, hmm, hmm
I pray I stay optimistic
Hmm, hmm, hmm
