The Way I Really Act

lyrics

INTRO:
This goes out to anybody who done
Misinterpreted what I done had to say
You think I'm somebody and I'm completely not that person
You think I'm an ass
And you can call me that if you want to
But I just tell you what's on my mind
I keep it honest with you

VERSE 1:
They say that I'm too raw. No sophistication
I'm too hard to talk to. They think that I'm crazy
Is it 'cause they see something that's not me?
'Cause I act different than what they heard about me
If you were in my shoes and seen all you seen
And felt just like I felt then you wouldn't judge me
I'm just doing me. I ain't wasting my time
Ain't no holding back. I put it all on the line
I get to point quick. I don't play around.
And I can't help it if you don't like how that sounds
The head on my shoulders don't play no games
Life is too short to keep living that way
If you wanna know what's really on my mind
You need to pay attention and watch the signs
Maybe you'll notice that I'm just complex
I think outside the box and I'm not like the rest

CHORUS 1:
Now I know I piss you off
'Cause you don't like the way I really act
You keep telling me I'm stubborn
And my attitude is what's holding me back
There's a time and a place for my words
And that just could be a fact
But if I don't speak my mind..
Then what makes me different from the pack?

VERSE 2:
They say I'm intelligent. I got it going on
I'm all about my music 'cause my drive is strong
If I wanted to I could have what i want
Yall got a point, but sometimes life do you wrong
Things happen to us that changes our path
And no matter what we do sometimes we can't go back
So from what I've been through and all that I've learned
Is to go with your first mind even if ti burns
I've been cheated on and I've been hustled to
So you gotta understand I don't see things like you do
I come from the bottom of the middle class
Right next to dead broke. I gotta be an ass
I can't trust everyone but I still gotta smile.
I can't act clean when there's dirt in my file
All I can do is just do what I know
Hope that it works better than what I did before

CHORUS 2:
Now I know I piss you off
'Cause you don't like the way I really act
You keep telling me I'm stubborn
And my attitude is what's holding me back
There's a time and a place for my words
And that just could be a fact
But if I did it any different...
Would it really change where I'm at?

VERSE 3:
I don't mean no disrespect but if you think that I do it
You need to take a chill pill and listen to the music
I'm the type who always get you back no matter what
I'm an adult and I got morals too that I hold up
But what makes me different is just more than my name
I always say what's on my mind. I'm fearless, man
You'd rather hear it from me than someone who don't care about you
I keep it a hundred twenty four seven. Why should I lie to you?
There ain't no sugar in my speech and that gets me in trouble
I keep it raw so there's never a question about my motives
You used to dudes who out to play around
So when you hear something real you get intimidated by the sound
I ain't conceded. I just know myself
I'm a survivor. Talented. Don't need much help
Call me hard-headed. But I'm just headstrong
All this drama about me you need to push it along
You don't know what's in a book by reading a page
So you can't judge a whole man by one thing he say
You can call me what you want but at the end of the day
This is my life. And Imma say what I want to say

CHORUS 3:
Now I know I piss you off
'Cause you don't like the way I really act
You keep telling me I'm stubborn
And my attitude will always hold me back
There's a time and a place for my words
And that just could be a fact
But I told you that I'm different...
Why do you think they call me "Fat"?
