​If I Could

This song is by Frankie Vado.

I hope you understand I'm not trying to be no preacher. And I'm not looking for no pity either. Alotta things I wish I could change. Been a crazy life so far and I'm still young. Know alotta people can relate. I'll just tell you a little bit about where I'm from.

I'm from a place where people drink to bury pain
Chuggin' Mad Dogs and Silver Thunders and Hurricanes
Puffin' Mary Jane just to try to stay a little sane
Fiends go insane just tryin' to find that little vein

I know some people that would die for a little fame
I know some people taking pride having little shame
Maybe it's only me; I find that shit a little strange
Anybody else agree? I think we need a little change

If I could rule the world things would be a lot different
Used to be poverty stricken, without a pot to piss in
I had to piss in the streets whenever we got evicted
So it's no wonder why I spit with alotta conviction

If I could rule the world, you better believe
We'd get everything we'd ever wanted, everything we'd ever need
Blind lead the blind; it's time to let 'em see
Set 'em free, let 'em fly, let 'em dream

If I could rule the world
Everyone could live their dreams
No more war with poverty
So come and fly away with me
If I... If I... If I could rule the world

I literally came from nothing, no exaggeration
Daddy never stuck around, Mommy died young
I learned to survive young, more motivation
No excuses, I gotta keep it moving
I g-g-g-gotta make it

See I was born in the gutter
Came out of the rubble
So I'm rhyming for anyone that ever truly struggled

Gotta dream big; it's the only way I know how to be
Daddy never there brought a higher caliber outta me
Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, ain't you proud of me?
Don't you kinda sorta regret it for walking out on me?
Now you gotta witness me watching the world on top of my balcony
You really wanna talk, it's cool, but try to shout to me

I ain't listening; I'm on the verge of living my dream
And I ain't missing it
I would send my regards but I ain't spending no money shipping it
I know it's sickening if I could rule the world it would be different

If I could rule the world
Everyone could live their dreams
No more war with poverty
So come and fly away with me
If I... If I... If I could rule the world

If I could rule the world
Then we could fly away
Don't gotta feel no pain
Don't gotta die today

See we could live a dream
Don't gotta deal with stress
Don't gotta be so broke
Don't gotta deal with debt

If I could rule the world
Then we could fly away
Don't gotta feel no pain
Don't gotta die today

See we could live a dream
Don't gotta deal with stress
Don't gotta be so broke
Don't gotta deal with debt

Look, I'm a product of my environment
Born in a city that's dying to see me dying
And trying to sell me hope but I'm broke so I ain't buying it
Already got a grave but I ain't ready to lie in it

Sick and tired of being sick and tired of everything
Sick of bill collectors calling my house, just let it ring
Wishing for better things, wish I could fly away
Wish I had a set of wings
If I could rule the world

X2
If I could rule the world
Everyone could live their dreams
No more war with poverty
So come and fly away with me
If I... If I... If I could rule the world
