8 Mile - Eminem

Sometimes I just feel like,

quitting I still might

Why do I put upthis fight,

why do I still write

Sometimes it's hard enough

just dealin wit real life

Sometimes I wanna jump

on stage and just kill mics

And show these people

what my level of skills like

But I'm still white,

sometimes I just hate life

Something ain't right,

hit the brake lights

Case of the stage fright,

drawin a blank light

Da-duh-duh-da-da,

it ain't my fault

Great big eyeballs,

my insides crawl

And I clam up,

I just slam shut

I just can't do it,

my whole manhoods

Just been stripped,

I have just been vicked

So i must then get,

off this bus then split

Man fuck this shit yo,

I'm going the fuck home

World on my shoulders

as I run back to this 8 mile road

I'm a man,

I'ma make a new plan

Time for me to just stand up,

and travel new land

Time for me to just take matters

into my own hands

Once I'm over these tracks man

I'ma never look back

(8 mile road) And I'm gone,

I know right where I'm going

Sorry mama I'm grown,

I must travel alone

Ain't gunna follow these footsteps,

I'm making my own

Only way I know

how to escape from this 8 mile road

I'm walking these train tracks,

tryin to regain back

the spirit I had fore

I go back to the same crap

To the same plant,

in the same pants

Tryin to chase rap,

gotta move ASAP

And get a new plan,

mommas got a new mam

Poor little baby sister,

she don't understand

Sits in front of the T.V,

buries her nose in the pad

And just colors until the crayon

gets dull in her hand

While she colors her big brother,

her mother and dad

Ain't no tellin what really goes

on in her little head

Wish I could be the daddy

that neither one of us had

But I keep runnin from something

I never wanted so bad!

Sometimes I get upset,

cause I ain't blew up yet

It's like I grew up,

but I ain't grow me two nuts yet

Don't got a rep my step,

don't got enough pep

The pressures to much man,

I'm just tryin to do whats best

And I try, sit alone and I cry

Yo I won't tell no lie,

not a moment goes by

That I don't pray to the sky,

please I'm beggin you god

Please don't let me bitchin

holdin no regular job

Yo I hope you can hear me

homey wherever you are

Yo I'm tellin you dawg

I'm bailin this trailer tomorrow

Tell my mother I love her,

kiss baby sister goodbye

Say whenevr you need me baby

I'm never to far

But yo I gotta get out there

the only way that I know

And I'ma be back for you

the second that I blow

On everything I own,

I'll make it on my own

Off to work I go,

back to this 8 mile road

I'm a man,

I'ma make a new plan

Time for me to just stand up,

and travel new land

Time for me to just take matters

into my own hands

Once I'm over these tracks man

I'ma never look back

(8 mile road) And I'm gone,

I know right where I'm going

Sorry mama I'm grown,

I must travel alone

Ain't gunna follow these footsteps,

I'm making my own

Only way I know how to escape

from this 8 mile road

You gotta live it to feel it,

you didn't you wouldn't get it

Or see what the big deal is,

why it wasn't the skillest

To be walkin this boarder line

of Detroit city limits

It's different, it's a certain significance,

a certificate

Of authenticity,

you've never even seen

But it's everthing to me,

it's my credibility

You've never seen heard

smelled or met a real MC

Who's incredible upon

the same pedastal as me

But yet I'm still unsigned,

having a rough time

Sit on the porch wit all my friends

and kick dumb rhymes

Go to work and serve

MC's in the lunchline

But when it comes crunch time,

where do my punchlines go

Who must I show,

to bust my flow

Where must I go,

who must I know

Or am I just another crab

in the bucket

Cause I ain't havin no luck

with this little Rabbit so fuck it

Maybe I need a new outlet,

I'm startin to doubt shit

I'm feelin a little skeptical

who I hang out with

I look like a bum,

yo my clothes ain't about shit

At the salvation army

tryin to salvage an outfit

And it's cold tryin to travel this raod

Plus I feel like on stuck

in this battlin mode

My defenses are so up,

and one thing I don't want

Is pity from no one,

this city is no fun

There is no sun,

and it's so dark

Sometimes I just feel like

I being pulled apart

From each one of my limbs,

by each one of my friends

It's enough to just make me

wanna jump out of my skin

Sometimes I feel like a robot,

sometimes I just know not

What I'm doin I just blow,

my head is a stove top

I just explode,

the kettle gets so hot

Sometimes my mouth just overloads

the ass that I don't got

But I've learned,

it's time for me to u-turn

Yo it only takes one time

for me to get burned

Ain't no falling no next time

I meet a new girl

I can no longer play stupid

or be immature

I got every ingredient,

all I need is the courage

Like I already got the beat,

all I need is the words

 

Got the urge,

suddenly it's a surge

Suddenly a new burst

of energy has ocurred

Time to show these free world

leaders at three in the third

I am no longer scared now,

I'm free as a bird

Then I turn and cross

over the median curb

Hit the verbs and all you see

is a blur from 8 mile road

I'm a man,

I'ma make a new plan

Time for me to just stand up,

and travel new land

Time for me to just take matters

into my own hands

Once I'm over these tracks man

I'ma never look back

(8 mile road) And I'm gone,

I know right where I'm going

Sorry mama I'm grown,

I must travel alone

Ain't gunna follow these footsteps,

I'm making my own

Only way I know how to escape

from this 8 mile road
