Self Made Lyrics

Born a survivor like father like gun

Built to outlast where you came from

Nothing comes easy when nothing is handed to you

 

Taught yourself how to turn the tides

Walk ashore before the waters rise

Even when you're down you're still coming through

 

Making diamonds out of dust

 

You'll shine before you turn to rust

 

Never by the book always underestimated

It's hard to believe the life that you created

 

Self made

 

Learned from the will of the working man

Breaking hard ground for a piece of land

Up before the sun and down before the rising moon

 

Oh fought for the things that were never yours

Settle for less and hope for more

God and pouring rain never come too soon

Making diamonds out of dust

 

Who you are is who you trust

 

Never by the book always underestimated

It's hard to believe the life that you created

The impossible endeavor never would you trade

It's a legacy that you take to the grave

Self made self made

 

Live and die by the chance we're taking

 

Money don't buy the life that we're making

Never by the book always underestimated

It's hard to believe the life that you created

 

The impossible endeavor never would you trade

It's a legacy that you take to the grave

Self made self made

 

Live and die by the chance we're taking

Self made

Money don't buy the life that we're making

Self made

Live and die by the chance we're taking

Self made

Money don't buy the life that we're making

Self made

Live and die by the chance we're taking

Self made

Money don't buy the life that we're making
