August Alsina - Look At How Far I've Come Lyrics

Not a day goes by, I don't think to myself
And remember the times there was no one else
I felt so alone, there was pain that I felt
Cause even self made niggas don't wanna do it by themselves
I looked to the hills, someone's coming for help
And he gave me the will when there was nothing left
Lord knows that I tried, Lord knows that I cried
Those nights I couldn't eat, had to swallow my pride
But through it all, one thing remained
I kept it real, I stayed the same
And I made it through a lot of pain
Had a lot of sleepless nights, but still I have to fight
So I went and got up out the dirt
When they told me it would never work
And the bad just kept on getting worse
Had to tell myself a few words from the heart

Look at how far I've come and I'm here, y'all
If you think nobody feels you, best believe I know
Look, I can't turn back now when they've killed y'all
And I can't pay all these bills, y'all, better know one thing for sure
Look at how far I've come, even though I'm outchea stressing
Still I gotta do my best and let it go
So I can't look back now
I gotta keep pressing on, 'til I make it, somehow

I know some days you feel like giving up
Feel like time is running out and all you have is doubt
Tryna keep your head up, but you fed up, tryna stack your bread up
Like how come the outcome of my income isn't dough comin'?
No one is helpin', they just out for theirself
Outchea tryna make a way, hoping there's a better day
And when you think that you're done
And the storm is raging
Look through the clouds and you can see the sun
Sometimes I know it's hard and life can have you stressing
But you should count your blessings in every single lesson you've learned
It takes hard work in getting up out the dirt
But how could you know pleasure, if you never knew hurt?
We all go through our share of pain, ups and downs
For reasons that I can't explain
But when it's all said and done
And you think you've run as far as you can run

Look at how far I've come and I'm here, y'all
If you think nobody feels you, best believe I know
Look, I can't turn back now when they've killed y'all
And I can't pay all these bills, y'all, better know one thing for sure
Look at how far I've come, even though I'm outchea stressing
Still I gotta do my best and let it go
So I can't look back now
I gotta keep pressing on, 'til I make it, somehow

'Til I make it, somehow, I'm gonna make it, somehow
'Til I make it, somehow, 'til I make it
So I know I can't look back know
I gotta keep pressing on, 'til I make it, somehow

    This song reminds me of my past n every time I hear i just burst into tears but god had something plans for me n that is something I will be waiting for better days to come 💯 but just take this from me ppl have gone through worse things than others n that could be trying to survive on the streets or fighting cancer or strugglen form depression or whatever it is look god has a plan for you yeah it my be a bumpy road for you but there always some thing that's gonna come out good. You just got to be patient with him even if i it mans some one gets hurt he put you on this earth for a reason a purpose that he want you to reach to change something or someone if you believe Him n your self you can do what you want to do just have faith n y'all get through it .

  29. Deion Woods

    I think about all the trials and tribulations I went through as a child alone. My mom and I were homeless , I was bullied all throughout elementary and middle school, lost my mom to cancer and dealt with troubles. But look at me now 3.5 GPA, family that loves me, have a strong relationship with God and was inducted into NSHSS. Let me tell y'all God is real He blessed me and is continuing to bless me. If y'all think life is hard look at Jesus. He was persecuted, rejected and looked like he was defeated. But it was for a reason. He did it to defeat sin and died for us so we can live. The wage of sin is death but because Jesus lives we get to face tomorrow and live for him. Now that's love. So my words to y'all is to keep pushing and striving it's all gonna work out. God is gonna bless you and bring more blessings that are rich in quality and its gonna promote you. Listen we all go through a season but Joy comes in the morning. It may take a while but Trust in His word. His timing is awesome and amazing. You may get frustrated but you were created on this Earth for a purpose and best believe God is gonna do it . If He did it for me he'll do it for you. God bless anyone who is reading this.
