Lyrics

Back To The Top

I once tasted my dream and let it slip right from my hand
The best feeling I ever had, and I gotta get it back again
They call me one hit wonder and two time loser, and I’m gonna make ‘em stop
I’m gonna do whatever it takes to climb Back To The Top

I’ve been caught in crime and done my time, now I’m trying to catch up
I’m running as fast as I can, but that’s not fast enough
Like a prison yard, it’s every man for himself, I’m just another crab in the pot
I’m gonna do whatever it takes to climb Back To The Top

I know I’m a star, that’s all I can see
And nobody can take my dream away from me

They say patience is a virtue, but the world don’t work like that
If you’ve got what I want or get in my way, you better watch your back
‘Cause I’ll pray to God or the Devil, whichever one suits my cause
I’m gonna do whatever it takes to climb Back To The Top

Yeah I’m gonna do whatever it takes to climb Back To The Top
