That Was Me LYRCIS by Russ:
[Chorus]
You know that was me, stayin’ up, puttin’ work in
Makin’ sure my family was good, we were hurtin’
Dad lost his job, bank tried to take the house
Mom lost her mind, I was tryin’ to make it out
You know that was me who came through when it mattered
You know that was me turnin’ loss into laughter
Divvy up the cash, makin’ sure we all eat
Bring us all together, makin’ sure we all speak

[Verse 1]
Wasn’t gettin’ sleep, I was focused on the prize
Heavy smokin’ weed, drinkin’ liquor every night
The girl I was in love with wasn’t just for me
I tried to show her things she didn’t wanna see
My parents were embarrassed, hated seein’ them like that
They carried me this far, it’s time I put ’em on my back
My songs are breakin’ through, my car was breakin’ down
Yeah the pressure grew, I had to make it now
[Pre-Chorus]
The awkward conversations, and the fights increase
The days were chaotic, so the nights were my peace
Locked in like woah-oh-oh
Woah (Woah)

[Chorus]
You know that was me, stayin’ up, puttin’ work in
Makin’ sure my family was good, we were hurtin’
Dad lost his job, bank tried to take the house
Mom lost her mind, I was tryin’ to make it out
You know that was me who came through when it mattered
You know that was me turnin’ loss into laughter
Divvy up the cash, makin’ sure we all eat
Bring us all together, makin’ sure we all speak

[Verse 2]
Tried to keep the peace, I was hidin’ how I felt
Only twenty-three, takin’ care of things myself
Payin’ all the bills, everyone was broke
All the while still, tryin’ to be the GOAT
I’m lonely all the time, but I’ve always held my tongue
It’s been six years since I was a brother or a son
My father lost his voice, he knows money speaks
He didn’t have a choice, had to come to me
[Pre-Chorus]
The awkward conversations, and the fights increase
The days were chaotic, so the nights were my peace
Locked in like woah-oh-oh
Woah (Woah)

[Chorus]
You know that was me, stayin’ up, puttin’ work in
Makin’ sure my family was good, we were hurtin’
Dad lost his job, bank tried to take the house
Mom lost her mind, I was tryin’ to make it out
You know that was me who came through when it mattered
You know that was me turnin’ loss into laughter
Divvy up the cash, makin’ sure we all eat
Bring us all together, makin’ sure we all speak

[Verse 3]
Cut off everybody, I ain’t got no time to party
Tryin’ to get these fans and build a motherfuckin’ army
‘Cause no one’s gon’ save us, but me, so I got us
I said that I would, I gotta keep my promise (Yeah)
Missed out on a lot, yeah my 20s were a blur
My mind was always focused on the future, that’s for sure
But I sacrificed, yet again and again
To make sure my fam doesn’t go through that again (For real)
[Bridge]
Ooh-oh, I’ve been on my own, my own (Ooh-oh)
Ooh-oh, I’ve been on my own, my own (Ooh-oh)

[Chorus]
You know that was me, stayin’ up, puttin’ work in
Makin’ sure my family was good, we were hurtin’
Dad lost his job, bank tried to take the house
Mom lost her mind, I was tryin’ to make it out
You know that was me who came through when it mattered
You know that was me turnin’ loss into laughter
Divvy up the cash, makin’ sure we all eat
Bring us all together, makin’ sure we all speak
