NF HOPE Lyrics

[Part 1]


[Intro: NF]


Yeah, I'm on my way, I'm comin'

Don't, don't lose faith in me

I know you've been waiting

I know you've been prayin' for my soul

Hope, hope

Thirty years you been draggin' your feet, tellin' me I'm the reason we're stagnant

Thirty years you've been claiming you're honest and promising progress, well, where's it at?

I don't want you to feel like a failure

I know this hurts

But I gave you your chance to deliver

Now it's my turn

Don't get me wrong

Nate, you've had a great run

But it's time to give the people somethin' different

So without further ado, I'd

Like to introduce my

My album (My album)

My album (My album), my album

My album (My album), my album (My album), my album (My album)

My album—



[Verse 1: NF]

What's my definition of success? (Of success)

Listening to what your heart says (Your heart says)

Standing up for what you know is (Is)

Right, while everybody else is (Is)

Tucking their tail between their legs (Okay)

What's my definition of success? (Of success)

Creating something no one else can (Else can)

Being brave enough to dream big (Big)

Grinding when you're told to just quit (Quit)

Giving more when you got nothing left (Left)

It's a person that'll take a chance on

Something they were told could never happen

It's a person that can see the bright side

Through the dark times when there ain't one

It's when someone who ain't never had nothin'

Ain't afraid to walk away from more profit

'Cause they'd rather do somethin' that they really love and take the pay cut

It's a person that would never waiver

Or change who they are

Just to try to and gain some credibility

So they could feel accepted by a stranger

It's a person that can take the failures in their life and turn them into motivation

It's believing in yourself when no one else does, it's amazing

What a little bit of faith can do if you don't even believe in you

Why would you think or expect anybody else that's around you to?

I done did things that I regret

I done said things I can't take back

Was a lost soul at a crossroad who had no hope, but I changed that

I spent years of my life holdin' on to things I never should've kept, full of hatred

Years of my life carryin' a lot of baggage that I should've walked away from

Years of my life wishin' I was someone different, lookin' for some validation

Years of my life tryna fill the void, pretending I was in—

They get it


[Interlude: Fleurie]

Insidious is blind inception

What's reality with all these questions?

Feels like I missed my alarm and slept in

Slept in

Broken legs, but I chase perfection

These walls are my blank expression

My mind is a home I'm trapped in

And it's lonely inside this—


[Verse 2: NF]

Growing pain's a necessary evil

Difficult to go through, yes, but beneficial

Some would say having a mental breakdown is a negative thing

Which on one hand, I agree with

On the other hand, it was the push I needed

To get help and start the healing process, see

If I'd have never hit rock bottom

Would I be the person that I am today?

I don't believe so

I'm a prime example of what happens when you choose to not accept defeat and face your demons

Took me thirty years to realize that if you wanna get that opportunity

To be the greatest version of yourself, sometimes you got to be someone you're not

To hear the voice of reason

Having kids will make you really take a step back and look in the mirror

At least for me, that's what it did, I


[Part 2]


[Outro: NF]

Wake up every day and pick my son up

Hold him in my arms and let him know he's loved (Loved)

Standing by the window, questioning if dad is ever going to show up (Up)

Isn't something he's goin' to have to worry 'bout

Don't get it twisted, that wasn't a shot

Mama, I forgive you

I just don't want him to grow up thinkin' that he'll never be enough

Thirty years of running, thirty years of searchin'

Thirty years of hurting, thirty years of pain

Thirty years of fearful, thirty years of anger

Thirty years of empty, thirty years of shame

Thirty years of broken, thirty years of anguish

Thirty years of hopeless, thirty years of (Hey)

Thirty years of never, thirty years of maybe

Thirty years of later, thirty years of fake

Thirty years of hollow, thirty years of sorrow

Thirty years of darkness, thirty years of (Nate)

Thirty years of baggage, thirty years of sadness

Thirty years of stagnant, thirty years of chains

Thirty years of anxious, thirty years of suffering

Thirty years of torment, thirty years of (Wait)

Thirty years of bitter, thirty years of lonely

Thirty years of pushing everyone away ('Way)

(You'll never evolve) I know I can change

(We are not enough) We are not the same

(You don't have the heart) You don't have the strength

(You don't have the will) You don't have the faith

(You'll never be loved, you'll never be safe

Might as well give up) Not running away

(You don't have the guts) You're the one afraid

(I'm the one in charge)

I'm taking the— (No)

I'm taking the
