DMX – Skyscrapers Lyrics

Skyscrapers Lyrics – DMX

I’ve seen coal turned to diamonds and blind man’s visions become skyscrapers
What begun as a scene is no longer a dream
Let’s become skyscrapers
Skyscrapers

Whenever I went through something it brought me closer to God (Come on)
And I stayed in something so now I’m closer to God (Come on)
But closer is hard, the attacks get stronger (Uh-huh)
Become much harder to fight and they last longer (Yeah)
That’s what it’s always been, joy with the pain (Uh-huh, ooo)
Dark with the light, sun with the rain (Oh)
But with the right perspective there’s something to gain (What)
Look for the good in the bad, not the sun when it rains

I’ve seen coal turned to diamonds and blind man’s visions become skyscrapers
What begun as a scene is no longer a dream
Let’s become skyscrapers
Skyscrapers

I don’t like better, better gets you comfortable (Uh-huh)
Comfort puts you to sleep, need to know what’s up with you (What)
Hate and love relationship with what I love (Yeah)
Hate it because it kills me, love it for what it does (Why)
Every day I live, every day I die (Ugh, ugh)
Don’t always laugh but every day I cry (Ugh, cry)
Used to wonder why, now I enjoy the rain
Stronger with the struggle can’t live without the pain (What)
I just wanna be heard, fuck the fame (Yeah)
My words will live forever, fuck my name (Come on)
Father God, please give me the strength I need
I was born in the dirt, so it’s like you planted the seed

Let me grow

I’ve seen coal turned to diamonds and blind man’s visions become skyscrapers
What begun as a scene is no longer a dream
Let’s become skyscrapers

Put your hands high and touch the sky
Put your hands high and touch the skyscrapers
Put your hands high and touch the sky
Put your hands high and touch the skyscrapers
Breezes in the summer comet sky
And jungle city lights go flashing by
Feel full of, feel full, full

Reach for the sky, ooh, yeah
Reach for the sky
Reach for the sky, ooh, yeah
Reach for the sky
Reach for the sky
The sky ain’t gon’ hold you
The sky is not gon’ hold you
