Needs

I need to find my balance, I need to keep on growing
I need to learn to handle my seesaw of emotions
I need to fix my damage, I need to get more focus
I need to learn to manage my time before it's over

I'm talking ups and downs; on the better days I see purple patches
Cloud nine, but the rainy days come and leave me like, "What on earth just happened?"
Fall down so I can get back up and then fall again, that's a certain pattern
That's what I've come to accept as normal; but it can't be normal, I need to reverse this damage

I need to fight this battle, I need to quit my habits
I need to find a talent, I need to find my magic

I need to rest less, what I really need is to be more restless
Find the energy and an avenue in which I can invest it
I need to find my motivation, refuel my engines
'Cause I can't be potential forever, y'all must see progression

I need to find new habits, I need social skills
I'm riding solo still, but my heart's laying on an open grill

Now whether it's right in it's cravings or not, I've always been the type that's gonna run from them
Maybe it's time that I face it and talk, and find out why it cannot stomach the
Fact that I'm tryna be patient and plot, my next step and also the life that's in front of me
The king of my castle's my brain and my thoughts, understand that you, heart, are under it

I gotta rein my heart in, I gotta use my conscience
I need my mojo back now, I used to be a problem
But I'm just broken glass now, I'm sure you see the conflict
But I can't keep writing 'bout this, I need to find new content

Now, I need something that's gon' make me feel for real inside, for real inside
Yeah I need something that's gon' heal my pride, heal my pride yeah
