Proud (Jared Evan)

Growing up, I remember when I used to be alone in the world I was living in But now I'm on the road A different city every day and the whole world's listening I'd say my victories prove it And they can never take it from me All my enemies slow down 'Cause you know you'll never catch me Do it all for my people 'Cause they're the ones that give me pride I think feel there is life for my people Let's have a toast, just you and I [Chorus] Because I'm proud I turned my life upside down Said there's no one else with a reason to doubt Say what you like 'cause I don't hear it all I'm alright, I'm doing fine Just celebrating, be proud Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't (3x) My the times have changed I never had the attention but now it gets paid Took a long time for people to mention my name But what the f-ck is underrated when you're under the radar? You hearin' what I'm sayin' today I learned a whole lot of shit from the place that I came Now I think back when I was up in the fader Before I had the deal, before I became major And that's my life, it's all in a moment Before I met I'll Mind, before I exploded Said I was just a kid looking for a reason to focus Before I met I'll Mind, before I exploded And that's why I... Do it all for my people 'Cause they're the ones that give me pride I think feel there is life for my people Let's have a toast, just you and I [Chorus] Because I'm proud I turned my life upside down Said there's no one else with a reason to doubt Say what you like 'cause I don't hear it all I'm alright, I'm doing fine Just celebrating, be proud Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't (3x) They just wanna hate me No, they won't congratulate me, yea There ain't no say you're me Even if they're tryin' to imitate me But I... I don't pay too much mind because I'm proud And I sing it out loud [Chorus] Because I'm proud I turned my life upside down Said there's no one else with a reason to doubt Say what you like 'cause I don't hear it all I'm alright, I'm doing fine Just celebrating, be proud Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't
