      About "Never Surrender"

      Lyrics for DJ Khaled - "Never Surrender"

      Keep your circle tight
      Trust no one, nobody (nobody, nobody, no no no)
      DJ Khaled!

      Gotta be careful who you trusting
      Be aware of your surrounding when you hustling
      Them niggas smiling at you ain't your friends, dawg
      All the real ones are dead or in the pen y'all
      You fuck with dude, he your day one
      Almost had it all then the day comes
      When they walking through your house with the strap out
      Pointing at your head, got the bread then you black out (yeah)
      Bright lights down the hallways
      Left his best friend for dead for the small wage (ay)
      They say that every dogs got a day coming
      It's like he seen a ghost but he ain't say nothing
      Eyes wide shut like you looking at me
      Window pain to the soul say they niggas happy
      But the pictures ain't say them words and we dry stomach
      The homie didn't keep it one hundred
      The cops doing roundups, say they got a suspect
      Finally got a name now, I'm still thinkin fuck that (fuck, that)
      For money, niggas murder what they close to (get this nigga)
      Entire families these mother fuckin' ghost you
      Smoke you, was it worth what the life was?
      Just prepared for the payback because it strikes cuz
      Was it worth what that life was?
      Prepare for the payback when it strikes cuz

      Cuz when you need it the most ain't no one ever around
      Cold world, cold world

      Yo, the pain's unbearable, remains unaware-able
      He fuck around jump off a building if you dare him to
      The greats they done already killed him, who you compare him to
      Figure out what he said will take a year or two
      Family over everything, skills over politics
      He don't need the accolades as long as you acknowledge it
      Just playing the hand you was dealt, no aces
      Betrayal is worse than death in most cases
      The world is filled with hypocrites that's so racist
      Multiple shots to the face, No chasers
      Mad cause you blew up quick and you excited
      Your man that you grew up with get you indicted
      This was your nigga, yo, for him you let the trigger go
      Found out at the trial they got audio and video
      Shit don't always happen how you plan it
      Get jammed up and really find out who your fam is
      You could feel the picture, you don't need to see the canvas
      That nigga Jay'll Hawk you, he don't even play for Kansas
      You know when it's someone you love the hurt's pure
      You front tryna hold it in, it hurts more
      He was right there back-to-back with me, my first war
      Even had a crack spot together, the first floor
      Used to buzz em in then meet him right by the first door
      That was 'prolly a year before I went on my first tour
      Friendship was worth more than a couple of ounces
      He was 'sposed to be with me arguing with the bouncers
      Instead you ended up somewhere far in the mountains
      Talking 'about what we was doing, what we was counting
      Nothing but old pictures of old sixes
      Old BM's with the kids, old snitches
      Two sides, both wishes
      Karma is the sister of life, they both bitches

      See there's a story in my life
      There's a story in my pain
      There's a story in my tears, oh-oh oh
      There's a story in me

      Yeah, for life
      Lord forgive me for my sins, I was chasin' ends
      And I'm into makin' money, I ain't in to making friends
      Cause these niggas rattin', I ain't finna take a chance
      Homie said he 'bout that action they grabbin' me take the stand, damn
      Say loyalty make a man, got a homie and he told
      I don't even shake his hand, I don't even crack a smile
      Knew him since a child, man this game so foul
      But niggas made vows to a code I never break
      Ridin' in the heavy weight
      Thirty-six O's in the bird, call it feather weight
      Never on time, when I show up I be ready late
      Niggas got fat while we starved they already ate
      And I'm trying to get full, masks on clips full
      If he got the money we attack him like a pitbull
      We sellin' soft, we sellin' hard like it's a brick store
      On my dick, nigga, thought that's what your bitch for
      Hah!

      My pain ain't never been told (ain't never been told)
      All the success that I'm suffering from
      Came from this knowledge I sold (this knowledge I sold)
      My family fucks with me
      And fought the enemy that stood in my way (my way)
      That's why I don't trust nobody
      And I doubt you'll ever see that day
      Where I surrender to you (surrender), surrender to you (surrender)
      Surrender to you, surrender to you
      Which I will never do

      'Cause when you need it the most ain't no one ever around (nobody's around)
      Cold world (cold world), cold world (mmm, yes it is, yeah)
      And the ones that you keep close are the ones will take you down (always take you down)
      Cold world (cold), a cold cold world

      Where I surrender to you, (surrender) surrender to you (surrender)
      Surrender to you, surrender to you
      Where I surrender to you, (surrender) surrender to you (surrender)
      Surrender to you, surrender to you
      Which I will never do
      Oh-oh oh whoa
      Oh-oh (oh-oh) oh-oh

      See there's a story in my life (Surrender)
      There's a story in my pain (Surrender)
      There's a story in my tears (Surrender)
      There's a story in me (I won't Surrender, I won't surrender, oh no no no)
