NF “Hope” Lyrics 




I’m on my way, I’m coming

Don’t, don’t lose faith in me

I know you’ve been waiting

I know you’ve been praying for my soul

Hope, hope

Thirty years you been dragging your feet

Telling me I’m the reason we’re stagnant

Thirty years you’ve been claiming your rightness

And promising progress, but where’s it at?

I don’t want you to feel like a failure (Failure)

I know this hurts (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 people something different

So without further ado, I’d like to introduce my

My album, my album, my album, my album, my album, my album


Verse 1

What’s my definition of success?

Listening to what your heart says

Standing up for what you know is right

While everybody else is

Tucking their tail between their legs 

What’s my definition of success?

Creating something no one else can

Being brave enough to dream big

Grinding when you’re told to just quit

Giving more when you got nothing 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 nothing

Ain’t afraid to walk away from more profit

‘Cause they’d rather do something 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 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 cross road who had no hope but I changed that

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

Years of my life carrying a lot of baggage that I should’ve walked away from

Years of my life wishing I was someone different, looking for some validation

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

They get it

Verse 2

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 want to get the 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

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 going to have to worry about

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

Mama, I forgive you

I just don’t want him to grow up thinking that he’ll never be enough


Thirty years of running, thirty years of searching

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

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—

I’m taking the reins.
