Lyrics

U Don't Know - Saint and Krystel

Written By: Tyler Ramos/Krystle Ochsner

Krystel:
Let me take you back, way back when I was young
Not quite a child, but a young woman
I thought I had it figured out
My life and love was on the rise
But then I fell down, way, way, way down
and felt my own demise

Cause U don't know
Where your life will go
But you control
How you get there
U don't know
where the road will end
but you can grow
and make your life feel relevant

Saint:
Now I got blood on my hands
and I got dirt on my feet
I got fire in my eyes
and I know you feel the heat
I'm just a young half-breed
comin up, tryin to eat
and I got so much to say
but at times I can't speak
if there's a lesson to be learned
who's supposed to teach
is it me or is this world growin cold
and how's it gonna be
when I'm fifty years old
cause everyone and everything is so filled with hate

U don't know
Where your life will go
But you control
How you get there
U don't know
where the road will end
but you can grow
and make your life feel relevant

Krystel:
It was all my own doin
though I didn't see it then
had to take the bad times
and learn to deal with them
finally learned to be strong
gotta go through the hurt
to be a good mom
and a good girl and a good wife
in this crazy world

U don't know
Where your life will go
But you control
How you get there
U don't know
where the road will end
but you can grow
and make your life feel relevant

Saint:
Now there really ain't nothin
that I won't do
and I'ma put this on my mama
that I'ma pull through
and I'ma hold up on the drama
to protect my crew
and I'ma stand tall and strong
like a man's supposed to
It's lace up them boot straps
and throw on them scully caps
check your heart son
cause once them guns clap
you got a band of brothers
and you joined at the hip
but not one of you youngins
can afford to slip

U don't know
Where your life will go
But you control
How you get there
U don't know
where the road will end
but you can grow
and make your life feel relevant

You don't know, you don't know, you don't, you don't (repeat 8x)

You don't know, no no
I said you don't know
where your life will go
where your life will go
