yU ~ I Believe ft. Duff ((Single))

For Martin Luther King Jr. DayyU wanted to share a song that relates his vision of belief.  
"Today's a special day in remembrance of a man that resembled the spirit of a leader at a time where many just followed suit & went with the tide. Another example of how powerful the spoken word can be, changing the lives of many by something as simple as a thought; amplified by the tone of his voice. When iIm onstage, sometimes I think of Martin & Malcolm. I think of how they fueled their supporters with inspiration to push forward. I wrote "I Believe" at a time when I myself was going thru a lot, and was trying to fine tune my focus. Somehow after talking to my creator, & Charlie Ross (who lived in Okinawa, Japan at the time), I was given the music & this is what came from it." - yU

I Believe (Lyrics)

1st verse 
I Believe.. 
That everything happens at its own pace. 
That's why the letter y in my name, is lowercase 
Showing that growth, come from young & up and coming. 
Summoned by the ones before me.. To continue the story of 
A warrior wit a blade that's sharpened 
Starving, heart hardened but still marching 
I am a writer with a lighter walking in infinite darkness 
We gotta keep the flame lit, while they talkin the same sh.. 
My aura's of the ancients, I can't sit 
Its against nature for me to be just complacent 
Since I see it, then I must strive to be it.. Right?? 
I draw from dreams. Cuz they're talking to me at night 
Loud and clear, and I never bow to fear.. greater 
Thoughts I have right now, happen some years later 
The weird way the universe works, 
trust is the crust of life's pie, I succeed becuz I.. Believe 
Now people if u're wit me say, "uhh hugh" 
And people if u're wit me say, "uhh hugh" 
U gotta keep ya head up 
"uhh hugh" 
And it all 'll get better, I believe 
2nd Verse 

Aiiight, u got a goal in mind. Now that's a good start. 
Let people know what u're crafting, they'll pull it apart 
And say it needs some of this, and a lil bit of that 
Before u put the finishing touch, their giving it the axe 
And start chopping down a young tree 
That's why my ideas are unseen, cuz haters live amongst me 
Obviously, they aint seeing it from the same angle 
Hear what u saying, take notes 
But still it won't change you 
That criticism is a good thing, 
But a sense of self worth is a trait that's sure to make king 
Of a peasant who thought that he's worth less than 
They estimating to play God, but F- them 
Your concern is to claim what u've earned 
Live and learn as the tables turn 
Your bond is your word 
Now whether you stick to it's up to you 
Hopefully, you'll be on ur deen 
Becuz I Believe.. 
3rd Verse 

Either believe or be left 
While alive I strive, so to stop is like death 
What I rep, is taking slow steps to the top tier 
That way I know that that growth is just how I got there 
Not scared, powerful words that my pops said 
Holding my head, eyes red, grateful I've got tears 
To even let loose to fall to the cement 
50 percent dreaming, the other half.. is leading 
Thru motion, not hoping 
It happens thru action.. 
The passion dictates the pace 
Aint no relaxing here 
No fear, so serious, I'm trynna go there 
Code red, I'm on edge, to get my soul fed 
So rare, I zone yeah, like I don't care 
Tone clear when folks hear me when I'm on air 
Mo prepared, I'm focused, no joke & wit potency gotsta be becuz I believe
