lyrics

Sometimes To Get Ahead - KenK

I knew a rich man, didn't have a dime
But he had his freedom, and he had his piece of mind
And I know that rich man never asked for more
Just his intuition, and a reason to be living for

Sometimes to get ahead, you gotta go back where you started
Try and find the time to rearrange what you disregarded
Sometimes to get ahead, you gotta go back where you started
You gotta crawl before you walk, you gotta come out open hearted yeah

I knew a genius, never finished school
He built his house of wisdom, using life as his only tool
Once I felt his brilliance, it never went away
I still recall the moment, as if it happened only yesterday

Sometimes to get ahead, you gotta go back where you started
Try and find the time to rearrange what you disregarded
Sometimes to get ahead, you gotta go back where you started
You gotta crawl before you walk, you gotta come out open hearted yeah

Theres so many thoughts that I can ponder
Theres so many sides that I can see
There's so many places I could wander
And they all are inside of me, of me

I met a stranger, he let me wear his shoes
My life was going nowhere, I figured what did I have to lose?
As I became that stranger, I realized what I'd done
What you see inside you, is exactly what you will become

Sometimes to get ahead, you gotta go back where you started
Try and find the time to rearrange what you disregarded
Sometimes to get ahead, you gotta go back where you started
You gotta crawl before you walk, you gotta come out open hearted yeah
