I used to be that person
that would stand on the corner selling drugs
to try to keep up with the Joneses.
I used to be that person
that would do anything to survive
in that jungle out there called the streets
I used to be that person
that was going to end up dead
cause I didn't know any better

I used to be but know l am
That person that's willing to make a change
That person that has finally opened up his eyes
and seen that now I really have something to live for
That now I have another way out
and not having to be that used to be person

I used to be a boy but now I’m a man
A man with goals and a man that plans to live
and not to ever become that used to be person again.
