Elbow Grease

by Legacy

Being toiling for years and got nothing to show
I been hiding inside because I just donít know

Donít get me wrong I know what I should
Iím afraid of the sun
Brightness, the shine, the spotlight
Afraid Iíll get clowned if my game ainít tight

Chained to the expected canít let my man down
Donít want to disappoint cant stand to see the frown

Do I live substandard because I am afraid to be me?
Keep working at nothing wasting elbow grease

There are dreams to be woven
And stories to be told
Destiny to be crowned 
And a new life to unfold

Shuffle a little
Smile a little
Each day I die a little
Slinging elbow grease
Buried in finery with my brow creased

Hearing whispers bout she had so much potential
The girl couldíve have been influential
She wasted her time trying to please
Never should have been toiling
Wasting elbow grease
