[Hook]
I know one day, I won't have to wait in line
I know one day, I'mma get those keys to that new ride
I know one day I'll be fine
And I know one day I'll get mine
And I know one day...
Hell, it might be Monday


[Verse 1]
I remember thinking
"Man, I need a decent ride

Then I won't have to ask my momma for the keys to drive"
With my brother riding in an old Cutlass
Black and Mild lit, whole roof busted

Well who knows maybe one day we'll have a little more
We'll finally shop somewhere else besides the corner store
My little sister say she gotta have a pair of Dior's
But right now they'll probably stop us before we hit the door
My Uncle says: "that's how it is where we come from"
And if it weren't for bad luck, we wouldn't have none
Hard to tell the good days from the bad ones
If I could catch a shooting star then I would grab one
I'd grab one for real


[Hook]

[Verse 2]
I remember feeling trapped and no, I couldn't get out
And when they laid my momma off, no it just didn't amount
I still remember how she looked when she walked into the house

But still, she tried her best to show us what was Christmas about
And if we wanted hot water, we had to microwave it
And everyday the power'd cut off, but we'd tolerate it
The thoughts of all the beats I lost because I forgot to save 'em
I'm screaming at me in the mirror like: "I gotta make it!"
My teacher's trying to get through to me because of my behaviour
I said: "I've got big dreams, and I've gotta chase 'em"
I never cared a damn thing about a college major
I only had one need, that was a lot of paper
But see, I never had a thing but a lot of prayers
After school, open mic night, rockin' stages
It all started from a demo, to a limo
From a limo, to a Lambo

And all of this came up out of Decatur
Because one day...

[Hook]

[Bridge]
I used to dream about these days, and the things that I'd do
I had to get a new life, because the old just won't do
I used to dream in shades of grey, now the sky's shining blue
And everyday it feels like, there's no way I can lose

[Hook 2]
Because, I knew one day, I wouldn't have to wait in line
I knew one day, I would get those keys to that new ride
I knew one day I'd be fine
And I knew one day I'd get mine
And I knew one day, and not just Monday
