I wake up everyday in my dorm
Alone, 3000 miles away from home
In the east coast freezing like no other
Man, this isn’t close California’s weather!
But I get up to do my daily routine, no complaints, no sighs of grief
I’m here on a baseball scholarship, trying to succeed.
With 5 classes and practice, I have no extra time to breathe
Many friends and family didnt agree with my decision
But I know what I was doing and how I was going to be living
I came here for the degree
To bring back home where not many achieved
Where they live pissed of in ignorance not to see
That every day is a blessing and all they need is the master key.
I want to better my hometown, to make it the happiest city around.
I’m here to further my career,
As a ball player that never gave up on his dream
Im just here trying to make it to the League
And I’ll be playing until someone tells me to leave,
Thats for all those people who never believed in me.
