    Lately I've been hard to reach
    I've been too long on my own
    Everyone has a private world
    Where they can be alone
    Are you calling me, are you trying to get through
    Are you reaching out for me, and I'm reaching out for you

    I'm just so fu-ckin' depressed
    I just can seem to get out this slump
    If I could just get over this hump
    But I need something to pull me out this dump
    I took my bruises, took my lumps
    Fell down and I got right back up
    But I need that spark to get psyched back up
    And the right thing for me to pick that mic back up
    I don't know how I pry away
    And I ended up in this position I'm in
    I starting to feel distant again
    So I decided just to beat this pain
    Up and tried to make an attempt to vent
    But I just can't admit
    Or come to grips, with the fact that
    I may be done with rap
    I need a new outlet
    I know some shits so hard to swallow
    And I just can't sit back and wallow
    In my own sorrow
    But I know one fact
    I'll be one tough act to follow
    One tough act to follow
    Copy
    One tough act to follow
    Here today, gone tomorrow
    But you have to walk a thousand miles

    Chorus
    Walk my shoes, just to see
    What it's like, to be me
    All be you, let's trade shoes
    Just to see what I'd be like to
    Feel your pain, you feel mine
    Go inside each other's mind
    Just to see what we find
    Looking shit through each other's eyes

    But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful OoOo
    They can all get fu-cked. Just stay true to you sOoOoo
    Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful OoOo
    They can all get fu-cked. Just stay true to you

    I think I'm starting to lose my sense of humor
    Everything is so tense and gloom
    I almost feel like I gotta check the temperature in the room
    Just as soon as I walk in
    It's like all eyes on me
    So I try to avoid any eye contact
    Cause if I do that then it opens a door to conversation
    Like I want that...
    I'm not looking for extra attention
    I just want to be just like you
    Blend in with the rest of the room
    Maybe just point me to the closest restroom
    I don't need fu-cking man servin'
    Tryin to follow me around, and wipe my ass
    Laugh at every single joke I crack
    And half of them ain't even funny like that
    Ahh Marshall, you're so funny man, you should be a comedian, god damn
    Unfortunately I am, but I just hide behind the tears of a clown
    So why don't you all sit down
    Listen to the tale I'm about to tell
    Hell, we don't have to trade our shoes
    And you don't have to walk no thousand miles

    Chorus
    Walk my shoes, just to see
    What it's like, to be me
    All be you, let's trade shoes
    Just to see what I'd be like to
    Feel your pain, you feel mine
    Go inside each other's mind
    Just to see what we find
    Looking shit through each other's eyes

    But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful OoOo
    They can all get fu-cked. Just stay true to you sOoOoo
    Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful OoOo
    They can all get fu-cked. Just stay true to you sOoOoo

    Nobody asked for life to deal us
    With these bullshit hands with doubt
    We have to take these cards ourselves
    And flip them, don't expect no help
    Now I could have either just
    Sat on my ass and pissed and moaned
    But take this situation in which I'm placed in
    And get up and get my own
    I was never the type of kid
    To wait but I know to unpack his bags
    Never sat on the porch and hoped and prayed
    For a dad to show up who never did
    I just wanted to fit in
    Every single place
    Every school I went
    I dreamed of being that cool kid
    Even if it meant acting stupid
    Aunt Edna always told me
    Keep making that face till it gets stuck like that
    Meanwhile I'm just standing there
    Holding my tongue up trying to talk like this
    Till I stuck my tungue on the frozen stop sign poll at 8 years old
    I learned my lesson and cause I wasn't tryin to impress my friends no more
    But I already told you my whole life story
    Not just based on my description
    Cause where you see it from where you're sitting
    Is probably 110% different
    I guess we would have to walk a mile
    In each other's shoes, at least
    What size you where?
    I wear tens
    Let's see if you can fit your feet

    Chorus
    Walk my shoes, just to see
    What it's like, to be me
    All be you, let's trade shoes
    Just to see what I'd be like to
    Feel your pain, you feel mine
    Go inside each other's mind
    Just to see what we find
    Looking shit through each other's eyes

    But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful OoOo
    They can all get fu-cked. Just stay true to you sOoOoo
    Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful OoOo
    They can all get fu-cked. Just stay true to you sOoOoo

    Lately I've been hard to reach
    I've been too long on my own
    Everyone has a private world
    Where they can be alone... sOoOoo
    Are you calling me, are you trying to get through OoOo
    Are you reaching out for me, and I'm reaching out for you sOoOoo Oo Oo

    Yea... To my babies. Stay strong. Daddy will be soon
    And to the rest of the world, god gave you the shoes
    That fit you, so put em on and wear em
    And be yourself man, be proud of who you are
    Even if it sounds corny,
    Don't ever let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful
