- Lyrics -

(Intro)
Woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah
Now I'm taking the lead

(Verse #1)
Let's start at the beginning, when this was all a dream
Before the tarts and the women
Before you farts had opinions
Before I had a heart for the millions

A kid in his room, didn't fit in
So he tried to fit in the bars when he was spitting
But he didn't fit in there, he had too much to say
Had to learn about flow, delivery, vocal pace

(Bridge #1)
Didn't come easy, it was an uphill struggle
Least he weren't on the streets, getting into trouble
Some of you may wanna burst his bubble
But bubbles can't be burst when they're floating above all

(Chorus)
We all got a dream that we wanna pursue
Just something that we have to do
You wouldn't understand unless it happened to you
So let me tell you how it happened to me

I grew up knowing what I wanted to be
And then my daddy told me take the lead
Then my daddy told me take the lead
Now I'm taking the lead

Woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah
Now I'm taking the lead

(Verse #2)
I've never been a follower, until Twitter
Many people came and gone and they're still bitter
But when you're heading for the top, you can't chill at the bottom
You gotta keep moving or one day you'll regret stopping

I was thirteen, writing verses to burst on the scene
There was no-one as thirsty as me
Had mates that rapped too, they left for drugs
Shame, they should'a kept it up

(Bridge #2)
Didn't come easy, it was an uphill struggle
Didn't always have the right pieces to the puzzle
Some of you tried to burst my bubble
But bubbles can't be burst when they're floating above all

(Chorus)
We all got a dream that we wanna pursue
Just something that we have to do
You wouldn't understand unless it happened to you
So let me tell you how it happened to me

I grew up knowing what I wanted to be
And then my daddy told me take the lead
Then my daddy told me take the lead
Now I'm taking the lead

Woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah
Now I'm taking the lead

(Bridge x2)
I keep on, I keep on moving
Won't rest until my point is proven
Plus somehow I keep improving
So I ain't got no intention of losing

(Chorus)
We all got a dream that we wanna pursue
Just something that we have to do
You wouldn't understand unless it happened to you
So let me tell you how it happened to me

I grew up knowing what I wanted to be
And then my daddy told me take the lead
Then my daddy told me take the lead
Now I'm taking the lead

Woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah
Now I'm taking the lead
