Year One

by Akira The Don



hip hip hooray
one year to the day
since i packed my bags and moved to la
i looked to the stars and ask for a sign
now i look out the window and see the hollywood sign
and i walk on stars when i step outside
down the boulevard through neon lights
there’s spider-man, there’s sponge bob, theres superman
cracked out staggering outside the gift shop
head rings loud with the tick tock
time is my enemy
i gotta level up so hard
for my family still waiting to follow
this time last year I was running on the beach each night
pushing my son up the hills each morning
got in the best shape of my life
practicing my performing

cos i been pushing so so hard
and i been grinding so so long
all i want is to be my best
and to sing my songs and the world sing along
now california's calling
hand outreached she asked me to dance
and I take it
cos this could be my last chance

ran with the jellyfish one last time
kissed goodbye to the sunrise
crossed a ocean
hit that strip like meteor
ATD Conquistodor
kick in the door waving the four four
took to the life like i been here before
ooh baby i like it raw

mixed opportunity with preparation
plus perspiration
worked it out didnt need no presentation
a little patience
just a while longer we’ll be celebrating
i spoke to my nan on the phone her birthday
she said guess I’ll never see you again
I’m like no way
I coming back on a horse for you all

i been been missing my dad
i been mission my mum
i been missing my girl i been missing my son
i was with him each day first half of his life
only with him two months last year of his lif
but i see him on skype
and I see says I miss you daddy
i say i miss you buddy
I missed so much
making our dreams come true
did it for your mum
did it for you
so you could be proud of your old man
and know that you could be whatever you want
fortune favours the brave
now I drop nukes in the rave
do not behave
smash every stage i invade
every song a grenade

the best DJ in all of LA
