"If Only For One Night"

[Hook: Kenny]
If only for one night, he
Could escape his life, he
Gladly take that flight, he
Finally get a night's sleep, see
If only for one night, he
Could escape his life, he
Gladly take that flight, he
Finally get a night's sleep
If only for one night he could leave
If only for one night...

[Verse: Kenny]
He heard his momma cry last Tuesday
Heard a victim momma cry last Monday
It's like any day in the hood could be your doomsday
So he vowed that he'd make it out one day
Old man up the block said, "Son, pray"
Would go to church, but it was shot up last Sunday
In his hood where he lived, it was not a game
Even though there was plenty of gunplay
Young age, barely legal, trapped in a maze, trynna parry evil
Can't sleep, he gets awakened to a sound of a bird
Not talking about a rooster, but a Desert Eagle
If only for one night, he could rest in peace
Without hearing that someone from his block 'Rest In Peace'
Or waking up house empty because of an effing thief
So much stress, it seems it's not even best to sleep
He may not awake, he might have a wake
Want a piece of the pie but can't have a taste
Life working him hard, no lunch, can't have a break
Feelin' outta place, even in his place
The grounds that he walk on are very shaky
And the Earth doesn't even really need to quake
He seen a homicide last Thursday
A ho fucked in the alley last Hump Day
A normal Friday, for him would be your worst day
So he vowed that he'd make it out someday
He tries, and tries, and tries to have some faith
But it's like he running the wrong way down the one way
At night, with blinding headlights in his eyes
Every car he's trynna dodge but it seems won't none break
Cause his life is just as unsafe, hombre
No umbrella, but so much rain
No sunny days, it's like the Sun's on break
He 'bout to go off like his lights that's unpaid
All he hear is helicopters, sirens of hella coppers
The screams of the future patients of several doctors
Cries of all the babies being neglected
All because the mother didn't like to have sex protected
And the yelling of little rebellious hellion fellas who felons
Because they fell in with the wrong crowd
Now they're falling and failing all because they hailing from somewhere hellish
Life is hell and a bitch, he call her Helen
He be telling Helen, he don't wanna stress
Like a cop who won't cuff you, he won't arrest
The other night he tried to close his eyes
But as usual, his pops stumbled in a drunken mess
Reeking of Hennessy, speaking obscenities
Showing his true evil identity, yelling at his moms
He can hear the screaming off in his sleep
So he reached for the semi piece
Cause he's tired of him beating her seemingly endlessly
Feeling like, "With this piece, I'll finally get some peace"
For life he's given me, fam don't play the enemy
So it's gonna be the end of him or it's the end of me
Cause all this rage and anger that live in me, he finna see
Then I'm a ask God to deliver me, give a nigga some sympathy
Don't let the judge sentence me or cops get a grip on me
The hood's already imprisoned me
Somewhere secluded, I flee for serenity
Hoping that one day, mom would have forgiven me
And nobody would remember me
But hopefully I get some sleep for just at least...

One night, one night, ohh ohhh, to you
(Hopefully I get some sleep for just at least)
One night, one night, ohh ohhh, to you
