V1:

Derek was a young boy

Only 20 years old

His mom died when givin him life

Now he's all alone

His dad left when Derek was still an unborn

He has no home he's all alone

Yo he feels scorned

Torned by what life has dealt him

Didn't know what would help him

Some days he'd cry

Other times he'd wanna die

Suicide filled his mind

Like half the time

But yo he tried to live the best he could

But Derek is livin in a rough neighborhood

He never had friends

He wished to have a brotherhood

Aiyo it would do him no good.

Hook:

He's all alone

He has no home

He's just a young boy

With little joy

He's just livin day by day

He says

"My heart aches" (2x)

V2:

Derek would do anything to be popular

Even if it meant joinin a mafia like group

Yo here's the scoop

He wanted to a gangster troop

So yo he began to shoot

All kinds of drugs into his veins

Ice and cocaine

Affected his brain

And his nervous system

He tries to play the victim

All this cuz he wanted to hang wit them

The wrong crowd

In a shady part of town

He wanted to be down

But all the kid did was unleash the hounds

Hook:

He's all alone

He has no home

He's just a young boy

With little joy

He's just livin day by day

He says

"My heart aches" (2x)

V3:

The police were after him

The dogs at his heel

For real

He felt like this was his last chapter when

He first got the cops attention

When he was dealin drugs

Aiyo lets not forget to mention

Hangin out with thugs

Derek never felt loved

Yo he suffered his downfall cuz the call

Was bugged

Vomit on the rug

Felt like his stomach was bein tugged

In different directions

Yo back to the present

Derek didn't have protection

From the k9 units

Or the officers

Derek wishes he never tried to be popular

So yo he never tried to out best them

Or even test them

He just accepted his fate

As they arrest him

Thinkin about all his transgressions

Made him tear up

But yo cheer up

Cuz Derek did his time

And paid his debt

He now has a job

No longer a slob

He lives life with no regrets

But yo even today

He still remembers what he used to say

Hook:

He's all alone

He has no home

He's just a young boy

With little joy

He's just livin day by day

He says

"My heart aches" (2x)
