I can see it , its funny man 'cause its like it's not going nowhere
And you gunna see where ever theres struggle
(Once in a while I choose to look at you)
I see my pain in your eyes man so I know your feelin me
(See the twinkle in your eyes)
It's that twinkle man, that sign of struggle, Ive seen it in me

'Cause everyday I cant help but see it, the people ain't satisfied
And you're hatin your nine to five and everybody wanna live another life
But ain't no length you'd go or mountain you'd climb
Not to better your day, but that will do is leave room for people to say

I guess your living better now, sharing a lil of that cheddar now
'Cause I remember days back when a
Brotha was hustling and robbing too
I don't tossed the biretta now, on a whole 'nother level now
But still I cant enjoy my fame
Unless my people doing the same and getting money too

(Once in a while I choose to look at you)
Oh, once in a while
(See the twinkle in your eyes)
I can see that you dont ever want to struggle no more

(Once in a while I choose to look at you)
Ooh, yeah
(See the twinkle in your eye)
And I can see that you dont ever want to cry no more

'Cause every time you ask me Im grinding
It shouldnt have to be that way
You shouldnt have to pay my way
I shouldnt have to want for a brighter day

Got a let a little problem on the way
Bounty hunters checking state to state
Child support lady on your case
Not to mention tickets you ain't ever paid

Oh, what must I do, this what you be asking
God please hold it down for me, dont let Satan get a hold of me
I'm trying to tell you, it done happened to me too
But it happened a lot worse to my brother
Muhammad I thank God he recovered, yeah

(Once in a while I choose to look at you)
Once in a while I choose
(See the twinkle in your eyes)
And I can see that you dont ever want to struggle no more

(Once in a while I choose look at you)
Look in your eyes, ooh yeah
(See the twinkle in your eye)
And I can see that you dont ever want to cry no more
(Once in a while I choose to look at you)

'Cause I see your pain now, ooh yeah
'Cause I see your pain now, ooh yeah
I can feel you scream now, I can feel you screaming
And I can see you crying and inside your dying, inside your dying
No longer the same now, 'cause you got to
But you got to maintain now, 'cause you got to maintain

(Once in a while I choose to look at you to see the twinkle in your eyes)
Twinkle in you, I can see that you dont ever want to struggle no more
(Once in a while I choose to look at you to see the twinkle in your eyes)
And I can see that you dont ever want to cry no more

(Once in a while I choose to look at you to see the twinkle in your eyes)
And I can see that you dont ever want to cry no more
(Once in a while I choose to look at you to see the twinkle in your eyes)
And I can see that you dont ever want to cry no more
