02. The Comeback Kid

Now Is Not Forever
by B.Reith



 

Kinda hard when they still can't say your name right
Took some time away from the game
Came back same thing though times have changed
I'm no longer that dude from that 70's show
Now I'm the guy who's video is in American Eagle
I stay fly like seagulls got hair like the Beatles
Spit truth for the people just call this a sequal

We get knocked down but we get right back up
Keep on comin back we k-k-keep on comin back for more
There is a fire that burns deep inside us we're the
Comeback kids kids we're the comeback kids

Round 2, they're askin' what's new
How you gonna comeback B what you gonna do?
Took a couple shots to the face from some critics
Can't imagine what they gonna say when they hear this
I'm done tryin' to fit in, thought about quittin'
Can't stop now we can't afford to give in
Learned my lesson through facin' opposition
If life doesn't hurt then we're not really livin'
So we take punch after punch like
Cassius Clay or Sugar Ray you see
This hard knock life might make my heart break
But you ain't gonna make no quitter out of me
Keep fightin' til' the war is won
Comeback kids lion heart champion let's go

I'm back, i gotta manager now
He's 6'4 black and his name is Cal
If you got a problem you he'll solve it
I got a style they still don't know what to call it
I've been on the grind since L.J. was a Hornet
Way before the days of Chris Paul in New Orleans
Back in the days of M. Jackson and Jordan
I was on that 8-track reel to reel recordin'
And I still gotta pay to get on
Paid my dues yet I still can't pay my loans
Couldn't find a hot beat so I made my own
Couldn't find a hot street so we paved a road
Hey Mr. DJ keep playin my song
While you're at it could you please stop sayin' my name wrong
Keep fightin' to the break-break of dawn
Comeback kids never quit always stay strong

(Brian Reith copyright 2009)

Behind the Song:
"I originally started writing The Comeback Kid as a follow up to Go On. I thought it would be funny to rap about making a comeback when barely anybody knows who I am. But as the song progressed it became more about facing adversity, learning how to take life's punches, and getting up again and again each time we fall. It's definitely the most hype and energetic song I've ever written or recorded. True perseverance and character come through facing pain, heartbreak and failure. I hope this song can be an anthem that others may sing along with and it can encourage them to keep fighting." - B.Reith
