Lyrics
Nobody knows Nobody knows the insides and out y'all

what I'm goin through Nobody knows what's behind the scenes
Nobody knows Nobody knows about the hardship and sorrow

what I feel inside Nobody knows about the dreams.. bout the dreams..

[Guru]

I'm catchin a flashback of the days when

my pockets were dry, I only had a few friends

Those same brothers now my family

We've been through it all, in this industry

Mad frustrated, ready to flip

because the company was playin me like some dumb kid

Video out and I'm still ridin the train

Workin and hustlin, no pain no gain

Now here comes the spotlight, still somethin's not right

I gotta pay my rent by five o'clock tonight

Livin on fifty cent noodles

but I'm playin the game, that the brothers know I'm true to

Can't let up, although the journey is rough

Focus on the goal like it's the Stanley Cup

I gotta play this thing for keeps

My only stress relief is the hip-hop beats

Chorus: Shara Nelson and Guru

[Shara Nelson] (Guru)

Nobody knows Nobody knows, the insides and out y'all

when I close the door Nobody knows what's behind the scenes

Nobody knows Nobody knows about the hardship and sorrow

They try to kill my dreams Nobody knows about the dreams.. bout the dreams..
[Guru]

Skippin the turnstyles, everyday lifestyle

Lookin at this world with mad anger cause it's wild

People thinkin that I'm blowin up

But they don't understand, the young man is growin up

Now who you think I should trust?

Better rely on self, no time for missin the bus

Fake people, phony characters

They begin to swarm, so I built up barriers

to block em out, but they still dwellin

Makes me wanna just start yellin

But I play it cool though, cause I'm no fool yo

See chumps'll always try to break down your flow

Chorus: Shara Nelson and Guru

[Shara Nelson] (Guru)

Nobody knows Nobody knows, the insides and out y'all

what I'm goin through Nobody knows what's behind the scenes

Nobody knows Nobody knows about the hardship and sorrow
what I feel inside Nobody knows about the dreams.. bout the dreams..

[Guru]

No time for misery, no time for empty wishin

'fridgerator's bare, killin roaches in the kitchen

Just spent my last on a 40

to sip away my troubles, now it's worse, cause I'm hungry

I check my man for advice

He lent me 20 dollars and we lounged and got nice

I told him nobody knows about the wack side

I feel like a slave gettin whipped on my backside

Chorus: Shara Nelson and Guru (repeat 2X)

[Shara Nelson] (Guru)

Nobody knows Nobody knows, the insides and out y'all

when I close the door Nobody knows what's behind the scenes

Nobody knows Nobody knows about the hardship and sorrow

They try to kill my dreams Nobody knows about the dreams.. bout the dreams..

Chorus: Shara Nelson and Guru (repeat 2X)

[Shara Nelson] (Guru)

Nobody knows Nobody knows, the insides and out y'all

what I'm goin through Nobody knows what's behind the scenes

Nobody knows Nobody knows about the hardship and sorrow

what I feel inside Nobody knows about the dreams.. bout the dreams
