Here Are the Lyrics to YoungBoy Never Broke Again's 'Lonely Child'

On "Lonely Child," YoungBoy Never Broke Again's vulnerable bars speak to how fame has not only elevated him onto a pedestal, but also isolated him there, stripping him of his human status and away from his loved ones whom he’s lost along the way.

The 20-year-old rapper continues to mourn his grandmother who raised him (“I pray that grandmom keep me strong”) and murdered best friend Lil Dave, leaving YoungBoy’s “mind in a rage, I’m way too young to feel this pain.”

Check out the somber lyrics below.

Pipe that sh-- up, TNT
I just wanna be loved
D-mac on the f---in' track
Don't nobody understand me though
Tahj Money
The way I came in the game
The image that I had put out
They wouldn't expect me to have feelings
Know it probably don't seem like it
That's why they talk about me like I ain't human, but we all is
But I'm still being me
I'm still in the streets and I'm still thuggin' until them n---as put me under, yeah
That's how we livin' and that's how we going out, you hear me? Open your mouth

I say, mama, I'm so sorry
I got ice burned where my heart at
On the road where I had it hard at
How I'm chosen? I'm so heartless, so, so heartless
I ain't know my age, he was 16, they killed Lil Dave
Mind in a rage, I'm way too young to feel this pain
I ain't know how to fade, but I dove in 'cause I'm a man
I love that girl to death, as we get old, our feelings change
I pay for therapy because my thoughts ahead of me
They keep on draggin' me, I play for keeps, they scared of me
I cannot barely, can barely sleep or even breathe
I cannot hold on without you on side of me
I never knew this fame would take the ones I love from 'way from me
I wanna see Kacey bad, but I can't seem to call Nene
Go in with no pen and pad, I got this shit right on my sleeve
Right now my candle burning wax, I'm feelin' like it's burnin' me

I'm just a lonely child
Who wants someone to help him out, oh, oh, ah, ah
Take this pain away, this pain away
Because my head been runnin' wild, wild

I fell in love with Kaylyn, without even knowin' this bi--- done snaked me
I'm missin' Yaya daily, the one who don't make me feel basic
Happiness I'm chasin', while killers behind me tryna blank me
You don't know what I'm feelin'
Or what I'm thinkin' and you can't change me
I miss my f---in' daddy, I've been callin' Montana my father
Times been gettin' harder
I came from nothing, now bitch, I'm royal
I call Monique my mama, but Lord knows I need Sheronda
I don't need no commas, I'm feeling like I'm going under
My paw-paw getting old, and once he gone, I'm on my own
Right now I'm all alone, I pray that grandmom keep me strong
Can't even leave my home, my bracelet beeping plus I'm down
I just wan' be gone, my son straight, my money long
Tell me what you feelin', I hope that I can help you out
My youngins in that North, I pray that y'all gon' make it out
These bi---es comin' 'round, and they don't even like my songs
I'll burn up the town, before them n---as bust my dome
I wish that I can hear Dump say, "What up, lil brother," one more time
We killing sh-- and plus we dying
I'm gon' go off behind my brother, f--- this charge, I slang that iron
Before he go and I don't ride

I'm just a lonely child
Who wants someone to help him out, oh, oh, ah, ah
Take this pain away, this pain away
Because my head been runnin' wild, wild
I'm just a lonely child
Who need someone to help him out, oh, oh, ah, ah
Take this pain away, my pain away
Because my thoughts been runnin' wild

Oh, oh Lord
I need some help because my life been real hard
The way I approached the game, it seem that I'm hard
But I got feelings too just like a lil' boy, oh Lord
I'm a grandmom baby
