lyrics

Remember back when I used to try too hard
My bars were based off of who the tube said was superstars
Guys that glamorized wars
In spite of my flaws,
Evil demons leaked in my cerebral
Acting lethal like them chicos
Nah bruh
I need to sit back and pause
Why hold on to my past man let go of these thoughts
But if I could be honest
Never knew who I was
Except a lost kid
That was easily influenced
And fuck that
No need for negative shit
Don't be trippin like a politician
Off of my opinions
Ain't like we can't be cool
Just know I see things different
I'd call you lames out
But I ain't with it to snitch
Now they comin' at me
Sayin "Damn you changed"
Yeah I did bitch, I was tired of being fake
For friends who took advantage of
Hoes who took for granted love
If kindness is weakness
Then my gains is not givin' a fuck

You ain't the same since I met you baby
Noooo
Even though you changed
I can't forget that you'll always be
The pleasure to my pain
Seems like the feeling's been gone lately
Oh yeahhh
Still you're the only one who drives me crazy
Got me sayin' oh babe

Tossed out my old mixtapes and CD's
Yeah shit was hot but it was not the real me
I wanna live my life unlike those who judge
But who the fuck I'm kidding?
I'm guilty as much
I know I'm not the only one
Sam Smith shit but
I'm out your jurisdiction
I meditate then levitate
By burning a blunt yup
It's part of my perscription
Alleviate my stresses
Let my mind go reflective
It's pathetic to admit it
But there's shit I did regrettin
Those decisions made then
Made me in the present
Forgive but won't forget
Don't let it happen twice, domestic
I put so many people first when I was only second
I started acting selfish and it raised a lot of questions
This is my vision
Can't see it through them Guccis
You could say I'm different
But you never really knew me

You ain't the same since I met you baby
Noooo
Even though you changed
I can't forget that you'll always be
The pleasure to my pain
Seems like the feeling's been gone lately
Oh yeahhh
Still you're the only one who drives me crazy
Got me sayin' oh babe

Fuck the rat race called American Dream
A marathon mindset, I'm too tired to run it
Chasin' materials we think will make us happy
As soon as we get it, we figured out it doesn't
So all we did was waste time trying to impress the public
On our social media, killin' for the likes and lovin
And if you blind to it, you won't escape the matrix
My dreams are alive cuz I'm finally awake bitch

You ain't the same since I met you baby
Noooo
Even though you changed
I can't forget that you'll always be
The pleasure to my pain
Seems like the feeling's been gone lately
Oh yeahhh
Still you're the only one who drives me crazy
Got me sayin' oh babe

Save the music
We gotta save the music y'all
Cuz one day, music's gonna save us all
I'm tryna save it, I tryna save the music y'all
Cuz one day, music's gonna save us all
