  • Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    So you know
    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be okay
    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    So you know
    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be okay

    I can spare a rib to get my baby back
    I just wanna fall 'sleep with my baby, yeah
    So I don't wake up, wonder' where my baby at
    I wonder if we'd make it back
    I wonder, can I pay her back?
    Please
    65th and Ingleside
    Way before jamie got his jingles right
    I was sleeping with you every single night
    But I was still tryna act single right
    65th and Ingleside
    I was stacking chips like bingo night
    I didn't have to pay for a single light
    So I'ma make sure everything go right

    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    So you know
    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be okay

    Your sister owned the house we lived in
    On the east side that you rented
    Little two flat, inexpensive
    I didn't have a glove to pitch in
    I didn't have a pot to piss in
    Not to mention in Dro city
    Not a lot of jobs with pensions
    All my raps was 'bout suspension
    Then one day Donald took me on tour
    Young broke Chano ain't broke no more
    Thought you wouldn't want me come and knock on your doorstep
    But I still haven't given you what's yours yet
    65th and Ingleside
    Moved downtown for a single life
    None of my stars ever twinkled bright
    'Til God decide to come bring you by

    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    So you know
    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be okay

    Where's the return on investment?
    My first A&R
    That shit was played unless you were here playing the card
    We hit the Shell station, I tell you, "stay in the car"
    Back in the spot, don't put it in park
    Leave that bitch runnin' in case I come runnin'
    And skrrt, skrrt, skrrt, skrrt, skrrt, skrrt, grab the gold SCAR
    There it get late 'fore it's dark
    Kensli couldn't play in the park
    Now she could play in the stars
    High rise, eye to eye with firework
    So high your ears fire, they might've burst
    Every time they buy a verse, I buy a purse
    But you can't buy back time, that's just not how it works
    Three jobs, you afforded the crib
    Fuck child support, you supported the kid
    A full rack a month, nothing short of my rib
    So you first up, go and order a dib
    My big homie told me, "Nigga, growth and development
    Go and settle down, don't settle for settlement
    She got you closer to God than you two ever been
    She moved over from Evanston, you moved over from Eggleston"
    First lady you knew you came there
    Got shit sunny now you can't share
    New dad step in you can't stare
    You know the power in a woman that could lead you in prayer
    On 65th and Ingleside
    Feel like you can remember every single lie
    Truth is, I just really need your finger size
    So I can make sure they make the ring so tight

    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay
    So you know
    Made a way, out of no way
    Swear I know everything's gonna be okay Writer/s: Chancelor Jonathan Bennett
