Elevate

  • Ay
    Elevate, elevate
    Only obligation is to tell it straight
    So much on my plate I gotta delegate
    Baka passed a drug test, we gotta celebrate
    I'm in bed awake, thinkin' how'd I make

    All this happen for myself and my family
    All this happen for myself and my family
    There's no way that this is real, man, it can't be
    (Yeah, yeah)

    If you need me, you can't call me
    I stay busy makin' money
    You know what is on my mind
    All I think about is hunnids
    I stay busy (bzz!) workin' on me
    I stay busy with my business, homie
    I already hit her when you left her lonely
    She is not the type that likes to take things slowly
    Slowly, my mouth is goin' off, I don't know patience
    I got a chance, then my niggas got it too like it's contagious
    I see the future when I get wavy (Wavy God!)
    But I couldn't picture bein' Champagne
    When I would buy that shit and save it for the right occasion
    I couldn't picture changes when I was with Ms. Craten
    That lady hates me
    Couldn't picture wifin' Braden
    When I was pumpin' gas on road trips to go from Cincinnati on to Dayton
    I couldn't gauge it
    I wanna thank God for workin' way harder than Satan
    He's playin' favorites, it feels amazin'

    (Yeah) elevate, elevate
    Only obligation is to tell it straight
    Me and all the guys found a better way
    This for life, bih, we can never separate
    I'm in bed awake, thinkin' how'd I make

    All this happen for myself and my family
    All this happen for myself and my family
    There's no way that this is real, man, it can't be

    Yeah, I can only tell you shit in pieces
    As it happens to me I begin to write the thesis
    Freddy got the Aria setup like it's a Freaknik
    Vegas like Marine Land, that big whale treatment
    Georgie got me up a hunnid thousand for the weekend
    I gotta move the safe beside the bed when I be sleepin'
    My mood is changin' this summer I'ma be tweakin' (tweakin', tweakin', tweakin')Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Gary Evan Fountaine, Jahron Braithwaite, Ryan Martinez, Shane Lidstrom
