  • Only holdin' up I do is my end of the bargain
    Only beggin' that I do is me beggin' your pardon
    Only tryin' that I do is me tryin' the hardest
    Only problems I do are math problems with profit
    Only lyin' I do is lyin' out in the tropics
    Only cryin' I do is cryin' from laughin' 'bout it
    Only lackin' I can do is my lack of responses
    Only rest that I do is "Where the rest of my commas?"
    Still I rise, Maya Angelou vibes
    When life comin' at you from all angles and sides
    And they don't wanna see that you smilin' from inside
    It really boils down to how you plan to survive
    Love certain ones but never get attached to 'em
    Give 'em nice things, but what's that to 'em?
    Especially when another girl I flew in is flickin' up in my bathroom
    And they recognize the bathroom
    All hell starts to break loose in my texts
    I only tell lies to who I gotta protect
    I would rather have you remember me how we met
    I would rather lose my leg than lose their respect
    But that'll never happen the way I'm watchin' my step
    That ain't what I'm 'bout
    I'm in control of my destiny, never in doubt
    If I can't make it with you, I'll make it without
    They say take the good with the bad, I'll take it without
    Houston women I wine-and-dine and take to the house
    My moral compass is janky, it breaks in the south

    Is there more to life than digits and bankin' accounts?
    Is there more to life than sayin' I figured it out?
    Is there more? Yeah

    Sweeter the berry, the blacker the juice
    The boy is back in the booth, ready to tap into truth
    Too many lyrics 'bout houses and loot
    Too many Walt Disney characters, mouses and goofs
    I mean you know I love a challenge, but challenged by who?
    I'll let you bring a thousand recruits
    My peers are a talented group
    But even if you take all their statistics and carry the two
    Even if you rounded up the numbers and rounded the troops
    There's still nothin' they could really do
    It's too bad reality checks don't cover the balances due
    Whenever it's time to recoup
    Yeah, soon as this album drop I'm out of the deal
    In the house playin' D'Angelo, "How Does It Feel?"
    I got a fear of havin' things on my mind when I die
    What you got, time on your hands or time on your side?
    Is there any sense in doin' these songs when I'm high?
    Is there more to life than goin' on trips to Dubai?
    Yachts on 4th of July, G5 soarin' the skies
    Is there more to life than all of these corporate ties
    And all of these fortunate times
    And all of these asses that never come in proportionate size?
    Am I missin' somethin' that's more important to find?
    Like healin' my soul, like family time

    Is there more to life than just when I'm feelin' alive?
    Is there more?

    Passion, instant
    Sweat beads, feel me (feel me)
    Cupid's shot me
    My heartbeat's racing (my heartbeat's racing)
    Tempt me, drive me (tempt me)
    It feels so exciting
    Thought of highly (highly)
    It's yours entirely
    I'll be, I'll be more than a lover
    More than a woman
    More than a lover for you Writer/s: Aubrey Graham, Joseph Lane, Jr., Naomi Saalfield, Stephen Garrett, Timothy Mosley
