  • Question is, will I ever leave you?
    The answer is no, no, no-no-no, no, no
    No, no-no-no, no, no
    No, no, no, no
    Question is, will I ever leave you?
    The answer is no, no, no-no-no, no, no
    No, no-no-no, no, no
    No, no, no, no

    Yeah, you feel the pressure, man, I know the pressure
    And my wifey is a spice like I'm David Beckham
    A lot of pent up aggression comin' out of my section
    OVO on me while y'all niggas was playin' dress-up
    And I know who gon' take the fall with me
    They right here on call with me, they all with me
    You could throw curve balls but I got the glove fitted
    They've been sayin' it's love, but it isn't love, is it?
    Toast to the days when they wasn't out to get me
    I worked at Jaydees Connections whenever Jason let me
    Ceesay's, I was buyin' fitteds everyday
    Kiddie's Caribana, tryin' not to catch a stray
    I dropped out right before I graduate
    Six credits left, my mama had her saddest day
    "It's only up from here, I promise, you just gotta wait"
    And she took my word for it, that's all I had to say
    Lately I just feel so out of character
    The paranoia can start to turn into arrogance
    Thoughts too deep to go work 'em out with a therapist
    I get a blank page when I try to draw a comparison
    I'm gettin' straight to the point with it
    Need y'all to know that I never needed none of y'all niggas
    Fuck bein' all buddy buddy with the opposition
    It's like the front of the plane, nigga, it's all business
    But I haven't flown with y'all boys in a minute

    Look, they'd rather run up on me than towards their goals
    My niggas still hit the club when it's twenty below
    Who you think runnin' this show?
    You saw it in me at twenty years old
    The lingo start to sound like we talkin' in code
    I got a pure soul, I don't do the hate
    You don't worry 'bout fittin' in when you custom made
    Me and Niko used to plot on how to make a change
    Now me and Kobe doin' shots the night before the game
    Still drop 40 with liquor in my system
    Numbers goin' unlisted just to create some distance
    I might see you on and off but I'll never switch ya
    Niggas quick to double cross like both of us Christian
    Lamborghini got me feelin' like I'm Christian Bale
    And I never bend my morals for the ticket sales
    Tippin' scales, bars heavy like triple XL
    I never tag no one in, I'd rather get you myself
    Runnin' through the 6, thumbin' through the contracts
    I'm possessed, you can see it under the contacts
    They think I had the silver spoon but they'll get it soon
    I still got somethin' left to prove since you left me room
    Paint a plan for the family debt, we in the minus
    And like it's goin' in a trunk, I put it all behind us
    Where you tryna go? I got it, I'll take us wherever
    I'm a staple in the game, all my papers together
    And my life is on display like Truman
    They wanna pree the movements, gotta start to make 'em sooner
    My exes made some of my favorite music
    I dated women from my favorite movies
    Karma's such a thing of beauty
    I'd share more of my story but you wouldn't believe it
    It's far-fetched like I threw that shit a hundred meters
    I keep it a hundred like I'm running a fever
    I might take a breather but I won't ever leave you
    If I was you, I wouldn't like me either Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Noah James Shebib, Matthew Jehu Samuels, Maneesh Bidaye, Mervyn Winans
