1000 Nights

Album: No. 6 Collaborations Project (2019)
  • Oh, I been on for a thousand nights
    New York to London, different city every day, yeah
    Playin' on, playin' on, puttin' out fifty-thousand lights
    I've been gone so long, gettin' up and gettin' faded
    So I'm on, keepin' on, stayin' up for a thousand nights

    This the type of shit we used to dream of (yeah, yeah)
    Bad bitch look like Mona Lisa (Mona Lisa)
    Flippin' off a yacht in Ibiza (splash, water)
    Clear port, hasta la vista
    Do it all again when we touchdown, everything bust down
    Teacher said I would lose, I be like, "What now?"
    I started makin' moves, they showin' me love now
    Look like a lightbulb 'cause bitch I'm the plug now
    And now you know we poppin', we bubble like soda pop
    And I see it, I like it, I wake up, pull up, and go and cop it
    The millions get wired, them Benny hunnids still go in pocket
    I party with Ed Sheeran, my homies still hold the rocket
    'Cause I'm so hood, it don't make no sense
    Still remember the times I couldn't pay my rent
    Now, I walk in a stadium, tell 'em, "Play my shit"
    And they gon' sing like this

    Oh, I been on for a thousand nights
    New York to London, different city every day, yeah
    Playin' on, playin' on, puttin' out fifty-thousand lights
    I've been gone so long, gettin' up and gettin' faded
    So I'm on, keepin' on, stayin' up for a thousand nights

    Last night I played a show at a stadium in Atlanta
    Husbands and wives, daddies and daughters with the cameras
    I never thought it would get this big, but what does it matter?
    Everything is already part of a plan
    I remember, damn, me, and my man inside of this Sprinter van
    Two hundred a night, end of 2010
    Stayin' up in every city's Holiday Inn
    If it wasn't there, then I was at the couch of a friend's
    Weatherspoon's was an easy option to get a cheaper lunch and
    Two-pound pint, the waitress maybe leave her number
    On to the next town, but now it's to the next continent (woo!)
    And I don't think it's gonna be stoppin' anytime soon
    Birds eye view, pay my dues for a two-mile queue
    Don't need to read reviews if you can't do the things I do
    Oh, let me invite you to my world

    Oh, I been on for a thousand nights
    New York to London, different city every day, yeah
    Playin' on, playin' on, puttin' out fifty-thousand lights
    I've been gone so long, gettin' up and gettin' faded (gettin' faded)
    So I'm on, keepin' on, stayin' up for a thousand nights

    Hm, I'm so faded, yeah
    I don't even know how much I made last year
    I'm so used to bein' on some player shit
    Cheated on my girlfriend with a fiendish bitch
    Hoodie on pull up, just like the Reaper, yeah
    I do this on the regular, make it seem often
    St. Laurent, Gucci sweater, the red and green marklet
    Me and Meek and Ed Sheeran just like the Beatles, yeah
    From her head to her toe you know she be fría, yeah
    Everyday I be seein' her and Selena, yeah
    She wanna come closer, but I don't see us there
    I'm not a regular person, I've been low-key all year
    From New York out to London, she was, she was with me all the time
    And I've been on the road, so I know she couldn't call my line
    And now she got her ass and titties done for a thousand likes, mm

    Oh, I been on for a thousand nights
    New York to London, different city every day, yeah
    Playin' on, playin' on, puttin' out fifty-thousand lights
    Oh, I've been gone so long, gettin' up and gettin' faded
    So I'm on, keepin' on, stayin' up for a thousand nights Writer/s: Fred Gibson, Edward Christopher Sheeran, Artist Julius Dubose, Jahaan Akil Sweet, Matthew Jehu Samuels, Robert Rihmeek Williams
