  • We do not exist in
    Any other instant
    Here in this dimension
    You and I are meant to be
    I have waited lifetimes to find you
    Now that you're here
    I can remind you
    Of the things you've been dreamin'
    Times two
    I promise you
    If you just give me 24
    Man, all I need is 24 hours
    I promise you'll want plenty more
    You'll probably be with it forever
    So how does it sound
    Us on the ground
    Giving you my love?
    There's no place quite like here
    There's no better time than now
    You gotta stay ready
    There's no place quite like here
    There's no better time than now
    That's why I stay ready

    Tell me find your spot with the warning that I might slip
    And when you climb on top that's the ultimate road trip
    Ride on my like your Pac got me thinkin' it's 96'
    I can rap on some nineties shit, wrap your leggings around my hip
    I'm so hip to it tourists want to come speculate
    But if I stay monogamous promise this kiss will always taste like candy
    And yea, it's obvious momma now probably can't stand me
    I'm sure they're tired of this look that you have when you're antsy
    We gon' fuck around (Mm) we gon' fuck around
    And triple through triplets of babies right now
    And that might break the record and no, that don't mean you're fertile
    That means we're fucking reckless, plus we don't use protection
    I find myself reading old text messages when I'm bored
    We find ourselves sexting 'til that connection is restored
    I know that sounds immature, but if we never grow up
    Then I wish you good luck on the seas that's inside this wall

    Come to me
    Come, come to me
    Look at what you've done to me
    You put a gun to me
    Then you brought the sun to me

    Shine like blood diamonds
    Learning to have patience
    Only cause you are timeless
    The universe energy doesn't lie
    And this chemistry is infinity at a million
    Times
    I wrote a million rhymes to scrabble your
    Star power
    Now the 24 bars, you get 24 hours

    There's no place quite like here
    There's no better time than now
    You gotta stay ready
    There's no place quite like here
    There's no better time than now
    That's why I stay ready

    All that I know is right now
    Nothing's for sure but, right now
    Gotta get yours like, right now

    All that I know is right now
    Nothing's for sure but, right now
    Gotta get yours like, right now

    I been through some shit man
    But I be on my shit man
    I decided
    That what you give
    Is what you're given
    So I been tryna do it right
    I been doin' like
    Whatever gets me through the night

    What a life

    I'm steady always on the go
    You steady always on the go
    We steady losin' all control

    What a life

    They say
    The truth ain't pretty
    But comin' from that pretty mouth
    The truth is fitting
    'Cause you ain't never talkin' loud
    And you know plenty
    Yea you know what I'm talkin' bout
    'Cause you just get me
    Yeah you so pretty

    If everything is dipped in gold
    Then baby it will never grow
    Everything sweet ain't sugar coated

    What a lie

    What a life
    What a life that I've been given
    What a life
    What a life that I been living
    What a life
    What a life we die to live in
    What a life Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
