Nobody Wins

Album: The Past, The Present, The Future (2014)
  • (No, no, no, no, no, no)
    Nobody wins
    (No, no, no, no, no, no) Bobby!
    (No, no, no, no, no, no)

    We don't see the same, and we don't speak the same
    But if we don't get shit right this go 'round then we ain't gon' beat the game
    You can see the pain, we entertain when disagreements turn into blame
    The heated words turn into flames under your skin, it just aggravates
    Every nerve you got, and every working vein
    gotta take a cool breath and respirate
    We gon' get it right, no matter how many steps it takes (one, two)
    'Cause the devil gon' lie, and Heaven don't hesitate
    And Lord knows we need Heaven, 'cause we're going through Hell each and every day
    These emotions bottled up inside
    are hot enough to fry thermometers and lighters on my mind
    A lot of us will find the answers obvious, but probably all the time
    You gotta know the signs and loosen up how tight you hold your pride
    Put emotions to the side and get a grip before you lose your mind

    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fight, fuss and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fuss, fight and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (watch it!)

    Stop throwing those pots and pans
    (Nobody wins) Watch it!
    We don't have to use our hands
    (No we don't) Watch it!
    Baby, can you understand?
    (Baby, can you understand?) Watch it!
    I'm just being a man

    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fight, fuss and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fuss, fight and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (Watch it!)

    Gossipin', gossipin' and gossipin'
    Everybody don't got your back, even if you got a lot of friends
    Everybody sins, everybody sins if somebody loses, nobody wins
    Sometimes you just need space, sometimes you need oxygen
    Negative ain't so bad when it's negative space
    If you do anything with nothing, then nothing can get in your way
    I always remember when karma comes 'round, 'cause she got a similar face
    You gotta know when to hold what you got and know when to give it away

    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fight, fuss and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fuss, fight and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (watch it!)

    Let's talk about this
    (Let's just talk about this) Watch it!
    I'm glad that you missed
    (Nobody wins) Watch it!
    You almost tore up my face
    (You almost tore up my face) Watch it!
    We can't afford to buy another place

    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fight, fuss and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    When we fuss, fight and argue
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    We say we're leaving but we never do
    Nobody wins (watch it!)

    Nobody wins (watch it!)
    (I don't care what you do)
    Nobody wins (watch it!)
    Might as well stay home
    Nobody wins (watch it!)
    Stay home, stay home, yeah
    Nobody wins (no, no)
    Nobody wins (no, no)
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no)
    Don't fool yourself (nobody wins)
    Trying to fool somebody else
    Nobody, nobody, nobody
    Nobody wins (no no no no no no) Writer/s: BOBBY RAY SIMMONS JR., DONALD EARLE DEGRATE, MARQUINARIUS SANCHEZ HOLMES
