Devastated

Album: All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ (2016)
  • I used to feel so devastated
    At times I thought we'd never make it
    But now we on our way to greatness
    And all that ever took was patience
    I-I-I-I used to feel so devastated
    At times I thought we'd never make it, yeah
    But now we on our way to greatness
    And all that ever took was patience

    Okay, just getting better each day
    Stacking that cheddar, cheese cake
    Looking up to the Lord, we pray
    Trying to be my best each day
    Until I'm laid to rest we lay, yeah
    'Til the time being we lit
    Hoping I don't let it get all in my head
    I don't need money just to say that I'm rich
    Couple little honeys wanna get in my bed
    But they used to run from me when I had nothing
    Now they want to fuck 'cause they see me stuntin'
    Nigga came up off the hustling
    Living in a life of lux and I'm feeling like the man
    If you ain't in my Chucks, then you wouldn't understand homie
    'Bout these rubber bands on me
    Make her wanna dance for me
    Probably leave her man for me
    Standing in the stairs Goddamn
    (She used to front way back, now she just a fan)

    I used to feel so devastated
    At times I thought we'd never make it, yeah
    Now we on our way to greatness
    And all that ever took was patience
    I-I-I-I used to feel so devastated
    At times I thought we'd never make it, yeah
    But now we on our way to greatness
    And all that ever took was patience

    I put my pain in a cadence
    Turn my brain up a wavelength
    Now we're flowing the ceiling
    So just go with the feeling
    Baby soak up the vibe
    Let's roll some dope up, get high
    We gon' blow smoke in the sky
    'Til we can't open our eyes

    I put my pain in a cadence
    Turn my brain up a wavelength
    Now we're flowing the ceiling
    So just go with the feeling
    Baby soak up the vibe
    Let's roll some dope up, get high
    We gon' blow smoke in the sky
    'Til we can't open our eyes

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Skr, skr

    I used to feel so devastated
    At times I thought we'd never make it, yeah
    Now we on our way to greatness
    And all that ever took was patience
    I-I-I-I used to feel so devastated
    At times I thought we'd never make it, yeah
    But now we on our way to greatness
    And all that ever took was patience

    I used to feel so (so devastated)
    At times I thought we'd (we'd never make it)
    But now we on our way
    And all that ever took was patience Writer/s: JO-VAUGHN VIRGINIE, KIRLAN LABARRIE, POWERS PLEASANT, ADAM PALLIN
