  • Im slowly billing up a savings every day
    Although it's hard to save when you getting low pay
    I stop shotting so my days are kinda quite
    I quite like it there less violent with less lyings
    I put in extra effort change up the gear on em
    I got the sails up and I'm steering em
    Im staying clear of em you know who I'm talking bout
    It's unnecessary for their names to leave my mouth
    Words are power so I manifest the thought
    Everything I think is what I thought
    Everything I thought is what I feel
    Everything I feel is what I am
    A woman with nuff tings brewing yea
    I got a half cup of hope and im sippin slow
    No more standing on the road cause that shit is old
    I got no time for time wasting time is precious
    i only got time for studio session now.

    Change in my mind move so consistently
    Tend to find I spend my time much more productively
    Use to try and exercise my immortality
    Change contains to better days
    But I forgot that my blood could clot my heart could stop

    See, I been spending quite some time thinking bout life
    And I been checking a couple things I need to get right
    I been acting loose and not in every way
    But in enough ways to put me in the wrong place
    Or maybe the right place cause lessons learned in mistakes
    And I been making some stupid decisions
    Things were I was thinking man I wasn't thinking
    Wasn't analysing checking the big picture yo
    Same script but just a different cast but if
    I re-write the present thats the past
    I'm dealing with the cards I'm dealt but im dealing with different cards
    To be in a different place ain't hard
    Or at least not as hard seem anyway
    So if you don't see my face around the way just pray
    Im doing better things and hopefully
    you can find them things inspiring seen

    Im trying to hold down the smoke and the drink
    And I'm trying to get in the gym amongst other things
    When my phone rings I'm scared of answering
    Cause the pull of the past is a proper hype ting
    It's so alluring but I'm maturing so when
    I travel in on the train I by a ticket now
    And when I'm ordering a drink I just sip it now
    Im in no rush to go nowhere fast cause
    Life seems when hell of a task so I better
    buckle up and sink the clutch on it fast quick Publisher: WORDS & MUSIC A DIV OF BIG DEAL MUSIC LLC, WORDS & MUSIC A DIV OF BIG DEAL MUSIC LLC
