  • My friends, real friends, better than your friends
    That's how we keep poppin' out that Benz, yeah
    No foes, real friends, we ain't even got to pretend, yeah
    Get bands, get bands, spend it all on my friends

    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    And never let me down (they never let me down)
    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    And never let me drown (never let me drown)
    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    And never let me drown (never let me down)
    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    I'll never hit the ground (never let me drown, never let me drown)

    My friends, real friends, better than your friends, yeah
    That's how we keep popping out that Benz, yeah
    For friends, real friends, better than your friends, yeah
    That's them, that's them, they know all my business

    I don't know what I would do without all of my crew, yeah
    I ain't makin' no room, yeah, I ain't makin' no new friends
    I don't make no moves, yeah, without tellin' my crew, yeah
    That's just how we do, yeah, that's just how we do, oh
    Goddamn it, I love my life, Styrofoam cups, no ice
    Party 'fore we go inside
    Never let 'em out my sight, they're right by my side
    Them my ride-or-dies, them my ride-or-dies
    My friends are goals, your friends are foes
    We fly, why cry, our souls exposed, yeah
    We smoke, we laugh, your stress, my stress
    Closer than kin, I'm blessed, you blessed

    Ten toes, ten toes, we was out in that road, uh
    Lookin' for love in wrong places, we proposed to a stove, yeah
    Shared jewels, shared clothes, that's how deep this shit goes, yeah
    Every week, ya got bros, all of y'all fake close, yeah
    Y'all switchin' sides like NBA teams just after halftime
    I'm pullin' up on my dog, make sure he okay, I don't even have time
    He copped me a Porsche with butterscotch seats
    This 'fore they had mils
    Live better than rappers and they don't even have deals, that real
    Bought Emory a BM as soon as he came home
    We hopped on a plane, headed straight to the Bay
    That's how we turn the game on, it's game on
    Ty mama died, I was there, my nephew died, he was there
    He in my house more than I be there, more than B there
    Ty-Ty there, E there, Breezy there, Juan there
    High here, Chaka there, Law there, they all here, ah yeah
    Dez there, Kawanna here, shit feel like nirvana here
    Crib like the SoHo House, I might stay in and grow out my hair
    Tight circle, no squares, I'm geometrically opposed to you
    Y'all like to try angles, y'all like to troll, do you?
    Y'all talk around hoes, do you? Y'all don't follow codes do you?
    We know everything you say from niggas close to you
    You emotional; when I say free the dogs, I free 'em
    That's how Meek got his freedom
    Y'all put niggas on a t-shirt, it hurts you ain't never meet 'em
    You got niggas in the feds, you ain't even tryna feed 'em
    I'm tryna free the world, that's how deep I'm in
    I ain't goin' to nobody nothin' when me and my wife beefin'
    I don't care if the house on fire, I'm dyin', nigga, I ain't leavin'
    Ty-Ty take care of my kids, after he done grievin'
    If y'all don't understand that, we ain't meant to be friends

    Pull me up, pull me up, pull me up (pull me up)
    And never let me down (they never let me down)
    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    And never let me drown (never let me drown)
    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up (pull me up)
    And never let me down (never let me down)
    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    They never let me down (never let me drown, never let me down)

    They pray and pray for me, they pray and pray for me
    See better things for me
    Want better days for me unselfishly
    They pray and pray for me, they pray and pray for me
    Whenever I'm in need
    They in the backseat with the aux bumpin' B
    There ain't no pride involved, there ain't no pride involved
    In my heart, heart, heart, you know 4-4-4
    That's my d-d-dogs
    See your d-d-dog
    Point 'em out, out, out
    Point 'em out, out, out
    What would I be without my friends
    (What would I be without my friends)
    I ain't got no understanding
    (I ain't got no understanding)
    'Bout them, you might catch these hands
    We fall out and we make amends, yeah, yeah

    Your friends are foes, my friends are goals
    Closer than kin, our souls exposed
    Your friends are frauds, all they want is applause, yeah
    And my friends, real friends, closer than kin

    Gon' pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    Them never let me drown
    Them pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    Them never let me down
    Them pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    Them never let me down
    Them pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    Them pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    Them pull me up, pull me up, pull me up
    Them pull me up, pull me up, pull me up Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
