Lucky Me (幸運如我) - Jay-Z

Written by:K. Anderson/Steve Jordan/Anthony Best/Shawn Carter

How can you fairly assess something from the outside looking in

 

There's gotta be them times you'll be wrong nah mean

 

How can a motherf**ker go round and hate a ni**a

He never even met that he don't even know and sh*t

 

I think this rap sh*t is all beef

 

Y'all don't even know every day I'm living with stress

Got up out the streets you think a ni**a could rest

Can't even enjoy myself at a party unless

I'm on the dance floor hot a** vest

You think I'm freakin' these chicks right

Try not to brush against they chest

You get a lawsuit for sh*t like that I feel trapped

Swear to everything when I leave this earth

It's gon' be on both feet never knees in the dirt

You could try me f**ka but when I squeeze it hurts fine

We'll lose two lives yours and mines

Gimme any amount of time don't let Ms Carter grieve

At the funeral parlor drippin' tears on my sleeve

Told the judge didn't budge it was him or me

And I ain't trying to be hard but I'm guilty as charged

Put my mercy on this court and my faith in God

And pray hard none of my nephews wanna be stars Lucky Me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

I hate all girls with alterior motives

 

That's why I'm twenty plus years old no sons no daughters

Hate putting my life in the hands of fake promoters

Hear the hate in my voice right I hate that you noticed

Niggas wanna strip to the bone for sh*t you own

Hate a ni**a like that fagot get your own

Hate that I can't roam the street without the clip and chrome

Knowing one day I'ma have to flip c'mon

You know the sh*t don't stop 'til the Crist don't pop

And you have to kill a ni**a and your wrist don't lock

 

I'm trapped the whole worlds against me in fact

 

It ain't no turning back Bring It On

Hate the price of fame cause it cost too much

Can I live without y'all niggas saying I floss too much

Hate the way you make this hate flow all through us

Steady looking for flaws through us lucky me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

Ni**a see you in the street pretend to be friendly

But I know any type of success breeds envy

I know in the back of your mind your conjuring ways to hen me

Leave my friends in a circle pouring out Henny

But G's is heaven bound so how I'm goin' receive

Anything y'all pour to the ground next time throw it up

 

And ain't nothing changed so even in my afterlife I show it up

Don't grieve for me my art remains

Like a dart from the speaker to your heart

Spiritually through the portal now my words as a mortal

Plan to leave without a fight I plant a seed I give life

Though I can't see past the girls greed to call her wife

Next time your thinking heist better be precise

 

Cause I'm fully prepared one of us is goin' leave here

 

I have no regrets even though I wanna see grow

My godsons Boogie Sonny and Rimo

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me

 

You only know what you see

 

You don't understand what it takes to be me
