Lose You (失去你) (Explicit) - Drake
Written by：Noah 40 Shebib/Stwo/Drake
I don't care what society thinks
They're nothing anyway
They're no better than me
Out there you just have to fit into a pattern
That somebody's already laid out for you
Life we live you have to set your own patterns
Your own ideals
You have to handle the whole job yourself
No snow tires the rain slip slide like Trick Daddy and Trina
Oli North pull in like 10 million a season
Queen Street visions that nobody believed in
If we not on the charts my XO niggas eatin'
Fifty two consecutive weekends shout out to Weeknd
The city gets stronger when everybody is speakin'
Not when everybody out here beefin'
We got it now we just gotta keep it
America's most wanted man I'm still on the run
All these number ones and we still not the ones
No hard feelings but I'll still get you spun
Went and got diplomas and we still goin' dumb
Please never label niggas who lay down for a livin'
My competition it's beyond offensive
I'm in it for the glory not the honor mention
Not tryna be fourth and inches I'm tryna go the distance
Yeah distance I'm on a different mission
This the remix to Ignition hot and fresh out the kitchen
How you forget to fill up with gas on the road to riches
Too overly ambitious too late to fix it
Too late for condolences when it's over with
I need to start sayin' sh*t when I notice it
Be open with people I need some closure with
Be honest with myself and take ownership
Opinions started to burn when tables started to turn
I really used to feel like they loved a ni**a at first
Excitin' times revitalized
Trust this little light of mine is gonna shine positively
I'm just takin' what God will give me
Grateful like Jerry Bob and Mickey
Better attitude we'll see where it gets me
I know catchin' flies with honey is still sticky
I wrote the book on world class finesses
And tasteful gestures and makin' efforts
And never placin' second
And even better knowin' you're first but then takin' second
Inspirin' and never takin' credit
I know I deserve more I just never said it
Two middle fingers as I make a exit yeah
Did I lose you
Did I did I
Winnin' is problematic
People like you more when you workin' towards somethin'
Not when you have it
Way less support from my peers
In recent years as I get established
Unforgivin' times but f**k it I manage
Why is my struggle different than others'
Only child that's takin' care of his mother
As health worsens and bills double
That's not respectable all of a sudden
I don't get a pat on the back for the come up
What do you see when you see me
When did all the things I mean
From the bottom of my heart start to lose meaning
Maybe I share it with too many people
Back then it used to just feel like our secret
Back when I would write
And not think about how they receive it
I be tryna manifest the things I needed
And look now I mean it's hard to believe it even for me
But you're mindful of it all when your mind full of it all
How they go from not wantin' me at all
To wantin' to see me lose it all
Things get dark but my aura just starts glowin'
I'm overcome with emotions
Ones I can't access when I'm stoned sober
Jealous ones still envy and niggas turn king cobra
I could only speak what I know of
Man we wrote the book on calculated thinkin'
And icy Heineken drinkin' and rival neighborhoods linkin'
And puttin' your trust in someone
With the risk of financially sinkin'
All you did was write the book on garbage a** Rollies
Ego strokin' picture postin'
Claimin' that you'd do it for motivational purposes only
But you just had to show me
See I know 'cause I study you closely
I know when someone lyin'
I notice people standin' for nothin' and gettin' tired
I know what we're both thinkin' even when you're quiet
Sometimes I gotta just make sure that I didn't lose you
