Apple of My Eye
Just being somebody that the neighborhood respected And my mama could be proud of, was the apple of my eye That's all I ever wanted, just to being something man So at that point what else could you ask for? Tears running down a nigga face In a room full of failures I feel out of place Still sleeping on the floor when you deserve better Got you reeking through the cold even in warm weather I told Meek I wouldn't trust Nicki Instead of beefing with your dog you just give him some distance We all make mistakes, lets not be too specific Like I rather be a killer than be statistic I never fold no I never ran On my soul I'll roll like an avalanche I thank the Lord I got some great friends That's why every bottle I open I say "Amen" Just had a seizure at the Super Bowl Woke up in the third quarter looking for the smoke If it's more than a quarter million, I'll count it twice Pucci broke my heart shit, I call it life And never will I call it right Not perfect but I'm the one you would call at night Traveling the world, I'm just reppin' my city But rarely do I hear that this nigga done did it When niggas in fatigues will keep you intrigued 'Cause the loss of life's the only thing niggas believe So I pray you listen carefully Then I become another muthafuckin' casualty Always speak and say right I just never ever walk on by (Never ever walk on by) You even stop and put one in the sky (The sky) You do it for the love of you and I (For the love of you and) Standin' on your block but you so out of place Uncle on the couch, momma running out of space Lights off so you never tend to speak much Go your separate ways every time the lease up A fat ugly nigga thought I'd never be nothing Another tree stump, happy with his free lunch Duckin' pigeons, I'm an eagle on a sunny day Flap my wings once a week, pray I glide safe I want fried chicken at my funeral Rolls Royces, dope boys, Sway interviews Everybody dying for the same things Cop kill a nigga, don't nobody gangbang I'm happy Donald Trump became the president Because we gotta destroy, before we elevate Real shit, look at me inside The White House With a pocket full of weed inside The White House Dead presidents tattooed on a nigga chest U.S. treasury addressing me, mad at my address Own the biggest residential pool is the US Drake and Kanye can invite every bitch they ever met Finger fuckin' bitches in the holy water Then I go an tell what happened to my only daughter So her daddy told it to her firsthand Never perfect but its not just bout them purses Always speak and say right I just never ever walk on by (Never ever walk on by) You even stop and put one in the sky (The sky) You do it for the love of you and I (Yeah) The streets could never teach me All the things I got from you I found myself in the wrong lane And I ended up in pain (Pain) I was strolling down a dark street When this girl passed me by She said you've always been a good friend (Always been a good friend) And you never never never let me down I'll just fall back, never turn back Let it go, let it go I'll just fall back, never turn back Let it go, let it go Always speak and say right I just never ever walk on by (Never ever walk on by) You even stop and put one in the sky (The sky) You do it for the love of you and I For the love of you and I (Maybach Music)
