J. Cole - Sideline Story Lyrics

Kelly Rowland - See Me Lyrics Jack Harlow - I Got A Shot Lyrics Aminé - Hero Lyrics Iggy Azalea - Savior Lyrics Busta Rhymes - Betta Stay Up in Your House Lyrics Twista - Prayer Lyrics Diddy - Big Homie Lyrics Fabolous - Frenemies Lyrics
I put my heart and soul in this game, I'm feelin' drained
Unappreciated, unalleviated
Tired of comin' up short, fuck abbreviated
Want my whole name spelled out, my own pain spilled out
No pain, no gain, I blow brains, Cobain
Throw flames, Liu Kang, the coach ain't help out, so I call my own shots
I'm David Blaine, I'm breakin' out of my own box, you stay the same
But homie if you change, may you change for the better
Back when Martin King had a thing for Coretta
Wonder if she seen all the dreams he was dreamin'
Did she have a clue of all the schemes he was schemin'
Still loved him just enough to put up with the cheatin'
Months go by and only see him for a weekend
I say a prayer, hope my girl ain't leavin'
We all got angels, we all got demons
As you fall through the club
Bad bitches down to do all the above
Money comes fast so bein' hungry don't last
'Til you look in the mirror and you saw who you was
Cole World, it couldn't be more clearer
The time is now, couldn't be more her-er
My reign gonna last like 3-4 eras
Say hello to the real, I can be your hero

Hey, I'ma put us all on the map
Gone and I ain't lookin' back
I know they gon' feel it like they tank on E
I promise baby, you can bet the bank on me
'Cause can't nobody tell me what I ain't gonna be no more
You thinking I'ma fall, don't be so sure
I wish somebody made guidelines
On how to get up off the sidelines

Up in first class, laugh even though it's not funny
See a white man wonder how the fuck I got money
While he sit in coach, hate to see me walk past 'em
Young, black, pants sag, headphones blastin'
Know what he askin', "how did he manage?"
"With all the cards against him, he used them to his advantage!"
Slang we be speakin' probably soundin' like Spanish
Then I fuck they heads up when a nigga show manners
Some New York niggas thought it was funny callin' us 'Bama
Laughin' at the grammar 'cause they didn't understand us
Must've thought we slow, but little do they know
I came up in here to take advantage of that shit y'all take for granted
Opportunity that I would kill for
Lookin' at rappers like "what the fuck you got a deal for"
When I was ass out with my funds low
It's nice to know I had the whole world at my front door

Hey, I'ma put us all on the map
Gone and I ain't lookin' back
I know they gon' feel it like they tank on E
I promise baby, you can bet the bank on me
'Cause can't nobody tell me what I ain't gonna be no more
You thinking I'ma fall, don't be so sure
I wish somebody made guidelines
On how to get up off the sidelines

I made it to the rack, even though they tried to box me out
I got the key to the game, they tried to lock me out
But what they don't understand is this is all plan
It's a bigger picture and you can't photoshop me out
Some nigga ask me why Jay never shout me out
Like I'm supposed to give a fuck
Don't you know that I be out in France
Where the fans throw they hands like Pacquiao
Not 'cause my looks, 'cause my hooks could knock Rocky out
And my lines is designed from the heart
Young Simba been a lion from the start
Dumb nigga's, y'all been lyin from the start
My life's like a movie, truly
And these niggas is dyin' for the part
But, you'll never play me like LeBron vs. Jordan
Twenty years, wonder who they gon' say was more important
Both changed the game, came through and made a lane
Who's to say that who's greater, all we know, they ain't the same

Hey, I'ma put us all on the map
Gone and I ain't lookin' back
I know they gon' feel it like they tank on E
I promise baby, you can bet the bank on me
'Cause can't nobody tell me what I ain't gonna be no more
You thinking I'ma fall, don't be so sure
I wish somebody made guidelines
On how to get up off the sidelines
