DRAKE - Thank Me Now

rate me

You could thank me now

uh, go a head

Thank Me Later yeah I know what I said

but later doesn't always come so instead

it's okay,

You could thank me now

uhh, yeah, well alright, here I go

my hollow from my heart is hard to follow

lately I've been drinking like theres a message in a bottle

alohas to women with no ties

to men that I know well

that way there are no lies

you could thank me now for all the info I give to you niggas

I'm on the brink of influential

I'm here for you niggas

I guess a hit doesn't add up to a career for you niggas

I must have been hard to watch,

what a year for you niggas

it's December 31st and we in Miami just meditating

you got the resolutions, we just got reservations

living out a dream, it feels like I stayed up

and we just wanna party, patron straight up

fuck that old shit, I'm on new things

OVO clique, Red wing boot gang

yeah we want it all, half was never the agreement

who'd thought the route we chose would ever end up this scenic

I could relate to kids going straight to the league

when they recognise that you got what it takes to succeed

and thats around the time that your idols become your rivals

you make friends with Mike but gotta AI him for your survival

damn, I swear sports and music are so synonomous

cause we wanna be them and they wanna be us

yeah so on behalf of the demanded

and the entertainment that you take for granted

you could thank me now...

and oh my goodness you"re welcome

you're welcome

at this point me is who I'm trying to save myself from

rappers hit me up and I never know what to tell them

cause they think that I can help them get back to where they fell from

but drink up because everyone here is good tonight

except the niggas that I came with, they good for life

yeah, thats how you know it's going down

in case another chance never comes around...


Uhh, shallow nigga but deep enough to have gone swimming

I think Im spending all my time with the wrong women

I think I have a chance at love but knowing me I miss it

cause me dedicating my time just isnt realistic

man the good girls went silent on me

they got a boyfriend or left for college on me

and all the bad ones I used to hit her friends now

that make me wish I had a little less mileage on me

but do I ever come up in discussion over double pump latte's

and low fat muffins, do I?

Or is missing what we had outta the question

Im probably just the reason that you learned your lesson

I got flows for the Marilyn Monroes whos there before it all

I guess thats how it goes

they hear about your cons or focus on your pro's

and love you for who you are from the bottom of their soul

but those same ones from your area will grow

into women that are ready to get married at hello

because of what they allow

where are they all now

I know there somewhere watching so Im trying to make them proud

searching for the meaning

youll find it next to me

and tell me Im the highest, guess we finally get to see

Im feeling like Nas who am I to disagree

they say that doors open up as soon as you find the missing key

its probably why Im in this bitch shining

jump up in the sky and put the stars into alignment

I rep the ATF in case you need to be reminded

and the bandwagons full but you can try and run behind it

Im sorry, poolside drinking

margharita rounds

shout out to my city though I hardly be in town

Im the Black Sheep, but Chris Farley wears the crown

and I know life is just a game in which the cards are facing down

Im in the world where things are taken, never given

how long they choose to love you will never be your decision

and Im aware that this could be the last time you listen

so while Im still here in this position...
