J. COLE - Breakdown

rate me

[Verse 1]

Look, I just shed tears homie and now I ain’t to proud to admit it

Just seen my father for the first time in a minute

And when I say a minute I mean years man

Damn, a whale could have swam in them tears fam

Cause as I left em’ I reflected on my younger days

When it was just me and my brother and my mother played

Father, cause no other man bothered

Not even my biological, it never seemed logical

But I accepted it cause I ain’t know no better

Thought I was brighter than a Polo sweater

No pops was like Martin with no Coretta

So many things you could have told me

And saved me the trouble of letting my mistakes show me

I feel like you barely know me

And that’s a shame cause our last name is the same

That blood type flowing through our veins is the same

My mama left you and it may be that anger’s to blame

But that’s no excuse, only you and God know the truth

And why you only call monthly, barely ever saw me

Spend some summers with you and played with my cousin Maury

Maybe I should be tellin’ you “f-ck you” cause you selfish

But I want a father so bad, I can’t help but…

Break down, I break down

Can’t help but break down

I break down

[Verse 2]

I never thought I’d see my mama on that shit, man

It’s f-cking with her body, now she sick, damn

I wanted a big house with a white picket fence and a pool

Who would have ever thought that it would come to this, man?

Quicksand is what this life feel like

That shit these rappers kick is nothing like real life

You made a milli off of servin’ hard white? yeah right

My mama tell you what addicted to that pipe feel like

Stupid niggas, I heard the cops been shooting niggas

I swear to god, wish I could bullet proof my niggas

Can’t get no jobs, but they still recruiting niggas

We tryna stand tall when it get too crucial niggas

Break down! We break down

We break down, we break down

[Verse 3]

He’s serving time, locked down

And she don’t want nobody to know, his daughter 25 pounds

By the time he get out, she gon’ be 4

Now will his girl stay down?

Ain’t no doubt she love him, yeah that’s for sure

But temptation stays round

And if she strayed, how could he ever know?

Never know and so, she goes to the club on the weekend

A little freaking, but them niggas holla

But she never speaking, but tonight I see the devil creeping

Cause she been lonely, she ain’t felt a man in 7 seasons

Damn! She do the best that she can

Her mama telling her to find another man

She college educated with a felon boyfriend

That’s what she thinking tonight

Maybe she’s right, but please

Stay down mama! Gotta be strong, don’t break down mama!

Please stay down mama! Gotta be strong, don’t break down mama!

Don’t break down, dont break down, dont break down

Break break down, steady breaking me down

Break break down, steady breaking me down

Break break down, steady breaking me down
