J. COLE - Crooked Smile

rate me

~~~~Chorus~~~~

On my way on my way on my way down

On my way on my way on my way down

You're the one that was tryin a keep me way down

Like the sun all you know I'm on my way down

~Bar Section 1~

They tell me I should fix my grill cause I got money now

I ain't gonna sit around and front like I ain't thought about it

A perfect smile is more appealing but it's funny how

My shit is crooked look at how far I done got without it

I keep my twisted grill just to show the kids it's real

We ain't picture perfect but we’re worth the picture still

I got smarts, I got riches, and I got bitches still

And they all look like eyebrows, thick as hell

Love yourself girl and nobody will

Are you a woman? I don't know how you deal

With all the pressure to look impressive and go out in heels

I feel for you

Killing yourself to find a man that'll kill for you

You wake up put makeup on

Stare in the mirror but it's clear that you can’t face what’s wrong

No need to fix what God already put his paint brush on

Your roommate yelling; "Why you gotta take so long?"

---what it's like to have a crooked smile

This crooked smile

~~~~Chorus~~~~

On my way on my way on my way down

On my way on my way on my way down

You're the one that was tryin a keep me way down

Like the sun all you know I'm on my way down

~~Bar Section 2~~

To all the women with the flaws I know it's hard my darling

You wonder why you're lonely and your man's not calling

You keep falling victims cause you're insecure

So when I tell you that you're beautiful you can't be sure

Cause he don't seem to want you back and it's got you askin'

So all you see is what you lacking, not what you packing

Take it from a man that love what you got

And baby you're a star don't let them tell you you're not

Now is it real? Eyebrows fingernails hair

Is it real? If it's not girl you don't care

Cause what's real is something that the eyes can't see

What the hands can’t touch

What them broads can’t be and that’s you

Never let'em see you frown

And if you need a friend to pick you up I’ll be around

And we can ride with the windows down the music loud

I can tell you ain’t laughed in a while

But I wanna see that crooked smile

~~~~Chorus~~~~

On my way on my way on my way down

On my way on my way on my way down

You're the one that was tryin a keep me way down

Like the sun all you know I'm on my way down

[HOOK]

Crooked smile got could style on 'em

Back round

Crooked smile got could style on 'em

Back round

You’re the one that was trying to keep me way down.

Like the sun I know you know I found my way back round

~~~Bar Section 3~~~

We nothing like the people on the screen

You know them movie stars picture perfect beauty queens

But we got dreams and we got the right to chase ‘em

Look at the nation that’s a crooked smile

Braces couldn’t even straighten

Seem like half the race is either on probation or in jail

Wonder why we inhale cause we in hell already

I asked if my skin pale would I then sell like Eminem or Adele?

No one more time for the 'Ville

And fuck all of that beep shit nigger let’s make a mil

Hey officer man we don’t want nobody getting killed

Just open up that cell let my brother out of jail

I got money for the bail now, I'm well now

If you asking will I tell now? Hell no

I ain’t snitching cause

Man they get them niggers stitches now

If you was around then you wouldn’t need a witness now

How you like this crooked smile?

On my way on my way on my way down

On my way on my way on my way down

You're the one that was tryin a keep me way down

Like the sun all you know I’ll find my way down

Crooked smile got could style on 'em

Back round

You’re the one that was trying to keep me way down.

Like the sun I know you know I found my way back round

La la la la la la la

La la la la la la la

La la la la la la la

La la la la la la la

On my way on my way on my way down

On my way on my way on my way down

You're the one that was tryin a keep me way down

Like the sun all you know I’ll find my way down

You're the one that was tryin a keep me way down

Like the sun all you know I’ll find my way down
