J. COLE - Dollar and a Dream III

rate me

Yeah, hey, Cole world


Hey, I gotta dollar and a dream, that's all a nigga got

So if it's bout that cream, then I'm all up in the spot

I got a dollar and a dream, just a dollar and a dream

[Verse 1:]

Cole, walk with a nigga, I give you my pain

So much on my mind, I wonder how it fit in my brain

Scattered thoughts, dark secrets lead me to a blacker heart

Life can't get any worse, Stevie with his glasses off

Cause I still don't see hope, lookin' for a quick fix

When everyone I see is broke, get lost in weed smoke

Knowin' it make it worse, thoughts roam uncontrollably

Barely trustin' niggas, over a decade they been knowin' me

Shit, life at the bottom, nobody but God got em'

They say he wouldn't leave me, yet I'm fallin' like it's Autumn

Tell me, what do you do just when you're on your last dollar

And the stress of this mess you in can make your ass holla?

Do you fold, grow bitter and grow cold?

No longer fightin' now the only thing you grows old

Or do you flip that fuckin' dollar to a dream?

Whether a scholar or a fiend, watch a pawn become a king

Cole !

Young nigga with his jeans low

Nice guy, just got a mean flow

Never seen rich but he's seen poor

Mr. dollar and a dream in case yeeain't know


[Verse 2:]

Yeah, armed and ready, you niggas strung out, you spaghetti

Ya paper, confetti, small time, ya'll on one, I'm on mine

You logged off cause I'm online, small talk from small minds

I wanna buy the mall but there ain't shit in this small town

This where I get my dough

My niggas make sure the money right and then I rip the show

I run the town they tried to call me underground

I spun around like, you wish

Homie my backpack louis, now watch just how I do this

I got the nerds rappin' hard shit, dummies rappin' smart shit

Mozart meets Humphrey Bogart with this from the heart shit

Play your part, life is but a dream for me

I get a flash of nightmares when niggas scheme on me

It's hard to see my enemies, who infiltrated my team?

I take a step back and notice that things ain't what they seem

That's when a nigga refocus, yeah I turn on them high beams

I got that red dot waitin', I'm wastin' your whole regime

I wish a nigga would, boy you can't out-smart me

I let you feel like you the shit, but boy you can't out-fart me

Ya never have it, I know you want what I got

But nigga you ain't me, but you are what I'm not

And that's a phony ass, lonely ass, Cole is what you know me as

But we far from homies, if you know my mama, you know me

If ya don't then well I'm sorry, you should get to know Kay

Man she been workin' too hard, I should send her a bouquet

My goal this year is a real one, gonna stack a million

And as soon as I do, Mama that 9 to 5 is through

And I know I ain't been callin', but I'm thinkin' bout you

And all the shit that you been through

My girl and then my brother too

Cause this life gets hard on this road, yeah it's true

I don't never tell you how much I be stressin', but I do

But I suck it up for who? my fans, and my mans

Who probably never ever had this type of lifestyle in they plans

Hoppin' in and out of vans, on the buses, on the planes

Gettin' brain from a bitch and thinkin' "god damn, what's her name?"

Sometimes I just shake my head and tell myself this is a shame

And then my other side kick in like, "bitch don't be so fuckin' lame"

Dang, what a life, another day, another night

At times this shit is all blurry, pray and hope that God heard me

Just for those prayin' for me, man I know that y'all worry

But I ain't never failed and you can bet I never will

Cole !

Young nigga with his jeans low

Nice guy, just got a mean flow

Never seen rich but he's seen poor

Mr. dollar and a dream in case yeeain't know


Hey, cause nigga that's life, and trust me I'm livin'

Look what a nigga done made out the shit that I was given

Look what a nigga made out, look what a nigga made out

Got a dollar and a dream, three<br />

<br />
