J. COLE - Farewell

rate me

<!-- start of lyrics -->

Yeah, farewell

Hey, farewell

Alllmy niggas farewell


Look, some niggas let there dirt out,

Some niggas keep it in 'em

So when a man dies all his secrets go with him

And fame a part of history no longer known

Done did a lot of dirt I'll bury with me when I'm gone

When my story's told, how will they tell it?

Will they say I was a giver or will they say I was selfish

Will they say I was a sinner or pretend I was a saint

Will I go down as a winner, what's the picture they gon paint

Wouldn't say that I'm a quitter that's one thing I know I ain't ain't

Will they tarnish, will they taint?

Glorify me, overthink, say they know me, say I'm great

Say I'm phoney, I was fake

Say the things about me they never told me to my face

I was loved I was hated

Just a nigga with a dream

I'm a liar I was honest, I was all of these things

When I'm gone let em talk

They discussing who I am

When they bury me just know I was nothing but a man

Wasn't nothin' but a man

This for niggas climbin' heavens stairwell

Yeah, hey farewell

Yeh, hey farewell

This for niggas climbin' heavens stairwell

I pray you farewell

I bid you farewell

Yeah, ey, farewell

Yeah, yeah

If I should die Lord this here is my will

Reincarnate a nigga send me right back to the Ville

Let me relive my younger days just once again

Reenact my memories from every friend to every sin

Keeping demons buried in my closet

But yet I put in work like a deposit on my bank account

My eyes lit while I think about my childhood now I'm blanking out

Those were truly my best days

The only thing I had to stress was how the hell to get laid

Gradually turn into me stressin' how the hell to get paid

Been making songs so long, now how the hell they get played

Ok, I'm blowing up quickly

I guess the flow is sickly

But yet I can't forget my past and hope it won't forget me

Got good grades but age can't stop strays so pray for me

Pour liquor for my niggas but hey, don't wait for me

Cause I'm trying to cheat death, she had to bury my ass

You know the cliche "lifes a bitch" well I'm gon marry that ass

And sign a pre-nup

Think back to when we tore the skating rink up

Rapping and we scrapping, we got older hit the teen club

Gave mean mugs to niggas but we winked to all the girls

Then we went back to the crib thinking we had saw the World

No way, came a long way from having mom chauffer

It's hard to think these hoes at some point were so pure

But now we play the game, when it's over send me back

I swear I'm not gon change a thing

I swear I'm not gon change a thing

This for them niggas climbin' heavens stairwell

Yeah, hey farewell

I pray you niggas farewell

This for niggas climbin' heavens stairwell

Hey farewell, hey farewell

Yeah, farewell
