KENDRICK LAMAR

KENDRICK LAMAR - I

rate me

(Intro)

We got a young brotha that stands for somethin'!

We got a young brotha that believes in the all of us!

Brotha Kendrick Lamar! He's not a rapper, he's a writer, he's an author!

And if ya read between the lines, we'll learn how to luv one anotha

But ya can't do that

I said, ya can't do that without luvin' yoself first

(Verse)

(This is a world premiere)

I done been thru a whole lot

Trial, tribulations, but I know God

Satan wanna put me in a bow tie

Prayin' that the holy water don't go dry

As I look around me

So many muthafuckas wanna down me

But ain't no nigga neva drown me

In front of a dirty double-mirror they found me

(Hook)

And I luv myself

(The world is a ghetto wit big guns and picket signs)

I luv myself

(But it can do what it want wheneva it wants and I don’t mind)

I luv myself

(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)

I luv myself

(One day at a time, sun gon shine)

(Verse 2)

Errybody lookin' at ya crazy (crazy)

What ya gon' do? (What ya gon do?)

Lift up yo head and keep movin' (keep movin')

Or let the paranoia haunt ya? (haunt ya)

Peace to fashion police, I wear my heart

On my sleeve, let the runway start

Ya know the miserable do luv company

What do ya want from me and my scars?

Errybody lack confidence, errybody lack confidence

How many times our potential was anonymous?

How many times the city makin' me promises?

So I promise this

(Hook)

And I luv myself

(The world is a ghetto wit big guns and picket signs)

I luv myself

(But it can do what it want wheneva it wants and I don’t mind)

I luv myself

(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)

I luv myself

(One day at a time, sun gon shine)

(Verse 3)

They wanna say there's a war outside and a bomb in the street

And a gun in the hood and a mob of police

And a rock on the corner and a line full of fiends

And a bottle full of lean and a model on a scheme, yup

These days of frustration, keep y'all on duckin' rotation

I duck these gold faces, post up fee fi fo fum basis

Dreams of realities peace, blow steam in the face of the beast

The sky can fall down, the wind can cry now

The strong in me, I still smile

(Hook)

And I luv myself

(The world is a ghetto wit big guns and picket signs)

I luv myself

(But it can do what it want wheneva it wants and I don’t mind)

I luv myself

(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)

I luv myself

(One day at a time, sun gon shine)

(Bridge)

Walk my bare feet (walk my bare feet)

Down, down valley deep (down, down valley deep)

I keep my fee fi fo fum (fee fi fo fum)

I keep my heart undone (my heart undone)

(Hook)

And I luv myself

(The world is a ghetto wit big guns and picket signs)

I luv myself

(But it can do what it want wheneva it wants and I don’t mind)

I luv myself

(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)

I luv myself

(One day at a time, sun gon shine)

(Verse 4)

I went to war last night

With an automatic weapon, don't nobody call a medic

I'mma do it till I get it right, I went to war last night

I've been dealin' with depression eva since an adolescent

Duckin' erry otha blessin', l can neva see the message

I can neva take the lead, I can neva bob and weave

For my nigga that be lettin' ‘em annihilate me

And its evident I'm movin' at a meteor speed

Finna run into a buildin', lay my body in the street

Keep my money in the ceilin', let my mama know I'm free

Give my story to the children and the lesson they can read

And the glory to the feelin' of the only unseen

Seen enough, make a muthafucka scream, I luv myself!

(Outro)

I lost my head, I've must misread what the good book said

Oh, woes keep me, it's a jungle inside

Give myself again 'til the well runs dry
