IDK & Sevyn Streeter – Cry in Church Lyrics

[Intro: Sevyn Streeter]
Rather feed my soul, rather be alone
Rather be a daydreamer, rather be a real one
In the backseat, Maybach with the driver
Movin’ like a trap nigga, gotta stay in low-low
I’d rather live lawless with a lil’ bitch
That I buy all of the shit even though it’s on discount
Rather be a poor man with a lil’ affection
Everybody wanna feel special

[Chorus: IDK]
I’d rather be broke as hell than rich and sitting all alone
I’d rather be hand-in-hand, I just can’t do it on my own
I’d rather be good inside than livin’ happy on the outside
Ooh
I’d rather be broke as hell than rich and sitting all alone
‘Cause how I’m gon’ pay my bail if no one’s pickin’ up the phone?
I’d rather be good inside than livin’ happy on the outside
Ooh

[Verse 1: IDK]
I could be difficult sometimes
But that come from the ego in this mind of mine
My self-esteem could make a nigga emo
The hate could come from love and baby, we know
I’m my only lover, I’m my only friend
Working on my flaws, I think I’m clocking in
I’m my only weakness
I hope I’m off on the weekends

[Chorus: IDK]
I’d rather be broke as hell than rich and sitting all alone
I’d rather be hand-in-hand, I just can’t do it on my own
I’d rather be good inside than livin’ happy on the outside
Ooh
I’d rather be broke as hell than rich and sitting all alone
‘Cause how I’m gon’ pay my bail if no one’s pickin’ up the phone?
I’d rather be good inside than livin’ happy on the outside
Ooh

[Bridge: IDK]
Sometimes
This ego in this mind of mine
Mm, ego
We know

[Verse 2: IDK]
Don’t ask if I need a tissue
I don’t need no fuckin’ tissue
These ain’t tears, they’re just something in my eye
So please don’t press the issue
Please don’t press no buttons
One of these things for self-destruction
Forgot which one, I ain’t read instructions
That right there is the key to my suffering
Mama ain’t home, five years old
Blue’s Clues raised me, Cheerios saved me
Porno stepfather hid is what changed me
He ain’t do a good job, he was too lazy
While y’all was in daycare
I was in Jay care
No lace front
This truth, no fake hair
I wish you ain’t had me at nineteen, I’d probably grow up better
I wish you would talk to me nicely, I probably would love better
I wish you would read to me every night, I probably would read more
And all of this pain on my back gon’ be havin’ me lookin’ like Igor
I put all the hurt in this art of mine
Yeah, it’s one more thing on my mind
Just maybe a couple of lullabies
Was all that I needed to fight all the demons, my spirit is beatin’
Let’s pray

[Interlude: DMX]
Father God, I am just learning how to pray—bear with me
First, I thank You for the life of everything here with me
Then I thank You for the love you give me, why?
I don’t know, I don’t deserve it and it hurts inside
Many a nights I cried and called Your name out loud
I didn’t call You when I was doing good, too proud
And still, You gave me love, I wasn’t used to that
Most of the people that gave me love ended up takin’ it back
It’s something new to me
So I’m askin’ You for time to adjust
Let me make it there, I will be the one You can trust
What I stand for, I put my life on, I do
I guess what I’m asking is, show me how to stand for You

[Outro: IDK]
Hush, little baby, don’t you cry
Mama’s gonna sing you a lullaby
And if that lullaby don’t work
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird

Polo G – Fame & Riches Lyrics

[Intro]
Uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh (I’m Harry, Harry Potter)

[Chorus: Polo G]
Living lawless, they might say I’m a menace
Father God, I just pray for forgiveness
We fell off and shit got strange ’cause of distance
Wish I could get some millions in exchange for my feelings
Feel like you had it harder, we felt pain, what’s the difference?
Lil’ bro gon’ let it bang, fuck a witness
Cold killer raised from the trenches
For my dawgs, I’d give up all the fame and the riches
Just remember my name when I’m finished

[Verse 1: Polo G]
Baby, this Ralph Lauren, not Lacoste, tryna shake these toxic thoughts
But if a pussy play, we knock him off
And when I had a kid, I seen what my mama saw
Got niggas pocket watching, tryna add up what I bought
He might get a halo from these hollows
Been drownin’ in my sorrows, but hopefully I’ll be fine by tomorrow
In my feelings in this Wraith ’cause that’s where stars cope
Insecure but he so scared to let his scars show
Might cash out on the ‘Vette like fuck a car note
Tired of being heart broke, numb to the pain, he let his heart go
Posted on the strip, selling Demi Lovato
Pull up, take his soul, we don’t borrow (Fuck the opps, get money, that’s the motto)

[Chorus: Polo G]
Living lawless, they might say I’m a menace
Father God, I just pray for forgiveness
We fell off and shit got strange ’cause of distance
Wish I could get some millions in exchange for my feelings
Feel like you had it harder, we felt pain, what’s the difference?
Lil’ bro gon’ let it bang, fuck a witness
Cold killer raised from the trenches
For my dawgs, I’d give up all the fame and the riches
Just remember my name when I’m finished

[Verse 2: Roddy Ricch]
Ayy, time wait for no man, I’m off this romance
She just wanna fuck to Jamie Foxx and Kanye West, “Slow Jamz”
Been taking it slow, ain’t popped a pill in a minute
And sometimes I don’t know who by my side ’cause these niggas tell me lies
Got crossed too many times, you can’t catch me by surprise
My mama took me to church, I’m tryna keep up with my tithes
Got a purpose, gotta stay up on they tops
I know they praying I’ma flop, they ain’t know I was a blessing in disguise
And I know that if I ended up in prison, they’ll never ever visit
They’ll never ever send a J-Pay
I promise, I’ma make it home to my lil’ baby
I promise to never ever listen to naysay

[Chorus: Polo G & Roddy Ricch]
Living lawless, they might say I’m a menace
Father God, I just pray for forgiveness (That’s why I gotta keep it true)
We fell off and shit got strange ’cause of distance
Wish I could get some millions in exchange for my feelings (Make sure I keep a cutter, watch out for my lil’ brother)
Feel like you had it harder, we felt pain, what’s the difference?
Lil’ bro gon’ let it bang, fuck a witness
Cold killer raised from the trenches
For my dawgs, I’d give up all the fame and the riches
Just remember my name when I’m finished (When I’m finished)

DMX – Skyscrapers Lyrics

[Intro: DMX & Swizz Beatz]
Rrr, rrr (Right)
Time for us to reach for the skies
Talk to ’em

[Chorus: Bono]
I’ve seen coal turn to diamonds
And blind man’s visions become skyscrapers
What begun as a scene is no longer a dream
Let’s become skyscrapers, skyscrapers

[Verse 1: DMX]
Whenever I went through something, it brought me closer to God (Come on)
And I stayed in somethin’, so now I’m closer to God (Come on)
But closer to his heart, the attacks get stronger (Uh-huh)
Become much harder to fight, and they last longer (Yeah)
That’s what it’s always been: joy with the pain (Rrr)
Dark with the light (Rrr), sun with the rain (What?)
But, with the right perspective there’s somethin’ to gain
Look for the good and the bad, like the sun when it rains

[Chorus: Bono]
I’ve seen coal turn to diamonds
And blind man’s visions become skyscrapers
What begun as a scene is no longer a dream
Let’s become skyscrapers, skyscrapers

[Verse 2: DMX]
I don’t like better, better get you comfortable
Comfort put you to sleep, even though it’s up with you (What?)
Hatin’ our relationship, but what I love
Hate it because it kills me, love it for what it does
Every day I live, every day I die
Don’t always laugh but every day I cry
Used to wonder why, now I enjoy the rain
Be stronger with the struggle, can’t live without the pain
I just wanna be heard, fuck the fame
My words will live forever, fuck my name
Father God, please give me the strength I need
I was born in the dirt, just like you planted the seed
Let me grow

[Chorus: Bono]
I’ve seen coal turn to diamonds
And blind man’s visions become skyscrapers
What begun as a scene is no longer a dream
Let’s become skyscrapers

[Bridge: Bono]
Put your hands high and touch the sky
Put your hands high and touch the skyscrapers
Put your hands high and touch the sky
Put your hands high and touch the skyscrapers
Breezes in the summer comin’ sky
In jungles through the life of flashin’ lights
Feel for the, feel for far away

[Outro: DMX]
Reach for the sky
Reach for the sky
Reach for the sky
Reach for the sky
The sky is not in control of you
