Drake – Karaoke lyrics

Verse 1:
Things have been so crazy and hectic.
I should've gotten back by now.
But you know how much I wanted to make it.
It's probably better anyhow.

So if you gotta go,
If there's anything I should know,
If the spotlight makes you nervous,
If you're looking for a purpose,

You put the tea in the kettle and light it.
Put your hand on the metal and feel it.
But do you even feel it anymore?
I remember when you thought I was joking.
Now I'm off singing Karaoke.
Further than I've ever been. (oh noo, noo)

So if you gotta go,
If there's any way I can help,

Verse 2:
Isn't it ironic that the girl I wanna marry is a wedding planner?
And tells me my life is too much and then moves to Atlanta.
Of all the places you could go,
I just thought you choose somewhere that had somebody that you know.
I'm always up too late,
I worry 'bout you there alone.
In that place you call your home,
Warm nights and cold Petrone.
I hope you don't get known for nothing crazy.
Cuz no man ever wants to hear those stories bout his lady.
I know they say the first love is the sweetest.
But that first cut is the deepest.
I tried to keep us together.
You were busy keeping secrets
Secrets you were tellin' everybody but me.
Don't be fooled by the money,
I'm still just young and unlucky.
I'm surprised you couldn't tell.

I was only tryna get ahead. (x2)
But the spotlight makes you nervous.
And you're looking for a purpose.

I was only tryna get ahead. (x2)
But the spotlight makes you nervous.
