J Cole – Stay lyrics


You could drop a red floor sign down for the tears
God and my court date, the 2 things I fear
Man, they tryna give a nigga years
I’m tryna figure if I should even appear
Or should I escape town?
Catch a greyhound
Change my name right, catch a plane flight
Out the country, let the motherfuckers hunt me
Come catch me if you want me, you they’d lock me if I stayed
But where I’mma run to?
I got a good girl, we got a son too
And all we went through, we ain’t see eye to eye
But what you told me way back?
You was a ride or die
So if they give me one or if they give me 2
Or if a nigga gotta sit down and do a few
Before I go baby, I gotta know what would you do
Would you find someone new or would you stay?
Like the hoes when they lay with me
Puppy eyes when I go, sayin stay with me
Oh girl you bad as hell, and yea I love to
But see I got a girl I’m really making love to
Therefore I’m feeling like more guilty when I rub you
That’s why I skip all of that kissing when I fuck you
Flush a condom down the toilet then I escape
I had you but you can’t have me
I never stay

Yea, that’s the one

Hah, life in the hometown
‘Fore I could take a step, I’m getting grown now
And start to notice that I see the same hoes round
Guess they had to go round
My raps is profound
I got the flows but yet a nigga ain’t got no sound
Cop the beat machine, I’m cooking up my own now
Got my mind on the city where it goes down
See if I’mma get the wet I’m going then I can’t stay
Although I love it here
I’ll be damned if is sit around another year
Dreaming dreams, hoping somehow that they just appear
The hardest part of leaving is to now my mother here
Oh but I’m coming back, oh boy believe that
And show the little niggas, boy you can achieve that
Got the city on my shoulders, piggyback
Hello, my name is Cole and I’m here to stay
