Jay-Z – Fallin' lyrics

(feat. Bilal)

I know I shouldnt've did that
I know its gon' come right back
I know its gon' destroy everything I made
Its probably gon' get ya boy sent away
But this game I play, ain't no way to fix it
Its inevitable that I'm-

Said where I would stop before I even started
When I get to one brick, then The Game I will depart with
Got to one brick then I looked to the sky, said
Sorry God, I lied, but give me one more try
Got to two bricks, new cars, new whips
But niggas never learn til' they end up in the newsclip
The irony of selling drugs is sort of like I'm using it
Guess its two sides to what 'substance abuse' is
Can't stop, won't stop, nigga since new shit
Brand new convertibles, I'm so ruthless
Front row, fight night-see how big my tube is?
Fuck hd, nigga see how clear my view is?
(Falling)
But there's a price for overdoing it
Doin' it this big'll put you on the map
Stick-up kids is out some tax
Plus the fbi Boys with the cameras in the back, damn!

I know I shouldnt've did that
I know its gon' come right back
I know its gon' destroy everything I made
Its probably gon' get ya boy sent away
But this game I play, ain't no way to fix it
Its inevitable -

Now you're
(Falling)
When you should've scaled back,
Now you're
(Falling)
Right into they lap
Falling, they applaud and they screamin' at the screen
"Damn, you fucked up!" like your favorite movie scene
Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, Casino
You seen what that last run did to Deniro
When he can't beat the odds, can't cheat the cards
Can't blow too hard, life's a deck of cards
Now you're tumbling, its humbling, you're falling, you're mumbling
Under your breath like you knew this day was coming
(Falling)
Now let's pray that arm candy
That you left your Ex- for stay 'down' and come in handy
Cause come January, it gets cold
When the letters start to slow, when your commissary's low
When your lawyer screams "Appeal!" only thinkin' bout a bill
When your chances are nil, damn, gravity's ill...

I know I shouldnt've did that
I know its gon' come right back
I know its gon' destroy everything I made
Its probably gon' get ya boy sent away
But this game I play, ain't no way to fix it
Its inevitable-

That you're
(Falling)
And you can't get up
All you do is push-up, pull-up, sit-up
Locked down, the town now belongs to the Squares
Who say they won't make the same mistakes that got you there
And ya arm candy's sweet on 'em
Every woman that you left for this heffa got a college degree comin'
Bad news keeps coming
Hard to keep something on your stomach
You're sick 'bout what your life is becoming
(Falling)
Bunch of used to's, has been's bragging bad 'bout all the new dudes
Talking tough on the YouTube bout what you used to do
But that's old school to the new crew
They're doing numbers like Sudoku
They're the new you
And its damn near inevitable they'll experience deja vu too
Fight, and you'll never survive
Run, and you'll never escape
So just fall from grace, damn....

I know I shouldnt've did that
I know its gon' come right back
I know its gon' destroy everything I made
Its probably gon' get ya boy sent away
But this game I play, ain't no way to fix it
Its inevitable that I'm
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm Falling
Falling
Seems like I'm......
