Jesse Rutherford – Beat Still Runs lyrics
Uh, yeah
It's just me
For real though

[Verse 1]
Look, I knew a car would be dope
But I'm broke, I admit it
I couldn’t afford a four door Accord or a Civic
I'm sorta ballistic
Payed a lot but lord must've missed it
He always forgives me so I guess I forgive him
I got visions of spitting bitching verses and bridges
So I study to be the richest, slutty video vixens
I'm cool like cat making pimping decisions
And I practice what I preach
Start working, stop wishing
So I work for respect and a Porche for my sister
Let the last [?]
In order to [?]
You've got to put [?]
Whatever, however I can get to the top
It's gonna be a struggle, I don't have the option to stop
Stuck in this bubble but it's just not an option to pop
Put records out for free every time that they drop
'Cause if I sold them they would probably flop
And it's not 'cause I don't rock
It's 'cause it's easy to cop
When at the top of your favourite inter-internet blog
With a bunch of those DJ's and [?]
I'm just trying to get into every internet spot
You call me Wi-Fi
How I connect with the beat
And I'm the fliest white guy to connect and compete
A wreck when I sleep
I only close my eyes when I have to
This is the beginning
I am really not even happy
I had to job to be responsible
But that's 'cause I had to
Now I quit and I spit all-day rap-raps
"What a crazy fucking nut!" You can call me cashew
You go to college but I've got goals to surpass you
Life in the classroom was never promising for James
Jesse was messy and always had something to say
Took my drum sticks out, teachers said to put them away
Hid them right under my desk and continued to play
It was obvious to everybody young-ass age
That I was born to be up on the big-ass stage
Bigger than my ears were when they were gauged
Bigger than when [?] was the brand new phase
Yo, that was dope but I'm figuring out brand new ways
To be me and spread myself across the world like AIDS
I don't sleep at night, other rappers, twiddle your thumbs
Even when I catch my breath, yeah, the beat still runs like

Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh

[Verse 2]
I'm so determined that it's sick, I disgust myself
Sometimes I sit in bed and dream how I discuss myself
Up an interview saying how I just trust myself
Only I can tell the truth to me and fuck all else
Look, truthfully I fuck myself
Hanging out and giving trust until I've hung myself
Too many times I've let them tug my belt
So I'll buckle down and fight back and run like hell
Turn around and look back at what I've dug myself
Into with all these issues way above myself
I'm in a ditch all alone and I don't want no help
All I need is time to love myself
I hope you know, that I'm only having fun, right?
Picturing myself silhouetted in the sunlight
With a pretty little lady in a sundress
Might take her home in thirty minutes, get her undressed
Look, nonetheless
I am always learning
Truth heals all my wounds but it's also hurting
I am only human but I am hardly person
I feel stupid not saying that I am hardly working
I believe that I used more brain than average
Think that I'm a genius, man, you think that I'm a master
Think that I am quick and I ask to be faster
My thoughts always mix, my songs always master
Been thinking so much about thinking so much lately
Thinking so much that I don't give a fuck daily
When I wake up I tell myself that I need to go
And I hate waking up every day alone
My body is a house but my mind is never home
I think love is all I know
Love is all I am
Love is all I need
Love is in the air
So love is what I'm gassed with
The love I've got inside of me
Ain't nothing that I've asked for
Learned it growing up and "You can never go to class 4"
Love is what I breath
Love is on me
Uh, and I'm loving just humming on this beat
I said, love is what I breath
Love is on me
And I'm loving just humming on this beat

[Extended Hook]
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
Love is on me, love is on me
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
Love is on me, love is on me
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
Love is on me, love is on me, love is all I have
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
(That's all we have)
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
(Sorry if you don't feel it)
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-duh
