lyrics

Wavy
We gon' keep it wonderful throughout all our endeavors
Nahm sayin'
Through all the trials and tribulations
Nahm sayin'
Yea
You just gotta kick back, relax, and take yo' time
My nigga
Rushin' is only gonna fuck you up in the end
Relax, playa
Yea
Ay

Smooth operator, never playa hatin'
Too much on my plate to not think about paper chasin'
Wherever the money goin', Wave gon' be adjacent
Tend to overwork myself when I feel I'm complacent
Cast them doubts away but they come back ever so often
Put me in the paint but they Mutombo with the blockin'
There was a couple months when I couldn't get locked in
Couldn't fall asleep cuz in my mind, I was lost in
And that's a dangerous place to be
If you fallin' into the abyss of negativity
Brought on by yo'self, know that you yo' own worst enemy
Mainly cuz within the good, the bad be blendin' in
Mane don't let it settle in
Easier to say until it's happenin'
Lookin' at the face of Satan like "damn, nigga, you back again?
Like, can I get a break?"
I don' want to crumble Lord , please don't let me break

Don't overdue yo'self
Take yo' time, my nigga
Don't nobody got it figured
Know you got a blessin'
Gotta keep pressin'
Please don't fall to the stresses
Just take yo' time, my nigga
Everything's gonna be different
All the weight is boutta be lifted

Family to feed, so income gotta be steady
Constant calls from collections keep on hittin' my celly
Job postings say I ain't the candidate they will pursue
Why am I not good enough to make it through?
Now in the sort center, tryna sort my life together
Thinkin' back on life like "I shoulda done better"
Where were these ideas when I had the funds to build?
Why'd I fuck it off on shit that I no longer feel?
Gotta keep pushin', go towards
All the goals I have in life cuz looking back won't move us forward
I try not to bend but life got it's ways to contort ya
Gotta stand tall even when you feel much shorter
Gotta stay solid even when you unstable
God gives his toughest battles to those who are able
Sometimes I wanna give up and say fuck it all
Lord pick me up, please don't let me fall

Don't overdue yo'self
Take yo' time, my nigga
Don't nobody got it figured
Know you got a blessin'
Gotta keep pressin'
Please don't fall to the stresses
Just take yo' time, my nigga
Everything's gonna be different
All the weight is boutta be lifted

You gots to see it through my boy
Just take yo' time, my nigga
Everything's gonna come full circle anytime soon
You just gotta keep yo' faith and keep on goin'
It's a marathon, not a race

Don't overdue yo'self
Take yo' time, my nigga
Don't nobody got it figured
Know you got a blessin'
Gotta keep pressin'
Please don't fall to the stresses
Just take time-time, my nigga
Everything's gonna be different
All the weight is boutta be lifted
