Big Sean Bigger Than Me Lyrics

[Big Sean:]

Do or die

Look, all I wanna do is make the city proud, yeah

Wishing all the OGs could see me now, no, yeah

And when you feel something you can’t see

But you know it’s meant to be

You gonna realize that this is bigger than me yeah

Bigger than me, bigger than me

When the whole family depend on you to eat

That night you can’t sleep

You gonna realize that this is bigger than me

Get it, get it, get it

I pray that you get it even if I can’t get it with cha

I pray to God you never let the little things in life distract you from the bigger picture

Everybody in the city to me like a distant cousin, brother, little sister

I see myself in the young ones

When I look in their eyes it feel like a mirror

Corleone all on my own (Don)

Cartier all on my arm

All I hear is sirens and car alarms

Niggas going to war with no armor on

First time I seen a dead body I was 14

And I felt the pressure

Like if I don’t get it, might end up next to him

I’ma take the dice and I’ma roll a 7

Seven, seven, seven, 7-11 it’s 911 getting called around

The hood America’s lost and found

Where niggas get lost and never found

All I ever wanted was to turn these Gs into Ms and Mercedes keys

Got it and still felt incomplete

That’s when I realized this shit was bigger than me

[Big Sean & Flint Chozen Choir:]

Bigger than me

When the whole town on their feet

And they all waiting on you to speak

That’s when you realize that this is bigger than me

All I wanna do is make the city proud, yeah

Wishing all the OGs could see me now, now, now, yeah

Ohhh ya ya yeah

Ohhh ya ya yeah

You gon’ realize that this was bigger than me

[Starrah:]

Used to want that foreign

Got that foreign, now it’s boring

Started touring

Swear to God that’s when I realized this shit was bigger than me

Flash on niggas with the Rollie

Got that Rollie with the shine

But lost my time

That’s when I realized this shit was bigger than me

[Big Sean:]

I seen people in the same place 10 years later

Man that shit pathetic

God talking to me telepathic like it only happen if you let it

I can’t spend my whole life looking at the same ceiling fan

When I feel like I ain’t got no ceilings man

If I ain’t special I’ll feel it then

I gotta get on the road

I gotta be the one chose

I gotta come back and tell the greatest story they never told

This must be the feeling that you get when you know you close

And you know it’s a way in even when the doors are closed

And realize this shit is bigger than me yeah

[Big Sean & Flint Chozen Choir:]

Bigger than me

When the whole town on their feet

And they all waiting on you to speak

That’s when you realize that this is bigger than me

All I wanna do is make the city proud, yeah

Wishing all the OGs could see me now, now, now, yeah

Ohhh ya ya yeah

Ohhh ya ya yeah

Ohhh ya ya yeah

Ohhh ya ya ya ya ya ya ya yeah

Ohhh ya ya ya ya ya ya ya yeah

Ohhh ya ya ya ya ya ya ya yeah

[Myra Anderson:] Well no matter what, I’m proud of you. Even when you do stupid things that I have warned you about. You must get that from your daddy. I’m just kidding, you know I love you. You listening?

[Big Sean:] Yeah yeah, I’m listening. I love you too.

[Myra Anderson:] In a way I feel like I’m living through you. Sometimes it feels like I got another chance at everything.

[Big Sean:] That’s deep to feel like that. I kinda feel the same way though sometimes.

[Myra Anderson:] Yeah.

[Big Sean:] With all the work that’s goin’ on I feel like this is like my second time doin’ it So I know that sound crazy but, you know I just I don’t know why I always imagine myself as like someone who failed at everything he ever did at life you know and I got to the end of life and just regretted it all and somehow, this is my chance to go back and get it all right. And when I wake up with that, I might say, you know it completely changes my hunger, how I approach the whole day. I mean you decide to live your life like that then pshh man I guarantee we’ll live life to our best potential. It’s that simple? It’s all about living in the moment. Period.
