Big Sean World Ablaze Lyrics

[Intro: James Fauntleroy]

Stay close to me, so close to me

That’s how it’s supposed to be

Long as you’ve been knowing me

You been holding me down,

I’m sure as fuck, so fuck hopefully

I watch over you, you watch over me

And that’s how it’s supposed to be

And we are, alright

[Hook: James Fauntleroy and Big Sean]

Now, when the world’s ablaze, the stars will fall

The lights go off

Say its going to be, alright

Its going to be, alright

Cause, when the world’s ablaze, the stars will fall

The lights go off

Say its going to be, alright

Its going to be, alright

Just tell me it’ll be, tell me it’ll be

Tell me it’ll be, tell me it’ll be [x3]

[Verse 1: Big Sean]

“Might not make it this time”

Is what not to say at this time

Sometimes, the truth ain’t what you need to hear

And you tell them they alright, when they need a cure

I’mma believe in paradise if I don’t see the sand

Only palm trees I got is this weed off in my hand

Around the same time my mom said “Sean, you need a plan

Mrs. Freeman’s son, across the street got shot,

Now she need a hand!”

Traumatized, gotta watch, his momma cry

Now I gotta look up, up in his momma eyes, tell his momma lies

Like, “It’s gonna be alright,” knowing it ain’t alright

I know there’s just so much pain, and there’s probably more on the way

[Hook]

[Verse 2]

You know I love you momma like she mine,

Whether we together, or we trying

We fuck, three times, we smoke, tree times

We climb, I left, came back in town, it wasn’t in time

The cancer done came, it just hit it’s prime

It came from the breast, just spread to the spine

It might make her blind, she stare at the blinds:

“This can’t be my mom!”

Got me thinking, “whats a girl to do, a girl to do?

When her world’s a pool?

And she comes up for air, and it’s walls of flames

And all the stress is all propane

She’s burned again”

Hoping I could make her smile

Take cancer and David Blaine it out,

POOF! Disappear, God make an out!

[Hook]

[Outro: James Fauntleroy]

Stay close to me, so close to me

That’s how it’s supposed to be

Long as you’ve been knowing me

You been holding me down,

I’m sure as fuck, so fuck hopefully

I watch over you, you watch over me

And that’s how it’s supposed to be

And we are, alright [x3]
