KOTA The Friend Customs Lyrics

Hey love

You came a long way from

Sitting in train stations

Staring at strange faces

Eat good food, drink good drink

I walk around acting like my shit don’t stink

Seen bad days, seen bad weeks

I done mad wrong, tryna make my peace

I been real low, I been real high

Used to hit the lab making beats till 5

In the morning

And recording by the time it turned 6

Feeling sick but I know I’m finna get my shine

And this shit here, this all me

If I’m gon’ fail it’s gon’ be on me

And niggas always gonna try to throw you mad shade

So fuck it then I might as well be under palm trees

In the Caribbean cruising on the calm seas

With a couple bad bitches looking at me raunchy

Got my lady on my side, and that ass on me

We be riding through the city till the gas on “E”

Hey love

You came a long way from

Sitting in train stations

Staring at strange faces

I’m a simple man

Gone fishing on a lake, in a distant land

And I don’t really care for the lavish life

I turn up in the crib, that’s the facts of life

I’m just me

My name Kota, no acronym

No synonym and no antonym

There were so many before him

And there will be even more after him

I’m just a drop in a bucket, I know

I’m on a roof, sipping on 100 proof

Used to eat oodles and noodles

And leave out with holes in my shoes

Sad because I wasn’t cool

But thank you to all of the kids

That told me I couldn’t play ball

‘Cause I ain’t have Jordan’s, I had to conform

So people would love me

But now I’m in some other country where everyone love me

So ooh!

Hey love

You came a long way from

Sitting in train stations

Staring at strange faces

Oh you always think somebody owe you

Looking for the handout, mad when they zoe you

Claim that you real when you fake like tofu

Niggas like you always seem to stay local

Young niggas mad emo and mad vocal

But I understand if you tell me it’s the old you

Imma drop gems like I’m Avatar Roku

So listen up close if nobody ever told you

You gotta earn your stripes

You gotta build up the nerve to fight

You gotta work the nights and think smart

Homie learn this life in cold weather when it hurts to bite

You gotta push through

And you can flex when your funds is official

For now you get sonned like you Malcolm in the Middle

And if you got a issue get yo head up in the game

Drop bombs on them dudes waving guns against you, uhh

Hey love

You came a long way from

Sitting in train stations

Staring at strange faces

Hey love

You came a long way from

Sitting in train stations

Staring at strange faces
