KOTA The Friend Solar Return Lyrics

[Kota the Friend:]

I been a cynic

Picked up the bottle and I swigged it to no limit

Mama took it from me, did I say that I was finished

I know she prayin’ for my liver

I know she think I’m playing when I say

That I’ma give her everything she sacrificed to raise me

I pop up in your city like a Banksy

I made it 26 graduated from my list, no shackles on my wrist a

Went to battle with the devil, came back with the medal tucked

Clothes burnt fire on my chest, what the fuck is up

I be like nothing much

All these damn years I been fucking up

Showin’ up in court with a button-up

I been on a new wave

On the board like a toupee

CBD, alkaline water over kool-aid

Little Kota tell me he ain’t seen me in like two days

Swear that little boy should be somebody that you thank

I say that cause’ he share me with the world

From Clinton Hill to K-Town, sleeping on a greyhound

Laughing on the Facetime, daddy always make time

See you when I’m back home

See you when I’m back home (See you when I’m back home)

You know I’ma come back (You know I’ma come back)

Don’t you be sad, no (Don’t you be sad, no)

You know I don’t want that (You know I don’t want that)

See you when I’m back home (See you when I’m back home)

You know I’ma come back (You know I’ma come back)

Don’t you be sad, no (Don’t you be sad, no)

You know I don’t want that (You know I don’t want that)

[Saba:]

Uh, yeah

And on to bigger better stuff

From sleeping on the megabus

I had to move around because I knew that it’d be better for us

Metaphors I never taught, without wishin’ I teleport

Telegraph, send a message home from the hotel that I settle for

Said I’m going overseas, I’m feelin’ chosen, prophecy

Life is what you make it, I just made it something I believe

Opportunity a knocked, it’s at the door then I’ma leave

But I’ma be right back, she know she don’t like that

California burn the industry I been on fire

While I was looking for a break, like Ye on through the wire

Tryna convince the fam that one day I want to retire

Right now everything good though, the universe in alignment

I started hiding, all of my hobbies ain’t know about it

Until I had a product I’m proud of to post about it

At any time I doubted my family would allow it

Another year with the sun I’m gracious to go around it, ayy

[Kota the Friend:]

See you when I’m back home (See you when I’m back home)

You know I’ma come back (You know I’ma come back)

Don’t you be sad, no (Don’t you be sad, no)

You know I don’t want that (You know I don’t want that)

See you when I’m back home (See you when I’m back home)

You know I’ma come back (You know I’ma come back)

Don’t you be sad, no (Don’t you be sad, no)

You know I don’t want that (You know I don’t want that)

I went from feeling like I was a burden

To I don’t give a fuck if you don’t like my person

Never catch me begging for attention

Only focused on the people in my section

I appreciate the blessings

Had too many devils in this life

I revel in this life, I don’t settle for this life

I done kept riding with a broken pedal for this life

If you still here I’m happy that he kept you in my life

On the real, I don’t want you here if you don’t really wanna chill

If you ain’t for the better of the squad you can bail

Spit your ass out like it’s Jonah and the whale

Wavin’ to my haters cause’ my boat is setting sail

If I say I love you then that’s where it ends

You don’t gotta have a title just to be my friend

You can have it all, I won’t ask you for a damn thing

Welcome to my table it don’t matter what you can’t bring

I told the labels I’ma do it independent

But I met some good people so I keep the friendship

My son don’t even like me going to the store

He be thinking it’s another tour

See you when I’m back home (See you when I’m back home)

You know I’ma come back (You know I’ma come back)

Don’t you be sad, no (Don’t you be sad, no)

You know I don’t want that (You know I don’t want that)

See you when I’m back home (See you when I’m back home)

You know I’ma come back (You know I’ma come back)

Don’t you be sad, no (Don’t you be sad, no)

You know I don’t want that (You know I don’t want that)
