Drake – Do Not Disturb (Cover)

 

 

 

Smiling though

 

Thoughts running

 

But I’m still standing though

 

City couldn’t break me

 

But I’m weaker though

 

Rejecting invitations

 

To parties thrown

 

Can’t lose focus

 

No net to catch me

 

I burn the ships

 

As I go

 

As I grow

 

I’m learning more about

 

How meaningless

 

My education was years ago

 

Life’s the hardest lesson

 

And there’s no do-overs

 

And my past connections blew over

 

So, I’m over the other side of

 

The world attempting

 

To move over

 

All the difficult obstacles

 

Put in front of me

 

Poor student so

 

Grabbing samples is a part

 

Of my shopping when I

 

Get my groceries

 

Always attempting to

 

Give more of me

 

Cause what’s given

 

Is never viewed

 

As given sufficiently

 

Dig a little deeper

 

‘Til I’m touching my soul

 

Naked vulnerability

 

I’m starting to get cold

 

Need to put on my poker face

 

You won’t see me fold

 

Bold face put on for

 

The kids who want

 

To be me when they’re old

 

So, let the beat go

 

Lose control as the ….

 

As the … Room … Moves ….

 

As the room moves slow

 

Mixed drinks to alter

 

My mood and let me move slow …

 

Sway as the beat rocks

 

Plain as rock compared

 

To the flashy peacocks

 

Maybe because I’ve put

 

My flashiness aside

 

Dealing with problems

 

That the lights cannot hide

 

Only find refuge when

 

I go inside

 

Excuse me for a moment

 

I just need to clear my thoughts

 

With a quick walk outside
