G-Eazy - Running lyrics

[Intro: Gabriel Garzón-Montano] Keep on keep running Running and running Keep on keep running [Verse 1] And listen up, I'm from that Bay, (Yee!) Where slang originates, don't even know what cats say '06 I remember back in that day A rubber band around a broken CD player slapping Mac Dre And back then it was Girbauds wearing bigger clothes The bay was popping, Keak da Sneak had different flows And when '07 came, the hyphy movement's window closed Hearts broke but f** it, that's the way this business goes But Uncle 40 Water kept it going 25 years in the game and he's still making choices Then I moved to New Orleans where they shucking oysters Everybody speak in southern voices Home sick, I felt like this was pointless Culture shock, like what's going on Had me feeling like I don't belong My bro said "Look, this music's all that you should focus on" They'll understand you soon, it won't be long [Hook: G-Eazy and Gabriel Garzón-Montano] Nobody's perfect, yeah we act a fool Imma keep on running, nothing's new Guess I'll keep doing what I naturally do I'll always keep on running back to you Yeah, they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same So Imma always play the game Yeah, so if I lose today, then I'm not ashamed Cause times are gonna change [Verse 2] Skipping school, blowing blunts in the parking lot Back in those days, used to spark a lot Far fetched dreams we would talk about Making it in rap, tryna start a plot Tryna crack the code, how a star gets hot But from where we standing, that's the farthest spot Ash the blunt and mob cause the cops love to bark a lot Always finding trouble, it don't matter if it's dark or not Scrapping after school cause they love to test you Just to see if you're a narc or not And I remember what did move me Is I was in juvie, never giving f**s, acting unruly Being away from making music, I understood it then truly And what it did to me Ankle monitor for 6 months I couldn't go outside, this sh** s**s Independent study, went to school just once a week And spent every single other day home making beats That's how it happened [Hook: G-Eazy and Gabriel Garzón-Montano] Nobody's perfect, yeah we act a fool Imma keep on running, nothing's new Guess I'll keep doing what I naturally do I'll always keep on running back to you Yeah, they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same So Imma always play the game Yeah, so if I lose today, then I'm not ashamed Cause times are gonna change [Verse 3] Since curfews and cartoons, its been the same team Just a few youngsters growing up who had the same dream Moved away when I was 18 But Marty though, he had the car, he had the girls So he just stayed put in the same scene And I was jealous, in my eyes he had it Living solo, had his hustle, spent his free time rapping He said this sh** ain't all that nice and that's what you forgetting Promised if either of us makes it I'll come back and get them Finally got a pop so hes coming on the road And while we're touring everything is gold When its finished then its back to work to grill food I know you hate that 9 to 5, I know it k**s you Just know I feel you I'm trying to fix sh** up I'm trying to make it so we all can chill and live it up I'm throwing parties and my day ones right here in the cut Yeah, that's the least bro you've been in my corner since the jump [Hook: G-Eazy and Gabriel Garzón-Montano] Nobody's perfect, yeah we act a fool Imma keep on running, nothing's new Guess I'll keep doing what I naturally do I'll always keep on running back to you Yeah, they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same So Imma always play the game Yeah, so if I lose today, then I'm not ashamed Cause times are gonna change
