J. Cole - c l o s e lyrics

Yeah Close Ville-matic, one, one One, one, one-two, one One-two, one, one-two, one One-two, one, one, listen Close, I stare at my dreams as they approach Gotta be patient and trust in God, He the coach Temptations are taking a shortcut, but I don't 'Cause I ain't tryna be a almost, when I get it, I'ma float Gone are the days we was close Now when I see you, I look at you just like a ghost A shell of your former self, so caught up with that dope Two ni**as singin' two different notes and you know I gotta coast Nothin' but a dollar and some hope Up in NY, but damn, what hurts me the most You was a good ni**a, we knew each other's folks Now you gotta ride around with the toast and you keep that sh*t close 'Cause ni**as plottin' on you since you chose To roll around with the candy paint on spokes You know 'Ville ni**as don't like it when you boast You know twelve be takin' notes and they watchin' you close But maybe you don't see 'em 'cause the smoke Cloudin' your vision from every cigar that you toke Plus the lean you sippin' which started as a joke Got you now fiendin' for your next dose, meanwhile I'm so close Don't even give a fu*k that I'm broke 'Cause in my mind I'm rich with sh*t I done wrote Therefore I'm convinced that this is supposed to happen And in time I'ma blow, they gon' label me the GOAT How long has it been since we spoke? Last night I jumped up from my sleep, I was soaked Call it a nightmare, the scene that awoke me Involved you and ni**as I ain't know, they was creepin' up close I saw the heat tucked in they coats You didn't notice 'cause you was busy countin' dough I tried to yell, but nothin' came out of my throat ni**as co*ked back the hammers and you froze, in your eyes I saw hope Hope of a better way to cope with the pain And the scars, than the lean and the coke And I swear in that moment I wish we were still close Maybe I could've saved you, but no, trigger squeeze, gun smoke I open up my eyes with a jolt Heart pumpin' like Usain Bolt Reached for my phone, missed calls and a text message note From my mama sayin' you just got smoked, damn, this life is no joke Close fu*k
