Kendrick Lamar - "i" (Live Performance on SNL) lyrics

[Introduction: Woody Harrelson] Ladies and gentlemen! My man, Kendrick Lamar! [Kendrick & Background Vocalists] [?] Thuggin' in the trap Livin' in a groove Watchin' TV [Kendrick] Dedicated to the homies in the pen', hit me! [Intro] I done been through a whole lot Trial, tribulation, but I know God The Devil wanna put me in a bow tie Pray that the holy water don't go dry As I look around me So many motherf**ers wanna down me But an enemigo never drown me In front of a dirty double-mirror they found me [Hook] (I love myself) When you lookin' at me, ahh, tell me what do you see? (I love myself) I put a bullet in the back of the back of the head of the police (I love myself) Illuminated by the hand of God, boy don't be shy (I love myself) One day at a time, uhh [Verse 1] Everybody lookin' at you crazy (Crazy) What you gon' do? (What you gon' do?) Lift up your head and keep moving (Keep moving) Or let the paranoia haunt you? (Haunt you) Peace to fashion police, I wear my heart On my sleeve, let the runway start You know the miserable do love company What do you want from me and my scars? Everybody lack confidence, everybody lack confidence How many times my potential was anonymous? How many times the city making me promises? So I promise this, huh [Hook] [Verse 2] And when they say it's a war outside, bomb in the street Gun in the hood, mob of police Rock on the corner with a line full of fiend And a bottle full of lean and a model on a scheme yup These days of frustration keep y'all on tuck and rotation (Ah man) I duck these cold faces, post up fi-fie-fo-fum basis Dreams of reality's peace Blow steam in the face of the beast Sky could fall down, the wind could cry now The strong in me, I still smile [Hook] [Interlude] Oh man, hey check this out this a real Compton thing goin' on right now. Ya feel what I'm talkin' bout? Ya dig that? Sometimes I just feel a little bit besides myself you know what I'm talkin' bout. This here the return of Enoch and we gonna do it to you like this [Bridge] Walk my bare feet (Walk my bare feet) Down, down valley deep (Down, down valley deep) Fi-fie-fo-fum (Fi-fie-fo-fum) My heart undone (My heart undone) [Original Hook] And I love myself (The world is a ghetto with big guns and picket signs) I love myself (But it can do what it want whenever it want, I don't mind) I love myself (He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide) I love myself (One day at a time, sun gon' shine) [Verse 3] I went to war last night With an automatic weapon, don't nobody call a medic I'ma do it till I get it right War last night I've been dealing with depression, duckin' every other blessin' I can never see the message I could never take the lead, I could never bob and weave Negative letting them annihilate me Evident I'm moving at a meteor speed Finna run into a building, lay my Money in the ceiling lay my body in the street Keep my money in the ceiling, let my mama know I'm free Give my story to the children and a lesson they can read And the glory to the feeling of the holy unseen Seen enough, make a motherf**er scream, "I love myself!" [Original Outro] I lost my head I must've misread what the good book said Oh woes keep me, it's a jungle inside Give myself again 'til the well runs dry [Interlude] YG, CHICKEN WINGS! Ah man, aye, aye homie I told you its a straight up Compton thing ya dig what I'm talkin' bout? And this here is dedicated to the homies. Y'all feel what I'm saying? And sometimes I just get besides myself. The return of the Enoch is back, you hear what I'm talkin' bout? [Verse 4] I've been lookin' for you my whole life, appetite For this feeling I can barely describe, where you reside? In a woman, is it in money, or mankind? Something got me losing my mind Where you at? From the front to the back I'm lookin' for you, I react only when you react I thought I found you back in the ghetto When I was 17 with the .38 Special Maybe you're in a dollar bill, maybe you're not real Maybe only the wealthy get to know how you feel Maybe I'm paranoid, ha, maybe I don't need you anyway Don't lie to me, I'm suicidal anyday I could be your advocate I could speak for you if you tell me what the matter is I could preach for you with the mighty tongue I'm the one, how can I, overcome Negative energy while I give infinitely and survive?!
