As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have a ton of friends & more important to have real ones
Sat beside me, used to laugh, had mad jokes
The teacher always got mad so we passed notes
It started off so innocent
She had a vibe and a n*gga started diggin’ it
I was a youngin’ straight crushin’ tryna play this sh*t cool
But a n*gga couldn’t wait to get to school
I hope one day you hear me
Always gon’ be a bigger house somewhere, but n*gg* feel me
Long as the people in that motherf*ck*r love you dearly
Always gon’ be a whip that’s better than the one you got
Always gon’ be some clothes that’s fresher than the ones you rock
Always gon’ be a b*tch that’s badder out there on the tours
But you ain’t never gon’ be hapy till you love yours — J. Cole, “Love Yourz"
