[Intro: Hannah Williams]
Do I find it so hard
When I know in my heart
I’m letting you down every day
Letting you down every day
Why do I keep on running away?

[Verse 1: JAY-Z]
Look, I apologize, often womanize
Took for my child to be born
See through a woman’s eyes
Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles
Took me too long for this song
I don’t deserve you
I harass you out in Paris
"Please come back to Rome," you make it home
We talked for hours when you were on tour
“Please pick up the phone, pick up the phone”
I said, “Don’t embarrass me,” instead of “Be mine”
That was my proposal for us to go steady
That was your 21st birthday
You mature faster than me, I wasn’t ready
So I apologize
I seen the innocence leave your eyes
I still mourn this death and
I apologize for all the stillborns
‘Cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it
I apologize to all the women whom I
Toyed with your emotions because I was emotionless
And I apologize ’cause at your best you are love
And because I fall short of what I say I’m all about
Your eyes leave with the soul that your body once housed
And you stare blankly into space
Thinkin’ of all the time, you wasted it on all this basic shit
So I apologize

[Chorus: Hannah Williams]
I’m never gonna treat you
I’m never gonna treat you like I should

[Verse 2: JAY-Z]
I apologize
Our love was one for the ages and I contained us
And all this ratchet shit and we more expansive
Not meant to cry and die alone in these mansions
Or sleep with our back turned
We supposed to vacay ’til our backs burn
We’re supposed to laugh ’til our heart stops
And then meet in a space where the dark stop
And let love light the way
Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face
I never wanted another woman to know
Something about me that you didn’t know
I promised, I cried, I couldn’t hold
I suck at love, I think I need a do-over
I will be emotionally available if I invited you over
I stew over, what if you over my shit?

[Chorus: Hannah Williams]
I’m never gonna treat you
I’m never gonna treat you like I should

[Verse 3: JAY-Z]
And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do
If they ain’t look at me the same
I would prob’ly die with all the shame
"You did what with who?"
What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate?
"You risked that for Blue?"
If I wasn’t a superhero in your face
My heart breaks for the day I have to explain my mistakes
And the mask goes away, and Santa Claus is fake
And you go online and see
For Blue’s tooth, the tooth fairy didn’t pay

[Chorus: Hannah Williams]
I’m never gonna treat you like I should

[Chorus]
You don’t seem to understand me when I say I’m feeling blu love
Blu love
When you touch me in that way, I just don’t know what to do, love
I’m so in love

[Verse 1]
I can’t get you out my mind
You send me pictures
I ain’t calling crisis
You send the pictures

[Chorus]
You don’t seem to understand me when I say I’m feeling blu love
Blu love
When you touch me in that way, I just don’t know what to do, love
I’m so in love

[Verse 2]
If your harp is charged and loaded
Wait for time to come
It might take you to Rome
It’s all about religion
It’s all about constructing the chemical reliance on

[Chorus]
You don’t seem to understand me when I say I’m feeling blu love
Blu love
When you touch me in that way, I just don’t know what to do, love
I’m so in love

[Verse 1]
Parading to the masses
We’re coming so fresh to death
I’ve been stealing looks from shadows
You conjure with your purse
Yeah you’re walking in stilettos
But your nose is bleeding out
I’ve been running from the devil
But the devil’s on my back
I’m decreasing
Took a leave of absence from the war
If the wall is coming down
Then we got to press the pedal
Got my hands up in the air
I’m saying I can’t breathe
I got my hands up in the air
I’m saying

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey man get away from me
Yeah, hey man get away from me

[Chorus]
Never asked for any favors
Nothing I want from you
I’ve been looking for an answer
To keep me from falling through
And I’m waiting for the voice to speak
Cause I can’t see
I hope we’ll hear the sound eventually

[Verse 3]
I felt their claws obstruct and refuse
Refugees in the new Rome
They’ve locked our voices in the oven
Like Sylvia at home
My eyes are on the world
My hands are anxious
To feel something real
True colors tend to glisten
And then reveal
Where’s the love?
And why are we so far from love?

[Verse 4]
Chased by badgers, ducking lights
Push the dagger when it’s right
Martial law, inshallah
Mi casa es tuya
Ghosting like I’m Daniel Johnston
And I’m locked up in the basement
Where Satan lies in satin tweets
And realigns his face lift
The criminals are laughing with
Their empty, toothless faces
We’ve melted all our gold
To recommence our idol worship
We all pretend one day
We’ll be the greatest of the Gatsby’s
Growling mouths with rabies
And loyal like Sid & Nancy

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey man get away from me
You pretend you got control
Hey man get away from me

[Chorus]
I never asked for any favors
Nothing I want from you
Well I’ve been praying for an answer
To keep me from falling through
Yeah I’m waiting for the voice to speak
Because I can’t see
We’ll hear the sound eventually
We’ll hear the sound
We’ll hear the sound eventually

Do I find it so hard
When I know in my heart
I’m letting you down everyday
Letting you down everyday
Why do I keep on running away

Look, I apologize, often womanize
Took for my child to be born
See through a woman’s eyes
Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles
Took me too long for this song
I don’t deserve you, I harass you out in Paris
Please come back to Rome, you make it home
We talked for hours when you were on tour
Please pick up the phone, pick up the phone
Said don’t embarrass me instead of be mine
That was my proposal for us to go steady
That was your 21st birthday, you mature faster than me
I wasn’t ready, so I apologize
I’ve seen the innocence leave your eyes
I still mourn this death, I apologize for all the stillborns
‘Cause I wasn’t pressing, your body wouldn’t accept it
I apologize to all the woman whom I
Toyed with you emotions because I was emotionless
I apologize ’cause at your best you are love
And because I fall short of what I say I’m all about
Your eyes leave with the soul that your body once housed
And you stare blankly into space
Thinking of all the time you wasted in on all this basic shit
So I apologize

I’m never gonna treat you, never gonna treat you like I should

I apologize, our love was one for the ages and I contained us
And all this ratchet shit and we more expansive now
Meant to cry and die alone in these mansions
Or sleep with our back turned
We’re supposed to vacay ’til our backs burn
We’re supposed to laugh ’til our heart stops
And then we end a space with a dark stop
And let love light the way
Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face
I never wanted another woman to know
Something about me that you didn’t know
I promised I cried I couldn’t hold
I suck at love, I think I need a do-over
I will be emotionally available if I invited you over
I stew over what if you over my shit?

I’m never gonna treat you, never gonna treat you like I should

And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do
If they ain’t look at me the same
I would prolly die with all the shame
“You did what with who?”
What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate?
“You risked that for Blue?”
If I wasn’t a superhero in your face
My heart breaks for the day I had to explain my mistakes
And the mask goes away and Santa Claus is fake
And you go online and see
For Blue’s tooth, the tooth fairy didn’t pay

I’m never gonna treat you like I should

[Verse 1]
When the lights go dim
Everything around us begins
All the people run to get a piece of the sin
Everybody wanna be the star of the spin
And the city’s full of folks that are in it just to win
Bones break fast on the chain, let em know
In deep thoughts, not today, let it go
Little boy blue, where the hell is your dough?
Look at everybody else in the same choke-hold
This is space age
One night in the face paint
Why would anybody wanna leave they home?
Anybody in their right mind ’bout to see the fine line
I don’t really think that they should, bro
This world here, is encased in gold
All of us are chasin’ it slow
It’s been years in the fears of the people in this place
I’ve been keeping all of them in control

[Prehook]
(They been on the run)
Button’s getting pushed for fun, you don’t need air in your lungs
(Take a little rum)
Bet it feels nice and numb livin’ underneath my thumb
(Get it in, get it done)
They been in the minds of the young to make it feel like you ain’t sprung
(Hand over the guns)
It’s the new world, my son, where everybody is like one
Here they come

[Hook]
All around me
I feel like I’ve been surrounded by, cornered by, infected by
Taken over by the clones, clones, clones
In a world full of clones, clones, clones
Nobody is safe from the clones, clones, clones
You better run from the clones, clones, clones

[Verse 2]
When in Rome, you should probably just do it as the Romans did
Slaughtering the heathens on stage
Sneaking death into the city on some Trojan shit
Now who wanna get murdered today?
Got an ax pack for the fuck of it, swinging Jim Duggan shit
Cutting through the people that ain’t fittin’ for the mothership
Hundred million sheeple in the same damn covenant
Facebook live the event, and now you doublin’
All across the globe we can feel this now
Everybody’s thinkin’ the same
If you feel any different would you please sit down
This thing here ain’t a game
If they wanna come in and control the crowd
I know what they chancin’ to say
Everybody listen to this here loud
This is your chance for the fame

[Prehook]
(They been on the run)
Button’s getting pushed for fun, you don’t need air in your lungs
(Take a little rum)
Bet it feels nice and numb livin’ underneath my thumb
(Get it in, get it done)
They been in the minds of the young to make it feel like you ain’t sprung
(Hand over the guns)
It’s the new world, my son, where everybody is like one
Here they come

[Hook]
All around me
I feel like I’ve been surrounded by, cornered by, infected by
Taken over by the clones, clones, clones
In a world full of clones, clones, clones
Nobody is safe from the clones, clones, clones
You better run from the clones, clones, clones

[Outro]
When you least expect them
They’re there, everywhere

In deep thoughts, not today, let it go

Look at everybody else in the same choke-hold

Pilate:
And so the king is once again my guest
And why is this? Was Herod unimpressed?

Caiaphas:
We turn to Rome to sentence Nazareth
We have no law to put a man to death
We need him crucified – it’s all you have to do
We need him crucified – it’s all you have to do

Pilate:
Talk to me Jesus Christ
You’ve been brought here – manacled, beaten
By your own people – do you have the first idea
Why you deserve it?
Listen king of the Jews
Where is your kingdom?
Look at me – am I a Jew?

Jesus:
I have got no kingdom in this world –
I’m through, through, through

Mob:
Talk to me Jesus Christ

Jesus:
There may be a kingdom for me somewhere – if I only knew

Pilate:
Then you’re a king?

Jesus:
It’s you who say I am
I look for truth and find that I get damned

Pilate:
But what is truth? Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truths – are mine the same as yours?

Mob:
Crucify him!

Pilate:
What do you mean? You’d crucify your king?

Mob:
We have no king but Caesar!

Pilate:
He’s done no wrong – no not the slightest thing

Mob:
We have no king but Caesar! Crusify him!

Pilate:
I see no reason – I find no evil
This man is harmless so why does he upset you?
He’s just misguided – thinks he’s important
But to keep you vultures happy I shall flog him

Mob:
Crucify him!

Pilate:
Where are you from Jesus? What do you want Jesus? Tell me
You’ve got to be careful – you could be dead soon –
Could well be
Why do you not speak when I have your life in my hands?
How can you stay quiet? I don’t believe you understand

Jesus:
You have nothing in your hands
Any power you have comes to you from far beyond
Everything is fixed and you can’t change it

Pilate:
You’re a fool Jesus Christ – how can I help you?

Mob:
Pilate! Crucify him!
Remember Caesar – you have a duty
To keep the peace so crucify him!
Remember Caesar – you’ll be demoted, you’ll be deported
Crucify him!

Pilate:
Don’t let me stop your great self destruction
Die if you want to you misguided martyr
I wash my hands of your demolition
Die if you want to you innocent puppet!

I wanna kiss you in Paris
I wanna hold your hand in Rome
I wanna run naked in a rainstorm
Make love in a train cross-country
You put this in me, so now what, so now what?

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love

I want to know you, not like that
I don’t wanna be your mother
I don’t wanna be your sister either
I just wanna be your lover
I wanna be your baby, kiss me, that’s right, kiss me

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
Yearning, burning
For you to justify my love

What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
Talk to me, tell me your dreams, am I in them?
Tell me your fears, are you scared?
Tell me your stories, I’m not afraid of who you are, we can fly

Poor is the man whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that’s right, love me
I wanna be your baby, yeah

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
I’m open and ready
For you to justify my love

To justify my love
Wanting, to justify
Waiting, to justify my love
Praying, to justify
To justify my love
I’m open, to justify my love

Allelu, allelu:
I have died happy
And lived to tell the tale to you
I have slept for forty years
And woke to find me gone
I woke safe and warm in your arms
In your arms, your arms
In your arms

Not informed of the natural law
Squatting, lordly, on a stool, in a stall
We spun gold clear out of straw
And, when our bales of bullion
Were stored
You burned me like a barn
I burned safe and warm in your arms
In your arms, your arms

I’m afraid of the Big Return
There’s a certain conversation lost
And that loss incurred
With nobody remaining
To register who had passed this way
In the night
In the middle of the night
(negating their grace and their sight)
Till only I remember, or mark
How we had our talk:

We took our ride
So that there was no-one home
And the lights of Rome
Flickered and died
And, what’s more
I believe that you knew it, too;
I think you saw their flares
And kept me safely unawares
In your arms
Your arms, in your arms

The grass was tall, and strung with burrs
I essayed that high sashay which
In my mind, was my way;
You hung behind, in yours
Anyhow, she did not neigh
I do not know
What drew our eyes to hers;
That little black mare did not stir
Till I lay down in your arms

Poor old dirty little dog-size horse! —
Swaying and wheezing
As a matter of course;
Swaying and wheezing
As a matter of pride
That poor old nag, not four palms wide
Had waited a long time
Coated in salt
Buckled like a ship run foul of the fence
And in the middle of the night
She’d sprung up
No provenance
Bearing the whites of her eyes

And you, with your
‘arrangement’ with Fate
Nodded sadly at her lame assault
On that steady old gate
Her faultlessly etiolated fishbelly-face;
The muzzle of a ghost

And, pretty Johnny Appleseed
Via satellite feed
Tell us, who was it
That you then loved the most?
Pretty Johnny Appleseed
Leave a trail that leads
Straight back down to the farm
Lay me down
Safe and warm in your arms
In your arms

[Verse 1: Fat Joe]
You should leave the house for a moment
Lately I can’t help but to notice
That he don’t acknowledge you
Nah, he don’t be out with you
I get it, I get it, where I’m from we on that bullshit
Yeah you love that bullshit
Real shit, I can’t even lie to you
But you gotta ball for me
You said you’ve got friends, I said [?] for me
I’m out of time, you know it gets hard for me
I gotta respond, the money keep calling me
You know it be calling me

[Chorus: The-Dream]
Now I can’t prove my love
Heartbreak 101
And you stay here in my arms until the song’s done
They say nothing lasts forever, but forever’s always wrong
Now we’re in that moment where you wanna do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na

[Verse 2: Remy Ma]
Come boy, you know that I’m wit it
Yeah, anything you want, you know that I’ll get it
Cuz I’ma get it girl, you get it boy
I’m a city girl, let’s leave the country for a minute
Let’s go, pack up the bags now
Let’s go to Tokyo
Let’s go to Paris, yeah
Let’s go to Rome
I’m so all insecure, I can’t contain it now
His love good, but your love’s the best
And it only gets better so let’s not forget
Want me out of my clothes and turn the lights down
I wanna give it to you, I’m talking right now
Do you got a pillow, I need to bite down
I ain’t ready to go, I’m [?]
You know I know that you wanna give me your love now
And I know you know that I wanna give it back

[Chorus: The-Dream]
Now I can’t prove my love
Heartbreak 101
At least stay here in my arms until the song’s done
They say nothing lasts forever, but forever’s always wrong
Now we’re in that moment where you wanna do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na

[Bridge: Fat Joe]
We at the Pablo show in the Kardashian row
With the Kardashians sipping the Kardashian show
We at the Pablo show, minks down to the floor
Got six bad bitches in the back of the row
We at the Pablo show
We at the Pablo show
The father’s back

[Chorus: The-Dream]
Now I can’t prove my love
Heartbreak 101
At least stay here in my arms until the song’s done
They say nothing lasts forever, but forever’s always wrong
Now we’re in that moment where you wanna do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na
Do anything but go home
Na na na na

[Outro: The-Dream]
I wanna be with you baby, I wanna
That’s why I’m tryna leave with you, baby
See I wanna be with you, baby
That’s why I’m tryna leave with you, baby
I wanna be with you, baby
That’s why I’m tryna leave with you, baby
I wanna be with you, baby
That’s why I’m tryna leave with you, baby

Tu ne pourras rien me cacher
Je n’ai pas besoin d’être médium
Mais dis toujours la vérité
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Je ne pourrai pas te soigner
Ne me prends pour un sérum
Mais n’aie pas peur d’être blessé
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Tu prendras rien pour acquis
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Je te donnerai toute ma vie
Et tu aimeras ce que nous sommes
Et la femme que je suis
N’y va pas par quatre chemins
Je ne mène pas à Rome
Mais ne craint d’aller trop loin
Si Tu Es Un Homme
N’essaie pas de m’impressionner
Je me passerai du décorum
Mais n’aie pas peur de pleurer
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Tu prendras rien pour acquis
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Je te donnerai toute ma vie
Et tu aimeras ce que nous sommes
Et la femme que je suis
Ne cherche jamais à me plaire
Je ne chanterai pas ton te deum
Mais ne fais jamais semblant de faire
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Tu pourras vouloir me quitter
Mais à défaut d’un erratum
Tu auras le droit de te tromper
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Tu prendras rien pour acquis
Si Tu Es Un Homme
Je te donnerai toute ma vie
Et tu aimeras ce que nous sommes
Et la femme que je suis

In the shadows of tall buildings
Of fallen angels on the ceilings
Oily feathers in bronze and concrete
Faded colors, pieces left incomplete
The line moves slowly past the electric fence
Across the borders between the continents

In the cathedrals of New York and Rome
There is a feeling that you should just go home
And spend a lifetime finding out just where that is

In the shadows of tall buildings
The architecture is slowly peeling
Marble statues and glass dividers
Someone is watching all of the outsiders
The line moves slowly through the numbered gate
Past the mosaic of the head of state

In the cathedrals of New York and Rome
There is a feeling that you should just go home
And spend a lifetime finding out just where that is

In the shadows of tall buildings
Of open arches endlessly kneeling
Sonic landscapes echoing vistas
Someone is listening from a safe distance
The line moves slowly into a fading light
A final moment in the dead of night

In the cathedrals of New York and Rome
There is a feeling that you should just go home
And spend a lifetime finding out just where that is

In the cathedrals of New York and Rome
There is a feeling that you should just go home
And spend a lifetime finding out just where that is

‘Cause baby it’s time we let down on the ride
Running from the city
Running from its crimes

Sleeping on the streets of Rome
[?] to pass the time
We could seal our faiths alone
We could deal, oh, baby it’s time to lose our vicious pride
‘Cause we can’t run, there’s nowhere else to hide

They said we’d never get too far
Just fugitives on the runaway
Now with all the passing cars

Now with all the skies [?]

Baby, it’s time we lose our vicious pride
Running from the city
Running from its crimes

Baby, it’s time we let down on the ride
Running from the city
Running from its crimes

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gray
The glory that was Rome is of another day
I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I’m going home to my city by the Bay
I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care
My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me

Ice Age or a heat wave
Earthquake or a plague
Terrorism or class warfare
Or the end of days
I asked mama, but she didn’t know
Dad just shook his head
Put a couple ice cubes in his whiskey, sipped it, and went to bed
Can I just pray to God to give me those Vegas odds
I ask on behalf of a friend
Should I buy my folks a round
Or dig my cash in the ground
I’m starting to think it’s the end

I know, I know we’ll live for a thousand years
What’s in your crystal ball
Tell me, tell me oh where do we go from here
Rome is too big to fall

Other night I was riding on a C train
Packed car, bad mood
When this peabrain drunk-ass slicked back hair, having, leather-jacket wearing ass Roger Klotz grease stain dude stumbles through the train mad rude shoving a finger in our grills with this attitude
Yelling fuck you, fuck you, fuck every one of you
Yeah, Yeah that means fuck you too
So when the train pulls in the next station
This one big ass hardcore bouncer kinda Teamster kinda Paul Bunyon kinda motherfucker shoves a fool out the car door
Throws a haymaker, hits him in the chin
The whole train cheers the win
We’re all high-fiving, feeling excellent
Having extra fun like we’re next of kin
Save all your Kumbayas
Don’t take this shit too far
You don’t make no friends on no New York subway car
How come when we gotta come together
We wait until we got someone that we can all come together to hate
And then for the hottest minute we set our shit aside and relate?
And then forget again

[Hook]

Nobody wants to die so nobody thinks of it
What if at the blink of an eye we be at the brink of it
We tend to be blind when we’re right up in the thick of it
We got this life to live and it’s at our fingertips
I’m taking my time and trying to be making the most of it
Let’s open a wine bottle and we can all toast a bit
And I never get light when I’m drunk
So fuck all the poser shit
I’m tapping a vein, craving the truth, give me another dose of it
I’m not digging for danger but I decided that I won’t be taking time for my day for denying how I was made or fighting my human nature
I’m only looking to savor the ride
I’ve paid for my pride
Back when I would cry, cry, cry
Spending my life wondering why, why, why
Taking the view soon I know it’s all gonna fly right by
I will not go out like that
We won’t go out like that
We won’t go out like that
We won’t go out like (won’t go out like)
We won’t go out like that

[Verse 1]
5 o’clock moving like a rattlesnake in Venice
Shedding off my monkey suit well that’ll take a minute
Hold the door for me brothers and sisters it’s time to jettison
The world’s passing by I think it’s bout time that they let us in
My medicine is like better gin
Ice cold juiced sentiments
By all means I’m meddling
With a vibe to thrive like gentlemen
If I said I’m in i meant I’m in Cuz life’s short like seconds and
I don’t sleep I’m on bed of pins I’m trying to live in excellence
I feel my heart pumping blood pressure rising
Time is racing by me think a lot about my dying
I know it sounds morbid but my Scorpio is rising
And there’s final destinations all around me multiplying
I’m vying finding the Mayans to ask about my compliance
With living another life and buying up all the zions
They say this life is short but I got many more to give
Shit What would you wanna do if you had 24 to live?

[Hook]
Another day another plateau
Enjoying every place that i go
This may be just a tad taboo
But let’s get it like it’s running past due
Another night another chateau
Enjoying every place that I go
Just get it
Ya see cuz you never know
You never know
It could be your last day alive

[Verse 2]
And if it was my last day on this spinning shrub
I’d feel above cuz I lived it up
I’ve broke hearts i’ve been in love
I’ve got money i spent money
I’ve overfed and i been hungry
Ive moonlit and I been sunny
What more could they get from me
Been to Paris been to Rome
Been mobbed up and I been alone
Been a basket case on a simple throne
Masking tape on a sinful dome
Patches holding my right to fly
Strung up fast to the light an sky
If time runs this here fountain dry
Theres a few things i’d still like to try
Jump out of a plane and in 2 minutes feel relief
Cuz life is pretty sweet
When you’ve just fallen twenty thousand feet
I’d like to see the northern lights
I’d like to shoot around the sun
I’d like to see more of my wife
I’d like if we produced a son
This playing field is made to kill
But we survive what a crazy deal
If you want more time better pray for real
Cuz we all ain’t trained like navy seals
They say this life is short
But I got many more to give
Shit What would you wanna do if you had 24 to live?

[Hook]
Another day another plateau
Enjoying every place that i go
This may be just a tad taboo
But let’s get it like it’s running past due
Another night another chateau
Enjoying every place that I go
Just get it
Ya see cuz you never know
You never know
It could be your last day alive

[Verse 3]
Well what a life if i could hit that button twice
I’d stuff it like i want another strike
Trying to cut it like a butter knife
I seen things i wanna see more
Trying to cheat death on a detour
I wanna plant life Audrey’s store
Like come on feed me Seymour
What you doing if you ain’t living life like
To the top of cup and the light bright
You better get a ticket to the fight night
Cuz it’ll hit ya when you not up night night
I ain’t trying to leave quick
Trying to do the right thing Spike Lee shit
Better hold it down with a viking grip
Cuz the world moves quick with a lightning tip
I need to feel the breeze and the ease of ibiza
Soaking in all the features of being overachievers
I know i’ve said it before this life is truly caustic
So i refuse to be it’s hostage and that’s a promise
So gimme smiles and gimme fam
Gimme sights from another land
Gimme guile and gimme grand
Running miles for the modern man
They say this life is short but I got many more to give
So i’mma live it like i just had 24 to live

[Hook]
Another day another plateau
Enjoying every place that i go
This may be just a tad taboo
But let’s get it like it’s running past due
Another night another chateau
Enjoying every place that I go
Just get it
Ya see cuz you never know
You never know
It could be your last day alive

If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with Him in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin’ to make his way home?

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see if, seeing meant
That you would have to believe in things like heaven
And in Jesus and the saints, and all the prophets?

And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin’ to make his way home?

Just tryin’ to make his way home
Like back up to heaven all alone
Nobody callin’ on the phone
‘Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin’ to make his way home?

Just tryin’ to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just tryin’ to make his way home
Nobody callin’ on the phone
‘Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

Come è bella c’è la luna brilla e strette
Strette come è tutta bella a passeggiare
Sotto il cielo di Roma

Down each avenue or via, street or strada
You can see ’em disappearing two by two
On an evening in Roma

Do they take ’em for espresso
Yeah, I guess so
On each lover’s arm a girl I wish I knew
On an evening in Roma

Though there’s grining and mandolining in sunny Italy
The beginning has just begun when the sun goes down

So please meet me in the plaza near your casa
I am only one and that is much too few
On an evening in Roma

Don’t know what the country’s coming to
But in Rome do as the Romans do
Will you on an evening in Roma

Come è bella c’è la luna brilla e strette
Strette come è tutta bella a passeggiare
Sotto il cielo di Roma

Don’t know what the country’s coming to
But in Rome do as the Romans do
Will you on an evening in Roma
Sott’er celo de Roma
On an evening in Roma
