Dear Old Nicki Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Maybe you died 'cause everybody ask me where you at
I try to channel you in hopes that I could steer you back
But it's like every intersection we just missed each other
You got your fans waiting, tell me you ain't six feet under

And tell me that you're coming back and you just took a break
Maybe I blamed you for everything, that was my mistake
In hindsight I loved your rawness and I loved your edge
'Cause it was you who talked me down from jumping off the ledge

Your earrings bamboo, your long nails too, your BMW
Every-time you came through you was the brave heart
You stole Wayne heart, you never switched it up
You played that same part but I needed to grow and I needed to know

But there's some things inside of me that I needed to show
So I just deaded you, left you in all black
But dear old Nicki, please call back

You told me you'd come when I needed you
And you said it so sweetly I believed you
But I'm standing here calling, I can't see you
But I am holding you, holding you, holding you to that

Yo, did I chase the glitz and glamor, money, fame, and power?
'Cause if so that will forever go down my lamest hour
I should've kept you with me, getting at the nameless cowards
They was no match for you, couldn't defeat your powers

I had to make them changes, I hope you understood
You see for every bad, I did a ton of good
But you was underground and I was mainstream
I live the life now that we would daydream

My only wish is you come enjoy it with me
Get on them conference calls, go meet the lawyers with me
The money came, yeah I tripled and quadrupled it
But I still miss us when we were on some stupid shit

And it's still fuck the media
They ridiculed you, never believed in ya
They just debted you, left you in all black
Dear old Nicki, please call back

You told me you'd come when I needed you
And you said it so sweetly I believed you
But I'm standing here calling, I can't see you
But I am holding you, holding you, holding you to that

Yes, I'm holding you, holding you, holding you
Yes, I'm holding you, holding you, holding you
Yes, I'm holding you, holding you, holding you to that

Yes, I'm holding you, holding you, holding you
Yes, I'm holding you, holding you, holding you
Yes, I'm holding you, holding you, holding you to that
