Nowhere Fast Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Now you, now you, now you, now you, now you, whoever you are
As you're listening to what I'm going to say
Will probably not want to believe what I'm going to tell you
And there isn't any way in which I can make you believe
I can only state the facts as they are
And hope that you will really believe me

Hey yesterday, you were supposed to meet me now I got to testify
I waited hours for you, guess that all was just a lie
Quick as you stepped inside soon enough you said goodbye
Peace out! I'm gone and won't be back! I heard your echo cry
Oh how the seconds fly left without a second try
I check and try to recollect how I just let you die
And now I wallow in these severed ties
Of yesterday

Of yesterday girl, your really gone I guess that's how it just should be
I had big plans for us today but now you're history
Today's a mystery you took pieces I miss of me
I keep on diggin' deep tryin' to find that kid in me
We had some really good discussions back then, didn't we?
Befriended me but now we don't speak like we're enemies
And all I got is memories
Of yesterday

But yesterday memories are priceless and I'm really glad you left 'em
They're etched inside I take a ride when driftin' through the spectrum
It's just at times I dwell and dwell and then I have to catch up
To now I'm back in time it ceased to march it just kept on
I want you back I want you back when you was here I slept on
What I appreciate a little more now as a blessing
Now I'm complaining and regretting
About yesterday
And I'm just goin' nowhere fast

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
I am not complacent

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
I am not complacent
You're stuck in a flurry of illusions goin' nowhere fast

I am today, I'm all that ever was and ever is and uh
It is an honor, don't become a mental prisoner
Just listen to the now and keep your mind from driftin' off
I am the mission, the position of this instance uh
New opportunity to get the love you're wishin' for
To kick the door in to live for your ambitions, what?
You can move on out to elevate your existence up
Today

I'm just today, I'm just the way I am
I am ever single day I am
I'm February, April, March and even May I am
I'm only what you make me hope I'm what you pray I am
Today I am, I'm never really far away I am
You better stalk me like the hunter does the prey I am
You play I am out in the future yes today I am
I'm everything your memory say I am
Today

So seize me, I'm here to serve you if you serve me back
It's easy, but difficult that's time alone squeeze me
From beaming your feet when your all your actions turn to banking
An inkling, a hint, I'm moving faster than your blinking
So treat to just a slice of heaven why you cheat me?
Deceive me and now I'm hell inside these thoughts that link me
To flesh the soul it's bound to I was truly made to be free
Today
Instead I'm going nowhere fast

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
I am not complacent

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
I am not complacent

I'm only saying this to show how all around
Man or beast sleep away their gift of time
And never know the beauty of a good life below

I'm 'bout to change the way I'm livin' homey
I'm eatin' vegan, no ham or baloney
I'm startin' off my day with yoga stretches
I'm 'bout to master self to study lessons
I'm swearin' off the weed and alcohol
I won't be affected by doubts at all
The sky's the limit, watch I'm 'bout to ball
Tomorrow? Tomorrow

I'm spendin' every single dollar wisely
I'm writin' songs that's bumpin' like the Isleys
I'll have the answers you can all confide in me
Nothin' the day could bring that will surprise me
I'm buildin' to the fullest every minute
I'm through talkin' the talk, I'm 'bout to live it
Ain't even started yet, I'm at the finish line
Tomorrow? Tomorrow

Man I can't wait until it's here I'm sayin'
Oh what, you hatin'? What, you think I'm playin'?
You think I ain't? Just go ahead and watch me
I'll use the lessons yesterday has taught me
I'm countin' hours, minutes even seconds
Man I can't even sleep, I'll build my Heaven
Oh what, it's here? Oh, oh what, it's gone?
Don't even trip, just give me one more day
It's really gonna be on tomorrow

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
(You're stuck in a flurry of illusions goin' nowhere fast)
I am not complacent

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
(You're stuck in a flurry of illusions goin' nowhere fast)
I am not complacent

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
(You're stuck in a flurry of illusions goin' nowhere fast)
I am not complacent

I don't try to stay here
I just fly away here
Out of my oasis
(You're stuck in a flurry of illusions goin' nowhere fast)
I am not complacent

There we are
All finished
And you don't know how much I appreciate your pardon

Watch out blazing arrow
Do it just how you talk it
Nigga rolled in and walk it
Stick a toe in the water
Don't falter, go on and fall in

Tell me, do you know your calling?
Yo, what your mission is fella?
I caught this vision when I met a fortune teller in New Orleans

French Quarter on the bus bench an arbitrary corner
Sorta scary looking elder woman showed up outta nowhere
She stared into my eyes and said
"Sure as I breathe
You were conceived and walk the earth to
Spit that heat, purifying I believe
So are you ready for your cleansin'?
'Cause this is only the beginning"
