Chasing Pavements Lyrics

by MGK

I made up my mind
No need to think it over
If I'm wrong or I'm right
Don't need to look no further
This ain't lust
I know this is love
Should I give up or
Should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Oh, would it be a waste?
Even if I knew my place?
Should I leave it there?
Should I give up?
Or should I just keep on chasing pavements?

Verse 1:
Fall asleep until the dream comes
Motherfuck reality
Happiness, I think I need some
So I overdose on fantasy
My life's equation isn't complicated
Just a combination of hate is denominated as stated
No rest plus the cess and abuse of prescription meds
Times stress equals out to be the mother fuckin mess that is Kells
The boy with no home
That's why I live in your speakers through this song
That's why they turn it up so loud, the bass hits and
You can feel me when I'm gone
And when I die, spread my message like the Qu'ran
Mother fuckers getting paid
I'm just trying to get saved
7 years of living crooked
I'm just trying to get straight
All this crack in my city, even though these streets paved
Makes me wonder if I should let all my life's dreams wait
Or should I...

(Hook)

Verse 2:
Bored out of my mind, I need a fuckin job
But they ain't hiring shit, that's why I fuckin rob
Had to hustle cause unless you got them test scores
Colleges only come around here looking for Brett Favre
For the next star, or if you're 6'4"
And if you can pitch but other then that shit you just pitch raw
That's why I'm pissed for
Cause if you ain't worth a couple dollars
These scholars looking like, "What do we need him for?"
I'm saying, just because I ain't Kareem, you telling me I should give up on my dreams?
You telling me I ain't shit cause I ain't working for degrees, or on a team?
This country's flag is a joke
That shit should be painted green
Tell me when is currency valued more than a human being?
When we stand for nothing, we falling for anything.
But EST for life, and that's exactly what I'll scream
Misunderstood until they answer one thing - What's that? Kells.

(Hook)
