You can drop a Wet Floor sign down for the tears
God and my court date, the two things I fear
Man, they tryna give a nigga years
Im tryna figure if I should even appear
Or should I escape town? Catch a Greyhound
Change my name, right catch a plane flight
Out the country, let them mafuckas hunt me
Come and catch me if you want me
Know theyll lock me if I stay
But where Imma run to?
I got a good girl, we got a son too
And all we went through, we aint see eye-to-eye
But what you told me way back, you was a ride-or-die
So if they give me one, or if they give me two
Or if a nigga gotta sit down and do a few
Before I go, baby, I gotta know, what would you do?
Would you find someone new or would you stay?
Like the hoes when they lay with me?
Puppy eyes when I go, sayin stay with me
Aw, girl, you bad as hell and yet Id love to
But see I got a girl Im really makin love to
Therefore Im feelin a lot more guilty when I rub you
Thats why I skip all of that kissin when I fuck you
Flush the condom down the toilet then I skate
I had you, but you cant have me, I never stay


Ha! Life in a hometown, fore I could take a step
Im gettin grown now
And startin to notice that I see the same hoes around
Guess they had to go round, my raps is profound
I got the flows ,but yet a nigga aint got no sound
Copped a beat machine, Im cookin up my own now
Got my mind on the city where it goes down
See, if Imma get to where Im goin then I cant stay
Although I love it here
Ill be damned if I sit around another year
Dreamin dreams, hopin somehow that they just appear
The hardest part of leavin is to know my mother here
Oh, but Im comin back oh boy, believe that
Lets show the little niggas, boy, you can achieve that
Got the city on my shoulders, piggy back
Hello, my name is Cole and Im here to stay
