lights please lyrics – j. cole

“lights please”

uh

[verse one]
i had this little bad thing somethin’ like them 10’s
she gave a n*gg* mad brain somethin’ like the wiz
but you see the sad thing f*ckin’ with her is
is the chick ain’t even have brains dummy like a b*tch
so i tried to show her
about the world and about just who we really are
and where we’ve come and how we still have to go really far
like baby look at how we live broke on the boulevard
but all she ever want me to do is unhook her bra
then all i really want is for her to go down low
before you know it she wet enough to get drowned slow
and all that deep sh*t i was previously down for
replaced by freak sh*t i am currently down for
you see i peeped it, p*ssy is power
that proud feelin’ we get knowin’ that p*ssy is ours
and how it feels to feel that feelin’ you feelin’ when you be drillin’ that sh*t
got her sayin’ you be killin’ that sh*t
and all the pain the world cause
she be healin’ that sh*t
and nah that ain’t your girl dog
but you be feelin’ that chick
and you just wanna tell her everything she might need
but in the mean time it’s lights please

[hook]
lights please
lights please
turn off the lights
for now everything just seems so right
and how you make the darkness seem so bright
feelin’ like things gon’ be alright

lights please
lights please
turn off the lights
for now everything just seems so right
and how you make the darkness seem so bright
feelin’ like things gon’ be alright
lights please

[verse two]
so now we in the hotel
mirrors on the ceilin’
she say she wanna blow l’s
i hear her and i’m willin’
but everytime i smoke well a n*gg* mind gone
so that every word i spoke well i’m tryin’ to put her on
but she couldn’t hear me
i told her all about how we been livin’ a lie
and that they’d love to see us all go to prison or die
like baby look at how they show us on the tv screen
but all she ever want me to do is unzip her jeans
then all i really want is for her to get on top
before you know it she workin’ jerkin’ it non stop
and all that next sh*t i was previously talkin’
is now that wet sh*t that i’m currently lost in
and while that sweat drip i am reminded
all the times my brother told me that p*ssy is blindin’
i’m findin’ the more i grow the more y’all seem to stay the same
don’t even know the rules but yet y’all tryin’ to play the game
and ain’t it shameful how n*gg*s blame hoes for givin’ birth
to a baby that took two to make
coward n*gg* you a fake
how gon’ look in your sons face and turn your back
then go start another family dog what type of sh*t is that?
she said it’s okay
rubbed my head and told me to relax
laid a n*gg* down proper like she was recordin’ tracks
said i know you wanna change the world
but for the night please
just reach over and hit the lights please

[hook]
lights please
lights please
turn off the lights
for now everything just seems so right
and how you make darkness seem so bright
feelin’ like things gon’ be alright

lights please
lights please
turn off the lights
for now everything just seems so right
and how you make darkness seem so bright
feelin’ like things gon’ be alright
lights please

[outro]
uh uh uh
lights please
uh uh uh
lights please
uh uh uh
lights please
turn off the lights
lights please
yeah
that’s it
