losing my balance lyrics – j. cole

“losing my balance”

yea huh
yea one, two, one, two, one, two
one, two, one two uh-huh
yea, uh
yea uh

miss high profile caught you shopping on c*n*l
i guess it makes sense, it seems phony as your style
your hair and your nails just as phony as your smile
fake eyelashes, you drew your eyebrows
it make a brother ask, do you pride yourself?
your make up like a mask, tryna hide yourself
it seems on the outside you thinking you the sh*t
but there’s a soul that’s inside that you don’t even knew exist
so you so out of touch that the world mistreat you,
rich n*gg*s f*ck you and broke n*gg*s beat you
hoping this will reach you when you understand
that your value ain’t determined by another man
cause right now you let them brothers get the upper hand
and you just tell them go deep like cunningham
and you just let them od like len bias
and that p*ssy so good he let his friends try it

losing your balance, yea uh
losing your balance, yea uh
losing your balance,
girl you losing your balance uh, yea
don’t slip don’t fall,
just a get a grip my n*gg* hold on
don’t lose your balance,
don’t lose your balance

i look around at my city this is sinville
that boy 11 years old and can inhale
sometimes i ride around wondering if we in h*ll
or why the cops love to throw a n*gg* in jail
i’m bout to lose it i just had another friend killed
over some bullsh*t this cycle’s like a windmill
i had a convo with my soul i asked it “when will, this sh*t change? ”
it said boy “just use them pen skills”-
and so i write this for my n*gg*s on the corner
love you cause you my brother so i feel i got to warn ya
this sh*t ain’t set up for a young brother to advance
on that note, you n*gg*s playing right into their hands
d*mn, better get yourself some goals, you n*gg*s better dream
i know the hood raised you but there’s bigger better things
and for those that p*ssed i need a moment of silence
sssssshhhhh

yea and don’t be losing your balance
don’t be losing your balance,
don’t be losing your balance,
my n*gg* don’t be losing your balance,
uh yea so don’t slip, don’t fall
just a get a grip my n*gg* hold on
don’t lose your balance, uh
don’t lose your balance

i got a thing for this little mama
she do it to me plus her brain is forreal i’m a… sucka for love i guess
won’t catch her up in the club cause she ain’t into that
kind of chick that rather rent a flick and get intimate
say she never f*ck with thug n*gg*s only gentlemen
and yea that *ss is fat but what’s better is her intellect
other men ah sweat her when we walk past
can’t even blame em’ i did the same when i saw that *ss
matched with the thin waist, brown with a slim face
love the conversation and the kicks was like a sensei
now she got me chillin’ with her all around the clock
my homiess beefin’ cause i never come around a lot
keep on telling me i changed and things ain’t the same
and ever since she came around i never want to hang
they tell me that it’s foul how a chick will make me switch
but man i can’t help it dog her mind got me whipped

i think i’m losing my balance
i think i’m losing my balance yea
she got me losing my balance, uh
she got me losing my balance,
but i won’t slip i won’t fall,
just a get a grip and hold on
losing my balance,
losing my balance
