Sleep When I'm Gone Lyrics

'Bout to change the game
DJ Khaled
We The Best Forever
Cash Money, Young Money
I'm for real about this shit
Let's go

I've countin' my time 'cause my time is my money
The sun goes down but I won't stop for nothin'
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone
(Gone)

Lookin' at the clock like, yeah, yeah
Maps to my treasure, yeah, yeah
('Cause time's on my side so)
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone

Yeah, they say sleep is the cousin of death, guess we related
'Cause I'm the most slept on and the most hated
Hated, hated by niggas with no hustle
Starin' at me in the club like I won't bust you

In the face with the spades, life is a card game
And I'm playin' spades, gamblin' with short change
Fuckin' basketball wives while you at away games
Really fuckin' basketball wives, ain't gotta say names

Whole body tatted like a New York City freight train
Niggas get the bark and put a bullet in a Great Dane
Try me, end up like raw meat
Team full of animals like I coached the heat

Four floored mansion close to the beach
6 cork of wives, it's how I'm supposed to eat
In Miami, rollin' up kush on both decks
Flaggin' down the waitress, wavin' my Rolex

I've countin' my time 'cause my time is my money
The sun goes down but I won't stop for nothin'
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone
(Gone)

Lookin' at the clock like, yeah, yeah
Maps to my treasure, yeah, yeah
('Cause time's on my side so)
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone

Yo, I done survived the test of time, doin' this shit so long
And only rest to rise again, homie, I sleep when I'm gone
Look, a legend while I'm prime and so current and they hate this
The streets'll classify me another level of greatness

I don't fight for crowns at all, I let wack niggas bitch
And let them flip while they debate on who the king of this shit
Listen, see I don't waste time debatin' over them things
Because I'm God mother fucker, God create kings

Watch it, I'm hearin' that a lot of niggas mad through the grapevine
Piano soundin' beautiful and sad at the same time
The feelin' that a funeral so study, you niggas
Khaled provide the theme music while I bury you niggas

See now there's no escape in the God, you'd better find a getaway
'Fore I start wilin' like Haitians and Jamaicans when it's Labor Day
Khaled, every time you know we gotta make 'em love it
And realize that everything is hotter when we touch it

I've countin' my time 'cause my time is my money
The sun goes down but I won't stop for nothin'
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone
(Gone)

Lookin' at the clock like, yeah, yeah
Maps to my treasure, yeah, yeah
('Cause time's on my side so)
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone

Ayo, Khaled, let this shit breathe

Spoiled little rich nigga, that's me
Smoke comin' out the sumbel blowin' on hashish
Can't stop now 'cause I'm in too deep
1.5 ride every 2 weeks

Niggas wanna kill me, let the shells fall out
Life is short in place, my kids gon' ball out
Their kids gon' ball out, 20 years from now pullin' cars out
You gon' think cocaine gettin' hogged out

Ecs gettin' shipped in, Crystal Meth gettin' dipped in
All 'cause you let a nigga slip in
Aftermath 05, G-Unit 06
Everything else with watch the dough flip

Sittin' on the couch smokin' up memories
Pourin' Jack Daniels, toast to my enemies
Fuck beef, nigga, I ain't got the energy
Take the last shot to the dome, John Kennedy

I've countin' my time 'cause my time is my money
The sun goes down but I won't stop for nothin'
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone
(Gone)

Lookin' at the clock like, yeah, yeah
Maps to my treasure, yeah, yeah
('Cause time's on my side so)
Why close my eyes? I'd rather sleep when I'm gone
Sleep when I'm gone, sleep when I'm gone
