Till I Get There Lyrics

Album on hold whole world on hold
The crowd is "HO!" Operator's like "hold"
Man, now ain't that cold?
I'm just tryna talk to my homie that's up in a hole
Now home girl no tryna be a hoe
Even though she on a pole
Now can she get a second chance? No!
Woah, like the opposite of go
That ain't how it's supposed to be(bee), or butterfly
Or for the sake of rhyming let's just say "butterflyee"
The truth stings like Muhammad Ali
I tell 'em tell 'em don't homocide me
I'm just a little old hope with his back against the ropes
Fighting for his fans and, fighting for his folks
But the boo's from the crowd can become so loud
If I could block em out then, I could knock em out then
Dance around the ring, but until then I'll say

Hook:
I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
Until I get there
Until I get there
And yeah I got flaws, I know I'm not perfect
But all the ups and downs, will soon be worth it
When I get there
When I get there

Doctor doctor please, the fame ain't painless enough
That's cuz you ain't famous enough
You got a little game, but your name ain't ringing enough
He said take two of these, put some change in my cup
I said I wasn't poor he gave me some more
Prescribed me a publicist and pointed to the door
Out, ouch, I'm telling you this all from a therapist's couch
Tell me 'bout your mother, what she's all about
Prescribed me a interview and then told me to bounce
Damn, jeez, the world is so cold, I'm glad I bought these ski's
Went right off of the bunny slopes and right into the trees
Rendered unconscious they rushed me to a concert
Instead of green jello, and maybe chicken soup
They fed me magazine covers, and video shoots

Hook:
I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
Until I get there
Until I get there
And yeah I got flaws, I know I'm not perfect
But all the ups and downs, will soon be worth it
When I get there
When I get there

And when I finally make it I'mma stunt so hard
Evil as Knievel I'mma jump so far
Way up in the atmosphere, I ain't coming back
Be a jerk to them jerks yeah, that'll make 'em hurt
Huh? Said a young boy in the mirror
A young version of me, so I started to tear up
He said you need to cheer up, your mind need to clear up
You're already here, just be yourself from here up
And then he disappeared and I felt something familiar
Something I was taught, something I had lost
If you are afraid, or fear that you gon' change some
All you gotta do is just remember where you came from

Hook:
I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
Until I get there
Until I get there
And yeah I got flaws, I know I'm not perfect
But all the ups and downs, will soon be worth it
When I get there
When I get there
