J Cole - Once An Addict (Interlude) Lyrics

  • [Intro]
  • Right, right, right, right
  • Something's got a hold on me
  • Right, right, right, right
  • Sometimes I think pain is just a lack of understanding
  • If we could only understand it all, would we feel no pain?
  • God must feel no pain
  • Something's got a hold on me
  • Only joy
  • Does this mean even our suffering pleases him?
  • [Verse]
  • Lost in a cloud of marijuana
  • Young Carolina nigga, fish out of water
  • Step-daddy just had a daughter with another woman
  • Mama ain't recover yet
  • Callin' me at 12 at night
  • She drunk as ***** and I'm upset
  • 'Cause why she always using me for crutch?
  • Growin' up I used to always see her up
  • Late as shit, cigarette smoke and greatest hits from Marvin Gaye
  • She kill a whole bottle of some cheap chardonnay
  • I gotta leave this house 'cause part of me dies when I see her like this
  • Too young to deal with pain
  • I'd rather run the streets than see her kill herself
  • So 'Ville became my escape from a feelin' I hate
  • Mama cursing me out
  • Depression's such a villainous state
  • I used to stay out later on purpose
  • Subconsciously I was nervous that if I came home early then what would surface was her inner demons
  • And then I'd have to end up seein' my hero on ground zero
  • Tears flow while Al Green blow
  • Love and happiness
  • I wish that I could say the right words to cheer her up
  • I wish her son's love was enough
  • I tell her, "Mama, go to sleep"
  • She tell me "Boy, hush. You better pray to God you never get your heart crushed"
  • I shake my head in frustration
  • Head to my room and I can still hear the tunes with my door shut
  • ***** it though, a couple more months I'll be gone
  • Off to college and dorms
  • Foolin' myself, thinkin' problems are gone
  • But now it's 1 AM and my mama dialin' my phone
  • I know she intoxicated and soon this high that I'm on comes crashin' down
  • She lit, talkin' drunk shit, I'm pissed
  • But I'm still all ears like Basset Hounds
  • Thinkin' to myself, "Maybe my mama need help
  • Don't she got work in the morning?
  • Why she do this to herself?
  • Hate how she slurrin' her words
  • Soundin' so *****in' absurd
  • This ain't the woman I know, why I just sit and observe?
  • Why don't I say how I feel?
  • When I do, she's defensive for real
  • Well maybe things get better with time, I heard it heals
  • Little did I know how deep her sadness would go
  • Lookin' back, I wish I woulda did more instead of runnin'
  • [Outro]
  • Something's got a hold on me
  • I can't let it go
  • Out of fear I won't be free
  • Something's got a hold on me
  • I can't let it go
  • Out of fear I won't be—
  • No!
  • Something's got a hold on me
  • I can't let it go
  • Right
  • Life can bring much pain
  • There are many ways to deal with this pain (right)
  • Choose wisely (right)
