Lupe Fiasco - LightWork Lyrics

  • [Hook: Ellie Goulding]
  • I had a way then
  • Losing it all on my own
  • I had a heart then
  • But the queen has been overthrown
  • And I'm not sleeping now
  • The dark is too hard to beat
  • And I'm not keeping up
  • The strength I need to push me
  • You show the lights that stop me, turn to stone
  • You shine it when I'm alone
  • And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
  • And dreaming when they're gone
  • Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
  • Calling, calling, calling home
  • You show the lights that stop me, turn to stone
  • You shine it when I'm alone
  • [Verse 1 - Lupe Fiasco]
  • So, what are you going to stand for?
  • Dreads in the sky, I and I
  • 2 new Vans on a land for
  • Take that back, make that 2 new shoes on the van floor
  • Me and my band out on that road
  • On a never-back-down-from-my-stance tour
  • Touch more souls than a dance floor
  • While they touch less floors than a hand or
  • Ceiling fan or - wait, let me tell ya slower
  • Lift my fans up to the ceiling
  • And you'll never touch the floor
  • Now if Noah need a rower
  • I'll be there with my oar
  • Til we get back to the shore
  • Dad made me a soldier
  • GI Joe to these Cobras
  • Tryna FBI my Panther
  • CIA my Sankofa
  • Infiltrate my Carter
  • Illuminate my culture
  • While they watching through that buckle
  • But I stay up on my hustle
  • Turn that belt back on they self
  • Now I watch them scream for help
  • Like Africa need aid, or black women as maids
  • Uncover undercovers turn those maids to Bubba's mothers
  • Take the hero out the Nino
  • Keep it real as trouble trouble huh?
  • Or maybe cartoon Martin on The Boondocks
  • Flip the script on chicks who think their shit smells like perfume shops
  • Help them girls find beauty
  • Without a magazine or movie
  • She Delilah with them .45s and Keisha with that Uzi
  • Now I know that's contradiction
  • Wants and needs in competition but
  • It's hard to stay on point with such extremes in opposition
  • While we waiting on that compromise
  • Proceed with that conscious eye
  • New gang alert: hashtag occupies
  • Repper 'til the death of it
  • FnF, what's left of me
  • All my hate is for the fake recipes for wrestling
  • Only time I wrestle's when I'm wrestling with settling
  • Only way I settle if we wrestle over everything
  • I know that don't mix like ecstasy and ketamine
  • Funny how I'm only sick if you never catch a thing
  • Argue with your friends over what really the record means
  • Back and forth about its course, with professor's refereeing
  • Why he so rebellious? Up-front with his realness?
  • They wanna be fiascoes, reproduce his failures
  • Emperor is his alias, but not Marcus Aurelius
  • This is more like Sparta: kick you down a well, kid
  • And on my last check, I copped the NSX, just like Pharrell did
  • Well did, better doings to come
  • My only promise is I'll never ruin the young
  • I'll never human the sung lyrics in a spirit that's
  • Superhuman to some, keep you pursuing the sum of
  • Slums, plus, get up out of them, plus, never forget
  • Just where you from, plus
  • Make sure you ballin' when you come back up in them, plus
  • We don't die, multiply, every single come-up
  • Rum-pum-pum-pum..
