August Alsina – Lessons lyrics

Had to leave a little bit
Grow a little bit
Now I rise, on the way up
And I was taught so many lessons
Yeah, yeah I learned so many lessons
I’m living proof that we all goin’ through shit
When you come up fast
Everything that you workin’ for, won’t seem to last
Man I learned too many lessons
Yeah I learned too many lessons, yeah
Learned so many lessons

Every day that you wake up (Wake up)
Make sure you pray before startin’ your day ’cause (Day)
Tomorrow ain’t promised (No)
Today is a gift, so don’t waste away
Call and tell someone you love ’em
Show somebody that you been thinkin’ of ’em
It ain’t about romance, it could really be your last chance
Turn off your cellphone (Oh, oh)
Give yourself sometime to think and be alone
How can you be about your business
Hanging ’round niggas with no business
So many people in show business got nothin’ to show for (No, no)
Ride out your jeans and just go for it (Go for it)
[?] your picture before you can [?]

Always listen to your first [?]
Now they turn to one, it’s your turn
As the spectators watchin’ you grind
Really hopin’ that you don’t get more shine than ’em
Those kinds of friends, are really your enemies
I read these little philosophies
Took a minute to get into me, and that’s ’cause

Had to leave a little bit
Grow a little bit
Now I rise, on the way up
And I was taught so many lessons
Yeah, yeah I learned so many lessons
I’m living proof that we all goin’ through shit
When you come up fast
Everything that you workin’ for, won’t seem to last
Man I learned too many lessons
Yeah I learned too many lessons, yeah
Learned so many lessons

You know the ones who really down for you
Are the ones who feel you when you down
Look out for them niggas who playin’
Loyalty ain’t nowhere to be found
Fuck with the ones who ain’t afraid of
Callin’ you out on your bullshit
That’s the ones who showin’ real love
That’s the niggas you can build with
Always keep you right (Oh, oh)
Only thing you really got it on this Earth
Don’t let no one treat you less than what you’re worth
Being selfish ain’t the same as puttin’ your first
That’s the first [?] (Oh)
Survival of the fittest (Oh)
Know that your haters love to hate you
Really no matter what it is

Always listen to your first [?]
Now they turn to one, it’s your turn
As the spectators watchin’ you grind (You grind)
Really hopin’ that you don’t get more shine than ’em (Them)
Those kinds of friends (Friends), are really your enemies (Enemies)
I read these little philosophies (Yeah)
Took a minute to get into me, and that’s ’cause

Had to leave a little bit
Grow a little bit
Now I rise, on the way up
And I was taught so many lessons
Yeah, yeah I learned so many lessons
I’m living proof that we all goin’ through shit
When you come up fast
Everything that you workin’ for, won’t seem to last
Man I learned too many lessons
Yeah I learned too many lessons, yeah
Learned so many lessons
