Lute – Birdsong Lyrics

Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Life’s a challenge, so for balance had to right some wrongs
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Life’s a challenge, so for balance had to right some wrongs
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong

[Post-Chorus: JID]
A pretty little bird on my doorstep awoke me
I open my eyes to a place I don’t know yet
But been once before, yesterday in a moment
Rememberin’ times I was loveless and lonely, damn

Government that sent the stimulus
Donated it to black kids or mental illness
Diamond necklace don’t determine realness
I’m just rappin’ ’til I’m somewhere chillin’
Feet in this feelin’, I need for healin’
Rap shit don’t be appealin’ to me no more
Pedal to floor like scappacks at the intersection
Don’t look back ’cause you might miss a blessin’
Catch me in the city, bendin’ blocks like we playin’ tetris
Been that nigga since an adolescence
I done learned some lessons
Come back better like I never fail
Manifest my future like a wishing well
Married to the game, but I don’t kiss and tell
We don’t talk as much, but I still wish you well
Roll up my sleeves like I do my heart
Kites fly higher with a runnin’ start
Niggas tryna down me like I’m Tony Stark
I be more like Clark without the cape
But with a gold tooth
Nigga just be you, ’cause all that fake shit gon’ expose through
Shawty say she cold, my heart cold too
I be layin’ low, but I still roll through
Get it how you live, and that’s the cold truth
Birds of a feather flock
Together me and my dawgs flew
Shit cost me more than it cost you
Collect my coin then I’ma dip off
Niggas can’t be me, so they be pissed off
Imagine how they face look when I lift off
Niggas think it’s givin’, but that shit cost

Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Life’s a challenge, so for balance had to right some wrongs
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong

Live and let live
I’m free, I’m like the prison system lessening the bid
I come from uncles with beer bellies and Pelle Pelle leather
To a plethora of rap niggas tellin’ me that they better with no proof
Just subjective thought ain’t quite been thought out
A grain of salt to listen to anythin’ out of yall mouth
This what it feel like when makin’ amends after a fall out
I got the ball in my court, fuck it, I ball out
If you seen what we saw, you probably would tear an eyeball out
I’m talkin’ ’bout depressions and messin’ up legacies and success
His head down, seven up, but got ’em see like I’m Bethlehem born
Destined for more, outdancin’ the Devil
The best is yet to come, I feel like Eve’s second son
I am able, can’t let ’em lead you astray like Adam was
I keep goin’, but that’s enough
He got bigheaded, they gassed him up
Caught him outside with medallions tucked
I swear this shit it can get sad as fuck
But

Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Life’s a challenge, so for balance had to right some wrongs
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong
Life’s a challenge, so for balance had to right some wrongs
Live how I wanna ’cause I’m freer than a birdsong

A pretty little bird on my doorstep awoke me
I open my eyes to a place I don’t know yet
But been once before, yesterday in a moment
Rememberin’ times I was loveless and lonely, damn
