J. Cole – Cheer Up Lyrics


You pyonged “J. Cole – Cheer Up”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Even through the joy I feel the pain
Even in the sun I feel the rain
Even when I’m high I feel the lows

Like that's all I know
Lord knows I can't complain
But even when I do it feels the same

I’m getting high just to fight the lows, cuz that's all I know

[Verse 1]
School girl, cool girl
You dressing sexy and your mama is a cougar
So she let you do the grown folks thang
Let you hang with them boys and they play you like a fool girl

You got your new hair, it look so good
You write the same niggas name in your notebook
You know the same one from class, the one you let smash

Now you see him 'round school and he won't look
Now girl you is fine, ain't no doubt about it
But why else you think he hit it and forgot about it?

Its cause your mind dont match what your ass got
But cheer up, you gotta be your own mascot
You see you're lookin for a man like you need somebody
Get your ass off of Twitter, you could be somebody!
A doctor, a rock star, baby, live life!
But you rather wet up all your pillows at night thinking...


That's all I know, that's all I know
That's all I know, that's all I...

Hey cheer up!
Ey lil' mama, cheer up!

You got your whole life to live, ey why you want tear up?
Don’t let them lil' boy comp...
Hey, hey!

[Verse 2]
Yea, I wake up in the morning and I ask my self
Is life worth living, should I blast myself?

Don't even wanna get out of bed
I got the Glock to my head, feel I rather be dead

Hey, am I hopeless? Raised with rats and roaches
Never like them teachers, couldn't stand my coaches
Ask whats the matter but you can't relate
Living the life that you hate but you can't escape

Feel like I’m stuck here, that's why I don't give the fuck here
There's no luck here! No body to trust here

My own mother, yeah I love her
But things I heard as a child under my covers
Left me with scars, it was hard to see her suffer
Blocking my heart and I don't know if I’ll recover

I'm going under and as I'm headed out the front door
She said she proud of me and I wonder what for
And once more
