No Greater Love

[Verse 1]

I get a grip, I grip my pen, begin like Genesis
To write you a letter, home girl. You ain't getting it
And although you're free spirited, I'm with it
But a lot changed since the last time you visited
Burning paper planes cuz you've been MIA
The spotlight's on you and you went center stage
Playing hard to get, flexing the cold shoulder
Speaking in general, you ain't been with a soldier
Maybe cuz you're older, don't know what the game is
But I'm from DC, where kids carry stainless
No afterthought of where they aim it or they bang it
And walking in your own hood can prove to be dangerous

What I'm trying to say is: I know how to fight
Ever since you left, all I do is write
Wouldn't call it love, I wouldn't call it lust
I think I'd call it "interest" or such

People say I'm tripping. Would tripping have you texting her late night around 3:30
Trying to explain feelings without seeming thirsty?

Call me crazy, but I think she's worthy

[Hook]

On the real, though, they wonder who I'm talking 'bout
Back to the drawing board. Lemme chalk it out
All I wanna do is talk it out
Fucking up my mental when I think about you
Homies telling me, "She don't even think about you."

They say the chase is half the fun
But not when home girl ain't showing no love


[Verse 2]

Less I never settle for
She's hard to get like a majority of my metaphors
I can get her but I'm not cocky
I need to Comme des fuckdown like the hats worn by Rocky
ASAP.
I see it and I want it. I don't want a girl; I want a woman
The type of chick that says she can feel it in her stomach
Through my music cuz my lines are like good loving

So she keeps coming back to see me
Ain't nothing better than a pretty lady that's happy
Body's a sin. We live in blasphemy
But then I realize it's all a dream

[Hook]

[Verse 3]

The Declaration allows pursuit of happiness
So if I pursue you, will I be the happiest
Man that ever was? Fought tooth, nail, lost blood
Devised a plan to get you ever so immaculately?
I won't stop. I'm headstrong
Funny thing is, you won't even hear this song
And I can rap forever. Go on and on and on
And since you're hot as fire, I should let this drag on
Got it off my chest. I'm alive again
Really liked this song, had to take it for a spin
Got it mapped out from beginning to the end
So if I can't get you, I can at least be your friend


[Hook]
