Lyrics Hold Back The River – NoCap & Clever

We gave love first, and we knew that it wouldn’t last
Like we cops and crooks, we don’t ever want to look back
It felt like home, but we got evicted, we didn’t wanna move
They left us abandoned, they left us scarred
They left us with open wounds

I’ve been struggling tryna hold back the river
Injuries, my heart been shattered
I’m struggling tryna hold back the river
Just going on competition, my heart race faster

I smell the hate, that s**t so potent
If I ever cry, I bet my tears fill up a ocean
I’ma get her fly, I’ma take the b**ch up outta Lotus
A legend in the trap game, I’ma get to coaching

All I ever saw was rain, so I brainstorm
Now they think I hang with you, I’m in Saint Laurent
How a n**ga killed Duke, my n**ga went broke on guns
Burnt Slim, my bones, they left me nothing

And I’ve been tryna hold back the river
‘Cause it’s gone flood up
So I’m just tryna hold back the river
And wear my best fake smile
Even when it ain’t working
Gotta still make sure you pray
Suicide ain’t worth it
‘Cause you wanna get away like its a vacation
We was catching footballs
We grew older, then we started catching cases
Think I might go insane
But my straitjacket custom-made though

Play with that gang, money on his head like halos
Count different money, but we in the trap with the same clothes
I’ma sell this drank, I won’t never sell my soul
I’ll go do life, lay in the grave ’bout my n**ga Joe
Is they all riding I doubt it, but we will never know
Even if the light stay red, we still gotta go
You bring ’em in yo trap , them n**gas are still rats
I ain’t talking scoliosis, but let’s bring the real back
We here to get high, we chew Percs like they candy
Give my young n**gas the word, they wigging like they from Kansas
Spent five thousand on merch, we would shoot dice on the campus
They left me all alone, I start feeling abandoned

We gave love first, and we knew that it wouldn’t last
Like we cops and crooks, we don’t ever want to look back
It felt like home, but we got evicted, we didn’t wanna move
They left us abandoned, they left us scarred
They left us with open wounds

I’ve been struggling tryna hold back the river
Injuries, my heart been shattered
I’m struggling tryna hold back the river
Just goin’ on competition, my heart race faster

They ask me how I feel
I feel like a part of me has died behind the wheel
Just tryna fill a void, I can feel a void
This old street I used to drive, I still avoid
But I still see its wooden cross
As a child, I watch a fire take my family home
And eνerything that we had, it was practically gone
Years later, I would lose it all and take what I found
And burn it to the ground

I have fake friends out here writing statements
The Jake slid through out from under my cell door
And smiled, they really try my patience
I got indicted later, I thought you was s’posed to be here
My child was just a month old, I thought I was off to prison
My grandmother died listening to my song and I missed the funeral
And now when the birds sings, sometimes, I stop and listen
The tears can’t stop the fire, as they fall, the flames get higher
And I’m struggling tryna hold back the river
Yeah, but it’s so strong, tryna hold on
And hold back the river

We gave love first, and we knew that it wouldn’t last
Like we cops and crooks, we don’t ever want to look back
It felt like home, but we got evicted, we didn’t wanna move
They left us abandoned, they left us scarred
They left us with open wounds

I’ve been struggling tryna hold back the river
Injuries, my heart been shattered
I’m struggling tryna hold back the river
Just goin’ on competition, my heart race faster…
