Lyrics Academy Freestyle – SonReal

There’s so much inside of me
Like a show car there’s, no drivin’ me
Off the deep end ’cause I’ve been there
And I’d like to thank the academy
For all the times I acted like
My afterthoughts had no afterlife
Bein’ too different can take its toll
Authenticity has its price

My pain trickle when the sample run
I get right to it, I don’t have to run
I got one life, I got one wife
I got one kid, I’m bout to add two
And this pen don’t move itself
I got things to say that I never felt
I got stones unturned that I never rolled
I got stories here that I never told and

Lately, I been seasick
My heart vroom like a V6
FaceTime my sister every day, I miss her
Haven’t even met my niece yet
Got an old friend goin’ through things
I wish I could take all that pain away
I wanna be the one you can come to
And that good news just a day away

I put my life on blast
No highlights, no shiny lights, no petty hype
I steady write to save my life ’cause without this
I might just fade away like Hardaway into harder days
But I prefer the Shawn Carter way
I make the song cry while I encore

I got everything, I don’t want more
And I see it all from the top floor
To be honest with you, I just paint a picture
Based on things that I fought for
39th Ave to Sherman Oaks
From my pop’s basement, just burnin’ smoke

God watchin’ on me, yeah
God watchin’ on me
And He never miss
Yeah, I know
Nobody happy all the time
That’s something that they don’t quite show
Let it go
Academy freestyle
Let’s go…
