Kendrick Lamar – PRIDE. Lyrics 


Love’s gonna get you killed

But pride’s gonna be the death of you and you and me

And you and you and you and me

And you and you and you and me

And you and you and you and me

And you and you and you and me and
It wasn’t all to share, but there

In another life, I surely was there

It wasn’t all to share, but there

I care, I care
Hell-raising, wheel-chasing, new worldy possessions

Flesh-making, spirit-breaking, which one would you lessen?

The better part, the human heart, you love ’em or dissect ’em

Happiness or flashiness? How do you serve the question?

See, in the perfect world, I would be perfect, world

I don’t trust people enough beyond they surface, world

I don’t love people enough to put my faith in man

I put my faith in these lyrics hoping I make a band, I understand

I ain’t perfect, I probably won’t come around, this time, I might put you down

Last time, I ain’t give a fuck, I still feel the same now

My feelings might go numb, you’re dealing with cold thumb

I’m willing to give up a leg and arm and show empathy from

Pity parties and functions and you and yours

A perfect world, you probably live another 24

I can’t fake humble just ’cause your ass is insecure

I can’t fake humble just ’cause your ass is insecure
It wasn’t all to share, but there

In another life, I surely was there

It wasn’t all to share, but there

I care, I care
Maybe I wasn’t there

Maybe I wasn’t there

Maybe I wasn’t there

Maybe I wasn’t there
Now, in a perfect world, I probably won’t be insensitive

Cold as December but never remember what winter did

I wouldn’t blame you for mistakes I made or the bed I laid

Seems like I point the finger just to make a point nowadays

Smiles and cold stares, the temperature goes there

Indigenous disposition, feel like we belong here

I know the walls, they can listen, I wish they could talk back

The hurt becomes repetition, the love almost lost that

Sick venom in men and women overcome with pride

A perfect world is never perfect, only filled with lies

Promises are broken and more resentment come alive

Race barriers make inferior of you and I

See, in a perfect world, I’ll choose faith over riches

I’ll choose work over bitches, I’ll make schools out of prison

I’ll take all the religions and put ’em all in one service

Just to tell ’em we ain’t shit, but He’s been perfect, world
It wasn’t all to share, but there

In another life, I surely was there

It wasn’t all to share, but there

I care, I care
Maybe I wasn’t there

Maybe I wasn’t there

Maybe I wasn’t there

Maybe I wasn’t there
