    Joyner Lucas feat. Elijah James – Like A River [2020]

    Elijah JamesJoyner Lucas

    [Chorus: Elijah James]
    In sweet dreams, I kid myself
    Have your love for good
    I really had hoped you’d stay
    But like the river, you just come and go
    And these things, they comfort me
    When my mind’s on you
    And I feel you comfort me
    But like the river, it just comes and goes

    [Verse 1: Joyner Lucas]
    I used to think that you was Superman when I was younger (Yeah)
    Findin’ comfort in your voice when I was down and under
    Put you on a pedestal and now I kinda wonder if that made sense
    ‘Cause I’m convinced you showed a lot of colors (Yeah)
    All them nights I was alone, I hid inside thе covers
    Used to argue with my moms whеnever I was stubborn (Facts)
    I never warmed up to the idea of a step-dad because he wasn’t you
    And you and him ain’t even like each other (Word)
    Used to bring me ‘round your girlfriends as I recall
    I thought one or two was cool, but I ain’t like ‘em all
    ‘Cause all you ever did was argue ‘bout who’s right or wrong
    And you ain’t have no job, so you would sit at home and light a bong (Yeah)
    Used to crave for your attention, but I never got it
    And everything you said we’d do is just another promise
    You had dreams of bein’ famous and I never doubted
    But I started rhymin’ to impress you, if we bein’ honest (Facts)
    But we can have some bondin’ time and maybe pow-wow
    A father/son relationship that we can smile ‘bout
    At time’s you got abusive and I had to bow down
    Or keep on makin’ music to try and compete with Bow Wow
    Your father died when you was young, I think that made a scar
    I started thinkin’ maybe that’s why you the way you are (Nah)
    End of the day, no excuse for how you played your part
    Told myself when I became a father, I’ma raise the bar (Word)
    We had a lot of fallin’ outs and didn’t talk for years
    And all them birthdays and holidays got awfully weird
    You threw me in a foster home and I was brought to tears
    Livin’ with some strangers, feelin’ anxious, I was lost and scared (Yeah)

    [Refrain: Joyner Lucas]
    And now I’m starin’ at the river tryna get across
    And all I see is apparitions of what never was
    And everything I used to wish for is dead and lost
    And if I never see your ass again, I’ll be better off
    I’ll be better off (Yeah)

    [Chorus: Elijah James & Joyner Lucas]
    You are so negative (Uh)
    And you say you know
    But you know a goddamn thing
    Like the river, you just run and go
    You say you could do good
    And better you know
    But you tried no goddamn thing
    Like the river, I’ma run from you

    [Verse 2: Joyner Lucas]
    I told myself I wouldn’t write a song, but fuck it, I did
    Oftentimes, I sit and wonder if it’s somethin’ I did
    Or maybe I was immature, but is it somethin’ I said?
    I can’t help but feel the feelin’ that there’s somethin’ I missed
    I told you somethin’ happened to me and you ain’t protect me (Yeah)
    You tried to say you ain’t believe me as you disrespect me (Facts)
    And plus, you never had my back, in fact, you may resent me in a way
    ‘Cause everythin’ I say, you try to use against me (Word)
    And I never knew your other kids, but I knew of ‘em (True)
    I’m not really sure if I like ‘em, but I do love ‘em (Do)
    Shit, I don’t even think you knew but just a few of ‘em
    ‘Cause all your baby mothers stayed away to keep you from ‘em (Word)
    You probably out fillin’ they heads with shit that’s not the truth
    You probably told ‘em that I switched up when I got some loot (Uh)
    You probably told ‘em that I’m greedy and I’m not so cool
    That I worship the devil and I sold my soul to cop a pool (Yeah)
    I worked my ass off to get rich, let’s not confuse
    I sacrificed my whole twenties just so I can move (True)
    While everybody else was chillin’, hangin’ out with crews
    I was writin’ a plan to finally win while tryin’ not to lose (True)
    I still remember signin’ my deal and you got hella funny
    And at that time, you probably figured I had hella money (Yeah)
    But I only got a small advance, so I ain’t even get a chance to hold you down
    ‘Cause then you started gettin’ jealous of me
    But I’m worth a couple million now, I turned out fine (Yeah)
    I copped my moms a big crib and went and got mine
    An indoor pool with a house made and I’m not lyin’ (Nope)
    A happy son who loves his dad, it’s about time (Yeah)

    [Refrain: Joyner Lucas]
    But I’m still starin’ at the river tryna get across
    And all I see is apparitions of what never was
    And everything I used to wish for is dead and lost
    And if I never see your ass again, then I’ll be better off
    Nigga I’ll be better off

    [Bridge: Elijah James]
    Karma comes back and it’s co-co-comin’ (Co-co-comin’)
    Treatin’ me bad and I’m ru-ru-runnin’ (Ru-ru-runnin’)
    Karma comes back and it’s co-co-comin’ (Co-co-comin’)
    Treatin’ me bad, I’m ru-ru-runnin’ (Ru-ru-runnin’)

    [Outro: Joyner Lucas]
    And congratulations, nigga, you won
    And all the love you never gave me, I can give to my son
    Eternal love to my child, we’ll forever be one
    Thanks to you, I know the man that I would never become
    Never become
