  • [Verse 1]
    UhI'm just so far gone
    October's own
    Please leave me alone
    Drunk off champagne
    Screamin' in the phone
    See my house is not a home
    Fuck is going on
    Where did we go wrong
    Where do we belong
    Caught up in the game and it's one I can't postpone
    Meanin' if it rains, I'm the one it's rainin' on
    When my diamond chain is on, still nothin' set in stone
    Women borrow sweaters that I spray with my cologne
    And tell me don't forget them and I promise that I won't
    Feelin' so distant from everyone I've known
    To make everybody happy I think I would need a clone
    Places we get flown, parties that we've thrown
    I've done more for this city then these rappers that have blown
    It's only been three years
    Look at how I've grown
    I'm just in my zone
    I call this shit the calm
    Yeah, but I'm the furthest thing from calm
    Dedicated to my mom and I swear my word is bond
    Everything will be ok and it won't even take that long
    You can see it in my face or even read it on my palm
    Leader of the new school, it's proven and it's known
    I'm sittin' in a chair but in the future it's a throne
    I know you like to worry, it'll be better if you don't


    You know everything gon' be all right, I promise
    I apologize to you know, put y'all in this position vent to y'all but
    40 Mama always say don’t ask permission
    Just ask forgiveness you know so uh, forgive me, yeah, yeah

    [Verse 2]
    UhAnd life is so insane
    Look what I became trying to make a name
    All my first dates are interrupted by my fame
    Because every picture taken is a fan that you can gain
    They love it when you smile unaware that it's a strain
    It's a curse you gotta live with when you born to entertain
    Women need attention, therefore, women will complain
    Develop hatred for men and say that your the one to blame
    Tryin' to enjoy myself with Tez in Miami at the game
    I just wish he knew how much it really weighed like Dwyane
    It's a weight that's on my chest whoever spotting me is playing
    So I'm lifting all alone try not to get a sprain
    Hoping Western Union doing currency exchange
    Cause my dad called and got me feeling guilty and ashamed
    Like, how I had a Rolls and I went and got a Range
    And he paying for his cigarettes with dollars and some change
    Damn, and I could only feel his pain
    Cause in Memphis Tennessee there's only so much to attain
    So I'm filling out the form at the counter once again
    He say he love me I just hope he doesn't say that shit in vain
    I'm why your girl heart is in a slang
    Call me "Heartbreak Drake", I'm the hardest one to tame
    As a man, I'm just honest; as an artist I'm a king
    With my own set of problems that be sitting on my brain
    Yea, and see, this is the thang
    What they viewing as bragging is the way that I maintain
    The shit I write while staring out the window of a plane
    Is the single-handed reason I remain me

    I said I call this shit the calm
    But I’m the furthest thing from calm
    Swear I’m putting on
    And everybody wanna ask
    What type of act you putting on, like
