adam warrock – this song lyrics

Loading...

[intro/chorus]
and those lonely nights
that’s when i stay up and write this song
this song

[verse 1: adam warrock]
yeah, maybe this beat will make me feel better
maybe i can write it out in the form of a letter
sign it to the internet a couple a times
i might sell some t-shirts to try to make some cheddar
but i know that this business is so shady
industry rule four-thousand-and-eighty-one:
nothing is promised
all i can do is work hard and be honest
with the music that i wanna do and try my best yeah
unh, it’s like i threw away my future
they say i might break big with the right producer
but everything i’d like to touch is like midas medusa
and these hands used ta, used to be so strong
cause i almost ran out of hope a couple of times
i only been here for a couple a years
i’ve been writing and rapping since 1999
and i find nothing’s ever measured
if it isn’t ever tried and i

[chorus 1]
and those lonely nights
that’s when i stay up and write this song
(that’s when i stay up and write this song)
this song uh
and those lonely nights, yeah
that’s when i stay up and write this song
(that’s when i’m sittin’ and writing this song)
this song

[verse 2]
yeah that’s when i feel it in my chest
and i know that i’m blessed
because i make music so honest and honestly
i promised these few things my mama she told me
you gotta do it so you try and be the best
so i do that, got a couple fans
do my best and stay true to that, true that
i rarely look back sometimes i gotta laugh
cause these people dig my tracks
but they say that hate rap
and i don’t even rap, man i’m singing on these tracks
off-key because the d-mn melody distracts
from what i truly wanna say and if you missed it
probably wasn’t even important cause i don’t really revisit it
each song’s a tombstone; a crypt for those feelings
that i’m not fully equipped to deal with
and it screams out my belly and throat until it quits
then i just post it up and say forget about it

[chorus 2]
and those lonely nights (yeah)
that’s when i stay up and write this song
(that’s when i stay up and write this song)
this song unh
those lonely nights (yeah)
that’s when i stay up and write this song
(that’s when i find myself writing this song)
this song

[verse 3]
check it, i’ve got fans who send me telegrams
they tell me, “adam, man, i don’t understand
why you seem so down cause your future’s so bright.”
man, i’m tellin’ y’all: it’s hard to sleep at night
while i’m tossin’ and turnin’ because the fire is burning
and i ain’t earning enough to pay the bills that pile up
and the only thing that makes me feel better
is sendin’ another song to mikal khill
and hear him say he hates it
and so i got up and wrote this
quote this: after this whole ride is over
hopeless cause i ain’t hova
i’m just a man doin’ all that he can
to survive long enough to write another d-mn song

[chorus 3]
and those lonely nights (yeah)
that’s when i stay up and write this song
(that’s when i’m losin’ my sleep and writing this song)
this song (yeah)
those lonely nights (yeah, what?)
that’s when i stay up and write this song
(that’s when i’m stayin’ up and writin’ this song)
this song (yeah yeah)

and ya don’t stop
cause ya can’t stop
unh, joey mitch-ll never lies
