Nas, Lauryn Hill - Nobody lyrics

[Nas, Lauryn Hill - Nobody lyrics]

(Hit-Boy)

One city, one country, one state
Some place to be nobody some place to be
Some place you wouldn't know probably
Yeah, yeah

If Chappelle moved to Ghana to find
His peace then I'm rollin'
Where the service always roamin'
I'm packin' my bags and goin'
It's a challenge in that
It's a balancin' act visit beautiful places
There's more out here than the trap
Houses in Long Island, they always found 'em
House in the South, a nigga barely got out
Sunny LA, remеmber calls with Dr dre
He told mе, "Don't let the
Palm trees fool you, nigga, be safe"
Me and my higher self, we often would speak
Somehow we lost the connection
Might meet at Joshua Tree
And it's been bothering me
Too many wavy women
Gotta log outta IG, can't be my age DM'in'
(Haha)
No kiddin', it's hard to move like a civilian
I write the truth 'cause I live it
Not like you musical niggas
We did it big and they bigots
They'd rather shoot than write tickets
What it feel like to go get it? What
It feel like to go miss it?

In one city, one country, one state
Some place to be nobody some place to be
Some place you wouldn't know probably
Some place to be nobody

My dawg bought a plane
Said "Let's go to Paris"
That's where baguettes are from
French bread that's long and narrow
I like the other definition
Rectangular carats
The concept of this song is rather esoteric
This girl said in Grenada we
Should go get married
Broke the meanin' down of the Virgin Mary
And you got your own place
My favorite part of the night
When you text me that you made it home safe
(I'm home)
I'm contemplatin' at the home base
How I'm used to breakfast in the ghetto
Sippin' OJ that's a picture right there
A moment in time
Before anybody wanted a photo of mine
Before the internet energy and social decline
Destroyed the vibe
Foolin' us with the headlines
(Keepin' us blind) Vultures eat you alive
(Take heed to the signs) Wishin' I'd find

One city, one country, one state
Some place to be nobody some place to be
Some place you wouldn't know probably
Some place to be nobody (Life)

All my time has been focused
On my freedom now
Why would I join 'em when I know
That I can beat 'em now?
They put their words on me
And they can eat 'em now
That's probably why they keep on
Tellin' me I'm needed now
They tried to box me out while
Takin' what they want from me
I spent too many years
Livin' too uncomfortably
Making room for people who
Didn't like the labor
But wanted the spoils, greedy
Selfish behavior now let me give it to
You balanced and with clarity
I don't need to turn myself into a parody
I don't
I don't do the shit you do for popularity
They clearly didn't understand when I
Said "I Get Out" apparently
My awareness like Keanu in The Matrix
I'm savin' souls and y'all
Complainin' 'bout my lateness
Now it's illegal for someone
To walk in greatness they want the same shh
But they don't take risks
Now the world will get to
See it's own reflection
And the anointed can pursue
Their own direction
And if you're wrong and you're
Too proud to hear correction
Walk into the hole you dug yourself
Fuck a projection
See me in my freedom takin' all my land back
They said a lot against me
Thinkin' I'd just stand back
I got my legs beneath me, I got my hands back
A lot of people sabotaged
They couldn't stand that
I turned the other cheek
I took blow after blow
There's so much crisis in the world
'cause you reap what you sow
When you keep what you know
Is meant for someone else
The ditch you dig for them
You might just end up in yourself
I'm in the secret place
I keep a sacred space
They keep showin' their hands
But keep hidin' their face
If I'm a messenger
You block me then you block the message
So aggressive
The world you made is what you're left with
Pride and ego over love and
Truth is fuckin' reckless
Y'all niggas got a death wish
The stupid leaves me breathless

Some place to be, yeah ain't duckin' nothin'
Just might have to build my own city
Where y'all need a real
Nigga passport to enter
Ms hill, we ain't goin' nowhere
They gon' have to deal with us
Make 'em uncomfortable, hahaha, yeah
