Memories Back Then (Ft.Kendrick Lamar , B.o.B. & Kris Stephens) -T.I.
HOW MANY DRINKS.
Crazy how life works. The best people get hit with the worst times. The genuine hearts are the first to be used and taken for granted. Those with sincere intentions are pushed off as too good to be true. We’re stuck in a game where “winning” gets you nowhere…We have inconsistent people expecting consistency… Liars complain that nobody is true and fakes demand loyalty. Everybody’s asking for love, but only a few are walking in it. For me, the game got old two disappointments ago, and i refuse to cheat my future worrying about things I can’t change from my past.
So today, in the present I offer three promises: I’ll trust you until you show me that I can’t. I’ll be as consistent as your efforts inspire me to be. Lastly, I’ll honor your time with the same respect I give my own. No games. No gimmicks No guile. If you can appreciate this, I can build with you; if not, I have no time for you. I’ve been through too much to play the same old game, just to keep getting the same draining results. I want more..I deserve more. So i’m holding out until I get it… Because the next time i play, i’m playing for keeps.
