J. COLE - Show Me Something Lyrics

(Intro)
Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, uh!

(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall,
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll,
this shit is on my mind,
asking for the lord to show me all my signs,
Show me something (uh)
Cause I'm trynna find something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (yeah)

(Verse 1)
I sit and reminisce on them niggas no longer here,
and how I used to hit the mall and ya was always there,
I sit and think how I didn't grow up with my father there,
no need to cry cause it only made me stronger yea,
i watched my brother get in trouble with the law and yea,
that shit cut me like I was sitting in a barber chair,
cause I don't want to see *him* locked up in them bars in there,
and I don't want to see him stretched out in a coffin yea,
I'm wishing I can move my momma out so far from here,
I know that she deserve much better and she worked hard as hell,
that's why you never see me settle cause they want us here,
I'm trynna side step the devil but he heartless yea,
but just know that I'm a rebel and yo it's almost here,
I'm talking bout the revolution I am Paul Revere.
so dry your eyes momma please you can pause them tears
cause I promise I'm gon get us outta here,
I'm gonna get us outta here

(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall,
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll,
this shit is on my mind,
asking for the lord to show me all my signs,
Show me something (uh)
Cause I'm trynna find something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (yeah)

(Verse 2)
I swear I'm praying for my niggas when I say grace,
I know them niggas don't care who they hit they spray strays,
But lord please protect my family cause if they graze,
niggas is loading up that ammi and them A-K's,
I know it's wrong and that revenge is all in your hands,
but last night I heard they robbed and killed an old man,
now if they cold enough to take a life that's innocent,
I know that they could give a fuck whether I live and shit,
and so I'm asking you if you can hold me down lord,
be my umbrella-ella-ella in this down pour,
I know you never ever ever let me drown or,
won't let that devil ever ever win this round naw,
and though I stray from you, you know that my heart is good,
and I know I ain't exactly living how I probly should,
and I'm a try to act better like it's Hollywood,
niggas congratulate me I just tell them God is good,
God is good

(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall,
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll,
this shit is on my mind,
asking for the lord to show me all my signs,
Show me something (uh)
Cause I'm trynna find something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (yeah)

(Verse 3)
yea, huh, yea my niggas drug dealing in the trap,
I'm tellin you wake up nigga it's a trap,
you set up and to them young mothers fed up,
just keep your head up,
don't let up,
you fall you get up,
you make your bed up that you sleep in,
fake rappers ain't practicing what they preaching,
they tell you hit the trap while they relaxing on the beach and,
I'm here to spit the facts,
a nigga backflipped off the deep end,
and smell this shit for what it is,
not kells but I love the kids,
and so I make the songs to let em know that they important,
cause them racist teachers couldn't give a fuck bout wat they score is,
so they try to get them hands up on them grants like horace,
now slanging for you know it cops is knocking they got warrants,
damn!, uh, and how he running for it,
damn!, yea and now the cops is running for him damn! yea
and now he finally slowing down,
hands behind your head, lay down on the ground, nigga.

(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall,
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll,
this shit is on my mind,
asking for the lord to show me all my signs,
Show me something (uh)
Cause I'm trynna find something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (uh)
I'm lost can you show me something (yeah)

Show me something..
