"Love Yourz (Live)"

[Speech]
Ion think y'all really understand... how much this sh*t means to means to me, man y’all just-
I'm back home and y'all just sat through my whole f*ckin’ entire album and sh*t that's f*ckin' crazy, thank y'all for doing that sh*t man
I been planning this night for a long time so this sh*t is- crazy to see like- turning to reality and sh*t
And I appreciate y'all for sitting through this sh*t I want to tell y'all some sh*t
About this album so when you leave here tonight-
I know people been- people been telling me n*ggas playing the album like crazy and I appreciate it but
But we leave here tonight, I want y'all to know what this album meant to me
So when you driving home
And you playing it this week, next week, next year, whenever
You gon' always remember what this sh*t is about
What I had to go out into the world and learn- on my own
I’m coming here to tell y’all tonight this is what this album is about
And I'm taking this message across the f*ckin’ world ion' care
Here it go:
When we young
And even when we old
The world is constantly, constantly pumping us with images, and messages, about what life is about right, and what- what we need to make us happy
In the United States, we call it the American Dream right
But what does it always include?
A lot of f*cking money
A big ass house
A brand new car
A wife that's not even genetically f*ckin' possible to have and sh*t
And b*tches
And b*tches too
They tell us we need all that to be happy right
So what ends up happening?
The world is setup so that 99% of us can’t live like that, but what do we do?
We idolize the people that do live like that right?
We call them celebrities
We follow they lives
We go "oh man it looks so perfect, I want to be living like them"
And I'm coming here tonight to tell y'all I'm the same dude
That was on the other side of the fence, right here in this city, right down the f*ckin' street working at the f*cking skating rink daydreaming
Oh y'all n*ggas love the skating rink
Daydreaming about sh*t like "Man I want to live like that, I want that" right?
And then I went and got that sh*t
But I'm telling y'all this
I'm not saying that to stunt, I'm saying that to say this
When I got over there, on that side of the fence, and I started to look closer I'm telling y'all
As not f*ck J. Cole I'm telling y'all as Jermaine
As I really started to take a closer look at all that sh*t we want, and all the sh*t we need that makes us happy
I started to see for my, with my own eyes like wait a minute
That sh*t don't feel right, that sh*t feel weird
And I started to notice that, all of that sh*t that they tried to tell us is all bullsh*t and it's all wrong and it's not what we need to make us happy
I had to go figure that sh*t out on my own
And how do I know that?
How do I know that?
This is how I know that
It's a man right now in the world, he got millions of f*cking dollars, he got a billion f*ckin' dollars right
He got everything that we think we need to be happy, he got it
He got the money, he got the cars, he got the big ass crib, 3 or 4 of them b*tches, he got the genetically impossible wife, and he got b*tches. But yet, this dude is f*cking miserable right, he's empty inside, he's miserable
But you got a family, that comes from where we come from, from this city right here, worse conditions than what we come from
They couldn't afford to a ticket to this show tonight if they f*cking wanted one right?
But yet somehow, they got more happiness and joy in their life right now than this man will ever have in his life
How is that possible?
How's that even possible?
He got everything they told us we need to be happy and he's miserable
And they ain't got sh*t
But they happy
What do they got that he don't got?
(Love)
What's that?
(Love!)
That's that f*ckin' c*mberland County public education system there coming into play Goddammit
I need everyone to put your cell phones in the sky one time tonight Fayetteville we gonna light this sh*t up one time
Ay yo
A n*gga been dreaming about this sh*t

[Intro]
Love yours
Love yours
No such thing

[Chorus]
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing, no such thing

[Bridge]
Heart beatin' fast, let a n*gga know that he alive
Fake n*ggas, mad snakes
Snakes in the grass let a n*gga know that he arrived
Don't be sleepin' on your level
'Cause it's beauty in the struggle, n*gga (Beauty, beauty)
Goes for all y'all
It's beauty in the struggle, n*gga (Beauty, beauty)
Let me explain

[Verse 1]
It's beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success
Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress
I grew up in the city and though sometimes we had less
Compared to some of my n*ggas
Down the block, man, we were blessed
And life can't be no fairytale, no once upon a time
But I be goddamned if a n*gga don't be tryin'
So tell me, Momma please, why you be drinkin' all the time?
Does all the pain he brought you still linger in your mind?
sh*t
'Cause pain still lingers on mine
On the road to riches, listen, this is what you'll find
The good news is, n*gga, you came a long way
The bad news is, n*gga, you went the wrong way
Think being broke was better

[Chorus]
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
(think being broke was better)
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing, no such thing

[Verse 2]
Cause what's money without happiness?
Or hard times without the people you love?
Though I'm not sure what's 'bout to happen next
I asked for strength from the Lord up above
'Cause I've been strong so far
But I can feel my grip loosenin'
Quick, do somethin' before you lose it for good
Get it back and use it for good
And touch the people how you did like before
I'm tired of livin' with demons 'cause they always invitin' more
Think being broke was better
Now I don't mean that phrase with no disrespect
To all my n*ggas out there livin' in debt
Cashin' minimal checks, turn on the TV see a n*gga Rolex
And fantasize about a life with no stress
I mean this sh*t sincerely
And as a n*gga who was once in your shoes
Livin' with nothin' to lose, I hope one day you hear me
Always gon' be a bigger house somewhere, but n*gga feel me
Long as the people in that motherf*cker love you dearly
Always gon' be a whip that's better than the one you got
Always gon' be some clothes that's fresher than the ones you rock
Always gon' be a b*tch that's badder out there on the tours
But you ain't never gon' be happy 'til you love yours
n*gga
Love yours
Love yours

[Chorus]
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing, no such thing

[Bridge]
Heart beatin' fast, let a n*gga know that he alive
Fake n*ggas, mad snakes
Snakes in the grass let a n*gga know that he arrived
2,6, Fayetteville, Fayettenam, I f*ckin' love ya'll
My name is J. Cole, Cole World
This been some legendary sh*t man until the next time God dammit
Peace and love
