Justin Stone

"Long Time Coming"

Yo, never conversin' with my critics, I won't give 'em time of day
I'm writing different from the rest, leave my incision in the game
Heart into this music with my face up in the frame
'Cause you ain't never seen a white kid do this I like I can
Moved to Columbus, now all of Ohio show me love
If we talkin' hometown artist that will make it—I'm the one
Perception is what you see
Nobody had my vision back when I was writin' in that class, I never paid attention
Tearin' down the stage—forget about a desk job
Gettin' girls and chasin' dreams, swear I got the best job
I ain't making money, but I swear I got some perks
Tryna land a deal before they throw me in a hearse
Tell that label I don't need 'em, loving all this freedom
All my fans are gettin' hungry so I got music to feed 'em
These girls be gettin' thirsty, brought some Aquafina
On the stage, you make it rain
Like reenacting Katrina, hello
Señorita—My name is Justin, where you from?
Maybe I could make you mine—well, if you don't break my funds
Heard that I was fluent in French, she must be speaking tongues
Crazy how a year ago nobody showed me love
Now they do
Everybody in my city coming through
Put Ohio on my back, I've been grinding—where were you?
When I didn't have the fanbase and I didn't have the buzz
Now these women hit me up because they know what I'll become
And that's BS, so I don't respond to their text
Living in the moment, down for whatever is next
I've been on a new high and I'm loving the view
To have a good time, I don't need that vodka with juice
Complacent is all you is, you just try to be like everyone
I'm just tryna be myself
You won't find another one
Writin' 'bout my life and my perception that I see
Used to wanna be like them and now I wanna be like me
Bringing content back to music, God given gift and I use it
Facing all these demons, get that money or you lose it
Had to take a risk—I threw it in
Walking in like, "Who is him?"
I'm the one you're 'bout know, so I don't need your compliments
Faking all this confidence until I actually got it
Paying all my bills tend to empty out my wallets
That's cool, I'm getting by, made a killing genocide
I'll be making six figures in my prime but it's gonna take some time to get where I wanna be
Remember nobody but my brother had faith in me
Now they tell me all the time that I'm blowing up the scene
Man, I feel like Michael Bay, like I'm Scruby on this beat
Ohio, I made it back
In the city that I grew up in
You think you are family but you are just some common kin, no mannequin
I'm Anakin, using force, you can't handle him
Ballin' on these rookies, play you suckers like a mandolin
I'll let the fame ride out when it's suppose to
I'm sorry ladies, you're the ones I can't get close to
I'll show you love, but I can never really stay
'Cause I have some dreams of flyin' different cities everyday
I can't stay around and settle down, I got things to pursue
If you're down and you support me, baby, you'll be coming too
Let's be real, I'm bouta make it
Long time coming
Weren't with me from the jump—won't be there when I am somethin', what up
