It's not a diss song
It's just a real song
Feel me?

I heard ************s saying they made Hov
Made Hov say, "Okay, so make another Hov."
*****s wasn't playing they day role
So we parted ways like Ben and J-Lo
I should a been did it, but I been in a daze though
I put friends over business end of the day though
But when friends, business interests as they go
Ain't nothing left to say though
I guess we forgot what we came fo'
Should a stayed in food and beverage
Too much flossing
Too much Sam Rothstein
I ain't a *****, but I gotta divorce them
Hov have to get the shallow **** up off him
And I ain't even want to be famous
*****s is brainless to unnecessarily go through these changes
And I ain't even know how it came to this
Except that fame is
The worst drug known to man
It's stronger than heroin
When you could look in the mirror like, "There I am"
And still not see what you've become
I know I'm guilty of it too, but not like them
You lost one

[Chorus]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some (You lost one)
Sorry, I'm a champion
Sorry, I'm a champion
You lost one

I don't think it's meant to be, be
But she loves her work more than she does me
And honestly, at twenty-three
I would probably love my work more than I did she
So, B, ain't we?
It's me and her
'Cause what she prefers over me is work
And that's where we differ
So I have to give her
Free time even if it hurts
So breathe, mami, it's deserved
You've been put on this earth to be
All you can be, like the reserves
And me? My time in the army - it's served
So I have to allow she, her, time to serve
The time's now for her
In time she'll mature
And maybe we can be we again, like we were
Finally, my time's too short to share
And to ask her now, it ain't fair
So, yeah, she lost one

[Chorus]

My nephew died in the car I bought
So I'm under the belief it's partly my fault
Close my eyes and squeeze, try to block that thought
Place any burden on me, but please, not that, Lord
Time don't go back, it go forward
Can't run from the pain, go towards it
Some things can't be explained, what caused it?
Such a beautiful soul, so pure, ****
Gonna see you again, I'm sure of it
Till that time, little man, I'm nauseous
Your girlfriend's pregnant, the lord's gift
Almost lost my faith, that restored it
It's like having your life restarted
Can't wait for your child's life to be a part of it
So now I'm child-like waiting for a gift to return
When I lost you, I lost it

Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some (Colleek, I lost one)
Sorry, I'm a champion
Colleek, you're a champion
I lost one
