Losing My Balance - J. Cole

"loosing My Balance"

Yea huh, yea one, two, one, two, one, two

one, two, one two uh-huh

Yea, uh

Yea uh
[Verse 1]
Miss high profile caught you shopping on Canal
I guess it makes sense it seems phony as your style
Your hair and your nails just as phony as your smile
Fake eyelashes you drew your eyebrows
It make a brother ask do you pride yourself?
Your make up like a mask trynna hide yourself
It seems on the outside you thinking you the sh_t
Put theres a soul that's inside that you don't even knew exist
So you so out of touch that the world mistreat you, rich n_ggas f_ck you and broke n_ggas beat you
Hoping this will reach you when you understand that your value aint determined by another man
Cuz right now you let them brothers get the upper hand
And you just tell them go deep like Cunningham
And you just let them OD like Len Bias
And that p_ssy so good he let his friends try it

Losing your balance, yea uh
Losing your balance, yea uh
Losing your balance, girl you losing your balance uh, yea
Don't slip don't fall, just a get a grip my n_gga hold on
Don't lose your balance, Don't lose your balance

[Verse 2]
I look around at my city this is SinVille
That boy 11yrs old and can inhale
Sometimes I ride around wondering if we in hell
Or why the cops love to throw a n_gga in jail
Im bout to lose it I just had another friend killed
Over some bullsh_t this cycle's like a windmill
I had a convo with my soul I asked it "When will, this sh_t change?"
It said boy "Just use them pen skills"-and so I write this for my n_ggas on the corner
Love you cuz you my brother so I feel I got to warn ya
This sh_t aint set up for a young brother to advance

On that note, you n_ggas playing right into their hands
Damn, better get yourself some goals, you n_ggas better dream
I know the hood raised you but theres bigger better things
And for those that passed I need a moment of silence
Yea and don't be losing your balance

Don't be losing your balance,
Don't be losing your balance, my n_gga
Don't be losing your balance, uh yea so don't slip
Don't fall just a get a grip my n_gga hold on
Don't lose your balance, uh Don't lose your balance

[Verse 3]
I got a thing for this little mama
She do it to me plus her brain is forreal imma s_cka for love I guess
Wont catch her up in the club cuz she aint into that
Kind of chick that rather rent a flick and get intimate
Say she never f_ck with thug n_ggas only gentlemen
And yea that ass is fat but whats better is her intellect
Other men ah sweat her when we walk past
Cant even blame em' I did the same when I saw that ass
Match with the thin waist, brown with a slime face
Love the conversation and the kicks was like a sensai
Now she got me chillening with her all around the clock
My homeis beefin cuz I never come around a lot
Keep on telling me I changed and things aint the same
And ever since she came around I never want to hang
They tell me that its foul how a chick will make me switch
But man I cant help it dog her mind got me whipped
I think Im losing my balance

I think Im losing my balance yea
She got me losing my balance, uh
She got me losing my balance,
But I wont slip I wont fall, just a get a grip and hold on
Losing my balance, Losing my balance
