Nothing Lasts Forever - J. Cole

[Hook]
I tried, you tried, we tried
All of the times that we had together
We should've known nothing lasts forever
[repeat]

[Verse 1]
When this sh_t end, man it's gon' get ugly
Real real ugly, your grandmama love me
And your mama love me, little sister hugs me
Even got a few homegirls that wanna f_ck me
Soon as this sh_t end, forget about it
You been stayin' in my crib, you gotta get about it
Cause if you layin' in my bed, let's admit about it
One time f_ckin' and we no longer upset about it
Cause when this sh_t ends it's either all or nothin'
I thought you loved me, how the hell you gon' call yo cousin?
You know the diesel ass, half slow, evil ass
N_gga in that Honda showin' up with that drama
On my mama, we been through it all
From the goods to the bads, rise to the fall
You done seen me at my best, seen me at my worst
So when this sh_t ends, know it's gon' hurt

[Hook]
(You can't say we didn't try, you can't say we didn't try)
I tried, you tried, we tried
All of the times that we had together
We should've known nothing lasts forever
[repeat]

[Verse 2]
They say we won't last
I know you suspicious, but you don't ask
And I don't tell, that's where we both fell
A good n_gga gone bad
Good chick a lil mad as f_ck, she done had enough
I be, out here tryna raise my status up
But success bring b_tches, and they bad as f_ck
Ass fat as f_ck, with a little ol' waist
I ain't want the whole meal, just a little ol' taste
Should have looked both ways 'fore I crossed you
I guess I never thought I could have ever have lost you
Now I'm out stuntin' with this b_tch, you ain't about nothin'
While some n_gga learnin' all the sh_t I taught you
Damn, guess you deserve that, a new start
But deep down you know we grew apart
Long before I broke your heart, if I lost your respect
I'm just hopin' you don't look at me as somethin' you regret

[Hook]
(You can't say we didn't try, you can't say we didn't try)
I tried, you tried, we tried
All of the times that we had together
We should've known nothing lasts forever
[repeat]

[Verse 3]
I got your message I been meanin' to respond, know it's been awhile
Apologies, I ain't been around
I wanna kick it, but I know that sh_t is different now
And times have changed
Let me know if I'm out of bounds, are the lines the same?
I mean ya, lookin' good, yeah you still got it
Been reminiscin' and I'm not sure how I feel about it
Now we can say that all good things come to an end
But we know each other way too well to pretend
We went from friends to somethin' much more
To breakin' up to makin' up and f_ckin' once more
Second chances, we gave enough to finally
We gave it up, but some days I be wakin' up and wantin' one more
But what for? Maybe it's just the weather
We break each others hearts, so maybe it's for the better
Holler whenever, cause you always got a friend in me
And nothin' lasts forever, least we got these memories

[Hook]
(You can't say we didn't try, you can't say we didn't try)
I tried, you tried, we tried
All of the times that we had together
We should've known nothing lasts forever
