Lil Wayne – Happen To You

Don’t ever think that it can’t happen to you, you
You gotta stand on your own two, win or lose
And if it gets too hard to face the truth
You got to grow to what you go through, yeah


I need a bandage for the damage I’ve been through
I’ve been knocked down but I managed to improve
Only real competition is myself


She’s stuck in my brain storm, try not to get rained on
I put all these rings on and I look like I’m flame throwing
And I put all my chains on and it look like a snakecharm
I was down on my dick, everybody was hissing
Now I’m trying to keep these snakes up out my garden
Put your ear up to and [?] somebody snoring
Carolina blue sorta look like Jordan’s
Let’s get high for Nipsey and pop a blue dolphin
And yes I gotta keep these snakes up out my garden
But keep that Mamba Mentality regardless
‘Cause I know harder times are waiting for me in the future
All I can do is stay in my lane and put my gear in neutral


Don’t ever think that it can’t happen to you, to you
You gotta stand on your own two, win or lose
And if it gets too hard to face the truth
You got to grow to what you go through, yeah


I need a bandage for the damage I’ve been through
I’ve been knocked down but I managed to improve
Only real competition is myself, myself
You need a bandage for the damage you’ve been through
You’ve been knocked down but you managed to improve
Only real competition is in you


I’m caught in a thunderstorm
I look up in the sky, I’m pouring
I’ma need me a lucky charm
I need it easier than Sunday morning
I keep me a firearm ’cause I always think I’m at harm
But it ain’t no smoke [?] without ringing my fire alarm
On gang, on God, on moms
[?]
[?] I jumped
And when I hit the ground I sunk
Yeah they thought I was down, I’m up
I was lost now I’m found, what’s up
I came too far to give up
When I was down on my dick
Everybody was missing, they thought I would miss them
But I got in that kitchen and cooked up this wisdom
I started a system
If you really love your niggas you’d never risk them, yeah


Don’t ever think that it can’t happen to you, yeah
You gotta stand on your own two, win or lose, yeah
And if it gets too hard to face the truth
You got to grow to what you go through, yeah


I need a bandage for the damage I’ve been through
I’ve been knocked down but I managed to improve
Only real competition is myself, myself
You need a bandage for the damage
I’ve been knocked down, knocked down but I manage
Only real competition is myself
Only real competition is myself
