Music: I

“We got a young brother that stands for something!
We got a young brother that believes in the all of us!
Brother Kendrick Lamar! He’s not a rapper, he’s a writer, he’s an author!
And if you read between the lines, we’ll learn how to love one another!
But you can’t do that — right on! —
I said, you can’t do that without loving yourself first.”

This is a world premiere!

I done been through a whole lot
Trial, tribulation, but I know God
Satan wanna put me in a bow tie
Praying that the holy water don’t go dry
As I look around me
So many motherfuckers wanna down me
But ain’t no nigga never drown me
In front of a dirty double-mirror they found me

And I love myself
(The world is a ghetto with big guns and picket signs)
I love myself
(But it can do what it want whenever it want, I don’t mind)
I love myself
(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)
I love myself
(One day at a time, sun gon’ shine)

Everybody looking at you crazy (Crazy)
What you gon’ do? (What you gon’ do?)
Lift up your head and keep moving (Keep moving)
Or let the paranoia haunt you? (Haunt you)
Peace to fashion police, I wear my heart
On my sleeve, let the runway start
You know the miserable do love company
What do you want from me and my scars?
Everybody lack confidence, everybody lack confidence
How many times our potential was anonymous?
How many times the city making me promises?
So I promise this

And I love myself
(The world is a ghetto with big guns and picket signs)
I love myself
(But it can do what it want whenever it want, I don’t mind)
I love myself
(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)
I love myself
(One day at a time, sun gon’ shine)

They wanna say there’s a war outside and a bomb in the street
And a gun in the hood and a mob of police
And a rock on the corner and a line full of fiends
And a bottle full of lean and a model on a scheme
These days of frustration keep y’all on tucking rotation
I duck these gold faces, post up fee-fi-fo-fum basis
Dreams of reality’s peace
Blow steam in the face of the beast
The sky can fall down, the wind can cry now
The strong in me, I still smile

And I love myself
(The world is a ghetto with big guns and picket signs)
I love myself
(But it can do what it want whenever it want, I don’t mind)
I love myself
(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)
I love myself
(One day at a time, sun gon’ shine)

Walk my bare feet (Walk my bare feet)
Down, down valley deep (Down, down valley deep)
Fee-fi-fo-fum (Fee-fi-fo-fum)
My heart undone (My heart undone)

And I love myself
(The world is a ghetto with big guns and picket signs)
I love myself
(But it can do what it want whenever it want, I don’t mind)
I love myself
(He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide)
I love myself
(One day at a time, sun gon’ shine)

I went to war last night
With an automatic weapon, don’t nobody call a medic
I’mma do it ’til I get it right
I went to war last night
I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent
Duckin’ every other blessin’, I can never see the message
I can never take the lead, I can never bob and weave
For my nigga that be letting ‘em annihilate me
And it’s evident I’m moving at a meteor speed
Finna run into a building, lay my body in the street
Keep my money in the ceiling, let my mama know I’m free
Give my story to the children and a lesson they can read
And the glory to the feeling of the holy unseen
Seen enough, make a motherfucker scream, “I love myself!”

I lost my head
I must’ve misread what the good book said
Oh woes keep me, it’s a jungle inside
Give of myself again ’til the well runs dry

Music: Four Five Seconds

I think I’ve had enough * I might get a little drunk
I say what’s on my mind * I might do a little time

Hook:

Cause all of my kindness *Is taken for weakness Now I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m just tryna make it back home by Monday mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh, that’s all I want

Woke up an optimist * Sun was shinin’, I’m positive
Then I heard you was talkin’ trash * Hold me back, I’m ’bout to spaz

And I know that you’re up tonight
Thinkin’, “How could I be so selfish?”
But you called ’bout a thousand times
Wondering where I’ve been
Now I know that you’re up tonight
Thinkin’ “How could I be so reckless?”
But I just can’t apologize
I hope you can understand

If I go to jail tonight * Promise you’ll pay my bail
See they want to buy my pride * But that just ain’t up for sale
See all of my kindness * Is taken for weaknes

Music: The Good Good

The Good Good by Snoop Lion

Spades like these occasions I love
Running round going nowhere
Glad I get to spend all your time
Probably cause I know that I’m the one that makes you smile
I love the way you say my name
And how you laugh at all the stupid things I say
It’s all lovin, no hate

Hanging out with you
While you hanging hanging on my arm
And I like it
Your hand on my back
While we drivin drivin in my car
And I like it

[Chorus:]
This is the good good
This is what people look all their lives to find
And baby we found it
Right on time
This is the good good
And now that we got it
We gotta keep it going strong
Gotta keep it going on ye
Keep it strong
Keep keep it going on ye
Keep it strong
Keep keep it going on ye

[Verse 2:]
Anytime I’m feeling alone
They’ll be a text from you on my phone
Just to say you’re thinking of me
And when we’re in the club I know it’s only me you see
Love the way you have my back
And how when I make no sense
You still understand
When nobody else can

Hanging out with you
While you hanging hanging on my arm
And I like it
Your hand on my hand
While we kissing kissin in the dark
And I like it

[Chorus:]

[Bridge:]
Oh this love
Is the best love that can ever be
And I get high on you and me
Anyone can see
This is the good good

[Chorus: x2]

Music: Stay

Stay by Rihanna

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said “Show me something”
He said “If you dare, come a little closer”

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh-Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way, I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh-Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way, I want you to stay

Ooh, Ooh-Ooh the reason I hold on
Ooh, Ooh-Ooh ’cause I need this hole gone

Funny you’re the broken one
But I’m the only one who needed saving
‘Cause when you never see the lights
It’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way, I want you to stay

Hey-Hey, Hey, stay, Aye-Aye-Aye-Aye
I want you to stay, Ooh-Ooh

Music: Stay with Me

Stay With Me by Sam Smith

Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love ’cause I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won’t you stay with me ’cause you’re all I need?
This ain’t love, it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No, it’s not a good look, gain some self-control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn’t hurt

Oh, won’t you stay with me ’cause you’re all I need?
This ain’t love, it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won’t you stay with me ’cause you’re all I need?
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won’t you stay with me ’cause you’re all I need?
This ain’t love, it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Music: I’m Not The Only One

You and me we made a vow
For better or for worse
I can’t believe you let me down
But the proof is in the way it hurts
For months on end I’ve had my doubts
Denying every tear
I wish this would be over now
But I know that I still need you here

[Chorus]
You say I’m crazy
Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done
But when you call me baby
I know I’m not the only one

You’ve been so unavailable
Now sadly I know why
Your heart is unobtainable
Even though God knows you have mine

[Chorus]
You say I’m crazy
Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done
But when you call me baby
I know I’m not the only one

I have loved you for many years
Maybe I am just not enough
You’ve made me realize my deepest fear
By lying and tearing us up

[Chorus]
You say I’m crazy
Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done
But when you call me baby
I know I’m not the only one

You say I’m crazy
Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done
But when you call me baby
I know I’m not the only one

I know I’m not the only one
I know I’m not the only one

Music: Tears Dry On Their Own

All I can ever be to you is the darkness that we knew
And this regret I got accustomed to
Once it was so right when we were at our high
Waiting for you in the hotel at night
I knew I hadn’t met my match
But every moment we could snatch
I don’t know why I got so attached
It’s my responsibility
And you don’t owe nothing to me
But to walk away I have no capacity

He walks away the sun goes down
He takes the day, but I’m grown
And in your wake, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

I don’t understand
Why do I stress the man
When there’s so many bigger things at hand
We coulda never had it all
We had to hit a wall
So this is inevitable withdrawal
Even if I stop wanting you
And perspective pushes thru
I’ll be some next man’s other woman soon

I can’t play myself again
I should just be my own best friend
Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men

He walks away the sun goes down
He takes the day, but I’m grown
And in your wake, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

So we are history your shadow covers me, the sky above ablaze

He walks away the sun goes down
He takes the day, but I’m grown
And in your wake, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own

I wish I could say no regrets
And no emotional debts
Cos as we kiss goodbye the sun sets
So we are history
Your shadow covers me
The sky above a blaze that only lovers see

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day but I’m grown
And in your wake, my blue shade
My tears dry on their own

He walks away the sun goes down
He takes the day, but I’m grown
And in your wake, in this blue shade
My tears dry on their own
