This song has been quite popular for a while and the music video is FINALLY here!
This song isn’t like Lil Wayne’s usual songs, it has no swearing words and he isn’t rapping. That is the reason it stood out to me. His usual songs are really good but not everyone likes them, in my opinion this is his first proper song and I would actually listen to this.
You had a lot crooks try to steal your heart / Never really had luck, could never figure out how to love. When you was just a youngen your looks were so precious / But now you’re grown up so fly, it’s like a blessing / Can’t have a man look at you for five seconds without you being insecure / You never credit yourself, so when you got older it seems like came back 10 times over / Now you’re sitting here in this damn corner looking through all your thoughts and looking over your shoulder.
We have never seen this side on Weezy before and I really like it! Not that I want the Rap Master going all Singer-Songwriter but this gem shows that even the hardest of exteriors can have a gooey center.
Once an unhappy young man came to an old master and told he was very sad and asked for a solution.
The old Master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. “How does it taste?” the Master asked. “Awful,” spat the apprentice. The Master chuckled and then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and when the apprentice swirled his handful of salt into the lake, the old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”
As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the Master asked, “How does it taste?” “Good!” remarked the apprentice. “Do you taste the salt?” asked the Master. “No,” said the young man. The Master sat beside this troubled young man, took his hands, and said,
“The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount we taste the ‘pain’ depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things ….. Stop being a glass. Become a lake. Always look at the bigger picture of things.
