"Return of The One"

Lyrics:

[Chorus: Wave Matthews]
They’ve been waiting
Because they got love for your boy
They say I can be the greatest
So I'ma give them what they want
They’ve been waiting
‘Cause they got love for your boy
They say I can be the greatest
So I'ma give them what they want

[Verse: College Smart]
I… am… back…
You ever been so down
That you feel like you've lost your mind?
Don't wanna talk ‘cause you know that
The words will be too hard to find
And when they say “you’ll be just fine” you flip
‘Cause it feels like the millionth time?
Make you wanna just pack your shit
And quit and leave everything you had behind?
I had to... breathe… (gasp)
Hard to explain my reasoning
Got a whole lot to say, believe me
But this rap shit has never been easy
For me, see, this ain’t just a game
The story of my life is written on these pages
And I didn’t really feel right saying how I felt
When I knew all of y’all woulda thought I went crazy
But now I’m out the dark
Stopped asking myself how much time was lost
Been typing these lines ‘til my eyes are glossed
They’ll see where I been when my rhymes accost
All the cats from the past that tried to brush me off
When I gave them my time and they cut me off
My turn to be the boss, bitch, fuck the cost
Had Pav tell Wave it’s time to dust me off
‘Cause what's crazy is they just hating
'Cause they fucked around and got old
You’re goddamn right I'm frustrated
These suckas jaded my soul
But I’m married to the game, I stick to vows
I’ve been getting it in while y'all dick around
Too afraid to commit so you’re pussing out
That's why I'm coming in and y’all pulling out, woo!

[Hook: Wave Matthews]
They’ve been waiting
‘Cause they got love for your boy
They say I can be the greatest
So I'ma give them what they want
They’ve been waiting
‘Cause they got love for your boy
They say I can be the greatest
So I'ma give them what they want

[Verse: College Smart]
I remember the feeling of ripping the mic
For the first time seeing all my goals in sight
Shit was so real, my homies in crowd
We we’re dreaming of our names in lights
But something changed in me
It was stage fright, or I’m afraid of heights
But I lost my hope for life
Until I couldn’t doze at night with these poltergeists
They creeping, haunting, screaming things
I’ve seen in dreams and ceased in fear
Of being lost at sea
Or even sleeping underneath the mare
But now I see it clear
They were saying everything I needed to hear
‘Cause somewhere along the way
I conceded to believing that I couldn’t be me here
But I had to come back at last this year
And I’m packed with my gat raps, blasting ears
On track, hit the gas ‘til I crash, I hear if I ain’t first, I’m last
While I’m here, I wanna go fast, have cats in the rear view mirror
I snapped my ass in gear, put fear in the past, I’m passing clear
Of my peers ‘til I’m backed with claps and cheers
And I ain’t fucking with promoters that suck to me
I’ve never been down with their fuckery
Only hear from them when they want something from me
Say they fuck with me but they don't fuck for free!
Cause they be on that hoe shit
But I don’t act like I know, I know, I know
‘Cause they know that I don't owe shit
I don’t owe nothing at all, at all, at all
Wave, tell ‘em

[Hook: Wave Matthews]
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea

[Verse: College Smart]
They see me the same like I ain't changed
Like I ain’t aged and I ain’t rearranged
Like after all this time, no maturation
Like I even needed their affirmation
I’m past the hating, it’s fascinating
These asses act like they know
I’m aggravated, these accusations
Exacerbating my woes
Exasperated from hoes who
Exaggerate my M.O
But they’ll have to wait while I snatch the stage
I’m draped in all black, I rob it like whoa!

[Chorus: Wave Matthews]
They’ve been waiting
‘Cause they got love for your boy
They say I can be the greatest
So I'ma give them what they want
They’ve been waiting
‘Cause they got love for your boy
They say I can be the greatest
So I'ma give them what they want

[Hook: Wave Matthews]
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
They got love for the boy, yea, yea, yea
