​Change My Life (Been There Done It)

Been there, done it played all the games

Now things done changed

And I’m not the same

Had to lose it all, even my brain

Had to take a fall, just to see what’s sane

Love is serious gotta do for self

What’s right for me

Cause won’t nobody else

Cats steady getting drunk

They always getting high

I’ll let you walk on by

Change my life

I was acting kind of savage

And  I had a few habits

That left me kind of damaged

Plus I didn’t even know who I was

We was just kicking it

And dude was the same as you

Didn’t think you’d take it as work to do

Thought we could combine and take a few

Went to your tip and I met your whole crew

Just a few blocks from mine this is cool

Then they start posting up

And I’m giving you eyes

My mind keeps telling me

“We’re cool with these guys”

Now Imma get blasted

Cause my minds on fade

Then you say we gon be renegades

Been there, done it played all the games

Now things done changed

And I’m not the same

Had to lose it all, even my brain

Had to take a fall, just to see what’s sane

Love is serious gotta do for self

What’s right for me

Cause won’t nobody else

Cats steady getting drunk

They always getting high

I’ll let you walk on by

Change my life

Glad you recognized that Friday Knight is made

And I didn’t understand this game I played

I wish we could’ve talked and I

I wish  you could’ve stayed

But all the dudes all around got in the way

Knew you had skills and you like to rap

But the streets came in between all of that

You were here and

I was there

Should’ve sown it up and been everywhere

Been there, done it played all the games

Now things done changed

And I’m not the same

Had to lose it all, even my brain

Had to take a fall, just to see what’s sane

Love is serious gotta do for self

What’s right for me

Cause won’t nobody else

Cats steady getting drunk

They always getting high

I’ll let you walk on by

Change my life

And I thought we could be a family

And it almost took my life

Bought a ticket to hell

And now nothings right

Bullshit I can smell

And people dump it at night

So I beat and write til

My shit is tight

Been there, done it played all the games

Now things done changed

And I’m not the same

Had to lose it all, even my brain

Had to take a fall, just to see what’s sane

Love is serious gotta do for self

What’s right for me

Cause won’t nobody else

Cats steady getting drunk

They always getting high

I’ll let you walk on by

Change my life

Sometimes I lose my mind

And just ignore the signs

It’s the sublime refined

Until a quarter past nine

I spit these lines in time

I’m just  a fine design

This shit is wax perhaps

You’ll love me long and strong

I kill these tracks like maps

I’m staying on like Bond

True facts like nutrician

On my cereal box

Sly fox moving through your mind

Like the time in your watch

Cause I be on some next level shit

And you’ll never understand

And never get a grip

Or get to see the plan

I trip on these fools lives

And I could never be the man

Struggle and I strive

For nickels and dimes and

I’m doing petty crimes and

I’m steady drinking wine

Caught up in the life that

They say I can’t have

Making me mad

I wanna break the glass

Been there, done it played all the games

Now things done changed

And I’m not the same

Had to lose it all, even my brain

Had to take a fall, just to see what’s sane

Love is serious gotta do for self

What’s right for me

Cause won’t nobody else

Cats steady getting drunk

They always getting high

I’ll let you walk on by

Change my life
