"Lost cause" in lyrics
Okey, let's hit the breaks, everything so awkward.
And want to help with something both night and day
My luck with lost cause, already wait by the doors.
But everything will be, everything will be okay.
I put the pistol to my head, and say a prayer
I see visions of me dead, Lord are you there?
Then tell me am I lost cause I'm lonely
I thought I had friends but in the end a nigga dies lonely
I'd rather be alone than put up with you at all hours
Pretending to get along when in reality you don't even tempt me
This is a lost cause
If you want to come back to me, I tell you at once
