K.L.U.B. Monsta - Retro Feat. Ashley Sankey & Isaac


(Kel Ricks)
What about your first crush and first love and your first kiss/
Try to get that bad one and you turned down and your first diss/ didn’t really want to tell your mom and your stomach turnt and your first sip/ foolish almost choked to death on your first pull and your first hit/ but I know life is filled with everything you imagine/ I know sometimes its hard and even sometimes its tragic (2x) / life aint perfect guess what mine aint either therefore we can reminisce on the times we had then now you cheesing/ college time them weekends/ summerfun them long nights/ everything that went wrong/ everything that went right/


(J. Dotta)
Listen um think um missing been distance enough / was it us or was it peoples envision we trust / what about (damn) we done let them dictate what we will become / took ah lil moment, never did what it, now or feelings are numb / love is war war is love it was like we was in nam / Sargent reporting for duty Cupid help aiming my gun / and I hope dat um right hope dat um precise when um in sight / hope what I don't lack is my insight / hope dat I get ah chance to make da shit right / yep got son down like midnight / sometimes you can lose and you don't know / sometimes you can when and you lose / sometimes when you lose it's ah win cause you learn unless you dumb you can act or pretend to / real talk I ain't trying to offend you / love hurt it can cut like ah ginsu / deep it can put ah dent in yo whole view / heart probably won't react like it pose to / pose too mama never told you papa never said what dey had to go thru / probably never did really wasn't suppose to / suppose u would have change from da old u / never knew what u had till u have not / realize and u dwell what yo ass got / ego had to go cause now u trying to reverse what u got/


When the woman you loved done got married on ya/ she got two kids and a good job house fen to build some add ons/ a new bathroom/ shit back then mid twenty's she was ready you was still trying to and be friends/ that's all good but she ain't fen to fuck you forever/ you got a fear of commitment that she sees and ain't trying to wait for it to develop/ she got needs ain't getting no younger plus her new nigga always treating her special/ so the phone calls start to digress/ your relationship more on a friendship level/ All in your feelings by text no response/ not even to your email letters see her mom/ telling you about the engagement/ how they plan/ to do the wedding all outside/ in the sun/ wanna pull a Dwayne Wayne crash the wedding but he ain't no Byron/ he defending/ desire for the retro love that's vintage sometime got to let go lost her interest/ not a story with a perfect ending you failed at the race but at least you finished it/ start again tie your tennis/ then try a little tenderness/ Otis Redding / Gawd of Memphis soul/ the real king forever lives/
