J. Cole - Lost Ones Lyrics

Appears on:  Cole World: The Sideline Story

[Verse 1]
Baby girl, I can't imagine what it's like for you
I got you pregnant now inside there is a life in you
I know you wonderin' if this gon' make me think bout wifing you
Like if you had my first child would I spend my whole life with you
Now I ain't tryna pick a fight with you, I'm tryna talk
Now I ain't tryna spend the night with you
I'm kinda lost see
I've been giving it some thought lately and frankly
I'm feelin' like we ain't ready and it's… hold up now
Let me finish
Think about it baby me and you we still kids ourselves
How we gon' raise a kid by ourselves?
Handle biz by ourselves
A n*gga barely over 20, where the hell we gon' live?
Where am I gon' get that money
I refuse to bring my boy or my girl in this world
When I ain't got sh*t to give 'em
And I'm not with them n*ggas who be knocking girls up and skate out
Girl, you gotta think 'bout how the options weigh out
What's the way out?

[Chorus]
And I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes about it
And girl I know it hurt but if this world was perfect
Then we could make it work but I doubt it
And I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes about it
And girl I know it hurt but if this world was perfect
Then we could make it work but I doubt it

[Verse 2]
She said n*gga you got nerve
To come up to me talkin' bout abortion
This my body n*gga so don't think you finna force sh*t
See I knew that this is how you act, so typical
Said you love me, oh, but now you flipping like reciprocals
It figures though, should've known that you was just another n*gga
No different from them other n*ggas
Who be claiming that they love you just to get up in them draws
Knowing all the right things to say
I let you hit it raw mothaf*cker
Now I'm pregnant you don't wanna get involved muthaf*cker
Tryna take away a life, is you God mothaf*cker?
I don't think so
This a new life up in my stomach
Regardless if I'm your wife
This new life here I'ma love it
I'm ain't budging, I'll do this by my muthaf*cking self
See my momma raised me without no muthaf*cking help from a man
But I still don't understand how you could say that
Did you forget all those conversations that we had way back
Bout your father and you told me that you hate n*gga
Talkin' bout he a coward and you so glad that you ain't that n*gga
Cause he left your mama when she had you and he ain't sh*t
Here you go doin' the same sh*t
You ain't sh*t n*gga!

[Chorus]
And I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes about it
And boy that sh*t hurt
And ain't nobody perfect, still we can make it work but you doubt it
Now, I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes about it
And boy that sh*t hurt
And ain't nobody perfect, still we can make it work but you doubt it

[Verse 3]
They say everything happens for a reason
And people change like the seasons
Then grow apart
She wanted him to show his heart and say he loved her
He spoke the magic words and on the same day he f*cked her
Now she wide open
She put a ring up on his finger if she could
But he loved her cause the pussy good
But she ain't no wife though
Uh oh, she tellin' him she missed her period like typo's
He panicking, froze up like a mannequin
A life grows inside her now he asking "is it even mine"
What if this b*tch ain't even pregnant dawg
Could she be lying?
She crying crying cause he acting distant
Like "ever since I told you this, n*gga you acting different"
And all his n*ggas saying man these hoes be trapping n*ggas
Playing with n*ggas emotions like they some action figures
Swear they get pregnant for collateral
It's like extortion, man if that b*tch really pregnant
Tell her get an abortion
Uh, but what about your seed n*gga?
(What about your seed n*gga?)

And I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes about it
And I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes about it
