Dave – My 24th Birthday Lyrics

Dave My 24th Birthday Lyrics Dave

I spent my twenty-fourth birthday with the people I love
For the diamonds, gotta see through the dust
God, I know I ain’t easy to love
I just wish that Abdulla could’ve seen what we’ve done
I retired my mum, moved out with my friends
That’s where the problems start, that it ain’t where it ends
How many single moms sacrifice it all for their kids?
Stop workin’, feel they haven’t got a reason to live
I believe that God fed the five thousand with the bread and the fish
‘Cah I seen mommy do some similar things
It can help you or harm you
Depends on how you usin’ the rope
How are we in the wrong for supplyin’ drugs?
The government’s the reason that we use ’em to cope
I made friends with a flame, and I’m used to the smoke, yeah
When we never had a thing, we still split in half
It’s the people with the least that got the biggest hearts
One of a kind, true love, it ain’t just somethin’ you find

A good girl ain’t just somethin’ you find
I get along with gold diggers, and that’s somethin’ I find
But it’s probably ‘cah now I got more money than time
My friends say they worry ’bout me, I just tell ’em, “I’m fine”
I took a look in the mirror, and now I wish I was blind
Is she the love of my life or in love with the life?
Backstabber, see the blood on your knife
My mum covered me in blood, but it was comin’ from Christ
Disaronno on the rocks, I pour a double with ice
I take trips to wind down, I ain’t readin’ at night
The only time I touch books when I’m seekin’ a flight
Can you hear me? Let me speak in the mic
God, I know I ain’t easy to like, but still I’m seekin’ the light
I spent a quarter million on renovatin’ my house
And couldn’t even live in it ’cause they was stakin’ it out
Tracker in my car, felt like double-o-seven
Whipped the Aston out of park, I knew his energy was dark
Livin’ out the Carinthia, didn’t even have a yard
But that’s where I met my teacher, and I learned to play guitar
Guess it’s written in the stars, life comes at you fast
Squeeze the Urus in a convoy of cars
We got it on us, you don’t even gotta ask
Don’t trouble us, fame comes quicker than money does
Salmon pink suit, I’m like De Niro in Casino
Life gave me lemons, I gave you a branzino, and I seasoned it
Me and Drake, we’re in a private room reasonin’
And he’s been always there when I needed him
Listen, I’m the reason why your dream girls all wiggle their asses
Drink wine, but don’t finish their glasses, snap pics in Bahamas
Sniper, do it in silence, I ain’t in all the drama

In this town, I got the crown, but I ain’t been in the plaza
Fuckin’ crosses, teams on conspiracy charges
Gardens laid out in astro’, I ain’t dealin’ with grasses
Fuck a snitch, got my guys remanded
Life of an artist, pretty women, triple-A passes
Slim thick, skin slick, I mean, it’s comin’ like it’s oil she bath in
See the harvest, see the seeds I planted
There’s a drought in the ends, I’m in Cali’ with a ting
I’ll end up postin’ a pack like I was snappin’ in the gym
Check my records, you can bang it on the wing
I lost friends, but it’s my innocence I miss
I guess ignorance is bliss
I ain’t braggin’, only rap about a fraction of my sins
My young Gs don’t count a stabbin’ if it happened in his limbs
The world is my fuckin’ office, book her a trip to the tropics
I’m feelin’ philanthropic, nigga, that’s a different topic
The GMT and EST, they’re gonna think I’m foreign
Different timezones, and that’s the way I gotta pick my watches
Streatham Vale, but you could say I live in Gotham
Way I take the Birkin and I kill a crocket, you can see the little locket
Bro, it ain’t no wonder why she finna top it
Look, I ain’t a striker, I’m a CAM ‘cah it’s in the pockets
Tell ’em to miss me
Never signed a deal, you niggas hatin’ on history, and I took the ends with me
That eight-figure check wasn’t enough to convince me
But that’s the only time I turned my back on a sixteen
Life is a game, you can’t play it in split-screen

God hasn’t given me a test I couldn’t handle yet
I don’t ever bother tryna match it when the scammers flex
Give her somethin’ money can’t buy, and that’s the challenge next
Ambidex’, problems comin’ at me from the right and left
Love is dead, enough gyal are doin’ the most
If you’re talkin’ engagement, it’s probably to do with a post
I’m at that age where everybody’s gettin’ married or havin’ kids
Feel like it happened quick
Commitments, hella pressure, there’s enough of that as it is
Can’t make the same mistakes that my daddy did
‘Cah I know what the damage did
How you raise a life, and you haven’t’ lived?
But what’s livin’? Is it clubbin’ and bangin’ chicks or plannin’ trips?
Or some sort of pleasure I haven’t managed to factor in?
I guess I’ll let you know when the stats are in

Your friends get busy, the cracks start showin’
And that’s when the distance in between us start growin’
We all want it, I just wanted it more
I think this money’s exposed my flaws
The clean hearted find it harder for sure
See, most people that are wealthy, they ain’t good in their core
You either rich off of talent or exploitin’ the poor
I’m twenty-four and an adult in the eyes of the law
But still a baby in the eyes of the Lord
You see the Bible’s my sword, and the word is my shield
Stormz prayed for me, I cried
It sharpened my steel, but that’s my brother for real
Me and mummy saw the world, man, she couldn’t believe it
And to this day, that’s my biggest achievement
Did twenty-seven countries in under nine months
So when the most high says my time’s up, just tell Him that I tried
And I ain’t never switched sides, I did it for you and I
Sixteen ’til I die, S
