G-Eazy & Anthony Hamilton – Gerald Lyrics

You know?
Yeah

Am I still the Gerald that I been from the beginning?
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions
Should I be rapping, should I be singing?
Should he be losing, should he be winning?
Should he keep [?] still in a knife in it?
Keep dissing, that’s just adding fuel to my engine
Is he still the Gerald that he been from the beginning?
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions (Yeah, uh)

Somebody in my life was a best friend to me
Been a minute since my guys sent a text to me
It really say something, think he’s judging me
Feel ten miles apart when you’re standing next to me
Lifestyles change, people grow apart
Won’t happen overnight, this shit had the slowest start
Different shit matter when you open up your heart
Addiction to celebrity could choke you from the start
Crazier than heroine, yeah, this shit hooks you
My uncle died of that, my dad told me, that’s a good dude
Never met him, only heard stories where it took you
And I’m just tryna live up to what they think that I should do
‘Cause he’s got potential, he’s that precious
He’s that special, he could be Elvis
He should be the biggest, he should put his career first
But no one ever told me, I should go and put me first, yeah

Am I still the Gerald that I been from the beginning?
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions
Should I be rapping, should I be singing?
Should he be losing, should he be winning?
Should he keep [?] still in a knife in it?
Keep dissing, that’s just adding fuel to my engine
Is he still the Gerald that he been from the beginning?
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions (Yeah, for real)

How could he feel lonely when he’s always surrounded?
How could he not indulge when he’s always around it?
How come he does drugs, could he still do it without it?
How could he fly to heights, somehow still staying grounded?
Some days I really feel like, I could’ve run for president
Some days I wanna be a self-destructive degenerate
Getting high, wasting my time, I’m not regretting it
People talking ’bout what I should be doing instead of it
But this is my life, at night I go to bed with it
Got some real demons, can’t seem to cut off the head of it
Pay for my decisions, feel like I just lost a bet with it
Maybe my success has been going straight to my head a bit
Maybe I’ve been listening too much
Maybe I’ve been drinking all the Kool-Aid and fruit punch
Maybe I got it, just stop tryna find help
Stop looking outside, and look for it in myself (For real)

Am I still the Gerald that I been from the beginning?
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions
Should I be rapping, should I be singing?
Should he be losing, should he be winning?
Should he keep [?] still in a knife in it?
Keep dissing, that’s just adding fuel to my engine
Is he still the Gerald that he been from the beginning?
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions (I’m me, for real)

Always wash your [?], learn through repetition
Deliver platinum albums, you take it as a given?
Songs don’t write themselves, how you think they’re getting written?
Wanna judge me? Then come trade me my position
Everyone is talking, everyone’s reacting
Take it all for granted, think these things just happen
Every stop, hopping off and on the bandwaggon
Hate the way I’m living, criticize my actions
Bought moms a house and the town was hella proud of it
Booked the next day, I did some shit you got a problem with
Almost fucked up a deal, was high and I was out of it
On a conference call on mushrooms, my words slurred a bit
Mind/By myself, who I am, all the shit I done
Right now I’m top two selling rappers where I’m from
And I ain’t number two, that only leaves one
I go at us, the biggest fucking artist when I’m done, for real

Is he still the Gerald that he been from the beginning? (Been from the beginning, been from the beginning)
Ask ten people, you’ll get ten different opinions (Ten different opinions, ten, ten different opinions)
Is he still the Gerald that he been from the beginning? (Been from the beginning, been from the beginning)
Is he still the Gerald that he been from the beginning? (I go at us, the biggest fucking artist when I’m done, for real)

Haha
Your side (These Things Happen Too)
Tell me you’ll love me for a million years
Then if it don’t work out
Then you can tell me goodbye
