Drake "Closer" lyrics


[Intro: Drake talking]Yeah I remember me and, me and D used to talk about this kind of stuff all the timeLike what it's gonna be like when you get closer to your dreamsI didn't know much then but, probably tell you a lil' somethin' now

[Verse 1: Drake]Mr. Big Dreams no toleranceCut you at the house and haven't hollered sinceGet bored quicklyHe stay grownSo the p-a-tron had to get poured quicklyEx girl strippin'I can't stop herNew girl trippin' but I can't drop herCause I need somethin' to balance out the factThat it's hard to find a woman when you' talented and blackWhen you hollerin' at labelsAnd they silencing you backCause you fail to thoroughly discuss some violence in ya trackWellGunshot for the young yacht ownerSee there's everybody else then there's one top lonerFirst place is often the worst placeBut fuck it I love it here I call it my birthplaceWhenever I walk in they makin' the worst faceSurrounded by Filipinos I think of the worst caseWatch blue and green diamonds I call it the Earth faceI'm gettin' ya cake I tell you how ya dessert tasteI get a dessert plateY'all eat pedigree as ya mealI've been Urkel for some years it's better bein' JaleelThough I rock lean snap it's better bein' this realIt's better drivin' a car with the letter B in the wheelSeat backLight sayin' tank on EI got the drank on meYou better bank on meTo be the one and only nigga that you ain't gon' seeIn the club with a model spillin' drinks on meNahGimme 20 in the tank on 3I'm in the Range bumpin' Keyshia ColeSingin' off-key like (*Andreena harmonizes*)I'mma spare y'allWhy you wanna judge meI don't ever compare y'allThe city is mineI know it because I'm there y'allIt ain't even started I'm really tryna prepare y'allSpring '07 second quarter I'm droppin'With or without a label man I'm committed to poppin'And take over the summerTour to tour hoppin'I'mma meet a lot of women I'mma do a lot of shoppin'Really no other optionSpend a lot of money just to make it backAnybody I dissed in a song I don't take it backSame rappers that's all in ya face sayin' Drake is wackAre checkin' my availability just to make a trackI promise mamaI'mma do it cause I know I put you through it (I know I put you through it baby)And I just want you to sit around with ya friends at a dinner tableAnd say "My baby's famous and I know it" (yeah)And it wasn't nothin' to itI've drawn it and drew it 'til the pen was out of fluidThe ballpoint run outThen all joints come out classicRappers are fake we can all point one out

[Drake Talking]YeahI'd like to introduce you to the first lady of the ATF (uhh)Miss Andreena Mill

[Hook: Andreena Mill]Closer to my dreams I'm gettin' higherYeah I feel it in my sleepI said I'm gettin' higherYeahAnd closer to my dreamsWhoaSometimes it feels like I'll never move onCloser to my dreams

[Verse 2: Drake]LookI took a plane to Hawaii with DAnd we was trippin' off of the speed at which life progressedFrom meetin' Trey in Atlanta to doin' a cameo in his videoWhich made everything right with X (Songz)I got too many records and not enough showsFar too many rappers and not enough ___WellYou can fill the blank inThey tryna be the bestJust tryna place in the rankin'Day care play pen drop outTo grade ten drop outTo summer '05 with the grey Benz drop outCharcoal ChargerRacin' through back streetsOn my Craig David shit the Artful DodgerShola AmaI told her I'mma'Bout to get my run on so hold the commasTimes've changed now I'm older mamaAnd these niggas ain't solid they fold in dramaAnd that's the realest shit I ever wroteA compilation of mental thoughts that I never noteAnd "Hi, hatersI'm back off of hiatusHow ya album doin'?I'm gettin' cake off of my latest"Anticipated like the iPhoneRespected in any city that I roamSummertimeWintertimeDinnertimeAnytimeBet I am the nigga in my town when I arriveHome

[Outro: Drake talking]Yeah one more time 'fore we turn the lights out ladies and gentleman(Sing it to' em 'Dreena) lights 'bout to go down, curtains 'bout to close butI want y'all to enjoy yourself on the way out, yeah man(Yeah man)
