Dreams and nightmare
by Meek Mill
on Dreams and Nightmares (2012)
Ain't this what they've been waiting for?
I used to pray for times like this, to rhyme like this
So I had to grind like that to shine like this
In a matter of time I spent on some locked up sh*t
In the back of the paddy wagon, cuffs locked on wrists
See my dreams unfold, nightmares come true
It was time to marry the game and I said, "Yeah, I do"
If you want it you gotta see it with a clear-eyed view
Got a shorty, she tryna bless me like I said, "Achoo"
Like a n*gga sneezed, n*gga please before them triggers squeeze
I'm gettin' cream, never let them hoes get in between
Of what we started, lil' n*gga but I'm lionhearted
They love me when I was stuck and hated when I was departed
I go and get it regardless, draw it like I'm an artist
