J. Cole - Love Yourz

Love yours
Love yours
No such thing

No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours (Love yours)
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing, no such thing

Heart beatin' fast, let a nigga know that he alive
Fake niggas, mad snakes
Snakes in the grass let a nigga know that he arrived
Don't be sleepin' on your level
'Cause it's beauty in the struggle, nigga (Beauty, beauty)
Goes for all y'all
It's beauty in the struggle, nigga (Beauty, beauty)
Let me explain, yeah

[Verse 1]
It's beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success
Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress
I grew up in the city and know sometimes we had less
Compared to some of my niggas
Down the block, man, we were blessed
And life can't be no fairytale, no once upon a time
But I be goddamned if a nigga don't be tryin'
So tell me, Momma please, why you be drinkin' all the time?
Does all the pain he brought you still linger in your mind?
'Cause pain still lingers on mine
On the road to riches, listen, this is what you'll find
The good news is, nigga, you came a long way
The bad news is, nigga, you went the wrong way
Think being broke was better

Cole draws back to the intro and its main themes as he comes full circle back to present day. A much wiser Cole reflects on the most important things in life, such as love and happiness. He personalizes this theme and touches on his experiences with the glamorous life that he has seemingly become disillusioned with. "As I really started to take a closer look at all that shit we want, and all the shit we need that makes us happy, I started to see for my, with my own eyes. Like wait a minute. That shit don’t feel right, that shit feel weird. And I started to notice that, all of that shit that they tried to tell us is all bullshit and it’s all wrong and it’s not what we need to make us happy. I had to go figure that shit out on my own. It’s a man right now, he got millions of fucking dollars, he got a billion dollars. He got everything that we think we need to be happy, he got it. He got money, he got the cars, he got the big ass crib, 3 or 4 of them bitches, he got the genetically impossible wife, and he got bitches. But yet, this dude is fucking miserable, he’s empty inside. But you got a family, that comes from where we come from, from this city right here, worse conditions than what we come from. They couldn’t afford to a ticket to this show tonight if they fucking wanted one. But yet somehow, they got more happiness and joy in there likes than this man will ever have in his fucking life. How is that possible? — Love." “Love Yourz” was certified platinum by the RIAA on August 17th, 2020.
