Keep the Family Close
Drake Lyrics


All of my "let's just be friends"
Are friends I don't have anymore
How do you not check on me when things go wrong?
Guess I should have tried to keep my family closer, much closer
All of my "let's just be friends"
Are friends I don't have anymore
Guess it's what they say you need family for
'Cause I can't depend on you anymore

Always saw you for what you could have been
Ever since you met me like when Chrysler made that one car
That looked just like a Bentley I
Always saw you for what you could have been
And even when it's business with you it's personal again
I knew you before you made ends meet
And now were meeting out end

And it's all because you chose a side
You're supposed to put your pride aside and ride for me
Guess it wasn't time
And of course you went and chose a side that wasn't mine

You're so predictable, I hate people like you
Kennedy Road taught me not to trust people like you
How you supposed to figure out what I'm goin' through?
You can't even figure out what's going on with you
You judged me before you met me, yeah, it figures
I make all the players anthems for the real niggas
With my Dad out in Tennessee is where I belong
Out here in L.A. I don't know what's going on

I don't know what's going on
And it's all because you chose a side
You're supposed to put your pride aside and ride for me
Guess it wasn't time, yeah
And of course you went and chose a side that wasn't mine

You sit and you pray hoping that the stars align
My luck is a sure thing 'cause I'm living right
When I needed you you couldn't give me any advice
You always had something to say every other time
Everybody that I met on the way tries to get in the way
I'm fooding and serving tomorrow like I'm working minimum wage
Someone up there must just love testing my patience
Someone up there must be in need of some entertainment
Forgiveness for your ways
If I ever loved you I'll always love you, that's how I was raised
Same way I'm right here still feeling a way
Same way I'm realizing on a day to day that

All of my "let's just be friends"
Are friends I don't have anymore
How do you not check on me when things go wrong?
Guess I should have tried to keep my family closer, much closer
All of my "let's just be friends"
Are friends I don't have anymore
Guess it's what they say you need family for
'Cause I can't depend on you anymore
Much closer

Anytime people want to start problems
It's like "for real, are you dumb?"
You know who mans are
I'm not afraid no gyal heart man
And I'm not afraid of no cyattie
And I'm not afraid of no waste yute neither
So anybody who want it can get it
Seh feh

Lyrics:
It's a little chilly out there
How you can stand there is beyond me
All of my "let's just be friends" are friends I don't have anymore
How do you not check on me when things go wrong
Guess I should've tried to keep my family closer
Much closer
All of my "let's just be friends" are friends I don't have anymore
Guess that's what they say you need family for
Cause I can't depend on you anymore
Always saw you for what you could've been
Ever since you met me
Like when Chrysler made that one car that looked just like the Bentley
I always saw you for what you could've been
And even when it's business with you it's personal again
I knew you before you made ends meet now were meeting our ends
And its all because you chose a side
You're supposed to put your pride aside and ride for me
Guess it wasn't time
And of course you went and chose a side that wasn't mine
You're so predictable I hate people like you

Forgiveness for your ways
If I ever loved ya, I'll always love ya that's how I was raised
Same way I'm right here still feeling the wave
Same way I'm realizing on a day to day
All of my "let's just be friends" are friends I don't have anymore
How do you not check on me when things go wrong
Guess I should've tried to keep my family closer

And I'm not afraid of no catty
And I'm not afraid of no waste neither
So anybody who want it can get it
Its that fact

Tradução em português 🇧🇷

Manter a Família Por Perto
Está um pouco frio lá fora
Como você consegue ficar lá é algo que eu não consigo entender

Todas aquelas a quem eu disse para sermos apenas amigos, são amigas que eu não tenho mais
Por que vocês não ligam pra mim quando as coisas dão errado
Acho que eu deveria manter minha família mais próxima
Muito mais próxima
Todas aquelas a quem eu disse para sermos apenas amigos, são amigas que eu não tenho mais
Acho que é isso quando dizem você precisa da sua família
Porque eu não posso mais depender de você

Sempre vi o que você poderia se tornar
Desde quando você me conheceu
Tipo quando a Chrysler fez aquele carro que parecia um Bentley
Sempre vi o que você poderia se tornar
E mesmo quando são negócios com você, é pessoal novamente
Eu te conheci antes de você conseguir, agora estamos encontrando nossos objetivos

E tudo isso porque você escolheu um lado
Você devia ter colocado seu orgulho de lado e ficado comigo
Acho que não era o tempo certo
E claro que você foi e escolheu um lado que não foi o meu

Você é tão previsível, odeio gente como você
Kennedy Road me ensinou a não confiar em gente como você
Como você vai entender o que estou passando
Você nem consegue entender o que está havendo com você
Você me julga antes de me conhecer, é, funciona
Eu faço hinos de jogadores para os verdadeiros
Com meu pai em Tennessee, é onde eu pertenço
Aqui em L.A., eu não sei como as coisas funcionam
Eu não sei o que está havendo

E tudo isso porque você escolheu um lado
Você devia ter colocado seu orgulho de lado e ficado comigo
Acho que não era o tempo certo
E claro que você foi e escolheu um lado que não foi o meu

Você se senta e reza esperando que as estrelas se alinhem
Minha sorte é uma certeza pois estou vivendo corretamente
Quando precisei de você, você não pode me dar nnenhum conselho
Mas você sempre tem algo a dizer em outras horas
Todos que eu conheci no caminho tentam ficar no meu caminho
Eu alimento e sirvo todos como se eu estivesse ganhando um salário mínimo
Alguém lá de cima deve amar testar minha paciência
Alguém lá de cima deve estar precisando de entretenimento
Perdão pelos seus caminhos
Se um dia te amei, eu sempre te amarei, é assim que fui criado
Estou aqui do mesmo jeito, seguindo meu caminho
Estou aqui do mesmo jeito, tentando entender dia após dia

Todas aquelas a quem eu disse para sermos apenas amigos, são amigas que eu não tenho mais
Por que vocês não ligam pra mim quando as coisas dão errado
Acho que eu deveria manter minha família mais próxima
Muito mais próxima
Todas aquelas a quem eu disse para sermos apenas amigos, são amigas que eu não tenho mais
Acho que é isso quando dizem você precisa da sua família
Porque eu não posso mais depender de você
Muito mais perto

Toda hora as pessoas querem criar problemas
É tipo: Sério mesmo, você é burro?
Você sabe quem é esse homem
Eu não tenho medo de nenhum homem com coração de mulherzinha
Não tenho medo de nenhuma vagabunda
Não tenho medo de nenhum jovenzinho
Então quem quiser vai ter
Pode apostar
