Growing Apart
by Kendrick Lamar

Where are we going, why are we slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now
Smoke to it nigga, smoke to it nigga
Where are we going, we should be slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now

That’s what she said to me
That place I used to call home is just a bed to me
We don’t even sleep, neighbors can hear her weep
Meanwhile I’m in these streets with everybody, I’m trying to get it
And she know they got me, I watch her feelings watch me
As they staring with the saddest eyes of loneliness
Look each other in the face and barely blink
Tried to make it right but the pen ran out of ink
So if my letters don’t reach you, I hope these lyrics in sync

Where are we going, why are we slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now

That’s what it said to me but the place I call ambition now dead to me
Gone and forgotten, I’m off track like Dale Earnhardt, my liver rotten
Alcoholic tripping, fucking bad bitches and they got bad intentions
Club night, guys and dolls, balling out but I’m about to drop the ball
I’m calling out for help, my engineer called
Told me come to the studio but I wanna tell him nah

Where are we going, why are we slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now

That’s what he said to but that place we call Heaven is unfair to me
Only 144 can go, seven billion people on planet Earth today
Is there something that I don’t know
I know to follow Him rather than follow people or follow vanity
‘Cause that means I’m following evil, guess I’m following evil
I should follow cathedral, blessings I need but live like I don’t need you

Where are we going, why are we slowing down
Where are you going, we should be growing now

So in conclusion, we all seem to stumble, planning our own demise
Forgetting the big picture and making it wallet size
So to what is important in my life, I apologize
I promise to stay faithful, focused and sanctified
We all get distracted
The question is would you bounce back or bounce backwards?
Would you not know how to act or take action? It’s just a part of life
And if your vision’s impaired, you probably lose it all tonight

Trying to visualize how to get it right but my vision’s so blurry
Trying to slow it down, stay close to the ground but we’re always in a hurry
And if I could make this world spin a little slower then I would
Then we could grow a little closer, I think we’re getting closer
I think we’re getting closer…

I don't want to sound like one of those "I used to know them before anybody else did" type of person but I seriously remember being in high school and listening to his song "she needs me" almost religiously and asking people if they knew who Kendrick Lamar was and everybody would be like "no who's that" and then he blew up out of no where with his swimming pools and that one other song. Good times :,)

when I feel the anxiety building inside..I turn this song on and start to feel better. You can't put a title on that.
