Fear
Drake Lyrics


This is why I do this shit
I think they call this, uh, venting

Yea
Look
Uh

This is me
Still the same
They want the hits
I play the game
No auto tune, but you can feel the pain
It all comes spilling out like I hit a vein
What up lil' braw
What up slumville
I hope you know that y'all the reason I have fun still
The fans thinking that we all signed for one mill
Equal opportunities rapping, that shit is unreal
That ain't how it works
That ain't that how it goes
And I been getting high to balance out the lows
And I could use a writer to balance my flows
But I never share my thoughts,
This is all a nigga knows
And every time I try, it opens up my eyes
These verses are a chance to remembered and reprized
And I would be performing just as long as I'm alive
So every word I utter will be mine

Don't believe the lies
Look me in my eyes
Please don't be scared of me
Please don't be scared of me
I remember you
This feeling isn't new
So please don't be scared of me
Please don't be scared of me

Don't take this the wrong way but
I never cried when Pac died
But I probably will when Hov does
And if my tears hold value,
Then I would drop one for every single thing he showed us
And I'll be standing in a puddle
I stay away from niggas that could land me in some trouble
And I'ma keep it honest
Am so tired of being subtle
It's just me, Forty, O, and Nich standing in a huddle
Staring at the members of my team
Who get questioned about they profit from this from million dollar scheme
Just know that am in debt for you defending all our dreams
I hope you tell your family this shit ain't what it seems
But yall the reason for a lot of my devotion
You know I spend money because spending time is hopeless
And know I pop bottles 'cause I bottle my emotions
At least I put it all in the open

Don't believe the lies
Look me in my eyes
Please don't be scared of me
Please don't be scared of me
I remember you
This feeling isn't new
So please don't be scared of me
Please don't be scared of me
Oh oh oh oh oh uh

Look
Fuck all y'all
We ignore feelings here
Premature millionaires
Welcome to my realest year
Yeah
I swear we making a killer here
I should be on top of the world here just chillin' here
Uh
But it's funny having fans
Who find you before anybody ever has the chance,
And build you up so you could be the biggest in the game
And realize when your there, sometimes the shit don't feel the same
Yeah
And plus things are just so real at home
People think I've changed just because my appeal's grown
And now security follow me everywhere
So I'm never actually am alone, I just always feel alone
I think I'm scared of what the future holds
I was wishing for some things and now am used to those
Every girl I meet thinks I'm fucking groupie hoes
The honesty of my music has left me too exposed
All my old friends think I got a new crowd
And people seem to notice every time I do smile
I guess that mean they come few and far between
Even though am living out what you would call the dream
Yeah
And my uncle ain't even messaging me
And him missing in my life is kind of messing with me
I hope this isn't one of those forever things
It's funny how money can change everything

Don't believe the lies
Look me in my eyes
Please don't be scared of me
Please don't be scared of me
I remember you
This feeling isn't new
So please don't be scared of me
Please don't be scared of me
Oh oh oh oh oh uh

[Intro]
This is why I do this shit
I think they call this "venting"

[Verse 1]
Look, this is me, still the same
They want the hits, I play the game
No auto-tune, but you can feel the pain
It all comes spilling out like I hit a vein
What up, Lil Bro? What up, Slum Ville?
I hope you know that y'all the reason I have fun still
The fans thinking that we all signed for one mil
Equal opportunity rapping, that shit is unreal
That ain't how it works, that ain't how it goes
And I been getting high just to balance out the lows
And I could use a writer just to balance out my flows
But I never share my thoughts, this is all a nigga knows
And every time I try, it opens up my eyes
These verses are a chance to be remembered and reprised
And I would be performing this as long as I'm alive
So every word I utter will be mine

[Chorus]
Don't believe the lies, look me in my eyes
Please don't be scared of me, please don't be scared of me
I remember you, this feeling isn't new
So please don't be scared of me, please don't be scared of me

[Verse 2]
(Don't take this the wrong way but, uh)
I never cried when Pac died
But I probably will when Hov does
And if my tears hold value then I would drop one
For every single thing he showed us
And I'll be standing in a puddle
I stay away from niggas that could land me in some trouble
And I'ma keep it honest, I'm so tired of being subtle
It's just me, 40, O, and Nik standing in a huddle
Staring at the members of my team
Who get questioned 'bout they profit from this million dollar scheme
Just know that am in debt for you defending all our dreams
I hope you tell your families this shit ain't what it seems
But y'all the reason for a lot of my devotion
You know I spend money because spending time is hopeless
And know I pop bottles 'cause I bottle my emotions
At least I put it all in the open

[Chorus]
Don't believe the lies, look me in my eyes
Please don't be scared of me, please don't be scared of me
I remember you, this feeling isn't new
So please don't be scared of me, please don't be scared of me

[Verse 3]
Look, fuck all y'all, we ignore feelings here
Premature millionaires, welcome to my realest year
Yeah, I swear that we making a killing here
I should be on top of the world just chilling here
But it's funny having fans
Who find you before anybody ever has the chance
And build you up, so you could be the biggest in the game
And realize when you're there, sometimes the shit don't feel the same
Yeah, and plus things are just surreal at home
People think I've changed just 'cause my appeal has grown
And now security follow me everywhere
So I never actually am alone, I just always feel alone
I think I'm scared of what the future holds
I was wishing for some things and now am used to those

[Chorus]
Don't believe the lies, look me in my eyes
Please don't be scared of me, please don't be scared of me
I remember you, this feeling isn't new
So please don't be scared of me, please don't be scared of me
