Destiny
Omar Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You know I cannot be caught up in all of those conversations
You been having cause I'm thought of as someone who's been misplaced
Some bad habits and that's tragic
Won't say those things to my face
Let you have it how you acting is really just a disgrace
Look
I cannot be caught up in all of those conversations
You been having cause I'm thought of as someone who's been misplaced
Some bad habits and that's tragic
Won't say those things to my face
Let you have it how you acting is really just a disgrace
Look
Whole lotta things that we been through
Tried to get over it bet you can relate it ain't easy too
Plenty problems faced the solution used to be and you
But that ain't the case no more
Is the love there I ain't so sure
That wasn't the path we was aiming for
Love darts thrown
Gotta aim them more
But don't keep your eyes close
You hate taking risk but life's a trip and baby I know
You really just tired of that
I somewhat admire that
Knowing you deserve more but have no clue where to find it at
You know I cannot be caught up in all of those conversations
You been having cause I'm thought of as someone who's been misplaced
Some bad habits and that's tragic
Won't say those things to my face
Let you have it how you acting is really just a disgrace
Look
I cannot be caught up in all of those conversations
You been having cause I'm thought of as someone who's been misplaced
Some bad habits and that's tragic
Won't say those things to my face
Let you have it how you acting is really just a disgrace
Look
Topic of discussion when you with your friends
Trying break some news like you CNN
What you see in him that question rhetorical
Based on our timeline our love was historical
But Shawty want more from you
Gotta home improve
Stella got her groove now she acting bad
Girl you know I changed don't bring up my past when you mad
Hold up
Bad habits Can't shake
Like Harlem kids with no grace
Fucks to give I misplaced can't find em
Know you rather be on somebodies island
Unwinding
Know I can't get caught up like Usher Raymond
Got it bad that's an understatement
Acting flagrant
Now she for the streets the pavement
You know I cannot be caught up in all of those conversations
You been having cause I'm thought of as someone who's been misplaced
Some bad habits and that's tragic
Won't say those things to my face
Let you have it how you acting is really just a disgrace
Look
I cannot be caught up in all of those conversations
You been having cause I'm thought of as someone who's been misplaced
Some bad habits and that's tragic
Won't say those things to my face




Let you have it how you acting is really just a disgrace
Look
