Omar Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Hey man!
Aye man, aye yo you
Come here man, come here man
Let me holla at you for a second
Hey man, say man
Aye!
I see you round the way
You can try to hide your face
But they know your secrets
Ooh
You been lying for a long time
Tryna turn your wrongs right
But what's the use? 'Cause you can't keep it (Secrets)
You didn't do it got the wrong guy
I'm just tryna make these songs cry
Let you know you ain't gotta die for your people (For your partner 'nem)
You just wanna live a long life
Wrong place at the wrong time
Have a brother working 5 to 9 just to keep it
You get that?
It's 5 below, you gone ride or no?
I gotta know, it's far from over
Too far from over, too far from sober
Got up off the sofa
Life go up and down like a roller coaster
You ain't know? Boy, you comatose
Love will get you high, you can't overdose
Life will get you high, you can't overdose
We seen teens face down on the curb
I seen fiends not fight the urge
Type of scenes make your stomach turn
Type to make the sound of the trumpet yearn to burn
I'm sorry, I gotta leave right now
Hate to go, I got somewhere to be right now
Can't control and it's got a hold of me right now
I gotta go
On the loose on the run right now
Goose egg to the truth I'm the one right now
Silly nigga ain't pay attention looking dumb right now
What you gone do if the Lord rain down right now?
Came up, strike down, lose your life right now
Talking bout keep it short, fuck your height right now
It's something 'bout the music get me hype right now
I'm just cruising through the night looking for light right now
It's 5 below, you gone ride or no?
I gotta know, it's far from over
Too far from over, too far from sober
Got up off the sofa
Life go up and down like a roller coaster
You ain't know? Boy, you comatose
Love will get you high, you can't overdose
Life will get you high, you can't overdose
Yeah!
Yeah, this the Morning Heat with Big Riq, man
We rocking into this new, this new new jam, man
We gon' keep it going all day long, man
We gon' keep it playing, keep it it in rotation




Everybody keep your head up
Yeah!
