[Dave] Last tape was iconic, rent late but I got it. No stress cuz my folk blessed me with a whole mess of that chronic. Tree trunk of that sweet skunk, never go night night don't sleep much. I grind hard get quite scarred, white russian that die hard. My god, why the rent so high, girls so cold, so the pimp won't die. Allumn goin when the temp go high, allumn know my chick so I just rotate, yes rotate, no thirst, I don't chase. That's no good I'm so good, I'm so chose, I'm so straight. Praise on high, but the papes still low, popped but its press everywhere I go. Gear lowkey but I stay in ‘Lo, when I'm low on cake, I stay indoors. No shame, that's no shame, Dave been around the world with no name. I miss my city but I love my life, when I'm in this city, that's why I'm tryna...
[Chorus] Stay in love with you all summer. I want to fall in love with you, I just want to stay in love with you.
[Chris] So look, lets make it happen. I’m forever maxing out on whatever you got to offer, I’ll give you my best. But, whatever happens I promise I’m never tapping out I’ll bring it to the altar and leave it to the ref. Let em call it, no one else. You the only one I got. So I love you to the death put God above you, no one else. Fuck the average let em have it. I promise for you my standards will insure I never perish. Long as I got you, what matters? Not a damn thing else, my love is life itself. I enjoy it to the fullest, until I’m pushing tulips. I kiss the sky and enjoy the ride, the ups and downs we take in stride. Take a good look at my life and understand exactly how I stay...
[Refrain] Though every day’s a challenge, we always seem to manage, I just want to stay in love with you. Never any satisfaction, cuz you never know what happens, I just want to stay in love with you.
[Dave] Rooftop visions of the skyline sipping on that double o seven. Sun to the east, finna come up on seven, tell them young broads peace. Nigga stumbled out the club, homie tab was a lease.
Park was a movie then we parked the caprice. Pants cuff rolled, too sharp for a crease. Niggas act the same, but its hard being me. Its easy to be a lame but its hard being g's. Put that on my last initial, that's worth a stack. Put that on my past, potential that's worth a rack. Put that on blast my album deserve a plaque, til I'm puttin on Paxton nigga, that's on my back.
