Aiko, Jhene - Stay Ready (What A Life) Lyrics

[Jhene Aiko:]
We do not exist in
Any other instant
Here in this dimension
You and I are meant to be
I have waited lifetimes to find you
Now that you're here
I can remind you
Of the things you've been dreamin'
Times two
I promise you
If you just give me 24
Man, all I need is 24 hours
I promise you'll want plenty more
You've probably been waiting forever
So how does it sound
Us on the ground
Giving you my love?

There's no place quite like here
There's no better time than now
You gotta stay ready
There's no place quite like here
There's no better time than now
That's why I stay ready

[Kendrick Lamar:]
Tell me find your spot with the warning that I might slip
And when you climb on top that's the ultimate road trip
Ride on me like your Pac got me thinkin' it's '96
I can rap on some nineties shit, wrap your leggings around my hip
I'm so hip to it tourists want to come speculate
But if I stay monogamous promise this kiss will always taste like candy
And yeah, it's obvious momma now probably can't stand me
I'm sure they're tired of this look that you have when you're antsy
We gon' fuck around (Mmm), we gon' fuck around
And triple through triplets of babies right now
And that might break the record and no, that don't mean you're fertile
That means we're fucking reckless, plus we don't use protection
I find myself reading old text messages when I'm bored
We find ourselves sexting 'til that connection is restored
I know that sounds immature, but if we never grow up
Then I wish you good luck on the seats that's inside this Porsche

Come to me
Come, come to me
Look at what you've done to me
You put a gun to me
Then you brought the sun to me

Shine like blood diamonds
Learning to have patience
Only cause you are timeless
The universe energy doesn't lie
And this chemistry is infinity at a million times
I wrote a million rhymes describing your star power
And after 24 bars, you get 24 hours

There's no place quite like here
There's no better time than now
You gotta stay ready
There's no place quite like here
There's no better time than now
That's why I stay ready

All that I know is right now
Nothing's for sure but, right now
Gotta get yours like, right now, like, right now

I been through some shit man
But I be on my shit man
I decided that what you give is what you're given
So I been tryna do it right
I been doing like
Whatever gets me through the night

What a life

I'm steady always on the go
You steady always on the go
We steady losing all control

What a life

They say
The truth ain't pretty
But coming from that pretty mouth
The truth is fitting
Cause you ain't never talking loud
And you know plenty
Yeah you know what I'm talking bout
Cause you just get me
Yeah you so pretty

If everything is dipped in gold
Then baby it will never grow
Everything sweet ain't sugar coated

What a life

What a life
What a life that I've been given
What a life
What a life that I've been living
What a life
What a life we die to live in
What a life

  4. aymesm

    I am here after rhythm and flow but this woman is so much more than that. Her music is so special. I think a lot of it has to do with her spirituality. She’s definitely about something. I’m so glad I have been introduced to her because I don’t listen to a lot of new artists. She’s incredible!

  5. Kgomotso Mako

    I only discovered this song yesterday I'm so mad at myself 😭💔

    Flawless version was better for a live show.
