Bas - Matches Lyrics




[Intro:]
I guess the lights that been shining a lot brighter
Let's have a drink with the girls from the videos

[Verse 1:]
If I wasn't preoccupied, self absorbed, you self alone
I left you with, I got the world
Still felt alone and ever since been lost in the stars
Missing on what Heaven sent godly
I'm faulty, I'm fraud maybe
Probably was the reason that your dog hate me
But fuck that bitch like the law baby
Girl I'm just playing but I'm off though
We should grab a drink before we link up at the cross road
Pick it all apart
Don't be tickling my heart you'd say
I was with you from the start you'd say
I really thought you did it for the art you'd say
I guess the lights that been shining a lot brighter
Let's have a drink with the girls from the video
I must have been through this one 'til my past life
I see the pit falls, dodging the difficult

[Hook - Bas & The Hics:]
Rolling down the slippery slope, stay on point I tippy toe it
Won't you smile it gives me hope
Pray that you forgive me for it
Rolling down the slippery slope, stay on point I tippy toe it
Won't you smile it gives me hope
Pray that you forgive me for it

[Verse 2:]
You understand?
Can't remember last night a nigga under Xans
My haters I lost sight can't see 'em under Bans
My niggas yell, "let's ride" they see I got a plan
Me I understand, I just understand it
I pray to God when I see how far we've come
Tears of joy I think we could drown the sun
And let that marijuana twist up
Put me right up in the lineup never been sub
I'm next up never mind when we get snubbed
They getting Michael Jordan, Harold Miner mixed up
We gone show 'em that Dreamville this year
We gone show 'em that when the people come together ain't no holding back
And that's the only fact
I been holding back tears for these young black souls lost in the past year
Some by the law, they ain't even flash steel
Some by they own dogs, most by their own fears
And you can watch it all young nigga stand still
Niggas yelling 100, they ain't half real
Fuck a line in the sand, I put a line on the dot and leave you right where you stand, and I'm just trying to understand

[Hook - Bas & The Hics:]
Rolling down the slippery slope, stay on point I tippy toe it
Won't you smile it gives me hope
Pray that you forgive me for it
Rolling down the slippery slope, stay on point I tippy toe it
Won't you smile it gives me hope
Pray that you forgive me for it

[Outro - The Hics:]
Been there before, lust in my eye
Times in the past
Drowning my sorrows, my fears for you
Louder, In my head getting louder
I'm holding on tight darling
The roots to places I found
I'm closing my eyes closed
Now I'm back with you in my mind

  24. Nig'el Burnz

    I feel like if Kanye West produced Bas's next solo album it would be like hearing sound for the first time. Tbh Bas is 1 GREAT album away from a Grammy and after that, this album wnd the others would likely be in heavy spins. Bas got so much talent and my guy's potential is not even peaked. DROP ME THAT ALBUM BAS! WE NEED IT! MILKY WAY WAS WEAK.

  25. Brandon Jacobs

    i remember loving this song as a 8th grader and now im bouta be a senior

  26. Lil Penile Infection

    This the type of music you hear when you riding down the freeway after a party on the radio

  31. BlueKnightCRAZE

    Bas and isaiah rashad are criminally underrated

  32. BarryBtheCool

    I’ve been listening to this song almost daily since this album drop and still can’t find more songs with this kind of vibe. Y’all got any recommendations???

  33. HUNTENT247

    Bas hella dope. Nigga rapped about Harold Miner. They used to compare him to Jordan all the time, nicknaming him Baby Jordan. I had a book of the top 50 Greatest dunkers of All-Time when I was a kid and Harold was one of those dunkers. Gotta love Bas for putting obscure information out there that only true fans would recognize.

  34. Ashan Gibbs
