Bennett, Taylor - BE YOURSELF Lyrics




[Taylor Bennett:]
That ain't wrong
That ain't wrong
In order to touch, you gotta [?]
Don't break you down, no
These diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure

I used to look up at the stars and wonder if he's really there
If he was, why he give me hand-me-downs every year
Why my momma hate my dad, and why my daddy never here
Why I got this IEP, and why can't I just be prepared
Why these teachers laugh at me when I say I'ma be the mayor
When I say I'm serious, why they smiles don't disappear
'Cause I ride that CTA, 4.0 ain't my GPA
My momma was so proud of me, Lisa Bennett not Lisa Ray
She was scratching lottery tickets, when we gon' see the place
And on top of that got my first suspension like yesterday
They know I'm '07 now why these niggas gon' mess with me
If I got a problem, still call up Seek, he gone rescue me
You say hit up Jay for that recipe, now it's rest in peace
Chano you can rest in peace, Damo you can rest in peace
Maurice you can rest in peace, damn that shit got the best of me
Used to leave McDonald's with empty bottles and cold gelato
When it's hot Chicago we movin' like the clutch off the throttle
Now it's less McDonald's like models coming from Colorado
If I painted my story, my canvases aura couldn’t follow
I used stay up late nights wanting what I couldn't borrow
Now it's hello world, hella' yellow girls in my bed [?]
So much more than my dictionary could infer
I just had to write this track, goddamn while my stomach hurt
'Cus we all independent in this bitch and we can fuckin' merge
Been a while since I've been to church no wonder I'm feellin' cursed
Wishin' this was '05 back when ain't nobody give a fuck
Before this Acid Rain dance, and that's when we were good enough
From playpens to stadiums, that's a lot of growing up
I just thought I'd open up 'cause that means that it's more to us
No name-dropping, clout-chasing, ain't the way the tour bus
I been in a lab clockin' work without no doctor shirt
This year wasn't easy, if your dreamin' boy you gotta work
Thinkin' this shit gotta work, everytime I write a verse
Workin', workin' workin', workin', workin', that's that Bennett curse
Dream's worth believing in, scheming, planning an' seizin' 'em
Used to call me retarded, now all my F's got them V's in 'em
Salty exes is seasonin', slowin' down on my sodium
Euphoria's not utopia, stop actin' like you know me bruh
I knew since birth I was certain that I was sent with a purpose
While you competin' with crabs in a bucket I'm in the ocean
It's Taylor Bennett, your superhero, the answer's been spoken
I told 'em be yourself fast, you gotta scream to the masses
And niggas still call me faggot, but bitch my shit lookin' fabulous
You can tell by the bag I get, momma's names on the addresses
You portray with the savages, I invade them, enslave them
My debt is repaid and then blast that shit, I ain't cappin’ or Catholic
I'm an outstanding Afro-American bisexual havin' shit
Change your dreams if they average
If your workplace is adamant, how the fuck it ain't accurate?
Okay
I switch lanes for gang gang, and no shame in my job
And no angles, just angels, who hate what we love
And we're ages and pages, it's dangerous trust
And no favorites, just favors, it's neighborly love
And my savior done made me and saved all of us
And your savior done made you and saved all of us
And my savior done made me and saved all of us

[Bianca Shaw:]
You know, deep down
We're all our own kind
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, we're all our own kind
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, we're all a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, you're a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, you're a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure
Deep down, you're a gold mine
You know, diamonds take pressure
Diamonds take pressure

  43. Liam Tovey

    He’s so underrated but he’s doing a good job making a name for himself. It’s almost that he uses that he’s Chance’s brother to power himself and make him better.

  44. Ortega Ortega

    🎶🎶🎧💖

  45. Sofia Tamayo

    Hate when people always compare Taylor to chance. Taylor is literally killing it right now. I love this!

    Isaac Strong

    Seriously they both have their own style and I agree with you about Taylor killing it right now.

    EastCoast Knicks

    I mean shit.. I would compare him to chance if it was the first time I heard of Taylor Bennett because how similar their voices sound to each other.

  50. Sara gillar ost

    I’m so proud of you man❤️

  51. DFishFan

    This shit dope, that flow kept going in.

  52. Neezy

  53. Jonathan Flores

    I needed this. Thank you!

  54. DigitalHaunt

    I love Taylor so much, he is doing so well in the shadow of his brother. It must be hard for him to always to be compared but he is KILLING it.

  55. BunderJ

    Taylor and Chance, my two favorite artists! They both actually have meaning to their songs unlike most of the other rappers nowadays

    2k Plays

    BunderJ same bro

    Zackary Christian

    IMO probably the best verse I heard from Taylor so far. Really dope record.

  57. Samuel Aiken

    Dude I honestly don’t know how you’re not at 1 mil yet. You put out such good content. Like half of these songs I wouldn’t know if I wasn’t subbed to you. Just keep grinding man. Your channel will blow up one day👌👌 I’ve been here for awhile. Idk how many subs you had but I’m glad I found your channel, putting me on to this dope ass music bro.✊️

    Promoting Sounds

    This may be one of the best songs that I’ve ever heard, between this, Oxygen, Shadow Man, Raw, and Ruby Red and a few others

    Grandpa Arno

    i know the first two are smino and noname, but who are the other two songs by?

    Orange 13

    Grandpa Arno Smino

  59. Orange 13
