Big Sean - Dark Sky (Skyscrapers) Lyrics



I see the skyscrapers in the back, this shit is official

I got a lot on my mind, I got more in my face
If I ain't going to get it, that day is going to waste
I'm tryna move in my safe, like the safe was a safehouse
I ain't going out to eat, but these hoes stay on the stakeout
And you know it's official when I go bringing that BAPE out
I'm thumbing through the magazines like "this the girl I'mma take out"
Imagine stuck in the D and you tryna find a way way out
And yeah, your music been bumping and you just waiting to break out
And I've been waiting all god damn year, all year
I can tell that it's near, but near ain't here
Man, them bills is here right now
I guess you shine brightest when the lights down, like now
And then they say it happened for me overnight, shit, yeah I guess
I guess it took ten years for me to be an overnight success
What you know about living check to check to living check to check to check to check?
First place, no neck and neck
Two girls is breast to breast to breast to breast
Blowing smoke but I'm a breath of fresh air
Yeah, saying I'm doing extra numbers like I'm Chinese
Taking double shots like Siamese
I'm from where crime breeds, her titties out like sign these
I knew I lived this life back when I was young and used to climb trees
I should've known back then I wasn't gonna stop
Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top
I said I should've known back then, man, that I wasn't gonna stop
Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top

And I don't owe nobody in the world no favors
I started from the basement, made it to the skyscrapers
I'm a successful nigga, I got shit going on
I'm a successful Don, I got shit going on
[x2]

Bitch, watch how you speak to me
I've been working all week and I know I need ZZZZs
Tryna get paid repeatedly
Jamaica or Cancun, oh now that's where I need to be
Credit card used to be EBT, in the D though that's D-EBT
I be thinking about becoming a cop
So I can murder some niggas one by one off legally
I talk that real shit, but that's why they loving it
One time for the city, treating it like it's the mothership
Was talking to my dad though on some other shit
He like "man, slow down with the girls you're fucking with
If they ain't a quarter back, there's no point of rushing it
Don't make the same mistakes I made with your mother"
But that's on some other shit, look
I'm into risk and taking it
I'm into making it then back then make it like I ain't made it yet
This the rehab for a workaholic, I been thinking bout shaking it
I done had a Rolex longer than I had relationships, I'm embarrassed to say that shit
But I've been working on myself and that's the most important work
Even if you don't get paid for it
Shit, call me the greatest
Don't call up no favours, I call up my saviour
Like thank you God, look at all we created
I started rapping Biggie Smalls in the basement
And now we headed to the tallest skyscrapers

  34. AsGLeague

    Today Interview with Big Sean:
    I "Moves", "Halfway Off The Balcony". The "Dark Sky" I was about to "Jump Out The Window" but then I saw the "Light" so I decided to "Bounce Back" because I realized I made too many "Sacrifices" with "No Favors" from anyone and that's "Bigger Than Me" I will "live this life" "Blessing" everyone with "Miracles" because "I Know" "Mercy". "My Last" life before I changed "I Dont Fuck With You" I "Play No Games" but "Beware" i changed I now "Dance" it no longer "All Your Fault" I did my "Research" and it felt "So Good". I now know that you "Win Some, Lose Some" after this "Fire" I opened up my eyes "One Man Can Change The World" so you should "See Me Now" I "Pull Up N Wreck" with my "Clique" "I Do It" and you should too......ok im done "No More Interviews" Peace.

    [Intro]
    Sean, it's good to be home, isn't it?
    I see the skyscrapers in the back, this shit is official

    [Verse 1]
    I got a lot on my mind, I got more in my face
    If I ain't going to get it that day is going to waste
    I'm tryna move in my safe like the safe was a safehouse
    I ain't going out to eat but these hoes stay on the stakeout
    And you know it's official when I go bringing that BAPE out

    Imagine stuck in the D and you tryna find a way-way out
    And yeah, your music been bumping and you just waiting to break out
    And I've been waiting all god damn year, oh yeah

    Man, them bills is here right now
    I guess you shine brightest when the lights down like now
    And then they say it happened for me overnight, shit yeah I guess

    What you know 'bout living check to check to living check to check to check to check?
    First place, no neck and neck
    Two girls is breast to breast to breast to breast
    Blowing smoke but I'm a breath of fresh air
    Yes, and I'm doing extra numbers like I'm Chinese
    Taking double shots like Siamese
    I'm from where crime breeds, her titties out like "Sign these"
    I knew I lived this life back when I was young and used to climb trees
    I should've known back then I wasn't gon' stop
    Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top
    I said, "I should've known back then, man, that I wasn't gon' stop"
    Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top

    [Hook]
    And I don't owe nobody in the world no favors
    I started from the basement made it to the skyscrapers
    I'm a successful nigga, I got shit going on
    I'm a successful Don, I got shit going on
    Said, "I don't owe nobody in the world no favors"
    I started from the basement made it to the skyscrapers
    I'm a successful nigga, I got shit going on
    I'm a successful Don, I got shit going on

    [Verse 2]
    Bitch, watch how you speak to me
    I've been working all week and I know I need ZZZZs
