Vic Mensa - The 1 That Got Away / No Shoes Lyrics




["The One That Got Away"]

I can't see it coming down my eyes
But I gotta let this song cry
I gotta let you know this been on my mind for a long time
But the cat had my tongue
When we were young I told my dogs
You should be having my son
But after one two many van tours to endure
Illusions of grandeur, I left you hanging just like a jury
You were my first love, and you just became secondary
I was busy chasin' pussy like Tom runnin' from Jerry
And that's ass backwards, I know
Like an asthmatic who smoke
I flash back to the laughs we shared, broke as a joke
Not a care in the world, together we prepared for the world
Backstage and on the On The Run tour
And I'm there with my girl
By my side when I sign my deal, wavin' hi to my dollar bills
We couldn't buy a meal, now I was worth about a mil'
That shit went to my head like a sudafed
I used to drive a car to move my buddha
Now they know my name in Budapest
My money got older, I grew up less
And I do confess, I broke your heart
Like a sledgehammer through the chest
Tryna be known in this music mess
I left it when it knew me best, I left it when it knew me best

Let's meet behind the middle (Can we go back?)
Go back through time just a little
When you were mine, a little (Can we go?)
Just like old times, just a little (Just)

["No Shoes"]

Five eight, six feet with the heels on
Used to be my rhythm but we lost the tempo
Even when I'm writing, tell me what I did wrong
Treat me like I'm gone every time I get on
Remember when I put you in that new Benzo?
How you gon' be mad that I'm off of benzo?
Should've kept your ass in the fuckin' friendzone
Maybe I was in a different time zone

'Cause I can't find the time for you, let you tell it
Know I woke up blind for you
I never change my mind for you, it's true
Just to keep my eyes on you
But you let her run her mouth, don't you
I would run a mile
When you know I'd run a mile for you, with no shoes
I'm addicted to you baby, oh
'Dicted to you baby, addicted to you baby, oh

    Let's hit rewind a little (Can we go back?)
    Go back through time just a little
    When you were mine, a little (Can we go?)
    Just like old times, just a little (Just)
    Five eight, six feet with the heels on

  4. N J

    Charlie Wilson transcends you heaven man 🔥🔥

  5. Arcade X

    Charles Hamilton vibes 😋

  6. Sydney Smith

    Reminiscing be like... such a great song.

  7. Poetic Justice

    This had a song that didn't make the cut on The Autobiography

    Shaiheme White-Wallace

    I think the one that got away would've probably been the track but honestly these both have a vibe that could've fit in the autobiography

  8. Alvin Lewis

    Vic said - When we were Young I told my dogs you should have my son 🤔🤔🤔 um dogs = men or am I tripping

    Roderick Wilson

    I see what your saying but what I think he is actually saying is he use to talk to his dogs or 'homies' about this girl he was infatuated with. That "you" is addressing her not his friends.

    Saajid Bhuiya

    @Roderick Wilson thats probably right but I definitely didnt get that. To me it seemed like either some weirdly wired line about trusting his homies to the point where he'd be able to leave his kids with thrm and know they will be absolutely fine

  9. Dee Speed

    Is that a Charlie Wilson/gap band sample on the intro? Where is that from?

    Dee Speed

    I’m tripping it’s Eddie Kendricks

    Amos Finneran

    Dee Speed what song

  10. fly man

    This song screams chance

    Poetic Justice

    Not really and im big fan of both

    Zintle Mvana

    Lol, which Chance?

  11. Edgar Chayanne

    Way better than that xxxtentacion skins im sorry

    Pre Law

    Edgar Chayanne If you like Vic just say that nigga don’t diss a dead nigga just to show love

  12. Miss Jacquelyn Wynette Chatman,Nickname Jackie

    🇺🇸🇵🇦🌬💯🏆

  13. JMKFitness

    yo low key this song sort of reminds me of drake vibes from his album "Views" anyone sort of feel the same?

  14. Kid Royalty

    Charlie Wilson!? That's unexpected. :0

    Christina James

    My shit

  15. Pre Law

    I know vic is lame lol but I actually really like this song

    Kid Royalty

    @J facts

    Zintle Mvana

    @Pre Law he's not lame at all. You're just a spineless person.

    Zintle Mvana

    @Pre Law don't let peer pressure trip you up

    Pre Law

    @Zintle Mvana No. I just don't like the things that come out of his mouth when there is not a beat accompanying it.

  16. N M

    Vic Mensa help me get thru a lot of shit

  17. N M

    U said on the gram that uncle Charlie killed it and he did it

  18. That Guy

    Who's singing the chorus in the 1st song. And what's the name of that person's song if It's a sample.

    Grizzlywolf93

    That Guy charlie wilson

    That Guy

    @Grizzlywolf93 Thanks man. I figured it out. I was kinda hoping he had a full song with the chorus from the 1st half but I don't think he does.

  19. Weston Tomlinson

    Worth the wait

  20. NytteTime

    I was not expecting a beat transition 🔥🔥🔥

  21. Vic Mensa Forever

    Thank you Vic
