Piggyback lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was three years old
All I wanted was the music and
My parents were doing everything they could
To move away from our place working over time always
While I sat up in my grandma's project building coloring, oh

Moved to a small town and
Started to, started to grow
Poetry written, I’m singing and dancing, oh
Photographs, painting, cartoons
That's all I know
That's all I know, oh

I have one best friend to this very f*cking day
Since we were five years old and I f*cking moved away
I wish I never did cause she’s the only one who sees me
For who I really am instead of how many I reach, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
Trusted too many fake people while I was still young
Gave them the benefit of the doubt, I was so wrong
I cut them off and they came for blood cause they know
They ain't getting no more

[Chorus]
I’m so done with playing piggy back, oh
Swear to god I wished y’all all the best, oh
You’re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me
When you could never come close cause I know my destiny
I worked hard for my sh*t
Put my love in this sh*t
Now you’re trying to kill my name for some fame
What is this?
Tried to help you do your sh*t
Encouraged you to work on it
Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage

[Verse 2]
Now I’m 22 and I've had a crazy year of
Isolation from all the plastic people here
I cannot wait for the day
I can finally move away
Back to New York City where the realest people really stay, oh

Oh, spent this whole time writing away my heart and my soul
The people I surround myself with have hearts filled with gold
Love and empathy are things that we hold so close
Trying to learn and evolve

[Chorus]
I’m so done with playing piggy back, oh
Swear to god I wished y’all all the best, oh
You’re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me
When you could never come close cause I know my destiny
I worked hard for my sh*t
Put my love in this sh*t
Now you’re trying to kill my name for some fame
What is this?
Tried to help you do your sh*t
Encouraged you to work on it
Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage

[Outro]
I’m so done with playing piggy back, oh
Swear to god I wished y'all all the best, oh
You're lying your way to try to gain a piece of me
When you could never come close cause I know my destiny
