Almost There (feat. BJ The Chicago Kid)
Ab-Soul

[Verse 1: Ab-Soul]

I know exactly how it is to feel like no one cares

About the hard work you put in but who said life was fair?

It sure wasn't me I take the bitter with the sweet

And boil it in the pot make a hot toddy

I said If I'm going to play I'm going to play for keeps

Raise stakes, take stage, speak my peace

Make my pay, take my lady on a date

Send my parents on a cruise

Living, somewhere with a killer view, oh the irony I spew

But for now the studio couches gonna have to do

I ain't going to take what I ain't earned myself, foolish pride

That's what you need to survive, it's do or die

So step aside I don't mean no trouble

Just want to be someone that CJ could look up to

Oh, and just so you know

When I'm on the road I'm at the Travelodge not The W


[Hook]

Almost there, almost there, almost there

The finish line is in sight but I'm almost there, almost there, almost there

Almost there, almost there, almost there

Even if the sun don't shine the sun don't shine, almost


[Verse 2]

Somebody asked me, what you mean by longterm mentality, actually?

So I had to break it down:

Don't get caught up in the now, focus on the years abroad

Cause today you're here but tommorow you could be gone

Singing the same old song

And who's the place to blame on? Other than you

Whatever it is you do


From slanging eight balls to graduating from school

Just gotta see it all before it happens

I ain't saying see a psychic

I'm just saying have a, idea of what you're accomplishing

You'll have a greater chance to accomplish it

You know a little strategy, premeditation

Wins races nine times out of ten

As if losing's ever an option

Had to bust my own bubble I really thought I was popping (Not quite)


[Hook]


[Verse 3]

Just know your future's right around the corner

Oppurtunity galore for ya

More and more you'll start to see it's no limit to what you can be

In any event, eventually

Treat your first like your last time

Cause it might be your last time, that's what I learned last time

Look forward to looking forward in my pastime

You just letting time pass like "that's fine" as wine

Contrary to popular belief, I want the peace

They say I'm headed hellbound at God's speed

Gesundheit, or bless me if you like

As I, put my faith in this bud and budlight

I've been patiently waiting for a track to explode on

Talk my shit, drop my load on

Hold on, I don't think you know how close I am

By the time this song's done I'm already there
