Get Away Lyrics written by Aubrey Adams and Chris Henri

Verse
He met her laughing, she left him weeping
He felt her passing, she left him bleeding
They both kept going though never knowing
They both got older but neither growing
Unfinished business—A truth they had to keep
Same world—no difference, they push insanity
They knew the answer, they knew it well
But they would rather embrace this hell…

Chorus
She gotta get away
To find a better way
He got to get away
To find a brighter day

Verse
I heard that love is blind well i got both eyes
Cloud the judgments with loud but I wasn't surprised
That she was playing (whole time), that's just the brother’s type
Want ‘the bad bish' so I gotta deal with youngin’s hype
To cope: That's what the weed is for, I float and leave my course
Sobriety is my rope, it lets me know I need the Lord
Win or lose, either or, least i'm on the leaderboard
Pass by like meteors in the sky see the score
Dubs here L's there, L's in the air
Playing ‘Saint Elsewhere’ wondering if anybody else cares
She by my side, I'm high—she steady elsewhere 
Call her ‘Jazzy Belle’ so I don't know how wedding bells fare
My mans like “listen, why you tripping
‘Cause I got other women that know me as Sonny Liston”
But she my control system—my abs, soul and chest
Even if I don't hit her she always ‘gonna send the text

Chorus
She gotta get away
To find a better way
He got to get away
To find a brighter day


Bridge
We got to get away, run away
But you can't go but oh-so far
You got to get away, run away
No matter where you go you're where you are

Verse
So I had to let the youngin' from the first verse go
Purp rolled, in control—never swerve—turn slow
Purposeful, slot clean—open roster on the team
Pheromone's Prada: Up in the spot—posture lean
From the shots: whiskey rocks see them swim in the cup
Shake them as I figure out which one I’m getting to f*—
“What's up?” pretty face, cuff at the end of her butt
Down to mix the herb clouds with the wind in the club
“Them my ni**as love, don't trip—we good, come sip
Introduce your friends, ‘cause I’m loving who you run with”
Cups in the sky, phone ringing—slim on my line
‘Tryna get away I ain't okay her visit this time
I hit ‘decline’, the DJ had to get me out the way
Youngin' at the table heard it, stamped that she down to stay
Her number in my phone, she pulled me close and said “what's next?..
I live with my ex, take me to your place”, i said bet aye lets

Chorus
She gotta get away
To find a better way
He got to get away
To find a brighter day


Bridge
We got to get away, run away
But you can't go but oh-so far
You got to get away, run away
No matter where you go you're where you are
No matter where you go you're where you are
You better come to terms with who you are
I think it's time you learned just who you are

He met her laughing (laughing, laughing, laughing)
She left him weeping (weeping, weeping)
He felt her passing she left him bleeding
He got to get away...
