lyrics

Lyrics written by Che Adams and Chris Henri

Chorus
Take your time we're on the rise
Ease your mind we're getting high
Take a look into my eyes
And take your time we're on the rise

Verse
I'ma try and say this right, understand I'm on the humble
But I'ma be ok, tough cookies never crumble
I know I dropped the ball but ain't we all allowed to fumble
Shit, I get up real quick, and never take the same tumble
So rumble young man rumble,
Never give up the hunger
Lightning strikes twice
So be ready like the thunder
Mentally shit should be
Simply easy to handle
Perfect practice, perfect habits
Perfect passes on the scramble
All that matters is you gather
All the ladders you can find
Take the day lead the way
Every play in your mind
So get back to your gathering
Your mixing and mastering
Ain't no use in dreaming
Hit record once it's happening
Chill, we're moving forward and regret is for the birds
Make it real, let your actions speak louder than your words
Don't wait, keep pace and remember that you're blessed
Have faith, be patient, this is just another test. So

Chorus
Take your time we're on the rise
Ease your mind we're getting high
Take a look into my eyes
And take your time we're on the rise

Verse
I got some papers and a lighter on my dresser... yessir
I got some papers and a lighter on my dresser... yessir
I got some papers and a lighter on my dresser... yessir
Aye bambu, raw papers, e-z widers
I got some papers and a lighter on my dresser... yessir
Aye zig-zags, we don't rock with them tops... nah
And i'ma grab them two things, my chap stick, wallet and keys then leave
Thank God it's the end of spring, no jackets, long sleeves
Seeing thongs, D's out, I'm on it when it meows
They interested I play more positions then Boris Diaw
We twisting palm tree loud, to the reggie we senile
We making moves, on the rise, we don't even see clouds
Except the ones from trees now, need the bag in money piles
‘Til I won't wear sunglasses for fashion, up in my beach house
Reclining with my feet out, Adidas slippers on sand
Beater, shorts (Jordan brand), twist tree, hitting a jack
Newcastle in hand, this what I day dream bout, on foreign sand
Puffin, resorting with something gorgeous, pouring jack
It's what I need now, the path that I chose, it was a toll road
But as I've grown I know it's the same anyway you going go
So breathe child, trials that you face are weights that you need now
Just lift it, that's word to what I'm getting as I peace out!

Chorus 
Take your time we're on the rise
Ease your mind we're getting high
Take a look into my eyes 
And take your time we're on the rise 

We're on the rise, we're on the rise
We're on the rise
I might just spread my wings and fly
I might just spread my wings and fly
I might just spread my wings and fly

Reprise
Tried to tell 'em I was on the rise
But now I can't I can't see em 'cause my chin too high
Tried to tell 'em I was on the rise
But now I can't I can't see em 'cause my chin too high
Tried to tell 'em I was on the rise
But now I can't I can't see em 'cause my chin too high
Tried to tell 'em I was on the rise
But now I can't I can't see em 'cause my chin too high

We rollin', we smokin', we tokin', we floatin'.
We rollin', we smokin', we tokin', we floatin'.

Take your time, baby
Take your time, baby
Take your time, baby
Take your time, baby
Take your time we're on the rise...
