[Intro: Will Smith]
Set your life on fire and seek those who fan your flames.
Don’t be hanging with no jank-ass jokers that don’t help you shine.
Feed your flame.
[Verse 1: GR]
How you doing bro?
Is everything good?
I saw you on TV
Think it was NBC
Nah, maybe CBS
Yo, either way you shining
I see you put the grind in
Yea, it’s all about the timing
It was all a dream but it came true
I’m in alignment times two
Times Square Forty Deuce
Did the math with a fine tooth
Cut the beef with a ginsu
Salt & Pepa Shoop Shoop
Long neck for the goose goose
Got her hands up till high noon
You gotta defend your light with your life.
[Verse 2: GR]
Dial tone for the competition
Touch tones feel me pressin
Hear me now? Linda listen
Think I’m cute? Intermission
Nice smile with the contour
If she want it I buy it for her
Gossip talk no time for it
‘Less you talking bout Robb Report
George Robert in Tom Ford
Hugo Boss I’m a connoisseur
Got it all but I want more
Starring role in a Sit-Com
Heartthrob in a Rom-Com
I’m syndicated. Pom poms
I’m so focused, I’m too determined
Kill Bill’s Uma Thurman
Two deep in a black suburban
It’s the New Me with the Old Me
Can’t fool me, can’t hold me
Black Magic gave me sight
Sword of Omens beyond sight
Love rap when it’s done right
What are trying to accomplish with this drive that propels you out of bed every morning?
I’m really trying to inspire. I’m trying to be a platform of inspiration during a time where I feel inspiration is needed.
[Verse 3: GR]
You can’t hold me in your brackets
I give blessings on a mattress
She slow to kiss but fast to fuck
That’s hoe business, lets keep it a buck
Red flag. Keep your eyes peeled
Sin city with the private dancer
Hold up Sway you ain’t got the answers
NBA with the floor seats
Super Bowl owner’s suite
World Series home plate
Black and white but we all connected
Difference is I resurrected
From the diddy bop to the milly rock
I had wrist watch with the tic toc
Times change. People too
They don’t make men like they used too
Belafonte, Poitier, Mandela, or Tutu
Make my mark like those dudes
Now One Two Five got a Whole Foods
My future is bright, I’m a go getter
I don’t fuck with you ‘cause I know better
Side step, spin move, jump back then shoot.
[Outro: Will Smith]
The prerequisite for spending time with any person is that they nourish and inspire you. They feed your flame.
Look at your last five text messages.
Are those people feeding your flames or dousing your fire?
Put your phone down for just a second and look around.
Look to the people around you.
Are those people throwing logs on your fire or are they pissing on it?
The people that you spend time with are gonna make or break your dreams.
Everybody don’t deserve to be around you.
