Lyrics for Sucks To Be You by SAINt JHN:

Intro
Told Lee he'd be a millionaire

Chorus
Sucks to be you 'cause I would have loved you
I'd watch the whole world burn to see you dance
Runnin' through cartels and jumpin' through bombshells
I thought we would die growin' old holding hands
It sucks to be you 'cause I would have loved you
I'd watch the whole world burn to see you dance
Jump over bombshells and runnin' through cartels
Thought we would die growin' old holdin' hands

Verse 1
This story don't start off great
I'm a gorilla goin' ape
I'm just a street nigga tryna make it to a milli in all the wrong ways
I'm runnin' all the long plays
They said I was born the wrong shade
I shoulda made it five years ago, my nigga, I was really born late
I used to, carry sticks in my clothes
Carry work in my shoes
Below the poverty line, what you expect me to do?
Runnin' through this life until twenty-one, twenty-two
Until I had to make a choice, you helped me choose

Pre-Chorus
She said she believe in me, just keep on goin'
Just make sure when you get there leave the door open
I said you know who I am, it's the kid from Brooklyn
I wish you still believed, even though tears are soaking

Chorus
Sucks to be you 'cause I would have loved you
I'd watch the whole world burn to see you dance
Runnin' through cartels and jumpin' through bombshells
I thought we would die growin' old holding hands
It sucks to be you 'cause I would have loved you
I'd watch the whole world burn to see you dance
Jump over bombshells and runnin' through cartels
Thought we would die growin' old holdin' hands

Verse 2
So I tell nobody 'bout my dreams workin' at the hotel
'Cause I don't think confessions over there might go well
And goin' back to the hood means that I of course fail
You either kill or you are killed so I say
Moved uptown, Kyra, you gave me a place to stay
Mama kicked me out back then
She did it ungraciously
Came home to all of the locks changed on New Year's Eve
I'm glad we're doin' better, we're both okay
Done stayed there for like three years
Oh bless her heart and soul
She's worth a pot of gold
She's worth a thousand years of G-Wagons on the road
I made a promise I keep it, won't ever betray those

Pre-Chorus
She said she believe in me, just keep on goin'
Just make sure when you get there leave the door open
I said you know who I am, it's the kid from Brooklyn
I had abandonment issues you left me broken

Chorus
Sucks to be you 'cause I would have loved you
I'd watch the whole world burn to see you dance
Runnin' through cartels and jumpin' through bombshells
I thought we would die growin' old holding hands
It sucks to be you 'cause I would have loved you
I'd watch the whole world burn to see you dance
Jump over bombshells and runnin' through cartels
Thought we would die growin' old holdin' hands

Outro
It sucks to be you
