Lyrics for Drake – Headlines

[Verse 1 - Drake:]
I might be too strung out on compliments
Overdosed on confidence started not to give a f-ck and stop fearing the concequence
Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments
Faded way too long I’m floating in and out of consciousness
And they sayin’ that I’m back I’d agree with that
I just take my time with all this sh-t I still believe in that
I had someone tell me I fell off – ooh I needed that
And they wanna see me pick back up right well where’d I leave it at?

[Hook 1:]
I know I exaggerated things now I got it like that
Stuff a napkin in my shirt ’cause I’m just marvin like that
You know good and well that you don’t wanna problem like that
You gon make someone around me cause your body that bad ooh

No, don’t do it please don’t do it
‘Cause one of us goes in and we all go through it
And Drizzy got the money
So Drizzy gon’ pay it
Those my brothers I ain’t even gotta say it
That’s just something they know

[Chorus:]
They know
They know they know they know
They know they know they know
They know they know they know

Yeah, that the real is on the rise
F-ck ‘em other guys
I even gave ‘em a chance to decide now that’s something they know
They know they know they know, yeah

[Verse 2:]
I be yelling out money over everything
Money on my mind
Then she wanna ask when it got so empty
Tell her I apologize, happened over time
She says they missed the old Drake – girl don’t tempt me
If they don’t get it they’ll be over you
That new sh-t that you got is overdue
You’d better do what you’re supposed to do
I’m like why I gotta be all that but still I can’t deny the fact that it’s… true

Listen to you expressin all them feelings
Soap opera rappers all these n-ggas sound like All My Children
And that’s how you thinking is about to come and make a killing
I guess it really is just me, myself, and all my millions

[Hook 2:]
You know that they ain’t even got it like that
You gon’ hype me up and make me catch your body like that
‘Cause I live for this it isn’t just a hobby like that
When they get my sh-t and play it I don’t even gotta say it

[Chorus:]
They know
They know they know they know
They know they know they know
They know they know they know

Yeah, that the real is on the rise
F-ck ‘em other guys
I even gave em a chance to decide now that’s something they know
They know they know they know
I be yelling out money over everything
Money on my mind
(mind mind mind)
Tell em I apologize it happened over time
(time time time)
