Lyrics – Reprise, Cavalier

[Verse 1]
I got her name tattooed on my chest
I’m chasing Amy, retracing my steps, smoke tracing my breaths
I still smell her clove linger off of Lefferts and Grand
If you don’t know about love or death then you just won’t understand
I’m reminiscent like a Chester Higgins
From where clips see empty like they pessimistic
Impressionistic, my frustration from painting a portrait that’s so vivid
And they still couldn’t get it, from thin air
I’m tryna whittle it away before it withers away
Once bitten, now it slithered away
My sky blue, now digital ray
This requiem for my street
But technically the equity seeked is not equity banked
Before it tanks, I give thanks when techs bang on this beat
Yo, we need to bring back weed spots
We need to bring back weed spots, I’m tryna tell ya
It’s not nostalgia, this been my style for a while
These closet bangers, these moves is timing, Tutankhamen
Common threads, Kama Sutra guided common sense
Santana riffs, banana Nutrament, bandana kids
Sandbagging sandwich bags, masterplans from a few zips
Like skeoops
I know the Stuy smell like trees at night
I know these blocks from my dreams at night
I know some opps tryna read these rights
100k off of these here bikes, I know the feel

[Verse 2]
I got her name tattooed on my chest
I’m chasing Amy, replaying this test, between reflect or forget
Still feel her essence on New York between Bergen and Dean
If you ain’t blessed to know ’bout loss then you can’t learn what I mean
These is Kings Plaza stanzas en confianza
Sponsored by OG, somber give cold reminders
I part ways with entourages when it’s off or too tra la la la
It ain’t about whats popula if it ain’t on my parabola
Phantom of yo’ opera, rockin’ High John the Conquerer
Blocking cyclops hate with the Hmasa hand of the Fatima
Jamie Foxx on ’em, talk to the hand
The Bronx 80 blocks from her, I’m just 28 grams
Just an ounce
We downriver, they already took our grounds
We just kids from the crown
Heights of the Empire State and now it’s like they tryna take us out
I know the feels, the feels, they in my house
I know the feels, the feels
I know the feels, the feels
How it feels when they takin’ all your dreams out your fields
I know the feels, the feels
I know the feels, the feels
How it feels when they takin’ all your dreams out your fields
How it feels
