See the problem with me,
is that I'm too damn focus,
that's why I can't sleep,
'cause my mind is always turning,
it got me grindin' through we

Fresh to death you can't deny
Probably wonder how we got so fly
this is something that can't be bought
you either got it or you don't

Won't You Go

Written By: Nicholas Legault, Pierre-Luc Fortin

won't you go leave me please
with you here I can't feel this peace
walked this road together it seems
like forever and we built these schemes
traveled the path, been through many battles & laughs
but now we've finally reached the limit like a salary cap
there's no wonder took it all now I had to react
I'm no longer shook to fall (but) don't answer me back
I'm handsome you act like I ain't, plan some you act like I can't
what you are is a cancer attack, like a pain
in my side why you stop me from flying?
got my brain upside down imprinted a stop sign
done did it at all times broke down my confidence
hope bound to fall now won't crown incompetence
won't drown in all you're stench, you drove me to hell
but gotta learn to love you cause I can't hate myself

Now Won't you go
cause I can't stand to see your face no more
please let me breathe
cause I can't feel this peace until you leave
no, I can't stand it no more
stranded for sure
I had to let you know
Now won't you go

yo I have to learn that I gotta leave you back
cause in this term you just keeping me back
but man it's so hard, so many good times
and now we're both far, I feel we should mind
each our own biz, we were both known kids
close to no ends brothers man no friends
no chance I ever thought that I would outgrow you
understand how much I owe you
you were the one to help shape who I am
and it's stupid we can't kick it
cause now I'm a man
and I'm a mess right now, cause I can't stress how I
will never see you ever again, daam
how can I leave something so good
but I guess we all got to say goodbye to our childhood
