Piggyback

I was three years old, all I wanted was the music and my
Parents were doing everything they could to move
Away from our place, working over time always
While I sat up in my grandma's project building, coloring

Ooh, moved to a small town and started to, started to grow
Poetry written, I'm singing and dancing, ooh
Photographs, painting, cartoons, that's all I know
That's all I know

I have one best friend to this very fucking day since we were
Five years old and I fucking moved away, I wish I
Never did, 'cause she's the only one who sees me
For who I really am instead of how many I reach

Ooh, trusted too many fake people while I was still young
Gave them the benefit of the doubt, I was so wrong
I cut them off and they came for blood, 'cause they know
They ain't getting no more

I'm so done with playing piggyback, oh ooh
Swear to God I wished y'all all the best, ooh
You're lying your way to try and gain a piece of me when you could
Never come close, 'cause I know my destiny

I worked hard for my shit, put my love in this shit
Now you're trying to kill my name for some fame, what is this?
Tried to help you do your shit, encouraged you to work on it
Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage

Now I'm twenty-two and I've had a crazy year of
Isolation from all the plastic people here, I can not
Wait for the day I can finally move away
Back to New York city, where the realest people really stay

Ooh, spent this whole time writing away my heart and my soul
The people I surround myself with have hearts filled with gold
Love and empathy are things that we hold so close
Trying to learn and evolve

I'm so done with playing piggyback, oh ooh
Swear to God I wished y'all all the best, ooh
You're lying your way to try and gain a piece of me when you could
Never come close, 'cause I know my destiny

I worked hard for my shit, put my love in this shit
Now you're trying to kill my name for some fame, what is this?
Tried to help you do your shit, encouraged you to work on it
Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage

I'm so done with playing piggyback, oh ooh
Swear to God I wished y'all all the best, ooh
You're lying your way to try and gain a piece of me when you could
Never come close, 'cause I know my destiny
