Tres Carter – “Bottoms Up”

It’s so hard loving someone else when I barely even love myself, Bottoms Up

(hook – sample from Christon Gray’s “After All”)
Please I don’t mean no harm boy, I’m just dealing with a broken past
And right now a pauper is a feasible offer, so I’ll have some of that open flask, oh oh oh oh ohhh

(verse 1)
Bottoms up the bar, double entendre, hurt despite the laughter

Daddy broke my heart before any player could spike it after

Scoring, touch down from touring

Texted you adore me while another bed you're in
Best friend Lauren told me beautiful is

Being you to the fullest, help me to remove this
Make up, caked up, hate the fact I need a man to validate me 

I’m tired of tolerating, inner beauty hibernating (tick tick tick tick)
I been waiting, winter over, growing colder every day

It’s crazy how you never showed up so I over compensated
Hardly dating cause before I dated hard

Left me Simba scarred, lie on king, moving on
Went and got my MBA, UCLA, need a baller NBA

Sorry Mr. Sterling, you ain’t in my league no more
Porsche keys, Gucci frame, Red carpet, Vera Wang

Get what you never obtain, go where you ain’t been before
Let me know why I still fill empty like cabinets on 14 

T-H dot E-S-cape, man I want to but I can’t
Carrying a lot of weight, insecurity hard to shake

I’m just pouring out my heart, pour me up another drink

(hook)
Please I don’t mean no harm boy, I’m just dealing with a broken past
And right now a pauper is a feasible offer, so I’ll have some of that open flask, oh oh oh oh ohhh

(In background during hook - “Come here shawty, Let me holla at chu! Girl you fine..)


(verse 2)

But how do I define myself
I just need time to find myself

Gotta raise 3 kids by myself
It’s divine, I ain’t like the hand I was dealt
So I would rather shuffle then commit to play it

Love comes after poker, bluffs, they got me jaded

Dealing with it’s tough, these puffs, they got me faded

If Ima be alone at least I know I made it
Till one day out in Vegas, one man was courageous

Very advantageous, we studied the same major

Met for minor conversation, same night we had relation

While he's married to Stacey, love is overrated, man
Went outside of God's will to get him, since I got him
Gotta stay outside of God's will to keep him, that’s a problem

Cause my momma always told me don’t go and repeat the cycle

Hands all over body, mind far from the Bible
OMG this moment, such a School of Roses

I love me, I love me not, all my pedals frozen

This is the life I’ve chosen so pour me up some Goose

I’m taking it out on you cause I don’t know what to do, man

(hook)
Please I don’t mean no harm boy, I’m just dealing with a broken past
And right now a pauper is a feasible offer (Bottoms Up), so I’ll have some of that open flask, oh oh oh oh ohhh
