Rahmaan – Shanti Lyrics


[Verse 1]
Your parents said I ain’t no good for you
But I’m the only one that got hurt
I’m the only one that put in work
I’m the only one that’s in the dirt
Took you out about a hundred times (no I don’t know why)
Why did I think that you would never lie? (Way way way too nice)
I’m way too nice and girl, you took advantage (yeah, you took advantage)
Broke my mind eight times, I never planned this (tryna leave this planet)
Yeah – listen I’m not tryna be your friend; if I do, this shit will never end
All the money and the time I spent, tryna make you mine was a loss at best
Yallah — had way too much to drink
So I yelled and called you names, but that’s just how I think, like

[Prehook]
Yallah, yallah
I need some kinda power, power
To be all on my own
To be all on my own
Said I’m screaming yallah, yallah
I need some kinda power, power
To be all on my own
To be all on my own

[Hook x2]
I need shanti, shanti, shanti, shanti, shanti (x3)
All I really need is me and weed, so please get off me

[Verse 2]
Every girl I meet just be the same
Ain’t nobody tryna make a change
Ain’t nobody out here switchin lanes
Seem like every hoe be looking for some fame
Nobody tryna love you
All them guys just wanna f**k you
You hit my homies up like come through
Did you really think they dumb as you?
Now you goin way outta your way, tryna put everything back into place
See I know you cannot handle no hate, like everything has to go your way
Oh no, oh no — You couldn’t tell the truth
I couldn’t handle you, man what are you gonna do

[Prehook]
Yallah, yallah
I need some kinda power, power
To be all on my own
To be all on my own
Said I’m screamin yallah, yallah
I need some kinda power, power
To be all on my own
To be all on my own

[Hook x2]
I need shanti, shanti, shanti, shanti, shanti (x3)
All I really need is me and weed, so please get off me
