Javari Lyrics (Want You to Fly)

[Intro]

Baby, something I been feeling in the depths of my heart

Hmm

Vhari, vhari

Yeah

Yeah, uh

[Verse 1]

God is real and he usin’ me for a bigger purpose

So fuck the world that would have you think that a nigga worthless

Sometimes I think that these verses can help a person

Way more than the ones they readin’ in churches on days of worship

No disrespect to the Lord and Savior, that ain’t just ego

I just observe that them words no longer relate to people

‘Cause modern times be flooded with dollar signs

And social media stuntin’, my niggas just wanna shine

They frame of mind so far removed from the days and times

Of Nazareth

Life these days is a labyrinth, in a maze so elaborate

We barely get through half of it ‘fore it’s too late

My niggas is felons from sellin’ weight in more than two states

.22 in his waist before he could even shoot straight

Quick to draw on you like Aaron McGruder, nigga who fate?

All of that to say maybe the hood need a new faith

A new story about a boy from not too far where you stay

[Chorus]

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

[Verse 2]

His momma was a virgin named Yolanda

And she raised him on her own, after she was disowned

Her momma called her a liar, said “Get the fuck out my home”

Since you wanna be grown

So, there she was now, seventeen and alone

But this lil’ boy that grew in her stomach made her feel strong

The angels paid her a visit one night and let it be known

This was God’s child, woman behold the miracle

She shed tears ’cause she never believed in a spiritual

But her heart was pure and she was good

For eighteen years she raised him on Section 8 in the cold embrace of the hood

Did the best as she could, the boy was named Javari

Walked with the spirit of his father emanatin’ from body

[Chorus]

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

[Verse 3]

Back in the hood, look at lil’ Vari preach

His words were full of spirit, his truth it would always reach

He laid his hands on Toya, when niggas called her a freak

And told her that God loved her no matter who she let beat

But bein’ promiscuous is a sign that there’s something deep

That troubles her soul, the day she lets it go, she’ll find peace

She broke down admittin’ her stepfather had touched her for years

She kept it secret for fear of her mother’s grief

Now the bitterness she feels for that nigga is at a peak

And her lack of self-esteem is the reason that she would sleep with anybody

And I think twice, Javari spoke clamly

Instructin’ her to forgive her stepfather

Though he was wrong he was sick

Afflicted by evil, but the power the switch

How you feel about people who hurt you is truly a gift

The thing that can make you rich or keep you down in a ditch

If you refuse to let go off the ground, then how can you lift?

And to the sky where you belong with the most high

Now wipe those tears from your eyes, my father wants you to fly

[Chorus]

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

[Interlude]

Baby, something I been feeling in the depths of my heart

[Verse 4]

Back in the hood, Javari built up a followin’

Niggas put down they pistols eventually

And stopped swallowin’ molly pills

Instead now they bodies fill with spirit

Twelve lil’ homies soakin’ up every word that they hearin’

The neighborhood done changed and attitude and appearance

Police dumbfounded by lack of crime and they swear it’s a fluke

Not knowin’ the truth, that this a miracle

Niggas is wakin’ up with the powers that beat they fairies

So government keep a tap on Javari and those who practice adherence

To things he teaching and then comes to interference

They stormed the hood, guns out

Bust into the house that he slept in

A warrant claimin’ suspicion of drug possession

But Vari sat calmly as if he had been expectin’

Heart full of love, even for those who need to oppress him

They told him “Hands up” and he did just as they directed

They fired on him, claiming they thought he reached for a weapon

He laid on the floor breathless, blood leakin’ from his chest

Plus a bullet-hole through both of his palms, ain’t that a message?

The neighborhood was stressin’

The son that got mudered and carried away on stretcher

Body oppressor, but

Three days later, the coroner pulled the table

And what happened next is like somethin’ you see on cable or hear in a fable

He was suddenly able to open his eyes, look at him rise, the coroner was surprised

Without a word Javari walked out, went straight to the hood

The people couldn’t believe it, they froze right where they stood

As he walked by, shinin’ like a million diamond chains

God flowin’ from every inch of his frame

He said “Hear me out my niggas, let me be your proof, my father is real

And through love, homie, peace can be fountain of ville

I died for you, so that one day you would be able to see you a child of God, just like me”

Hear me out my niggas, let me be your proof, my father is real

And through love, homie, peace can be fountain of ville

I died for you, so that one day you would be able to see you a child of God, just like me

And I

[Chorus]

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go

Want you to fly, want you to fly, mhmm

Want you to fly, want you to fly, here we go, go

[Outro]

Oh, oh

Can I hear that?
