Ladies Love Lyrics: Goapele & Drake's "Closer"

It's not very often that two versions of the same song make me happy. Such is the case with the original "Closer" by Goapele and the remix by Drake. Both versions are dope in their own right. I can and do rock with both of them. They are timeless songs in my world. Get into these lyrics and the beat. 

"Closer to my dreams
It's coming over me

I'm gettin' higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm getting higher and higher
Feel it in my sleep

Some times it feels like I'll never go pass here
Some times it feels like I'm stuck forever and ever

But, I'm going higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm goin' higher and higher
I can almost reach

Some times you just have to let it go (Let it go, let it go)
Leaving all my fears to burn down
Push them all away so I can move on
Closer to my dreams
Feel it all over my being
Close your eyes and see what you believe

I'm happy as long as we're apart
Then I'm moving on to my dreams..."

"Ex girl stripping
I can't stop her
New girl tripping but I can't drop her
'Cause I need something to balance out the fact
That it's hard to find a woman when you' talented and black
When you hollering at labels
And they silencing you back
'Cause you fail to thoroughly discuss some violence in ya track
Gunshot for the young yacht owner
See there's everybody else then there's one top loner
First place is often the worst place
But fuck it I love it here I call it my birthplace
Whenever I walk in they makin' the worst face
Surrounded by Filipinos I think of the worst case
Watch blue and green diamonds I call it the earth face
I'm getting ya cake I tell you how ya dessert taste
I get a dessert plate
Y'all eat pedigree as ya meal
I've been Urkel for some years it's better being Jaleel
Though I rock lean snap it's better being this real
It's better driving a car with the letter B in the wheel..."
