Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Can't Hold Us


Return of the Mac, get em

What it is

What it does

What it is

What it isn't

Looking for a better way to get up out of bed

Instead of getting on the internet and checking out who hit me, get up

Thrift shop, pimp strut walking

Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious

Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby

Sweater game nope nope y'all can't copy

Yup, Bad, moonwalking

This here, is our party

My posse's been on Broadway

And we did it our way

Grown music

I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it

And yet I'm on

Let that stage light go and shine on down

Got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style

Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds

But, I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town

Trust me, on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustlin'

Chasing dreams since I was 14

With the four track bussing

Halfway cross that city with the backpack

Fat cat, crushing labels out here

Nah they can't tell me nothing

We give that to the people

Spread it across the country

Labels out here

Nah they can't tell me nothing

We give it to the people

Spread it across the country

[Hook x2: Ray Dalton]

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we'll fight till it's over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us

Like the ceiling can't hold us

[Verse 2]

Now can I kick it, thank you

Yeah I'm so damn grateful

I grew up, really wanted gold fronts

But that's what you get when Wu-Tang raised you

Y'all can't stop me

Go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat

And I'm eating at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week

Raw. Time to go off. I'm gone!

Deuces goodbye. I got a world to see, and my girl she wanna see Rome

Caesar make you a believer

Nah I never ever did it for a throne

That validation comes from giving it back to the people.

Nah sing a song and it goes like

Raise those hands, this is our party

We came here to live life like nobody was watching

I got my city right behind me, if I fall, they got me

Learn from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching I said


[Bridge x2]

Na na na na na na na na

And all my people say
