Ode To Drake

Rating: 4.8
To be a childhood star
Knowing you've surpassed the bar
To see the moon beyond the sky
Totally sober and not high

To hear the music beyond song
Truly trusting you haven't gone wrong
To smell fear and be rough
Always fighting to be tough
To touch all that is pure love

To be the one and only Drake Knowing you've never been a fake To rise beyond the star so bright Keeping bang-up values in sight. Really marvellous

To be the one and only Drake Knowing you've never been a fake To rise beyond the star so bright Keeping bang-up values in sight - - - - - - When one knows his own worth, knows that his principles and values are not fake and goes on pursuing those values, he is a kind of his own and he is really a star.
