Jay-z - History

Song Rating: 8.17/10

Song lyrics:

Now that all the smoke is gone
(Lighter)
And the battles finally won
(Gimme a lighter)
Victory (Lighters up) is finally ours
(Lighters up)
History so long so long
So long, so long

In search of victory she keeps eluding me
If only we could be together momentarily
We can make love and make history
Why wont you visit me? Until she visit me
Ill be stuck with her sister her name is defeat
She gives me agony, so much agony
She brings me so much pain so much misery
Like missing your last shot and falling to your knees
As the crowd screams for the other team
I practice so hard for this moment victory dont leave
I know what this means Im stuck in this routine
Whole new different day same old thing
All I got is dreams nobody else can see
Nobody else believes, nobody else but me
Where are you victory? I need you desperately
Not just for the moment to make history

Now that all the smoke is gone
(Lighters)
And the battles finally won
(Lighters)
Victory is finally ours
History (yeah) so long so long
So long so long

So now Im flirting with d**h hustling like a G
While victory wasnt watching took chances repeatedly
As a teenage boy before acne before I got Proactiv I couldnt face she
I just threw on my hoodie and headed to the street
Thats where I met success wed live together shortly
Now success is like lust shes good to the touch
Shes good for the moment but shes never enough
Everybodys had her shes nothing like V
But success is all I got unfortunately


But Im burning down the block hoppin in and out of V
But something tells me that theres much more to see
Before I get k**ed because I cant get robbed
So before me success and d**h menage
I gotta get lost I gotta find V
We gotta be together to make history

Now that all the smoke is gone
(Lighters. Up.)
And the battles finally won
(Lighter. Up.)
Victory is finally ours
(Lighters. Up.)
History so long so long
So long so long

Now victory is mine it tastes so sweet
Shes my trophy wife youre coming with me
Well have a baby who stutters repeatedly
Well name him History hell repeat after me
Hes my legacy son of my hard work
Future of my past hell explain who I be
Rank me amongst the greats either 1 2 or 3
If I aint number one then I failed you victory
Aint in it for the fame that dies within weeks
Aint in it for the money cant take it when you leave
I wanna be remembered long after you grieve
Long after Im gone long after I breathe
I leave all I am in the hands of history
Thats my last will and testimony
This is much more than a song its a baby shower
Ive been waiting for this hour history you ours

Now that all the smoke is gone
And the battles finally won
Victory is finally ours
History so long, so long
So long, so long

Now that all the smoke is gone
And the battles finally won
Victory is finally ours
History so long, so long
So long, so long
