    On my way, on my way, on my way down
    On my way, on my way, on my way down
    You're the one that was tryna keep me way down
    But like the sun, I know you know I found my way back 'round

    [J. Cole:]
    They tell me I should fix my grill cause I got money now
    I ain't gon' sit around and front like I ain't thought about it
    A perfect smile is more appealing but it's funny how
    My shit is crooked look at how far I done got without it
    I keep my twisted grill, just to show the kids it's real
    We ain't picture perfect but we worth the picture still
    I got smart, I got rich, and I got bitches still
    And they all look like my eyebrows: thick as hell
    Love yourself, girl, or nobody will
    Though you're a woman, I don't know how you deal
    With all the pressure to look impressive and go out in heels, I feel for you
    Killing yourself to find a man that'll kill for you
    You wake up, put makeup on, stare in the mirror
    But it's clear that you can't face what's wrong, no need to fix
    What God already put his paint brush on, your roommate yelling
    ""Why you gotta take so long?"" What it's like to have a crooked smile
    This crooked smile

    [Chorus 1]

    [J. Cole:]
    To all the women with the flaws, know it's hard my darling
    You wonder why you're lonely and your man's not calling
    You keep falling victim cause you're insecure
    And when I tell you that you're beautiful you can't be sure
    Cause he don't seem to want you back and it's got you asking
    So all you see is what you lacking, not what you packing
    Take it from a man that loves what you got
    And baby girl you're a star, don't let 'em tell you you're not
    Now is it real? Eyebrows, fingernails, hair
    Is it real? if it's not, girl you don't care
    Cause what's real is something that the eyes can't see
    That the hands can't touch, that them broads can't be, and that's you
    Never let 'em see you frown
    And if you need a friend to pick you up, I'll be around
    And we can ride with the windows down, the music loud
    I can tell you ain't laughed in a while, but I wanna see that crooked smile

    [Chorus 1]

    [Chorus 2 - J. Cole (TLC):]
    Crooked smile, we could style on 'em (back 'round)
    Crooked smile, we could style on 'em
    (You're the one that was tryna keep me way down)
    (But like the sun, I know you know I found my way back round...)

    [J. Cole:]
    We don't look nothin' like the people on the screen
    You know the movie stars, picture perfect beauty queens
    But we got dreams and we got the right to chase 'em
    Look at the nation, that's a crooked smile braces couldn't even straighten
    Seem like half the race is either on probation
    Or in jail, wonder why we inhale
    Cause we in hell already - I ask if my skin pale
    Would I then sell like Eminem or Adele?
    But one more time for the 'Ville
    And fuck all of that beef shit, nigga let's make a mil'
    Hey officer man, we don't want nobody getting killed
    Just open up that cell, let my brother out of jail
    I got money for the bail now, well now
    If you asking will I tell now? Hey, hell naw - I ain't snitching cause
    Man, they get them niggas stitches now"

                                thanks for being real! giving us girls confidence to embrace who we are! Not everything in social media is real. its a shame that the world is so sensitize to certain things and topics. one message, Dont take it personal
