Endless Evening

                       After Chance the Rapper

 

We begin with laughter

Get here, bruh, intoxicated, bruh

Two drinks & now you buggin', bruh

You can't guzzle this bittersweet liquor,

You're swayin' bruh, I'm just sayin', bruh

You leanin', bruh, don't topple over

Find a seat, my intoxicated bruh

 

Cue chorus of laughter

there's a fortune in togetherness

in this endless evening, liquor never

stops flowin', everybody drink up, drink up

my cup is overflow' in this endless evening,

This endless evening, cups are never empty, endless

swayin', trash talk sayin', everybody's feelin' alright

Get here, bruh, have a chair, bruh,

you've been swayin' all night

in the warm air of the evening,

everybody's feelin' alright

in this endless evening,

tonight's the night
