Lyrics to “Solitaire”

I released this joint back in May, but I came across the lyrics of it tonight; so I decided to post them. Below is the original description we had of the song, and then after that are the lyrics.

Song Description: “In “Solitaire” Scheme talks about the experiences he might have missed on while pursuing his dream. If you ever have had something in life you are passionate about, you understand that most of the times it takes a great deal of sacrifice to accomplish your goals. What were once priorities, now become after thoughts, and what were once dreams, now become a reality. At the end, it’s all worth it, even though you may lose some on the way there. Either you follow your path, or you let them deter you. Produced by Chicago’s own ILL Brown, the song captivates the good and the bad experiences one might miss out on the road to success.”

Solitaire (Lyrics)

Verse 1

I pray to God that I’ll understand…

the mistakes, and all the work this shit takes…

the memories I jotted down…

and all the times I been late…

friends I had to cancel on…

questions I would answer wrong…

had to write paper, instead I sat and wrote another song…

Pictures I was never in, moments that I never lived…

Bitches I was never with, and bitching from the one I’m with…

Secrets I was never told…trust I never seem to gain…

Parties that I didn’t make…and coca that I didn’t slang…

Corners I ain’t kick it in…honeys I ain’t kick it with…

Homies that were going tp die, and never got to chill with them…

flicas that I didn’t see…weekends that I didn’t drink….

truths I didn’t have to tell, and lies I didn’t have to think…

candles that I didn’t blow, birthdays that I didn’t sing…

dinners that I didn’t eat, and friends I didn’t get to meet…

laughter that I never heard, hearts I didn’t get to mend…

time I never seem to have, but time is all I seem to spend.

 Hook

Go ahead blame it on me…

I know I wasn’t there…

I didn’t make it…

so you thought I never cared…

It’s never that…I was just tryna make it outta here…

Need your understanding….

While I’m standing right across from here.

Go ahead blame it on me…

I know I wasn’t there…

I didn’t make it…

so you thought I never cared…

It’s never that…I was just tryna make it outta here…

 Use to have a table full, now I’m playing solitaire.

 Verse 2

I pray to God that I’ll understand…

the mistakes, and all the work this shit takes…

the memories I jotted down…

and all the times I been late…

promises I didn’t keep…hearts I didn’t get to break…

nights I didn’t go to sleep…and mornings that I didn’t eat…

games I never got to watch, bars I didn’t go to chill…

money that I didn’t spend, and time I didn’t get to kill…

dreams I didn’t fulfill, nights I didn’t hold steel…

Colors I ain’t represent…in corners that our cold still…

clubs I didn’t party in…bottles that I never popped…

relationships that didn’t start, and ones that never seem to stop…

calls I didn’t pick up..banks I didn’t stick up…

vices that I never saw, and habits I ain’t pick up…

nephews that I didn’t teach, sisters that I didn’t see…

momma that I didn’t love, and poppa didn’t get to speak…

cook outs that I never made…sports I didn’t get to play…

thoughts I didnt get to have, and words I never got to say.

 Hook

Go ahead blame it on me…

I know I wasn’t there…

I didn’t make it…

so you thought I never cared…

It’s never that…I was just tryna make it outta here…

Need your understanding….

While I’m standing right across from here.

Go ahead blame it on me…

I know I wasn’t there…

I didn’t make it…

so you thought I never cared…

It’s never that…I was just tryna make it outta here…

 Use to have a table full, now I’m playing solitaire.

Verse 3

I pray to God that I’ll understand…

the mistakes, and all the work this shit takes…

the memories I jotted down…

and all the times I been late…

family I didn’t see…jokes I didn’t get to crack…

degrees I haven’t got to yet, and foes I never got to smack…

dates I never made it too, numbers that I never got…

Women that I never called, and enemies I never shot…

Letters that I never wrote, feelings that I didn’t share…

Loving like I didn’t know, and feeling what was never there…

summer days I didn’t chill…winter nights I wasn’t cold…

dinner times I didn’t make, and holidays I wasn’t home…

cousins I ain’t kick it with…uncles I ain’t get to mourn…

sun I didn’t get to see, and nights I only heard the storm…

tears I didn’t get to wipe, fears I didn’t get to know…

pain I didn’t get to feel, and greed that didn’t get to grow…

times I didn’t get to live, moments that I never shared…

wouldn’t trade it for the world, cuz if you did, you wouldn’t dare.

 Hook

Go ahead blame it on me…

I know I wasn’t there…

I didn’t make it…

so you thought I never cared…

It’s never that…I was just tryna make it outta here…

Need your understanding….

While I’m standing right across from here.

Go ahead blame it on me…

I know I wasn’t there…

I didn’t make it…

so you thought I never cared…

It’s never that…I was just tryna make it outta here…

 Use to have a table full, now I’m playing solitaire.
