J. Cole – Note To Self MP3 download 

The final song on 2014 Forest Hills Drive completes Cole’s main outlook on life: Love one another and life will fall into place.

In true ROC fashion (“Blueprint,” “My 1st Song” & “Last Call”), the rest of the song is used as the credits for the album as Cole takes the time to thank and show love to each and every person who took part in the album.

Major parts of the “thank you’s” is inspired by Cuba Gooding Jr.’s Oscar acceptance speech.

[Intro]
1, 2, 3, 4
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

[Chorus]
And wherever we go
And whatever we do
And whatever we see
And whoever we be
It don’t matter, it don’t matter
I don’t mind cause you don’t matter
I don’t mind cause I don’t matter
(And don’t shit matter) You’ll see in the end

[Verse]
I’ve got a feeling that there’s somethin’ more
Something that holds us together
Something that holds us together
The strangest feeling but I can’t be sure
Something that’s old as forever
Something that’s old as forever
Love, love, love, love

[Chorus]
And wherever we go
And whatever we do
And whatever we see
And whoever we be
It don’t matter, ahh, it don’t matter
I don’t mind cause you don’t matter, ay
I don’t mind cause I don’t matter
(And don’t shit matter) You’ll see in the end, ahh!
