Nas - Cherry Wine Lyrics and Video




Cherry Wine by Nas ft. Amy Winehouse, Music Lyrics and Video

Cherry Wine is a song by American rapper Nas, taken from his eleventh studio album, “Life Is Good“. The track, produced by Salaam Remi, features vocals by Amy Winehouse.
The song was titled after Winehouse’s guitar, which she called “cherry”.

In the Jay Martin-directed video, haunting projections of the late soulstress performing the track appear on the brick wall of a dimly lit bar room. Nas plays an emotionally tortured bartender, who spends the night watching his fantasy girl being courted by several men in the bar.

Nas ft. Amy Winehouse - Cherry Wine Lyrics

[Refrain: Amy Winehouse]
Where is he
The man who was just like me
I heard he was hiding somewhere I can’t see
Where is he
The man who was just like me
Heard he was hiding somewhere I can’t see
And I’m alone and I realize that when I get home
I wanna go through my red and my cherry

Yes I’m alone and I realize when I get home
I wanna go through my red and my cherry

[Verse 1: Nas]
I want someone who like the champagne I like
My a-alike
Someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night
She teach me how to live, she ain’t afraid of life
Not easily impressed with the rich and famous life
Cause she done been there and heard all the rumors before
She loves art, she ride out with me on my music tour
She like the herb’s natural medicine
She cooking good
She tell me everything is cool when it ain’t looking good
For real, the world so ill
Yo I want a girl so real
Who not after material wealth but get dough still
Or maybe an educator, a lady with etiquette
Who can be from out the hood or even work for the President
As long as there’s no selfishness
Yes, as long as her love for the people is deep rooted and evident
You can be easily recruited, you’re heaven sent
Your smile put me at ease
You’re the woman I need but where is she

[Refrain]

[Verse 2: Nas]
I hate when people write me hostile texts on account of my lifestyle’s perception
Invade my personal life
Out of the question, what are they expecting
I be trying to reply and they never suppose I get my quiet time in
They think forever I’m rolling in dough
Swimming in a pool of cash
God, wouldn’t they know or am I a fool or ass
I’m well known, got people coming at me mad
I had to tell homes
I don’t keep a cell phone, my bad
I drag off the L and try to silence it
The noise in my head
The curse of the talented
Strong communicator, vagabond
I’d gallivant around the equator
If that would get me off the radar
It’s so intense, I’m on my Lilo and Stitch
Pour my Pinot Grigio and Cris with some lime what is this
An immaculate version of Me and My Bitch by Biggie
With all respect cause you the only one that gets me

[Refrain]

[Bridge: Nas]
Yeah, yeah, let’s pour some cherry wine
Everything’s good, everything’s fine
Yeah, yeah we bring it every time
Yeah, pour a little cherry wine
Yeah, Hey yo Salaam, yea, I think they know the time
Everything’s good, everything’s fine
Yeah, pour a little cherry wine, yeah

Life is good, life is good, yeah
Life is good, no matter what
Life is good, life is good
Life is good, yeah
No matter what
Life is good

[Refrain]
