      About "Holy Grail"

      Jay Z's leading single from his 12th album Magna Carta, "Holy Grail" depicts the star's love/hate relationship with fame. Jay Z teamed up with resurgent Justin Timberlake to lament how fame energizes yet destroys the two, which they captured in an eery "visual," or music video. The track made it to #4 on Billboard's Hot 100, the highest of the album Magna Carta.

      Lyrics for JAY Z - "Holy Grail"

      You'd take the clothes off my back, and I'd let you
      You'd steal the food right out my mouth
      And I'd watch you eat it, I still don't know why
      Why I love you so much, oh
      You curse my name
      In spite, to put me to shame
      Air all my laundry in the streets
      Dirty or clean
      Give it up for fame
      But I still don't know why (Don't know why)
      Why I love it so much, yeah

      And baby
      It's amazing I'm in this maze with you
      I just can't crack your code
      One day you screaming you love me loud
      The next day you're so cold
      One day you here, one day you there
      One day you care, you're so unfair
      Sipping from the cup 'till it runneth over, Holy Grail

      Uh, Blue told me to remind you niggas
      Uh, fuck that shit y’all talkin' about, I'm the nigga
      Uh, caught up in all these lights and cameras
      Uh, but look what that shit did to Hammer
      Uh, goddammit I like it
      The bright lights is enticing
      But look what it did to Tyson
      All that money in one night
      30 mill for one fight
      But soon as all the money blows
      All the pigeons take flight
      Fuck the fame, keep cheatin' on me
      What I do, I took her back, fool me twice that's my bad
      I can't even blame her for that
      'Nough to make me wanna murder, Momma please just get my bail
      I know nobody to blame
      Kurt Cobain, I did it to myself uh

      And we all just entertainers
      And we're stupid, and contagious
      Know we all just entertainers

      And baby
      It's amazing I'm in this maze with you
      I just can't crack your code
      One day you screaming you love me loud
      The next day you're so cold
      One day you here, one day you there
      One day you care, you're so unfair
      Sipping from the cup 'till it runneth over, Holy Grail

      Now I got tattoos on my body
      Psycho bitches in my lobby
      I got haters in the paper, photo shoots with paparazzi
      Can't even take my daughter for a walk
      See them by the corner store
      I feel like I'm cornered off
      Enough is enough, I'm calling this off
      Who the fuck I'm kidding though?
      I'm getting high, sittin' low
      Sliding by in that big body
      Curtains all in my window
      This fame hurt but this chain works
      I think back you asked the same person
      If this is all you had to deal with
      Nigga deal with it, this shit ain't work, this light work
      Camera snapping, my eyes hurt
      Niggas dying back where I was birthed
      Fuck your iris and the IRS
      Get the hell up off of your high horse
      You got the shit that niggas die for
      Dry yours, why you mad take the good with the bad
      Don't throw that baby out with that bath water you're still alive
      Still that nigga nigga, you survived
      You still getting bigger nigga living the life
      Vanilla wafers in a villa, illest nigga alive
      Michael Jackson thriller

      And baby
      It's amazing I'm in this maze with you
      I just can't crack the code
      One day you screaming you love me loud
      The next day you're so cold
      One day you here, one day you there
      One day you care, you're so unfair
      Sipping from your cup 'till it runneth over, Holy Grail

      You get the air of my lungs, whenever you need it
      And you take, the blade right out my heart
      Just so you can watch me bleeding, I still don’t know why (Don't know why)
      Why I love you so much
      Yeah
      And you play this game, in spite, to drive me insane
      I got it tattooed on my sleeve forever in ink, with guess who’s name
      But I still don't know why
      Why I love you so much
      Yeah

      And baby
      It's amazing I'm in this maze with you
      I just can't crack your code
      One day you screaming you love me loud
      The next day you're so cold
      One day you here, one day you there
      One day you care, you're so unfair
      Sipping from your cup 'till it runneth over, Holy Grail

      Don't know why
