lyrics

(Chorus)
Girl, wont tell you I love you (I love you)
Oh, my words get me in trouble (In trouble) (yeah)
So I’m not sayin I love you (I love you)
No, my words get me in trouble (I love you) (yeah)

VERSE 1
Always rushin to fall in
I got addicted to the rush
Not out of lust, out of what I could see in the future for us
Prophecyin’, I’m Isaiah plus Nostradamus
Drain my cups when I see you I’ll be drunk in love
But drunk drivers crash, I was fifteen, got smashed
I turned 16, she bounced, she was my fo’ty ounce, new leaf turned over, sobered up and I would not relapse
Then seventeen, I met Anne, and it happened all again,
Now I’m back on the juice, my lips were loose, let it slip and swam in a ocean, emotion, thinkin’ rings with no coasters
Devotion, it cost us, broke up, both heartbroken
The pattern I’m caught in from spells that I’ve spoken, yea
I tend to speak before I really think
I tend to think before I’m ready to
So I’m not tryin’ anything wit you
But I’m here to grow, if you’re willing to let me, new

(Chorus)

VERSE 2
It’s a birthday party, in a karaoke bar, don’t know your name or your sign but I see you shining like a star
Now who you are? The only one dancing in the room, girl (girl) unashamed to show your moves, girl, ah
You dance for you, never mind the attention, not the type to need to get your validation from affection, plenty men pointed in your direction but you are guardin your space (haha)
I mean you cut down the scrubs in your face (garden)
First stairwell conversation, walkin’ you to your car but got a different destination in mind, I’ll take time to let it build then a couple months later you’re all in my phone billin, but still we’re just chillin
I’m out on tour, you’re stayin up late so that we could talk tho
Only Chinese girl I’ve spotted in Roscoe’s chicken and waffles
And when you rock that DOPE snapback that I had bought you
I caught myself, I almost said it, girl, said I, I, I

(Chorus)

VERSE 3
I see the possibilities; you and me could really be
If you’re down to join the team, the two of us could run the league
But I thought that before, it turned out untrue, I jumped the gun and left bodies to boot
Played robbers and cops with emotional loot, left the vault messy ran off in the coupe, so I’m not gonna shoot, you’re not a target to me
But I see what you’re doin with that cut off Stussy tee
Some swag in your whole persona plus your momma raised you well relationship good with your father so no issues I can tell, can I be real?
I’m not searchin for my next ex.
I’m lookin for my first last.
And you’re first class, I mean you fly extra, I mean you’re extra fly, so can I holla atcha?
