lyrics

Now baby I don’t need to tell you that we livin in a world of contradictions
And when you look in my direction I cant tell if its love or addiction
It came in a bottle of snake oil, and now I got it stuck up in my system
And I don’t know if youre my poison or my medicine or if it meant anything to you

Its been a while, but I didn’t know how to start this
I always say the first two lines are the hardest
Me? Im okay- I stay hustling my hardest
But regardless, still playing the part of a starving artist
and you know my appetite too big to fit the role
pockets short like leprechauns but ima get the gold
how many ends does it take to justify the means?
im tryna make ends meet, but I aint got the means
I never had much baby, not even growin up
I shared a room with my sister till I was old enough
I knew the world was full of hatred but I chose to love
But didn’t know that love had chosen me until you showed up
And from the second I saw you I noticed something different
But played it cool, played it safe and I just paid attention
Honey got me feelin woozy while we splittin doobies
3 am & we still getting high and watching movies

Hook:

Now baby I don’t need to tell you that we livin in a world of contradictions
And when you look in my direction I cant tell if its love or addiction
It came in a bottle of snake oil, and now I got it stuck up in my system
And I don’t know if youre my poison or my medicine or if it meant anything to you

So we would get together- & get to know each other
It wasn’t hard it was like we already knew each other
Expand our minds & we would dilate our time together
And in due time or by design decide to get together
And in the rainy weather, we had our pain and pleasure
When we were young, we hurt each other, we didn’t know no better
But we changed for the better, baby we grew together
Nothing I wouldn’t do for you cause no one knew me better
But you had your own issues- and you know I had mine
We fought and made some mistakes, but we cant go back in time
You never knew what you wanted- I only wanted you
But didnt really understand the things that you were going through
And so you left and I moved on, but you came back to me
You left again a year later, and then came back to me
how many times we gonna do this baby, actually?
Before I gotta tell you that your ass aint coming back to me?

Hook:

We spent some time apart- cause nothing lasts forever
But I must love the pain- cause we got back together
--And I guess that nothing changed, cause we both feel the same
With love as real as this you play for keeps or play a different game
And you can call it fate or call it by a different name
But you and I got something that you know comes from a different plane
You tried them other guys but all them other cats is lames
and you said it yourself, compared to them im on a different plane
And so we do the dance again and now its all good
I cant let go of my best friend but man I probably should
But man im hooked and the feelin got me crazy
tryna stick it out even though I know she actin shady
Thought it was strange you started hangin with that lame
And tried to play a playa like a playa didn’t know the game
And when I told you get the fuck out cause of all the pain
I really meant just give me time before you come on back again
