Songfacts®:

  • Chloe Bailey and Gunna first sparked romance rumors after paparazzi spotted them at the Hawks vs. Mavericks game in Atlanta in October 2021. The rumored couple were seen holding hands publicly several times over the next few months, and they also teamed up for Gunna's single "You & Me." Here, Chloe expresses her love for the Atlanta rapper while urging him to fully commit.

    I ask myself why we can't be closer
    I play those same games a thousand times over
    And you crave those long nights with me, oh, don't you?
    You can leave your guard at the door
    And let me love you for the night
