  • I know you've been goin' through some things, uh huh
    I know you don't even love the same, do you, do you?
    I know you've been runnin' on empty, runnin' on empty

    The way you move it's like you could use a vacation
    Drinking Hen' and the harder you dance
    I swear right now it look like you on a vacation
    Gotta get away, make it happen
    Whatever happened just had to happen
    On vacation, yeah
    I know you've been, I know you've been

    Dancin', dancin' dancin' like you fucking got a reason
    Dancing like it's something to believe in
    Dancing like it's fuckin' dancing season
    Blame it on the alcohol or blame it on sativa
    The harder your heart keep beating
    Only feel bad while you're thinkin'
    Pop pop pop like Pepsi Coke, the best we smoke
    Plus the tan look like you flew in from Mexico
    Go go, let me see how wild it get
    Bustin' wide as it get
    You need to be taken care of and pampered
    But just like a pamper, he on that childish shit
    I know you've been silencing your phone
    (Silencing your phone, ignoring calls from home)
    I know you've been tryna get along
    What's up, it's on, no games, we grown
    I know you feel like sometimes that y'all don't speak the same language
    I know that you just wanna let it go with all the bitches that you came with

    I know you've been going through some thangs, wanna get away
    Baby let me be your vacation
    The other chick you've been fuckin' with is a trip
    You know she be playin'
    Baby I am just saying
    I know you know I am down for whatever, yeah
    You know I'm just here to make you feel better, yeah
    Take a load off on my private island
    Come inside and go into hiding
    I know that you've been sacrificing your time
    And need time to unwind and let go
    So let go and let's go and let's roll and we roll

    Excited, activated get ignited
    So many charges on my card oh God I think I got indicted
    Get a, get a night, get a day, get a room, get a place
    Get a drink, pop a bottle, maybe we can get away
    You a star, you need space
    We can shoot up by the town
    Have you ever been to Texas?
    South By Southwest
    Where we can smoke a zip like we can't get arrested
    Where they might know us off any intersection
    I mean baby I know you've been, wanna be that baddest
    Wanna be with somebody who ain't never had it
    No status, just all cinematics, you just got casted

    I know you've been crying and poutin'
    Know you're tired of arguing
    But no screaming and shouting
    And you know we on a roll like we did good in college
    Throwin' hundreds and thousands
    Like they not hundreds and thousands
    Why? Cause I know you've been going through some things
    (I know you've been going through some things you can't explain
    Which your may think that shit insane
    I know you just tryna maintain, that shit is lame, you can't complain)
    I know you don't even love the same, do you, do you?
    (Don't love the same, I know you've been diving through pain
    I know you runnin' so crazy, I know you runnin' on empty
    That shit can fuck with your mente
    I know this shit, don't you tempt me, I know you)

    The way you move it's like you could use a vacation
    Drinking Hen' and the harder you dance
    I swear right now it look like you on a vacation
    Gotta get away, make it happen
    Whatever happened just had to happen
    On vacation, yeah
    I know you've been, I know you've been

    I know it look like like you need a vacation
    How 'bout Hawaii, maybe Jamaica, maybe Asia
    Taking you places 'lotta nigga can't take ya
    Don't forget the make up
    Yeah Writer/s: Dijon Isaiah Mcfarlane, Dwane Weir, Earl Patrick Taylor, Jhene Aiko Chilombo, Sean Michael Anderson
