  • I wanna know how we became so distant girl
    The way we fell in love it was almost instant
    I'm tryna find a way around it
    Girl tell me how you feel about it
    You still love me, that's the way it's sounding
    Thank God I would have never found this, I doubt it
    I'm there for you if you allow it
    Girl you know I gotta keep you around me
    All this paper we counting, blazing these ounces
    Spending on you baby no matter what the amount is
    Now you wanna know what's gotten into me, what's changed?
    I guess I had a hard time showing it at first but

    Baby it's been that way
    Baby it's been that way
    Baby I still feel the same
    Something I gotta maintain
    Listen to me when I say
    Baby it's always, always, always been that way
    It's always been that way
    (Didn't I tell you girl?)
    It's always been that way
    Baby I still feel the same
    Something I gotta maintain
    Listen to me when I say
    It's always been that way

    How did we become so distant?
    Like I'm the one to blame and you're innocent
    I try to make a way, make a difference, but
    Some things don't change, I can't complain
    I try not to think about you
    What can I say, everytime I get near you
    I want that old thing back, now bring it to me
    Shorty keep telling me what to do about you
    Then she got jealous soon as she knew about you
    She don't never want to see us go through round two
    (Cut her off) Cut her off that's what I'm doing now, you
    Told me I should go out and do my thing
    (Damn right!) Damn right I do my thing
    Now you wanna know what's gotten into me, what's changed?
    But baby none change

    Baby it's been that way
    Baby it's been that way
    Baby I still feel the same
    Something I gotta maintain
    Listen to me when I say
    Baby it's always, always, always been that way
    It's always been that way
    (Didn't I tell you girl?)
    It's always been that way
    Baby I still feel the same
    Something I gotta maintain
    Listen to me when I say
    It's always been that way
    Oh yeah, it's always been that way
    Oh, yeah, it's always been that way Writer/s: Bryson Tiller, Evon Barnes, Timothy Mosley
