  • Yeah
    Be careful, be careful, be careful with me
    Yeah, look

    I wanna get married, like the Currys, Steph and Ayesha shit
    But we more like Belly, Tommy and Keisha shit
    Gave you TLC, you wanna creep and shit
    Poured out my whole heart to a piece of shit
    Man, I thought you would've learned your lesson
    'Bout likin' pictures, not returnin' texts
    I guess it's fine, man, I get the message
    You still stutter after certain questions
    You keep in contact with certain exes
    Do you, though, trust me, nigga, it's cool, though
    Said that you was workin', but you're out here chasin' culo
    And putas, chillin' poolside, livin' two lives
    I could've did what you did to me to you a few times
    But if I did decide to slide, find a nigga
    Fuck him, suck his dick, you would've been pissed
    But that's not my M.O., I'm not that type of bitch
    And karma for you is gon' be who you end up with
    Don't make me sick, nigga

    The only man, baby, I adore
    I gave you everything, what's mine is yours
    I want you to live your life of course
    But I hope you get what you dyin' for
    Be careful with me, do you know what you doin'?
    Whose feelings that you hurtin' and bruisin'?
    You gon' gain the whole world
    But is it worth the girl that you're losin'?
    Be careful with me
    Yeah, it's not a threat, it's a warnin'
    Be careful with me
    Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it
    Be careful with me

    Care for me, care for me
    Always said that you'd be there for me, there for me
    Boy, you better treat me carefully, carefully, look

    I was here before all of this
    Guess you actin' out now, you got an audience
    Tell me where your mind is, drop a pin, what's the coordinates?
    You might have a fortune, but you lose me, you still gon' be misfortunate, nigga
    Tell me, this love's got you this fucked up in the head
    You want some random bitch up in your bed?
    She don't even know your middle name, watch her 'cause she might steal your chain
    You don't want someone who loves you instead? I guess not though
    It's blatant disrespect, you nothin' like the nigga I met
    Talk to me crazy and you quick to forget
    You even got me trippin', you got me lookin' in the mirror different
    Thinkin' I'm flawed because you inconsistent
    Between a rock and a hard place, the mud and the dirt
    It's gon' hurt me to hate you, but lovin' you's worse
    It all stops so abrupt, we start switchin' it up
    Teach me to be like you so I can not give a fuck
    Free to mess with someone else, I wish these feelings could melt
    'Cause you don't care about a thing except your mothafuckin' self
    You make me sick, nigga

    The only man, baby, I adore
    I gave you everything, what's mine is yours
    I want you to live your life of course
    But I hope you get what you dyin' for
    Be careful with me, do you know what you doin'?
    Whose feelings that you're hurtin' and bruisin'?
    You gon' gain the whole world
    But is it worth the girl that you're losin'?
    Be careful with me
    Yeah, it's not a threat, it's a warnin'
    Be careful with me
    Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it
    Be careful with me Writer/s: Belcalis Almanzar, Mathew Samuels, Anderson Hernandez, Jordan Thorpe, Marilyn Bergman, Alan Bergman, Robert Diggs, Lauryn Hill, Clifford Smith, Lamont Hawkins, Dennis Coles, Gary Grice, Jason Hunter, Russell Jones, Corey Woods, Marvin Hamlisch
