  • [Chorus]
    Never thought id see the day when you wasn't by my side.
    Listen I was down for you girl put you first in my world
    And I thought you were down too right
    It's like you didn't want me to take off, take off, take off.
    It's like you didn't want me to take off, take off.
    But now I'm leaving.

    I keep my life in a lime light, pap lights, award shows, red floors, booji bars
    Yes its what I'm meant for
    And we ain't quite the same as we used to be
    My life's in the public eye, I know you don't want yours to be
    Truthfully, 2years in its still new to me
    I wouldn't say your comfortable, I would say your used to me
    Hense separating doesn't seem real
    They tell me chip keep the girl that you had before the deal- Chyeaah.
    You can call this my reff flow, could this decision might determine how the game goes
    Every time you get use me being here, I go. On that note that's my que to go.

    [Chorus]

    If it ain't a push forward its a slow down
    It's kind of ironic that I slow down,
    It's best that I go now rather than later
    Before you claim I'm too busy chasing that paper -it's true talk
    And to say its over there ain't no good words,
    I don't think anybody breaks up on good terms
    So I'ma hit the club (yep)
    Get my mingle on (yep) get my single on and throw it in a single song- Chyeaah.
    And you could call this my reff flow, could this decision might determine how to game goes
    Every time you get used to me being here, I go. On that note that's my que to go.

    [Chorus]

    They always ask me if I'm single in interviews
    I was too scared to say I'm into you. moving like a single dude
    Didn't ever lie but I skipped the truth
    Its past breaks now, fuck it- interlude.
    On my own feeling like I've got a point to prove
    Hungry but I don't wanna have my cake and eat it too
    And it's not that I ain't feelin you
    I'm leaving us, I ain't leaving you
    And you call this my reff flow , could this decision might determine how the game goes
    Every time you get used to me being here, I go. On that note that's my que to go.
