  • If I'm out at the bar havin' a night on the town
    Life of the party, pourin' shots of the brown
    And you see me from the street but I don't turn around
    Would you say, "Hi"? Would you keep going?

    If I told your family that you didn't mean nothing
    If you posted about it and I didn't even comment
    If the songs weren't true, but you still feel something
    Would you still come looking for me?

    Oh, don't go reaching out
    'Cause you can't have everything
    Your head and your heart won't feel the same
    Even if it feels like it every time

    Don't check on me
    If we're not together, then it's probably for a reason
    Every heartbreak has its season
    It ain't always summer in June

    Might run across your mind but don't worry 'bout me, no
    My heart is back in one piece, it ain't skipped a beat, no
    Feeling rested up, I ain't missing sleep, no oh
    Don't take it personal if I can't reply now
    I'm distant 'cause I don't wanna be reached now
    Won't let the ghosts of our past weigh my future down
    I'm liberated
    Energy's like a circle, it comes back around
    Reciprocated
    Don't shed no more tears
    Won't gain no empathy from me
    In the upcoming years
    Oh, I don't need your pity
    Don't check on me

    Oh, don't check on me
    If we're not together, then it's probably for a reason
    Every heartbreak has its season
    And it looks like winter for you

    Ain't call you back 'cause I let it go
    I had to focus energy and just let it flow
    And when we ride low, we're already gone
    It wouldn't mean anymore to me now
    I know it hurts you so bad just to see me happy
    That I finally moved on, and you thought it wouldn't happen
    At times I used to cry, wouldn't know when I was laughing
    But I act like I didn't notice

    Oh, don't go reaching out
    'Cause you can't have everything
    You can't kill a flame with gasoline
    Even if it feels like it every time (No matter how hard you try)

    Don't check on me
    If we're not together, then it's probably for a reason
    Every heartbreak has its season
    It ain't always summer in June
    Don't check on me
    If we're not together, then it's probably for a reason
    Every heartbreak has its season
    It ain't always summer in June Writer/s: Atia Boggs, Christopher Brown, Justin Bieber, Patrizio Pigliapoco, Sheldon Ferguson
