From Time

Charted: 56 67
  • What's up? Been a minute since we kicked it, you've been caught up
    With them bitches, I don't get it, you're a star love
    You shouldn't have to deal with that, I'd never make you feel like that

    'Cause I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
    That's why you trust me, I know you've been through more than most of us
    So what are you? What are you, what are you so afraid of?
    Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

    Yeah I needed to hear that shit, I hate when you're submissive
    Passive aggressive when we're texting, I feel the distance
    I look around the peers that surround me, these niggas tripping
    I like when money makes a difference but don't make you different
    Started realizing a couple places I can take it
    I want to get back to when I was that kid in the basement
    I want to take it deeper than money, pussy, vacation
    And influence a generation that's lacking in patience
    I've been dealing with my dad, speaking a lack of patience
    Just me and my old man getting back to basics
    We've been talking 'bout the future and time that we wasted
    When he put that bottle down, girl that nigga's amazing
    Well, fuck it, we had a couple Coronas
    We might have rolled a white paper, just something to hold us
    We even talked about you and our couple of moments
    He said we should hash it out like a couple of grown ups
    You a flower child, beautiful child, I'm in your zone
    Looking like you came from the 70's on your own
    My mother is 66 and her favorite line to hit me with is
    Who the fuck wants to be 70 and alone?
    Y'all don't even know what you want from love anymore
    I search for something I'm missing and disappear when I'm bored
    But girl, what qualities was I looking for before?
    Who you settling for? Who better for you than the boy, huh?

    I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
    That's why you trust me, I know you been through more than most of us
    So what are you? What are you, what are you so afraid of?
    Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

    Uh, thinking 'bout Texas back when Porsche used to work at Treasures
    Or further back then that, before I had the Houston leverage
    When I got Summer a Michael Kors with my momma's debit
    A weak attempt at flexing, I'll never forget it
    'Cause that night I played her three songs
    Then we talked about something we disagreed on
    Then she started telling me how I'll never be as big as Trey Songz
    Boy was she wrong, that was just negative energy for me to feed off
    Now it's therapeutic blowing money in a galleria
    Or Beverly Center Macy's where I discovered Bria
    Landmarks to the muses that inspired the music
    When I could tell it was sincere without trying to prove it
    The one that I needed was Courtney from Hooters on Peachtree
    I've always been feeling like she was the piece to complete me
    Now she engaged to be married, what's the rush on commitment?
    Know we were going through some shit, name a couple that isn't
    Remember our talk in the parking lot at the Ritz
    Girl I thought we had it all planned out, guess I fucked up the vision
    Learning the true consequences of my selfish decisions
    When you find out how I'm living I just hope I'm forgiven
    It seems like you don't want this love anymore
    I'm acting out in the open it's hard for you to ignore
    But girl, what qualities was I looking for before?
    Who you settling for, who better for you than the boy, huh?

    I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
    That's why you trust me, I know you been through more than most of us
    So what are you? What are you, what are you so afraid of?
    Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

    "Been Baka aka Not Nice from time, G
    Been a East Side ting
    Scarborough ting from time, G
    Been have up di ting dem from time, G
    So I don't know what's wrong with these
    Little wasteman out here eh?
    Y'all need to know yourself" Writer/s: Aubrey Graham, Jason Beck, Noah Shebib, Jhene Aiko
