  • Just hung up the phone and I
    Could already tell that you're comin' home intoxicated, ooh
    So you better take your time with me
    'Cause I remember last time you wouldn't make love to me
    Then you fell fast asleep (I hope you niggas sleep)
    Wouldn't even talk to me, no
    Say, say I'm so crazy, baby (I'm so crazy)

    I wanted you to race my mind, I got the keys
    Please, for me
    Since you're comin' home intoxicated, oh
    For me, please
    I wanted you to race my mind, yeah

    They said you got high as the sky
    Up all night just dancing, huh
    I hit you like, "Please come home to me" (come home to me)
    But you're not understanding, no
    You gon' make me beg, make me plead (plead)
    I wanted you to race my mind, I got the keys
    I just figured you could make time for me
    Since you're comin' home intoxicated, oh, yeah

    Race my mind, I got the keys, please

    Picture me rolling through downtown in a A4
    Picture my signature on a pair of some J 4s
    Picture me carin' what niggas sayin' on Wi-Fi they don't pay for
    Knew I needed love, but I think I value the hate more
    To push towards things that I prayed for
    Retrograde energy shifts are what I was made for
    And don't you dare hit me back with no "K, sure"
    Soon as I tell you that you the one I would wait for
    You too saucy, too flossy, you moved in and moved off me
    All to be with niggas who just startin' to move bossy
    Maybe I just handled you too softly
    Them boys got no Kelis in they blood
    If your whole heart wasn't in it, I know a piece of it was
    Posted that pic you sent me, it wasn't recent enough
    How I'm supposed to wife it? You not Ayesha enough
    You love getting T'd up
    Love showin' the cakes, you know that they eat it up
    Love touching the road as soon as it's heatin' up
    Invited you over, you said that you showin' up
    All them spelling mistakes, I know that you drunk as fuck
    All them other mistakes, let's let it be what it was
    (Them niggas just can't understand it)
    I want you to change my mind, I'm praying you pulling up
    Know who you be around, I know that they teaming up
    Telling you you better off leavin' me in the dust

    I wanted you to race my mind, I got the keys
    Please, for me
    Since you're comin' home intoxicated, oh
    For me, please
    I wanted you to race my mind, mind Writer/s: Aubrey Graham, Christopher Wallace, David Axelrod, Nile Goveia, Noah Shebib, Osten Harvey, Scott Zhang
