  • I can see it in your eyes, you're angry
    Regret got shit on what you're feeling now
    Mad 'cause he ain't like me
    Oh you mad 'cause nobody ever did it like me
    All the care I would take, all the love that we made
    Now you're trying to find somebody to replace what I gave to you
    It's a shame you didn't keep it, Alicia, Katia
    I know that you gon' hear this, I'm the man
    Yeah I said it, bitch I'm the man
    Don't you forget it
    The way you walk, that's me
    The way you talk, that's me
    The way you've got your hair up, did you forget that's me?
    And the voice in your speaker right now, that's me
    And the voice in your ear, that's me
    Can't you see that I made it? Yeah I made it
    First I made you who you are, then I made it
    And you're wasted with your ladies
    Yeah I'm the reason why you always getting faded

    Take a shot for me, ooh
    Take a shot for me, ooh
    Take a shot for me
    A shot for me
    A shot for me

    Okay look, I'm honest
    Girl I can't lie, I miss you
    You and the music were the only things that I commit to
    I never cheated, for the record, back when I was with you
    But you believe in everything but me girl, I don't get you
    She says I know you changed, I never see you
    'Cause you're always busy doing things
    I really wish she had a different way of viewing things
    I think the city that we're from just kinda ruined things
    It's such a small place, not much to do but talk and listen
    The men are jealous and the women all in competition
    And now your friends telling you stories that you often misinterpret
    And taint all the images of your "Mr. Perfect"
    I could tell that you been crying all night, drinking all summer
    Praying for your happiness, hope that you recover
    This is one I know you hated when you heard it
    And it's worse because you know that I deserve it

    Take a shot for me, ooh
    Take a shot for me, ooh
    Take a shot for me
    A shot for me
    A shot for me

    May your neighbors respect you
    Trouble neglect you, angels protect you
    And heaven accept you Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Aubrey Graham, Brian Alexander Morgan, Noah Shebib, Rainer Miller Blanchaer, Ray Anthony Smith, Tyrone Armstrong
