  • It's not me and you, it's not me it's you
    You're reckless and you know it, they don't love you like I do
    Say you're movin' on, well, I guess that's just the motion

    I guess that's just the motion, oh
    I guess that's just the motion, oh
    I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
    I guess that's just the motion (oh-oh)

    I don't have a fuck to give, I've been moving state to state
    In my leather and my Timbs like it's 1998
    And my dog Chubby Chub, that's my nigga from the way
    On the east side of the city, that's where everybody stay
    Seem like everybody calling 'cause they want me on their song
    It's like every time I touch it I could never do no wrong
    When they need a favor from you, man, they don't leave you alone

    But I guess that's just the motion
    Yeah, then that phone doesn't ring
    When they got everything, that's the motion, oh
    I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
    I guess that's just the motion

    Yeah
    Lookin' back on it, at least my pride is intact
    'Cause we said no strings attached and I still got tied up in that
    Everything that I write is either for her or about her
    So I'm with her even when I'm here without her and she know it
    The girl that I wanna save is like a danger to my health
    Try bein' with somebody that wanna be somebody else
    I always thought she was perfect when she was bein' herself
    Don't even know how to help

    But I guess that's just the motion
    Yeah, she'll probably come around
    Soon as I settle down, that's the motion, oh
    I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
    I guess that's just the motion
    I guess that's just the motion

    Nothin' less and nothin' more
    I hear your heart hit the floor
    I guess that's just the motion
    Talkin' to you is not enough, no
    I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
    I guess that's just the motion
    I guess that's just the motion, oh
    I guess that's just the motion, oh
    I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
    I guess that's just the motion Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Noah James Shebib, Sampha Lahai Sisay
